Top 10 Rock and Metal Artists with the Most Annoying Fan Bases

The Top Ten

1 Megadeth Megadeth is an American thrash metal band from Los Angeles, California. Megadeth was formed in 1983 by guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson, shortly after Mustaine was fired from Metallica. They have released 15 studio albums to date, and have gone through many lineup changes, with Dave more.

"Metallica is rubbish! They sold out and nowadays they're cover band of themselves. Megadeth has always stayed true to Thrash Metal. Dave Mustaine invented Thrash. Megadeth is the best band ever! "

Let's forget about the fact that Megadeth also kind-of strayed from Thrash during the mid-late 90s, starting with Youthanasia (Which was good in its own right). Also, notice how Risk isn't mentioned. That album was worse than St. Anger and Risk was Megadeth's attempt at a "Black Album". Oh, Megadeth was the least influential out of the Big Four, and even then, they didn't invent Thrash (That goes out to Venom).

That being said, I still like Megadeth and I go back on them time and again. But jeez, their fanbase is among the most obnoxious among a genre that already has a negative reception for its many fanbases. - CrimsonShark

Mostly they bash Metallica fans, saying that Megadeth invented Thrash, Dave is a better singer even though he sucks at singing, Metallica sucked after the Black Album etc. Why can’t you just enjoy both bands? - Userguy44

They Bash on Everything that isn’t Megadeth. They’re also completely bias. With that being said, Megadeth is my second favorite band, so I don’t hate them. - awesomedp900

Noice band - LucarioLov3

They rose to fame with their 1986 album Reign in Blood, and is credited as one of the big four of thrash metal bands, the others being Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax. more.

Their more extreme fans are extraordinarily defensive, if you say one thing negative of Slayer, they’ll either attack you or unnecessarily overanalyze your statement all because you said something negative/critical of Slayer and they don’t like that. Honestly has a worse fanbase than Megadeth, at least Megadeth fanboys can be somewhat civil.

Members were Freddie Mercury (Vocals and Piano), Brian May (Guitar, Vocals), Roger Taylor (Drums, Vocals), and John Deacon (Bass Guitar, Vocals).

Many explicit hate comments left on my lists because they're not #1 there.
Fanbase is obnoxious and immature...They need to accept that there's no "best band".. - Ananya

Yeah they can be, but it isn’t the bands fault. Not every Queen song is good and respecting opinions would be nice right? - Userguy44

Their original name was Groundswell until they changed it to their current name in 1997. more.

I love Three Days Grace, and the fanbase isn’t the worst, but it’s annoying when a lot of fans assume that anyone who doesn’t like them is automatically a Justin Bieber fan, and some of them act like Adam is the only important member. “Adam is so cute”, “Adam is so hawt”, “I wanna f*** Adam”, (I’m not kidding...) “Adam this”, “Adam that”. I love Adam too, but what about Neil, Brad and Barry? - 3DG20

I love Linkin Park, but I absolutely hate the fanbase. I saw a comment on a video where Chester broke his wrist and kept playing that said they weren’t a fan of Linkin Park and even gave reasons, plus they still respected Chester for still playing. It’s not like they just started talking about how “Linkin Park sucks” or “I’m glad Chester broke his wrist”, yet everyone still bashes on them. - 3DG20
