The Top Ten

1 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. more.

excuse me? how could be this boy so low? he doesn't even sing! he dances and moves his hair, and all teenagers fall in love with him... maybe he's not the worst ever but certainly those other artists are not worse than him

Bieber CANNOT sing just cause some famous person found him on YouTube and gave him a record deal does not mean he should actually be famous

Why is rihanna on this she is the best singer ever

The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Nirvana, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Lynyrd Skynyrd... First of all, Why the hell is LMFAO above the Beatles? The greatest artists of all time are on this list, which proves that everybody voting here is 8 years old, and that this website needs to be taken down.

He deserved to be hated he has turned his fans into brain washed zombies. He sings like a dieing whale that had lost it's voice. I don't understand why people even like him, listen to him, and would ever have the nerve to make a movie about him. God if you are listening if you give us back Paul Walker we will give you Justin Bieber in return.

2 The Jonas Brothers The Jonas Brothers The Jonas Brothers are an American pop rock band. Formed in 2005, they gained popularity from their appearances on the Disney Channel television network.

Yikes. I love both Metallica and Nirvana and sadly have to agree that they are overrated, but they are anything but the worst. And to even put classics like Queen and Zeppelin on this list is just insane. How can you trash on them when they are the founding fathers of rock? People that should be at the top of this list are Lil Wayne, kesha, nickelback, Linkin Park, and selena gomez.

When it asks for a reason for why you want to thumbs down a comment and there is no because of down syndrome, hardly overrated, there rated highly because they're gods and even suggesting Linkin Park be on this list is reason enough for me to nail your ball sack to a race car and making it go

WHAT THE HELL ARE NIRvANA EVEN DOING ON THIS LIST!? , but the jonas brothers suck, they are very bad and are terrible live.

They Should Be Number One They Make Me Want To Blow My Head Off Along With TRhe Naked Idiot Band Metallica Should Not Be On Here They Should Be On Top Ten Best Artists Ever - MetClub123

at least nirvana can play drums, guitar and the vocals are really rocking the audience but this one just come onstage play fake guitars, and the riffs are very simple - ronluna

He is part of the bands Jack Ü (DJ) and From First To Last (Lead Singer). His album Recess debuted at 4 on the BB200, tying him with Zedd for the highest debut for an EDM album on more.

No, Skrillex, a computer is not an instrument. If I wanted to hear the beeps and boops, I could just watch Transformers. - Qazsound

I don't care what counts as a "real" instrument. Even with people who just use computers to make their music, they still have to compose the songs. That takes time, effort, and talent, and I respect electronic music makers just as much as other musicians. This isn't my problem with Skrillex.

My problem with Skrillex is that his music sounds like a chainsaw having sex with a blender.

Not stop being stupid skrillex were could you think tis

I don't get the point of skrillex..

The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records more.

This "One Direction Infection" needs to stop. It's like people ditch music that takes REAL talent for this stuff. And to think the boy-band craze ended in the mid-early 2000's.

So true, I am a girl, I hate ID ONLY GIRL THAT THOSE! Anyways girls are literally crazy with these people, they even think that they are better than the Beatles, BEATLES! That's THE BEST BAND EVER, BEATLES!

I will NEVER EVER EVER EVER like one direction! - dangergurl

I don't care toom much about them, but I don't believe that they deserve to be #2 I mean seriously

Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. more.

Put her in number one. She is not only a disgrace to music but to humanity itself. She is ugly and talentless, not to mention she can't write good lyrics to save her life. They literally took the worst musician they could find and they made her famous. Today's music culture is in the garbage. I saw a list by a stupid magazine called Stereogum, where they made a list of the worst musicians, putting Kansas and Mick Jagger on it. If this talentless chimpanzee (no offense to chimpanzees) is considered a good musician, then I have lost my hopes in humanity. Let's hope that one day we get good artists back.

I kid you not, listening to 'stupid hoe' should be a form of torture

She's not an artist she's a talentless porn star enough said

Nicki minaj is worse than jb.

"I wish I were never on Disney."

That shows how stupid she is. Here's why:
She's saying that she wish she weren't on Disney, her first channel, which lead her to a larger career and fan base, fans that are idiots. So, she's saying that she would never want to be famous, technically. Great job, Miley. A 5th grader knows more than a 20 year old. - maddyparrot22

At first she was ok but now she is disgusting and weird

He is a disgrace to hip hop/rap. He should be working at burger king


I get it, Justin Bieber and One Direction are both awful, but come on. He makes no sense, has no meaning, and raps about whores, money, drugs and stupidity. I swear to God, him, Drake, Minaj, and all the "wonderful" people at YM Records need to go shut the place down. OR I WILL.

The Contenders

She ruined everything Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Green Day, and Weezer did to bring music back to its pure state with her candy pop that only 10 year old girls listen to! I can't believe Bono and Kurt made the list! They write MUSIC! That is something Britney Spears doesn't know about and NEVER WILL!


17 Kidz Bop

Unlike the good bands and artists on this list kids bop should be #1 (no it's not hashtag 1, it's number one) they have no talent whatsoever they butcher other songs and can't come up with their own music. Those kids and their managers need to be blown up by a nuclear bomb now before they release their 26th album. Kill Kidz bop before it's too late

Ugh I just can't stand them they just drive me nuts. I mean if you're going to sing covers, at leat make them good, or you may as well go back to singing the itsy bitsy spider

Backstreet Boys are the best Gangster Rap Crew ever lived on earth and moon. Who the hell voted this brilliant Hardcore Gangster Rap Crew on this list is an absolutely uneducated human being. Even 2Pac said about Backstreet Boys: "Backstreet Boys? Yes amazing dudes! ". He said that about this Boys because he knew good Gangster Rap!

Angry greetings,

Worst singer ever. You should be in top 1!

Anybody who knows something about music could understand that Selena is not a good singer. OK, she is pretty and she has done great jop in her acting career but she would never be a good singer.

No way should they be on this list let alone 15th smells like teen spirit, heart shaped box and breed are some of the greatest songs ever and anyone who has voted them up is a complete moron who knows nothing about music

Why are people voting for them? Kurt Cobain didn't even want the fame he is getting blamed for!

Really? The guys that brought grunge to the mainstream and became the band of the 90s in the process?

Finally, someone realizes their useless music. Radiohead and A.I.C. would've gotten all the fame Nirvana did if they committed suicide while on a huge tour.

They may of got the fame if they were even slightly as good as the greatest grunge band ever

32 T-Pain T-Pain Faheem Rashad Najm, better known by his stage name T-Pain, is an American recording artist and music producer from Tallahassee, Florida.

He should be in the top 10

The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums). The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition more.

While their music sounds good, Led Zeppelin's lyrics are terrible. Two of their songs that stand out to me for bad lyrics are 'Stairway to Heaven' and 'Dazed and Confused.'

The fact that LZ is on here makes me question humanity.

35 Queen Queen Queen are an English rock band formed in 1970. Members were Freddie Mercury (Vocals and Piano), Brian May (Guitar, Vocals), Roger Taylor (Drums, Vocals), and John Deacon (Bass Guitar, Vocals). Before forming into Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury more.

Queen are the greatest band ever, I hate that so many trolls use this list

What Michael Jackson doing on this list? Dude, he's best of the best, duh

He is a pioneer of music. Don't hate on him.

This dude is overrated. He's like the JB of the 80s/90s. His voice sounds like a British transgendered woman. And he's horrible at everything he does except dancing.

37 Mariah Carey Mariah Carey Mariah Carey, born March 27, 1970, is an American singer, songwriter and actress. She is one of the biggest best-selling women in the music industry, with 18 number 1 records to her name.

40 Don Omar

I'm a proud Puertorican male and it bothers me to hear these supposed artists whom consider themselves musicians, songwriters etc. Even get air play. This Genre of "Reggaeton" is an embarrassment to real latin artists with real talent. I consider this Genre noise pollution. There is no creativity with music hear at all, Zero. Don Omar takes credit and is recognized as the pioneer of this movement so he gets the title of Worst Artist by default. Daddy Yankee, DON OMAR AND THE REST OF THESE CLOWNS. All they did was take a Reggae Beat and rap to it. That's it that's all they did. Where is the talent in that? True Artists from the island that I love are El Gran Combo, Tito Rojas, Hector Lavoe and countless others. They are true artists in every sense of the word. That Genre is called Salsa and that is something that we should be proud of.

41 Robin Thicke Robin Thicke Robin Charles Thicke is an American singer, songwriter and record producer. Thicke has worked with numerous artists.

He has a foot fetish and he's anything but THICC

Robin Thicke is also an amazing Gangster Rap Artist but his Bronx Type flow is pretty annoying, that's why I absolutely agree he is on this list.

She is best known for writing break up songs and for having more than 5 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching a documentary about more.

I can't stand her AT ALL. Nearly every girl or woman likes her which is just stupid. All of her songs have the same theme and she's insanely overrated.

I'm a girl and I have to agree. She's very pretty and she does have a good singing voice, but she's just not creative in her music. It seems like break ups are all she ever sings about, which does get old after a while, making her hard to listen to. I think she's pretty and nice and all, but I am NOT a Taylor Swift fan. Not of her music.

I Expected to see this a little bit higher than here 'cause this girl sings live like like something is stepping on a throat, she's just a drama, not a singer.

How can you have all these great artists - Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, Queen, and so on - and have Katy Perry be so low? That's like burning all the great, influential books you come in contact with and choosing to read Twilight. There's just no life put into the finished product, it's just all for money and fame. - d3bates

Katy Perry your movie is totaly fake you do not live in a fairy tale. You are a good singer but I hate you

Totally she is a true Christian, gospel, pop-metal and pop rock
All of these good singers and bands and tottaly is JB is a stupid and a b---h - Tifficulty

What are they doing here?
