Worst Metal Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 2
The worst tried death metal band. They copied Cannibal Corpse with their growl of blood spreading all of his mouth of drug.
Other bands here are worse, but I don't consider a lot of them to be metal, but I do this band, so I voted here. Mitch Licker was one of the worst vocalists and lyricists in metal, although I'm not glad of his death. - Caleb9000
I don't think deathcore is a metal genre but yeah these guys suck.
If deathcore isn't metal then what is it - imabigpotatoV 12 Comments
Why is Bullet For My Valentine in this list? They are NOT posers, they are a great melodic metalcore band and they have never pretended to be something that they are not, so I really don't get why you call them posers when there are like 100000 bands that are 100000 times more poser than Bullet For My Valentine.
Why is bullet for my Valentine considered a bad band? They are not posers, I mean sure the vocalist doesn't always have a heavy tone, but nonetheless they are great. Bullet for my Valentine- you want a battle (here's a war)
Their ok some good songs some band but they do have some crap songs but their still good
It's kind of hard to call these guys bad, at least with respect to their albums Fever and Venom. The others...well, that's up to personal opinion, but I don't feel the earlier stuff is very good, especially vocally. Maybe it's just poor memory, but I seem to recall them being whiny back when, and that's usually a dealbreaker for me.V 11 Comments
Why this on list? They are the backbone of death metal after death disbanded
Sounds like cookie monster made a metal band.
After Death disbanded, Obituary became the backbone of Death Metal, because you can actually understand what Jon Tardy screams. Cannibal Corpse are talented musicians who make dull and unintelligible dirge. They've earned their place in Death Metal, which I do respect, just not with me.
Should be in the top 10V 22 Comments
Their first 2 albums were pretty good but nowadays Five Finger Death Punch is the epitome of awfulness. Dick head band members, childish tough guy image, and some of the most laughably god-awful lyrics of any band on the planet. How ANYONE likes this piss-poor excuse of a band is beyond me.
They need to change the band name, seriously. Because the title Five Finger Death Punch seems to be a Hardcore Metal, Nu-Metal band. But they are not really like that. They did a lot of soft songs and that's the way this band is known. They should really change the title to maybe "Five Ways To Freedom". They did good song but the title just don't fit with the band.
If Nickelback were metal...for morons that can't step up to any kind of technical music with meaningful lyrics. The soundtrack to a moronic pussies life
Very overratedV 13 Comments
Quite possibly the band with the least structure in all of popular music. The electronic tracks are the only highlights of their one album, and even they are so uninteresting by instrumental standards.
No talent at all. Just a bunch or strange noises.
Any band with the verb the noun trend for a name is always garbage no exceptions
At least "Surrounded by Silence" gave me a good laugh :D... The band still sucks though :/... - CrimsonSharkV 3 Comments
What? , this isn't even close to metal..
Idiots these dudes are rock not metal.
I'm glad everyone admits these guys are nowhere near metal and a great band altogether.
O.M.G. a lot of idiots out there that that doesn't know what metal is.
even their 1st album which is the heaviest isn't metal.
Jesus. I understand the sick humor, but humor doesn't make a good band. The vocals are the worst I've ever heard come out of a male (Yoko Ono takes the spot for females and the spot for all time), music is only 2 minutes at most, you get my point. To those who consider this cancer music, you must be deaf or stupid. - MKBeast
Its not even that I find them offensive they just make godawful music - LMARINE
Even if this band was a joke, the joke got old and not funny as soon as their fist note played.

In order to be one of the worst metal bands, you have to be metal. Metalheads would be really mad if they were in the best metal bands list. And My Chemical Romance never claimed to be metal, whoever nominated them and is sincerely voting for them thinking that they are the worst metal band ever is
This is the worst list ever. Hardly any of the bands are actually metal, and My Chemical Romance, which isn't metal, made it to 39. Why is this on a worst list in the first place?
WOAH WOAH NO. NOPE. I can't believe My Chemical Romance is on this list. They're not metal what? And they're an amazing band.
Wow umm..no..V 7 Comments
To be completely honest, I think Gwar is probably one of the best metal bands I've come across.
My mom got pissed on at a concert and they suck
Guys, they made GWAR as a joke, they're supposed to be bad.
I honestly find Gwar more funny than bad.V 6 Comments
Why is this on here? Their first 4 albums were amazing! Their modern stuff sucks though :T
0% votes. Calm down guys, KoRn is on the list because 1 person didn't like them. 1. KoRn is awesome
An example of a good new metal band and it gets on this list? Stupid ass metal elitists. - AlexApathy
To be completely honest. KoRn is ok, they're just hated because of a bunch of edgy teenagers who only want the "toughest riffs". If you label a metal band as a genre, you deserve to die. Like/hate the band, not the genre.V 13 Comments
I love this band
The reason I hate deathcore(in general), idiotimoronic core for posers and for br00tal "metalheads" Complete and utter crap.
CG is awesome
Funny to find THIS on the list, cause Evanescence is NOT metal at all.
It is a pop-rock band with Emo-influences, for wannabe gothic teenagers
Who want to seem like they are deep and cool while
Secretly they are listening to Britney Spears, just like the ugly singer does herself.
Their lyrics are all about the same subject (whining about nobody loves u),
And all the songs sound the same. Using some electric guitars and screaming like her ass is on fire doesn't make it metal.
They are really good but just don't fit in with metal or death metal.
The comments made me smile guys you read my mind
What is wrong with people. amy lee's voice is great. also they are metal, listen to the open door album. so heavy. - Th3Zm0nst3rV 1 Comment
They have A LOT of swearing because they are against censorship
What?! These guys are badass! - Metalmaniakkk
Tom Morello is a great guitarist. - DoroExploro13
Get these communists to the top ten, NOW!V 4 Comments
Yet another "Real Metal " band that is only liked from teenage scene kids. I'll admit, I didn't mind their sound at first back at my Emo phase, but I soon discovered that they literally were just a copy and paste sound from other bands such as The Amity Affliction, Sleeping with Sirens and other "Real Metal" bands. After realising how unoriginal their music was, I haven't listened to them at all. The fact that people can call these bands boy bands "Metal" or even "Punk" disgusts me. Metal and Punk were both genres of rock, which included powerful lyrics, loud sounds and epic instrumentals. What we have here, is a bunch of middle aged men with high pitched voices singing about broken hearts, etc.
These guys suck there always putting emo lyrics in there songs
While they aren't great, they aren't bad either. I don't even listen to the kind of music they do. I'm just being objective. Besides, they're not even metal. If anything, they're post hardcore.
They suckV 1 Comment
These need to be higher on this list! THEY SUCK!
They rely on gimmicks
Make over the top rock
Cheesy choreographed guitar moves, horrid vocals
Probably the most embarrassing band ever... If they took themselves less seriously, it would make them less annoying.
Kiss is one of the most important bands in metal history
Kiss is the best band in the world and dude who put the other coment sucks
Tell dimebag that kiss sucks, he'd punch youV 3 Comments
They are, along with 5sos, the worst and most poser band I've ever seen in rock music. This band is a joke, ugh.
THEY SUCK PEOPLE ONLY LIKE THIS BAND TO GET ATTENTION AND IF YOU LIKE THIS BAND TOU ARE ONLY DESCRIBED AS ONE WORD... POSER!
I can't stand them and their fanbase. Stupid poser preppy girls
Even Post-Hardcore fans like me hate SWS. You want good post-hardcore? Listen to The Fall of Troy, Sianvar, or At the Drive-In. Bands that can actually play their instruments and although the cleans aren't for everybody, they still have tons of musical talent and make better music than this joke of a band.V 3 Comments
Saxon are great! And they are metal.
Whoever even included one of the greatest metal bands to ever come from Britain, along with Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Motorhead, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Diamond Head, Raven, Tank, Tygers of Pan Tang, and UFO, just do us all a favor and go get a vasectomy.
I don't understand why one of the best bands from the NWOBHM is doing on this list
Saxon? Why are they on here? - Metalhead1997
Him is a Gothic Rock band genius. - GREYBOYY
