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.
Radio head is terrible. Same with Blink-182. Nickel back is the worst band ever
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
Honestly they are a little over hated on, I mean, bands like 1D and Blood on The Dance Floor exist. - Johnny_likes_rockV 141 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
This band ruined Pop-Rock.If you want good Pop-Rock listen to Twenty One Pilots or Fall Out Boy.Jonas Brothers sucks and I don't even know why I am ranting on them because nobody gives a crap about them anymore.The last time they were relevant was in like 2012,I think.Correct me if I'm wrong.-DarkBoi-XV 145 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
"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. - 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.
No they are amazing.They have anti bullying messages and try make cool music.Just listen to Knifes and Pens as well as In the end and no I am not emo.Yes I like dark colours and black is my favourite colour and yes I like My Chemical Romance and FOB and TØP(Not really emo but a lot of emos like them and they have emotional music) but I hate makeup and my hair doesn't cover my eyes.I also prefer EDM,Rap and Alternative more than emo.-LitSavageV 106 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
Nu Metal and Rap Rock are good but this band sucks.Although I agree that this band is overhated Fred Durst still sucks.He just sounds like a person who just started rapping but thinks he is the most hardcore rapper so he tries to be hardcore but fails while blasting heavy metal music in the background.If you want a good Nu Metal band then listen to Linkin Park,System Of A Down,Rage Against The Machine or Korn.If you want good Rap Rock bands listen to Linkin Park,Rage Against The Machine or Hollywood Undead.-LitSavageV 60 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.
They're okay. - OnyxDashV 32 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.
Not even close to rock. Just awful. - Elijah_CookV 92 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.
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.
Radiohead rip-offV 103 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?
My sister could play better than this and she hasn't even been bornV 41 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
Everyone is saying that they aren't rock and that only 12-14 year old emo girls like them.They are rock they just have a more pop sounding tune than most other rock bands but these guys are pop-rock which is a thing and I'm a boy but I like them and there are other boys that like them but yes I am 12 what are you going to do? -LitSavageV 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
Their music got way better after 2012. Give their newest album a listen, and the difference between it and their first album is night and day. - Elijah_CookV 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.
They are 13 and blink are 12
People are crazy
This is the wannabe version of All Time Low and Blink-182 with a hint of One Direction. - gothictomboy66
I agree. They are clearly a boy band and not a punk band. I've listened to a few of their songs and they sound like they're from a typical boy band. - dingodile2603
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.
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.
One Direction fans tell me this is bad.LOL! - wriddhakV 60 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.
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. "

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
They are the BEST musical act the world has ever seen...
Why is this on here? Radiohead is ' awesome!V 24 Comments
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.
I'm assuming the same people who voted for Fall Out Boy also voted for Blink. Again, here's a band that should not be on here! They're not even close to being one of the worst of all time! They're one of the most influential pop-punk bands of our time. - WhiteWalkersAreDeadStarks

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.

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

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
Hollywood Undead does NOT need to be on this list!V 28 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.
They are the greatest crossover pop/rock band in the world. Their ability to bring true Indie Rock into the mainstream shows how versatile and musically talented these guys are! - Elijah_CookV 56 Comments

Linkin Park is overrated and I don't say that term just because "I don't like them" or some other fake reason fans do that. They get way more acclaim and appreciation than they actually deserve, which is basically overrated in a nutshell. Bad and overrated aren't the same thing, but people need to stop calling Linkin Park the "best band in the world" because the truth, simply put, is that they aren't. I enjoy listening to Meteora sometimes, but don't defend Linkin Park; Their newer albums also prove that they are selling out. And let me also just say, they ARE NOT a metal band, and if anyone considers them that, then they shouldn't be arguing with me.

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
They're not rock, they are "crunkcore", which is basically hip-hop beats with screamo vocals. Still absolutely horrible, almost as bad as BOTDF. - Elijah_CookV 18 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.
This band makes BvB sound like Led Zeppelin. Disgusting crap. - Elijah_CookV 3 Comments
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
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
COME ON! Nirvana is the greatest band of all time! RIP Kurt Cobain.V 126 Comments
No Doubt THE worst - Jetticus12
I like the vocals, but the songs suck
No Doubt is an amazing band. Today's generation just doesn't understand good music.
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. - AnimeDrawerV 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?
"Tonight, Tonight" is the "We Built This City" of this generation. - Elijah_CookV 13 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.
My god these guys suck. All they do play a ton of notes and speed it up to make it seem like they're shredding. It's all the same, and like the guy below me said, the lyrics and guitar playing are extremely cheesy and are no redeeming factor.
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 14 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
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)
Worst lead singer ever^ I gotta puke ;cause the annoying vocal of Jon Bon JoviV 28 Comments
This is one of those bands when the fans only care about the lead singer but there more to that. Now paramore have lost two members and is falling apart a lot like guns n roses
Come on how can U2, Nirvana, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Rolling Stones (even Coldplay) be worse than Paramore? They sound like one of these lame bands one encounters in Jesus camp but with an emo slant. "Look we have red hair! We're so cool and different! ! " Band as bad as Nickelback, both made for the 12 year olds who do not have a proper grasp on good music (yet).
Paramore is great. It shoudn't be on the list..
Someone who added Paramore on this list just jealous..!
I hear so much people say this band is great but it sounds really loud and bad. Oh yeah why do people think this is emo ITS NOT! - tacopersonV 17 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!
GET EM OFF THIS LIST! (Cringes into a million pieces.) - OnyxDashV 17 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
This band sucks, whiny vocals, only one remaining member, overrated guitarist. and ax rose is a complete a hole. I don't know why people are liking this band so much. they are the worse band ever, they are worst than nickelback and limp bizkit - Th3Zm0nst3rV 60 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
They used to have some good songs but then turned to total crap. - Elijah_CookV 11 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
They're like The Monkees, didn't even start as a real band. Even worst they never even learned to play for real.V 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
I listen to a ton of bands, and hinder is my absolute favorite. don't put them on this list!
They're okay. - OnyxDashV 2 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.
People need to stop oohing and aahing at this guy's "unique" image and "shock value" and pay attention to how bad his music actually is. - Elijah_CookV 37 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
Boi when I saw this I was like, "Wha- BOI GO HOME! " because PANIC! AT THE DISCO IS MY LITERAL SOUL! And by the way, they're ALTERNITIVE!V 17 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
Never heard of it
what? - OnyxDashV 6 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.
Worst than Marilyn Manson? No. - DisturbedpotatoV 13 Comments
The Gorillaz aren't even a rock band... What?
Why are they on this list? There awesome
Gorillaz is so original and they are awesome and they aren't rock, maybe feel good in is kinda rock and with rap but I wouldn't consider them as rock
They are an okay band but on the worst list, hell no! - spodermanfan1000V 5 Comments
Screw what anyone says, they save lives! One of the best bands of the 2000's based on pure sound alone.
My Chemical Romance is a great band, possibly my all-time favourite. This list is shockingly bad, half of the bands on here shouldn't be on the list at all! They've saved lives, inspired loads and of course, made amazing music!
Some of my friends tried to get to listen to this band but I just don't like there whole feel.
I think people hate this band cause they're emo and all they talk about death. If you actually SAW and READ the lyrics most of their songs are NOT about death. - tacopersonV 23 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
Don't kill me for my opinion. This band sucks, as their songs all sound the same and the lyrics all mean nearly the same thing. - HollyleafOfThunderClanV 8 Comments
I don't know them but why on hearth would you put that name to your band?
This is the greatest band name ever
This is an actual band? - OnyxDash
This band is not rock. And they are the second worst band behind BOTDF. At least their lyrics are not gross and the screaming actually takes more talent than to sing like Dahvie Vanity, but still atrocious. They are a joke band, but still awful. - AnimeDrawerV 3 Comments
They helped stop the cutting now I only drink bleach
Pierce the veil should NOT be on here. The lyrics they have are meaningful and help save lives.
Pierce the veil shouldn't belong in this list
Never heard of them. - OnyxDashV 3 Comments
