Top 10 Worst Singers of All Time
Justin Bieber is best known for his songs "Baby" and "What Do You Mean". He currently has seven videos that exceed 1 billion views on YouTube, which are "Baby", "What Do You Mean?", "Sorry", "Love Yourself",... read more
Good grief! This man doesn't know when to put on a shirt, does he? I know someone who looks up to him as a role model and inspiration, but there is nothing inspiring or great about him, except for his washboard abs, which everyone knows are implanted to make him look "sexy." His song "Boyfriend" was trashy and wrong on many levels, and his "Baby" song was disgusting. All of his songs are about sleeping around with multiple women. His voice is downright annoying, and his songs sound like they could be a porn soundtrack. I really hate him, and I know that he's not good. Running around topless at concerts, making racist parodies, and singing about sleeping around? Great role model (NOT)! His fans can't see past his fake abs.
This guy honestly is ANNOYING. And I don't get why so many teenage girls simp for him. He is nowhere near "hot". (Yes, I tend to make fun of simps.) But to his teenage fangirls: "Get a life and go touch grass for once."
Despite her controversial songs, Brent Staples from "The New York Times" claimed her to be 'the most influential female rapper of all time', presumably... read more
Normally, I would vote for Justin Bieber, Kesha, or Lil Wayne, because they all fall short in my opinion. However, while I don't particularly enjoy one-hit wonders like Carly Rae Jepsen and Rebecca Black, I also know they haven't done much to harm the music industry. Justin Bieber, Kesha, and Lil Wayne may not be to my taste, but voting for them would take away the dishonor from the one singer who rightfully deserves it: Nicki Minaj.
No one has done more harm to rap in recent years, and no one could be more overrated or sound more awful. With poor lyrics, autotune, and inexplicable popularity, Nicki Minaj will usher us into the next generation of music - if you could call it that - a generation that I am not looking forward to. It's music producers like her that make me wonder if there was any logical reasoning behind Kurt Cobain's suicide.
This "thing" has to be everyone's 1st choice. Zero talent, zero skills, and yet it still keeps getting jobs. If only one job, they play its songs on the radio every day. Well, at least there is one thing I envy about deaf people.
Yeah, and "she" looks as if a blind 5-year-old kid with Tourette syndrome made plastic surgery on a really rotten potato and a few bags with old rags and then put them together with a really bad joke.
He is extremely terrible at singing. I am surprised his band is actually considered music. His lyrics are degrading towards women, and there is so much proof that he is a rapist, yet his silly little "Slash Gash Terror Crew" denies all of it.
His appearance looks awful, and I don't care if he is being himself. I can't believe teenagers who are old enough to understand things actually look up to this man. Unbelievable. He deserves a spot near Justin Bieber.
I decided to listen to his live performance of Candyland out of curiosity, and Dahvie Vanity has the worst live vocals ever. His voice is so bad that it is not even funny. This guy has never proven he can sing. How can anyone go watch that? I would have thrown tomatoes at him if I were there. I'd rather listen to a guy that sounds like he is about to barf live than to hear Dahvie Vanity sing without autotune, most annoying awful voice ever. He should be number 1.
I liked her before when she was a true role model. When I was little, I'd always watch Hannah Montana and be amazed at how beautifully she sang. But after she changed, I couldn't even look at her anymore. She tried to act like someone she wasn't to fit into the more "popular" singing group. Now, looking at how some of these singers have changed, I'm hoping that I don't turn out this way because I want to be a singer.
Maybe if she was the Hannah Montana I used to know, I wouldn't have hated her as much as I do now. As she continued to grow up, she started to become uncontrollable and crazier. She is not the Miley Cyrus I used to know, and along with her personality changing, it seems as if her voice is also starting to deteriorate. I don't really know the right choice of words to describe it.
Oh Miley, what happened to you? Back then, when you were Hannah Montana, you were only mildly annoying. Now, you're... this. Please, I beg of you, do the world a favor: get out of the music business. Please, get out and learn how to behave like a normal human being.
How is Yoko Ono not number one on this list!? She has no talent and broke up one of the greatest bands of all time! We got some good music after the Beatles broke up, but we also got Yoko Ono, who sounds like a goat that is dying a slow and painful death. And why on earth are John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Elvis, Michael Jackson, and Ozzy Osbourne on this list!? They were actually talented people who should not be on the same list as Yoko Ono!
Yoko only had a singing career because of her brainwashing association with John Lennon. She was terrible in every way, including her need to control everything. Today, most of the singers on this list can't sing a lick. It's all rap or talking, drowned in lip-sync. Whoever put Elvis on this list is a total idiot. They should be banned from any top 10 lists forever!
Yoko sounds like a goat dying. The only reason why I don't hate her is that John Lennon loved her very much. She's probably one of the reasons why The Beatles broke up. Like she used Apple Corps to produce her crappy music, and she doesn't really respect Julian Lennon. Come on, Yoko, I thought you were "Peace & Love!".
Why does this pile of crap exist? First of all, he's a terrible person and got arrested for terrible things. Secondly, he has lots of bad music, such as "Love Me" and "Lollipop". He can be good every now and then, but he's definitely deserving of the list.
Raspy, awful, ugly voice. His rap is annoying and worthless. It's impossible to derive any positive meaning from his songs except for explicit content. Rap can be enjoyable to listen to, but Lil' Wayne has tarnished its reputation.
I have never heard a voice as bad as his. I listened to the song No Love, and then I vomited. Maybe he thinks that rap just means swearing. I don't know how he includes so many explicit words in just one line.
My friends, we need to talk. We have made many mistakes over the years. Making this kid popular was one of them. And the worst part is, everyone is being soft with their criticisms. We must tell him like it is and tell him - just tell him - how much of a pain in the rear he is before he gets so far up in his own rear end.
Please, dear Top-Tenners, do whatever you can to stop him. We left Justin Bieber alone because he was just a kid, but then he started to get this idea of fame in his own head...and then the piles of idiocy kicked in. Let's not let this happen again. Stop this monster. And for the love of humanity, tell him to do his homework. I don't care how many people say, "Oh, but he's just a kid!" Tell him what his issues are and give him the criticism he deserves!
He's still a musician who can't sing and sounds almost too robotic with his excessive auto-tuning. Despite this, he still thinks he's a good singer.
She sang one of the worst songs of all time, and this is something that's always going to be a part of her and her career. In this industry, people tend to remember performers' first hits rather than their later work. That's why Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Jennifer Lopez are still so famous because their first songs and albums were fantastic. Even though right now, they don't produce the same quality of music, people still like them because they remember them from "back in the day." My point is that going into the industry with a strong first big hit is everything, and Rebecca blew her opportunity to shine because even though her later songs (In your words, Person of interest) are much better than "Friday," people always remember that first song.
Obviously, I don't know why she's still singing... (I'm going to say this as politely as possible), but she actually doesn't seem to have any talent whatsoever. I'm sorry. Maybe she would've been useful for something other than singing, or maybe her talent isn't singing. It could be writing a novel or an autobiography, or maybe she can design clothes. So anyways, she doesn't deserve to become famous or receive death threats... Plus, I believe that her fame may be a bad influence on her, and she honestly cannot sing as well as other celebs. (The studio tends to use more autotune than "Friday," and that does not seem to be heroism.)
This man is not someone I respect. His music is very poor in quality. Let's talk about "Trumpet Lights," a song that actually exists. The popping and screeching noises are guaranteed to make your ears hurt, and I mean that literally. He is also autotuned and grating in all of his songs, making him hard to listen to. His lyrics often objectify women.
Additionally, he has done some reprehensible things in real life, like threatening people with firearms and damaging property. We will also never forget his actions against Rihanna, someone who is talented and produces good music.
I don't think I've ever hated a singer as much as this piece of trash. First off, he beat a woman, and he hardly seems sorry about it. He even threatened a girl with a gun a few months ago. Second, even after what he's done, he's constantly writing songs objectifying women like "Deuces," "Loyal," and "Ayo." Finally, his music. People say this guy is talented? He has this really annoying, grating voice that makes me want to stop listening to any song he's on. (He ruined Kanye's "Waves," which could've been awesome.) And he constantly just oversings everything.

Why isn't this snitch higher? He's a horrible person who makes mindless music for brainwashed people, has had multiple charges, and has been released from jail early only for him to make more horrible music.
There's nothing I can say that hasn't been expressed before. This guy is terrible, both as a rapper and as an individual. He comes off as just another punk trying to act tough.
I don't know who the frick got him into the hip-hop industry because this guy definitely brought down the standard of rap. His voice is terrible, like he's having an asthma attack or something.
She can't sing! She only uses auto-tune to sound better. In live performances, she lip-syncs, but if not, she sounds like a choking cow! Her albums have a robotic voice, showing how much effort was given just to auto-tune her voice. That's how bad she sings!
I used to love her. I even did a biography project on her, but now my tastes have changed, and she's not my type anymore. I grew up to realize she can't sing live and lip-syncs. She used to sing very well at a young age, but her voice deteriorated as she aged.
She heavily relies on auto-tune to sound somewhat good. There's a leaked song of hers on YouTube that reveals how horrible her real voice sounds without her precious auto-tune.
Not only is she accused of child abuse, but she also seems to lack genuine talent. With the aid of autotune, anyone could likely replicate what she produces.
If singing is your profession, you have to have good vocals. No, you don't have to sound like Whitney Houston, but your voice does at least need to hit the notes! Using your health and sob stories as an excuse for bad singing will only make people lose respect for you. I respect that she has her struggles, but if singing is not her forte, then it would be best that she does something that she is good at. If she really does love music, then it would benefit her if she got a vocal coach. Her fans are too nice to her when she doesn't even respect them, especially when she lip syncs live. It just fascinates me how she made it this far.
Please give me a reason why this girl is not in the top 10. She's honestly one of the worst singers ever in this generation, and the only thing that made her stand out is because she's pretty and a great actress. She sounds really terrible, and I can't listen to her sing live for more than 5 seconds.
The people who actually find her voice 'sexy' and 'cute' must have something stuck on their eardrums because it doesn't sound pleasing to the ears at all, like seriously. Okay, well maybe her voice doesn't sound that bad in her music videos, but trust me, you might want to prepare your ears if you want to listen to her sing live and without autotune. The crowd can't even hear her, even with a microphone in her hand because all she does is whisper into the mic.
I agree with the fact that she's a great actress, but hey, we're not talking about the top ten worst actresses. Let's face it: Selena is so damn overrated.
One of the most overrated, greediest fools in the music industry. All she raps about is money and sex. She's not creative, she's not talented, all of her songs sound the same. Her voice is extremely bothersome, and I'd rather throw up.
All I'm going to say is, how is she not higher up on the list? I guess not enough people have heard her song WAP, though in my opinion, all her songs are bad, just like her personality.
Stop showing off your body. You aren't good, and Nicki Minaj is better than this bad artist. Put that nasty white tongue back into your mouth and go get a life.
She is so annoying. I hate her. Her fanbase seems to consist of hyperactive 14-year-old girls who love to start arguments and get easily offended.
Her voice is okay, showing reasonable talent, but her song topics often revolve around feminism (which isn't necessarily bad, but claiming god is a woman is quite a statement), sexual themes, young relationships, attractive boys, or just sassy, rude content. She also fills my Instagram feed with poorly taken photos of herself making kissy faces at the camera.
Does anyone else feel the same?
Sorry if I may have offended any Arianators, but it's based on my experiences.
Oh my God! Why isn't this monstrosity of a singer higher up on the chart? Seriously, when she plays, I'd rather die than listen. What I really don't get about her is how she is famous. Stick to Nick! Ariana doesn't have any talent whatsoever, and the fans I know of hers are 9 or younger when you have no taste and you just stick to stuff you hear once. This woman claims herself a god, but I wish she could just go to hell!
There are other singers ten times better than her who don't have a super nasally voice that annoys you until you'd just want to jump off a cliff. I mean, take Taylor Swift, for example. At least Swifties are nice and don't get offended over tiny things. They do like to fight back, but that's so much better than being offended - once again, 9-year-olds.
So I think this horrible person should go right to the top, not of good singers, but the worst in history!
There are two different types of Auto-Tune users. There are those who try to use Auto-Tune to either enhance their personality or add a cool effect to their song. While I can't say I really like the sound of Auto-Tune, I at least respect artists who try to do more with Auto-Tune than the average pop singer.
Then there are people like Jason Derulo, who use Auto-Tune to cover up their lack of talent. Only in Jason Derulo's case, he even failed at that, and his voice sounds like he's being strangled by the Auto-Tuner.
Truly, people always complain about Jacob Sartorius, but over the past few years, we've let someone just as bad dominate the charts with terrible songs like "Talk Dirty" and "Wiggle." He 1) cannot sing without auto-tune and 2) even with auto-tune, sounds terrible. We should not allow this man onto our playlists any longer.
Voting for him because he's still not in the Top Ten. Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber (2013 onwards), and Miley Cyrus sound fine with their vocals, meanwhile, Jason Derulo sounds like a yelping dog. And he has no good songs. For these reasons, he should be MUCH higher.
He's a terrible teenager who thinks he's cool or talented, acting intoxicated and trying to adopt a gangsta persona. Even Selena Gomez appears more talented in comparison. Gucci Gang isn't a great song.
This rapper sings annoying songs. He is so bad at rapping he doesn't know anything about rapping, and he doesn't know what people feel. I got a fever from Gucci Gang.
Gucci gang, Gucci gang, Gucci gang. I mean come on, "man." Even birds sing better than that.
This girl is a Britney wannabe and sounds terrible trying. The only reason she even has a singing career is that she bought it. No recording studio hearing her voice would even consider her. She's worse than everyone above her and deserves to be higher. If anyone says Selena uses pure autotune, the real queen of autotune is right here.
Little Miss Talentless has also dabbled in the career of singing for some unknown reason. She's not good at singing or making music. There's way too much autotune.
She bought her way into singing even though she can't sing. She sounds like she inhales helium instead of air.
I think Nickelback is a very generic band, so I just don't care for them at all. Chad's voice is not very good either.
It makes complete sense why Chad Kroeger would be on this list. Nickelback is just a really bad band in general.
The equivalent of Shrek gargling mouthwash on a rancid guitar solo. Someone, tell me why he isn't higher?
Good grief! This woman just doesn't know when to get dressed, does she? I know people who look up to her as a role model, but from what I can see, there is NOTHING inspiring about her. Her videos are so explicit they could practically be pornographic. Her clothes set a bad example for teenagers like me. Her S&M song was wrong on so many levels, her Diamonds song was repetitive and annoying. Her other songs have a subpar beat and silly lyrics. And don't get me started on the videos.
She's ALWAYS naked in her videos. Name ONE video where she's NOT naked...see, that's what I thought! She's a subpar singer and a professional stripper.
I'm just going to start by saying Rihanna looks great with red hair. Let's begin by discussing her 5th album, Loud. I ask myself: What happened to Rihanna? I feel like her whole image has changed. I've always liked Rihanna since she entered the music business in 2005. You know, back when she had that girl-next-door image and did sexy dancing and stuff. Remember her debut album, Music of the Sun? The one with her two hits "Pon De Replay" and "If It's Lovin' That You Want"? Those are good songs, and that album made me like her even more. Not because of how pretty she is, but because of how good her music was. That's the Rihanna I knew. What the heck happened?
She continued to produce other hits from her subsequent albums. I liked her music up until Loud. Most of the songs on that album I didn't like. The only songs on it that I did enjoy are "California King Bed" (which is a really good song) and "Only Girl" (even though it sounds like many of her other pop songs today). Her other songs on that album have just been altered a bit. She sounds awful, uses auto-tune, and is just off in all her songs. I'm thinking: Really? Especially with "S&M." When I saw that music video, I thought: What the heck? This isn't the Rihanna I know! What happened to the person I admired?
In my opinion, Chris Brown is what happened. Rihanna, and women in general, should stay away from Chris Brown. I really don't know what Rihanna is thinking. She should return to her girl-next-door look and stop with this "sexy" image, as it's completely unacceptable. Her 6th album wasn't any good either. I hope she changes, because I'm not liking the current Rihanna.
Mediocre singing. When she raps, it sounds like someone stuffed an iguana in her throat. Awful lyrics (not the worst).
And her "gangsta" impression...
Iggy, you're not fancy. Go away, please.
Oh yeah, we know how to spell your name, I-G-G-Y.
White Australian girls need to stick to their hot accents and not get plastic surgery and pose as gangsta rappers. It's just wrong. Save gangsta for the hot black ladies out there who don't have to fake it.
She only cares about butts. She's ugly, she has no good morals, she's fake, she's racist, and she's very stuck up. She only cares about herself, and she even appears as a bit sleazy to me.
The fact that talented singers like Ozzy Osbourne and Elvis Presley are ranked higher than this fake-ass garbage rapper makes me want to kill myself!
Soulja Boy has no talent. He's one of the three worst rappers ever, even worse than Lil Wayne. He can't rap! He's trash, pathetic, autotune, and all his songs sound the same! All he does in all of his songs is scream and repeat the same thing over and over again! His raps are so bad that they always make me laugh! No wonder if he's working at McDonald's or if he's in a junkyard drinking some bleach or Listerine. Why do you think the entire world has forgotten about him?
His rapping fails on any basic level, such as rhyming, flow, sense, delivery, and his beats are among the cheapest and least professional I've ever heard. Jeez, I can make better beats with my free software.
But that just wasn't enough. He just HAD to sing a whole song ("Turn My Swag On") just to prove that he would also be terrible at that.
Soulja Boy, really. I'm not trying to hate on you. I would always admit if you improved or even if you released music that is actually good. But the truth is, I've listened to a lot of your songs and even a full album, and there hasn't been one aspect where you succeeded.

One of the biggest douchebags in rock/metal history. Also, his vocals are grating, and his music is pretentious.
He is only famous for being a jerk who brags about his money, cars, and fame. Nobody cares if you are rich or if you were the first person to ever hit 5 million subs in 6 months. Or if your fat friend thinks England is a city. Go back to Disney, phony.
Okay, which idiot put Elvis Presley, Ozzy Osbourne, and Kurt Cobain in front of this talentless hack? Jake Paul just needs to be at least in the top 10, ASAP!
It's Everyday Bro, Litmus, It's Christmas Day Bro, and YouTube Stars Diss Track are just crazy crap. He cannot sing, he got a few subscribers on his YouTube channel, and all he does is brag about how awesome he is. He deserves to be in #1.
