41 Panic at the Disco

They are their own genre. They have so many different styles, and I love every one of them! Everything they do is a masterpiece and there's no denying that.

They are weird, but very sexy. Just watch their music video for"But It's Better If You Do". That's too sexy to handle.

They are weird in a good way. Really good way.

42 Meshuggah Meshuggah Meshuggah is a Swedish progressive metal band from Umeå, formed in 1987. They are credited with crafting the Djent subgenre. Meshuggah's line-up consists of founding members vocalist Jens Kidman and lead guitarist Fredrik Thordendal, drummer Tomas Haake, who joined in 1990, rhythm guitarist Mårten ...read more.

Some of the most creative metal music you will hear. - scaryness

This band has a very weird and unconventional mechanical sound to them. No other metal band sounds like them, though they also pioneered a playing style known as "Djent"

43 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 .

They're weird because they're horrible

I died reading this comment. Whoever you are, know that you made my day (or morning, as it's 2:01 AM as I'm typing this). - QueenOfUnsociable123

The worst band ever...

They're not weird, they just suck - JCHOW

More like the least weirdest band ever. Not unique at all.

I love Ghost. They're not weird at all. - Ku

Defiantly different. But they don't sound bad at all

45 The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground was an American rock band, active between 1964 and 1973, formed in New York City.
46 The Cure The Cure The Cure are an English rock band formed in Crawley, West Sussex, in 1976. The band has experienced several line-up changes, with vocalist, guitarist and principal songwriter Robert Smith being the only constant member.
47 Van Der Graaf Generator

So weird they make Jethro Tull and early Genesis sound positively mainstream. Unusual in that they had no guitars in most of their line-ups, but they did have wailing saxophones. Peter Hamill's vocals are interesting to put it mildly. I am surprised that Comus aren't on this list!

Definitely one of the weirdest-sounding 70s bands, with heavy saxophone and growling organ (! ) instead of lead guitar. Plus Peter Hamill's crazy vocals. They make early Genesis sound positively mainstream!

48 Slipknot Slipknot Slipknot is a Heavy Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band released their first album in 1999 and was well received by critics and fans. The group gained success after the release of their second studio album, "Iowa". ...read more.

Just because you think a band sucks doesn't mean the band is weird.

Honestly I love this band

I'm a metal fan but screaming n growling doesn't make a song metal. This band is so overrated as heavy metal pioneers but I can listened to only three of their songs.

The only weird thing about them is the mask, and a couple other really good bands have mask on. other than the mask this band is amazing

53 The Flaming Lips The Flaming Lips
54 That Handsome Devil

So strange and unique, but so addicting. Godforbid's lyrics and vocals in addition with the bizarre instrumentals make this a highly enjoyable music adventure.

Their music is an acquired taste.

I mean...it's in the name

60 Gorgorgoth

They're named after the dead plateau of evil and darkness in the land of mordor in the lord of the rings.

An actual satanic band. Even the frontman himself is a satanist.
