Top 10 Most Unpopular Opinions in Rock Music


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

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

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

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

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

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

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. - Lanturnizer6

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 A Thousand Suns by Linkin Park Was a Good Album

I thought it was a good album. - RadioHead03

Thousand Suns is awesome! - Lanturnizer6

7 Nu Metal is a Good Genre

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

8 Pink Floyd is Better Than The Beatles

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

They most definitely are

They are

9 The Great Southern Trendkill is Better Than Far Beyond Driven

Agreed - TheDarkOne_221b

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

10 Disturbed is Better Than Avenged Sevenfold

Both are meh to be honest - DarkBoi-X

I agree

I agree. - Userguy44

I never listened to either of them - PhoenixAura81

I would recommend songs like Stricken, Asylum, Warrior, Down With The Sickness etc. These are by Disturbed by the way - Userguy44

The Newcomers

? Bass Isn't Always Necessary
? It's Rarely Worth Listening to Every Song of the Band

The Contenders

11 U2 is a Bad Band

They're good in my opinion. - Misfire

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

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

They seem pretty boring to me - Ananya

12 Volume 8: The Threat is Real by Anthrax Was a Good Album
13 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

14 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

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 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

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

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 - Lanturnizer6

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

In the End is a great song. - PhoenixAura81

20 Linkin Park is not a good band
21 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

22 The Beatles are extremely overrated.

Again, they are overrated. - DarkBoi-X

They are overrated. - RadioHead03

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

I think it's true. - Metal_Treasure

23 Nirvana is a decent band, but very overrated

This is entirely true. - Userguy44

24 AC/DC Has No Bad Albums

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

25 Glam Metal is a Good Genre

Terrible genre - DarkBoi-X

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

26 All the Right Reasons by Nickelback is a Good Album
27 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

28 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

29 Smells Like Teen Spirit is Not a Good Song

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

30 The X Factor and Virtual XI are two of Iron Maiden's best albums
31 Jugulator and Demolition are two of Judas Priest's best albums
32 It Isn't Really Important to Classify Everything Into Genres

34 I hate Black Sabbath

But Paranoid is a good song. - DarkBoi-X

37 Limp Bizkit are a Decent Band
38 Stairway to Heaven Isn't All that Overrated
39 Emo Music is Good for What It Is
40 Ram It Down is Better Than Defenders of the Faith by Judas Priest
41 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

42 Marilyn Manson actually has talent

He does. - DarkBoi-X

43 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

44 Feed the Machine is Nickelback's best album
45 Feel Invincible by Skillet is not a good song
46 Whispers in the Dark by Skillet is not a good song

I like that song a lot. - PhoenixAura81

47 Black Veil Brides is a good band
48 Asking Alexandria is Cool

No. Awful band. Almost as bad as BVB. - DarkBoi-X

This is an even more unpopular opinion than liking BVB - yungstirjoey666

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

That would be Slayer - DarkBoi-X

50 Pantera's Glam Years Were Better Than Their Thrash/Groove Years
