Top Ten Worst Albums by Good Artists

The Contenders: Page 2

21 The Rolling Stones - Dirty Work

I'm surprised that this isn't in the top 20s. This album is just a bad album by a Great Band. But at least they made better albums after this. - Mumbizz01

22 Nas - Nastradamus

The only one on the top 10 I can relate to. Nas is one of my favourite rappers but this was terrible, not really his fault though considering I Am... Was meant to be a double album but got bootlegged so he released this straight after I Am... And was rushed. But as good as Nas is, it is fair to say this is his worst

Nas is definitely one of my favorites but this is garbage. Nas critisized jay-z for how commerical he went on ether which is only a album removed from Nastradomus? This was a sellout atempt and a bad one at that. - Chris-1

Nas just might be my favorite rapper but theres no denying its a terrible album.Simpley should have never been made.

While it did fill a gap between illmatic and stillmatic this albumis the most disappointing crap by the 4th (? ) best rapper ever. (Should have been called "Fillmatic"

23 Queen - Hot Space

Queen are one of my favourite bands and every song is special in it's own right. Well, except Hot Space. The only good song from the entire album is Under Pressure, and even that song is a little overrated.

Even though this album is bad, we all should be glad it exists. Since it influenced Michael Jackson's Thriller which went on to sell 50 million copies. - Mumbizz01

Just Not Queen but has some classics

It's just bad

24 Megadeth - Super Collider

Another great Megadeth album. Gets too much hate. At least it is better than, for example, Risk. - IronSabbathPriest

I don't know, this album sucks in my opinion. But I agree with you on it not being nearly as bad as Risk, which is dance metal - Tylerlangford1234

Great album! There's no such thing as bad Megadeth. - Songsta41

This should be higher than this...
We what thrash metal

Not that bad. - Lucretia

25 The Path of Totality - Korn
26 Linkin Park - A Thousand Suns

I don't know why everybody hates this album. It's really not that bad, in fact, it's great if you come to think about it! Linkin park said they would change, and by heck they sure did. This album proved their true musicianship. Now don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVED hybrid theory and meteora, but this truly proved what they are capable of. This album features one of linkin park's only guitar solos, the catalyst which features some of the best drumming rob has ever done, and iridescent which features outstanding vocals and instruments. Though most people don't like this style of music, nobody can decline lp's musicianship. And according to when they come for me, "y'all outta stop talking, start trying to catch up, motherf... Meaning that you guys can't rat on them until you've reached the success they have. Thanks for reading, that is, of this paragraph that took me 10 minutes to type actually made it to the list, otherwise I just wasted some of my life. Speaking of which, why the ...more

Not a bad album. - Alpha101

I don't know why this is this high. This is there best album since meteora and has some really good tracks with an interesting unique style. If anything minutes to midnight should be here in its place

Their masterpiece - mtndewlord

27 Forbidden - Black Sabbath

Just so awful and forgetable - christangrant

28 Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP

Hey this album should not be on here - nothingbutcool

I love Eminem. And this is one of his 3 classic albums. Relapse, although not a classic, shouldn't be on here either. They shall be replaced by recovery and encore!

Number one obviously! There's no competition here folks, just a lyrical genius at work...

What it's great - ChatonNoir

29 Red Hot Chili Peppers - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Hey this was just their first album and they didn't have as much experience recording songs at the time. They were mainly comedic performers at the time.

30 Lil Wayne - Tha Carter III

Lil Wayne wasn't even good to begin with!

I honestly think he's better than Nicki Minaj. Nicki Minaj makes Wayne sound like as though he were the next 2Pac.


Okay, Lil' Wayne is NOT a good artist, but the songs on this album suck, especially that horrible "A Milli" song.

This is just a terrible album from a terrible artist.

31 Lil Wyte - No Sick Days
32 Force of Habit - Exodus
33 Iron Maiden - No Prayer for the Dying

This album gets so much undeserved hate. When I came upon it, I never even knew it existed because it is nowhere to be found on Iron Maiden's best whatever lists, and I found it a very pleasant surprise. Iron Maiden has never made a bad album or even written a bad song for that matter. Songs like Mother Russia, No Prayer, Assassin, Fates Warning, Bring Your Daughter, Tailgunner, Holy Smoke, Public Enema Number One, Run Silent, and Hooks in You are all amazing songs. - Songsta41

34 Linkin Park - Living Things

Not a good artist though - Lucretia

35 Freaky Styley - Red Hot Chili Peppers
36 Nicole Scherzinger - Killer Love
37 The Beatles - Yellow Submarine

This one's odd, considering Yellow Submarine isn't an album. Yellow Submarine was on Revolver! And then there was the animated movie called "Yellow Submarine", and the soundtrack (Made up of Beatles songs) was just a compilation of great Beatles songs!

Who are the Philistines voting for this!?

Apparently only I liked this album - jack2244

The Beatles and this song is so overrated

38 Sandra - Art of Love

not the worst but very disappointing after The Wheel Of Time - Alexandr

39 Dream Theater - Falling Into Infinity

What the hell! This album is awesome! Trial Of Tears, New Millennium, Peruvian Skies, Lines In The Sand and Hollow years are all awesome songs! At least this album is better than, for example, Metallica's black album. - IronSabbathPriest

Whoever put this is out of their mind what

40 Megadeth - Risk

This album has to be the worst in the Big 4 albums. Boring, a terrible attempt at Alt-Rock. And they thought that "Crush' Em" Would become the next We Will Rock You. - Mumbizz01
