Top Ten Worst Music Artists

The Top Ten

1 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. ...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

Ok, this is gonna be a long rant, but not towards Bieber. It's towards his haters. Let's start.

You guys hate Justin Bieber because...why? He is a little girl? You all cannot be that dense, use common sense. He is a jerk? That would put him at #1 (where he is) on the list of artists with the worst personalities. Personality and music NEVER go hand in hand. I don't care if he was an axe murderer who killed 1,000 babies, that has NOTHING to do with him as an artist. Also, as for you saying he sings like a girl, have you never heard of Where Are You Now? What Do You Mean? Or Sorry? He's immature? Again, What Do You Mean? and Sorry. Now that I've squashed the reasons for hating him, let's see comments directly from haters.

"He is a jerk! fart! "
Again, nothing to do with his talent. And this comment showed how unintellectual Bieber haters are.

2 Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj Onika Tanya Maraj, known professionally as Nicki Minaj (born December 8, 1982) is a Trinidadian/American rapper / pop music artist. Minaj is most known for her songs such as "Anaconda", "Only", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe". ...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.

Fake autotune person, likes money that's it no talent - CosmicSpacer

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.

Actually, Miley has matured a lot nowadays. She's no longer that prostitute who twerks and swings on wrecking balls.

She still uses real instruments. Not as bad as you think. - I80

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?

They're irrelevant now. Shut up.

I just noticed the music artists on this list that are called the "worst" are the popular ones rather than the actually horrible ones.

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

He was signed to Cash Money Records by Birdman at a young age. Before he became a household name and the artist he is today, he was 1 quarter of the southern rap group The Hot Boys, ...read more.

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.

7 The Jonas Brothers The Jonas Brothers The Jonas Brothers are an American pop rock band. Formed in 2005, they gained popularity from their appearances on the Disney Channel television network.

The most boring and bland music in the industry, their songs give me stage 5 headaches, so boring and repetitive, really just fits into the definition of meaningless pop music

Yikes. I love both Metallica and Nirvana and sadly have to agree that they are overrated, but they are anything but the worst. And to even put classics like Queen and Zeppelin on this list is just insane. How can you trash on them when they are the founding fathers of rock? People that should be at the top of this list are Lil Wayne, kesha, nickelback, Linkin Park, and selena gomez.

When it asks for a reason for why you want to thumbs down a comment and there is no because of down syndrome, hardly overrated, there rated highly because they're gods and even suggesting Linkin Park be on this list is reason enough for me to nail your ball sack to a race car and making it go

Oh phooey. Really guys? They're a Disney band! Not a legitimate pop rock band!

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 a documentary about ...read more.

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.

Taylor Swift's life:

Looks through magazines to find a hot guy near her age.

Calls the guy.

"Let's go out sometimes! " *Flips hair* "Sure, cool."

They date.

Later on, he has to go to a restaurant to have a meeting that's super IMPORTANT!

She calls him right an hour before the meeting. "Wanna go out? I am really sad and I wanna date! " He replies on the phone: "I cannot, I have a really important meeting! " Then she says: "Uhm, I thought you loved me! Now you ditch me for another girl!? I hate you! We're over! "

She tells all the magazines, writes a song called "You're so Mean," makes millions, and it becomes a hit. What she told the magazine was a lie. - maddyparrot22

9 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

She should have not done Friday - JazzyJulie

The girl didn't even sing her best on Friday. Friday is her only bad song and her singing actually isn't bad. - AlphaQ

Evil Bastard he is. He Battered the Crap outta Rihanna.

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.

The only good beat he ever dropped was on Rihanna

The group's lineup consists of David "Se7en" Gallegos and Michael "Mikl" Shea, and musically are one of the founding groups in the crunkcore genre, which is crunk hip-hop with screamed vocals.

Probably the worst group ever, combining Crunk Rap with Screamo, Techno, Dance, and Pop Music = Crunkcore. These losers should be more hated. - Soulstealer

One of the worst bands I've ever heard if I can even call them a band. They are perverted disrespectful scene kids that will never be accepted.

Sucks - JazzyJulie

This is how one critic described them:

"This 'Albucrazy'-based band has done for MySpace emo what some think Soulja Boy did for hip-hop: turn their career into a kind of macro-performance art that exists so far beyond the tropes of irony and sincerity that to ask 'are they kidding? ' is like trying to peel an onion to get to a perceived central core that, in the end, does not exist and renders all attempts to reassemble the pieces futile."

13 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

My statement on celebrities being on This list for lots of reasons and how most people Will share their opinion nicely was centered around lmfao and fans If you guys didn't know who I was talking about. I don't hate these guys but please don't hate me or not being a fan of the pop group.

Breakin A Sweat is my fave.

I think that Skrillex is actually a mostly talented producer. His harsh sound design may not be for everyone, but there's no denying that he's great at what he does, whether you like it or not. For the people who say he has no musical talent, I say that his songs are well mixed and definitely follow music theory, they're just not for everyone. Heck, he actually knows how to play the guitar and piano, and he used to be the lead singer in a band called From First to Last. If you think he has no musical talent, go listen to the songs he did when he was in the band. Alternatively, you can listen to some of his more mellower songs, such as All I Ask of You, With You, Friends (Long Drive), and Summit. - Atham

What! Why is Rihanna on this list...at number 45? She should be in the top 5! - DaWyteNight

The fact that rihanna considered her music to be "rock", or "R&B" is funny up until the point that you actually hear her psychological warfare that retards and idiots call "music". I don't know if she is for real, or in it for the money, but making every single autotuned, demented word you spew from your rotten mouth sound like an overdone orgasm is not singing. to her credit though, she is one of the few abominations of humanity that play this sort of "music" that can "sing" roughly in time to the repetitive, three note crap that is known as an ostinato. Oh wait. I'm sorry, you don't know what an ostinato is? Well guess what, skank? A large percentage of the population who can see through your crap do. I am a professional recording producer, and I have heard some truly great musical talent. if you had payed me a trillion dollars to help you record a song, I will disembowel you with a machete.

So bad, she's on here twice!

You make kids with no talent whatsoever sing decent songs, RUINING them in the process, and expect them to sell as good as modern competition? This cringy garbage called "music" includes spoiled brats with no singing talent thinking highly of themselves. Words cannot describe the burning hate that I have for Kidz Bop. I would rather listen to a microwave beeping than a SINGLE song from Kidz Bop. They make Cardi B sound good, which is an American tragedy. Whoever thought that this was a good idea, does not know what music is, and should be burned at the cross. God bless your soul, but this does not pass as good music. It is suitable for a VERY small audience, as 99% of America ignores or does not like it. Get off the weed for 15 minutes, and consider the choices that you have as a company. You somehow made pop an even worse genre, making country a better option. Not only that, but you're changing the lyrics of the songs for a "younger audience." Bro, a kid can just look up the real ...more

Please tell me that Kidz Bop is a sick joke. Seriously, no offense to young twelve year olds, but to those who record this crap, tie a block of concrete to your legs, and jump off a boat into the sea. for those spoilt bastardised rich kids who are forcing their parents to take out a second mortgage to go on this stupid thing: grow up, go to school, and learn to read, write, and that not everyone has a rip of the bong every ten minutes.

Why the hell do people think having kids with no singing talent cover terrible music is going to make hits? It just makes me hate the song even more and the kid who sang it. I remember hearing this , and I wanted to push whoever thought of this garbage off a cliff. Honestly I'm not a fan of mainstream pop, but whoever thought of this does not deserve to possess money. I can't believe that spoiled brats will get their parents to get them into this. Don't get me started on the name of this, who the hell thought kidz bop was good? It makes me cringe. In the least offensive way possible to those younger generations who like this crap, Don't look up to anyone that goes into this. If you do, your going to end up on the streets digging through trashcans. I'm pretty sure I can even write a novel about how much I hate kidz bop.

Terrible singers covering terrible music. There really is no appeal besides explicit songs being more child-friendly

26 Meghan Trainor Meghan Trainor Meghan Elizabeth Trainor is an American singer and songwriter. Trainor's work has been recognized with several awards and nominations, including a Grammy Award, Music Business Association's Breakthrough Artist of the Year accolade and two Billboard Music Awards.

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's pretty and her voice is good, but her song "Dear Future Husband" gives basically this message: "if you want me, you need to sacrifice yourself for me, adore me and give me all I want, because otherwise, it means you don't love me". That one song annoyed me. - redhawk766

Your not smart what about vodka yellow have you even heard it crazy the first few were good on the list then with nicki minaj

She used to drug and rob multiple men as a stripper. Her entire career is based off controversy and all her fans are just some teenage boys who only listen to her because they think she's hot. Literally no one listens to her music for the lyrics, rhymes or even the actual sound of them. Oversexualised garbage that has redeeming qualities or reason to exist. - 7Grandad

No talent at all. Cannot sing, cannot play an instrument, cannot write music or lyrics. Most of all a low life piece of horse dung. Takes credit for others hard work and talent. Completely brainlessly stupid. Just like his fat assed wife.

I don't know why Rolling Stone is praising Kanye for his latest release. Then again, Rolling Stone is giving praise to alot of "artists" that can't sing, play an instrument, dance, or even perform live. This summer I'll be sure to spend my hard earned cash on a ticket only to watch someone lipsync to the album I already own. Oh wait, I wouldn't ever buy an album by one of these so called "artists". In fact I wouldn't download any of it either. - michaelhughes

This dude is just so full of himself. And his music is just terrible, but then again, it's rap so that's not surprising. Like every other rappers, he talks about gangs, money, sex, drugs and how good he is. Pathetic.

He is NOT the "number one rockstar on the planet."

The group signed a joint record deal with Simon Cowell's label Syco Records and L.A.

A bunch of talent-less unattractive twits if it wasn't for x factor, their so called good looks,rabid idiotic moron 6-15 yr old fans who think they are musically amazing,their ass mediocre Disney leftover garbage that is called music and their embarrassing ridiculous repetitive lyrics they would never be famous they'll be irrelevant in 2-4yrs anyways by the way that banana loving chick camila is unbearably annoying with her stuck up immature bratty attitude in fact their subpar music makes me want to cut off my ears and eat them for thanksgiving they are part of the reason why today's music industry is ruined beyond repair and why modern society is screwed anybody with a full functioning brain would quickly realize what they're producing isn't labeled music and its typical mainstream trash I would rather listen to music from 1970-2003 then to force myself to listen to their bull they call music

Normani and Camila Cabello improved after they broke up. - I80

How is Fifth Harmony below Slayer? If anything, Fifth Harmony just got together because of the media giants, while Slayer got together because of the bond between bandmates. Next, Fifth Harmony would become irrelevant in 2-4 years, while Slayer can pop up (Reign In Blood, God Hates Us All) and function with only two remaining members (Jeff died, Dave left) of the original lineup (Tom, Kerry).

They to be sexy it just make them look like prostitutes.

32 Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "Naturally". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sings in alto. She is best known for her role as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place.

How is Selena Gomez all the down at #173? Honestly, I thought more people would know she was so bad at singing.

Okay, she was a decent actress on Disney Channel. But of course, Disney just always wants to try to make every actress a singer, and it never turns out well. Listen to her album Stars Dance. Her voice has been autotuned to such extremes that it hurts to listen to her. It sounds like she's singing in a tin can, and her voice is so emotionless and metallic. God, this girl needs to at least be in the top 15. - mehzcookie

I think she's beautiful but Please don't let her sing again

Worst singer ever. You should be in top 1!

33 Pitbull Pitbull Armando Christian Pérez, better known by his stage name Pitbull, is a Grammy (and Latin Grammy) winning Cuban-American rapper, songwriter and record producer.

Pitbull is even worse than Meghan Trainor or Kanye West. He cannot, he cannot rap. He is just talking. I don't know any of his own songs but he has been a guest artists on many artists - usually Jennifer Lopez. 99% of those songs are awful and pointless. Artists use him when they make an awful song they want to have success with. Some people consider Pitbull cool because he has no talents in music but he is still included on so many music videos "famous" artists who have lost their fame. Some people consider thoe songs good because it has Pitbull - the guy who is cool because he is on those songs although he has no talents or hard work. Sometimes he wears glasses and sometimes not. Only good song where he is included is "Rabiosa" by Shakira and it would be better without him.

All he does is sample music, no originality. We shouldn't allow people like him on the radio to begin with.

Want a Pitbull song? Then make one yourself. It's easy:
1. At the beginning, screech your self-entitled "Mr. Worldwide" even though you're not really that worldwide, and even if you are, make sure it annoys those who listen as much as possible.
2. Have someone else sing the most important parts for you... and admit to yourself, they're the most pleasing part.
3. Mumble Spanish words. List at least 5 or 6 cities from all around the world. If you know any woman, ask her to have sex with you in the most insulting way possible. It always goes best if you have a terrible accent.
4. Use broken English in some lines. It's bound to brainwash the receivers.
5. Yell "dale! " every time you end your part, or better, sentence.
6. Make sure you keep the same rhythm of rapping at every song. It's okay to twist it a little, but make sure it stays at least in the tiniest way similar.
7. Don't forget to open your parts with a looping and highly irritating "wo! "
8. Your music ...more - redhawk766

Why isn't she in the top 10? Her music is largely responsible for fuelling white nationalist terrorism in the USA. Her lyrics promote killing people and treating anyone that is not white and Christian as savages. Literally empowering the pro-theocracy Christian right.

A singer that mooches off a reality show. No thank you

She should be higher. She is a hardcore racist after all

Words cannot describe how much I hate this white supremacist lowlife

Ha ha he dead lol

Excuse me? All you people are so biased. You're judging him based on his past, really? Uh... first of all, those were allegations so you can't really prove that he was a bad person. Second, the ALLEGATIONS against him have nothing to do with his music. And third, he was making up for past mistakes. He really was becoming an inspiration to people everywhere. His music sent a message and many of his songs were deep and emotional. Stop talking crap about him. He was a role model and he died too soon. Another example of how the worst things happen to the best people. Try to have some respect, will you?

He's the best and if you disagree your karma should be negative

He's too emotionally and is manipulative. - AlphaQ

Get her higher. NOW. If you don't think she's actually that bad, well you haven't looked deep enough into her songs. Here is why Ariana Grande is the worst "music artist" ever.

Alright, so first of all, all of her songs are familiar in someway. Every song of hers constantly repeat the same lines at least three times, then another song, then repeats that twice, and/or they use the same beats, and/or they use repeated clapping. Why can you not at least use creativity, Ariana? Tell me that.

Second of all, she CANNOT SING. She just autotunes her mumbling voice, and even with that, she cannot sing on key, or she still sounds like she mumbles, especially when she tries to sing extremely high notes.

Third of all, her songs are extremely repetitive. I've already mentioned it, but each of her songs has a chorus that repeats the same line at least three times. And her beats? Well, they are just the same notes put on repeat. Her voice, well she uses the same notes ...more - Bammer73

A lot of people think Ariana Grande is hot. Shut the hell up and go play with a bandsaw. She is no better than any of the other on this list, which, I must say is remarkably accurate, and, like the others, is also auto tuned. For the stupid, closeted, self hating semi retarded dickheads jerking their way through fantasy after fantasy about her, get a damn life and listen to her music without thinking about her not so large tits. Her music is a joke. Seriously, compared to her music, I would rather listen to Chinese food a million times over than listen to this crap on the radio again. this is a prime example as to why I never listen to the radio anymore. There are few good songs on the radio, and when they do appear, every once in a blue moon, they are spoiled by ads, songs by idiots such as this, and retarded radio presenters who massacre what is actually music. I am not kidding. the other day I heard some idiot on a commercial station condemning Melodic Death Metal for being self ...more

He's not bad. I like his music. If Eminem got addicted to each of 50's songs he listened to, that proves that he should be one of the best artists of all time.

He's the best rapper currently next to em everyone else is just terrible.

Lyrics Are stupid and pointless, all he's doing is talking about how "gangsta" he thinks he is. These stupid kids that think he's "good" need to listen to metal.

44 Avril Lavigne Avril Lavigne Avril Ramona Lavigne is a Canadian–French singer-songwriter and actress. By the age of 15, she had appeared on stage with Shania Twain; by 16, she had signed a two-album recording contract with Arista Records worth more than $2 million.

No way...she is the best

Avril Lavigne is a great musician, but she is slowly turning to mainstream pop. Deal with it, Her Hello Kitty song isn't rock to me

Weird Al also doesn't suck. Unlike this abomination that people call Avril Lavigne, Weird Al can actually play music. I am willing to bet you a million dollars that Avril Lavigne can't actually play the guitar. It still surprises me that He managed to make her song half decent, as the original still makes me cringe at its low quality.

Whoa, whoa! Why did you put Avril on this list? She's awesome. You just hate her because her songs have a lot of swearing in them. Lots of people cuss and swear! You probably have no idea why you hate Avril. Why compare Weird Al with Avril? Are you trolling or something because you hating Avril makes you look like a judgmental freak. Just because Avril looks like a punk rocker doesn't mean that she's bad. Judging people by what they look is pathetic reasoning and only proves that you're not smart.

My opinion of PSY has gotten worse and worse the more songs I listen to from him. Gangnam Style made me iffy about him, then Gentleman came out and I felt a sense of PSY not trying as hard, then he went all-out American with Hangover, even brining Snoop Dogg along, and after that I was convinced he was one of the worst artists of all time. - WonkeyDude98

His songs are so boring. - Misfire

Drake is pants on head retarded. Seriously. The guy is grunting about the same stuff every song. And what the hell is that disgusting noise spewing forth from your pie hole? Are you trying to sing? Because to me, it sounds more like a Death Growl. If you are trying to Death Growl, then give up making stupid rap "songs", and make your own death metal band, so that I can abuse you there. That, or kill yourself with an 8 ball of cocaine, assuming you haven't already become resistant to O. Ding on drugs already.

This dude is a poser though all he does is complain and said that he grow up with a tuff life. Drake you are a Jew from Canada who have a middle class life, and you was on a teen show called Degrassi and you was making such a good amount of money too. Also your own mother have such a decent job taking care of financial problems and you also. Unlike rappers like Eminem, Biggie, Too Short, 50 Cent etc. You are a fake.

Admitting to pedophilia is far worse than singing about sex. Period.
