43 Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson is an American rock band from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Formed in 1989 by frontman Marilyn Manson and Daisy Berkowitz, the group was originally named Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids with their theatrical performances gathering a local cult following in the early 1990s. ...read more.

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. - emmaricciuto

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. - HollyleafOfThunderClan

46 Kings of Leon Kings of Leon

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. - Disturbedpotato

47 Gorillaz Gorillaz Gorillaz are an English virtual band created in 1998 by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. The band consists of four animated members: 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle and Russel Hobbs.

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! - spodermanfan1000

48 Good Charlotte Good Charlotte Good Charlotte is an American rock band from Waldorf, Maryland that formed in 1996. Since 1998, the band's constant members have been lead vocalist Joel Madden, lead guitarist and vocalist Benji Madden, bassist Paul Thomas, rhythm guitarist and keyboardist Billy Martin and drummer Dean Butterworth, ...read more.

These phonies pawn themselves off as punk rockers, just look at there wives. To quote Eddie Vedder Good Charlotte's music is as appealing as sticking a Popsicle up your ass.

Good Charlotte can make music I can't tell the repetitive guitars and bass are so obvious you just wanna laugh this bands trays to be goofy and humorous like lifestyles of the rich and famous when it was rather boring and the anthem is a example of the repetitive guitars and bass and not to mention how predictable the song is.

These posers play junk (pop punk) instead of rock oh wait they are not even a good pop band like weezer just a awful pop band that also get really negative reviews by rolling stone and All music these critics seem to hate good charlotte just look at the ratings and you will believe me

They suck, they are Blink-182 wannabes who can't play good music. The lead vocalist is boring, I don't like his voice. Plus, their songs are cheesy, cliche, and annoying, trying to be punk but aren't. - AnimeDrawer

49 My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.

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. - tacoperson

50 Hello Kitty Suicide Club

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. - AnimeDrawer

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

52 3 Doors Down 3 Doors Down 3 Doors Down is an American rock band from Escatawpa, Mississippi that formed in 1996. The band originally consisted of Brad Arnold (vocals/drums), Todd Harrell (bass guitar) and Matt Roberts (guitar). They were soon joined by guitarist Chris Henderson, and later by drummer Richard Liles.

Worst bridge ever in the song "Loser" pointless, doesn't match up with the rest of the music.. Dumbass guitarist just wanted to go off with lame ass solo

This list is very bad.. 3 doors down is a good band. - jbsucks11

They're okay. - OnyxDash

53 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American alternative metal/metalcore (early) band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). ...read more.

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

Lololol they're all a bunch of pussies wearing eyeliner who try too hard to come off as "brutal metal woah! " but fail miserably. All of their lyrics are edgy, and the band members are overrated by their fans. No, Synyster Gates is NOT better than Chuck Schuldiner.

54 Cattle Decapitation Cattle Decapitation Cattle Decapitation is an American Deathgrind band from San Diego, California formed in 1996. Cattle Decapitation's songs protest the mistreatment and consumption of animals, the abuse of the environment and touch subjects such as misanthropy and genocide of the human race. Much of their music is based ...read more.

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.

Never heard of them. - OnyxDash

Formed in 2004, the group currently consists of vocalist Oliver Sykes, guitarist Lee Malia, bassist Matt Kean, drummer Matt Nicholls, and keyboardist Jordan Fish. They are signed to RCA Records globally and Columbia Records exclusively ...read more.

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. - OnyxDash

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

I like the singers voice, but the other musicians are pretty bad - Disturbedpotato

58 Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth are a British extreme metal band that formed in Suffolk in 1991. The band's musical style evolved from black metal to a cleaner and more "produced" amalgam of gothic metal, symphonic black metal and other extreme metal styles.

I smell bull about these guys being higher than Quiet riot.

Screw this band, they killed the heavy metal - VideoGamefan5

They Killed Heavy Metal

If you ever wanted theme music for 'Halloween' in your house this would band's music would keep the neighbourhood kids away while 'trick or treating'. They write such in depth beautiful music

This is a bad list.

This is the worst list.

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.

Never listened to them. - OnyxDash

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. - OnyxDash
