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.

Why is this #2? this shouldn't even be in this list at all. - winterbreeze

Why in the city of Yonkers is this #1?! Not the biggest fan of Bowie, but he's a decent artist. This is a decent album. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

What? This is a masterpiece man.

2 My World 2.0 - Justin Bieber

Blackstar should not be in first place

Please let this replace Blackstar...

Justin bieber is a horrible person he is homophobic and racist and he sucks! his music just burns my ears! - blueLight

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

3 Epic - Blood on the Dance Floor

Blackstar needs to be number "off the list" - LightningStrike

I haven't listened to this yet but I have heard several of the songs and my god are they awful, if you think rap has disgusting lyrics wait until you hear this sh--! I hate Dahvie and the rest of that horrid band with a burning passion. - CharismaticKat

Come on this trash is below a great album.

This must be above the great album by David Bowie.

4 Lulu - Metallica

This isn't a personal Metallica album. It should say by Lou Reed and Metallica - Sabbath

It's on the list 3 times, wow

Terrible. But does not belong on this list. 6ix9ine is not only the worst rapper in history but one of the worst people too. - lilrocketman

Metallica holds it back - mixtapeweezy

5 Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj is the worst music artist of all time - DarkBoi-X

She's not a music artist. Music isn't supposed to make you want to go deaf. - Cyri

Two words: Stupid Hoe. - CharismaticKat

This album, where do I start? One thing is that it has the worst song of all time on it, Stupid Hoe (which is supposed to be a "diss track") All the other songs give me ten different types of AIDS too. There's no good song on this. I listened to it, and then I proceeded to throw it into a bonfire. Seriously, this album makes Day69 look like Illmatic. Day69 may be the first 0/100, but if I actually wanted to review this garbage, it would be the first negative out of 100 ever. - hiphopgod

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.

6 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.

MY EARS ARE BLEEDING! I went to a dance and all they played was Kidz Bop. I was trying not to throw up as they mutilated my favorite songs like Bad and Boujee.

Ruiners of Music - Izalien

They are all wannabe singers, I respect them but at least amke your own songs - Izalien

7 Pink Friday - Nicki Minaj

It's not even THAt bad. 7/10 - AlphaQ

Nicki Minaj sucks, but at least half of the songs on this album isn't about sex or drugs. - XxembermasterxX

Super Bass is pretty good to be honest - CharismaticKat

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.

8 Sremmlife - Rae Sremmurd

Eh, I could forgive this after a 2nd listen buts its still awful. 1/10 - AlphaQ

I love this album. These guys have unique voices and all their songs are fun to listen too. Even My X which is a hard breakup song is really funny and just a lot of hype fun. My favorite song is probably This Could Be Us; No Flex Zone is a close second. Should not be on a worst list.

This is what music has come to.

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

9 #newgoreorder - Borgore

Goadwawful thing. Even worse than Total Xanarchy which is a disaster. -3/10 - AlphaQ

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

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

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

10 Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven - Kid Cudi

I enjoy this - mixtapeweezy

This list is irrelevant. I mean look at this. This album which is a total mess is considered by people who voted on this site to be the "61st" worst album of all-time yet somehow Goblin from Tyler the Creator is on the 10th spot, which makes it worse than THIS?!?!? HOW IN THE HELL? ARE YOU PEOPLE ACTUALLY DEAF? And how is Black Star from David BOWIE 1ST PLACE WHEN THIS EXISTS?

This list is a joke and you shouldn't take it seriously. Everybody can vote anything and some people will vote ironically and not seriously. Ignore it.

My caps lock key got sticky when I wrote that comment - venomouskillingmachine

Cringe album.

This is pretentious emo garbage. Whiny and manipulative person trying to make a girl not dump him. Ew. 0/10 - AlphaQ

Pretentious, meaningless and uncreative lyrics - jameshoward

The songs are too short, the lyrics sound lazy and corny and the production is awful. - jameshoward

12 Hotel California - Tyga

The name is ripped off from Eagles album. - malamJONES

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

13 Midnight Memories - One Direction

Oh god when I first head the self titled song I was like "KILL ME NOW! ". Never should've been created and is one of the reasons music is dying! - micdanchris

Any one direction albums are gonna be absolutely putrid, I mean come

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

Worst band ever anybody who likes this crap are probably deaf or 12 years old.Full of autotune even though zane was still in the band.Go listen to real music instead

14 Sorry for Party Rocking - LMFAO

More like Sorry for Existing - Hellohi

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

15 Sremmlife 2 - Rae Sremmurd

Black Beatles is great though. - CharismaticKat

OKAY...Okay...okaay. This is a decent improvement from SremmLife but it's still garbage. The only good song being Black Beatles which raised the album from a -1/5 to a 1/5 since Black Beatles got a 5/5 from me. But that doesn't make it the best album of 2016. This would be in the Top 3 Worst or maybe hit #1 in my lists.

though Black Beatles was awesome. This is a weak 0/5. It's in my Top 10 worst albums. - AlphaQ

16 Bangerz - Miley Cyrus

The worst album in the world

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

I liked this. Miley gets WAY too much hate.

Even ignoring her image, this album is not good at all. - DCfnaf

17 Angelic 2 the Core - Corey Feldman

The worst album ever


Yup this is bad

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.

18 Amerikkkant - Ministry
19 Loner - Missio

Oh God This Was Horrendous In Every Aspect. There's No Album Of 2016 Or 2017 That Beats The Atrocity Of This. - AlphaQ

Voting For This To Get It Over Macklemore And 1D. - AlphaQ

21 Invasion of Privacy - Cardi B Invasion of Privacy - Cardi B

Getting drugged and robbed is still more enjoyable than listening to this album

It's not that bad. 6/10 - AlphaQ

This should be in the top 50. All the songs on this album I have heard are TRASH, especially I Like It which is one of the most irritating songs of 2018. - allamassal

My most hated person in the industry. That’s saying something. Worst album literally ever - lilrocketman

22 Pinkerton - Weezer

Trolls - LightningStrike

Why is this masterpiece here?

23 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

24 Fortune - Chris Brown

This album is made up of pervertic lyrics, overly-autotunes vocals and horrid beats. Makes sense why its his worst yet. 0/10 - AlphaQ

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

25 Jeff Buckley - Grace

This album is so crap and this mamaboy would never had a record deal if it was'nt for his dady.

It's pretty boring so far.. - AlphaQ

Sentimental crap.

Why the hell is this album here? Sentimental crap my balls, have you heard Simple Plan? - Pato_cargo

26 Graffiti - Chris Brown

This is when Chris Brown started to go downhill - DaWyteNight

In contrast to the previous vote I can safely say this is Fortune but even worse

Basically Fortune but better. - AlphaQ

27 Lil Pump - Lil Pump

Not bad


Rap music is plain bad and shouldn't exist. This album literally has a song where he raps a sentence over and over again

28 The Fame - Lady Gaga

Not that bad. - DarkBoi-X

I actually like this album

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.

29 1989 - Taylor Swift

It's alright in my opinion. - CharismaticKat

Ew this album sucks

Taylor Swift doing grunge, punk, or hair metal? That sounds horrifying. Thank god she stuck to pop or else we would've had a disaster on our hands even worse than that year's Hot 100. - Zach808

30 I Am Not a Human Being - Lil Wayne

Well, you are a human being, but you sure give a bad name to humans with your crap music.

This gives a bad name to what Lil Wayne claims he isn't.


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

The Kids don't Like This Album Though. 0/10 - AlphaQ

99% of Emo/Scene music I have listened to is crap.This is no exception - DarkBoi-X

The kids like what?

This sucks. Plain and simple.

32 Prism - Katy Perry

Loved it until she protested against marilyn manson.

Ridiculous amounts of cliches. So much that Gawker did an article on 224 of them.

This album is horrible. The only album that can possibly be worse than this is Teenage Dream. - TheMusicNerd

I admit that there was a few catchy songs here and there like International Smile. - JaysTop10List

33 Crazy Hits - Crazy Frog

The froh has a PENIS. Why is that being showed on CN?

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

This is a classic


34 The Click - AJR

One of my friends likes AJR - DarkBoi-X

I saw Melon, ARTV and Spectrum Pulse's review on the album and they were all bad, so I listened to the 3 first tracks and was disgusted. But I do gotta admit, the strings on The Good Part are amazing

God, not this pretentious crap. - DCfnaf

Worst pop album of the year. - AlphaQ

36 Souljaboytellem.com - Soulja Boy

Now I know where Lil Pump gets his inspiration from.

I'm surprised this is so low on the list. At least all the above albums can actually be considered music in some way.

I Just Lost Hope In Humanity. First Thriller Being #28 Then Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band Even Being On This List And Now SouljaBoyTellem.com To Being In The Top 10.Who Knows. Maybe Tomorrow Crank that Will Be The Best Song In History.

He actually named his song after his website? lmao - BlueTopazIceVanilla

37 I'm Not a Human Being II - Lil Wayne

That's true. He's a demon who must be cut into 100,000 pieces, burned and buried in the realms of hell

This album is terrible. Terrible lyrics, terrible production, it should be number 1, not number 10

38 Honest - Future

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

AlphaQ: SremmLife amd Fortune have been replaced...this is my new least favorite rap album. Along with goddamn King Soulja 6. Fvck Future and Fvck this trash! -100/10

Du: NOooooooooo - AlphaDu

39 Total Xanarchy - Lil Xan

This album art made me gag. If my ears could gag at the music then they would

This is absolutely godawful in every way. Worst album in this horrid subgene called 'eco-rap'. -2/10 - AlphaQ

40 Rebirth - Lil Wayne

Its like Wayne didn't know what he was going for here. Other than the excellent Drop The World, which was saved by Em, this was almost like a really bad rock-rap album. Like take Knockout, for example. It was absolutely terrible. The guitar line just gets stuck in your head, and what is Nicki Minaj even doing in the song? She adds nothing. I don't even like Wayne, but this was awful. I Am Not A Human Being Was wayy better.

How bad is this album? Well, just look up Lil Wayne playing the guitar on YouTube. That should tell you everything you need to know about it. - Zach808

41 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

42 Reputation - Taylor Swift

The tipping point of saying. Ok Taylor that's enough emo. - LightningStrike

Beat Got Your Six by Five Finger Death Punch as my least favorite album of all time.

43 Minecraft Forever - Phantaboulous

There's actually a Minecraft album? As much as I love Minecraft, this is going too far. - RiverClanRocks

Wow how mature (sarcasm(

autism - Gunner224

44 Evolution - Blood On the Dance Floor
45 ? - Xxxtentacion

No this is good - DarkBoi-X

X deserved it - lilrocketman

46 Nostockingz - Submarine Man
47 Black Panties - R. Kelly

I hate that album cover.😟 - PhoenixAura81

48 All the Right Reasons - Nickelback

Recycled filthy album from a hideous band. - AlphaQ

This album is creatively hollow and pretty much every song is recycled. "Photograph" is one of the worst songs ever made, and so is "Rockstar" with its hilariously awful lyrics about wanting to be a "rockstar" while they're (somewhat) already rockstars. "Far Away" is the only song on the album that is digestible. "Side of a Bullet" is a failed tribute to Dimebag Darrell with awful screams and lyrics ("Uncle Sam taught him to shoot/Maybe a little bit too well") and lethargic guitar riffs, "Savin' Me" doesn't take off and sounds like a rehash, "If Everyone Cared" is too whiny, "Animals" sounds decent but is ruined by Chad Kroeger belching his banal lyrics. Now I said it: All the Right Reasons is one of the worst albums of all time. - LoveMusicLoveLife

Other albums on this list may be technically worse than this (other than the vocals, which are pretty much rock bottom), but they're at least entertaining failures. This album, however, is just flat-out boring. Aside from the laughably bad lyrics in "Rockstar", this album is bad, but not memorable in the slightest.

This was their best album though! They get too much hate in my opinion.

49 Talk Dirty - Jason Derulo

Ew... I hate Jason Derulo. This has to be the worst album in history, all the songs in the album sucked! I hate him so much, there's nothing special about his music. He's an overrated garbage singer, there's so many people that think he's talented, but no! He's seriously talentless. Many people say that he's the best male pop singer and say that he CAN sing live, but no, he's the worst male pop singer who uses many auto tune which tries to make his voice sound good, but no! He's a bad pop singer who cannot sing. Did you guys notice that he cannot sing live? I listened to him sung Want To Want me live on T.V., and he sounded really, really horrible. He should quit singing and stick to dancing. I really hope he looses his singing voice, because I absolutely hate his voice, it's so annoying! Whenever I hear him on the radio...I'll change it to another radio station. Why do so many people who love his music? First of all, his music is always on the radio, and all his albums are overrated ...more

That album cover is AWFUL! - PhoenixAura81

Lyrical wise this is one of the worst albums of all time. (Jason is a good singer but is messed uo when he has to sing these lyrics) so its not the worst. - KidA

This Album Should Be 3rd.Right After My World 2.0 And teenage dreem

50 All the Rage!! - Blood on the Dance Floor

The title explains how I feel about thsee hacks. - 51im_Ro55_2002
