Worst Music Artists of the 2010s

The Top Ten
1 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) were a British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015. The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

Polluting the industry with their depressingly poor Pop music, One direction may capture the hearts of teenage girls worldwide, but at the end of the day, everyone knows that most of it isn't actually their work.

Their music is annoying, they have barely any talent, and they don't even like their own music.
Plus, their fanbase is made up of mainy little girls ages 9-12.
And, they are judged by LOOKS, not TALENT.

I can't understand why do people listen to this garbage. Their songs are a joke and the vocals are TERRIBLE.

They have a song called Best Song Ever that's pathetic.

2 Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj Onika Tanya Maraj, known professionally as Nicki Minaj (born December 8, 1982) is a Trinidadian/American rapper / pop music artist. Minaj is most known for her songs such as "Anaconda", "Super Bass", "Starships" and her feature on "Bang Bang". ...read more.

This horrible person ruined the rap music. Her voice is sooo annoying and her songs are only about sex. Rap was good back in the 90s and early 00s with 2Pac, Biggie Smalls and Eminem. This is GARBAGE.

The worst ever music artist, beyond a doubt. I hate everything, and I mean everything about her.

She is worse than One Direction, in my opinion. Her songs are repetitive and annoying.

This girl thinks she can sing, but she really can't. She sounds like a dying whale.

3 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. ...read more.

I would rather have somebody literally bang a trash can over and over and over again until my ears bleed and my brain pops out of my ears than listen to Justin Beiber.

Justin Bieber has remained quieter so far this decade, and has even announced his retirement, this however, does not take away the fact that he has still produced some absolutely abysmal records and has plagued radio airspace with singles that no one in their right minds would enjoy.

I really don't know that many people that like Justin Bieber. His music is tired, and there are barely any good songs.

His songs are not only crap, but he's also a dummy. Money doesn't buy happiness JB!

4 Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus Miley Ray Hemsworth (born Destiny Hope Cyrus), known as Miley Cyrus, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She was born on November 23, 1992, in Franklin, Tennessee, to Tish Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus. Her voice type is Mezzo-Soprano and has 4 octaves. She became a teen idol starring as the ...read more.

She wasn't always all that bad. Her voice now sounds like crap thanks to the excessive drug abuse, I mean come on! She can't sing "Wrecking Ball" on key! The AMA performance made my ears bleed. The VMA performance was just stupid. Her antics are kinda getting old. I don't think she'll last for much longer. When it comes to her actual singing, the talent she once had is no longer there. She sounds sick and manly every time she sings her new songs live. Sorry Milerz.

Bad example, and not a very good singer.
Party in the USA was probably her best song, and that came out, what? Five years ago?

Hannah Montana was actually what made her popular, and now that it's off-air, nobody really remembers her.
Plus, that new movie, So Undercover, isn't very good. *Yawn*

A Karen who thinks that she can become a serious singer. No more explanation.

5 PSY PSY Park Jae-sang, better known by his stage name Psy, stylized PSY, is a South Korean singer, songwriter, record producer and rapper.
6 Taylor Swift Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. ...read more.

Why do you people like this piece of garbage. Just because she is cute doesn't mean that she is a great singer. Taylor, you are nothing.

Pop was way better back in the 80s where we had Michael, Madonna, Prince and Whitney. This girl, Beyonce, Bieber, Gaga, Timberlake etc ruined pop music. Taylor, you'll never be good as Whitney.

7 Carly Rae Jepsen Carly Rae Jepsen Carly Rae Jepsen is a Canadian singer and songwriter from Mission, British Columbia, and later based in Vancouver. She is best known for her hit song "Call Me Maybe" which topped many charts in 2012.

Call Me Maybe? No, more like Call Me Never. This song is stupid and overly repetitive.

8 Kanye West Kanye West Kanye Omari West is an American rapper, songwriter, and fashion designer. He was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. After West's parents divorced, him and his single mother moved to Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 10, West temporarily moved to Nanjing, China, because his mother was teaching ...read more.

Disagree heavily, good songwriter, great producer. I think what people are upset with about him is that he's a douchebag, I agree, but you can be talented and be a douchebag at the same time

OMG! Just go and listen to his Bohemian Rhapsody cover! Even his crowd can sing better than him.

9 The Chainsmokers The Chainsmokers The Chainsmokers are an American DJ and production duo consisting of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. The EDM-pop duo achieved a breakthrough with their 2014 song "#Selfie", which was a top twenty single in several countries.
10 Rebecca Black Rebecca Black Rebecca Black is a YouTube personality and singer who's infamous for her 2011 single "Friday," which was the most disliked video on YouTube until "Baby" by Justin Bieber became the most disliked video in 2012. She has also released other songs, including "My Moment" and "Saturday".

Remember the crappy abomination of a "song" called Friday that came out in 2011? If I didn't know any better, I'd say she was a dying animal.

She uploaded one bad song that wasn't meant to be taken seriously. Everybody who voted for this are Fortnite addicted 10 year old plotagon using, Dennis and Mariplier megafans, low educated, kids who reference annoying cringey memes 24/7 and don't know any other Rebecca Black sing besides Friday.

I hate her nasal voice. She sounds like she snorted some crack with cat hair in it when she was like seven.
ANNOYING.

She's getting better, I heard.

The Contenders
11 Lady Gaga Lady Gaga Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. ...read more.

She is doesn't like our queen
She copied my 5 favorite female singers Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera, Britney, Nicki, Beyonce I bet
She is like a crap Madonna

I would rather have somebody literally bang a trash can over and over and over again until my ears bleed and my brain pops out of my ears than listen to his music.

14 Submarine Man Submarine Man Water Handblast (born Ardy Robert Andrews) better known by his name Submarine Man, is an American rapper known for his songs that heavily feature lyrics about foot fetishes as well as heavily autotuned vocals.
15 Carrie Underwood Carrie Underwood Carrie Marie Underwood is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She rose to fame as the winner of the fourth season of American Idol, in 2005. Her debut album, Some Hearts, was released in 2005.

All her songs either promote revenge/murder/violence (how classy! ) or the elimination of the separation of church and state in America. Maybe the latter reason is why The Religious Right eats up her music like there is no tomorrow, even if she promotes MURDER.

16 Madonna Madonna Madonna Louise Ciccone, known professionally as Madonna, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears. She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically ...read more.

Sorry, Madonna fans, but she is from the 1980s and her time with singing should be over. She sounds like a crappier Britney Spears.

17 Rihanna Rihanna Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian-American pop singer. Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003.

I can't stand Rihanna anymore. Her old music was fine, but now? UGHH
Diamonds was awful. We found love was awful.
I wonder where her talent went.

Garbage human being.

Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

Try to understand the reason or motivation why stuff like believer or enemy was written and what they mean by singing it. And then you realize that their music is basically just made to have some small sequences used

A part of me dies every time someone lists these as "rock".

They're pretty bad in my opinion.

Worst band of all time

25 6IX9INE 6IX9INE Daniel Hernandez, known by his stage name 6ix9ine, also known as Tekashi69 or simply Tekashi, is an American rapper.

He's a pedophile snitch who belongs in jail just like Dahvie Vanity.

How was he not on this list yet?
