Top Ten Worst Bands Ever

The Contenders: Page 2

21 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 ...read 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?

This is the worst "punk" band ever. These guys are just wannabes of Blink-182 and Green Day, but their music is too cheesy and pop to be punk. They are also only famous for their looks. I listened to one of their songs and they sound nothing punk. - AnimeDrawer

22 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.

They are like if My Chemical Romance had a baby with Metallica but the baby was extremely deformed

Wasn't the lead singer on a Sleeping with Sirens track? I don't know. All that I know is *YAWN*.

23 U2 U2 U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin. Formed in 1976, the group consists of Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr. U2's early sound was rooted in post-punk but eventually grew to incorporate influences from many genres of popular music. Throughout the group's musical pursuits, they have ...read more.

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.

Bono is suporting mosnian mislim terrorist group call mujahedins!

24 3OH!3

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

Deep lyrics, interesting sounds and talent. You will not find any of these three things with this musical group.

They just suck... I think they are the worst thing that ever happened to mainstream music, after Justin Bieber.

bad Electropop for scene kids and people who think that talking about sex, partying, drugs, and referencing pop culture is "deep". It's about as deep as my bathtub.

25 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

WHAT THE HELL? My Chemical Romance IS SO GOOD!

26 Guns N Roses Guns N Roses Guns N' Roses is an American hard rock band from Los Angeles formed in 1985. The classic lineup, as signed to Geffen Records in 1986, consisted of vocalist Axl Rose, lead guitarist Slash, rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin, bassist Duff McKagan, and drummer Steven Adler. Apart from hard rock they are also ...read more.

The original Guns N Roses was great, but now the only one left from the original line-up is Axl. Shudders

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 have never understood the popularity and respect that Guns N Roses gets. Sweet Child o' Mine is objectively terrible and most of their other songs are completely unmemorable, sound the same, and drag on for way to long.

I hate the music and they think there all cool

I hate selena... She was never supposed to become singer.. Oh sorry correction her deserve to become a singer.. this band makes the worst possible songs ever... I love you like a love song yeah seriously?

She is overrated can;t sing can't act. She latches onto other famous people for fame cause she has no talent.

Wait, Selena Gomez has her own band? What? How? She can't even sing, why her own band? - AnimeDrawer

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 ...read 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.

Woah what, green day, there a great band - VideoGamefan5

29 Metallica Metallica Metallica is an American Thrash Metal band formed in 1981 . The original lineup was James Hetfield (Vocalist and Rhythm guitarist), Dave Mustaine (Lead Guitar), Lars Ulrich (Drums), Ron McGovney (Bassist). The group came into mainstream from their Self-Titled album and the hit single "Enter Sandman". ...read more.

Metallica is a great band. They have made great albums like ride the lightning and master of puppets for example. One thing that I would like to point out is that Metallica did not sell out. Just because a band changes their sound does not mean that they sold out. Sometimes as bands get older, they mature and make music that is not as hard as the previous stuff. Also, many bands will experiment with different sounds, which may result in a more radio-friendly sound; many bands do it not so it will appeal to more people, but so it has the potential to sound better. Just because deftones released the album white pony, which was much easier to listen to and softer than their previous album does it mean they sold out? No, they were just trying new things, which is exactly what Metallica did with the black album. Also, the black album was still a hard rock album, Metallica did not start making pop rock/pop music/glam metal, so they didn't sell out. Also, the black album is not a bad album ...more

Best metal band ever- people are completely insane for voting them worst band!

Metallica is the best metal band out there!

Metallica is one of the greatest bands. Who ever put this on the list is an idiot.

30 '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.

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

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.

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

I have no clue what this band is, but judging by the name, it's definitely not good! Like, who was the idiot that said "Hey I got a perfect idea for our band name! Let's name it Butthole Surfers! Like seriously?

As soon as I saw the name I burst out laughing! 😂😂😂😂😂

32 JLS

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

Don't know... don't care.

33 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 basically wussified rock and now people think this and imagine dragons are rock.

34 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!

YES I'VE BEEN HATING ON THEM FOR SO LONG

35 Hello Kitty Suicide Club

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.

What this band is amazing. They put so much emotion into their songs. Iris is my favourite song. Disappointed in this list.

Iris is amazing! And why are the Beatles here?

37 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.

38 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.

Worst song title ever

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

Blink-182 and Green Day ahead of this? GJ, Internet.

39 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!

A band of swedish asses

40 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.

Hillbillies worsened the world big time. Florida Georgia Line is no exception. Sure, Nickelback's songs sound consistent, but they are talented non-hillbillies.
