Top 10 Rock Artists that are Not for EveryoneFor this list I'm including rock artists that are either too complex, explicit, or unusual for listeners. I'm also including metal bands as well because metal is a subgenre of rock so it counts.
The Top Ten
Definitely NOT for everyone. This is a legit satanic band. All the members are absolutely insane. Their guitarist was a satanist, their drummer is a racist, and their bassist is a murderer. I seriously don't recommend this band to anyone who wants to get into metal.
I actually like Death Metal, one of the best genres. However, I don't like Black Metal because it is too Satanic and I am Christian, so yeah. every time I watch the music videos, they literally do things worshipping Satan, and burn down churches. - AnimeDrawer
I hate Black Metal and Death Metal, so I agree with the Top 2 choices. - DCfnaf
I think Euronymous wasn't satanist, he was just insane as hell. And he wanted to kill Varg, Varg just protected himself (Varg has a youtube channel named ThuleanPerspective, and I saw he replied to someone "Euronymous was just a loser, a nobody. Everybody knew it back then"). Dead was depression, and he was interested in the postmortem theme since his age 10 if I know well. This band is really sick anyway I admit it, and their music is very dark and the lyrics is evil, so it's definitely not for anyone. - somekindofaguyV 1 Comment
Their songs are all really offensive and would have people up in arms about how truly dirty they were.
Does anyone actually like these idiots? - DCfnaf
I don't listen to their music at all. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome
They are a joke band, I believe. - djpenquin999
How is rem not for everyone
That you would refer to any of these sociopaths as "artist" defies comprehension.
If you thought Allin was explicit then wait til you see Cannibal Corpse. This band is really extreme with very gorey lyrics and album covers that would completely turn off anyone.
This dude was insane. He would always beat up his fans, parade around onstage naked, and eat his own feces. Not to mention that his graphic lyrics are enough to shock all the soccer moms out of their minds.
They mostly dress up as alien monsters and kill celebrities onstage in a darkly comedic way. Their sense of humor is certainly not for everybody.
Their music and humor can be a bit weird, so if you're not of noise/punk rock, you'll be a bit confused when you hear their music. - Kfox101
I know he used to be popular but he's fallen out of the mainstream pretty much so he deserves a spot on this list. This guy is really out there. His costumes, music videos, and performances are beyond terrifying and will probably scare people away from rock. He's definitely not for everyone.
Women would absolutely hate this band. Their lyrics are absolutely sexist and misogynistic. Don't play this around any women.
Even though their frontman is Catholic, their lyrics are very sacrilegious and explicit. Not a good band for average listeners.
Just like Blind Guardian, not too heavy or explicit, but way too complex for listeners.
They're not too heavy or explicit, but they would be too complex for listeners. Plus, nobody would understand their lyrics which are about fantasy related topics (which makes sense cause fantasies aren't for everyone).
This band isn't even real. It's from a game called UmJammer Lammy.
Don't get me wrong, I love this band, my favorite actually. But the only thing that bothers me about this band is the What's My Age Again video, which according to reviews, the band runs naked, but other than that, I like everything else about them. Great band, however, definitely not for little kids, they talk about body parts and some other dirty jokes(I find them hilarious, mainly in their joke songs) and they curse a lot in those songs. Plus the What's My Age Again video is so innapropriate, which is why I am never planning on watching it. Great band, but not for overprotective parents or little kids. However, they have a good amount of meaningful songs, and most of their music videos are clean, like First Date and Down. Even the band themselves said their performances are not meant for younger teens and children, so at least they don't encourage bad role modeling and know how to stay real. - AnimeDrawer
