Top Ten Things That Should Happen In Music In 2016


The Top Ten

1 Nicki Minaj Has No More Fame

It think that's better than have her die at age 27.

I checked and she's actually 33

Damn,she is like 37 or something.

2 Iggy Azalea Gets No Fame

Yes she sucks, she can't sing.

Iggy officially is the artist to have her fame dwindled the quickest. No one has cared about her since 2014. - WonkeyDude98

This has already happened, her entire 2016 concert schedule was canceled.

She's the white nick minaj, so I' m sorry to say this, but we will probably here more music from her. UGH!

3 Justin Bieber Never Makes Music Again

He used to be annoying, now his music is so boring, he needs to retire.

I think next year, Justin will not make music because he goes to his stupid,fake,ridiculous and shameful tour and girls who love him also waste their money and time if they go there. - BeaM456

4 People Become Less Stereotypical About Metal

Needs to happen. Now. - Turkeyasylum

It really has to happen but I think it'll never happen...except you live in Taiwan where
the vocalist of CHTHONIC may be president soon. - CannibalCorpse

5 Meghan Trainor Stops Hating On Men and Skinny Girls

Even better, she quits music. - RiverClanRocks

Meghan Trainor needs to quit the music industry asap. - Catacorn

I think you guys may have

Misinterpreted that song entirely. - Cheese567

6 Justin Bieber Retires

That would be a dream.

*pulls out record of Queen's We Are The Champions* Looks like I finally have a use for this. - RiverClanRocks

7 People Make Good Pop/Rap Music

Rap used to be so innocent and fun you know?
It was just like: I was walkin down the street in brand new hat and I saw a cat! How about that?

Now it's like: I @$# THE @#/&/,8# UP THE @! /$#! - Cheese567

The answer for this is rock/rap where rock bands rap. - AnonymousChick

Why are so many rappers mumble rappers.Why can't they make good music like rappers in the 90's and 2000's.At least we still have Kendrick Lamar,DMX and Wiz Khalifa.Also there are actually many good pop artists like Twenty One Pilots,Imagine Dragons,The Script and lot's of others but there are still more bad pop artists though.-LitSavage

8 Nicki Minaj Stops Singing About Butts

Nicki minaj should make more songs like save me and grand piano which have meaning unlike that music she mostly makes.

9 Miley Cyrus Turns Back to Her Old Ways

I miss the old Miley! - RiverClanRocks

Miley, Its not to late hurry and change back to your old self before u become a compete train wreck like amanda bynes - LJJ207

I agree, she should come back to sweet Miley we used to know - Fandom_Lover

I don't like her old/new music
but I have to say one thing:"PLEASE,BE NORMAL AGAIN! " - CannibalCorpse

10 All the members from One Direction leave

I heard they're gonna break up in 2016. YES! One Direction sucks I'm glad they're done making terrible music

The Contenders

11 Franz Ferdinand Makes Another Album.

Didn't he get assassinated in 1914? - SirSkeletorThe3rd

I'm talking about the band. For those of you who don't know, Franz Ferdinand is a Scottish indie band formed in 2002. - ThePwoperMuser101

12 Ke$ha Retires

I hate Kesha. I'm not a fan of Taylor Swift and Sam Smith, but at least they don't have songs that spread horrible messages. All Kesha talks about is partying, drugs and sex.

I would be so happy if this happens. Please don't thumb down my comment.

I wouldn't be surprised since nobody likes Kesha anymore.

I would be so happy if this happens.

13 Lil Wayne Retires

He said he was going to retire 3 years ago, can he please retire for real this time. PLEASE!

Well, he claims that he'll retire by the age of 35. - Mumbizz01

14 One Direction and Their Fans Go Away

One Direction said they're going to split up for a while and then come back, a few years ago NSYNC said the same thing, but NSYNC never came back. Hopefully it will be the same with One Direction. Please can't they just go away

15 Rock And Roll Comes Back

Everybody on this list talking' 'bout pop stars to retire but instead they should start supporting Rock and Roll because when this will come back everything's gonna fade away. Best way to improve today's music industry is to support emerging Rock and roll bands and stop listening and watching videos of today's artists on YouTube. Let's get another Led Zeppelin or Nirvana or Beatles back in the industry. May God bless Rock and Roll. - Neeoo

Yeah this needs to happen so people can finally respect all music old and new

This. Needs. To. Happen. Right. Now.

If this happens, I can appreciate mainstream music again. - LostDream258

16 Owl City Becomes Popular

Adam is the best artist ever! - Juliajay

17 Iggy Azalea Dies/Retires

If she stops making music the music industry will be saved

Either way I think this will improve the music industry

You can'r deny the positive effects of this.

Ok,I would be so happy if she retired, but die? No, that's going way to far

18 Silento never makes a song again

Watch Me is probably the worst song I've ever heard, HE SHOULD NEVER MAKE ANOTHER SONG EVER!


His "songs" are idiotic bullcrap.

19 Starset Becomes More Popular
20 Everyone Starts Listening to Metal

Rock and electronic too. - RiverClanRocks

Grunge killed hair metal. And now there's Justin Bieber...

That would be awesome if music with balls became mainstream.

I doubt this will happen. It's impossible. - Mumbizz01

21 Electronic/Dance music gets popular
22 Soulja Boy stops trying to be relevant

He's still making garbage?!

Yeah, Why the hell is he still doing it? He needs to stop trying 2 be relevant lol - LJJ207

I'm dead serious, he's still making music

23 Taylor Swift stops singing about her exes and boyfriends

If you a wrote a song about something else I might actually listen to it

Yes. I completely agree. She should go back to country too. - Fandom_Lover

Her song "Mean" is about a teacher.

Dumb ass slut can never get married

24 Ariana Grande Retires

She has to retire soon!

25 Omi never makes a song again

I hate Cheerleader with a passion I hope he quits making music forever

26 The good, amazing old songs from 2007-2011 get popular again

2005 was awesome too, I'm currently listening to the Killers. PLAY MORE Coldplay! - Merilille

2006 was literally THE YEAR for most rock music. - AnonymousChick

27 Alternative takes over

Back to the 90s? Why not?

28 Linkin Park Releases an Album

They will.

29 All the worst singers in the world combined die and Michael Jackson comes back to life


Ah crap! Well kids, time to move out of Neverland Ranch - SirSkeletorThe3rd

30 Kesha Returns With Awesome Music

I wish kesha can come back, she is the best. She doesn't make real music, though her music makes me happy and is fun to listen to. I listen to her music for fun not for the quality of talent. Boring music like Taylor Swift music should go away and bring more fun music.

If she ends up making a comeback. I hope she succeeds and get a #1 hit song again.

Maybe it' a random Kesha fan who keeps thumbing up the positive comments about her. Seriously. Nobody likes Kesha so who would vote for her?

Kesha sucks and should retire

31 Taylor Swift Retires

I would throw a party and be so happy if this happened.

This would be a dream, because I can't stand her.

32 Fetty Wap Retires

What do you people like about this guy? He's a talentless hack, hopefully he'll be gone by next year

He sounds like he is crying, who would listen to that?

Who is this?


33 Kesha Returns and Iggy Azalea Retires

Please can Kesha return so we won't have to listen to Iggy Azalea. Kesha is much more talented than Iggy

Kesha is cool and smart and Iggy is a fake poser

Considering the state of music in 2015, I do want Kesha back and Iggy gone

Kesha can return and Iggy can be gone forever. That's how it should be

34 Justin Bieber Dies
35 Music With Guts Gets Played More Often
36 More Bands Form

I want more new and awesome bands! I think Halestorm and Amaranthe are the newest of my favorite bands!

More good bands

37 Eminem Makes Real Hardcore Rap In A Slim Shady Way Again!

I think Eminem should make another album in 2016 because his last album was 2013 ( Marshall Mathers LP2 ) he's made 9 songs that were in ShadyXV and Southpaw. So he should put those songs together in his next album

38 Country becomes more popular

Would have a better chance of becoming more popular if it didn't all sound alike...

What? All they sing about is tractors and hot girls in cowboy boots. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

39 Kesha and Gwen Stefani Collaborate

Sorry I put this two times on the list. I didn't saw it on the list the first time, so I put it again.

40 Ghost Gets More Popular
41 Tove Lo Retires

I feel like there's too much pop hate on this website. Sure, I don't like pop, but you have to admit the hate it gets on here is way out of proportion. Knowing this website, this item was probably added when "Habits" came out. If it was added then, it's a little hard to judge an artist's talent after only one hit single. - Turkeyasylum

Her song Habits was ok, but Talking Body is pure garbage - LJJ207

42 Marilyn Manson Makes a Comeback
43 Demi Lovato Retires

Good Lord her songs are annoying

44 Cher Lloyd Retires

Please go away

45 Britney Spears and Madonna stop trying to stay relevant

Neither of you are young or sexually appealing anymore, stop trying to act like teenagers.

46 Lorde Makes More Songs
47 Metal Music Ends

It won't. No genre ends, even pop.

48 Lady Gaga Makes More Music
49 Lady Gaga Retires

I don't think she is bad at all. She has overrated songs, but she has gotten better after a while, even if she hasn't released anything good or bad recently.

Also, she is not a Cyndi Lauper or Dale Bozzio knockoff. They just shared something in common with her; Eccentric fashion. - Swellow

I think GaGa is phenomenal.

50 Pop becomes less mainstream.
