The Top Ten

1 St. Anger by Metallica Was a Good Album

I totally called that. Before I saw this list I predicted that this will be number 1. And I was right! - PhoenixAura81

2 Nickelback is a Good Band

Yep, since most people hate this band with a burning passion. - Userguy44

3 Creed is a Good Band
4 Coldplay is a Bad Band

Their only good songs in my opinion are Viva la Vida and Sail. - PhoenixAura81

This isn’t unpopular anymore. - Userguy44

5 Twenty One Pilots is a Bad Band

They're not rock! - Userguy44

I think they're good.-DarkBoi-X

I agree with this, but they’re not rock. - 3DG20

I agree with this. I've heard a few of their songs before and have absolutely no desire to ever listen to them again. - Element119

6 Pink Floyd is Better Than The Beatles

I like The Beatles, but I like Pink Floyd more. - Userguy44

They most definitely are

They are

7 A Thousand Suns by Linkin Park Was a Good Album
8 The Great Southern Trendkill is Better Than Far Beyond Driven

FBD is better than TGST, end of story. Both are good albums though - RustyNail

9 Nu Metal is a Good Genre

It's pretty good, but I'm not a big fan of it. - Userguy44

10 Volume 8: The Threat is Real by Anthrax Was a Good Album

The Contenders

11 Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd isn't good

Lol people actually said this? - Userguy44

12 U2 is a Bad Band

They're good in my opinion. - Misfire

They're not my favourite at all, but there are worse bands than them. - Userguy44

They seem pretty boring to me - Ananya

I agree with this. I don't like them at all honestly. - Element119

13 Women on bass are not very hot

Uh, NO ONE IS HOT! - PhoenixAura81

But it’s whether they’re good at it that matters, not if they’re “hot”. - 3DG20

Yep. If a woman can play the bass really well and I needed a good bassist for a band, I wouldn't be concerned about her looks. - Gg2000

14 Bohemian Rhapsody is a Terrible Song.

Not in my opinion. I can never see myself saying that. - Misfire

15 Smells Like Teen Spirit is a better Nirvana song than Come as you are

These two are not even my favourites on Nevermind. In Bloom is better than both. - Userguy44

16 Disturbed is Better Than Avenged Sevenfold

I agree. - Userguy44

I never listened to either of them - PhoenixAura81

17 Diabolus in Musica by Slayer was a Good Album
18 Disturbed is the Best Nu Metal Band
19 Linkin Park is not a good band
20 Black Veil Brides isn't that bad

Many people prefer their older stuff more, but I thought that Knives and Pens was a bit too emo. I'm more for their other songs like Heart on Fire and Wake Up - yungstirjoey666

In the End is a great song. - PhoenixAura81

21 The Beatles are extremely overrated.

They really are. I also don't like them. - PhoenixAura81

I think it's true. - Metal_Treasure

This is true. - Userguy44

There were much better bands around, even in those days. and it wasn't even so innovative - JustOneUser

22 All the Right Reasons by Nickelback is a Good Album
23 AC/DC Has No Bad Albums
24 Glam Metal is a Good Genre

It is a pretty good genre, I don't understand why so many people hate it so much. - Element119

It's hated because it's not heavy enough if it was called glam rock I'm pretty sure most people wouldn't hate it. - XxembermasterxX

25 We Built this City is one of the best rock songs ever

I love that song but I wouldn't classify it as one of the best rock songs ever. - galaxyfox

I actually agree with most of the items above this to some extent or another, but THIS, I don't think there's more than 1k people on the planet who hold this opinion

26 Led Zeppelin were a good band. But they were and are monumentally overrated

I think they are overrated and I don't like them. - PhoenixAura81

Yes. - Misfire

Yes they are. - Userguy44

27 No Fixed Address by Nickelback is a good album
28 Nirvana is a decent band, but very overrated

This is entirely true. - Userguy44

29 Slipknot is Metal

I think Slipknot is a metal band. - Userguy44

Nu metal counts - yungstirjoey666

30 Ram It Down is Better Than Defenders of the Faith by Judas Priest
31 Linkin Park is a Good Band

This is an unpopular opinion? - Misfire

It was, because there used to be a time lots of people hated Linkin Park. - Userguy44

Agreed. - Userguy44

What, Linkin Park is a good band! - PhoenixAura81

I completely agree with this. I love Chester’s voice and Mike’s rapping blends in so well with the music. However, I don’t agree that it’s an unpopular opinion as they’re one of the biggest bands of the 2000s. - 3DG20

32 Marilyn Manson actually has talent
33 Metallica's Black Album is good

People say this album is overrated, but only because of Enter Sandman and Nothing Else Matters. There are more good songs on the album like Wherever I May Roam, Of Wolf And Man, Sad But True, The Unforgiven and My Friend Of Misery. - Userguy44

This album got hated because it wasn't a thrash album and Metallica were called sellouts. Not because the album itself is bad. It has great songs on it. - Metal_Treasure

I love this album. - PhoenixAura81

34 Feed the Machine is Nickelback's best album
35 Feel Invincible by Skillet is not a good song
36 Whispers in the Dark by Skillet is not a good song

I like that song a lot. - PhoenixAura81

37 Black Veil Brides is a good band
38 I hate Black Sabbath
