I don't know why my sister thinks this band is punk real punk is the misfits with Danzig and this band is not good.

This is a young band like r5, but the reason why they are on the list is because I just can't stand them. At least they have a few catchy songs.

4 words green day copy cats they did a terrible cover of american idiot but they don't care about haters

This band makes me gag. Enough said.

2 The Vamps The Vamps are a British pop rock band consisting of Brad Simpson, James McVey, Connor Ball and Tristan Evans.

NO! They're one of my favourite bands! They shouldn't be on here!

Seriously. NO. Their alright but weird.

3 R5 R5 is an American pop rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 2009. The band consists of lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Ross Lynch, Riker Lynch, Rocky Lynch, Rydel Lynch, and Ellington Ratliff.

I know this should be 1 but these guys and the girl are teenagers. They are young and supposed to be stupid, but when you are young and trying to make songs out there that are just not catchy enough, A person like me will find this band very boring and lame. Yes they are talented, but the thing that gets me angry about this group is that they don't right their own songs. If You all are young teens and are putting out songs, at least put some effort to right the song. I know their are worse groups than this like BTR, but they are pop to me, other wise, BTR would be 2. At least they play their own instruments, unlike other teenage groups, but still at least try to right or help produce the song. Something the should do. That is probably why the don't chart on billboard. They are not interesting and they are lame. Also because their songs are very boring and cannot get stuck in my head for at least five minutes. That's their problem. If the can be. If they can be more interesting, have ...more

What R5 Should Be No1 Because It has The worst Songs (Stay With Me, One Last Dance, F.E.E.L G.O.O.D,If, Hurts Good And I Want U Bad)

4 Cody Simpson Cody Robert Simpson is an Australian singer, songwriter, musician, dancer and actor from Gold Coast, Queensland, who was previously signed to US record label Atlantic Records.

This guy is really overrated. I don't know what's the big deal with him.

I've never even heard of any of his songs

Wannabe JB who should be far higher than Twenty One Pilots, a group who performs with actual passion. - TheWiseOne

5 Ke$ha Kesha Rose Sebert (formerly known as Ke$ha) was born on March 1st, 1987 in Los Angeles, United States. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. more.

The fact that Ke$ha cannot sing makes me really angry. Her songs at not bad, hell some of them are really enjoyable, but she just can't sing good. The only time she really sang good was with pit bull for timber. Besides that, she never really sang great on her tracks, but her ideas are good.

How is Ke$ha rock?! The very fact of calling her rock just makes me angry!

Kesha is not rock. She is not a great singer. But I wish her the best. #freekesha - TheWiseOne

6 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.

Shes awesome I do like her music

Just like 5SOS, I can't stand her. The fact that she made a good few alright songs I the past puts her at 4.

7 Maroon 5 Maroon 5 is an American pop rock band that originated in Los Angeles, California. Before the current group was established, the original four members, Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick, formed a band known as Kara's Flowers in 1994, while they were still in high school.

This band is a total waste right now and still for some strange reason people still like them. They were a lot better back then than now. They were never perfect, but at least they made some decent songs back in 2004 -2010. After releasing the most overrated son I have ever heard in 2011, 'Moves Like Jagger', I stopped liking them. When Payphone came out, I Actually liked it. When they released One More Night, I hated them. Love Somebody and Daylight came out which weren't bad, but then came Maps. A song that I couldn't stand at all because of how popish it sounded. I mean, I know they stopped Pop Rock, but at this point the chorus was annoying. I listened to the song a little more, and it sounded better. The production wasn't bad, like always, it was the lyrics. Animal was released after and I hated it totally. Listening to it almost made me vomit once. Now I realized that the production was the best part of the song, but the rest of the song was garbage! The latest single from their ...more

I like them now. However, I do not think they should be considered punk. Now they are more just pop. Nevertheless, I love Adam Levine's voice and hope they continue to do well - TheWiseOne

I kinda really hate Maroon 5. If it wasnt for "she will be loved," Id hate them with a burning passion. Adam Levine's voice is so squeaky and high pitched and annoying. I wanna die when I listen to their music. I didn't even know they where Pop Rock. Their like a stereotypical pop annoying band.

Maroon 5 shouldn't be on this list. - RalphBob

8 Greek Fire
9 Selena Gomez & the Scene
10 Twenty One Pilots Twenty One Pilots is an American musical duo that is originally from Columbus, Ohio, who are best known for their songs "Stressed Out", "Heathens" and "Ride". Currently there are two members, Tyler Joseph (lead vocals, piano, keyboards, synthesizers, ukulele, bass and guitar) and Josh Dun (drums and more.

You can't really put them in the "pop rock" category because they're songs aren't meant to be poppy and upbeat. They do make some upbeat songs but they try to appeal different genres, yet they never really dive into pop. - 0w0uwu

Why are they on here!?!? They are amazing!


They are talented but if you want punk listen to sex pistols,misfits,green day,rancid,blink182 but they are good pop though

She stars as the young version of Chloe Goodwin in The Goodwin Games and as Maya Hart in the Disney Channel series Girl Meets World. She plays Jenny Parker in the Disney Channel Original Movie Adventures in Babysitting . (She) more.

The best thing for young artists to do is to wait until they are over 21, or no critic will really like them. Sabrina Carpenter isn't a bad singer, but her songs isn't any thing special.

I'm positive she is the WORST on this list. repetitive lyrics and NO rhythm, She is a Disney star and always will be!

Way too nasally and pitchy, has three songs I like but overall she's overrated and basic as a singer. Next please...

Not really a pop-rock artist, she is pretty much just pop.

She rose to fame in 2002 after winning the inaugural season of the television series American Idol, which earned her a record deal with RCA Records. Clarkson's debut single, "A Moment Like This", topped the US Billboard more.

Can you name a singer that is as boring as Kelly Clarkson (okay, Katy Perry). How can anyone like her music? It is boring and generic as hell.

Isn’t this the homophobic “trophy wife” from Wife Swap? 😂😂😂
