Worst Rock Bands of All Time
The Top Ten
Jonas Bros. Is not rock. But they suck nevertheless.
WHY IS RADIOHEAD IN THIS LIST?!?! Same with Nirvana, U2, Blink-182, The Beatles, etc.
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? - KingSlayer93316
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?
Hands down the worst band ever. There is absolutely nothing to like about this woefully cheesy band. There albums comprises of generic tracks that sounds nothing different from one another.
Nickelback is not innovative, but they do have good songs. How You Remind Me and Photograph are two examples.V 159 Comments
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 list sucks and especially jonas brothers. Nirvana and the other great bands don't deserve to be here. fool!
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
I hate them, but this a a pop band, not rock. - Smash64V 148 Comments
I think the reason why most people don't like them is because they were totally and completely created by the media, for the media, if they had been self formed and wrote their own songs and music I'd at least give them at the very least my respect, even though I wouldn't like their music (assuming they'd be making the same music if they were self-formed even though I highly doubt anyone who was "in it for the music, man! " would be making this kind of poppy cliché music just to appeal to the mass market of twelve year old girls) I wouldn't call them "the worst band ever" but as far as my opinion is concerned they don't even qualify as a band, any band that is made by a big label formed for no other reason than to make money is not even a real band. Again just my opinion. I don't hate any of them personally, though I do hate their music, I'd hate that no matter who they were or what they were, I think what I really hate though is what they stand for which is that you can completely ...more
Well, I wouldn't say that One Direction is the worst band ever, mainly because there are a LOT of other horrible bands out there. They have only two good songs (I like a lot nu-metal/grunge/punk bands).
They don't write their own music, and they don't have a lot of depth in their songs, all it is is synthesizers and cheesy lyrics about girls.
Overall, the deserve to be around fifth place - Blair_Ball
These guys definitely get my vote on this, the truth is that they're only famous because girls find them attractive. If they weren't as good looking as girls say they are I'll bet they'd be home playing video games all day and wasting their lives. The part that most confuses me is that they got on this list at all, they are NOWHERE NEAR rock!
Their fans consider them as rock, but you are right, they aren't anything related to rock
I remember when this totally "fresh" band came out a few years ago. Everybody in school was talking about them and everybody had their opinion. All of the girls went ballistic over them while the "tough guys" called them losers and excuse my language "p******". Later when I was driving home I finally heard one of their songs on the radio. Then I realized it was another lame boy-band. Uggh. I have no clue how another group of supposedly hot boys got to become a great commercial band of today. It boggles my mind as to how these guys even became famous in the first place. It was during X-factor, a show where people try to show their talent but always a person that sings who should be on American Idol wins or comes close to winning. It's just another marketing scam so companies could get deals on a good contract. They were formed when Simon Cowell (who I have no beef with) combine the five rejects into a band. Of course in X-factor style, they came in third ...more
THEY SUCK! Only stupid teenage girls like this garbage. Most because of their looks, and the fact that they sing about love. They don't even write their own songs, so there are no feelings behind the music, it's all about the money -. -V 349 Comments
Who the heck voted for Pink Floyd? They're one of the greatest bands to grace the Earth.
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$". From the intro song to the very end, each song felt louder and louder, and I enjoyed it a lot. The problem is just 2 years later they had a drastic decrease in quality with the album "Significant Other". No more screaming, no more good riffs, no more good rapping. It just sounded like an angry white rapper surrounded by metal music in the background, and if you could believe it, they got worse with there next album "Chocolate Starfish and Hot Dog Flavored Water" which I consider the absolute worst album ever... Worse then any thing Nickleback could ever put out at their worst. It is just over 75 minutes of some of the worst songs you can possibly find. As for "Results May Vary" and "Gold Cobra" they sounded ...more
The other band members are talented, but especially people hates Fred Durst and the combination of rap and metal. - 05yusuf09
Limp Bizkit... Just, why? Why does a band like this exist? Is their existence proof that God doesn't exist? Or maybe their existence is proof that Satan does exist? How can a band like this become popular and sell millions of records worldwide? How can a group that names an album Three Dollar Bill, Yall$ 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
God I hate Fred Durst's voice! - Userguy44V 64 Comments
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
Radiohead on this list?
Who the hell voted for them?
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 is by far the greatest rock band in my opinion My own prison... Human clay and weathered...V 32 Comments
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.
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.
They turned my friend into a paranoid, fashion freak who is always concerned that he doesn't look like the main guy (Andy I think that's his name)V 109 Comments
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.
Um... is this even rock?V 95 Comments
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.
Quite possibly the worst rock act of all time, and that's saying a lot since Attila is a rock act too. - DCfnaf
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 inV 18 Comments
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. - Tobzz
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
This is actually a pretty good band. Fight me, haters - KingSlayer93316V 119 Comments
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.
Compare them to Metallica. James has more musical genius than Coldplay combined - lilrocketman
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
18. White Shadows
17. Christmas Lights
16. Strawberry Swing
14. Lovers In Japan
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 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.
They can rap. They made so many good songs and my whole family listens to them.
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?V 44 Comments
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.
30 seconds to mars are a pretentious and their music is like "look at us were so cool and were serious" it's actually worse then when Nickelback tries to be serious.
If a band makes crappy pop music, can you still call it a band? anyways...these idiots suck
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.

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.
Not rock. - Userguy44
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

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.
Woah woah woah. RADIOHEAD? Radiohead shouldn't be anywhere near "worst bands" lists. They are one of the most innovative bands to grace the earth, and they're still going on today! They just came out with a new song, and it's pretty good. - galaxyfox

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Ehm have you noticed that mumford and sons aren't even rock they're one of the best folk indie bands that's wht they are
Pop-folk which has convinced fans that it's real folk. Very little about their music is actually original, as anyone familiar with folk music would know. And their songs really do all sound the same.
They're great at what they do, but if you were expecting rock, they weren't for you. That is until their latest single ("The Wold", aka. "Wandering for Days"), which could almost be mistaken for a Foo Fighters record.
I've never actually heard Mumford and Sons, but I voted for it to push it above Queen. What a disgrace to have arguably the greatest, most musical band ever on 23rd place of the WORST bands-ever-list.V 11 Comments
Dragonforce is my favorite band not only because I love their songs but also because they take many different styles of metal and mix them to make what they call extreme power metal. And they make it work. They are very energetic, harmonic, and overall a great band. Even after the departure of their former vocalist ZP Theart, Dragonforce has kept the style they are known for but made it better. Their songs are very well put together and organized each part flows smoothly into the next. People commonly think that they speed up their songs in studio. This is not true I've seen them live and they play at the exact speed they do on their albums and put on one hell of a show. So can someone please explain to me why they are on the top worst rock bands list?
Remember every favorite metal song you've ever had? Well speed them up to somewhere near the speed of light and you've got Dragonforce's entire discography.
DragonForce is cheesy, but in no way would I call them bad. They have very good instrumentation and much of their discography is pretty solid from what I've seen. Although I can argue that there's better Power Metal bands. - CrimsonShark
Dragonforce speeds their stuff up in the studio and used to show up to all of their gigs drunk as heck, and thus unable to play their riffs even remotely close to the speed on their records. That being said, they are getting better and showing up to their concerts able to play most riffs now... and they don't show up to their own shows drunk anymore. - ThatoneMetalheadV 15 Comments
What is metallica, pink floyd, Guns N' Roses, nirvana and worst of all my favorite band the rolling stones dooing on this list? This lame band should be much higher here... It is equivalent to the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber and other ugly and commercial crap like lady gaga... This is pathetic.
No. No-no-no-no. Tokio Hotel definitely shouldn't be in this list. The list is about the worst rock bands. That's right, ROCK. But can anybody say that this crap is rock? (cricket chirping)
Blink are 11th and Tokyo Hotel 12th?
Are you kidding me?
They are not even a ROCK band to begin with so I don't think they should be included in this list.
This list is entitled 'Worst Rock Bands of All Time' after all but apparently the vast majority of people who visit this site can't even read.
Having said that, their 'music' undeniably sucks though and I will tell you why: incredibly cheesy teenage-oriented lyrics, dull sounding guitar tones and extremely poor technical skills by the rest of the band. They don't even try to write good music because their fanbase is composed almost exclusively by dumb teenagers with very bland musical tastes and they are totally OK with this very fact.
All these facts only support the idea that Tokio Hotel are nothing more but a bunch of losers who only are probably in it for the money and fame.
Rage Against The Machine should not be on here, they did something that was never done before. They truely infused Rap and Heavy Metal. Morello's solos are amazing
I have seen a lot of people hate on this band because it's too left-wing for them. Also, some don't like Tom Morello's DJ-style guitar solos.
So cringy to put rap into rock.
What? Ok, this list is starting to get ridiculous - KingSlayer93316V 20 Comments
Disagree.I usually hate emo music(Which is usually either Pop Punk that appeals to emos or Post Hardcore that appeals to emos) but BMTH is decent - DarkBoi-X
The worst music (if I can even call it that) I hate how they just scream all the time, it is not a talent to scream, especially when you can ruin your vocal chords that way.
I think the keyboardist is whats saving this band in all honestly in songs like Throne, or Can you Feel my Heart, otherwise were forced to have our ears bleed from the wannabe metalcore/deathcore singer Oliver Sykes
The singer's voice is one of the most pretentious and painful to listen to. His idol is probably Yoko Ono.V 12 Comments
This band shouldn't be on this list bon jovi is awesome and this list is awful
This defending fanbase here just proves why it is bad
Edit: I meant that such people listen to it who think everybody who does not like the artist they do are 10 year old "retarded" who listen to One Direction. It annoys me how if you don't like a classic rock band, you are always going to be badged as a Belieber without the slightest previous mention of any pop artist. - Alkadikce
Let me guess. Bon Jovi is on this list because they're too cheesy? - Userguy44
They are not bad - CaptDeadeyeV 36 Comments
Wondering about a band that makes Suicide Silence sound like actual silence, Black Veil Brides sound like Ozzy Osbourne, Asking Alexandria sound like Queen, Bring Me The Horizon sound like Iron Maiden and Emmure sound like Rage Against The Machine, better check this stuff out. YouTube their entire album nevaeh (which is probably the dumbest album title since it is nothing but 'heaven' backwards) and listen to 'surrounded by silence' ONLY AND ONLY IF you wanna be tormented 4 life. This deserves to be in top 5. Why hasn't it made it there yet?
Totally sucks! This SHOULD MAKE IT TO THE TOP TEN. I'd rather listen to Bring Me The Horizon than this piece of crap which people don't even know exists.
None of these bands are bad lol, except for Attila and this one.
These people should have made it to the top five already. They make Asking Alexandria look like a genuine non scene rock band and just are a deathcore version of BOTDF and Brokencyde.V 2 Comments
"Just a shy guy, looking for a two-ply Hefty bag to hold my love"... Says it all right there, honestly.
"My heart is bound to beat right out my untrimmed chest"
Man, these lyrics are so deep and meaningful! Okay, cutting the sarcasm, is it any wonder why people turn away from Train? They're too damn cheesy! - CrimsonShark
I'm forced to hear "Bruises" at least twice a day. It's on at work. It's on at the gym. It's on in the car. I hear it walking through the grocery store. This has been going on for several months and its slowing eroding my soul. May the members of Train be struck with debilitating rheumatoid arthritis.
Oh my god I thought I was the only one who thought train was god awful I'm glad I'm not the only one. I mean "honestly hey soul sister" good godV 10 Comments
Dis list is a fraud... Guns N' Roses shouldn't be here in dis list
WHAT IS IT DOING HERE?
Crazy peoples... Guns N' Roses is the best rock band ever, in my country Indonesia they are influence so many rock band
They're not that bad. - Userguy44V 66 Comments
The worst part is being a fan of the actual band called Rush from Canada and people think you mean this trash heap. - CaptDeadeye
Big Time Rush suck. Their music is just bubblegum auto tuned pop rubbish. All they do is whinge about relationships and breakups. They are about as entertaining as Gary Glitter and David Icke trying to kidnap little kids and take them up to Neverland. They have their own T.V. show and they are only around for money. They only want to sleep with as many girls as possible. They have brainwashed my sister and brother. Let me tell you what true music is: Pink Floyd, Rush, Nirvana, Queen, AC DC, Genesis, Deep Purple, Coldplay, Muse, Green Day, Linkin Park, Motörhead, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Metallica. Your BTR will fade away in time just like One Direction.
Rock? - AdamDestructorJr.
What? They aren't even a rock band!V 13 Comments
So what that Vic is hot? They're a horrible band, and the lead singer(Vic) sounds like he's either been kicked in the nuts or like he's about to break into tears about something minor. Also, the screams are mediocre. They make Limp Bizkit look like Black Sabbath.
They helped stop the cutting now I only drink bleach
What PTV are awesome
Pierce the veil should NOT be on here. The lyrics they have are meaningful and help save lives.
Yes they should be on here, their lyrics are not meaningful and since when has their music saved lives? - AdamDestructorJr.V 6 Comments
These guys are terrible. They leader singers voice sucks my will to live. Sounds like a bitch instead of a man
I'm sorry, but I just can't stand this band.
Fun are just depressing. Nate Ruess' voice is terrible. Get this band to the top and also get Muse off this list.
I can't even believe I used to listen to them. What. The. Hell. Was. I. Thinking?!V 4 Comments
Kiss is the hottest band in the world, how could it be the 16th worst band!?
The original members wearing the makeup back in the mid 70's... NEVER! They melted your face off and kicked your ass! I'll admit... I'm not too fond of their lineup that they have today, but I'll never forget going to their concerts back in the day... They were amazing! Their concerts were unbelievable! Afterwards... You were so definitely that your hearing was off for 2-3 days, they shouldn't even be mentioned let alone be on this list what MAN seriously!
The only thing I have against Kiss is Gene Simmons' tongue wagging. other than that I think they're pretty good - CaptDeadeye
A bit overhated I think. - Userguy44V 49 Comments
I had to find a band that was relatively bad so I could say this: THIS IS THE STUPIDEST LIST EVER MADE! I mean seriously Nirvana? Red Hot Chili Peppers? U2, Guns n Roses, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, DragonForce, THE ROLLING STONES, and Green Day? THIS IS RIDICULOUS! Those bands are some of the best bands not the worst and anyone who denies it is lying to themselves. Next its gonna say the Beatles! Someone would die if they said that. Even if I don't like a band, I respect them enough to know they're talented (if they are)
I hated them when I fist heard their repetitive song "Tonight Tonight". the song doesn't actually have any REAL meaning... first he's singing about dancing in Hollywood, and then talking about a tattoo he got?
They should definitely be in the top 10. The song "Tonight, Tonight" is so boring and unoriginal. Besides, how is Rage Against The Machine above these guys?
How are they even really considered rock and why are there so many good bands on here like rush mettalica and heart and well the list goes on they are responsible for every little peice of rock and metal today and really half of the bands on here shouldn't be considered rock they should make a new genra called crap. HahaV 10 Comments
They're honestly worse than Nickelback.
Why are good bands like Queen and Nirvana on the list? Bands like Hinder deserve to be on the list not those legends.
These guys should trade places with Nickelback. - thomwim
I listen to a ton of bands, and hinder is my absolute favorite. don't put them on this list!V 3 Comments
They are the best. Their lyrics help with things like suicide. If you only hate them because of their radio songs, than listen to their other songs. They are much better.
These wannabe emos are trying to copy My Chemical Romance they need to stop. - Emofag
They're decent.Just their fanbase mostly consists of whiny emos that fake depression on tumblr. - DarkBoi-X
Zoe Winski likes the band so I hate it.V 38 Comments
Whoever added CC should die.
I'm so tired of seeing metal bands on this list when it's meant for rock bands. I know the two genres are similar, but still. Aside from that, I personally don't like this band, but their guitarist and bassist are pretty good. Plus, there are worse bands out there.
I like death metal, but for some reason I disliked this band instantly. They seem trying too hard to shock, and I wish the vocals were slightly clearer.
I mean look at some of their song titles. This band tries to hard to be shocking and doesn't try hard enough to make music that you can actually listen to when you're NOT on a murder spree. - DualityV 9 Comments
Why do people like them? They're average. I'm sorry, but I cannot find anything redeeming about these guys. I cannot stand David Draiman's voice (I'd rather take Dave Mustaine over this guy) and the production on their albums is so lifeless and cluttered.
These people are to Metal as McDonald's is for quality food. Not good and made to sell. - wrests
They think that Slayer are nazis. Slayer is the greatest band of all time. Disturbed just sucks so does their music. If I hear a disturbed song I will immediately find a Justin Bieber song and listen to it. Slayer for life - lilrocketman
They aren’t bad. Hating on them is just the elitist thing to do
Really? I am about to leave this list. Why is this here? Stupid trolls - KingSlayer93316V 12 Comments
Ugh... next - CaptDeadeye
Who ever even thought about putting patd on the list has problems
I can't call them a band when brendon is making music by himself - Th3Zm0nst3r
Pretty good band - KingSlayer93316V 20 Comments
They’re not bad - KingSlayer93316
This list is very bad.. 3 doors down is a good band. - jbsucks11
Worst bridge ever in the song "Loser" pointless, doesn't match up with the rest of the music.. Dumbass guitarist just wanted to go off with lame ass solo
They're okay. - OnyxDash
I can't believe Led Zeppelin is ranked higher than this crap
Hah, this is the second time they've been put on this list
Yeah so X-Japan is 87 but this crappy band is lower?! What the heck is wrong with people?!
This band is on here twice lolV 2 Comments
I don't know them but why on hearth would you put that name to your band?
I laughed at the name of the band, lol - KingSlayer93316
This is the greatest band name ever
This is an actual band? - OnyxDashV 4 Comments
What is this name? I already hate them - KingSlayer93316
I get that they are supposed be a comedy artist and to be fair they sound pretty funny but most of the time they just sound like utter garbage - christangrant
Are you kidding me?! what the hell is this name!
Never heard of itV 7 Comments
Ah Cradle of Filth, saying just the name leaves a after taste of pukes. You didn't just ruin one of the best songs in the history, Hallowed Be Thy Name, or one of the most succsefull bands of all time, Iron Maiden, NO NO you had to take it even further didn't you? You also ruined Ozzy, Slayer, The sisters of mercy and many more. And oh god your original songs are even worse, they made my ears bleed! So having Nickelback on number 1 was a mistake, because they made some good songs, while Cradle of Filth is a scum to Heavy Metal and has never ever ever made a good song. - MUSHROOM
They Killed Heavy Metal
Screw this band, they killed the heavy metal - VideoGamefan5
