Worst Electronic Music ArtistsSelfDestruct
The Top Ten
I knew someone who'd been around 'Skrillex' (he wasn't called that at the time) when he was a punk dweeb on the Warped tour some years back. This friend stated that you DID NOT want to have an original idea around him...because he'd steal it! I buy that assessment, given that everything he does sounds like the same mess rehashed, and most anything you hear out of him can be traced back to some earlier techno source. No talent + money = success? It shouldn't.
Hey all the haters if you hate Skrillex no problem I have a challenge open your computer download a DAW and make a song. - Ankush12
Skrillex deserves a high spot on this list, but deadmau5 is amazing. Come on, man. - PositronWildhawk
Hey this guy is good.He is not the best but he has some good songs-TheCoolGuy1V 18 Comments
At least Avicii and David Guetta are taking music seriously. All Chainsmokers do is make jokes songs.
For the record Selfie is THE WORST song on earth.
Watch "how every chainsmokers song is made" on youtube. It exposes them for the talentless losers they are.
Selfie is the worst song yes, but the rest of their songs are so much better. Listen to Roses, New York City, etc., you won't regret it.
Their best music came after Selfie and before Don't let me Down. There are also some good tracks on their album they released this year. Listen to "Don't Say" and "It Won't Kill Ya". You won't regret. There is much worse music around these days, and I'm glad these guys are mainstream. I'd much much much rather hear a Chainsmokers song than one of those god-awful new Taylor Swift songs. - Elijah_CookV 12 Comments
Most of his songs are good, but some times he did not give credit to the singers of the song like Lay Me Down and Addicted to you... ,he thinks that the songs are good only because of him, not by singers!.. That I really don't like. - glambert
You have to be kidding. Avicii NUMBER 2. Tracks like Levels, Seek Bromance, I Could Be The One and Wake Me Up are all amazing. After he released True he did start to go downhill with track like Waiting For Love but no way is he number 2 worst - OrangeCookie
Avicii is basically pop that's been sneaked into the electronic list. - PositronWildhawk
I blame Avicii for bringing country into this.V 9 Comments
Are you serious? Knife Party is pretty awesome. Their songs are pretty cool. what I think that most people don't like about them is that some of their songs are really not that appropriate. Like "Internet Friends". I guess it is ok...but it is all like "You blocked me on Facebook, and now, your gonna die". It kinda freaked me out, and now, don't block people on Facebook.
This band is awesome - the_stig2
Get them off this list. Now - wrests
The heck Knife party is awesome. They are my favourite dubstep musicians and they are the only awesome dubstep artists that are kinda popular. Skrillex is not bad but he is overrated and he is not that good but not horrible. Bossfight and Dex Arson are also awesome but they aren't well known. Knife Party are the best Dubstep music artists.-TheCoolGuy1V 5 Comments
Not only bad music, also horrible people.
Not electronic really. I am an electronic music producer, and know what's electronic. They use cheap "dubstep" and "trap" beats but they are just stupid and pedophilic not electronic at all. - Elijah_Cook
How Skrillex is above these guys I'll never know.
These loons just ruined electronic music for me. - MChkflaguard_YtV 9 Comments
This has nothing to do with anything, but I like his cat. It looks soft. - RiverClanRocks
Ah, the days when he deserved to be as high as possible. - ProPanda
Good musician. - Elijah_Cook
Can Calvin Harris really be called a DJ anymore?
Now that his star has fallen so much that he is reduced to just being the opening act for Deadmau5 he qualifies to be on this list and is by far the worst at anything he does. Need I say more?
Why do you assume we are all "guys"? You must are a sexist.
Not electronic at all, just a fat low-quality rapper. - Elijah_Cook
Okay, U.O.E.N.O. was terrible, but... WHAT? - Zach808V 1 Comment
Many of the other bad ones here have been mere annoyances in the music industry and fodder for stereotypes at most, whereas this guy's practically killing a whole genre. We will NOT stand for this...get him to the top! - Entranced98
He destroyed House, at least we still have Trance.
Dude, this guy sucks the ass. Ugh, worse than Skrillex.
His musical quality has much improved in recent months. - Elijah_CookV 9 Comments
The whole Forza Horizon soundtrack is pure garbage. - SelfDestruct
He ain't Fresh! Enough Said...
Why is this sorry excuse for a DJ below F Buttons, who are awesome? - WonkeyDude98
The worst. Quite actually, the worst. - WonkeyDude98
He sucks, most of the time. - Elijah_Cook
Basically sex relayed stuff mixed with the WORST drops I've ever heard. Deserves #1 and there's no way anyone should listen to him without having a seizure...ughh - DankGodX
Blegh. I love dubstep. Borgore is not dubstep. Borgore is not music. - Elijah_CookV 1 Comment
One of their songs ruined Forza Horizon for me - SelfDestruct
No, they are great. - 445956
His next song, Temple, was a flop on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Charts. Thanks America
Also, Harlem Shake was a thing.
His songs are pretty annoying...take Harlem Shake as an example
People are most likely only voting this because of the explicit name. Surf Solar is a banger, and ya'll are huge prudes. - djpenquin999
I really don't get why they're so high.
How is he even on the the worst list, he is one of the best
People only hating cause they don't even understand his genre. *sigh* Oh well.
PositronWildhawk disapproves. - RiverClanRocks
This guy is good.He got me into house(the EDM genre)-TheCoolGuy1V 14 Comments
How can the godfather of dubstep be on here? - Elijah_Cook
This shouldn't be on here - BrotherOfWolves001
He's incredible and one of the most underrated singers out there! Fireflies is a good song! - Elijah_Cook
Hard to imagine anything worse than this "sound" which is really just "noise'
How and why is Kylie Minogue, who has a fantastic vocal ability, on this list? - mholland1997
Stupid song for all time in electro by his - belarbi
They're awesome! - Elijah_Cook
There monstercat releases where actually really good
Even after his past (and somehow big) career in 2014, this guy still doesn't get that making a slightly slower or faster version of his old beat is not going to make it different.
Like DoubleAgent said, "Every song of his is absolute garbage. Every. Single. One. I will not bring myself to enjoy one of the detestible, low quality, generic beats that this guy refers to as music."
Hip hop. Some of his beats are ok. - Elijah_Cook
MUSTARD ON THE BEAT HO - venomouskillingmachine
They left hardstyle and a lot of them don't like that change.
His music is just good enough said
No! Just...no! Marshmello is great! - Elijah_Cook
They are just blood on the dance floor 2.0 in think because they formed in 2006 whereas BOTDF formed in 2007 so I don't know which one is the main rip off I know both are terrible
I can't STOP
What is this? - JolteonIsAwesome
Lost my faith in humanity now because Dimitri Trash & Like Ass are not number 1 for Worst Edm Artists. - ShaunnyB0y
Daft Punk is the winner of the Best Album of the Year Grammy Award, and Get Lucky (though a little boring) is the Record of the Year. The band is excellent, as well as most of the artists on this list. - keyson
What? Daft Punk is awesome! - CoolCat999
But, Instant Crush is a great song isn't it? - glambert
Who put Daft Punk on here? They're amazing.V 2 Comments
Since when was gorillaz edm
Apparently his best song ever is also the crappiest one ever!
Ole school trance classic known for his six our rave-a-thons!
Just the worst, period.
He is not an electro artist. - SelfDestruct
No - Phantasian
They're so good but were meh when they were pop. - Elijah_Cook
