Top Ten Worst Albums by Good Artists

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Van Halen - Diver Down

Anything after Fair Warning is just awful.

82 The Clash - Cut the Crap

Joe Strummer is spinning in his grave...

83 Mac Miller - Watching Movies With the Sound Off
84 Yes - 90125

Not bad, just a bit overrated. - IronSabbathPriest

86 Inxs - Switch
87 Abnormally Attracted to Sin - Tori Amos

I love Tori Amos, but this album is terrible.

88 Encore - Eminem

What the hell happened here? The Eminem Show was a classic, but Eminem followed it up with one of the worst rap albums of the past decade. Never before have I seen an artist just crash and burn this fast.

I disagree. It at least had a few good songs. (Mosh, Mockingbird, We As Americans, Like Toy Soldiers, Yellow Brick Road, and I like Just Lose It and Rain Man.) Was it worse than it's predecessors? Yes. Was it the worst Eminem album? No. - cachu

The only Eminem album I don't like

I think Encore gets too much hate. It's Shady, guys FACK ain't in this album - AlphaQ

Do not see the back cover, OK?!

89 Iron Maiden - Virtual XI
90 Coldplay - A Head Full of Dreams

At first I was a bit excited for this album, but the red flags immediately started flying when I saw the cover. I then did my research and found out it was produced by the same people who produced most of Rihanna's and Katy Perry's albums. I still wanted to keep an open mind, so I listened to Adventure of a Lifetime and I was done. Coldplay had officially sold out.

At least Ghost Stories was something different, not just a copy of an album that they've done before.

91 Having Fun with Elvis on Stage - Elvis Presley

It doesn't even have any music! It's just a bunch of talking! And by the way, "Elvis' Greatest" (Yes, that's the actual title) should be on this list, too.

This will go down in history as one of the worst albums of all time.

92 Undisputed Attitude - Slayer

This album in my opinion is Ok but its just forgettable - christangrant

93 Mobb Deep - Blood Money

Mobb Deep is one of my favorite rap groups,prodigy is one of the greatest storytellers in hip-hop,and havoc is one of the great producers.But this was truely as low as you can get.The stink of a bad g-unit album is all over this.The lyrics are horrible,the production sounds like something off a Tony Yayo album,and 50 Cent makes like 6 guest apperances.

94 Avenged Sevenfold - Waking the Fallen

This has to be one of my favourite Sevenfold albums. I don't know why it's here. - Mumbizz01

95 Judas Priest - Painkiller

Compared to demolition and many of their albums this one was great

I'll buy whatever you're smoking.

Judas priest are metal gods I know but this album sucks - nikhilpratapsingh

96 Green Day - Nimrod


Tré is the worst album I just find this a ton and kinda confusing

97 Nickelback - Dark Horse

Nickelback was amazing before they completely sold out with Dark Horse in 2008. Before Dark Horse, most of their songs were actually meaningful and covered topics like relationships and old memories (e.G. "How You Remind Me" and "Photograph"). Since Dark Horse, pretty much all they sing about now is sex, strippers, drugs, parties...

The album that represented their downfall. People didn't massively hate them until this one. Burn it to the Ground was the only good song on it.

An album that, unfortunately, makes pre-Dark Horse Nickelback sound good.

This wasn't that good nowadays they talk about what pop stars talk about

98 Flo Rida - Only One Flo (Part 1)

Yes, but your missing something...Flo Rida isn't even a good artist.

99 Lady Gaga - Born This Way

Some songs are ok... But The Fame was way better.

Last ones was better, it's TRUE but by the way is perfect.

100 Evanescence - Evanescence

Again, the album is good. (In my opinion) - Mumbizz01
