Worst Albums of All Time

The Top Ten

1 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

Good! Now it's on top of this list, lets keep it here. Also, STOP CLICKING ON BLACK STAR IF YOU DON'T WANT IT THIS HIGH!

2 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

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.

More like Epic Fail!

He looks like if Adam Lambert had a malnourished brother that was in the womb for too short of time

Vote for this everyone. - Gehenna

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.

Vote for everything on this list everyone. I want David Bowie to sink towards the bottom of the list. - Gehenna

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

How is David Bowie worse than kidz bop?

5 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."

I thought this album was a weird fever dream I had one day. But, sadly, it's real. - ripcurl113

6 Sremmlife - Rae Sremmurd

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.

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

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

7 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, 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

This album is hippopotamus and cow feces combined!

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

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.

Super Bass and Roman’s Revenge are fun songs. Do any of you notice how abnormally LONG Nicki Minaj’s legs are? - PhoenixAura81

9 #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.

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

The Contenders

11 Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven - Kid Cudi

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.

This album is so bad that I even purchased a copy to smash with my hammer and email the results to my friends. - Mumbizz01

I understand that Kid Cudi wanted to express himself differently, but there are better ways to do it than this. This album was entirely ear-shattering. - Mcgillacuddy

I enjoy this - mixtapeweezy

12 Bangerz - Miley Cyrus

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

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

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

The worst album in the world

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

Pretentious, meaningless and uncreative lyrics - jameshoward

14 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

15 Sremmlife 2 - Rae Sremmurd

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 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

17 Amerikkkant - Ministry
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

19 Invasion of Privacy - Cardi B Invasion of Privacy - Cardi B

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

20 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

Why do you feel the need to put caps on every word? And I also can't imagine you've listened to the full length of all of these albums you're saying are the worst, if any. - somelifeonaplanet

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

21 Jeff Buckley - Grace

Sentimental crap.

It's pretty boring so far.. - AlphaQ

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

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

22 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

23 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

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

This is a classic


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

25 Day69 - 6ix9ine

My World 2.0 is worse than this?

Hey haters of Justin Bieber, be grateful that he doesn't scream the n-word into the microphone in any of his songs off that album. - StarlightSpanks

Why do people like the sound of a guy screaming the n-word into a mic over a synth beat every 5 seconds?

A guy screaming the n-word in every song. - AlphaQ

Kill me please dear lord, before I hear this underworldly disgrace to the human race again.

26 Reputation - Taylor Swift

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

27 Pinkerton - Weezer

Why is this masterpiece here?

28 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

Fack was the only bad song on there - jameshoward

Everything by this Chris Clown ripoff. Deserves to be hated. This is no exception THIS IS HIS WORST STUFF. I give it a -5/10. Listening to every f()cking track makes me wanna puke. - AlphaQ

Uggh disgusting illiterate writing and just ugh please don’t buy this

30 Souljaboytellem.com - Soulja Boy

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

B nghfjugnfnb nyujgfnbfdhyfujngbfhyujngfbybfv cbhytbdtynytfbtuntfb tf. Sorry, I was wiping my head on the keyboard, this album does not deserve to exist. If this is what music is supposed to be, I have lost all faith in humanity.

31 Lil Pump - Lil Pump

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

32 Graffiti - Chris Brown

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

Basically Fortune but better. - AlphaQ

This is when Chris Brown started to go downhill - DaWyteNight

33 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

34 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.

35 1989 - Taylor Swift

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

Oh, come on. This album was great. I'm not a Taylor Swift fan, but even I'll admit that this album was good.

This album isn't anything special, but she does actually write her own music without any help from anyone else. You have to give her credit for that.

Ew this album sucks

40 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

41 The Click - AJR

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

This was a good album! Get this off the list! - UltimateCraig

42 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

43 The Last Text Ep - Jacob Sartorius

Now, this should be number one. - Trucker55

44 ? - Xxxtentacion
45 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

46 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

47 My World - Justin Bieber

Girly sing lyrics. Horrible.

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

48 All the Right Reasons - Nickelback

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.

At least this is better than Sounding the Seventh Trumpet by A7X that has awful screams in it - christangrant
