The Top Ten
England is my city. What has humanity become
What has humanity done?
Katy > Jake. Jake is horrible. - DCfnafV 12 Comments
He's no longer relavant
This guy is the artist that a bunch of douchy frat guys and country white girls listen to when they get drunk. He's an absolute retard, and probably one of the worst artists this year. - shiftaltkey
He makes country rap music, which is terrible by the way. He made one of my worst nightmares come true. I don't hate country as much anymore, I just hate country rap and a few mainstream country artists like Florida Georgia Line.
Someone Get Rid Of This Retard. - AlphaQV 1 Comment
Kodak Black needs to go back to Jail along with Rick Ross
Sucks, worst rapper ever. Tunnel Vision is garbage, the beat sounds all out of tune, and he talks with autotune rather than rap, and the lyrics are awful and are basically saying that he is a criminal. Even MattyBraps is better than him, at least MattyBRaps does not sound as dreadful.
Ugh..probably the worst rapper of 2017 next to Lil Yachty, Machine Gun Kelly, and Post Malone. - shiftaltkey
Tunnel Vision is Doom. -2/10 - AlphaQV 2 Comments
I've never really been a fan of Katy, but I've never had a problem with her too bad. Some of her songs are admittedly quite catchy. But 2017 has not been her year, with disappointing album sales, and extremely gross or hypocritical songs (Chained To The Rhythm is criticizing the pop music style that she made to gain the fame, Bon Appetit is gross and is an unfortunate implication of pro-cannibalism). - Swellow
I think we all agree she sounded like she was high on something when she said "No barriers, no borders" as a response the Manchester bombing. - jrodz
"We should all open our borders and be welcome with open arms! " LMFAO Katy is a moron. - DCfnaf
She used to be a very pretty woman (see picture), but then turned into a Miley Cyrus-like lesbian (she's probably a lesbian now let's face it.) - Teravolt1422
You used to be decent. Not perfect, but forgivable. Now you've become the new Miley Cyrus, and you even stole the hair. - hiphopgodV 20 Comments
Okay, now that she has released "Look What You Made Me Do"...higher. Higher now please. - DCfnaf
I do like I Did Something Bad and This is Why We Can't Have Nice Things and...Ready for It. (Don't attack me) But they're for different reasons, not for Taylor Swift reasons. My favorite is Getaway Car. Which isn't a single. When it comes to Taylor. No way. They're actually pretty mediocre. - MissRWBY202
She hasn't even made more than one song this year. Give her a break. - Swellow
She only made one song this year, so I don't think she should be on the list.
Honestly the hate on her is getting annoying. She only collabed in one song this year. She's not even as bad as people say she is. She is overrated but she is also overhated. - DCfnafV 6 Comments
This guy is just a walking meme at this point. His music contains a bunch of screeching, like that's the new artistic thing to do right now. He's a had a rough life though, I'll give him that much. - shiftaltkey
Can't feel sympathy since he's done horrible things and makes garbage music though. - DCfnaf
Wait...since when is Halsey bad and worse than the worst artist? Please get this person who creates artless noise higher.
Can't KEEP MY DICK IN MY PANTS - AlphaQ
Listen to their album and tell me they're good. It's impossible. - DCfnaf
He's not even worth to exist. - Vaibav
Man, I hate this guy. - SimonCloud
He's still a thing? I guess the internet is obsessed with this pre-pubescent loser that I love to ridicule. - shiftaltkey
How dare you put him on this list?! He's not even a musician... - PhenomentalOneV 13 Comments
This piece of crap should be in jail but ainstead, he's still making stupid music about how he wants a girl to have sex with him. He should be lucky that a girl is doing anything for him. - shiftaltkey
Why is this talentless pile of dogcrap not in the top 5? - DaWyteNight
What do you expect from a Trump-supporting piece of crap? Mediocrity.
Stay clear from my lists please. I HATE liberals who can't respect other people's viewpoints, ESPECIALLY in a country with freedom of speech. - DCfnaf
A Neo-Nazi singer for a Neo-Nazi nation.
Her music promotes murder. No wonder Americans are so uncivilised. Have you heard many pop, rock (even punk and heavy metal), R&B, soul, or jazz songs advocating for murdering an unfaithful significant other? Enough said.
You realize that she made nothing this year, right? - DCfnafV 4 Comments
They sucked hot crap in 2017
Um...I don't listen to them and frankly, I don't want to. - shiftaltkey
Please explain why these guys are not on the first page. Their album was atrocious. - DCfnaf
Gucci gang came along
kill this bitch - weatherman419
She's supposed to be a bad artist
And what I mean by no is that Cupcakke is terrible. She deserves to be on this list No was my reaction to her. - MissRWBY202
I don't care about lyrics being vulgar, but I feel like her whole image is being vulgur for the sake of being vulgar, trying to be edgy for the sake of being edgy, but actually turning out to be complete garbage. - shiftaltkey
My sister said that her playing Kim Possible would be "awesome." She's nothing to me now. - 445956V 11 Comments
Sounds like a computer throwing up - DaWyteNight
He made End Game worse that it already would have been.
I can't believe he's still feautured on songs. His voice sounds like it has been messed up WITH autotune, and his beats are processed to oblivion. - shiftaltkey
He continues to ruin literally every song he is featured in. - DCfnafV 4 Comments
Oh come on. Seriously. Her only good song is Black Widow, and when she made "Mo Bounce," it's just disgusting and terrible, and the butt message makes me want to hit myself with a hammer. She was terrible this year. - MissRWBY202
And also all of her songs, but Black Widow, which is surprising for her. - MissRWBY202
And I really mean she was HORRIBLE in all of her songs. - MissRWBY202
Iggy is the problem of modern music. No soul, no heart, no goosebumps, no nice lyrics, and gross butts is a big definition to this crappy singer.V 7 Comments
He's fun. - AlphaQ
Or he just finds it fun. You know, liking trap isn't some rare sin that no one ever performs... - ProPanda
"SHE BLOW DAT DIK LIKE A CELLO! "
"She blow that d**k like a cello" enough said - DaWyteNight
Meh, he was decent. Delete Me was a good song though. AND IT's NOT POKEMON! - MissRWBY202
His music is for babies
This guy is what every 12-13 year old anime and pokemon fan wants to listen to on Youtube. - shiftaltkey
Their only good song of the year was "Something Just Like This." "Closer" had potential for me but I didn't like the part where Halsey basically just re-said the entire first verse just with some words changed. - hiphopgod
No! The Chainsmokers are an amazing band! Closer, Something Just Like This, Paris, Young, Honest, The One, Until You Were Gone...Those are amazing songs!
Of course I have. I've listened to Halsey, 21 Pilots, OneRepublic, Imagine Dragons, Portugal The Man, and The Chainsmokers!
They are just okay for me - RoseCandyMusic
Electronic posers - Teravolt1422V 6 Comments
Hell no he's one of the few good rappers in the mainstream - DaWyteNight
He's the only rapper I like and he still kinda sucks! - EliHbk
Meh, I've seen worse rappers. Just look at Kodak Black. - shiftaltkey
Culture was so trash. - DaWyteNight
I don't like Migos, but I do like Quavo. Quavo should quit the band
"Bad and Bougee" and "Bon Appetit" happened. - DCfnaf
Oh come on. Nickelback above Rae Sremmurd? There goes whatever faith I still had in humanity. - allamassal
They Basically Swang Their Golf Clubs At Yung Negus. -1/10 - AlphaQ
"Swang" happened this year. I don't get how these two and BOTDF are famous. - DCfnaf
This guy is still relevant? - wrests
He is still a thing? Oh boy... - DaisyandRosalina
Funny how everyone let him slide as he bragged on his albums about having back-door sex with an underage girl.
Kendrick was the most overrated rapper of 2017. - DaWyteNight
They ruin every song.
These guys below Kendrick makes me want to die
Do they still make music? How actually likes this mindless garbage? - shiftaltkey
They still make music? - AlphaQ
These guys are the worst artist besides cup cake ever! - EliHbkV 5 Comments
The most overrated EVER. Nothing but booty shake, backup dancers, and lights/flash. Can't actually sing. Entertainer maybe, but not a musician.
Overrated as hell by her stans every year, but 2017 was a good year for beyonce in that she didn't release any songs (yay! ) - DaWyteNight
I only listen to her songs. I don't like her personal - ParkerFang
She made like one song... - DaisyandRosalinaV 3 Comments
He is making a really weird face in that picture
He doesn’t deserve to be on here... because he isn’t relevant anymore
"Shining"? "I'm The One"? "Wild Thoughts"? Get this boring bastard into the top ten please. - DCfnaf
Dude, how can you call this person boring? Music, I get, but he's got more personality than anyone in music except for MAYBE Miley Cyrus (who never shows it in the music anyway). - ProPanda
ANOTHER ONE :O Put in more artists, random lines, big booty babes and call it my music
I'm The One is atrocious and so is he
This guy made a super annoying song with JB, Migos and Lil Wayne in one track, destroyed a good Rihanna performance with Bryson Triller and made Beyoncè sound like a man... top ten please. - DaisyandRosalinaV 2 Comments
While I was disappointed at the turn to pop music after listening to the album a lot I quite like it as far as pop albums go. It's better than most other pop albums of the year even if its harder to see past the cravings for some hard LP screams. - Rathernotbenamed
I'm not sure if any band could have a worse year than Linkin Park in 2017. Their lead singles spelled doom right from the start. Their album bombed, both critically and commercially. They made enemies with their fanbase. They've done so badly that people are questioning whether they were ever good in the first place. - Zach808
Even if their last album was stupid and I'm not their biggest fan, I hope Chester Bennington rests in peace and I send my condolences. - DCfnaf
Linkin Park you should be proud of your accomplishments and One More Light is an amazing song. RIP Chester you were a good singerV 7 Comments
The band that's a favorite of 40 something soccer moms, driving their whiny kids to and from school to practice, making a stop for a Chai latte at Starbucks. - shiftaltkey
I loved their san francisco album but everything else they've done has been trash. - GrimmShady
Surely 20+ years in the running hasn't transferred you to pop.
Oh wait, it has.
Got famous for being tight with Justin Bieber. - hiphopgod
I don't agree he is amazing
he shouldn't deserve too much fame - weatherman419
If their is a crazy armies on this list I just want to message the person who put this item here prepare for the army attacks - RoseCandyMusic
K-Pop Blows... - AlphaQ
She's one of the only singers who makes good music.
I like Bebe Rexha, her songs sound cool.
Generic, autotuned pop, just another flavor of the month that will fade quickly.
Not the worst, but certainly not good - DCfnaf
He should set himself on fire - weatherman419
Poor marilyn manson😭 what bieber said was UNFORGIVABLE!
Bastardized the Spanish language in Despacito
Made I'm The One
Etc, etc, etc.
WHO IS THIS PERSON?! I've literally only heard of her from this site! - GrimmShady
She has had seven consecutive albums hit #1 on the Billboard Classical Chart, and was the #3 selling classical artist of 2017 worldwide, according to Billboard.
Her audience is people over 35 years old, and she is marketed toward them, so its not surprising that kids have not heard of her.
She is passable I guess but she is not the greatest. - DaisyandRosalinaV 2 Comments
Frauenarzt is probably one of the weakest German rappers. He first tried dirty rap and then switched to clean party-techno rap. It was clear his lyrical abilities are... underwhelming. Unintentionally funny even. But it was okay at least. For that type of music you don't need much skill. Just make it a bit entertaining.
Now, he's back with a no-name rapper called Taktlo$$ as a duo. And they make horrorcore. Zero atmosphere, zero creativity, zero wit, zero talent. And while Frauenarzt is underwhelming, Taktlo$$ is plain awful. He barely rhymes, contradicts himself in two successive lines, doesn't make sense and often quite literally says "blood, death, violence - yeah! ".
If you want to make horrorcore you have to do one of the following three things:
a. create a dark atmosphere. May it be disturbing, deranged, creepy, scary, or simply gothic
b. be fun. Pretending to be deranged, insane and twisted can be a lot of fun if you are into that kind of humor. Just be ...more - Martin_Canine
Tyler is great. He's one of the most unique and original artists around. WHO DAT BOY? WHO HIM IS? - hiphopgod
He created Who that Boy, the worst song ever made. The beat is the most awful I have ever heard in my life. The lyrics to his songs are lazy and awful, and he can't rap, he has no flow. Even Dahvie Vanity makes better music, despite him still being the worst vocalist around.
Come on. Nowadays, her singles have lyrics that aren't about love, sex, or drugs with some actual instruments and no autotune. Now that you all are getting that, you all trash it? - DCfnaf
I know she went through a lot, but her music is still mediocre as hell. - shiftaltkey
A very overrated artist. Her songs aren't even close to good.
He's was a good singer, now his songs are too sexual. If you listened to talk Dirty to me, it's terrible and the rap makes it worse - ParkerFang
I liked some of his old stuff, now he is releasing stupid sex songs. - 445956
That stupid song "Swalla" says enough. - DCfnaf
I love The Weeknd! His song In The Night in particular, never gets old!
He's awesome... - DCfnaf
And we thought The Hills was bad...oh here comes STARBOY
terrible lyrics - weatherman419
Starboy is one of the most awful pieces of garbage I’ve ever heard, and he’s an awful modern pop rap artist who has to say the n word every five seconds.
Edit: I don’t have a problem with anyone saying he n word as long as it’s not racist. I do have a problem with you using it constantly because your vocabulary is that small and you’re hat terrible at songwriting.
Halsey is the best singer in the universe. Her songs involve her amazing voice and meaningful lyrics. Halsey is the definition of good music. 19/10. I mean, how couldn't you like the amazing singer who sings Control, Coming Down, Colors, Haunting and so many other songs! She should not be on here! (If you'd like to reply, please be kind, as I have deleted the last comment due to a reply)
She's average but she's a stupid sjw
Has always just seemed like an average artist to me. Nothing horrendous but nothing amazing either.
An absolutely reprehensible artist. The most infuriating thing about her is that all of her songs tend to mesh the adjectives "boring" and "annoying" into one. "Now or Never" and "Not Afraid Anymore" anyone? - DCfnaf
Halsey is alt-pop. And hopeless fountain kingdom, Halsey wanted that to be proof that she can write radio music, proving that the best singer ever is extremely talented. Do you even know all of Halsey's songs?V 1 Comment
He sucks...at least least for the fast few years - CharCharBinks
He's fantastic. - DCfnaf
His music might be kind of a watered down rehash of 80's/90's r&b, but he's one of the few great singers of our time. And hey, even if his r&b isn't as good as that original style of r&b at least we have somebody in the mainstream making r&b-ish music, r&b is so dead today because most r&b singers want to be rappers and urban radio only plays trap trash. - DaWyteNight
A rapper I tried to give many chances and still didn't like. - DaWyteNight
Ha ha. More like Chance the Crapper
