Top Ten Worst Artists Ever

The Top Ten

1 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, song writer, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada (despite once claiming he was Part-Indian) and he is Christian. He is the son of an author, Pattie Mallet. 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.

Keep him at number one. Not only is he an insult to music, but a disgrace to the male gender, and to humanity itself. He is talentless and ugly and can't write a good lyric to save his life. I saw the list of nominations for the iHeartRadio Music Awards and I was PISSED OFF when I saw this chimpanzee (no offense chimps) as the best male artist.

2 Skrillex Skrillex Skrillex is an American (Born in 1988, in Los Angeles, California) EDM producer who is known for popularizing dubstep. 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

What the heck happen to rock n roll and real instruments now all they use is a stupid computer and this guy is a phony and will always be he may be a genius at computer but I hate his music

3 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) were a British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015. 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

4 The Jonas Brothers The Jonas Brothers

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

I agree they were bad

This is music that is just for stupid people who want something commercial... If you like her, you are retarded
Why the hell is Nirvana, Metallica, Queen, Led Zeppelin and Lynyrd Skynyrd in this list? Some idiots have a really bad taste in music - rock2metal

Bad music, and why does anyone think she is pretty just boggles the mind!

She just suck! What can she do? Nothing'...

If she wasnt pretty no one would care about her, she can't sing, can't dance and can't write songs... She sucks!

Wannabe Lady Gaga

Tries to get all the attention by acting like an idiot. 5 years ago, she was okay with uplifting songs like "The Climb" but I now I think she is the most retarded and stupid person ever. She needs to grow a brain. - CrimsonRayzr

"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

Nepotism made this b**** famous.. Just!

8 Lil Wayne Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is an American hip hop "artist" and is often referred to as one of the worst "rappers" of all time. He was signed to Cash Money Records by Birdman at a young age. He has been critically acclaimed and even more panned throughout his career. He's often criticized for talking more.

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.

9 Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj is a Trinidadian American rapper / pop music artist. Nicki is most known for songs like "Anaconda", "Only", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe" . 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.

The Contenders

11 Naked Bothers Band

Awesome great perfect wonderful they're in the list! Yay! I'm so happy about it that they're in the list! But they should've been number two!,!

These guys don't even exist anymore. NBB is no good, but all these other people are great! - YumWaffles

Their music sucks, their T.V. show make me vomit, nbb are simply the worst!

12 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

13 Tokio Hotel Tokio Hotel Tokio Hotel are a pop rock band from Magdeburg, Germany, consisting of Bill Kaulitz (singer), Tom Kaulitz (guitar), Gustav Schäfer (drums) and Georg Listing (keyboards, bass) that formed in 2001. more.

His name is bill... How do you not know? He has an identical twin... Who is a boy! If he were a girl... He'd be a fraternal twin because there is obviously SOMETHING different.

She performed acting roles in stage productions and television shows like "The Mickey Mouse Club" as a child before signing with Jive Records in 1997 and going on to become a pop superstar more.

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!


15 Rae Sremmurd Rae Sremmurd Rae Sremmurd is an American hip hop duo, composed of two brothers, Khalif "Swae Lee" Brown (born June 7, 1995) and Aaquil "Slim Jxmmi" Brown (born December 29, 1993).
