Worst Rock Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 13

241 Journey Journey Journey is an American rock band that formed in San Francisco in 1973, composed of former members of Santana and Frumious Bandersnatch.

I've never understood why people hate this band. They are really good, if you actually listen to them.

I've always thought of Journey as being a girls rock band because every girl I know listens to them and there music is so light. Bon Jovi, REO Speedwagon, Matchbox 20 and Nickelback are bands who I would throw in the "light girl music" bin!

The worst band that everyone seems to like for some reason. Too many people like bad music.

Journey is terrible, overrated garbage. All of their songs are the same and they're not even that good. I don't know what people's fascination is with this band.

242 Rush Rush Rush is a Canadian progressive rock band that was formed in 1968. Even though the only founding member still in the band is Alex Lifeson (Guitar), the band is most well-known for their current members Neil Peart (Drums) and Geddy Lee (Bass, Vocals). ...read more.

This is the worst list ever.

What the hell? Rush is the best band ever.

This list is so messed up it makes me want to cry.

Here's 5 valid reasons why Rush should NOT be on here...

1) They're Canadian and Canadians are nice!
2) They are the most talented musicians to ever grace the music planet
3) They've had the same members since 1974. How many bands can say that?
4) They've never been much of a "pop" band with "hit songs" but done there own thing outside of the mainstream
5) They've never really went away. Always putting out new music and touring

They're good, but that doesn't matter, they're groove metal, not rock, they have no reason to be on this list.

Just awesome, dimebag rules...

246 X-JAPAN

I did't really hate them, but almost all the TepTopTens lists have in the top ten X-Japan or something from them... and they aren't really the best band! - rock2metal

Yes! This is so true! Stairway to Heaven, Holy Diver, Bohemian Rhapsody, We Will Rock You, Mr. Crowley, Crazy Train, AND Eruption are better than Art of Life! Jimi Hendrix is BETTER than Hide. Ozzy Osbourne is better than Toshi, Heck, EVEN Axl Rose is better than Toshi! - LedZepp81

Even if you create lots of wonderful ballads that doesn't make you a true good artist - ronluna

Just because they're Japanese doesn't mean they suck.

247 Slipknot Slipknot Slipknot is a Nu Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band released their first album in 1999 and was well received by critics and fans. The group gained success after the release of their second studio album, "Iowa". ...read more.

Corey, if you're reading this, you and the guys really should have thought twice before you put donnie at the very back where your audience could barely see him.

All of you people straight out of Highschool commenting on this, you can't begin to relate to music, you're too soft for it and the generation that spawned them.

The only good thing that came out of slipknot was Chad aplin

I don't mind this band but they are so overrated. also why do they need 9 members to make music. how many singers do they need. how many guitars. how many drums do they need. also I saw some people sating that their 1st album is the best album in the world. have they not heard of michael jackson thriller or a pink floyd album. also their music will make you go death in like 10 seconds and one more thing. why do they even have masks? are they about to rob a bank after a live concert or something - Th3Zm0nst3r

I have absolutely no idea what's wrong with green day. They write their own music, they don't use autotune and very rarely do they use electronic music. They have talent

Green Day is not that worst.. But they need to improve their style.. They have talent.. But they are using it wrongly. But at the same time, I accept that their guitar playing is amazing..

You blond fellow, they also have Jason white. They are one of thebest bands. Have you seen their new albums uno dos and tre?

These people are awesome! Take them off the list! - emmaricciuto

This is the best band ever. PERIOD

Best modern metal band!, avenged sevenfold is the worst. But definitely not these guys

I love FFDP But I swear. If A7x is on here, I will be way more than pissed.

Horrible cheesy arena rock lyrics. How does this crap even get on the radio.

I'm not into them, but they're death metal/grind metal, not rock, so why are they here?

Better than one direction at least

Not a band period.

No. I can tolerate Green Day being on the list because I know a lot of idiots hate them, same with The Offspring, the Beach Boys (twice) but no. Not Sum 41. This band is AMAZING

I think people don't like the rapping in Fat Lip. Those people don't know Pieces In too Deep and With Me. Sum 41 is pretty good.

This band really is similar to Blink 182, I do not know why, I even confused them one time. - AnimeDrawer

253 Dave Matthews Band Dave Matthews Band Dave Matthews Band is an American rock band that was formed in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1991. The founding members were singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Matthews, bassist Stefan Lessard, drummer/backing vocalist Carter Beauford and saxophonist LeRoi Moore.

Not a good band, unless you are a dumb girl between the ages of 21 and 40. Absurd that they are as popular as they are. Same song structure, same random chords over and over. Best song is a cover.

254 Evanescence Evanescence Evanescence is an American rock band founded in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1995 by singer/pianist Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody.

Amy Lee is one of the best female vocalists.

They have so much different styles and have very deep messages in their songs.

One of the best bands!

NO WAY! Evanescence is a great band with great vocalists and true talent! - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

To express how much I don't like their music, I'd rather listen to Limp Bizkit's "Rollin" on repeat for a week straight then listen to one of their songs. If I wanted to torture someone to death, all I'd have to do is play "bring my to life" and they'd kill themselves within a few minutes.They are simply the worst band out there.

Laugh out loud, Limp Bizkit and Evanescence? Are my one of my favorite bands and Rollin' and Bring Me To life are my favorite song. - 05yusuf09

Pink Floyd, Queen, The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, and Led Zeppelin above this awful band? - 445956

Have you ever listened to Amy's voice? And of course the talentless Beatles are above Evanescence. - Lord28

255 Rammstein Rammstein Rammstein is a German Neue Deutsche Härte and Industrial Metal band consisting of Till Lindemann (vocals), Richard Kruspe (guitar), Paul Landers (guitar), Oliver Riedel (electric bass), Christoph Schneider (drums) and Christian Lorenz (keyboard), that formed in 1994 in Berlin . ...read more.

What? Why? I discovered Rammstein a year ago and they immediately became my favourite. But to be honest I think Rammstein is one of those bands you either hate or love.

I think that person (s) that put Rammstein doesn't like them since they sing in German. but they are one of the best German singing band out there

Rammstein is metal not rock what

Aren't they supposed to be one of those joke/parody bands?

258 Seether Seether Seether are a South African hard rock band founded in May 1999 in Pretoria, South Africa. The band originally performed under the name Saron Gas until 2002, when they adopted the Seether name.

This is one of the best bands out now. They have taken Nirvana's style of music, and applied real talent to it. Seether is awesome AND talented.

Just heard they might collaborate with Miley Cyrus. Enough of a reason to have them on here.

One of the best banks of their era

The vocals are so whiney - Th3Zm0nst3r
