Top Ten Worst Bands Ever


The Top Ten

1 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.

People only like them because there a bunch of pretty boys even though their music sucks - wolphert

A band who are only popular because of their annoying teenage fan base who seem to think being good-looking makes you good at singing.

Seriously, they should be first on this list. Nobody cares about the Joe bros anymore, even if they do suck. At least 1D doesn't have a Disney series, but still...

They were 'Egomaniacs' so they were and hardly made anything Original.

2 Blood On the Dance Floor Blood On the Dance Floor Blood on the Dance Floor is an American scene duo currently consisting of Dahvie Vanity and Fallon Vendetta that formed in 2006. Former members include Jayy von Monroe (2009-2016) and Garrett Ecstasy (2009). All of them provided vocals to the project. more.

Their name should explain how much they suck! It makes me want to bleed on a dance floor! I don't know who idea it was to sign these dudes but they need to be stabbed. One of the guys raped a girl. Come on!

I honestly cannot begin to describe the hatred for this band. I can understand how some people (Young scene girls who want to be apart of something bigger than themselves) might possible buy their "Music", but then we get onto the band themselves. The band (Used quite lightly in this case) consist of two pedophiles who exploit not only underage, but incredibly young girls (ages for girls claiming assault vary from 12 to 17) as a part of a teenage fetish. It's speculated that there are even more girls that this Dahavie has violated, because he's brainwashed these young girls into believing he is a type of God, much like a cult leader.

TL;DR, the band is utterly disgusting and needs to be put down. How this "man" is able to walk around our streets is, frankly, unbelievable.

Imagine if someone took Soft Cell, shoved them through a Color Run, took away their musical talent, replaced the singer's vocal cords with a 13-year-old girl's, converted them to Satanism, and gave them 30,000 estrogen pills. The result would still sound better than this band. Dahvie can't sing (and that girly rap thing is nowhere near a decent substitute), they put no innovation or creativity into their lyrics, and they can't get over the fact that people hate them. Sure, their early stuff was at least somewhat listenable, even if the lyrics made you feel a little violated. But now, and even then, they're hella awful. There's a reason why bands have to audition for record labels and have producers to make it big. This band is what happens when you somehow have enough money to escape the system and create your own. Don't try it, kids.

I realize many dislike One Direction and boy bands in general, but I don't think any of them consisted of 30-somethings who still haven't grown out of their scene phase. - SamanthaW

Everyone likes different things. Some like pop and some like rock. People have to accept that differences make everyone interesting. - felispasta

Metallica should't be on this list, and The Jonas Brothers suck more than my vacuum

These guys are horrible. The rest of the list is horrible too. Who put Metallica, Nirvana, Slipknot, Queen, and A7X in here?

4 Nickelback Nickelback Nickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, Canada. The band is composed of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair.

I don't actually "hate" these guys, I just don't like how they overuse certain themes for their songs like "sex, drugs, strippers, and getting high. " I rather listen to Linkin Park, Metallica, The Beatles, and Three Days Grace in my opinion.

Let's face it, pretty much EVERY Nickelback song is awful, but the worst one is the one where they sing about how they "wanna be a Rockstar". It literally feels like an hour has gone by after you hear it, it drags on so long.

This is bland corporate rock designed to be listened to by moronic rednecks and their wives who think dressing up to go to some cheap bar and getting drunk with this as the soundtrack is "classy".

Quite possibly the worst music Canada has EVER produced and that's saying something considering we have a lot of crap come out of this country.

The only reason I pick these guys is cause I refuse to consider any one higher than this a band, there just guys used by the man to make money off of preteen girl with no taste in music (aside from Brokecyde, cause I don't know who that is) and I do not really like Nickleback. On a totally different note I really like Green Day but I know you have to be into a specific style for that.

Given that most are fortunate enough to never have heard of BotDF or brokeNCYDE, I can confidently say that Nickelback are the worst band to have experienced significant commercial success. - SamanthaW

5 Insane Clown Posse Insane Clown Posse Insane Clown Posse is an American hip hop, horrorcore and rap rock duo consisting of rappers Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, that was formed in 1989 in Detroit. more.

They sound even stupider than they look
Two trailer-trash types who wear face paint, pretend to be a street gang and drench cult devotees in cheap soda called Faygo, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope are more notorious for their beef with Eminem (who pistol-whipped an ICP homey in 2001) than their ham-fisted rap-rock music. They claim that a "dark carnival" visited them one night, prophesied impending apocalypse and made them its messengers. Between this circus gospel, they find plenty of time to rap about 40-ouncers and venereal disease.

WHO. PUT. RAMMSTEIN. ON. THIS. LIST?! Whoever said that has no soul. Insane Clown Posse is by far the worst band to ever exist. They're not even music. They're fat white guys from Detroit who think they're cool because they smoke ungodly amounts of weed and act like thugs. They should be executed. BUT, RAMMSTEIN?! THAT'S THE BEST BAND IN THE WORLD.

They're crap that'll say about a million curse words just to make a "hit". They have no talent, and no style either. My little cousin could pull off better rap lines than them

Swear WAY to much

6 Kidz Bop

They ruin almost every good song. The kids aren't good singers. They should just write their own songs and leave the good ones alone.

They take bad songs, and make it worse than it needs to be - Top15Playthroughs

This isn't even a band, it's a group of overrated kids with terrible voices that make covers of overrated songs. Not only do they not have ANY original content, they change the lyrics to make it more clean and child-friendly, even when the lyrics don't need to be changed at all. These spoiled rich kids get money for singing with a mediocre voice. I can sing a cover for an overrated song, where's my money? This band is here so overprotective parents can have their 5 year old child listen to popular music without hearing anything bad, when really NOTHING IS BAD IN THE SONG WHATSOEVER! Does anyone else agree with me?

Pfft KIDZ BOP IS THE BEST BAND OF ALL TIME! I LOVE HOW THEY terribly recreate songs and uuuh stuff

7 Brokencyde Brokencyde Brokencyde is an American crunkcore musical group from Albuquerque, New Mexico, founded in 2006. The group's lineup consists of David "Se7en" Gallegos and Michael "Mikl" Shea, and musically are one of the founding groups in the crunkcore genre, which is crunk hip-hop with screamed vocals.

Metallica? Nirvana? Led Zeppelin? Pink Floyd? Queen? They are all legendary! I'm not even a Nirvana fan but I'm smart enough to realize they are nowhere near the worst.

Before voting for the mediocre at best One Direction, look up this band and listen to a few of their songs. Brokencyde makes one direction seem like the Beatles and one direction is a bad band. Imagine taking a one direction song, adding in some terrible screaming and rapping, way more autotune, mediocre electronics, and juvenile lyrics about sex and partying such as "you make my pee pee hard". That's what every brokencyde song is like. Believe it or not, there are bands like brokencyde that make music this bad (crunkcore). I really think dot dot curve and broken dye should be in the top ten. The only people that like this type of music are annoying "scene kidz" that ruin their hair with random colors and can often be really ignorant. For most of the fans of this "band", if you don't like brokencyde or think they suck with valid reasons backing your opinion, they will just throw swear words at you without thinking of proper grammar, vocabulary, spelling or valid reasoning. It is clear ...more

Do not get me started on these guys. They're far worse than the Jonas Brothers. And who put Cannibal Corpse, Megadeth, Metallica and Guns N' Roses over this? Anyone who hates those bands must die a painful death.

What is wrong with you people? Brokencyde is the best.Led zeppelin,Queen,The Beatles,Metallica and Iron Maiden should be higher than this legendary band.-Hippocrite

8 Naked Brothers Band

Yeah thanks for pioneering this whole "kids singing in the big music business instead of floating around Disney were they belong. " And why is Slipknot (23) only 6 bands behind you guys? I usually respect peoples opinions but really!? I don't get it, they're great.

I thought the show was disgusting from the start. Putting children out into a rough industry full of sex and drugs and trying to market them as legitimate? I was horrified to see in the show some refined old woman asking these stupid kids for autographs. Total fantasy... And seeing a seven-year-old in rocker clothes is scary.

WHAT THE HELL! I thought it was a DUMB show that was about a DUMB band but it was actually a real band? , THAT'S JUST MESSED UP - SmoothCriminal

Sounds disgusting

9 Big Time Rush

Worst band ever and on their T.V. show they act like they're 5 year olds.

I have a big time rush when I see them. A big time rush of VOMIT

Worst actors they can't even sing. This on of the worst mistakes in music history.

I used to love Big Time Rush when I was 7 because I was watching Spongebob, and there was a commercial that was just the music video of their song 24/7. Now I see that their songs are very lame. - lovefrombadlands

Yes that show was very lame, but here's a fun fact one of them went on to be on Celebrity Big Brother. - htoutlaws2012

10 Creed Creed Creed is an American rock band, formed in 1993 in Tallahassee, Florida. The band's best-known line-up consists of lead vocalist Scott Stapp, guitarist and vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips.

I heard Mark Tremonti, the guitarist of creed, along with their bassist and drummer formed a new band called Alter Bridge, replacing Scott with Myles Kennedy. I find Alter Bridge a bit better compared to Creed

The musicians are talented (especially the guitarist), but their singer is flat broke and hopeless.

The problem with Creed is that, while their drummer, guitarist, and bassist are great at their jobs (listen to My Sacrifice for proof), Scott Stapp is too whiny and pretentious. If anyone replaced Scott Stapp, it would be a better band.
Also, irrelevant: How the hell is Led Zeppelin on this list?

Stapp's enunciation is so awful, specifically during the choruses of Creed's two biggest hits. - SamanthaW

The Contenders

11 Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit is an American nu metal band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 1994. Their lineup consists of Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and Wes Borland.

In reality they aren't the worst, rollin and break stuff are alright, but the rest of there stuff is over-the-top crap, fred durst is an obnoxious idiot who loves attention, like I said there are worse, but these guys are why people hate nu metal

What? You call their musics as art? It's more like a full of piece of crap. They don't even deserve the title as the best Metal band. I would rather listen to Linkin Park, Five Finger Death Punch, Avenged Sevenfold, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Three Days Grace, and Dead by Sunrise, these bands create REAL music, which is I call "ART".

Limp Bizkit is actually really good. They get way more hate than they deserve just like Nickleback. Sure Fred Durst can be a little annoying but I got used to it in time. Their music in my opinion is pretty good. The only people that don't like them are people that don't believe rap and rock should mix. Also it gets pretty annoying when people compare them to other bands like Metallica. They are 2 different bands and are not similar whatsoever. -_-

When I was younger, I used to like Limp Bizkit, but I realise I was wrong! Now I realise that their songs are like a disease, they make you vomit and cause you a general feeling of unpleasantness!
Limp Bizkit are pure garbage, I'm really glad they're forgotten!

12 LMFAO LMFAO LMFAO was an American hip hop-electronic dance music duo consisting of uncle and nephew Redfoo and SkyBlu.

They are the suckiest band ever. It is impossible to describe in words how crappy this band is. To start, HOW IS LMFAO NOT ON HERE BUT THE BEATLES ARE? And also, I don't know how Party Rock Anthem ever became famous. It is so bloody catchy yet the worst song ever!

Hey... I liked party rock anthem. And then I saw what LMFAO meant. And then I was like, "nevermind." - DJCosmic

They should be number 1 because they are so annoying and they think that they are all that and they think that life is just about partying they should all drop dead right now

The fact they're not in the top ten destroys my faith in humanity. They're not sexy an they do know it.

How is Big Time Rush, just T.V. series band higher than this? - DaisyandRosalina

13 R5 R5 R5 is an American pop rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 2009. The band consists of lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Ross Lynch, Riker Lynch, Rocky Lynch, Rydel Lynch, and Ellington Ratliff.

I hate this band. They are so stupid and their songs have no depth to them. They are all about how cool they are or how the world revolves around them. I know two kids who LIKE this horrible excuse for a group. And they are guys, my age. Its because their parents are super Christian and limit to Christian and REALLY CHEESY pop music, like this. And since they don't know what real music or real talent is, they hate it when I show them real stuff.

Bottom line is, R5 is the worst band I have ever come in contact with, and I hate Ross Lynch the most out of them. As a solo artist, he sucks and has no depth or reality to his music at all (I died of laughter when I heard "I got that rock and roll! "). What a joke. And when he's in a band, he manages crap like "Come on, get loud! ".

R5 is a joke. Get them out before the Musical Depression gets worse

Oh, fangirls. Just stop. We are allowed to hate any band we want. You said one direction is untalented, and people like them (I don't know why), but we feel the same way about R5. Everyone has different perceptions of what talent is, and to me, talent is writing music about things other than just love songs, and actually singing without so much autotune. I know you like R5 and I respect that, but stop telling us that WE have to like R5 when we don't. I did give them a chance, I listened to an entire album by them, and I hated it. Please, like R5 if you want, but stop being so arrogant and uptight when people say they don't. It's close minded people like you that make me fear for the next generation. Are you going to verbally lambast people because of their political and religious views? Probably, if you make this big of a deal out of musical taste.

I agree with your argument but I find one direction made the first statement confusing.

They're amazing. people say they can't play instruments but other bands just dance and sing. If you really took the time to learn more about the band and get to know them you would see that they write pretty much all of their songs, they actually can sing and dance. they're really sweet, funny, and talented. you can't judge them because they're a "Disney band." sure ross acted on there, but that does not mean they're a Disney band. they work really hard to make fans happy, to make concerts exciting, and to let people have an amazing day. I have met them 4 times and every single time was amazing. they put on a good show and it is worth it. none of the people being negative have actually payed attention to them. so listen to their songs again, watch interviews/meet and greet videos, concert videos and anything else. you honestly will love them.

R5 is not even talented. They are famous for nothing. I can't stand their songs, all they ever sing is about love or going out and partying like a bunch of monkey and wild animals. - Marine_Soldier

14 Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides is an American rock band currently consisting of Andy Biersack (vocals), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (guitar), Christian Coma (drums) and Ashley Purdy (bass), that formed in 2006 in Ohio. more.

You know, I wouldn't hate this band as much as I do if it weren't for their fans. I go to school with tons of these people, and they truly believe that Black Veil Brides is better than Led Zeppelin. If that's not enough, they don't shut the hell up about how it "saved their lives" or "stopped them from cutting"

Guys. BVB does NOT promote cutting. In fact, Ashley Purdy has said many anti suicidal quotes, such as " Suicide is not cowardly. I'll tell you what's cowardly, treating people so badly that they want to die.". Sure, the fans are annoying, but tell me how The Wanted are less hated than BVB. The band doesn't go around telling their fans to tell everyone about their lifesaving experience with them, they do it on their own, so that is hereby not BvB's fault. I'm not trying to be a troll or anything, I just don't get how you blame the fans actions on the band. Some of the fans are immature young girls, and they do that.

Andy definitely has talent, but he ultimately gives away any credibility he had by developing his music around a fan base of complete mouth breathers. You know what I'm talking about. The emo kids that listen to this. I'd say as far as their music, they're generic Metalcore/glam metal. They take 'influence' from Kiss and Motley Crue, and you can obviously confirm that. I don't think they are the worst thing ever created in music, but their music isn't all that great. Andy has a nice voice, but that's about it.

Their music isn't good and their fans wont shut the hell up

15 Anal C*** Anal C*** Anal C*** was an American grindcore band founded by vocalist Seth Putnam in 1988. The band is known for their highly offensive lyrics which included themes of misogyny, homophobia, racism, Nazism, antisemitism, and schadenfreude (ridicule of the unfortunate). Their music has been received negatively more.

Sorry, these are the two worst words ever coined to make a band name. Grindcore sucks anyways. Why would anyone name their band "Anal C***" in the first place?

This band was never meant to be taken seriously. They're all just a bunch of trolls who intentionally sound like garbage just to piss people off.

AxCx is the true worst band ever, intentionally so.

Most of the people who voted have probably never heard any of their music.

Their music isn't THAT bad but it always seem to relate to boys. Watch their music video and see for yourself: pretending your high school girls fanning over hot boys is not impressive. They seriously need to grow up...

Not just SNSD, but all the mainstream K-pop groups. I don't just hate them, I hate their fans too(most of them). - CrazeBoutMayday

17 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.

I'll admit, I used to really enjoy their music as a younger teen, but I've grown to share a different opinion. I don't think their music is terrible, but I find that it's nothing more than cookie-cutter Pop rock. It's rather on the boring side. Up until recently. Kings of Suburbia was actually a nice diverse change from the garbage cookie-cutter Pop rock. I liked the Synthpop sound. I still don't like Tokio Hotel, but they're not that bad. Yeah, Bill Kaulitz when he was younger dressed on the flamboyant side. Have you seen him now? I think this is one of those bands that just deserves the "I'll try it...Okay moving on." type of recognition. Brush it off if it's not your cup of tea.

Linkin park Here? come on! tokio hotel sucks, linkin park rocks!

I met this German guy once. He said that "tokio hotel is not music"

Dreadful band. They're the German equivalent to Linkin Park, but at least they actually try when they make their songs. If you want a gothic band, go listen to My Chemical Romance or something. - Swellow

19 Attila Attila Attila is an American metalcore band from Atlanta, Georgia, formed in 2005. Frontman Chris Fronzak started the band in high school and, not wanting to use typical death metal terms, adopted the name from Attila the Hun, which he came across in a book.

They're a wannabe Limp Bizkit with a hint of Asking Alexandria and lyrics so bad that they can rival the lyrics of Blood On The Dance Floor.

Attila is a generic copy of every thrash metal band ever. Their lyrics suck too.

The singer has awful vocals and the screaming gives me a headache, Payback is one of the worst songs ever. Honestly, if BrokenCyde tried becoming metal, this would be it. - AnimeDrawer

20 The Wanted The Wanted The Wanted are a British-Irish boy band consisting of members Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes.

They can't sing, they can't dance, and they have a terrible fan base. They're songs have no meaning. Who likes a girl because of how she walks? No one exactly. They are very annoying and not good looking Nathan is ok but I can't stand looking at the rest of them.

This band has songs that I've heard on the radio before, but they have like no fan base and it seems as though no one really cares about them. Also, walks like Rihanna is a really stupid song. They are much worse than black veil brides and might be as bad as one direction.

They can't even sing their song are good but they just shouldn't sing them they should be number 1 on the list.

I only like that song I don't know the name of...the sun goes down, the stars go up, my universe will never be the same, I'm glad you came. Sorry if that's the wrong words but can someone tell me what song that is? - lovefrombadlands

21 Maroon 5 Maroon 5 Maroon 5 is an American pop rock band that originated in Los Angeles, California. Before the current group was established, the original four members, Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick, formed a band known as Kara's Flowers in 1994, while they were still in high school.

They were a real good rock band when they were still "Kara's Flower" and at their debut album "Songs About Jane (Their ONLY best)", but gosh they slowly turn to mainstream pop and becoming Adam Levine's show. Their second and third album are disappointing, but Overexposed has too-much-oversold singles and their most annoying one.

I loved this band. I really did. Their songs brought back so many memories of my childhood and it was just so unbearable to see them become. I loved, and still do love songs like Makes Me Wonder, She Will Be Loved, Harder to Breathe, I Won't Go Home Without You, Wake Up Call, and of course, the first Maroon 5 song I've ever heard, Sunday Morning. I even liked a couple of songs off of Hands All Over like I'm Never Gonna Leave This Bed and Give a Little More. Misery was alright but was a really poppy. Then Moves Like Jagger came out. It was a good song from the beginning but it was so damn overplayed to the point where it annoyed the hell outta me. Then came Overexposed. This album SUCKS! Starting with this album, they were less of a "band" and more of a tool for Adam Levine's "solo" career. They were the biggest sellout for me because they were so good but then became. Then came V. It had some of the most unbearable songs like Maps, Sugar, This Summer's gonna Hurt, ...more

This is one band which turned good to bad, and bad to worse... There was a time when I used to LIKE the band, NOT ANY MORE... - manavrai92

I really like Maroon 5, but I agree with my favorite youtuber, ARTV, because they should be called The Adam Levine Experience. I feel like the band would be the same if it was only Adam Levine. I still really like their music, though. - lovefrombadlands

22 5 Seconds of Summer 5 Seconds of Summer 5 Seconds of Summer are an Australian pop-rock band from Sydney that formed in 2011. The group were originally YouTube celebrities, posting videos of themselves covering songs from various artists during 2011 and early 2012. They rose to international fame while touring with One Direction on the Take more.

I find it annoying that some people who listen to 5sos think they are so "punk rock" for listening to this band. Some of the fans claim that it is just a joke between them to call them punk, but many of the fans legitimately think they are punk pop or punk rock. Just because 5sos plays instruments and one has a piercing and another colored hair, doesn't mean they are punk. They are basically your average boy band with instruments. They are power pop, not rock. Punk is the clash, sex pistols, bad religion etc., not 5 seconds. Like I said before, this band is just a boy band with instruments, so they are not a good band at all.

STOP THEY don't EVEN KNOW WHAT PUNK IS, I just feel like they're posers. Like they're different than any other boy band that only appeals to thirsty teenage girls & is famous for no reason. All it does is make those girls define themselves as punk also. Stop. Just because you listen to all 5sos songs and one Green Day song and wear a nirvana shirt when you know one song of theirs at the most... You're NOT PUNK you're FAKE JUST LIKE THE BAND (sorry rant over.

WORDS CANNOT DESCRIBE MY HATRED TO THIS BAND! Anyway, not only are they homophobic, transphobic, and sexist idiots who think the work revolves around them, they make completely unoriginal content that rip off other bands like FOB, Duran Duran, and My Chemical Romance! It's also super annoying that they decide to add and electric guitar and some drums and all of a sudden they're "punk-rock"! I think this band is about as "punk-rock" as the pop tart I ate this morning. It's also super annoying that people think their "edgy" and listen to this! And also the thing that REALLY pisses me off is that FALL OUT BOY, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, AND BLACK VEIL BRIDES ARE CONSIDERED WORSE THAN THIS "BAND". Ok, now that I'm done ranting, why are you still reading this?

Unlike 1D, 5SOS are a legitimately terrible band. - SamanthaW

All of their songs are the same. They mean nothing, and some of the tunes are plain annoying.

This band is awesome

I agree. Why do people hate on them so much? They're one of the calmest, most relaxed bands I've ever listened to.

U2 is awesome. Whoever put it on this list is either deaf or an idiot

Why does everyone hate U2? Or rather, why do people hate on Bono? U2 is a great band, I love their song, "Sunday, bloody sunday". I don't understand why people HATE U2, Even though they are one of the greatest bands I know. If you want to hate an overrated band, Hate Green Day... They're a band that's WAY overplayed, I'm listening to them right now! Green Day should be at least on the top 20.

Classic case of band (or performer in general) using "edgy" attitude to distract from lack of even the most rudimentary musical talent. all they ever did was act macho in the fact of the comparatively friendly "hair metal" scene. honestly, to call Axl Rose a bastard would be an insult to the bastards.

Every time Axl Rose sings I want to hang myself. It sounds like slash was giving him the what for and a microphone was coincidentally right next to his face. His voice sounds like a broken car horn. Their lyrics are terrible too. The only one with talent was Slash, but it still sounds terrible. Guns N Roses is beyond terrible. I can't believe people listen to that garbage. Not to mention how big of a douchebag Axl Rose is.

I just listened to this... Just sounds like a girl who is screaming... Or being brutally murdered. It sucks... It even gave me a headache...

I listened to this and I'M GLAD THEY STOPPED MAKING MUSIC. I don't get what people see in them. There are so many artists with talent who don't make it into the industry, and then THESE PEOPLE make it.

Disgrace to screaming music

I decided to listen to this and I regret it. It is nothing but random noises and a girl screaming. I think this is the worst musical artist ever, even worse than the likes of Justin Beiber and botdf.

28 Green Day Green Day Green Day are an American pop punk and alternative rock band formed in East Bay, California in 1987. The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar) . Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative rock. Some more.

Green Day doesn't suck. It's the fans arguing that makes everyone think that the band sucks. The people who liked Green Day when they played at Gilman and made Kerplunk/1039/Dookie just listen to those albums and the people who like 21st Century Breakdown and American Idiot just listen to those. If you like all of their albums, listen to all of their albums. If you hate it, don't waste your time hating on it and if you like Green Day, listen to them as much as you like. As much as people say Green Day is for posers, well your only acting like a poser for following that so called "Cool" kid that says that they suck. Green Day was never "punk" and there's no reason to hate on them for that. If you're gonna be here to complain that Green Day used to be "punk" and you're hating on them for becoming "sellouts" then go listen to what you consider punk. It doesn't really matter. Green Day fans can listen to Green Day, and if you don't really take an interest in them then just go take your ...more

Thank you! Finally somebody has written a reasonable explanation for haters and posers! Personally, I love Green Day, and I love all their albums. I used to hate on bands like 1D and The Wanted, but over these past few months I have changed my opinions about music; people have the right to listen to what they want. When I see someone insulting a band, I usually leave a comment saying "Please respect others" or something like that. Thank you for this post - georgielikesgreenday

Green Day is an amazing band. They have very good music and their album "American Idiot" was very good. I don't think they should be on this list.

There is no reason Green Day should be on this list. Dookie is one of the best albums ever, my favorite is When I come around and Longview, Welcome to paradise is great, so is Pulling Teeth. My point is, I love Green Day and I completely disagree with their placement on this list.

I despise Green Day, but I'm okay with the fans who know they are not punk. - SamanthaW

29 Butthole Surfers Butthole Surfers Butthole Surfers is an American rock band formed by Gibby Haynes and Paul Leary in San Antonio, Texas in 1981.

One of the most respected punk rock bands of all time, everyone who voted hasn't listened to them.

I am not a fan of this band's music, but I will say that they are a pretty good band. Before you vote for this band because of their name, listen to a few of their songs.

I know where I'm planning my next surfing trip ;) -Jason Bauer

Good band, but oh god that name. - DJCosmic

I can't believe I actually liked them, their music was just awful. I guess that now that I'm older and wiser, it seems that I now realise how terrible they actually were. In fact, out of all their songs, She makes me wanna is the WORST song I've ever listened to by them. It's nothing special - just cheesy, teen-pop bullcrap. I'm betting that in 2-5 years time, they'll just fade away into obscurity and be forgotten about by everyone who liked them, and all their members who'll have solo careers will flop after just one crap song and an album that will never get released, and no-one will even remember their names.

I hate them so much. They're annoying as hell and they can't sing at all. I can't believe that real musicians and true artists are being ignored while crap like this is getting all the fame. Its not fair.

A girl I knew in school loved JLS and once played a series of their songs. They all sounded pretty much the same. - PositronWildhawk

31 Florida Georgia Line

Oh my God. This band is why we can't have nice things.

Country has gone WAY downhill since the 80's! This is basically a failed attempt to play modern rock, with some idiot with a fake country accent singing about beer, or pickup trucks, or women the obsess over, true country still exists, but almost no young person (I'm one of the exceptions) knows what is... You can still stream Johnny cash on spotify, you can listen to willie nelson on pandora, or whatever app you use heck, you can even download their music if you want! Florida Georgia line is one of the most discusting attempts at music ever

I think all Country in general is terrible, but this is just a complete abomination. I heard "Get Your Shine On" in a music compilation on YouTube, and... my ears tried to commit suicide. NO talent. NO rhythm. NO substance. Complete garbage. Period.

Florida Georgia Line are just one of the many reasons why country music has such a bad reputation. - SamanthaW

32 Fun. Fun. Fun is an American indie pop band based in New York City. It was formed by Nate Ruess, former lead singer of The Format, with Andrew Dost of Anathallo and Jack Antonoff of Steel Train.

Stupid hipster garbage. This band is the epitome of hipster bull. They only got popular because of Glee, and all of their songs pretty much sound the same. Some Nights put me to sleep with that horrible marching band beat. We Are Young... It's a song about a guy who's ABUSIVE. He admitted to hitting his lover "that was waiting across the bar". I would rather listen to the sounds of animals mating. Screw these hipster bastards.

Indescribably bad. How these Auto-Tuned, Z-grade Queen rip-offs haven't even made the list is well beyond me.

And their name sucks too! If you say you hate fun and people don't know you're talking about the band, well, there yo go!

They're generic but relatively bearable. - SamanthaW

33 Backstreet Boys Backstreet Boys

There a boy band just like any other. There success is due to the fact. That young girls of the late 90s early 2000s found them hot cute sexy etc. There songs have on meaning no matter if their fans think they do. Unlike what the person said in the one direction one Backstreet Boys are not a real band they were created by a pedophile named Lou Pearlmen. They have no real talent either.

Nope not good it's a good thing they are on this list.

Tell me why they are nothing but a mistake. Tell me why. They have no talent, and they're boring. Tell me why. Oh that's right. Because they'e a boy-band. Next!

They didn't even write their own songs

34 'N Sync

NSYNC was good. Along with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, this is a very rare GOOD boy band. - PizzaGuy

One of the very few boy bands I could stand. If if weren't for them, we wouldn't have Justin Timberlake

Not true. They are the only boy band that has real music, like, ever.

What about The Beatles? Or The Rolling Stones? Technically, those were boy bands.

It's kind of tiring to tell you why I hate boy-bands. This boy-band was essentially One Direction but in the 90's. If you hate One Direction, then you would have hated N*S YNC too. They clearly have no talent. Justin Timberlake is a fraud. Bye Bye Bye should have been the one hit wonder they deserved, and then they should have faded away into obscurity. Because nobody cares.

35 My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.

The Hell is wrong with whoever put this on, My Chemical Romance is a great band that helped get me through my depression

My Chemical Romance is actually, really good. If you'd listen to songs like "Skylines and Turnstiles" or "Our Lady of Sorrows", you might really like them. They're labelled as emo, when in reality they sound nothing like other emo bands. (Black Veil Brides, Blood on the Dance Floor, Falling in Reverse, etc. ) Most people judge before they listen, but don't be that guy, My Chemical Romance is a good band.

Oh. My. God! You can't be serious. Just because they're a punk band doesn't mean you can put them on the list. Have you heard the song Teenagers or Helena or t the end or mama?

Then you must have a bad taste in hearing. My Chemical Romance is a band that actually worked hard and did things right. You could tell they weren't some stupid boy band. No, they were rock. And their songs made me have faith in music today, and now they inspire newer rock bands that are great like All Time Low. So overall, My Chemical Romance is amazing and your argument is invalid. - MontyPython

If u disagree with me your edgy, if you talk smack about my favorite rapper then come to my hood and you wont be talking at all - hiphopgod

37 Cobra Starship

Cobra Starship is not only the worst title for a band ever, but I seriously believe that they are equivalent to Punk-goes-pop it's HORRIBLE. Seriously, why would you ever make music, Cobra Starship? You should probably stop making music. You only have ten fans, and they'll live if you break up because you're probably NOBODY'S favorite band. Stop. Making. Music.

I only like one of their songs, and that's because of the Nostalgia surrounding it, not even the quality of the song. Otherwise they're awful. - Elijah_Cook

Worst song title ever

Garbage. I heard "Good Girls Go Bad" and I just completely face-palmed.

38 ABBA ABBA ABBA were a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972 by members Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

What the heck! Was this person on high drugs when they put this on?!?

Abba are a million times better than any of the no talent losers on this site! They have actual music talent and can play instruments and sing. Heaven forbid!

Why is Abba on this list! I'm just shocked! They are my favourite music group! They always worked hard and they were either in their studio or performing. They never gave up and were proud to work together! Seriously, they don't deserve a place on this list at all and most of their songs don't suck!

39 Falling In Reverse Falling In Reverse Falling in Reverse is an American post hardcore band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2008, signed to Epitaph Records.

I honestly like this band a lot, but the album, Fashionably Late, suck! That album is literally just "the Ronnie Radke album" I rarely hear the rest of the band in that album! Also WHO WAS THE IDIOT THAT SAID "HEY RONNIE, MAYBE YOU SHOULD RAP! " DOES HE ACTUALLY THINK HE CAN RAP? But in all honesty, the band isn't that bad!

His voice is on par with Axl Rose, that being said, I think Guns N' Roses is almost unlistenable, at least they have slash, what does Falling In Reverse have? I'll tell you what they have, a cover of Gangsta's Paradise that makes me want to shoot myself

They actually had a very talented lead guitarist. But thankfully he left to join a Heavy Metal band (not metalcore) named Cry Venom where he could shred all he wants. Check them out, his new band is actually very good. - Plonderss

Can we just not care about the band members and just appreciate the music? And even if we are talking about the members, have you not heard Jacky Vincent's guitar skills?

I have nothing but hatred for this band. If you want post-hardcore, listen to Pierce the Veil, Sleeping with Sirens, Dance Gavin Dance, Emarosa or Circa Survive. - Elijah_Cook

bad mainstream rock that's incredibly repetitive and dull. The guy can't sing. He makes music that has no substance. There's not much to say other than "Run, Forest, Run! "

Can't come up with a good name so just use his last name. Ego much?

41 Cannibal Corpse Cannibal Corpse Cannibal Corpse is a American death metal band from Buffalo, New York, formed in 1988. The band is known for their graphic album covers, explicitly violent lyrics and song titles like "I C** Blood" The group got into mainstream after performing the song "Hammer Smashed Face" in the 1994 film Ace Ventura: more.

Horrible, gore-obsessed band that gives heavy metal a bad name. They try too hard to be shocking and as a result they sound over the top and pathetic. Just read their lyrics, they're so filthy and meaningless that it is makes you want to vomit but at the same time pity them for having the imagination of an angry 10-year old. A detestable band.

Yeah don't be a 13 year old guy who thinks he's Edgy and hard by listening to crap like this and listen to true metal like Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and the great Metallica - InsertCleverName

Cannibal Corpse are the most shameful band to have ever existed. Their album art is disgracefully wrong on every level, their lyrics are borderline tasteless and explore subjects that are way out of line, they can't even play instruments properly, the production is massively rushed, the vocals are incomprehensible screeches. They make nothing but noise, noise and more noise. The people who like them have no ability to understand all of this, and it's concerning.

I don't like Cannibal Corpse but if you seriously think they can't play their instruments you obviously know absolutely nothing about music, their bassist is incredible

Music doesn't get much worse than cannibal corpse... Ugh awful band, worst band ever, PERIOD. I hate them so much X(

This is a response to the last response-most pop there are some singers that have great emotion and not plain generic

Hate them, and I'm a metalhead. - Elijah_Cook

Beasties RULE fools!

The Beastie Boys are just from a different era of hip hop in the late 80's so their sound is a lot different.

43 The Pussycat Dolls

So the pussycat dolls are better than U2, Linkin Park, Green Day and Nirvana? Who's voting on this list? These are 4 brilliant bands and Fall out boy and Goo Goo dolls aren't far behind. On the other hand there are the Pussycat Dolls. Is it just me or is Nicole Scherzinger (by the way the worlds most annoying person as we found out from x factor) the only one who sings whilst the others just dance around in the background, trying to look pretty? Don't cha is probably their best song and it does my head in - only fit for one of those seriously cheesy school discos.

Yeah goo goo dolls, oh come on give me a break, I'd rather lock myself in a cabin and listen to Nirvana, Linkin Park, and Green Day.

OK so the title kind of gives the IDEA of how bad that

When I grow up, I want to get brain surgery, I want to kill frogs, I want to be a star, I want to puke at how disgusting the lyrics are for these whores. Their music is obviously terrible. Nicole needs to stick to what's she's good at. And that's walking the street. This music is... No.

44 Bastille Bastille Bastille are an English indie pop band formed in 2010. The group began as a solo project by singer Dan Smith, who later decided to form a band. Beside Smith, the four-piece consists of Chris Wood, Will Farquarson, and Kyle Simmons.

How can Bastille be in this list they are amazing! The only song you've probably heard is pompeii. Before you hate you should listen to other songs like flaws and daniel in the den.

Ugh, I hate when people judge a band by their one hit. "Coldplay is bad because I don't like Sky Full of Stars." "Queen is bad because I don't like We Will Rock You." I completely agree, don't hate until you know something about what you're hating. - pandagirl

Bastille is a really good band! Why I wrong with you people! Pompeii got overplayed I will say that but other than that they have awesome music! They have amazing lyrics, cool music, and their lead singer has a really good voice!

Bastille is actually really good!

Bastille has one of the most insightful lyrics of all rock bands - weatherman419

45 Fifth Harmony Fifth Harmony Fifth Harmony is an American girl group based in Miami, composed of Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, Lauren Jauregui, and previously, Camila Cabello until her departure from the group on December 18, 2016. The group signed a joint record deal with Simon Cowell's label Syco Records and L.A.

There is no worse band out there than Fifth Harmony. Their music makes me sick. I can't believe these annoying screaming girls are "better" than incredible bands like OneRepublic, Coldplay, Green Day or even Maroon 5.

Fifth Harmony: absolutely terrible! Their songs are about sex and stuff like that, and their fanbase is basically 10 year old girls that think they're better than anyone else! Like, seriously I don't feel like commenting anymore, but I have to share my hatred to that band because THEY SUCK!

They can't dance and their songs are incredibly annoying. How Green Day is in the top 20 I'll never know.

Take 3 good girl groups, The Saturdays, Destiny's Child, little mix and mash them all together.

46 Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping with Sirens is an American Rock band from Orlando Florida. The band formed in 2009. SWS lead singer is Kellin Quinn

Once upon a time I went through and Emo phase, and during that time I liked bands like Black Veil Brides, Asking Alexandria and Bring Me the Horizon. Even back then I didn't like SWS, I always found Kellin Quinn's voice overly high pitched and the instrumentals were pretty mediocre at best. I used to like the song "King For a Day" But looking back it now, I have no idea how I enjoyed that song. It was awful, so high pitched and those instrumentals didn't help either. The fact that these people call this band (and other Emo bands) "metal" disgusts me. Metal is Metallica, Black Sabbath, hell, even Marilyn-Manson is more metal then this emo cramp.

This band is completely, and utterly, terrible. They sound like dying cats in an alleyway. Kellin Quinn's voice is so high, that if he were a mile away, you'd know he was coming. The guitarists are average at best, and theirs songs try to be "heartfelt", but in the end, they sound poorly. The only people who could ever enjoy this would be emo teenagers who sit in their parents' basement and puff on that bong that they stole from their parent's bedroom in the first place. Enough said. It's garbage.

They are an amazing band! It's just a band name!

They're great, but even though I'm a fan I still find their main fanbase SUPER annoying! - Elijah_Cook

The vast majority of their fanbase are emotionally unstable Emo teenagers that think screamo is heavy metal. Ask someone over the age of 20 who likes Metallica/Black Sabbath/etc their thoughts on this band. They'll either say the haven't heard of them, or they'll say they don't like them.

Terrible Metalcore for emo and scene kids. All of their songs are AWFUL. I listened to "Not The American Average" in a Walmart once, and turned to my best friend and said, "What is this abomination? " I hated it. Still hate it. They have no talent. They also rip off a lot of guitar riffs.

Yes! I'm so glad it's on here. All they ever do is sing about disgusting stuff and look down on religion. They are so arrogant and have such big egos. They think they can get all the girls in the world. As if.. They are nowhere near being panty-droppers..

They're not bad. Their last 3 albums are great, just ignore their first two except that one good track on Stand Up and Scream, "A Candlelit Dinner". Five Finger Death Punch is way worse. - Elijah_Cook
