Rock Bands with the Worst Fanbaseschristangrant
The Top Ten
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
Some fans of this band say you should Kill Yourself for having a negative opinion on this band, good god their fanbase is terrible. - christangrant
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
This band is way overrated in the genre, but their music is at least decent, unlike some other bands in the genre (ahem ahem coldplay, ahem ahem)
Worst fanbase ever! They think Nirvana is the only good grunge band and they don’t care about other grunge bands. - Userguy44
I love nirvana but I agree that the fans can be pretty salty sometimes
Agree, they think Nirvana is the only grunge band...V 1 Comment
Highest comment-in-full-caps/second rate. Just go to the list Best Rock Bands of All Time and look at the comments. - Alkadikce
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
I'm surprised Led Zeppelin are too low, #20. I expected to see them in the top 3 to be honest. A comment by a Led Zeppelin fan on this site: "If Stairway to Heaven isn't everyone's favorite song then it's severely underrated." - Metal_Treasure
Literally enjoy attacking everyone who call lz #2 or less - AlphaQ
They treat Chester like the Messiah and that he was a God amongst men, he was a good vocalist but not best of all time material. The fanbase acts like their lyrics are so deep but they really aren't and are not that hard to understand. The fanbase also will tear you to shreds if you think that the band isn't that good or is overrated.
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
My god this band's fanbase is so annoying - christangrant
A crappy overrated band with a terrible fanbase similar to A7X although not as bad - christangrant
When a Megadeth fan says he is a Megadeth fan and likes a Metallica song Metallica fans say: Of course, you can like both.
When a Metallica fan says he is a Metallica fan and likes a Megadeth song Megadeth fans say: Well, we're glad there is at least one good song you like. But did you know Dave Mustaine wrote all of your favorite band's songs? - Alkadikce
I love Megadeth. But some fans will do anything to put down Metallica.
They attack you when you say Dave Mustaine isn’t a good singer. - Userguy44
The Megadeth fanbase consists of people bashing on anyone/whining about (mostly Metallica and Slayer fans) who prefers another Thrash band over Megadeth, I mean they are good band but not the best I prefer Metallica and Slayer, got a problem with that? then deal with it. This fanbase is what gives Thrash Metal's fanbase a bad name (possibly Slayer's as well but I'm not as annoyed by them) - christangrantV 1 Comment
They call them the greatest ever and call them rock. - Userguy44
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
Logic of their fans:
If you don't like Slipknot, you're a metal elitist.
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.
Their fans treat Tool like Chuck Norris. - Alkadikce
You're not allowed to say a bad word about them and when you do their fans tell you that you have no taste! It's really annoying! It says it all if even the band themselves don't even like the fans that have made them what they are!
A great band, with a not-so great fanbase. There's a reason why even Maynard has said he hates his fans. - cjWriter1997
They are called "Rock" when they are a crappy boy band with an annoying fanbase - christangrant
Never seen any fans of them, but I wouldn’t be suprised if they are very obnoxious. - Userguy44
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
I thought this list was rock bands with the worst fanbases, not “crunkcore” (more like drunkcore) bands with non-existent fanbases. - 3DG20
Billie Joe Armstrong is a little bitch - ReturnOfScorpio
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
At least 70% of the Marilyn Manson fans I’ve encountered will hate you and most likely send you death threats if you even say you don’t like him or his band. - 3DG20
If you say you hate Manson, you’re labeled a bible thumper and a triggered right wing bitch. At least that’s what happened to me when I said I prefer other acts. - ReturnOfScorpio
Granted this band has been irrelevant for the last 20+ years but I consider their fans to be one of the worst, specifically online. In any of their popular videos from what I've seen their fans view them as the greatest band that ever lived, despite them having only one hit song (although I'm sure there are songs that many of their fans know that are "popular"). And don't get me started on their lead singer, because they view him like a god and that he's the greatest singer to ever live since he had one of the highest vocal ranges. Also if you try to say that this band isn't that good you will be bombarded with fans saying how your opinion is wrong or any profanity that makes them sound like little kids. And come to think of it I feel like their fans consist of people in their mid 50s that live in a basement and have nothing to do with their lives. - polofan
All of them hate RHCP. - Userguy44
Granted this band is irrelevant and has been for the last 20+ years but the fanbase is probably one of the worst I've seen, specifically online. There are people that think that they're the greatest band of all time and worship their singer like a god. Also there happen to be elitists that say that they only listen to their music and trash talk any rock bands that became more popular than them. And if you give an opinion saying that this band sucks will result in fans trash talking you and saying you are complete idiot.
I personally have a huge dislike towards them, specifically their lead singer who looks and sounds like a douchebag, and just looking or saying the name leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
I love Pink Floyd, but the fanbase is super oversensitive, and apparently just liking one band better than them means you apparently have bad music taste. - XxembermasterxX
I don't think their fanbase is so bad. Can't compare with the fanbases of Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Nirvana, A7X, Black Sabbath, Megadeth, Bob Dylan, and many more. - Metal_Treasure
That’s sad. Why does a great band have such fans like that? - Userguy44
By far the worst, most obnoxiously pretentious fanbase of wrong-generationing 14 y.o's out there. Avoid at all costs.
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.
But that is irrelevant since that's only a select few and that doesn't mean every Metallica fan is like that plus that happened years ago. - christangrant
Me, bad? Oh... OK, I am bad. - Metal_Treasure
CountBlagorath totally exposed Death's fanbase.
As much as I love this band, a lot of the fans assume that anyone who doesn’t like them is automatically a Justin Bieber fan and therefore will threaten them if they even say they don’t like them. I also hate how half of the people that claim to be Three Days Grace fans give Adam all of the credit and treat the other 3 as if they don’t do anything. I’ve even seen people talking about killing Adam’s wife all because he married her and not them. What a great fanbase this is. - 3DG20
They say they're the best band ever even when all the songs sound the same and unoriginal... - AnimeSportsFan619
I agree. Good band but bad fanbase. - Userguy44
No idea how they weren’t on the list. Every single Hollywood Undead fan I’ve encountered act like they’re the greatest thing ever, and god forbid anyone who doesn’t agree with them because these edgy little 12 year olds will throw a fit if you’re one of those people. I have yet to find a Hollywood Undead fan who can respect opinions, and on top of having one of the worst, if not the worst fanbase in rock, the band itself is almost as bad as Limp Bizkit, and both of which are perfect examples of how not to do rap rock. - 3DG20
Pretentious and obnoxious fan base like the band itself.
