Worst Rock Bands of All Time

61 Bring Me the Horizon Bring Me the Horizon Bring Me the Horizon is a British rock band from Sheffield, Yorkshire. 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

Worst piece of crap of all time!

The singer's voice is one of the most pretentious and painful to listen to. His idol is probably Yoko Ono. - naFrovivuS

62 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

The most generic band ever to me, but I love em. like all of their songs sound the exact same as everything from that album - EliHbk

The band is composed of Matthew Tuck (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Michael Paget (lead guitar, backing vocals), Michael Thomas (drums) and Jamie Mathias (bass guitar). Former members include Nick Crandle and Jason James; ...read more.

What the... ? Bullet For My Valentine is a great band. They actually have audible lyrics through their screaming and they can play live. I like their lyrics too, it's not "whiny" at all. I love especially Scream Aim Fire and Fever albums but I also like The Poison. Bullet For My Valentine DOES NOT DESERVE TO BE ON THIS LIST.

I'm. Going to kill who put this on here

God what a horrible band. Whiny and generic as all hell.

They're okay. - OnyxDash

65 Sex Pistols Sex Pistols The Sex Pistols were an English punk rock band formed in London in 1975. Although they initially lasted just two and a half years and produced only four singles and one studio album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols, they are considered one of the most influential acts in the history ...read more.

What the hell are you people saying! The sex pistols are an icon of punk rock!

Why the hell are these guys here? Nevermind the Bullocks is a classic album!

Republicans are voting here.

How is this on here? Anarchy In The UK is awesome! Johnny Rotten has the voice of an old man screaming, but that is what makes him great though, very unique voice. And they defined punk, this is true punk. - AnimeDrawer

66 Oasis Oasis Oasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991. Developed from an earlier group, the Rain, the band originally consisted of Liam Gallagher (vocals and tambourine), Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan, and Tony McCarroll.

Is it because of Noel and his loud mouth, it's because of Noel isn't it - NarrowArtist147

Should be top 3 worst. Noel is a plagarist, Liam is a 4th rate John Lennon wannabe, and the others, honestly, who cares! Incredibly stupid and derivative music and an embarrassment to England.

One of the greatest bands ever

Get em off this list. - OnyxDash

67 Pierce the Veil Pierce the Veil Pierce the Veil is an American post-hardcore band from San Diego, California. Formed in 2006, the band was founded by brothers Vic and Mike Fuentes after the disbandment of the group Before Today, which was formed out of the San Diego punk rock scene.

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. - OnyxDash

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

Before forming into Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury ...read more.

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.

How is this band on the list? Their live shows are amazing and beyond fantastic, their songs are musicals. All the members are talented and Freddie Mercury has one of the greatest voices of all time. Plus, their songs are awesome, not just Bohemian Rhapsody, but Under Pressure, Invisible Man, Killer Queen, and We Will Rock You, as well as We Are The Champions. In fact, I played one of their songs on Guitar Hero because I wanted to. - AnimeDrawer

GET EM OFF THIS LIST! (Cringes into a BILLION pieces.) - OnyxDash

70 R5 R5 R5 is an American pop rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 2009. The band consists of lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Ross Lynch, Riker Lynch, Rocky Lynch, Rydel Lynch, and Ellington Ratliff.

They are all about the almighty dollar. Their shows and website can't push their crap bags fast enough. The amounts of money young girls have to spend in a room with their heart throbs to be herded through like cattle to listen to their repetitive and inane conversation, have a photo taken with them and get a bag of dime stor trinkets is foul. The content of their songs is sexual, yet parents allow their daughters and sons to attend these maniacal "concerts" where I understand the wait time for the opening acts and wait time takes far longer than the actual performance of Ross Lynch gyrating his pelvis, tugging at his hair and clothing is not appropriate. How do I know? My 12 year old daughter was a fan of the Disney show, "austin & Ally". She wanted to go to a show, so like a good parent, I did my research which is very simple on line. Do most parents want their hormone charged Tweens to exacerbate their sex drive already? I love good rock music for age appropriate people. There are ...more

These idiots turn Disney Channel into a freak show - FrankP

They aren't even rock-. -

Sucky band with terrible, cheesy teen songs, rather listen to Good Charlotte than this pile of poop. Love Me Like That is such an annoying song, sounds like a Kesha song, but worse. - AnimeDrawer

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

72 Backstreet Boys Backstreet Boys

Well, do I have to say anything? I'm not a girl, and I'm not gay. Therefore I can't physically like them.

Backstreet Boys sucks! Who hears this music nowadays?

Now this... This is what a real boy band is, they aren't auto-tuned crap like 1D and the Backstreet Boys are talented.

They're not rock, but their music is good - wrests

This is such bull, these guys did their thing in the 80's I loved them!

74 Kid Rock

This stupid redneck... Sexist from hell... !

Man Kid rock is so bad it makes me want to cry. I have a radio playing at night and even if I'm cozy I will get up to shut off a radio when kid rock comes on

Kid Rock is a talentless dope.

He's okay. - OnyxDash

What the heck. This list is retarted.

Who the hell even put them on the list? These guys redefined the alternative scene and unlike most rock bands of the 90s, stayed popular all of the 90s. Those who say they're bad deserve to die a horrible death.

... Is this list serious?

Faith No More is so much better.

Giving me a heart attack!

80 Airbourne

Airbourne should not be on the list. The are what a rock band should be. They
Have style and are not monotone like many modern rock bands. Most modern music sucks these days. Get the list right and only include trash.

Airborne is pretty great

Very underrated band. Get em off this list. - OnyxDash

What? Airbourne is heaps good. They're like a modern AC/DC.
