21 Designer Designer Sidney Royel Selby III, better known by his stage name Desiigner, is an American hip hop recording artist from Brooklyn, New York.

He is making a really weird face in that picture - lovefrombadlands

He doesn’t deserve to be on here... because he isn’t relevant anymore

22 Train Train Train is an American roots rock band from San Francisco, formed in 1993. The band currently consists of Patrick Monahan, Jimmy Stafford, Jerry Becker, Luis Maldonaldo, Hector Maldonado, Drew Shoals, Nikita Houston and Sakai Smith.

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. - naFrovivuS

23 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

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.

WHO IS THIS PERSON?! I've literally only heard of her from this site! - GrimmShady

She is passable I guess but she is not the greatest. - DaisyandRosalina

She's good, but is she really the greatest singer? - Cartoonfan202

K-Pop Blows... - AlphaQ

25 Dj Khaled Dj Khaled Khaled Mohamed Khaled, known professionally as DJ Khaled, is an American record producer, radio personality, DJ and record label executive.

"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

Ooo oo WE THE BEST MUSIC! ANOTHER ONE! DJ KHALED! - lovefrombadlands

Feed the machine was actually pretty good. - CostcoHotDogs

I personally don't get the appeal of her and her garbage. Her lyrics are just ridiculous to me. - DCfnaf

Who likes her crappy music? I already know she's awful.

I legit want her to lose the ability to speak, forever! - EliHbk

Grates Rapper Alive. - AlphaQ

This guy is still relevant? - wrests

He is still a thing? Oh boy... - DaisyandRosalina

29 Linkin Park Linkin Park Linkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members include Chester Bennington (vocals), Mike Shinoda (rapping vocals, pianist), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture ...read more.

It's a shame because I had high hopes for Linkin Park's new album before "Heavy" was released. I've always loved Linkin Park, and if anything, I believe their albums since (and including) "Minutes to Midnight" have produced material superior to their first two albums. But "One More Light" was a real disappointment for me. Still, I'm looking forward to what the band will do in the future. - dan99

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 singer - lovefrombadlands

30 Luis Fonsi

I don't agree he is amazing

Overrated artists
he shouldn't deserve too much fame - weatherman419

31 Quavo Quavo

I love Quavo! No! - lovefrombadlands

Been featured in too many songs! The only song where I tolerated HIS rapping was by mah dear Camila Cabello

32 Rae Sremmurd Rae Sremmurd Rae Sremmurd is an American hip hop duo, composed of two brothers, Khalif "Swae Lee" Brown (born June 7, 1995) and Aaquil "Slim Jxmmi" Brown (born December 29, 1993).

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

33 Frauenarzt & Taktlo$$

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

34 Bebe Rexha Bebe Rexha

I like Bebe Rexha, her songs sound cool. - lovefrombadlands

Generic, autotuned pop, just another flavor of the month that will fade quickly.

Just bad

35 Halsey Halsey

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) - lovefrombadlands

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? - lovefrombadlands

36 Tyler, The Creator Tyler, The Creator Tyler Gregory Okonma (born March 6, 1991), better known by his stage name Tyler, The Creator, is an American rapper, record producer, and music video director.

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. - AnimeDrawer

37 Migos Migos

I don't like Migos, but I do like Quavo. Quavo should quit the band - lovefrombadlands

"Bad and Bougee" and "Bon Appetit" happened. - DCfnaf

38 Jason Derulo Jason Derulo Jason Joel Desrouleaux, better known by his stage name Jason Derulo (an alternate spelling of his surname), is an American singer, songwriter, and dancer. He is best known for his singles such as "Wiggle", "Talk Dirty", "Trumpets", "Want To Want Me", "In My Head", and "Whatcha Say", all of which have ...read more.

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

39 Tyga Tyga Tyga is a rapper that was born November 19, 1989. He was popular in 2012 and is best known for dating Kylie Jenner while she was still a minor.

Funny how everyone let him slide as he bragged on his albums about having back-door sex with an underage girl.

40 The Weeknd The Weeknd Abęl Makkonen Tesfaye, known professionally by his stage name The Weeknd, is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer.

I love The Weeknd! His song In The Night in particular, never gets old! - lovefrombadlands

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. - CostcoHotDogs
