Worst Albums of 2018


The Top Ten

1 Day69 - 6ix9ine Day69 - 6ix9ine

This album made me feel something I never expected: Bored out of my mind. This wannabe tough-guy persona, the repetitive, endless attempts at being offensive for the sake of being offensive, and the complete lack of any sort of humor makes this 12 track album feel twice as long.

So basically, this album is the musical equivalent of rustlers on here. - Zach808

This isn't an album. It's an April Fool's joke gone wrong. - Swellow

Don't expect much from someone named 6ix9ine.

Sounds like Joe Pesci made a rap album after being BB Gunned in the ballsack (watch Home Alone and you know what I’m talking about)

2 Total Xanarchy - Lil Xan

Not a surprise this is on here. Most rappers that have lil in their stage name are trash. Except maybe Lil Uzi Vert. - CharismaticKat

I listened to this album last night. It was just as bad if not worse than I imagined it would be. - Smashball23

Lil xan sucks. - DarkBoi-X

Worst album I’ve ever heard.

3 M A N I A - Fall Out Boy

Will FOB Stop Making Music already? - AlphaQ

To this day, this band has not recovered from being featured in the Ghostbusters 2016 soundtrack. - Zach808

What happened to FOB - iliekpiez

What do we want? POP-ROCK HITS! When do we want them? RIGHT NOW! We seriously don't need some EDM influence on the pop-rock genre. That sounds like garbage... - MissRWBY202

4 Amerikkkant - Ministry

Complete rubbish.

So bad even the cover is facepalming. - AlphaQ

5 Invasion of Privacy - Cardi B

Bodak yellow and Be careful is great. But the whole album? Literally a mess. Her voice annoying in many parts. She is just a new rapper which people overhyped in. Plus, she is so problematic and have no good manner. But I can understand because she was a stripper back then. I'd rather listen to nicki minaj than this.

You sexualized yourself in front of the camera. More like you are giving up privacy for some quick cash. - MChkflaguard_Yt

The most mediocre album of 2018. - jameshoward

This album is home to I Like It, which I thought was going to be my least favorite song of the year until Drake's In My Feelings came along. She Bad is also almost as bad, and although I haven't listened to the rest of the album, it's probably trash. - allamassal

6 ? - XXXTentacion

This should've been number 2 only behind the skittle rapist. Just because he's dead doesn't mean I have to like his music. The song where he guilt trips a girl by threatening suicide if she breaks up with him went to number one on the charts. Need I say more

3/10 sad piece of nothing - AlphaQ

The? means "is this even music? ". - MChkflaguard_Yt

7 Ye - Kanye West

Kanye West is trash - DaWyteNight

This is a masterpiece. What idiot put it on here. You people saying Kanye's trash probably listen to 6ix9ine and Lil Pump so shut up. - THICCBOI

This album is beautiful. The losers who say this album is trash are losers

Kanye is overrated

8 Culture II - Migos

What the hell is this album? I'll tell you what it is: it is a cash grab! Why else would they make 24 songs that mean absolutely nothing (other than maybe Culture National Anthem) and can be easily intertwined, all in the same style of music that made them popular? Not only that, this album is boring. The beats go absolutely nowhere, their idea of a hook is just repeating a phrase over and over again, and every song uses racial slurs or derogatory terms against women! There's two tracks I wouldn't mind listening to again (Culture National Anthem and Notice Me), but as a whole, this is one of the most boring, pandering, and unnecessary albums I have ever heard in my life! - AlexZedKawa

MotorSport and Walk It Talk It are just lazy, artless sound. Songs like those are why so many people dislike hip-hop. 1/10 - allamassal

A couple decent songs here, but oh man, do these guys not have the ability to keep an album this long from putting me to sleep. - Zach808

24 filler tracks, no lyrics, no substance, only repetitive adlibs and ear poisoning hooks. The only good songs were Narcos, Walk It Talk It, and Stir Fry. - jameshoward

9 Deathreats - Tom MacDonald

Try hard

10 Kamikaze - Eminem

He needs to stop trying so hard to stay relevant, he is so last generation - Izalien

Eminem is now the pioneer of "Whine rap". This album sucks. - Mumbizz01

Lol people are just mad that this was voted by fans to be the best album of the year. And it wasnt even close.

LMAO,mumble rap fans get out.This album is good - DarkBoi-X

The Contenders

11 Origins - Imagine Dragons

A few song are good, but it's a pretty mediocre album. - Userguy44

Trash - iliekpiez

Good album - DarkBoi-X

12 Weeaboo Paradise, Vol. 1 - Lil Meerkat

This had the Bohemian Rhapsody cover everyone is talking about. - ShrekTheGoat

This is just 24 tracks of Amateur soundcloud rap garbage. The rapping is just bad, the lyrics themselves are usually about nothing but Sonic, Fanfiction, Bodypillows, and Anime and just cringy. The Intro alone has him saying ''Make Ya Scream Meerkat'' over and over again. It's not even funny. The guest features on here are just as bad if not worse than our main performer. Like the atrocious autotune from Submarine Man on the song I'm Richer Than You. (A song which goes on for SEVEN MINUTES!) In fact, four or five of the guest features on here are just verses from other famous rappers like Sheck Wes, Riff Raff and 6ix9ine that Lil Meerkat just lazily edited into the beats. The beats here are poorly made like they were made in like two or three minutes. It also has a cover of Bohemian Rhapsody for some reason and it's awful. This feels like another one of those meme like novelty albums, only this one is not even funny. If you want good novelty rap, check out YouTubers Azerrz and Akeem ...more - Smashball23

13 Beerbongs & Bentleys - Post Malone
14 Binge - Machine Gun Kelly
15 Scorpion - Drake

This album would've been a letdown if it had had anything to live up to. I mean seriously, who really takes Drake seriously as a rapper in 2018? 2018 Drake is a pop star who raps for all I care. - DaWyteNight

Rappers, please stop bloating up your albums to 25+ tracks of mostly filler. I know you like streams, but listening to this all the way through is a huge chore. - Zach808

This album is home to the worst mainstream song of 2018, and is for some reason doing really well on the Billboard charts. - allamassal

16 Beloved Antichrist - Therion
17 I Love Friday - Ilovefriday
18 Dummy Boy - 6ix9ine

Even worse than Day69.

I don't know why all the damn critics trashed it. It wasn't even that bad in my opinion. I liked it to be honest, like it's much better than Cardi's or Drake's albums; those were trash but the critics LOVED them. I hate the music critics, they are all so fake. - CharismaticKat

Better than Day69 at the very least. - MChkflaguard_Yt

It's 6ix9ine, anything else to say? - AlphaQ

19 Camila - Camila Cabello

Never Be The Same is just mediocre, although Into It is slightly better. I haven't listened to the rest. - allamassal

Bad letdown. People thought Camila was going to be different but she just Taylor Swift 2 - THICCBOI

I can't wait for the day when everyone forgets about her. - CharismaticKat

20 Primal Heart - Kimbra
21 America - 30 Seconds to Mars
22 Ice! - Lil Flexer

Most cringe worthy album starting from the title to the lyrics to the beat and the rapper - THICCBOI

Terrible album - LilliamPumpernickel

23 Cry Pretty - Carrie Underwood

More pop schlock. Great.

24 Litmas - Jake Paul
25 Oil of Every Pearl's Un-Insides - Sophie
26 Rise to Glory - Loudness
27 Man of the Woods - Justin Timberlake


28 Nostockingz - Submarine Man

Awful album - LilliamPumpernickel

29 Pray for the Wicked - Panic! at the Disco

This album is so bad, it makes 6ix9ine sound good! Every song sounded like it was made by a 4 year old, the vocals and instrumentals are God awful, and all in all, the absolute worst album I've ever listened to! It's horrible, generic, rushed and damn abysmal!

Explain why though. You say certain elements are awful, but you never explain why they are awful. - purple8

This album is great, why does this site hate panic so much sjsjsks

30 Thunderbolt - Saxon
31 Catharsis - Machine Head
32 Sweetener - Ariana Grande

I guess to me, it's only bad because it's really disappointing. "No Tears Left to Cry" and "breathin'" are the two best songs on the album. Ariana really hasn't delivered on this album at all so not surprised she is heading straight back to the studio to work on her 5th album. - crowdiegal

No Tears Left to Cry and God Is a Woman are two songs I like, but The Light is Coming is one of the worst songs of 2018. - allamassal


I can't believe she made this trash..even it won grammy, like what is wrong with the world? They are so late like where were grammys when Dangerous Woman released? So yeah I guess I won't ever believe on grammys anymore (well..I did since 90s)

Ariana is a great great singer. I always loves her albums from YT to DW. But not when she released this. 1st reason is, she let pharell trashing on blazed,tlic,borderline. They are sounds so weird but not in a good way..just out of line. 2nd, Ariana should really be selective more on finishing album..especially about tracklist. I mean what blazed comes after raindrops? And also..tlic? sweetener? borderline? goodnight n go? 3rd, She really should throw away those songs I mentioned.

But I checked her new album Thank u, next...is really better than this.

33 Everything is Love - Beyoncé & Jay-Z

No, everything is not love. What an idiotic title, but what else can you expect from beyonce and jay-z? - DaWyteNight

34 Music for Cars - The 1975

Yo what this isn't a album

35 Unsung Prophets and Dead Messiahs - Orphaned Land
36 Lil Boat 2 - Lil Yachty

Teenage Emotions - Effort = This.

I miss the Lil Boat 1 days where Yachty often had GoodBurberryPerry produce his songs.

Lil Boat 1 was filled with corny lyrics but decent melodies.

Lil Boat 2 is just filled with lifeless 30 Roc-produced songs and weak rapping and you could just label it as any rapper of today.

Baby Daddy sounds like something XXXtentecion would sing, and Self Made is the only half decent song on the album.

37 Gemini - Macklemore


38 Pounding the Pavement - Anvil
39 You are Out - Lama Doodle
40 Skins - Xxxtentacion

No this one is good - DarkBoi-X

41 We Beefin’ - Wendy’s

Why the hell does this exist?

We have officially hit the bottom bois - cjWriter1997

Why/10 - AlphaQ

Humanity has officialy devovled. - MissRWBY202

42 Zoo - Russ

Boring album, try better next time - LightningStrike

What this is a good album! Who put it here? - DaWyteNight

Another L for russ

43 Tha Carter V - Lil Wayne

He's still relevant? - CharismaticKat

Terrible! - DaWyteNight

44 Lama Poof - Submarine Man
45 Astroworld - Travis Scott

Travis Scott sucks as a rapper - DaWyteNight

46 Joytime II - Marshmello
47 Coma Noir - The Atlas Moth
48 Father of Asahd - DJ Khaled

It's not out yet, but the first single "top off" is terrible and seeing as it's a DJ Khaled album I can already say without hearing it that it will be more mediocre trash. - DaWyteNight

DJ Khaled gonna come on this list and be saying "we gonna keep winning, we the best music". Well here is another one on the bad albums chart - THICCBOI

You can tell it's bad when DJ Khaled says his son produced it - THICCBOI

And it never came out... - DaWyteNight

49 Ta13oo - Denzel Curry

The first three or so songs were good, but then the album went downhill fast with generic trap bangers. I was expecting more from this album, but I guess denzel just isn't my kind of artist... - DaWyteNight

This album would've been disappointing if it had anything to live up to.

Another good album - DarkBoi-X


50 Ephorize - Cupcakke
