Top 10 Most Unpopular Opinions in Rock Music


The Top Ten

1 St. Anger by Metallica Was a Good Album

It is alright. - I80

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

Most of the people who say otherwise are just bandwagoning though. - Misfire

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

They're ok

3 Creed is a Good Band
4 Twenty One Pilots is a Bad Band

TOP isn't bad, but they aren't rock. - RoseWeasley

6/10 band. They do have some good stuff but they've made quite a few bad stuff too - DarkBoi-X

Aren't they like a a mix of Rock, Pop, Hip Hop, Emo and Indie. - DarkBoi-X

I don't like TOP, but it don't dislike them either. However, they're not rock.

5 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

6 Pink Floyd is Better Than The Beatles

High Hopes > Any Beatles song - BlueTelegraph

They are. - RiverVibeZ

They are. The Beatles were good but Pink Floyd is miles better. - DarkBoi-X

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

7 A Thousand Suns by Linkin Park Was a Good Album

I thought it was a good album. - RadioHead03

Thousand Suns is awesome!

8 Nu Metal is a Good Genre

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

9 The Great Southern Trendkill is Better Than Far Beyond Driven


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

10 Disturbed is Better Than Avenged Sevenfold

Both are average. - BlueTelegraph

Both are meh to be honest - DarkBoi-X

I never listened to either of them - PhoenixAura81

The Newcomers

? A Perfect Circle is better than Tool

The Contenders

11 U2 is a Bad Band

They're mediocre. - RiverVibeZ

They're boring as hell in my opinion. - BlueTelegraph

They're good in my opinion. - Misfire

I don’t really like them that much. - RadioHead03

12 Bohemian Rhapsody is a Terrible Song.

It's an overrated song for sure, but it's not bad. But Queen has better songs - ozzy_lost_his_mind

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

13 Volume 8: The Threat is Real by Anthrax Was a Good Album
14 Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd isn't good

It's kind of a boring album in my opinion

Lol people actually said this? - Userguy44

15 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

16 Linkin Park is not a good band

They're average. - RiverVibeZ

17 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

18 It Isn't Really Important to Classify Everything Into Genres
19 Korn is Better Than Slipknot

Simply because Slipknot is rubbish. Or garbage to put it lightly. Can't stand them at all to be honest. Corey Taylor is a alright singer though. - BlueTelegraph

20 Feel Invincible by Skillet is not a good song

It's laughably bad. - BlueTelegraph

It's a horrible and cringeworthy song. - RiverVibeZ

21 Diabolus in Musica by Slayer was a Good Album
22 Disturbed is the Best Nu Metal Band

Who the hell calls Disturbed Nu Metal? - Userguy44

23 The Beatles are extremely overrated.

True - BlueTelegraph

Again, they are overrated. - DarkBoi-X

They are overrated. - RadioHead03

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

24 Smells Like Teen Spirit is Not a Good Song

Even Kurt Cobain hated that song... says a lot doesn't it? - BlueTelegraph

Great song, but I think Heart-Shaped Box and Come As You Are are better. - jameshoward

Its overrated. - ozzy_lost_his_mind

Might not be an unpopular opinion on this site, but it’s more unpopular in public. Because everyone I know likes this song, and i’m just not a fan of it. - RadioHead03

25 Black Veil Brides isn't that bad

They are really awful... - BlueTelegraph

Well they are. - DarkBoi-X

I've never listened to any of their music, but they probably have their good and bad moments, just like any other band

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

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

I don't like them. - RiverVibeZ

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

Yes. - Misfire

Yes they are. - Userguy44

27 Nirvana is a decent band, but very overrated

This is entirely true. - Userguy44

28 AC/DC Has No Bad Albums

I agree, they are my second favorite band, behind the beatles

29 Glam Metal is a Good Genre

Awful genre. - BlueTelegraph

Terrible genre - DarkBoi-X

I like it. Skid Row, Motley Crue, and Guns N Roses (if they count as Glam Metal) are all great bands.

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

30 All the Right Reasons by Nickelback is a Good Album
31 We Built this City is one of the best rock songs ever

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

Lool I’m actually okay with this song (‘cause it was included in a movie I watched a million times as a kid), but even so, I wouldn’t say it’s the one of the best rock songs, or even, one of the best songs of all time. - Misfire

32 Slipknot is Metal

It is metal. Also how is this unpopular? - DarkBoi-X

I think Slipknot is a metal band. - Userguy44

I like nu metal, but I do see why most metalheads dismiss nu/core/glam as metal - yungstirjoey666

33 Anthrax is the Best Out of All the Big Four Bands of Thrash Metal

Metallica exists

Slayer > Anthrax - BlueTelegraph

Lol no. - RiverVibeZ

That would be Slayer - DarkBoi-X

34 The X Factor and Virtual XI are two of Iron Maiden's best albums
35 Jugulator and Demolition are two of Judas Priest's best albums
36 It's Rarely Worth Listening to Every Song of the Band

Yes too many people get called fake fans because they don't know every song in the Bands discography sure listen to more than just 5 songs or so but most bands have some material that just is not worth it. - Powell

Depends on the band, and the quality of their music. - BlueTelegraph

37 No Fixed Address by Nickelback is a good album
38 I hate Black Sabbath

But Paranoid is a good song. - DarkBoi-X


39 Green Day is horrible
40 Revolution 9 is a Good Song
41 Limp Bizkit are a Decent Band

Nah, they suck and make music for middle school bullies who drink monster energy and wear Tapout. - RiverVibeZ

Because they are. - I80

42 Stairway to Heaven Isn't All that Overrated
43 Emo Music is Good for What It Is

Disagree. - BlueTelegraph

44 Bass Isn't Always Necessary

Most bands would sound dull without bass though. Bass provides rhythm and low frequencies in rock music. - Userguy44

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

They are and how is this unpopular? - DarkBoi-X

This is an unpopular opinion? - Misfire

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

47 Marilyn Manson actually has talent

He is very talented but his style of music is an acquired taste - RiverVibeZ

He does. - DarkBoi-X

48 Metallica's Black Album is good

It is. And how is this unpopular exactly? - DarkBoi-X

I liked this album. - RadioHead03

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

49 Feed the Machine is Nickelback's best album
50 Whispers in the Dark by Skillet is not a good song

I like that song a lot. - PhoenixAura81
