Worst Metal Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 3
What. Peace Sells is one of the best metal albums of all times. Killing is my business is awesome as well.
Why on earth are amazing bands like slayer, Judas Priest, and megadeth on this list. Megadeth is perhaps the best thrash metal band, (Either Megadeth or Slayer in my opinion) and extremely influential. It pains me to see them on this list, and I suggest that anyone who voted for them should just stop listening to metal
Who put Megadeth on this list?! Dave Mustaine may be an ass and a crappy singer, but he's a great guitarist and songwriter and their lead guitarists have all been amazing. Not to mention how great a bass player Dave Ellefson is.
Look, the whole Metallica vs Megadeth argument can be solved by saying both are good bands. - Metalhead1997V 22 Comments
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
Papa roach are possibly one of the most frustrating bands I've ever tried to listen to, on top of their absolutely retarded band name.
Is this band even metal? I liked their first album, but they turned into basically screamo.V 2 Comments
Repetitive band and all their songs sound the same. - AlexApathy
Mudvayne was One of the forefathers of nu-metal and have heavily influenced bands like avenged seven fold, bullet for my Valentine and many other bands, mudvayne in my opinion was the father of screams, grunts, and growls.
I like mudvayne whoever made this list obviously has not listened to any of these bands
Mudvayne are as terrible as they are gimmicky & monotonous.V 3 Comments
First of all, Guns 'N' Roses is hard rock not metal. Second, they are amazing. Third they are amazing (old lineup new line up sucks ass)
It is very clear that those who vote on this list have a really poor knowledge and taste in music... I can't even believe that some great bands like Linkin Park or Guns N' Roses etc are on this list... This is pure STUPIDITY!
Whoever put Guns N' Roses on here hates metal. You all know Slash is the greatest guitarist ever to live
They suck..not metalV 2 Comments
They aren't metal. They're glam rock, and great
Bon jovi aren't metal, duh. Who was the genius that put them here?
Hard rock/Glam Metal but they're not bad. - GREYBOYY
"Best" band? Come on! Even though they are not metal, they almost single handedly destroyed metal by their "pretty boys with guitars" image, their assh ole fans, and their...ugh...POWER BALLADS! Legit hard rock and metal bands like Kiss, Motley Crue, and W.A.S.P. copied the power ballad formula from Jovi, even hiring Desmond Child (the worst songwriter EVER in my humble opinion) to write their songs! Of course, other poseur bands Cinderella, Warrant, and Poison joined in the mix did the damage to metal! This is why grunge came in and took over!V 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.V 1 Comment
What? Whoever voted for this just die please
Only a MORON would put Judas Priest as a terrible metal band
No what WHO PUT THIS HERE? Judas Priest have tallent!
They put out some great albums in the 70s and 80s. And I've already got "Breaking the Law" in my head. - Metalhead1997V 14 Comments
Tuff guy tattoo metal for the bonehead crowd. Terrible band.
They're an okay symphonic deathcore band. - Metalhead1997
Bad name for a band
Metal for people who don't like metal...
Everyone who says that they cannot play live has clearly never heard them live in recent years. Yes, they sucked on the Inhuman Rampage tour. Booze and laziness was the cause of this. Marc is much better live than ZP was at the end of his stay and they actually sound good musically live now. Look at any live performance since 2012 and you will understand. I recommend the In The Line Of Fire DVD. - Caleb9000
One of the worst live performances I've ever seen. They started about an hour late and smelt like straight piss & beer.
They're awesomeV 4 Comments
What is one of the best black metal bands doing here?
Are you kidding me? Dimmu Borgir is one of the best black metal bands ever. This is a disgrace..
Dimmu Borgir is worst than Cradle of Filth. This should be in top ten - awanshrestha
Dummy have 3 good albums:
For All Tid,
Their third album (the nake escapes me). They sold out after & now they do Gothic metal for mainstream kids.
If you've EVER seen Rammstein live, there is no way that you could place them on this list in good conscience. They may not be the best, but they know how to carry a crowd. One of the few industrial metal bands that does it right...
They're nothing special really. I know people in real life who say they're such a great band and how many people they can shock because they like to push boundaries. SO WHAT! It should be about the music and their music sucks.
All they ever sing about is sex. Big perverts.
Rammstein is epic shut the [email protected] up!V 2 Comments
Don't know how they're on this list, but each to their own I guess... - PorcupineV 2 Comments
You seem to know a lot for hating this group so much.
Nightwish have lost their creativity over the years and is really now just just an extension of Tuomas' ego. Floor Jansen was better in ReVamp and After Forever, honestly.
You must hate them cause the girl singer is just as good as matt barlow
How nobody nominated Nightwish?
The worst of the worst! Disney metal for retarded!
Awful arrangements, singer who forgot the lyrics, has the worst technics ever, never graduated on academy, but still calling her self "opera singer", frustrated keybordist and his chauvinist friend, the singers jealous manager husband, and all the drama in the end like the world is going to collapse without this circus!
Everything but the metal!
Metal is not wearing black and showing horns every minute (like Mr. Turunen) thinking that you are dangerous if you do that!
Metal is way of life, the attitude, the guts, the strength to be different not cloned! And above everything-listening to death, thresh and black as basics of metal, not drooling to the ridiculous woman called "goddess"! Goddess my a**!
Whoever added this is obviously some butthurt Christian who can't accept that their religion is a total sham.
They aren't bad, only seen like a satanic haters but their music is good
Deicide? Seriously? Classic death metal band. - Metalhead1997
Only religious fanatics will put decide on this listV 3 Comments
Children of bodom, disturbed, and slipknot should not be on this list. Espeaciallychildren of bodom. They are so epic. If you voted them as bad you should listen to angels don't kill or triple corpse hammerblow. They are way too good to be on this list. >:-(
Who kept them here I think those who think cob are worst they have no taste of music.
It's an awful band? NO! I think the Jonas Brother took too much ecstasy and don't even listen to their songs. By the way, Today the modern kids world is almost only techno, pop and dubstep! But dubstep is good but not good like Children Of Bodom, Metallica, Iron Maiden and etc metal bands.
They're like some pansy emo band like Callejon trying very hard to be Metal...there's certainly nothing even remotely to close to Melodeath in their sound (if you want Melodeath and also Melodeath at it's best,check out Quo Vadis),plus they completely sissyfied and butchered Sepultura's Mass Hypnosis...they're nothing but commercial Hot Topic teeny bopper bullcrap and they need to die in a very slow and painful way.V 7 Comments
Saw the comment "I thought this is the #1 metal Christian band? Who posting these? It's completely false. This band is awesome. Probably a hater posted it" and decided to put my vote here.

Its all the same. The singer can't sing or scream, the guitarist can't play to save his life and the bassist and drummer are boring. Terrible band.
Drummer with technical skills that could blow most metal drummers out of the water. It's not about mindless double-bass with these guys, but rather overall superior songwriting.
Um... this band was one of the biggest heavy metal names for awhile before Metallica and the whole slew of thrash. - Metalhead1997
What idiot put Diamond Head on this list? A stupid Metallica fanboy who likes their cover of Am I Evil better than the original?
