The Top Ten

1 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, song writer, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada (despite once claiming he was Part-Indian) and he is Christian . He is the son of an author, Pattie Mallet . ...read more.

I'm surprised he is not higher in this list. - ShyChick

Why do people always say he's that bad? I mean, he's not the best singer in the world. But I still think he has a lot of talent. - dipperpinesfangirl618

He is killed the music along with Nicki Minaj, no doubt. - 05yusuf09

It's always obvious he's number 1. - Neonco31

2 People Getting Judged On Looks

Madonna was the one who started this stupid trend. She paved the way for mediocre singers to become famous because of their sex appeal and their willingness to create a provocative and overtly sexual image of themselves.

This is one of the absolute worst things.

Justin at Number One? People still make good music, just it does not get popular enough. - 445956

3 Rap

There are many rappers that are better than Eminem and its not too hard to find them so open your eyes. - MLGPoossySlayer6969

One word. Eminem! He's the ONLY reason this shouldn't be on the list! - dipperpinesfangirl618

I hate it, and I also hate that people dislike for opinion, - Harri666

I disagree rappers like 2pac Eminem notorious b.i.g and even some current rappers like Kendrick Lamar aren't that bad I'm not saying rap is the best (there is a lot of bad current rap) but it's definitely better then some other genres (country ) - samanime

4 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) are an British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015 . The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

These guys and Bieber will soon fade away, we should be so lucky as to have Rap fade away just as quickly.

Though I'm pissed that they did not disband, I think they actually sounded BETTER without zayn...

If Justin Bieber joined 1 direction I would kill myself

6 Greed

Its all about the money, not music - gemcloben

7 Auto-Tune

9 MTV MTV MTV is an American basic cable and satellite television channel which is a part of the "Viacom Music and Entertainment Group" which is the flagship Property of the Viacom Media Networks division of Viacom, of which it is a subsidiary.

Video killed the radio star.

This gets my vote because MTV is a Tele-VISION and focuses more on what you see (looks) than on what you hear (music). - Metal_Treasure

Brought us all this glam metal - gemcloben

MTV always cares incompetent pop stars. - 05yusuf09

10 The rumor of rock and metal being the devil's music

Could at least put this at number 4?

Curse the person who spread this stupid rumor. - Metalthomas

It is actually racist. - 445956

Well that is so wrong...that was the best music [punk rock too] everyone at my school is either a pop or rap fan

The Contenders

11 Pop

Its made with ghost producers and sounds all the same.

12 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

The reality is that the kids who hate on her are intimidated by the fact that a regular, everyday kid from Pittsburgh, who is their own age, has emerged onto the world stage with a historic talent level.

Ruined this site more than music - gemcloben

13 Record Labels
14 Twerking V 3 Comments
15 No More Guitar Solos

They may not be applicable to all genres, but they do take a lot of talent. I don't really see songs that have pretty long guitar solos nowadays. But I'm not saying that having no guitar solos is bad.

The only number 1 songs of the year with guitar solos are thinking out loud and rude. there not really eddie Van Halen. - gemcloben

If you want guitar solos, listen to metal music! - Metal_Treasure

16 Napster

There is better ones than napster now - gemcloben

No one uses Napster anymore. We have piratebay and it's 100 times better then Napster. I support music downloading and if you don't like it tough - Sabbath

19 Modern popular artists dissing old classic artists

Like how Justin Bieber called The Beatles the crap band and how Gucci Mane said that he is better than Nas.

If I were a popular modern musician, I wouldn't dare call Joy Division "unnecessary crap" or pass Patti Smith off as "a product of that damned CBGB thing"...

20 Simon Cowell Simon Cowell Simon Phillip Cowell is an English reality television judge, entrepreneur, philanthropist, film, record, and television producer.

Simon Cowell is awesome. If you think he's too mean then you'd best not go into showbiz because compared to normal talent observers, he's super nice. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

He is one of the reasons why the Charts is Crap.

The biggest ass to ever walk the face of the earth.
