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 ...read 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...

You know something? 1D ripped off Baba O Riley from The Who to make that stupid song Best Song Ever. Luckily they got sued, but fangirls, guess what, said: "THAT Is NO TRU 1D IS DA BEST THEY NEVER RIP OFF ANYTHINGGG! 111! ". Fangirls always defend them, no matter what, even if they do something bad like ripping off others.
God, I was so happy when Zayn left the band...

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. ...read 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 hate 1D, but this band is worse. - lovefrombadlands

3 Jonas Brothers Jonas Brothers

HOW CAN ANYONE DISLIKE QUEEN, LED ZEPPELIN, GUNS N ROSES, PINK FLOYD, THE BEATLES, AC/DC, BLACK SABBATH, THE POLICE, AND RUSH? THESE GUYS ARE LEGENDS OF ROCK N ROLL! EVERYONE THAT I KNOW HATES THE JONAS BROTHERS AND OTHERS TERRIBLE BANDS ON THIS LISTS, BUT THEY LIKE THE ROCK LEGENDS.

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?

Their "music" sounds like cringy pop music straight out of Disney. enough' said.

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.

Their music sucks, every song sucks, all the songs sound the same, chad's AUTOTUNED voice looks like he is being stabed in the back, and they only tune all the way down with no solos or interludes.

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. ...read 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

Both terrifying and talent-less.

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?

Those jerks need to retire someday. This song ruining thing is really ridiculous. When will they retire? They steal good and bad songs and change the damn lyrics when they're fine just the way they are. If they don't retire by the time I turn 30, then I'm going on strike! Who's with me!

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.

Anyone that was in High School in the late 2000's and went to a predominantly white school probably remembers this crappy band. All the conformist scene kids with their trendy hot topic uniforms thought it was edgy to listen to terrible music

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

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.

Take that back! BTR are awesome :(

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?

This band's song Higher was used in the trailer for the Don Bluth movie Titan AE. Don Bluth, FYI, was the John Lasseter of the 1980s, famous for directing animated movies in competition with Disney, his most successful being The Land Before Time. So, after Higher was used in the Titan AE trailer, the movie was a box office flop, and it was the last movie Don Bluth would ever make. So, are you wondering why you haven't heard of your childhood hero, director of classics such as The Land Before Time, An American Tail, and The Secret of NIMH in a long time? Because Creed was so terrible, they singlehandedly ended a legendary animator's career. Let that sink in.

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. -_-

Am I the only person shocked that lil pump isn’t on this list?

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.

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.

15 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. ...read 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

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

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?

OH LOOK HE HAS A PIERCING AND COLORFUL HAIR, THEY PLAY INSTRUMENTS THEY ARE SO PUNK ROCK.

A load of pointless techno nonsense for nutcases who've never heard a good song in their lives. Anybody ever heard 'My Humps'? Possibly one of the worst songs in history, next to 'Friday', 'Baby' and 'What Makes You Beautiful'. - sameera62

Everyone should hate them, they are killing MUSIC

THEY SUCK! They copy almost every single classic rock group (Dick Dale, just to name one) and turns into stupid auto-tuned rap bullcrap.

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
