Top Ten Worst Music Artists


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Big Time Rush

They ripped off Song 2 by Blur and have no talent.

I thought the boys they chose for this band were so off. what I mean is I thought they weren't right for a boy band. and I really lost it when their movie soundtrack covered all six songs of the Beatles.

The show was stupid too

I mean come on, who put BTR on here, they are amazing, my favorite boy band still

42 The Chainsmokers The Chainsmokers

I hate them and their overrated music, started out as a lame copy of Calvin Harris, and now all they make is practically POP music (more like a crappy version of pop, because I like pop music)! I mean ANYONE can copy their annoyingly average remixing, have no respect for their bodies in every term possible, and act like stuck-up jerks! They don't have one song, since they're all trash, have no meaning and make no sense, and they have no flow. The beat's trash (it's basically them making synth noises in some songs, whereas in other songs it's pop while Drew is attempting to sing)! At least have the dignity to admit that you're not EDM producers, Drew and Alex. You're wannabes with no talent who think they're the best at what they do! Stop pretending to be EDM producers, you overrated snobs who also pretend to be frat bros. No one likes you except kids and people who don't know real music, preferring you over legendary EDM producers like ZEDD

One of chainsmokers songs made made hate todays music because selfie is all about bragging about the other girl chainsmokers ruin the spirit of todays so now I listen to metal because of this stupid band

Thanks a lot Chainsmokers you just ruined selfie for us

The majority of their songs use the (IV V vi) chord progression that you'd probably remember in 'closer.' But seriously, it's used in almost every song. - LowMiner50

43 Bruno Mars Bruno Mars Peter Gene Hernandez, professionally known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and choreographer.

The dude used to be able to sing. Now he records some trash, runs it through a computer a couple hundred million times until it sounds worse than Skrillex giving birth, adds a backing track, and releases it to the whole wide world, and makes millions, whilst at the same time my metal band put out an album that is critically acclaimed but sells so poorly that we barely have enough to pay off our recording company. I trying to make this sound as little like a lamentation of our poor sales as possible, but seriously, what is Bruno Mars' problem? The guy could actually sing at one point, now his music is worse than that of Rebecca Black, and that's not an easy feat. To Bruno Mars. enough with the crap. you used to be cool. now you suck more than a desperate ice addict mum trying to pay for the cocaine she's about to buy. Go buy yourself a private yacht, and sail into the Bermuda triangle.

Whoever put bruno on the list should die

Before "Locked Out of Heaven", he wrote decent music.

After "Locked Out of Heaven", he earned his spot among the worst.

But at least he's not Alessia Cara, right? Haha, burn her. - ojoy

44 My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.

What are they doing on this list? They are amazing. Save this list for the ones who actually deserve it.

All he said was they were amazing. He wasn't going over the top like saying that My Chemical Romance are the gods of rock.

Their really good better then all these other artists

They are actually pretty good, why are they on the list?

What the hell take them off

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

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.

Why are Fifth Harmony on here?
They're AMAZING!
They're better than half of what's out there as they're feminist!

One thing about these jokers they suck a 8 year old can make better lyrics

It takes true talent to be worthless, these guys have that talent... All I can say

I get they rap. But seriously they like to mug! - JDagger500

Y'all are TRIPPING over them they have some good songs but from my point of view they're just goofy

First Day Out, Tunnel Vision and every one of his "songs" ehich shouldn't even be considered rap. All he does is whine. - AlphaQ

49 Ellie Goulding Ellie Goulding Elena Jane "Ellie" Goulding is an British singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, born on December 30th, 1986 in Hereford, England . She is most well-known in the U .S. for her singles "Lights," "Love Me Like You Do," "Burn," and has been featured in other songs with Calvin Harris and others . more.

I liked her music a few years ago, when she made "Starry Eyed" and "the Writer". But over time, it seemed that her music has been commercialised somehow, and now she has unforturnately been added to the bland mixture of pointless pop pussies. Her songs such as "Burn" and "Love Me Like You Do", as well as her collabs with Calvin Harris, are clear evidence of that transition from her beautiful indie folk masterpieces to nothing but lame, boring trash. I'm not saying that I have anything against her. I don't. She is talented, she has a beautiful, amazing voice and she has the potential to create great music. It's just that the music industry has managed to mold her into another carbon copy clone like Taylor Swift and Rihanna. But that's just my opinion. I don't know about you.

The fact that people hate Love Me Like You Do when it's considered one of the best songs of 2015 shows something. This is the first year in a while where there isn't even one song that at least half of the listeners of the song like. Honestly, Ellie Goulding has one of 2015's best track records, even if it's mediocre. I disagree with her being on here, especially with her hits "Lights" and "Burn". - WonkeyDude98

Because touch me like you do is an awful song and 50 shades of grey is garbage for the ignorant masses

Why is she on the list and yet in the top 40? Ellie doesn't sing about sex or drugs or money, but actually about her life and childhood. Think carefully about who you guys are voting for. Also, why are The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Eminem, Michael Jackson and a lot of other legendary artists on the list? Seriously, I need an answer.

50 Mariah Carey Mariah Carey Mariah Carey is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress. She won 5 Grammys, got her documentary movie "Glitter" and also one of the biggest best-selling women in the music industry. more.

Her new stuff is just horrible and she can't sing anymore. Also she doesn't write her own songs and lies about it. - RnBLover

She was an amazing vocalist, in the 90's. Ever since she released butterfly her music went down in quality and so did her voice! - DaWyteNight

Why? She is an AMAZING vocalist and a good songwriter. Okay, some of her newer songs are not as good and her acting in Glitter sucked, but you can't be good at everything.

Good thing she's so hot, because her music is the definition of cringe!

Shake it off? The only reason I would listen to that is because her voice turn me on, but the song has zero musicality to offer. - RnBLover

51 50 Cent 50 Cent Curtis James Jackson III, better known by his stage name 50 Cent, is an American rapper, actor, entrepreneur, investor, record, film, and television producer.

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.

Was good when Sha money and Dr. Dre made his beats. When let of the leash and all his best ryhmes and hooks he worked years on were used up in his first albums we are left with nothing but pop culture candyman music with bad beats

53 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.

The soundtrack to a PSA about erectile dysfunction. These are guys are so boring that they can only appeal to braindead midwest soccer moms and the fedora-wearers among us.


54 Lil Yachty Lil Yachty

Little Yachty didn't even know what a CHELLO was. He confused it with a CLARINET! If you're in the music business, at least learn the darn instruments!

55 Tyler the Creator Tyler the Creator

Meh, I'm losing hope in him. I'm dropping my score from a 7/10 to a 5/10. - AlphaQ

Whoa, he's great. His freestyles are excellent.
The only thing bad about him is that album where a gnome is wearing a dress or whatever than album is called. Other than that, he's great. - AlphaQ

56 Carrie Underwood Carrie Underwood

Words cannot describe how much I hate this white supremacist lowlife

Honestly she is the worst. Country music sucks.

Boring, mediocre

Eh. - AlphaQ

57 Patrice Wilson Patrice Wilson Patrice Wilson is a Nigerian-American musician who is best known for being the writer and producer of Rebecca Black's infamous song "Friday". His music has been negatively received, due to poor writing and use of AutoTune.

Why isn't he higher up? You guys only blame the artists who sang the bad songs, not the producers.

58 Aaliyah Aaliyah Aaliyah Dana Haughton was born on January 16th 1979 and died August 25th 2001. She was a dancer, an actress and an R&B singer. She was born in Brooklyn, New York, raised in Detroit, Michigan and died at Marsh Harbour, Bahamas. more.

Absolute slut with zero talent and zero originality and her music sucked too. Weak childish voice and she was a slut who slept with everyone in the industry. - RnBLover

Complete whore who slept any and everyone.
Below average voice - only became a heavily promoted pop icon because of her willingness to have sex with any man that would or would not offer her an opportunity.

59 Kenny Loggins

Why is Kenny on here? - Skeptical_Silence

The King of the Movie Soundtrack. enough said.

60 Jaden Smith Jaden Smith

Not as talented as his father. Never was, never will be.
