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?
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

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
Should be #1V 147 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

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

BVB is an inspirational, wonderful, great band. You just can't realize it.

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. - naFrovivuS
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 108 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

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.

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.
Get this to number one - KingSlayer93316V 93 Comments
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.
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?
They can rap. They made so many good songs and my whole family listens to them.V 45 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.
Everyone likes Coldplay? Blow it out your ass. There was a time that everyone liked Limp Bizkit.V 108 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
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
Quite possibly the worst rock act of all time, and that's saying a lot since Attila is a rock act too. - DCfnafV 18 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)
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.
Blink are 11th and Tokyo Hotel 12th?
Are you kidding me?
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
What this band is the best
I still don't know why I keep seeing them on "worst" lists. Probably because Jared Leto is such a conceited scumbag. Doesn't change the fact that they are one of the best rock bands to form since the dawn of the new millennium. And also, that guy can SING, man!V 30 Comments
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

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

I always wonder what's up with this site.. If its managed and voted on by monkeys.. Go watch their live version of 'bad' performed at wembley for live aid, 1985.. That's not something you'd see everyday..
The person that said U2 were a pop band he/she is talking through a hole in their butt holes. They are the biggest and the best band in the world, in fact the whole universe. I agree when that guy says they are legends. Best album, I have 2, The Joshua Tree and Songs of Inmocence. My favourite song Sunday Bloody Sunday. As someone else said the site is voted by monkeys that person has hit the nail on the head. So if they're is another bad word said about them, the heaven help them.

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.

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.

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

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
This and Limp Bizkit are perfect examples of how not to do rap rock, and the fanbase for both is absolutely terrible. - 3DG20V 30 Comments
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.
This is the lamest, dumbest band I've ever heard of. From crappy drum beats to random nonsense words jumbled together into a so-called song, this band is just an embarrassment to music. - modern_music_is_stupidV 63 Comments
This is the only list Brokencyde deserve to be #1 on. - KDS
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. - ellagos
I hate them too - KingSlayer93316V 18 Comments
What is this band? - OnyxDash
I'm sad that's where my family lives but if u suck then u suck - AutumnRobbins
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.
Never listened to them. - OnyxDashV 11 Comments
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
They're honestly worse than Nickelback. - CaptainMowzker
They're okay. - OnyxDashV 3 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.
Never heard of them. - OnyxDashV 2 Comments
No Doubt THE worst - Jetticus12
I like the vocals, but the songs suck
Mediocre at best, not great, not atrocious either though. I don't like how Gwen sings and the songs are bland, sorry, but this band is overrated when they are not really that special.
Never listened to them. - OnyxDashV 10 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?
PURE. UTTER. CANCER. - OnyxDashV 10 Comments
This band shouldn't be on this list bon jovi is awesome and this list is awful
WHO PUT THESE GUYS IN HERE DO THESE PEOPLE HAVE NO TASTE IN MUSIC WHAT SO EVER maybe 10 years olds are just retarded stereotypes who only care about ONE DIRECTION, Justin BEIBER, AND MORE and I'm only 11 and they are my favorite band who could vote them they are the best I HATE KIDS THESE DAYS NOT KNOWING WHAT GOOD MUSIC IS LIKE QUEEN, Led Zeppelin, BON JOVI, Van Halen, KISS kids just like popular instead of good and if one artist die from today I wouldn't care
Kinda of like you, seeing as you love all of those rock bands which were popular at some point? - DCfnaf
You are all idiots for voting this band. They only have 3 of the best rock songs of all-time (from one album I might add)
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
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
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
Seriously, one of the greatest bands of all time is above Twenty One Pilots who have terrible music and sound generic and bland? - modern_music_is_stupidV 67 Comments
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
One of the best bands ever
Rage Against The Machine basically created rap metal. Killing in the Name, Bulls on Parade, Wake Up, and Guerilla Radio are classic. This list is awful. Rage, U2, Limp Bizkit, 30 Seconds to Mars, Linkin Park, Nirvana, Rolling Stones, and Kiss in top 35!
What? Ok, this list is starting to get ridiculous - KingSlayer93316V 18 Comments
Whoever added CC should die.
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. - Duality
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.V 9 Comments
"Just a shy guy, looking for a two-ply Hefty bag to hold my love"... Says it all right there, honestly.
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 god
"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
Nirvana is awesome they should not be here
Nirvana is a great band and shouldn't be on here.
This is the worst list ever
They made some good songs, but I'm not a fan of them. Overrated grunge band. That's what they're. - Userguy44V 129 Comments
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.
What? They aren't even a rock band!
I absolutely hate big time rush. They are just some manufactured fake boy band. Come on they came from a T.V. show. They're just so... FAKE! - SammySpore
Rock? - AdamDestructorJr.V 12 Comments
The suburban white trash band. Annoying. Tries to be deep, and fails. The lyrics are cheesy beyond measure. They aren't rock. Or rap. Or hip hop. They just make me wish that their music would stop.
Complete posers. They are not even rock.
All I just know is that the song "Ride" is annoying, and many of their songs are forgettable. Just rubbish for suburbia.
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.V 35 Comments
Who ever even thought about putting patd on the list has problems
Good band, but pretty overrated.
PANIC! AT THE DISCO IS THE BEST BAND EVER! I love them
I can't call them a band when brendon is making music by himself - Th3Zm0nst3rV 19 Comments
What is this doing here? If you don't like them just don't listen to them... So simple
I think his gothic image and style of singing are both stupid. But on the other hand, he's a really nice and really intelligent guy who knows how the world works, and he's got some really smart lyrics and themes in his albums (my personal favorite albums are Holy Wood and Antichrist Superstar. Give them a listen if you haven't).
Overrated! The music is almost as bad as that ugly face.
He is not bad. Just different. - emmaricciutoV 36 Comments
They helped stop the cutting now I only drink bleach
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.
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.
There’s honestly no problem with pierce the veil, and that comes from someone who’s listened to all sorts of music from the last century. If you don’t like them much, check out Misadventures, it’s a much more mature sound than you’d find on selfish machines for exampleV 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.
They're okay. - OnyxDashV 4 Comments
Are you kidding me?! what the hell is this name!
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
What is this name? I already hate them - KingSlayer93316
what? - OnyxDashV 7 Comments
The biggest trolls in music industry. - MaxPap
It's on here twice. - Powerfultekin
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. - naFrovivuS
Never listened to them. - OnyxDashV 11 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
I smell bull about these guys being higher than Quiet riot.
They Killed Heavy Metal
Screw this band, they killed the heavy metal - VideoGamefan5V 3 Comments
The most overrated rock band of the last decade and one of the most overrated in history. "Sex on Fire", is a terrible song that never stopped getting played on radio or T.V.. "Only by the night", is a terrible album which someone added to my ipod. Worse still is that every non-rock fan adopts this band and pretends they like or have knowledge of rock music. People and the media only jump on their bandwagon because they are the only new rock band in recent years that have actually sold records in charts that are clogged with euro dance and hip hop fodder. I can think of 15-20 bands that are better than Kings of Leon that should be getting their acclaim. Kings of Leon aren't fit to carry their amplifiers.
This one is almost the only one that should actually be here. People were trded tbh to vote for metallica... Pff, st. anger death magnetic reload and load sucks but the stupid people don't see tht. - freezerman75
They are just AWFUL. This is by far the worst band on this list. Number 29? More like number 1. Worse than Bon Jovi, A7x, AC/DC, Guns N' Roses, etc.? I think not.
Can’t stand this band. Singer sounds like he is about to cry and the music sounds like radio filler.V 12 Comments
Once again, it's death metal, so I hate it.
Their song names are just plain retarded. "Open Human Head Experiments With Bleach, Lacquer and Epoxy", "Colonic Villus Biopsy Performed on the Gastro-intestinally Incapable", "Of Human Pride and Flatulence", "A Living, Breathing Piece of Defecating Meat".
If PETA had a metal band, this would be it.
Never heard of them. - OnyxDashV 3 Comments
