Worst Rock Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 3
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
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!
I cannot for the life of me understand why people like this band, especially "bulls on parade." Morello is the only one in the band with any talent, and he would probably sound pretty good if he'd quit all the retarded special effects.
I think a lot of people just pretend to like this band the way they did Slipknot after Guitar Hero 3 came out
They're awesome! Why are they on this list?V 16 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
This band is garbage. The only good thing they have released were their Led Zeppelin covers which I actually enjoyed to be honest. I feel like they did a good job covering them.V 8 Comments
Don't kid yourselves, guys. I will gladly pay anyone who can explain to me why they are a good band because what I what I have heard from them makes me think a caveman with two sticks has more musical talent. - Duality
The Rock and metal industry has been unbelievably overstuffed with emo garbagecore like this. Where is escape the fate on here? Every time I talk to somebody and they say "I like metal, like Black Veil Brides" it makes me nauseous. And Why is Pink Floyd on here!?!?
Most retard ass singer I've ever seen on the planet earth.
Love "Raised by Wolves". Pure metal.V 9 Comments
What the hell? They're LEGENDS of music, darlings
If you think The Rolling Stones/ Queen deserve to be on the list, you are deaf or listening to the wrong bands. End of story.
BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY HAS SOME OF THE BEST LYRICS EVER... SO...
They are very good, but pretty overrated. I mean, I love their albums like Queen II, A Night at the Opera and Innuendo, but some of their "popular" songs are pop-like and basic, for example We Will Rock You. Very overrated, especially topping Pink Floyd in best Classic Rock bands. They can't even be compared, Pink Floyd is a million times better than Queen. - patrickfloydV 17 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.
This guy is literally the Lil Wayne of rock music. What do I mean by this? The only thing him and Wayne have in common is that they both sound like they smoked a ton of crack.V 32 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.
This band is truly abysmal. Their lead singer CANNOT sing at all, and the rest of the band plays boring stuff that has been done many times before, and better. Hell even Limp Bizkit is better than this dreck.V 9 Comments
Worst bridge ever in the song "Loser" pointless, doesn't match up with the rest of the music.. Dumbass guitarist just wanted to go off with lame ass soloV 1 Comment
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
There awesome, best band ever, besides the Beatles and Linkin Park. and I'm 11
You're not special for being 11 and listening to those bands. Sorry. - DualityV 3 Comments
Are you kidding me?! what the hell is this name!
Never heard of it
Uhh, okay? Good name...?
Seth would be proud AxCx made it here! RIP Seth Putnam. The world needs more musical nihilism. - LordMongoV 4 Comments
I don't know them but why on hearth would you put that name to your band?
This is the greatest band name everV 2 Comments
They have been my favorite band for ten years. This is literally the most irrelevant list I have ever seen. They made up there stage names when they were still in school of course they are going to sound dumb lol. You can not doubt they are amazing musicians. While M Shadows voice isn't for everyone I understand that but many people including myself love it and they are going to keep making music and touring because the fans highly out number the haters
All of you are idiots to the max. Avenged Sevenfold is one of the best rock bands today. All of you hating obviously don't know music. And how can you even say that they don't have talent? I'd like to hear you sing the way M. Shadows does with all of his vocal ranges, or play guitar the way Syn does...idiots, man.
The fans of this band will try to force their opinions onto you that they are the best band of all time. The Rev is not the greatest drummer, he used double bass.M. shadows voice is irritating beyond belief, Synyster Gates puts no emotion into his guitar playing, and the band members are unbelievably emo people who try to come across as metal, yet fail miserably at it. - c0mf0rta61ynum6
Trolls are becoming too annoying - zxmV 13 Comments
Never even heard of this, but whatever floats you're boat I guess. - Gazette
They should at least be 15th because of their name laugh out loud
Never heard of them but they should be number 1 on a list of worst band names.
This is what the 1st amendment gets you some 12yr old putting this ( United States)V 6 Comments
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".
Once again, it's death metal, so I hate it.
Why is this grouped with rock? I really don't think it should. Also, a great band.V 1 Comment
Why is Disturbed on here? They are awesome.
Dude saying it sucks doesn't make it true
They are an excellent band so whoever said it should keep their opinion in their head. - jbsucks11
Trashy rap-rage rock and horrible covers of 80's and 60's songs. The dudes voice is just awful.V 6 Comments
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
The most overrated metal band ever, I thought metal was about deep, meaningful topics, not gore and torture.
Should this be grouped with rock?V 6 Comments
Great band. They've brought back what made Motown great, before Michael Jackson's '80s dance noise ruined it. Listen to an old classic like "Still Water" by the Four Tops if you wonder where their sound came from.
I hate this... They change their mind on everything! Why are The Rolling Stones at 24 and this website thought they were 4 or 5 on top 10 rock bands..
This isn't a bad list, this band is mediocre
Worse than hello kitty suicide club? WhatV 5 Comments
These guys are terrible. They leader singers voice sucks my will to live. Sounds like a bitch instead of a man
I'm sorry, but I just can't stand this band.
Fun are just depressing. Nate Ruess' voice is terrible. Get this band to the top and also get Muse off this list.
I can't even believe I used to listen to them. What. The. Hell. Was. I. Thinking?!V 3 Comments
Horrible singer. Songs don't make sense. Example :everybody talks. This band hates talking! But they're doing it. what?
Rock? Sounds more like bubblegum power pop to me. And their music all sounds the same.
Not sure neon trees can be qualified as a rock band
Why are Coldplay, Fall Out Boy Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5, Neon Trees, and others I forgot to mention on this list? Jonas Brothers and One Direction ARE. NOT. ROCK. Loded Diper and Grojband are not real. I just have put out so many reasons to how messed up this list is.V 2 Comments
The person who made this list is an idiot. I-D-I-O-T! Bands like Guns N Roses, Nirvana, Black Sabbath, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, The Devil Wears Prada, Green Day, should not be even close to this list. And that's not all, I could go on. But you've gone too far when you've put the rock band of the century THREE DAYS GRACE on here! It's bloody Three Days Grace for crying out loud! Whoever made this list, and the people who contributed, should be ashamed of themselves. - Alpha101
Okay guys, its THREE DAYS GRACE not 3 days grace - VanZeppelin
3 Days Grace can go die in a hole.
"Three Days Grace". - zxmV 10 Comments
Cobra starship is so not awesome
Only sing I know by them is "You Make Me Feel" and that's not rock, that's Edm.V 2 Comments
