Top Ten Worst Music Artists

The Top Ten

1 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, song writer, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada (despite once claiming he was Part-Indian) and he is Christian. He is the son of an author, Pattie Mallet. ...read more.

I may respect him a little after he grows taller than the girls in his music videos, but until then I cannot handle this kid. I honestly thought he was a girl for over a year. And his music is empty and unoriginal just like all pop music seems to be these days. Also, I'm surprised not enough people know he covers some of his songs. I wish people critically evaluated their music and the quality of its lyrics rather than following it blindly just because every other kid listens to it on the radio.

This little roach has been infesting music for too long. All rock and metal fans out there, go on Justin Bieber's birthday (March 1) and go to his official "Baby" video and click the dislike button repeatedly until the disllike bar is ten times larger than the like bar. DON'T LET ROCK AND ROLL DIE!

You just need time and perspective. Bieber isn't the worst pop artist ever, just one of the latest pop artists to be overrated. They come and go.

Oke, the first time he came up with the song "Baby" I didn't think he was that bad (or should I say thanks to Ludacris it wasn't that bad). But after this dude released his other songs it almost made me wanna shut my ears. I just don't understand why most GIRLS like him, and I don't understand why his video "Baby" has so many views on YouTube (WHY! ). His voice is a horrible wreck, you don't see the difference between a boy's and a girl's voice. So I would like to say all the Metal fans go on and support bands like Dead by April, they are the ones that deserve one billion views on YouTube and not that stupid Beaver. Let's go Metal, Pop sucks when it comes to Bieber (I didn't say POP sucks, but when it comes to Bieber then it sucks). And by the way, he isn't a good person at all, he almost killed people while racing like a mad idiot on the streets, he has no respect for his neighbors etc.. I can't tell. I believe he has done some good things, he has helped people and other stuff like ...more

Agreed but I personally think that Lady Gaga should be in number 1 - JolteonIsAwesome

HE SUCKS

2 Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj is a Trinidadian American rapper / pop music artist. Nicki is most known for songs like "Anaconda", "Only", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe" . Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. ...read more.

Just in case you don't think she's THAT bad, listen to her latest album "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. " I don't joke when I say it's the most atrocious piece of trash ever created. "Stupid Hoe" is the worst song ever made, plain and simple. Therefore, Nicki Minaj is officially the worst artist EVER!

Her music is so overrated, and it isn't even slightly good. The lyrics she uses are so cliche. They emphasize the fact that she's a hoe. They are also really degrading to women as they picture them as cheap objects, and this is alarming considering that she's a lady herself. I just don't see whats good about her music.

This woman has got to be the worst, female rapper, ever! She sucks so bad that, do you even call her a rapper? What the crap is she? What is she? She has to use autotune, she sounds like a whiney little girl whenever she raps, she has got to be the worst female rapper I have ever heard. At least with all these other rappers on this list, you can call them all RAPPERS! But Nicki Minaj is so horrible that she can't even be classified as a rapper. Even Lil Wayne, you can call him the worst but nicki minaj? What the crap is she?! What is she?! She can't even be called a rapper! She's lower than the worst! What is this this chick?! Damn! I hope she never comes back. I hope she never tries to come back. And I certainly hope that all these awful, fake, phony mainstream rappers (that includes Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus. ) never come back. I hope they all end up like Bubba Sparxxx, who left and never came back.

This bitch puts out garbage. - shiftaltkey

3 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. The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

Every sane 3-12 year old girl will not listen to One Direction and that will be including me. I just do NOT see what is so great about them. Just about every artist on this list is horrible and did you notice-- 3/4 are pop artists?

I live in Sydney, Australia, which is, believe it or not, not actually the capital of Australia. Sydney is generally a cool place, right? We host many music festivals, my personal favourite being Soundwave, an epic metal festival on its 9th year running. A few years ago a shop dedicated entirely to One (No) Direction opened up. I was there the day it opened up, and was so tempted to run down the 500 metre long lines on screaming fan girls with my car in an effort to save them from this corruption that I actually pulled up at the end of one of the THREE queues, yes there were three, and gunned my engine. thankfully no one noticed me as they couldn't hear my engine over the screams of the girls. Now, I drive an old Nissan Skyline. I have a turbocharged V6. That is not a quiet engine. I have been pulled over for noise pollution twice. There was that much hype over a single store. To sum this up. I hate one direction so much that I would murder their fan base to save them from the horror ...more

I hate putting One Direction in a worst bands or music artists lists. Because they're not even a band. Not even music artists. They make bad music, or should more accurately be called "music". If you put them in a list about bad music, put them on a worst "music artists" list. Remember the quotation marks.

None of them are that talented and the only reason the individual members are getting as famous as they are is because their annoying white girl fans won't stop obsessing over them. - shiftaltkey

4 Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus Miley Ray Cyrus is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Miley Cyrus's voice is contralto. 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.

You know what I'm sick of? I'm sick of all this horrible mainstream pop and rap music, I'm sick of all this abuse of auto-tune, and I'm sick of all this extreamly pointless gossip news about modern celebrities and old celebrities for that matter. But most importantly, I'm sick of Miley Cyrus. And looking at her now, it comes clear to me that Miley Cyrus officially needs to go away. She tries way too hard to be sexy and controversial that its just painful to watch. And can you believe there are some young teenage girls who still look up to her? To any parents who are reading this, HER Disney Channel DAYS ARE GONE NOW. You're not supposed to be letting your kids or teen daughters watch any thing she does on mtv or let them listen to any of her songs because of the way she is now. You could actually die from an addiction of drugs ( that goes for any addicts who are reading this right now) and you could get diseases from too much sex. I feel bad for Billy Ray Cyrus. I really do. Let's ...more

When I was young I used to think she was a role model. Now that I look at her I'm like "Oh my God she has to be the worst thing America has ever done! " Her singing about partying, drugs, sex, and other kinds of crap like that.

IS THIS WHAT AMERICA HAS COME TO?!? Glorifying drug abusing, party obsessed prostitutes like Miley Cyrus?! What has this world come to?! No someone tell me! Someone just tell me already! Are humans really this stupid? Or am I just dreaming? Maybe I've died and have gone to hell because this is what I would expect!

Sooner or latter Cyrus is gonna realize that she made a big mistake and she's gonna regret it for the rest of her life. You know it's gonna happen.

23, and We can't stop. I honestly can't stop puking listening to 23. One of the worst songs in the history of music. Absolutely HATE that song. And I got through about um 30 secs of the Horrible wrecking ball video and then thankfully my computer blew up - Selenator78

This dude cannot speak English. Kids, speaking like an illiterate gang member is not cool. - michaelhughes

Can't even call him an artist because he is such a massive sellout like every other mainstream hip-hop artist. He is ruining the American youth because he raps about drugs, hoes, sex and violence and makes kids think the way he lives in his music videos is cool. I know from first hand experience that teens want to be like there favorite rappers, so they start smoking, drinking, fighting, and having sex, ruining their potential in life.

An ignorant, illiterate, egoistic person. Does not help erase black stereotypes.

His music actually isn't bad. He doesn't deserve to be on here. - shiftaltkey

6 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".

Actually friday was the only song she didn't sing well, before you start hating her or what see to it that you have seen some of her new stuff, she actually has a beautiful voice. The friday song just didn't turn out well. But if you view her youtube channel, you'll hear how lovely her voice is in the covers that she had done recently. I hated her before but I figured that before I start hating someone, I should give them a chance to redeem themselves so I watched more of her videos and it turned out that her singing is actually good.

At least everyone else on this list doesn't hurt you... This girls voice actually hurts, AND ITS EVEN AUTOTUNED LIKE HELL! I can't imagine how bad her non-autotuned voice is! That might actually kill someone! - MeowMix

Rebecca black actually seems nice it's ok if you say o I am not a huge fan of Rebecca black but saying o she's ugly fat and stupid (example) or sending death threats is not nice at all sending death threats sometimes the FBI have to get involved I'm out bye

Putting a Youtuber on the worst artists list is so lazy. - shiftaltkey

8 Taylor Swift Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift (Taylor Swift) is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She is best known for writing break up songs and for having more than 5 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching ...read more.

Taylor Swift, the most psychotic ex-girlfriend in the world, her music is terrible, all she does is bitch and moan that some boy broke her heart, we get it Taylor Swift, you were dumped, get over it.

She has never faced any real adversity in her life, EVER. Her parents are rich, now she's rich, yet she always acts like the whole world is against her and she's so hard done too. I don't know why anyone takes her music seriously. Her fanbase are probably all the whiny pre-pubescent twelve year old girls that don't know ANYTHING about life, who thinks that some boy they broke up with after knowing them for five minutes is something worth crying about. She sucks, the end.

Not everything she writes are about breakups. And what's wrong with that, what else is she suppose to write about? She's not the worst artist but I would definitely say she is the most overrated modern pop star we have right now. And her music is not suppose to appeal to everyone, if you don't like it then listen to something else. - DarkInk

I honestly liked her songs like love story and enchanted. But now she is singing only breakup songs. I don't know why this girl is behaving like every boy on earth has dumped her. In every song she is cursing her ex and say that its over now. And then she releases another single and you will realise that its not over. The breakup story continues with another new ex.

She may have serious issues with her relationships but she doesn't need to poison people with that type of music. She clearly sucks.

She should be higher up on this list after "...Ready For It? " - shiftaltkey

9 Chris Brown Chris Brown Christopher Maurice "Chris" Brown (born May 5, 1989) is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actor.

He is most well known for his physical assault towards the singer Rihanna in ...read more.

In all my years as a recording producer and front man of a metal band, I had never heard someone high on crack vomit out vague words about being high on crack. that was until I heard Chris Brown. This guy is the partial birth abortion of Britney Spears, Satan, and Tyga. at least Tyga can sort of rap with some clarity. This retarded douchebag probably can't even write his own lyrics, and makes it up on the spot in the booth while on his own personal acid train. get a reality check, slit your own throat, and spare the world of your heap of crap that you laughingly call music.

He gave Rihanna a black eye. he even had a tattoo that looked suspiciously like a battered woman. it's not a homage to Rihanna, but the resemblance is uncanny.

Chris Brown is so rude, he makes Kerry King look like the nicest man known. Brown beats up women, and even has a tattoo of a battered woman. That tattoo on Brown makes Kerry King's "GOD HATES US ALL" tattoo look divine and pure.

His music is annoying and he abuses women. - shiftaltkey

14 Meghan Trainor Meghan Trainor

"All About That Bass" reinforces body shaming, skinny shaming in particular, all coming from someone who isn't even overweight. "Lips Are Movin'" insinuates that everything that men say are lies. Then we have "Title", which blasts men for friend-zoning women (ironic considering it's usually the other way around), and worst of all, "Dear Future Husband", which basically says "Hey men, if you wanna get with me, you have to cater to my every whim, ditch your own autonomy and throw yourself under the bus for me at every opportunity." All four of these songs, which are offensive to everyone regardless of their gender, are on her first (and only, as of writing) album. If that wasn't enough, she also featured on Charlie Puth's "Marvin Gaye", which aside from being the most unsexy song about sex this side of "Afternoon Delight", pretty much misses the whole point of being a tribute song to another music artist.

Except for Like I'm Gonna Lose You ft John Legend, Meghan Trainor is the queen of 60 years out-of-date, cocky, uncharismatic trash.

All About That Bass, I have a mixed to negative opinion on. A weak 2/5 I might say. It was catchy and a nice concept, but that concept was executed terribly. Also kind of an outdated concept since everyone likes fat people now (ahem, Jason DeRulo, 2 Chainz, Snoop Dogg, Kanye West).

Lips Are Moving was kind of pointless, but still catchy. I'd give it a strong 1/5. I still think she should cut down on the arrogance until she gets some charisma.

Dear Future Husband was an absolute abomination, I'd give it a 0/5 no question about it. I already ranted about it.

So yeah, her track record is definitely below average, especially for someone who is far older than Taylor Swift when SHE started her career and somehow has less grasp on her topics than Swift did. - WonkeyDude98

Having the same repeated, completely idiotic lyrics doesn't count as a song. How she became famous, I will never know. I'm so sick and tired of all these terrible pop artists becoming famous.

She is a taylor swift wanna be

15 LMFAO LMFAO LMFAO was an American hip hop-electronic dance music duo consisting of uncle and nephew Redfoo and SkyBlu.

LMFAO are nothing but talentless perverted hunks of garbadge. their songs have absolutely no reason to be known (nor did they ever deserve to be number one In america! ) And they just try too hard especially with sexy and I know it. They need to be gone from the media, and gone from the earth. FOR GOOD.
Not to mention that one of their songs party rock anthem has a lyric that is a great kick in the face to led zeppelin. now that's sinful.

Now I don't like this duo but remember it's just my opinion. But what lmfao should realize is that no matter what song you sing about partying, drugs, sex, or anything else, and that song gets published, it's gonna be there forever unless you do something about it.

They really are perverts who "rap/sing" about screwing girls (as in... You know) anyway the lyrics again are Farrell

Some Dubstep is cool. The concept of it is not a bad idea. Any new style of music has potential. Dubstep had that potential. Skrillex took that potential, and nuked it. anyone who thinks skrillex is cool needs to put themselves into rehab. No joke, the guy has no musical talent whatsoever. I reckon he probably doesn't even know the basics of music. Dubstep should be an experimental, free, crazy, expressive, indie sort of music. Skrillex has ruined it for eternity by making it mainstream. Go drink a gallon of Draino and rot.

Skrillex is awesome, vote for Kesha.

Skrillex is actually extremely talented. Maybe his music doesn't appeal to everybody, but he is a genius at editing and producing sounds.

Skrillex is amongthe most talented and professional artists in the history of the world. I mean, sure, he's fading out now, but that's his fault. If you've never heard his album, entitled "Recess", then you should try it out, pardon the pun. - Rythmystic

Kesha is an animal rights activist and she works for H.S.I. (Humane Society International). Kesha also stands up for L.G.B.T. rights in America

She doesn't even sing! She just yells in a drunk, raspy, auto tuned voice about being drunk and partying. Seriously? ANYONE CAN DO THAT! - isabellapineiro

Ke$ha is just awful, unlike Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber she actually can't sing, I don't like Justin Bieber's music, but he's a good singer even without the Autotune and so is gaga, but Ke$ha sounds like a girl standing in front of the mirror singing into a hairbrush without Autotune - D2Demon

Terrible, butt-ugly, and just makes me wanna strangle myself every time I hear her.

This just in: The CIA has been using Ke$ha's songs to torture prisoners of war.

Not a fan. Shes not that bad, but after a wild the faux-trashiness gets kind of old. I feel bad for her, having such a terrible producer. I hope that she'll grow out of this phase, because she seems decent enough to make a few hits.

They were pretty good at first with "Photograph" and "Rockstar" but the next thing you know they totally sell out. They started making crap like "If Everyone Cared" and that one country song (pass me the barf bag). I don't even think they write their own songs anymore - queen11

I thought they were decent when I first heard them. I think they gave up trying to write decent lyrics to their songs. - michaelhughes

What is the problem with Nickelback!? All those that can't stand nickelback can reply to my comment when they sell out a 100,000 seat arena in 24 hours. Most bands today can't even do that. And most people hate nickelback because they meet the standards of a band too well. Don't know why

Eh. Nickelback is pretty bland. Silver Side Up was their only good album, and even then, it only had one good song.

Jacob is a singer known for his top 90 hit Sweatshirt, which amassed over a million YouTube dislikes in less than a year, and other singles ABC remix and musical .ly clips. Jacob Sarorius has a YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and other Social Media.

This boy has got to be the worst male singer ever. He sucks so bad, that do you even call him a singer? He has to use autotune, it just makes him sound like a malfunctioning robot, when he "sings." He has got to be the worst male singer I have ever heard. At least with all the other bad singers on the list, you can call them SINGERS. Even Justin bieber may be bad, but he can at least be classified as a singer. Jacob sartorius? What the crap is he? WHAT IS HE? He can't even be considered a singer. He's lower than the Worst! What is he? Damn, I hope he never comes back. I hope he never tries to come back. And I also hope all these horrible new breakout artists like the Chainsmokers and Johnny Orlando also go away. I hope they end up like Rebecca Black who went away and never came back.

I was listening to Sweatshirt from my room, and my mom yelled across the kitchen "shut up Tommy your singing is giving me a headache" until I told her I was watching a Music Video.

He sounds like an 11 year old (no offense 11 year olds, I bet you can make better music) on steroids. Sweatshirt (the song) was complete GARBAGE! - TailchaserFan10
