Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). more.

They keep on saying that they are the saviors of metal when they aren't metal and they didn't save anything Pantera is the real savior of metal plus they are a Mediocre band that for some reason is called one of the best bands of all time which is false - christangrant

Yes, I agree. I am the prime example of it. - zxm

2 Blood on the Dance Floor Blood on the Dance Floor Blood on the Dance Floor is an American scene duo currently consisting of Dahvie Vanity and Fallon Vendetta that formed in 2006. Former members include Jayy von Monroe (2009-2016) and Garrett Ecstasy (2009). All of them provided vocals to the project. more.

It gets even worse when some people (both fans and non-fans) think they are a metal band. They are nowhere near metal. - Metal_Treasure

If there is anyone who likes this awful abomination known as a"band" then they are a really bad fan base - christangrant

3 5 Seconds of Summer 5 Seconds of Summer 5 Seconds of Summer are an Australian pop-rock band from Sydney that formed in 2011. The group were originally YouTube celebrities, posting videos of themselves covering songs from various artists during 2011 and early 2012. They rose to international fame while touring with One Direction on the Take more.

They are called "Rock" when they are a crappy boy band with an annoying fanbase - christangrant

4 The Beatles The Beatles The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. The members consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They were soon known as the foremost and most influential act of rock era. Rooted in skiffle, beat, and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented more.

Forget Radiohead and their fanbase, people think that this band is infallible and are gods among music. If anything, their most acclaimed album isn't even what it's described as. Also, if Pet Sounds never existed, they would just be a boy band, and nothing else. - SwagFlicks

5 Twenty One Pilots Twenty One Pilots Twenty One Pilots is an American musical duo that originates from Columbus, Ohio. Currently there are two members. The lead singer, Tyler Joseph, and the drummer, Josh Dun. At the 2016 American Music Awards, they won two AMAs for Favorite Pop/Rock Artist, and Favorite Alternative Artist. Twenty One more.

If this is considered a rock band then I hate their fan base because they keep saying how they are the greatest band ever whent they are a bad band and the fact people call them "Rock" is sad - christangrant

The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

Indeed. Now whatever merits the band may have (which I would argue that they have a lot), their fanbase takes those merits are blows them out of proportion, heavily overpraising any new release by them as if it were the second coming. - Mrveteran

While I agree that the fanbase of this band is pretty bad for the most part, it really shouldn't detract from their positives, which they do have a lot of. - SwagFlicks

Oh my the amount of overpraise this band gets from its fans is insane they are a descent band but not the greatest band ever like some say - christangrant

7 Asking Alexandria Asking Alexandria Asking Alexandria are an English metalcore band from York, North Yorkshire formed initially in 2008 by lead guitarist Ben Bruce along with former lead singer Danny Worsnop, bassist Joe Lancaster, keyboardist and synth player Ryan Binns, and current members drummer James Cassells and rhythm guitarist more.

A crappy overrated band with a terrible fanbase similar to A7X although not as bad - christangrant

The members include Chester Bennington (vocals), Mike Shinoda (rapping vocals, pianist), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture more.

The most split fanbase out of all of these. Can't have a conversation on the internet about them without some fans complaining about something (whether it's their new style or which album is worse/best or anything! ) This honestly should be number one for this reason. - cjWriter1997

The Newcomers

? Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides is an American rock band currently consisting of Andy Biersack (vocals), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (guitar), Christian Coma (drums) and Ashley Purdy (bass), that formed in 2006 in Ohio. more.

The Contenders

11 Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

Actually Imagine Dragon is alternative pop. And alternative pop is a combined genre alternative rock and pop. They even played some solos. It's their excessive use of pop style that made them look like pop. But they have rock style too. - zxm

Same as Twenty One Pilots they are a bad band that people call "Rock" - christangrant

They aren't alt rock they are Pop and you just proved why I hate this fanbase - christangrant

I started out as an imagine dragon fan. they might not make the best music, but the fanbase is pretty good. they don't obbess over the artist,or try to shove their taste down others throats.

12 Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American pop rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

The original lineup was James Hetfield (Vocalist and Rhythm guitarist), Dave Mustaine (Lead Guitar), Lars Ulrich (Drums), Ron McGovney (Bassist). The group came into mainstream from their Self-Titled album and the hit single "Enter Sandman". more.

Those who say thrash metal is the most complex metal genre and metallica is the most talented/complex band, need to listen more metal songs. Thrash metal is nowhere near genres like neoclassical metal, prog metal or heavy metal. Some people even say thrash metal is the god of metal only because of metallica. Won't admit Lars Ulrich can't beat drums. - zxm

Some fans threatened to shoot Lou Reed for the LuLu album. Really shows the maturity.

Me, bad? Oh... OK, I am bad. - Metal_Treasure

My god this band has a annoying fanbase I hate this band and they ruined Hallowed Be Thy Name which is a disgrace to Metal music - christangrant
