Worst Rock Bands of All Time

The Top Ten

Nickelback Nickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, Canada. The band is composed of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair.

Jonas Bros. Is not rock. But they suck nevertheless.
WHY IS RADIOHEAD IN THIS LIST?!?! Same with Nirvana, U2, Blink-182, The Beatles, etc.
Envious much?
Oh yeah, Nickelback sucks. If you see "Nickelback" and "innovative" in the same sentence, the words "is the opposite of" is between them, maybe some variation of words. 10 years of singles all sound the same.

I agree with Johnny_likes_rock. Blink-182 and Radiohead is good. How are they bad?

Nickelback is the punchline of music. Everything about them is a joke. They try so so hard to try to be cool and that is why they immediately fail.

That being said, why are good bands like blink-182, rolling stones, queen, mumford & sons, pink floyd, and such on this list?

I don't even know why I'm bothering with this top-ten website (this site sucks, reason being it's just a popularity contest) but I'm bored. Anyway, Nickelback sucks, their song Rockstar is probably the worst song I've heard (in it's entirety, I tried listening to that Brokencyde song but I turned it off) they only play power chords in their songs and when they finally tried a guitar solo (after 5 albums) it sounded horrible. Really horrible, like a kid trying to to play an 80's hair metal solo and failing, like a bunch of random notes strung together without any sense for melody or harmony. Moving on, Chad Kroeger is a awful lyricist. Want proof? How about an excerpt from their best known song how you remind me?

"Despite words in my head
Scream "Are we having fun yet? "

First off, words usually don't scream, words are screamed, voices scream.

The second line sounds awful because he tries to 8 syllables in a meter that is meant for 5, also fun was ...more

If it sounds awful try changing your guitar's tuning, they could probably be using a different tuning

Although "How You Remind Me", "Too Bad", "Never Again", "Someday", "Photograph" and "Far Away" are pretty decent songs, this band as a whole killed grunge and even rock music itself by relying on the genre's worst clichés and taking them to insufferable extremes. Chad Kroeger is one douchebag of a lead singer who writes misogynistic lyrics about women and the musicianship is just extremely bland. Also, they made one of the worst songs in history: "Rockstar". Need I say more?

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.

Laugh out loud, it's a known FACT that CLASSIC rock/metal listeners HATE Punk Rock/Pop Punk etc and pretty much any new generation band which is why they're voting for them. Jonas Brothers is who WE should ALL be voting for, not good bands like Fall Out Boy who worked very hard to get where they did, Jonas Brothers made it through Disney and don't even WRITE their own stuff. Fall Out Boy are a talented band with great lyrics, awesome guitar play and drumming. This band (? ) is pure crap.

I don't think that you realize that this band is not punk rock. This band is not even pop punk (which is understandably hated), Actual punk, Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, Bad Religion.. That's punk rock, not this pop group. - longlostdogofit

This is the most f'd up list on this website. First of all, none of the negative lists are great, but this tops the list. Yes, it does list most of the bands that are horrid, but half of these items should not be on here. Moreover, many of these bands are also listed on the counterpart of this list ("Best Rock Bands of all Time"). For example, Metallica, who should not be on this list and anyone with any musical understanding and knowledge would agree, are listed at #15 of the worst rock bands, whereas on the greatest rock bands they are #3. Where is the sense in that? But this list is mostly derived from the meaningless opinions of the imbecilic music listener who thinks they know what they are talking about, but when in reality, they are deluding themselves into ideas of false music realizations. These people should be prohibited from being able to express their opinions to a global audience.
To the following bands, I apologize for your presence on this list (only naming a ...more

Jonas brothers play instruments and they can sing but that doesn't mean they're pop rock. They are mostly popular because of their looks and all their songs that they don't write are pretty much about the same thing... The lyrics don't promote anything that would ever help listeners in any way. Also, other people are right, they didn't even work to get where they are, they got famous through Disney and they are so lucky to be so flexible with their career because of this, do they realize that? I don't think so.

"High heels, red dress, all by yourself, gotta catch my breath"-a line from one of their songs.

Okay, I don't even get why some people say they are rock. I hate the Jonas Brothers... Also I don't get One Direction can even be considered as rock. I can't even believe bands like Fall Out Boy, Blink 182, Black Veil Brides, 30 Seconds to Mars, Nirvana, U2, Radiohead, and Coldplay can even be on this list though. They all are awesome. Fall Out Boy is seriously one of my favorite bands ever. But Jonas Brothers should obviously be number one on this...

Creed Creed was an American rock band, formed in 1993 in Tallahassee, Florida. The band's best-known line-up consisted of lead vocalist Scott Stapp, guitarist and vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips.

Radiohead, Nirvana, U2, metallica, coldplay, Black sabbath, pink floyd, The rolling stones! The people who put these bands on here know nothing about music at all, don't you people get that it it is good to make up new sounds and be creative. These are some of the most influential and innovative bands of all time! Just because they are not your crappy justin beiber does not mean they suck

The lead singer sounds like if the lead singer of a 90's emo band got an anal probe and converted to Christianity. I'm sorry. Even Nickleback is better than them. I managed to listen to One Last Breath and he sounds like a constipated shark.

To be honest, they're not that bad. I just can't stand the crimes and law troubles Scott Stapp has got himself into over the years. And appearing drunk on game shows.

Creed never was and I fear never will be innovative just like nickelback the hypocritical fools

Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides is an American rock band currently consisting of Andy Biersack (vocals), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (guitar), Christian Coma (drums) and Ashley Purdy (bass), that formed in 2006 in Ohio. ...read more.

Black Veil Brides does not promote suicide, they don't at all. They are a wonderful band. If you don't like them, at least respect them.
THESE ARE QUOTES FROM THEM..
"You're not alone, we'll brave this storm. And face today"-Carolyn
"Never give in, never back down. When your life feels lost, fight against all odds"-Never Give In
"Suicide isn't cowardly. I'll tell you what is cowardly;treating people so badly that they want to end their lives. "-Ashley Purdy
"Dear suicidal teens,
Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Sincerely,
You have so much to look forward to in life. "~Ashley Purdy
BVB is an inspirational, wonderful, great band. You just can't realize it.
They save lives. Their lyrics are meaningful. Suicidal people have been saved by their music all over. Bullied kids have something that can bring them joy, their music and lyrics. Self harmers of people that use to have been helped, by their music and lyrics. Now stop following those ...more

They can be as great of people as they want, but if they can't write decent music, then they can't. Personality doesn't transfer into your music.

I try to accept all types of music, but I just couldn't do that with this band. When I first saw them on a poster at hot topic, I honestly thought they were girls. Plus the name threw me off. When I found out otherwise, It didn't really bother me... Just a little. What did it was when I heard one of their songs for the first time. I'm pretty sure it was called fallen angels or something. The lyrics were way to repetitive and didn't mean much of anything. The creativity wasn't there and it wasn't original.

Another thing, this list is so not accurate. For example, 30 Seconds to Mars is on this list, but at the same time its number 7 on the best rock bands of all time list. So if you're mad that your favorite band is on this list, take it lightly.

These guys tried to bring glam metal back to the mainstream by sounding metalcore-ish, but ultimately failed, and for a good reason. This genre will just never become mainstream again.

I really don't care about their image or whatever like everyone else here. I'm going to talk about their music. It's pretty generic. Like the Nickelback of metal. I cannot distinguish one song from another which is a problem when the band and many of their fans claim that they are creative. There's nothing creative about cramming as many cliches as you possibly can into a song. Then adding in a boring riff doesn't make it any better. Categorizing them as emo doesn't make any sense since emo music is usually much more creative and has much more interesting lyrics. I can't help but feel that people judge them way too much on how they look and don't even look into the flaws that lie within their actual music. So in conclusion I think that they are boring, not emo, but boring.

Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit is an American nu metal band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 1994. Their lineup consists of Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and Wes Borland.

I really like Nu-Metal. From Deftones to Linkin Park, I haven't found a single Nu-Metal band I couldn't rock out to, well that is except for most of Limp Bizkit. If you can believe it, they actually made at least one good album, there debut album "Three Dollar Bill, Y'all$". From the intro song to the very end, each song felt louder and louder, and I enjoyed it a lot. The problem is just 2 years later they had a drastic decrease in quality with the album "Significant Other". No more screaming, no more good riffs, no more good rapping. It just sounded like an angry white rapper surrounded by metal music in the background, and if you could believe it, they got worse with there next album "Chocolate Starfish and Hot Dog Flavored Water" which I consider the absolute worst album ever... Worse then any thing Nickleback could ever put out at their worst. It is just over 75 minutes of some of the worst songs you can possibly find. As for "Results May Vary" and "Gold Cobra" they sounded ...more

The other band members are talented, but especially people hates Fred Durst and the combination of rap and metal.

Even if Borland is kind of OK, Durst ruins everything. I mean, he says he listens to jazz and is a sentimental guy, yet his lyrics are violent and his fans are violent and his songs are violent. I mean, I LOVE Nu Metal, there is Linkin Park, Hollywood Undead, Papa Roach, but Limp Bizkit ruins the genre's reputation completely. I mean, not even Jonas Brothers are worse than Limp Bizkit, not even Black Veil Brides are, not even Creed is (and I REALLY hate Creed), not even Queen is. Limp Bizkit is the worst period.

Limp Bizkit... Just, why? Why does a band like this exist? Is their existence proof that God doesn't exist? Or maybe their existence is proof that Satan does exist? How can a band like this become popular and sell millions of records worldwide? How can a group that names an album Three Dollar Bill, Yall$ become famous and successful? How can a band name an album Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water and get it to debut at no. 1 on the albums charts? For Christ's sake, how can a band named LIMP BIZKIT (! ) become world famous?! How can a band consisting of an immature tool who thinks he's black and wear a backwards red baseball hat and a guitarist who dresses up in ridiculous and unbelievably stupid outfits sell millions of copies? How can a band make terrible, meaningless rap rock songs about absolutely nothing, and pass it off as heavy metal music? How could we, as human beings, allow this to happen? How could we, as human beings, allow a group of wannabe rappers who have ...more

This band should get a lot more hate. The only even slightly positive thing I can say about this god awful band is that Wes Borland is a decent guitarist, not good just decent. The lyrics are awful such as "I did it for the Nookie now you can have a cookie" What? And also they are rap rock If you are serious about being a rock band you don't rap or at least don't have the worst rapper ever and that's what they have in Fred Durst. I Hate Fred Durst, I hate all of Limp Bizkit they in my opinion are the worst band ever. And don't get me wrong I also really hate Nickelback, and Creed but to me Limp Bizkit sucks more than ever. And also why are amazing bands like Pink Floyd, Metallica, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Queen above this terrible, terrible band.

Stupid name, awful music, terrible lifestyle. I just love how they sold out before anyone ever hear of them. I wish more people would listen to real Rock & Heavy Metal than this noise pollution.

There goes screamo, then there goes pop, then scream again. Almost like every songs of them have the same lyrics like "OH MY GOD! ", songs like, "A Prophecy" and "The Final Episode". Really, they have no talents in song writing.

Absolutely awful basically straight plagiarism of The Devil Wears Prada plagues but worse with techno bits, when did this become post hardcore I thought that was bands like Thursday and At the Drive in

Sucks! My friend likes them I don't know why.

Blood on the Dance Floor Blood on the Dance Floor is an American scene duo currently consisting of Dahvie Vanity and Fallon Vendetta that formed in 2006. Former members include Jayy von Monroe (2009-2016) and Garrett Ecstasy (2009). All of them provided vocals to the project. ...read more.

Blood on the Dance Floor is the reason Hot Topic is still in business, while at the same time given a bad reputation. Blood on the Dance Floor is the reason D-list celebrities can find themselves allowed to break the damn law.
Blood on the Dance Floor is the reason suicidal teenagers find themselves turning to the "trendy emo" lifestyle.
Blood on the Dance Floor is the reason dull and crass phantasm are gussied up and sold as "unique and individual".
Blood on the Dance Floor is the reason the outlying social cliques of society are not seen as normal or sane.

Blood on the Dance Floor is a menace to society and the music industry. They are self-ruinous and, in doing so, represent those who seek to destroy any real chance of genuine talent being seen and appreciated. Their message is brutal and downright atrocious. They'll say to their fanbase, "What's the matter, boys and girls? Not feeling to good? World got you down? Well, don't use this ...more

Teenage girls are their biggest fans, and think this is cool, because their lyrics read like lines in a porno (a very bad porn movie) Their Youtube videos have comments like, "laugh out loud my dad caught me listening to this, and his jaw dropped! " That alone says everything you need to know about them.

The absolute worst band ever. Seriously, though, this guy just took every band that someone might like and put it on here. The majority of the bands listed do NOT belong here.

Absolute disgrace to rock bands. Hell, they aren't even rock! From the few songs I forced myself to listen to, this garbage excuse for music was just electronic trash with overly-sexual, drug-related and just overall disgusting lyrics. Not to mention, their lead singer (who sounds completely awful even with heaps of autotune) is a manipulative pedophile. I sincerely hope they've realized that no one cares about them anymore, and that their music takes no talent whatsoever to make and just sounds like retro video game music on crack. Absolute worst "band" I've ever heard.

Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American pop rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

To be fair they aren't even that bad, don't put them down just cause you don't like there music, it's their choice to do that. And people who fault them for being PUNK ROCK or POP/ROCK, you clearly can't see that both them names have the word 'rock' in them, stop wasting your time voting for these when the jonas brothers are so low down.

This list is so bad and full of hypocrisy. Everybody is like "why hate on (insert band here) for no reason" while they give no reason themselves.

And pink Floyd, queen, the rolling stones, the beatles? Some people must like the Jonas brothers.

BS on of the best bands I've ever heard. Patrick Stump, (Their lead singer), AMAZING! Go look his solo stuff up on YouTube

I don't really hate them, but they are way too hyped up. I don't find their singer very good, especially with the newer stuff (which I'm not even judging them on for the sake of my FOB-fanatic friend.) I just don't see what's so great about his voice. As for their songs, I don't feel like they're all that bad. Most are 3 to 5 out of ten for me. However, I don't see why they are so hyped up. There are MUCH better bands out there. I can't think of one reason why Fall Out Boy would stand out. Queen is one thing that I think most Fall Out Boy fans should love if they actually like the majority of their work and aren't afraid of liking an older band (if they are judging by age, I am sorry to say they should not have as big a vote.) David Bowie as well. If they're one of those fake fans who thinks they're so hardcore for liking FOB, try AC/DC, which is a phenomenal band. (Also, please don't be a fake fan. I would like Fall Out Boy a lot more if it weren't for people who think that liking ...more

Coldplay shouldn't even BE on this list. They are one of the most popular bands around and considering they write and play their own music is fairly good for todays music standards.

Whoever said compare them to Metallica should know that Coldplay is way better than Metallica

What's the deal? Coldplay is supposed to be one of the best bands.

Not the worst band, but certainly not the best. Worst bands on this list would be OneD and JoBros.

All right look, I am generally not one to hate on people because of opinions. Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, and I respect that.

HOWEVER, I literally cannot have any respect for anyone who would honestly call one of the greatest bands of all time "the worst band ever."

Coldplay have made more impressively beautiful music than any other band I've heard in my life. Everything about their songs just comes together in a way I have yet to see.

Chris Martin's voice is seriously the most beautiful thing ever, and fits perfectly with the rest of the band's fantastic instrumentation, and their lyrics contain pure, raw emotion that is impossible to match.
If you must be educated as to why Coldplay deserve nothing but positive reception, go an listen to my personal top 20 favorite Coldplay songs:

20. In My Place
19. Magic
18. White Shadows
17. Christmas Lights
16. Strawberry Swing
15. Shiver

30 Seconds To Mars Thirty Seconds to Mars (commonly stylized as 30 Seconds to Mars) is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1998. The band currently consists of brothers Jared and Shannon Leto.

Anyone who voted for bands like the beatles or queen or pink Floyd or the rolling stones have no musical taste these are all real bands who made real music. The Beatles were amazing songwriters and invented psychedelic rock and the "bubblegum pop" stuff was the popular music of that time and was still very good in my opinion. Queen had Freddie Mercury who had amazing range as a singer. The Rolling stones kept the blues alive during the sixties and are still playing today. Pink Floyd created genius albums that always told a story Just listen to dark side of the moon. Peace out.

The past 10-15 years have witnessed a boatload of U2 ripoffs. And no band ever ripped off U2 as bad as these guys. If I were Bono I'd outright sue these guys for even picking up musical instruments. Jared Leto prances about the stage and puts 13 and 14-year old girls (yep, that's the majority of their fan-base) into a trance-like state convincing them that he is Jesus reincarnated. Bono may have had a lot of charisma, but he didn't do that. Seriously. This band should be abolished and I don't care how "epic" Kings and Queens is. Just pick up a U2 Rattle & Hum tour video and you'll see what I mean.

30 Seconds to Mars may not be the worst band ever, when compared to Nickelback, One Direction, and a lot of the other bad guys on this list, but I just have to give them their punishment for being such copycats to such an ignorant generation that doesn't even know what U2 is besides "Beautiful Day. "

Get this: one of their songs, "Stranger in a strange ...more

They rose to international fame while touring with One Direction ...read more.

Why are good bands are above this poser band? This so-called rock band claims to be pop punk. They are not. Most (or all) of their fans are little girls who has no idea what is punk rock. The only reason why this boy band (yes, it is a boy band) is famous because of One Direction, a boy band.

They write songs about girls all the time (like One Direction). "She's Kinda Hot" is one of them. What kind of name is that? Really? And they're called a rock band. They have an album called She Looks So Perfect...

If they were so rock, then why do they tour with One Direction? And no, they are nothing compare to Green Day.Stop comparing them to Blink-182 or Green Day.

5 Seconds of Summer is a lame boy band who needs to stop making music for little girls.

If you want to listen to real pop punk, listen to Green Day, Blink-182, My Chemical Romance, and The Offspring. If you want to listen to true punk rock, listen to Ramones, Sex Pistols, Black Flag, and The Clash.

At least you had the decency to separate the punk bands from the pop-punk bands.

I cannot stand 5 seconds of Summer. They try WAY to hard to be like All Time Low and their little girl fans are convinced that they're the most punk rock thing in the world. It's gotten to the point where I have run into their fans at All Time Low shows. They have no clue what is going on and are scared because All Time Low shows are nothing like their One Direction style shows.

Please stop hating on 5SOS because of their fans! Would Green Day become a bad band if only girls would like them? No! So stop saying that they are making music for little girls! They are making music for themselves because that is what they want to do!

I'm a big fan of them and I'm still listening to bands like Nirvana, Blink-182, Green Day, Queen, Fall Out Boy and many others! I know what good music is and still think their song are amazing. And not all of their songs are about girls okay?!?!?! They are great musicians (yes, they play instruments) and write all of their music by themselves! Just stop hating in them for nothing!

And of course they are nothing compared to Green Day! Everything's nothing compared to Green Day! no one compares them to Blink-182 and Green Day except for the haters! And also stop comparing 5SOS with One Direction just because they were on tour together!

And just one more thing: it's clear that everyone who commented this knows nothing ...more

Falling In Reverse Falling in Reverse is an American post hardcore band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2008, signed to Epitaph Records.

Another lame post-hardcore/metalcore band that tried to bring glam metal back to the mainstream but obviously failed. They've also released some of the worst songs in rock history.

Don't kid yourselves, guys. I will gladly pay anyone who can explain to me why they are a good band because what I what I have heard from them makes me think a caveman with two sticks has more musical talent.

The instrumentals are fairly well. The instruments are usually well set in a way that makes the song catchy. The vocalist's voice is pretty catchy. Sure they can be considered "bop pop" in a sense, yet their sound has uniqueness. - 0w0uwu

So why do good girls like bad guys? I’ve had this question for a real long time

The Rock and metal industry has been unbelievably overstuffed with emo garbagecore like this. Where is escape the fate on here? Every time I talk to somebody and they say "I like metal, like Black Veil Brides" it makes me nauseous. And Why is Pink Floyd on here!?!?

Insane Clown Posse Insane Clown Posse is an American hip hop, horrorcore and rap rock duo consisting of rappers Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, that was formed in 1989 in Detroit. ...read more.

Insane Clown Posse is quite possibly the only band I have seen on tihs entire list that is worthy of the "Worst Rock Band" honor, and even then, they're more rap than rock.

This list is otherwise an indication that the voters have no taste in rock of any stripe. Metallica might be the most OVERPLAYED band on commercial radio (Mandatory Metallica, anyone? ), but Metallica, more than any other band during the 80s, made thrash metal a rock staple, and to call them among the worst just jars me. And to see U2, Nirvana, Queen, Kiss and The Rolling Stones in the top 10 only shows me that this poll has been hijacked by a bunch of idiots who don't know what rock is about. I'm guessing the voters probably think cliched no-talents like Theory of a Dead Man are cool.

This isn't even music. It's a bunch of pointless cursing and crappy rhymes with no flow. My five year old can rhyme better than this. My biggest issue is that they claim to really have a point, and yet they don't. And how the hell did the Beatles, Nirvana and Pink Floyd get on this list? Who makes these anyway?

This band is the sum of all that is retarded in this world. Have you ever caught someone trying to break down your door with a sandwich? You opened the door and saw them, you started to yell but then noticed the Insane Clown Posse shirt they had and said "ohhhh. " Yeah, that's the proof.

Insane Clown Posse's goal is LITERALLY to inspire idiocy in children. By spraying juice on their faces and dressing up as clowns. Reminds me of the kindergarten Halloween party.

The kind of band that frequently shoves 2 very short songs together to fill up the space of a single song, the kind of band that flip flops on their own issues, very repetitive. Basically, they're sorry for all the little children that died...unless they themselves chopped their necks. & do I even need to say that their voices aren't cut out for music?

WHY ARE THEY EVEN ON THIS LIST?
Do you people even know what music is?
They are so talented!
They are legends!
Your keypad must be broken Jstin Bieber lovers.

You make Linkin Park look bad. Stop making them look like the most overrated band in existence!

When I think of "talent" or "emotion" or "great lyrics" or "musicianship" I think of bands like Queen, Rush, Dream Theater, and even the Beatles, who, as a guitarist, I must say, aren't as musical as most people think. Hopefully this doesn't make me come off as a "Bieber fangirl" like you butthurt fans insult us with. (I'm not one). But anyways...

I don't think of Linkin Park as a complex band or the "greatest band in the world" like people call them to be, and...I don't say this on multiple occasions...But I don't see how anyone can.

Someone explain in full detail what is great about Linkin Park. I'll annotate for you all;

Lyrics: Lyrics don't mean anything, by that logic 2Pac and Lorde are the best "bands" in the world. And even so, LP is only unique in that regard because 2000s "rock bands" like Three Days Grace and Nickelback sucked at writing stuff, at least compared to LP.

Vocals: Either we have Mike or Chester. I won't say they're bad, but there are ...more

I just have two problems with what you said :
1. Lyrics are an important part of music, they add meaning, substance, a message or a story.
2. "When your best instrument is a keyboard, you're not a rock band."
- Well, ask ELP...

Who added this has serious problems. Linkin park gets too much hate on this site. If you don't like them it's your opinion, but you cannot say they aren't talented. The thing I dislike most is that someone says that their lyrics are meaningless and that they use autotune . Have you even thought on this before writing it? Their lyrics are among the best in rock/metal music, and the singers never used autotune except for a couple of songs. They don't deserve to be on this list.

People who say there are crap I think you people are jb fans
Happy to see LP last on this list muse, colplay, Green Day should not be ther

Brokencyde Brokencyde is an American crunkcore musical group from Albuquerque, New Mexico, founded in 2006. 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.

This is the only list Brokencyde deserve to be #1 on.

Quite possibly the worst idea ever. Screamo and hiphop mixed. enough said.

When I first heard this band I thought it was some kind of a joke. Now I wish it was.

How the hell is this band above Thirty Seconds to Mars! TSTM is actually good and Brokencyde is horrible.

They are actually pretty good if you leave out all the swears in their lyrics. I do not think they should even be on this list but if they had to be...

Oh my gosh guys this band is great! OK, the swearing not so much but still! Geez Louise, people, they are the same as angels and airwaves and totally do not deserve to be on this list.

How is this at number 11? They should be off the list. This is the best band ever and here is why:

-The band members did not get famous for their looks, unlike boy bands today. Besides, the only one even considered attractive is Tom, according to fans, the rest of the band members are not attractive.

-They influenced many bands in the future and revolutionized music, they changed music a lot. People claim it's Green Day, though I love both, Green Day brought punk back, but Blink-182 brought it to a new level that changed music forever. They kind of both did it actually, besides, when Blink-182 started in 1992, Green Day was still not big, so they were not influenced by Green Day. There would be no Sum 41, All Time Low, and Fall Out Boy, all these bands people love and know. Even Brendon Urie himself said Tom DeLonge influenced him.

- They have a variety of music, not all the songs sound the same. Does Wishing Well and Dysentary Gary sound the same? Nope. They ...more

Haha imagine voting for Nickelback or Black Veil Brides over Blink-182

Daughtry Daughtry is an American rock band formed and fronted by namesake Chris Daughtry, who was a finalist on the fifth season of American Idol. Their self-titled debut album was released in November 2006.

The same pattern of song very repetitive

The lead singer so ugly that Scorpion from Mortal Kombat said "Stay over there! "

Why is daughtry in this list? They have very good songs (over you, life after you, no surprise, crawling back to you... )

When your band cites Creed, Nickelback, and Fuel as influences, you're a bad band.

Attila Attila is an American metalcore band from Atlanta, Georgia, formed in 2005. Frontman Chris Fronzak started the band in high school and, not wanting to use typical death metal terms, adopted the name from Attila the Hun, which he came across in a book.

Get them higher.

THE HUH?

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 so-called rock band killed rock music. They are absolutely one of the worst bands of this generation or any generation. If you can't play rock music the right way, don't even bother trying to do so because you will only suck more.

You kidding me? Adam levine and his backup guys (because they are NOT band) should be #1. They once started out amazing with songs about jane and wont be soon before long, and then adam levine sold out and turned from a musician to generic pop star, I have no clue why he isn't solo, the rest of the band has no other purpose, they make absolutely terrible music these days and the only reason they are so huge is because of 40 year old moms who have a boner for adam levine

This band is a bit stupid cause they only care about the lead singer! Not the rest band members

Why can't they just bugger off somwhere and quit making non existant music?

Hollywood Undead Hollywood Undead is an American rap rock band from Los Angeles, California, United States.

Their second studio album, American Tragedy, was released April 5, 2011. All of ...read more.

Obviously you asses haven't heard American tragedy or notes from the underground anyone who thinks that Hollywood undead sucks needs to get shot.

Getting shot is a harsh punishment for having an opinion, but I completely agree - StalkingHeads

I'm scrolling through here and I'm seeing many bands who don't deserve to be here but when I saw this my heart stopped a beat. The fanbase for this band stretches from directioners to death metal listeners to Eminem fans. They have awesome masks and stage names and once you look past they're party songs they have some really badass and some of the most beautiful songs I've heard. And danny is the best vocalist I've ever heard

They are mostly good. And I like the stage names. And who gives a crap about the clothes they wear or their masks that has no effect whatsoever on their music so maybe just shut up about that

Whoever put this here was drunk or had seriously mental issues.

Boys Like Girls Boys Like Girls is an American pop rock band from Boston, Massachusetts. Formed in 2005, the group gained mainstream recognition when it released its self-titled debut album.

What is this band?

Some like boys too you know

I forgot this was a band

I'm sad that's where my family lives but if u suck then u suck

Poison Poison is an American glam and hard rock band that achieved great commercial success in the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s.

Poison is not a girl band! Poison shouldn't even be on the list! They're like the most successful group of the glam rock of the 80s1

People who like Poison (who the hell knows why) are the ones who dislike Nirvana because Nirvana put them out of the music industry. All Poison had was big hair and instruments that they didn't know how to use. I'm happy they're on this list.

This band is so cheesy

"Talk dirty to me." was great, like a Raspberries record on steroids. "Every rose has its thorn." was pathetic, like a Partridge Family record on heroin. That's all I have to say.

U2 U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin. Formed in 1976, the group consists of Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr. U2's early sound was rooted in post-punk but eventually grew to incorporate influences from many genres of popular music. Throughout the group's musical pursuits, they have ...read more.

They represent everything I hate about mainstream music. Crap vocals, crap musicians, and all about ego.

Hey Bono! I can scream like a whiny druckard into a microphone too! Doesn't mean I have any talent... And neither do you! U2 is seriously overrated GARBAGE! The only reason why they're popular is because everyone who listens to classic rock is an old, racist, sexist, homophobic conservative who lives in the middle of nowhere and probably has hearing problems. Anyone with a decent pair of ears hates this band with a passion.

The pinnacle of bad 80's music. Even worse than Boy George. I always changed the station when either of those 2 were on. I listened to Simple Minds, The Cure, Tears For Fears, Depeche Mode, and bands who were creative, intelligent, and talented. U2 was none of that.

There are very few U2 songs that I actually like. However, most of their very popular ones like New Year's Day, With Or Without You, and Where The Streets Have No Name, are my least favorites from the band. I do like Mysterious Ways, Gloria, Vertigo, Desire, and the song When Love Comes to Town featuring B.B King. In general, they are not the worst band, but far from the best in my opinion.

Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

You can't be serious. This band is amazing. Original. Great music makers. Come on people!

To be honest, I would be fine with this band, if only they weren't overplayed. They play this generic unoriginal cheesy mediocre garbage on the radio about every 2 hours or so every single day, and I just want to shoot my radio whenever I hear them. Come on people, their music is not that good, it's mediocre if not poor. There are way better modern rock bands that are getting overshadowed by this mediocre band, bands with way more originality and way less generic/cheesy lyrics. This band deserves it hate, people hate this band for a lot of the same reasons people hated Nickelback. Their music is weak, generic, cheesy, unoriginal, uninspiring, sounds more pop than rock, and most of all, get way too much radio airplay, just like Nickelback got back in the '00s. Nowdays, I'd rather listen to 4 hours of Nickelback than 4 seconds of Imagine Dragons, and that's saying something. So dear radio stations, quit playing this garbage.

Ok,to all of those who say they are "unoriginal" need to realise how difficult it is for any band to be original. We have had years and years of brilliant music and now modern music is considered dead because anything that people can call good music has been done and therefore bands now have to try their very hardest to create quality music. There are many musical artists that simply aren't trying, who are the real ones that deserve the title "Worst Band" and I just don't think Imagine Dragons deserves it. They obviously are trying to keep their music unique and their lyrics are meaningful but that is just my opinion and I respect the voters for having their own opinion.

If you are 12 and like soundtracks from your PS4 game this is the band for you.

Radiohead Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

Radiohead's electronic music shows that they are a great band being able to create great music from other genres besides rock.

Electronic music is what they wanted to do and if they did just what the fans wanted by just creating rock music then they would be selling out and doing it for the money which isn't the true spirit of Radiohead.

I don't know of any other band that has become so popular by saying so little. Behind their sound--which, if you consider bands like Swans, Pavement or even Aphex Twin, wasn't nearly as groundbreaking as reviewers have made them out to be--the underlying message behind it all just seems like: "everything sucks, don't try."

Radiohead are gods amongst mere mortals, they should not be here. They should be in best bands of all time lists

one of the most overrated bands of all time right along with queen
