His Rebirth Album was an Epic Fail, and it's no wonder. His Guitar skills are beyond stupid. definitely deserves to be #1

The only person who even deserves to be on this list.

Lil Wayne's guitar playing was so bad it shouldn't even count for this list - Nickelstickman

Nick Jonas and Lil Wanye are the only 2 who should be on the list. This list is basically a joke, it has Kirk Hammet, Steve Vai, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page etc on this list. This list was probably made by a 10 year old.

? At least he could play, it was grunge of course there's not many really good solos or anything

His guitar playing wasn't that bad. Sure, it's nothing special, but it's not that bad. - MKBeast

He is not a bad guitarist, he is just a decent guitarist that is overrated for his guitar skills

Why Is Billie Joe here?! He should not Be here!

Billie's solos are really easy; anyone can do em. And many of his chord progressions are stolen from others - SoldierOfFortune

You shut up. Billie is amazing. Why did you put him on? Oh yeah because your an idiot - Jetticus12

Nope. Billie Joe sucks.

9 Kirk Hammett Kirk Hammett Kirk Lee Hammett is the lead guitarist and songwriter for the heavy metal band Metallica and has been a member of the band since 1983. Before joining Metallica he formed and named the band Exodus.

Seriously? This guy's solos are awesome! - MKBeast

It's not that Kirk is a bad guitarist, his solos are just very random and unorganized. Like blackened and one. Listen to stuff from Kill Em All and Ride The Lightning

WHY? Nothing more to be said. - Caleb9000

He blows big time

Although his mainstream career spanned only four years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most celebrated ...read more.

This list is a lie. Probably a 8 year old kid uploaded it to troll. Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain don't belong here. Slash and James Hetfield are also really talented. Whoever uploaded this is a joke.

Cobain said his guitar playing sucked, but it really doesn't suck that badly. Other than that, ditto. - MKBeast

The point is that Kurt Cobain said he is bad but that doesn't mean he is one of the worst. It is also weird that above it says Jimi Hendrix was one of the greatest guitarists of all time but he is on the list. Weird right?

What even is this list?
