Worst Metal Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 2
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
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.
Shouldn't be on this list... - say10V 13 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
Calling this band "heavy metal" is an insult to the genre.V 14 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
This is 26th. Great job, guys. They should be replacing BVB but 26th is ok...
...Yeah... - AdamDestructorJr.
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.
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
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
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
Late 2000's Korn is bad, their first few albums are goodV 14 Comments
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.
Jesus, 'not even metal' doesn't stop them from getting on a 'worst metal bands' list. - AdamDestructorJr.V 8 Comments
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
Rubbish music for "rebel and dope teenagers"V 2 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
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
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
Venom? Are you serious... They are definitely not the most talented musicians or anything but they inspired so many Black/Death/Thrash etc.. They are basically the godfathers of extreme metal...
Many bands such as The Big Four and Black/Death Metal were influenced by Venom. Even if you don't like their music you have to give them credit. They're probably your favorite band's favorite band.
These guys made thrash metal a thing, basically. Why you do dis?
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
Why would I vote Manowar when there are many far worst bands on the list? First, when they themselves claim that they are the quintessence of metal, they make themselves a target. And while they indeed have some amazing songs, namely on their first 3 albums, what they have recorded after Kings of Metal (mediocre in my opinion), is simply a joke. Then there's the fact that they represent everything that WAS wrong with my favorite genre 10-15 years ago. Enough with the cheese! They make Immortal look serious!
Who put these guys on this list?
The Godfather of Power Metal is on this list? Power metal itself is pretty good. - Metalhead1997
