Top 10 Whiniest Bands

Bands that complain about issues that usually a teenager would complain about and they're often immature because of it. These bands have immature lyrics and generally are hard to take seriously. I'm excluding edgy bands such as: Linkin Park from this list because they're not whiny and in general have more to their discography than teenage issues.

The Top Ten

1 Simple Plan Simple Plan Simple Plan is a French-Canadian rock band from Montreal, Quebec. The band has released five studio albums.

Both simple plan and blink 182 are the whiniest rock bands ever in existence. The vocals, the song title names, the main singer's voice, their songs, pretty much everything about this band is irritating whiney and annoying - UltraLunalaX

I can actually laugh at their whiny songs. - Soulstealer

Their third (self-titled) album is a sort of subversion. It does feature some mature tracks and shows signs of the band making mature lyrics and music. And in all honesty, they should have kept to that direction. The fourth album as a small selection of songs that are passable, but the rest is disposable. Taking One For The Team is absolute garbage and a pathetic display of regression for a band whose members are nearing the age of 40. - CrimsonShark

Most of their songs have whiny themes, and you can even tell from the title that it will be a whiny song (think In a Perfect World, God Must Hate Me, or How Could this Happen to Me). - allamassal

2 Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides is an American rock band currently consisting of Andy Biersack (vocals), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (guitar), Christian Coma (drums) and Ashley Purdy (bass), that formed in 2006 in Ohio. more.

Whiny and painful to sit through.

Whiny as can be - AliciaMae

Whiniest band ever.Their music just consists of generic riffs found in almost all Screamo/Post Hardcore bands and their vocalist Andy Biersack is a whiny singer who is ugly and whines all the time.-DarkBoi-X

3 Falling in Reverse Falling in Reverse Falling in Reverse is an American post hardcore band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2008, signed to Epitaph Records.

One of the most whiny and unlikable bands in existence. Ronnie Radke's vocals make me want to bash my head against my keyboard repeatedly!

In one song they bragged about cheating on their girlfriend

4 Asking Alexandria Asking Alexandria Asking Alexandria are an English metalcore band from York, North Yorkshire formed initially in 2008 by lead guitarist Ben Bruce along with former lead singer Danny Worsnop, bassist Joe Lancaster, keyboardist and synth player Ryan Binns, and current members drummer James Cassells and rhythm guitarist more.

Like Christangrant said they're basically a hardcore One Direction which is as bad as it sounds.

They have a few good songs like "A Prophecy" and "I won't give in" but other than that they suck and I agree they're whiny.-DarkBoi-X

5 Pierce The Veil Pierce The Veil Pierce the Veil is an American post-hardcore band from San Diego, California. Formed in 2006, the band was founded by brothers Vic and Mike Fuentes after the disbandment of the group Before Today, which was formed out of the San Diego punk rock scene.

They're not just whiny they're irritating as hell.

6 Bring Me the Horizon Bring Me the Horizon Bring Me the Horizon is a British rock band from Sheffield, Yorkshire. Formed in 2004, the group currently consists of vocalist Oliver Sykes, guitarist Lee Malia, bassist Matt Kean, drummer Matt Nicholls, and keyboardist Jordan Fish. They are signed to RCA Records globally and Columbia Records exclusively more.
7 Blood on the Dance Floor Blood on the Dance Floor Blood on the Dance Floor is an American scene duo currently consisting of Dahvie Vanity and Fallon Vendetta that formed in 2006. Former members include Jayy von Monroe (2009-2016) and Garrett Ecstasy (2009). All of them provided vocals to the project. more.

More downright annoying than whiny but either way they suck elephant crap.Also Dahvie is ugly and looks like the scene/emo version of Harley Quinn.-DarkBoi-X

8 Blink-182 Blink-182 Blink-182 are a Pop Punk band formed in 1992. Original lineup were Mark Hoppus (Bass Guitar, Vocals) more.

The perfect example of extremely whiney and immature pop punk garbage. Should be in the top 5 in my opinion. - UltraLunalaX

9 Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping with Sirens is an American Rock band from Orlando Florida. The band formed in 2009. SWS lead singer is Kellin Quinn

Painfully whiny in the worst aspects.

10 Bullet for my Valentine Bullet for my Valentine Bullet for My Valentine are a Welsh metalcore/emo band from Bridgend, formed in 1998. The band is composed of Matthew Tuck (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Michael Paget (lead guitar, backing vocals), Michael Thomas (drums) and Jamie Mathias (bass guitar). Former members include Nick Crandle and Jason more.

Their earlier material (Even if it was whiny) was at least good for Metalcore standards. Scream Aim Fire is their best album, mostly because Bullet For My Valentine tries to change its sound to a more Rock/Metal approach, and that the sound of that album is actually more aggressive and seriously approachable. Fever is also somewhat good in its own right, as is The Poison. But other than that Bullet For My Valentine isn't exactly very good, just passable at most... - CrimsonShark

Nah.B4MV is not whiny to me.In my opinion they are the best Metalcore bands and I have listened to lot's of Metalcore bands ranging from good ones like As I Lay Dying to whiny Emo Metalcore/Emocore bands like Asking Alexandria who have only 2 good songs.-DarkBoi-X

The Newcomers

11 Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American pop rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

My Chemical Romance is also whiny but at least Gerard Way sounds a lot more tolerable than Patrick Stump's painfully whiny vocals and lyrics.

Screw this band. - Ninjaturtlesforpresident

12 Escape the Fate Escape the Fate

Whiny and jesus Christ are their terrible vocals are a assault to my eardrums.

13 Bowling for Soup Bowling for Soup Bowling for Soup is an American rock band originally formed in Wichita Falls, Texas, in 1994. The band consists of Jaret Reddick, Chris Burney, Erik Chandler, and Gary Wiseman.

Lots of Pop Punk bands with the exceptions of Green Day, The All American Rejects, Sum 41, The Offspring and Blink 182 come off as whiny. This band sure as hell is no exception.

This band sucks. - JCHOW

That name - Skullkid755

The lead singer, Tyler Joseph, and the drummer, Josh Dun. At the 2016 American Music Awards, they won two AMAs for Favorite Pop/Rock Artist, and Favorite Alternative Artist. Twenty One more.

Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). more.

Although I like this band, I respect your opinion, some songs on the stage album sound kind of whiny a little bit

Although I'm not really a fan, I can say that A7X has made some mature and experimental tracks throughout its career. Also, M. Shadows has a good voice. Yeah, their Metalcore days were shoddy and whiny, but the band has grown for the better, so they've averted an embarrassing status. - CrimsonShark

M. Shadow does have a very well whiny voice...

22 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.

Have you heard of Blink 182? Just curious. - BlueTelegraph

Definitely. Whenever BJA tries to sing he sounds like he is either board or upset.

I don't think Green Day is whiny at all...

Every song is pointing the finger at someone else for unhappiness. It's good music, but the lyrical trends get boring and political.
