Top Ten Once Good Artists That Should Stop Making MusicBboymakinwitthefrekfreak
The Top Ten
I guarantee you would not be saying that if you had been to one of McCartney's concerts. He may not be the singer he once was, but the man's still got it.
Taking it a step further, why should any musician stop producing new material? Granted, New isn't be on the same level as Revolver. (What really is? We hold Paul to ridiculously high standards.) But as an artist, you need to produce art for yourself first and the rest of the world second. What's wrong with that? I'd like to know. - PetSounds
Thank you for putting him first on this list. I get slated for saying he's lost his mojo. Clearly I'm not the only one who thinks so. He's had his day. - Britgirl
99-year old Paul McCartney could go onstage in a wheelchair and burp his songbook, and it would still be better than whatever pathetic excuse for a music artist is popular today.
If he went onstage, hummed a few of his Beatle hits, then smiled and waved to the crowd, maybe told a few jokes, he would still be 1000 times better than any of the new "artists" polluting the airwaves today.V 3 Comments
What?! Why is Green Day on here? Because their newest stuff isn't punk...? The reason for that is because they are EXPERIMENTAL and aren't willing to stick with just one genre of music and be snobs about it like other artists. Maybe it's not your thing, but it's not bad.
Bands like Weezer and The Rolling Stones still going, yet have lost so much relevance. Green Day on the other hand, is still going because like Radiohead, they keep experimenting. - naFrovivuS
They should have quit after Warning. But then they would be an overrated "what could've been" band like Nirvana. So maybe if they release American Idiot and show that Green Day could suck then that would have been a good album to quit after.
Guys, Revolution Radio has redeemed this once almost ruined band. Get it off number 1. - naFrovivuS
They're new album REVOLUTION RADIO. is one of my favourites. why you telling that he should stop. yeah. they're trilogy album are kinda bad but they can still make music. - Th3Zm0nst3rV 3 Comments
I would put Dr. Dre on this list if he didn't still make decent music, however Jay-Z is on it because he's basically the bad music making version of Dre... - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
She was great in the early 90's, but ever since she made Butterfly her material has been bad 90% of the time. - RnBLover
They're just boring man, I don't know what to say. They were original and cool in the early 2000's but turned into an alternative boy-band. I really can't say I'm still a fan, I deleted all my Coldplay songs around 2014 so I wouldn't get beat up. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
They used to be quite good alt rock/indie rock, now they turned EDM. The worst thing is, people still like them. - CabadePartyhunter
They're just another pop act nowadays - RalphSaad
Coldplay sucks!V 1 Comment
When Fall Out Boy went on hiatus in 2009, they should have never came back together as a band. "Under the Cork Tree" was enjoyable, there were some ok songs in that album, so why continue as a band when you've got a popular album that fans and critics love, and especially when the emo scene was losing momentum? Well, to sell out, make even worse pop songs, and lose all respect people once had for them. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
Fall out boy should make one more album that should be bad and that's it - Th3Zm0nst3r
Heck why are they on here there good - TopTenListmaker
No, in fact they shouldn't be on here because they were never good. - Brobusky
They should stop making music and slit their wrists already jc - BboymakinwitthefrekfreakV 1 Comment
Look, look, Rivers man, this thing is getting old. Your first 2 albums- awesome man, really great, but uh, here's the thing... When you think you're still 19 making silly rock songs while playing electric guitar at the Playboy mansion. You have kids man! Your over 40 years old!
You get a little sad for the guy when you look at the album covers, from Blue, to Green, to red albums... - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
Their doing much better now then they were in the 00s. The White album, EWBAITE and Hurley are great. - Cyrobian
Weezer from 2004-2010 should have been on this list but not anymore. Because they have redeemed themselves with EWBAITE and The White Album. There were some good tracks from Hurley but they clearly don't come close to Blue& Pinkerton.
"Marry the p****? " "Lick the middle like an oreo? " "She blow me like a tuba? " Just stop R Kelly, you're making yourself look like one big joke. - DaWyteNight
While never a master of his craft, West at least in the noughties and early 2010's had some talent and produced some really good songs and albums along the way. However, over the past few years, he seems to be more concerned with the celebrity aspect of his career, and is perfectly content with letting his music go to the wayside. As such, his music has dropped in quality dramatically over the last few years, as he is now more concerned with egotistical vanity projects (especially his recent Rihanna and Paul McCartney collaboration) in order to prove that he's a true auteur than he is making any more good music. Please stop Kanye, and if not just please get your act together instead. - Mrveteran
Kanye's lost it. Seriously, he makes himself look like a complete moron on Twitter, his lyrics have become cringeworthy as hell, and even his production has suffered. For the last couple albums, he's been throwing whatever half-baked ideas he can find in there, and they just don't stick. Either he needs to pull his head out of his ass, or quit. - Zach808
Grumble grumble grumble mumble mumble mumble, is the chorus of one of his songs. Need I say more?
He should've have started in the 1st place because his music sucks - Th3Zm0nst3rV 1 Comment
I loved Doggystyle, it was pure real hip hop. Then I started listening to Bush and after the second song I realized the whole album will be as horrible as the first 2 songs.
I can't believe he still raps... - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
At this point, Snoop is basically just the go-to rapper for any terrible artist to get a mediocre guest verse. When you're featured on Corey Feldman's "Angelic 2 The Core" album, that's your signal to retire. - Zach808
Yes... snoop dogg can stop - Th3Zm0nst3rV 1 Comment
It's pretty sad actually, that these guys think they're still relevant. They had a couple albums in the 80's, and that's where they should have stopped. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
When they were newer they were here and now they are just pop... supposed to be a heavy metal band. - Lucretia
Nooo...I love this band! Actually hated them about 10 years ago but they've grown on me and have become one of my favourite rock bands along with Bon Jovi and Nickleback. - Britgirl
The person above ^^^ (Britgirl) Has listed the most annoying bands. Bon Jovi and Nickleback. I'm not denying their talent but they along with definitely Leppard's concerts are 95% head-banging and tryingto get the crowd to cheer. Pathetic.
Songs of innocence was an amazing album and I was so happy they were appreciate enough to their fans to make it free. I love them so much and hope they continue making music for years to come - YOUnique253
"Songs of Innocence" was released free because no one would pay or appreciate it if it costed 10 bucks... - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
U2's next album better be worth my time
To me their first few albums were amazing but then they started sucking
How is this not number one?
They're 1st 3 albums were good. 4th and 5th album was okay but their new songs sucks. - Th3Zm0nst3r
What happened to her after Ray of Light? Rebel Heart was only very mediocre, and the hits from it basically scream retirement. - Swellow
Sus used to be good, now she's desperatelly trying to be "hip" and "cool" just to stay on the charts. - Martinglez
She sold out and does crap hipster trend music now instead of the beautiful music that made her famous to begin with. She was actually really good before the fame went to her head, but now I can't stomach her dime-a-dozen songs. I miss the days of Fearless and Speak Now...now we're stuck with Red and 1989 and God knows what else there is to come...ugh.
She was never good to begin with.
She is devil
No, they are good nowadays. Disagree? Listen to the Hunting Party. - Rorywilbren
They were never good, angsty emo trash
Yes yes yes. please stop linkin park. after the hunting party they should of stopped if they're fans would new if the one more light album was going to be terrible. Nu-metal... no. Nu-pop - Th3Zm0nst3r
They were decent, and still are okay. - Lucretia
Their 80s and 90s albums are thrash metal classics. After Youthanasia, though, they just haven't been able to keep up the momentum. Just as they seemed to be recovering in 2009, they hit us with Th1rteen, Super Collider, and Dystopia, three of the most underwhelming albums I've heard from a band I used to like. On top of that, Dave Mustaine has gone full-on Infowars conspiracy-theory nutjob in terms of lyrics. Please, Megadeth, just stop. - Zach808
Once good? - Lucretia
I'm pretty sure they've stopped making music, but maybe they'll make a stupid tribute album like they did with Michael Jackson. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
