Worst Albums of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Black Star - David Bowie

This album was a great album. It reflects on what Bowie has done for the world, and how much he has changed music. He had cancer while finishing the album, and continued writing and singing. There is no way in a million this album is anywhere close to worst albums. - naFrovivuS

HOW DID THIS GET SO HIGH? I don't like it a song much as others do but I'm really shocked to see it this high. I personally think this album is a BIT boring. But overall it's not that bad. 7/10 - AlphaQ

Why did this get so high? - Cartoonfan202

A David Bowie Hater/Troll Visitor who votes for this every day - christangrant

#1? R u kidding me? This album was released two days after bowie died. Talk about disrespect. Get that justin bieber album at #1 - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

2 My World 2.0 - Justin Bieber

This truly is the worst album of all time. This album was what brought about the downfall of music. Baby sucks!

Do you notice that the worst stuff comes from today's music

Do you notice that the cheesiest and most annoying songs comes from old music? - AlphaQ

Why is Justin Bieber at the top of every single list on here? I know how much people hate the guy, but THIS is ridiculous

LOL, I'm the one who posted this comment when I didn't have an account. - railfan99

This was just cheesy and dumb. Why is Black Star by David Bowie doing here in number one? Both should trade places. It's a big disgrace to David under his grave.

3 Epic - Blood on the Dance Floor

Don't let the name fool you, there is nothing "Epic" about this garbage. This album is the opposite of Epic, this should be number 1. - AnimeDrawer

More like Epic Fail! - AnimeDrawer

Worst album ever. - Elijah_Cook

Well really he doesn't hate them as people but u know what I mean. - Elijah_Cook

4 Kidz Bop

God almighty, the kidz bop cds are terrible. Its just a bunch of autotuned kids doing terrible covers of already bad or irrelevant songs. Why is A Thousand Suns on here, that's a great album! Probably a bunch of old LP fans complaining about how LP changes their style so they don't sound generic. Kidz Bop should be #1.

KidzBop will never be a good artist again. They are just kids who censor things. I know cursing isn't always great but sometimes the censoring can be annoying. Besides the kids are terrible and do a crap job - AlphaQ

What's the point of kidz bop? They useless besides Who cares about cursing

They change half of the words in their songs to be "kid-friendly." Like they would censor "stupid."

5 #newgoreorder - Borgore

PLEASE move this to Number 1. HORRIBLE album. Some of the absolute worst "music" I've ever heard. "Turn Around" may just be the worst song ever created. Also, the drops in "Syrup" and the title track are just...no. - DCfnaf

Stupid boner music. - AlphaQ

Yea this is still a nightmare. -iNFiNiTY/10 - DankGodX

This man is so gross. I cringe every time I listen to one of his songs. #Flexit was cringe city. Oh my god. - AnnieCallie

6 Jeff Buckley - Grace

Sentimental crap.

It's pretty boring so far.. - AlphaQ

7 I'm Not a Fan But the Kids Like It - Brokencyde

This sucks. Plain and simple.

8 Pink Friday - Nicki Minaj

This has to be the most horrible ear invade piece of crap I have ever listened to. Honestly, this is just a plain embarrassment. The first few music track is nothing but horrible rap verses joined along with disturbing ear disaster beats that will make your ears bleed. My friends are the real reason I had bought the album. They were saying how good of a rappers and singer she was and she was the next best thing to come along. Honestly, they must have mistaken her with Lauryn Hill. Believe it or not, the same day I bought the album was the same day I returned it. And till this day ever time her name is brought up, I will never forget the disaster I caused to my brain to ever doubt I will ever be able to trust today's female hip hop ever again.

Only on here because Nicki Minaj when it's not even THAT awful. - DCfnaf

The music is sickening, repetitive and stupid. Why or how anyone could enjoy this is far, far beyond me. Shouldn't even be classed as rap, rap is Eminem or Lupe Fiasco and Hopsin. This is just garbage.

This album is not bad despite being a Niki album, it has noce songs like "Fly" and "Super Bass". - DaisyandRosalina

9 Lulu - Metallica

Lou Reed's vocals totally killed all of the songs in this album. He sounds he can't catch up with the heavy beats. And the moment I heard James Hetfield scream "SMALL TOWN GIRL! " at the first track of its album, I'm pretty sure some of my brain cells felt like exploding.

Reed wasn't even trying to sing. It was made to sound like a story with music in the background. - Mumbizz01

This is not, I repeat, NOT A METALLICA ALBUM. This is a Lou Reed album that Metallica sadly starred in.

Come on, it's not that bad compared to Reed's "Metal Machine Music."

Metallica made Death Magnetic, only to come back 3 years later with this godawful collab with Lou Reed... - Metarock

10 Sorry for Party Rocking - LMFAO

This is not an album. It is more like a random mash up of rap and mainstream dubstep. Note that nobody likes the combination of these two genres.

Autotune, autotune, AUTOTUNES EVERYWHERE in this album, there's no real music in this crap. One of my friend bought the album, once he played it. My hears literally bleed.

All I can say is, this definitely deserves to be #3

I love this album! Everyday I'm shufflin'! :3

Even worse than there first one (and any album ever made). - Caleb9000

12 Sremmlife - Rae Sremmurd

This is what music has come to.

Please bring this disgrace to rap back into the Top 10. - AlphaQ

This is basically what id sound like I'd I made a song at 10 and took drugs. - AlphaQ

I heard No Flex Zone and it was just... no. I was like meh about No Type but the rest is garbage. - allamassal

13 Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - Nicki Minaj

The first half of the album consists of awful beats, even worse lyrics, and some of Nicki Minaj's most annoying fake accents ever. The 2nd half is mainly forgettable dance tracks that could be put out by pretty much anyone. However, the last track is what REALLY sinks this album. This song's pretty much been thrashed to death everywhere else on the internet, so I won't say much here. Anyone who's heard that song understands.

This album is hippopotamus and cow feces combined!

Someone should reload a gun and put this thing to sleep

Her 1st album had some good songs like Fly, Super Bass, and Roman's Revenge but this one is a lot worse, she doesn't have many rap songs on this album... instead she puts in a lot of EDM or Dance-pop songs that just don't fit her voice very well. Va Va Voom and Pound the Alarm are pretty good but other than that it just isn't as good as her other albums Pink Friday and The Pinkprint. - MistyMay113

14 Bangerz - Miley Cyrus

This chick's gonna the ruin the youth of America with her image.

This isn't even THAT bad of an album. Look at the first comment with 10 likes about Miley ruining the youth with her image. What does her image have to do with this album at all? The tracks you should avoid on this album are the Mike WiLL Made-It tracks and listen to Wrecking Ball, Adore You, and FU. - DCfnaf

I've rarely heard any songs on this album but I already know it sucks.

I liked this. Miley gets WAY too much hate. - AnnieCallie

15 Hotel California - Tyga

Lol. Literally EVERYTHING FROM Tyga is garbage. This is no excuse. Tyga has to be the worst rapper I've ever imagined (put Lil B to the side for now...) but honestly he never had a song over 0/5 - AlphaQ

The name is ripped off from Eagles album. - malamJONES

16 Believe - Justin Bieber

Nothing is good about Justin Bieber. He is the antichrist.

Liberally using the word antichrist is just as bad as his music.

This is a bad album. Not My World 2.0 (I haven't listened to My World 2.0 yet but I defend it because people hate it because of 1 song). Most of the songs were pretty awful in this one but at least Boyfriend was decent...2/10 - AlphaQ

This album sucks ass! It's basically like any other of his trashy little girl albums and little 5 and 6 years old cry over!

Why is Thriller above this? - ProPanda

17 The Pinkprint - Nicki Minaj

On Christmas of 2014, my sister bought me this crap thinking I liked it. Of course not wanting to hurt her feeling, I said thank you with the fakest smile plastered across my face. When all of the guest left I went up to my room and took the CD out and snapped it in half. A few weeks later my sister asked me if I listened to the whole album and how I liked it. I lied and told her it was awesome. She actually brought over her friend who is a fan of Nicki Minaj and her friend wanted to see what the cover of the album looked like. I lied to her and told her when I was taking the CD out of the CD play, it feel out my had on to the floor and I accidentally stepped on it. And guess what? SHE WENT OUT TWO DAYS LATER TO BY ME ANOTHER ONE!

All I can say is awful, awful, awful. - PositronWildhawk

Except if you knew that there were more tracks on this album than just "Anaconda", you'd like this album - DCfnaf

Put against Relapse, this album would lose. It has its good songs, but Eminem up against Nicki Minaj? There's no fight. Even this versus *shudder* We Made You.

This is actually not that bad. Apart from its atrocious downs, it's highs are still pretty good quality stuff. 4/10 - AlphaQ

18 Angelic 2 the Core - Corey Feldman

This album breaks whole new grounds on what it means to be a bad album. It pushes far past mediocrity and blandness, and ends up doing a 180 degree spin making the experience of the album truly special.

Should be first - Jiorl

I wanna die. You know why? Because this album exists

Worse than Honest so far...UGHHH - AlphaQ

19 Crazy Hits - Crazy Frog

An entire Crazy Frog album... Why was this made? - Zach808

This is a classic


20 Evolution - Blood On the Dance Floor
21 Curtain Call - Eminem

ARE YOU JOKING ME? Loose Yourself, Stan, Sing for the Moment, The Real Slim Shady, Without Me and more are MASTERPIECES! The only songs I didn't like on this album was "Fack" and "Shake That"! THE REST IS BRILLIANT! - micdanchris

Normally an album with 2 bad songs wouldn't make it a terrible album. But Shake That and particularly FACK (the worst song ever) are so inhumanly atrocious that it completely swamps out the rest of the album. Even as someone who thinks Eminem is one of the best artists of all time, even I have to admit this was kriffing garbage. 2/10 - WonkeyDude98

If We Give A 10/10 To All The Songs Expect Fack, Fack Would Still Get A -10,000.that's How 1 Song Can Destroy An Entire Master peace

This album is nowhere as good as Eminem fans think, a 10/10? Are you joking?! Fack, one of the worst rap songs and Eminem worst song is here.

Maybe 8/10 or 7/10 - DaisyandRosalina

23 Your Ears Will Bleeping Bleed - Dot Dot Curve

Well, at least the title of the album warned us. - DCfnaf

24 Artpop - Lady Gaga

This is catchy too, just like what I said on Prism. - JaysTop10List

It's lady gaga, what did you expect? A masterpiece?

This album is the floppest of all so ugly and too much nonsense the lyrics aren't strong enough unlike her last album

25 My World - Justin Bieber

Girly sing lyrics. Horrible.

Umm...did anyone even bother to listen to this album...? - AlphaQ

26 Fortune - Chris Brown

Chris Brown's made some bad songs and albums, but this album takes it to a whole new level. This catastrophe consists of terrible beats, whiny vocals, and immature, pornographic lyrics that look like a 13 year old wrote them. There's not one good or even tolerable song on this album. Even Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded had some pop filler sandwiched between the terrible songs. Even Rebirth at least had Drop The World. Hell, even Chris Brown's other albums had some tracks that weren't terrible. However, on this album, every single song is absolute crap. This album was released around the same time as Usher's "Looking 4 Myself", and even though they're both trying to accomplish a similar goal, the quality gap between them is massive. Get Usher's album, and stay away from this turd.

"Trumpet Lights" says basically everything about this torturous album. - DCfnaf

No offense but I think this catastrophe requires the Top 5. - 51im_Ro55_2002

Thus album:
1%: Something that's actually proper music
99%: BEEP BOOK BEEP BOOK BWAHPP + weird Noises

No lie ~ AlphaQ

Eh its grown on me again. Strong 1/10 - 51im_Ro55_2002

30 Heartbreak on a Full Moon - Chris Brown

According to AlphaQ this is a nightmare filled with 45 tracks.

31 Daddy's Boy: Into the Closet Part 1 - Daddy's Boy
32 The Fame - Lady Gaga

Why are so many good albums on this list? Their is a such thing as good pop music. And this album, and every Gaga album, are pretty good examples of good pop music.

I love this one. Gaga classic. - AnnieCallie

Lol, this is a good album - DCfnaf

Y'all who voted for this are haters screw you all

33 Encore - Eminem

To be fair, this album is decent. It's just not good compared to Eminem standards, that's all. 6/10 - AlphaQ

Has anybody seen the back cover? That's what makes it worse.

Ok, rant time. Eminem is amazing. He's up there with Biggie and 2Pac. But this album is... garbage is the only word I have.

34 Up All Night - One Direction

Ugh. Don't even try looking this album up to see how bad it is... Anything by One Direction is crap. They are only popular because girls think they're good looking, if those guys looked like trolls, these girls would run away in horror. 90% of people would cut off their ears rather than this albums being the only noise they could listen to. It consists of annoying vocals rounds and the absolute cheesy, retched teenage pop mashed together with no real instruments and too-perfect stupid melodies with just useless noise. I hate this album almost as much as I love my favorite music...come on, it's not listenable for more than ten minutes. In fact it's torture to listen to this on repeat.

Yes, I was up all night in the hospital getting stitches after listening to this horrible train wreck.

Its 1D, of course its awful! Its buy a boy band, after all. - Lucretia

Zanyne left because he listened to this! - KidA

This is so much worse than SremmLife. Trust me. This is a pain to listen to, an extreme one too. It hurts my ears listening to something so horrendous, what's upsetting is that this is from the best genre of music which means this is destroying rap. Plus, it's Future, a feg I detest. -500/10. Worst album to exist. - AlphaQ

Guys I think were safe cause I karate chopped this album because it's too late. - AlphaQ

Did I mention Future and "Karate Chop"? - DCfnaf

Overrated and mediocre. Its not the best or the worst to be honest 🤷‍♀️ - AnnieCallie

45 Disney Channel Play It Loud - Various Disney Artists

Wow. This is just. Wow. I hadn't heard this album, and I listened to it. That one song the other poster mentioned is one of the most pointless, generic, shallow songs I have ever heard. Every song on this album is a pile of trash that should be thrown off a mountain into the ground and burned in hell forever. That disgusting video for that Ross Lynch song just has him doing stupid dance moves and playing random guitar riffs that don't even go along with the song. The song has no structure or rhythm, no beat or anything. Lyrics are meaningless. The other songs are no good either. This is FAR worse than anything by One Direction or Justin Bieber (don't get me wrong, I don't like them at ALL either).

This is easily the worst album ever. It has the worst song of all time (I Got That Rock N'Roll by Ross Lynch), but it has many other terrible ones. Bella Thorne, Zendaya, Bridget Mendler, Selena Gomez, and other ones cannot sing. Disney, not every person on the globe can sing! But they don't care, as long as gullible kids keep buying their stuff, they will put any crap out there.

This pathetic excuse for an album proves that kids will listen to pretty much whatever rubbish the market spoon feeds to them. - therootbeer

It contains loads of awful artists such as Ross Lynch, Debby Ryan, Zendaya, and Dove Cameron. - Cartoonfan202

Disney SUUIIICCKS - AlphaQ

46 Teenage Dream - Katy Perry

This album was critically panned by critics for its juvenile lyrics, trite melodies, and repetitiveness. Sure, it may have several number ones in the U.S. but that's because of a thing called payola. That and manipulation of the charts. Just because you have several number ones does not make you a legend. Ask Ace of Base about that ordeal. In addition, I bet Katy will be forgotten by 2025 (unless she pulls some dirty tricks and manipulates the media, I feel she is such a shady person) and her CDs will be in the bin for 50 cents. Worst pop album ever. Worst pop star ever (she cannot sing or dance). So there!

This is OKAY but everyone treats it like trash. But while the lyrics are quite juvenile, the songs are quite catchy and fun. 5/10 - AlphaQ

I cannot believe this album is not number 1. This album is worse than Bangerz, Miley and her Dead Petz, My World 2.0, and Pink Friday combined. Absolutely no good songs. Terrible production in every song, juvenile lyrics, and Katy Perry's usual use of autotune. - TheMusicNerd

Before she protested against marilyn manson. - AnnieCallie
