The reason I own a gun

Lol he's number one for every worst music artists list

We all know you love him because he is handsome...(supposedly) he was the first boy in the music industry very young and good looking to appear out of nowhere because he wasn't a Disney boy! You know something different at that time.He's a good entertainer not a musician it will be all AWESOME if you just stop saying he is a super cool musician! HE IS NOT,he makes weird girl feel like they have an opportunity or something (an entertainer's job).

He Was Actually Decent This Year(Though He Was Pretty Bad Before), And This Is Ridiculous He's Just A Really Mediocre Artist Overall, And It Doens't Make Sense That He Is 1# ON EVERY WORST LIST, We Get It You Hate Him! It's So Anoying, There Are Much Worse Artists Out There

2 Omi Omi

Already Cheerleader was my pick for the worst song of 2015, I already knew he was a god awful singer, but when I saw his performance on America's Got Talent, by the way they don't. And um, IT WAS THE WORST PERFORMANCE I HAVE EVER SEEN! THIS GUY HAS MORE VOICE THAN A LITTLE KID PLAYING Call of Duty!

Cheerleader is the worst song I have ever heard

I don't hate him in any way, but I feel he used excessive auto tune in cheerleader

Cheerleader is one of wors songs this year he should be 1 - RockStarr

Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. more.

The worst of the worst; anybody who thinks she is getting "better" is proving that their own hearing is getting worse.

Should be in the top 3 - EpicJake

Justin Bieber did not do much in 2015. Nicki Minaj is still annoying in this year!

She had Hey Mama, All Eyes On You, and (technically) Only, so that counts. - WonkeyDude98

4 Gwen Stefani Gwen Stefani

Who put her here? Whoever did probably listens to Justin Bieber. She is one of the few good pop artists. She made my favorite song sweet escape. Gwen and taylor swift needs to switch. Taylor Swift is terrible at pop music. Gwen is better.

A good person and a good singer, why would anybody put her on this list?

Her recent stuff came out crap.
Sparks the Fire is one example! - SelfDestruct

5 Lil' Wayne

He can be pretty illiterate, and half the time nobody understands a word he is saying. Rap music wasn't supposed to be music that people just hum to because they can't understand anything. Also, it teaches kids that sex, violence and drugs is the way to be successful in life. Way to go Lil Wayne!

He just talks in a low, raspy voice. That's it.

She became a teen idol starring as the character Miley Stewart in the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana in 2006. Her father Billy Ray Cyrus also starred in the show.

Should be number one. At least Justin Bieber is still a bit human. No offense to Miley fans. But Miley is no longer human. #BringBackHannahMontana

I will assassinate her

7 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) were a British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015.

Best in the wooorllld.

8 Rebecca Black Rebecca Black Rebecca Black is a YouTube personality and singer who's infamous for her single "Friday," which was once the most disliked video on YouTube. She has also released other songs, including "My Moment" and "Saturday".

How she can be worst when she don't release any new music in this year. - BeaM456

She was born on June 26th 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera. She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom, "Victorious". She later become a singer more.

Skank licked donuts in a store, then put them back, how many germs does she carry after being sexual with everyone in her entourage. Then says she "hates Americans and hates America", so I am sure we would be happy if she took her concerts to someplace far away and never came back.

She's nasty for licking a donut and putting it back- Nobody wants YOUR DNA in their bodies. - PrincessKiana

Why does she keep pretending to be 12 years old?

She "showed her off" this year it's like she'd be #1 if this list was titled Worst Celebrity Behaviours in 2015, again as of July 10th Sh#ty trio (Miley, Bieber & Nicki) have been "relevant" just a few times when Gaga hasn't done anything YET! - Fan_of_Good_Music

She should be number 2 instead of gwen, I love her. Gwen is awesome, why would someone put her? Taylor Swift is the biggest disgrace to pop music and made the worst pop songs.

12 Carrie Underwood Carrie Underwood
13 Silento Silento

Now watch me tear my own ears off. Now watch me tear tear my own ears off. - PrincessKiana

I feel ashamed that he worked with Kanye West on 3 bad songs and that was all he did this year. God knows what will happen to him in the future before his death. - SelfDestruct

To whoever put Paul McCartney on this list history voted, and you lost.

We are talking 2015 here. He may have been good with the Beatles but now he is working with Kanye West for God's sake. WHAT THE HECK IS HE DOING? - SelfDestruct

Why HIM? Paul McCartney is the best forever

20 Shawn Mendes Shawn Mendes Shawn Peter Raul Mendes is a Canadian singer-songwriter and model. He attracted a following in 2013, when he began posting song covers on the popular video sharing application Vine.

Where do I even begin? This bastard is the sole reason why Canadians treat upcoming rappers like nothing more than pieces of garbage. I am sick of myself being in Canada and if I ever see him, I will throw up. And yes, he has a huge fan base that tells people with different opinions that they are stupid.
But on the music side, his songs are absolute torture. If he triumphs and I see upcoming rappers being barred from fame, I will have to step in and end his career with a hard rap diss track aimed towards him. When he is gone, Canadians might give upcoming rappers a listen at least.
But now, let's get this disgusting bastard out of music for good.

I don't get the Taylor Swift comparison, honestly. - WonkeyDude98

Catacorn, you aren't a real fan if you think Shake it Off is ugly. He is a Taylor Swift fan and if you tell him he is awesome but Taylor is nasty, he'll be unimpressed.

Yeah BBHMM sucks badly & Four Five Seconds isn't that good but American Oxygen is a great song and the video is great too so please don't get her too high...though 10th place is ok (as of July 10th).
P.S. take Madonna & Britney higher those grannies lost their sense of music TOTALLY and aren't attractive when naked... - Fan_of_Good_Music

33 Tove Lo Tove Lo

She's an amazing singer. - Swellow

What a filthy ugly crack addicted whore

34 Pusha T Pusha T

I was happy knowing he lacked Billboard hits because he was allegedly gone. Sadly, Need For Speed bought his music for the franchise reboot. But that's not all. His music was also in Ubisoft's The Crew. I am already sickened by this. - SelfDestruct

Need For Speed was a disaster, including its soundtrack that had this bozo in it! I don't get why Meek Mill wasn't in it. Pusha T can't rap!

And now the saddest part is that he has released an album this year. And that album, as expected, was garbage.

35 Noel Gallagher Noel Gallagher Noel Thomas David Gallagher is an English musician, singer, songwriter and guitarist. He served as the lead guitarist, co-lead vocalist and principal songwriter of the rock band Oasis.

His career is basically over, Drake slammed him. - PrincessKiana

This guy sucks so much that he shouldn't even be classified as a rapper. This guy rips off Eminem so much its not even funny

38 Iggy Azalea Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

She is painful to watch and thinks she's all that because of her butt. She pretends to be black and "raps" like she has a hole in her throat.

She expects all her songs to be a hit so she just straight up threw major shade at Brittney Spears when it's her fault she did that annoying alien thing. - TeenTitansGoSucks

Loved in 2014, but suddenly hated and entire 2015-16 concert tour canceled. The public's taste is very fickle.

She has got to be the worst music artist of all time

Whoever put this here is a jackass

47 Meghan Trainor Meghan Trainor

You know what? She was missing in this list until I had to add her. I hated the fact that this is about Worst Music Artists, not about "music artists".
