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

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

If you like fat dudes dressed as evil trees and the usual norg death to all thing scene your in for a treat, if not, it's fat duded dressed as evil trees and acting and sounding stupid.

Just Googled them and I have absolutely no idea what I am looking at and listening to

Lorde isn't even a rock band this list is naming every singer practically. - Ryan_14

what? - OnyxDash

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).

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

64 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

One of the greatest bands ever

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.

Get em off this list. - OnyxDash

Why? , They Are Great! - VideoGamefan5

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

67 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

68 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

69 Def Leppard Def Leppard Def Leppard are an English rock band formed in 1977 in Sheffield as part of the new wave of British heavy metal movement.

I don't agree with a lot of things on this list, but this band is one of the most overrated pieces of dog poo do in rock history.

GET EM OFF THIS LIST! (Cringes inot a million pieces) - OnyxDash

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

70 Kid Rock

The more I listen to Kid Rock, the more I hate him. Sure, Nickelback isn't the most interesting band in the world, but at least they sound good. Kid Rock, on the other hand, sounds like a herd of cows getting shoved alive into a grinder.

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

He's okay. - OnyxDash

71 Emphatic

Don't know this group. - OnyxDash

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

73 Red Hot Chili Peppers Red Hot Chili Peppers The Red Hot Chili Peppers is an American funk-rock and alternative rock band, that was founded in 1983. ...read more.

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.

74 Neon Trees Neon Trees Neon Trees is an American rock band from Provo, Utah. Known for their energetic live performances, the band received nationwide exposure in late 2008 when they opened several North American tour dates for the band The Killers.

Horrible singer. Songs don't make sense. Example :everybody talks. This band hates talking! But they're doing it. what?

Wouldn't put them on here considering they're a one hit wonder. - naFrovivuS

Rock? Sounds more like bubblegum power pop to me. And their music all sounds the same.

Never really cared about them. - OnyxDash

75 Devo Devo

If you ever listen to devo's first album, you'll understand why they shouldn't be on this list. Their are strange but yet really cool band!

They whipped it good. And blow it. And suck it. And get it all over their faces.

No clue who they are, but why is Cannibal Corpse on the list?!

WHIP IT! WHIP IT GOOD! - OnyxDash

Get em off this list. - OnyxDash

77 Mindless Self Indulgence

Worst band ever. They only write songs about drugs, porn, and other meaningless music. They are only famous because they bass player married Gerard Way. Mindless Self Indulgence sucks.

I personally like them. Guess I was born to be beheaded (which yes, is a reference). - QueenOfUnsociable123

Worthless band. Not even worth my comment, really. - Duality

This is a real band? - OnyxDash

78 The Rolling Stones The Rolling Stones The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. The first settled line-up consisted of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica), Keith Richards (guitar), Bill Wyman (bass) and Charlie Watts (drums). ...read more.

Can't believe the stones are on this list. Arguably the best rock band ever (well maybe second behind Zep, but still)

I completely agree with you...without The Rolling Stones there wouldn't have been a lot of other bands - Rocker00

This list is ridiculous. The Rolling Stones is one of the best band in the rock music history. Also Kiss, Guns N' Roses, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. Even if you do not like these bands, you can not say that they are bad.

Come on. Give me a break.

79 Kiss Kiss Kiss is an American hard rock band formed in New York City in January 1973 by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and the band's original manager, Lew Linet.

Kiss is the hottest band in the world, how could it be the 16th worst band!?

The original members wearing the makeup back in the mid 70's... NEVER! They melted your face off and kicked your ass! I'll admit... I'm not too fond of their lineup that they have today, but I'll never forget going to their concerts back in the day... They were amazing! Their concerts were unbelievable! Afterwards... You were so definitely that your hearing was off for 2-3 days, they shouldn't even be mentioned let alone be on this list what MAN seriously!

Kiss only survived because of their stage show and gimmicks. If they didn't have the makeup, costumes and gimmicky show they would have only made 2 albums at the most. They weren't ever about making good music. Their music was so corny. When Ace and Peter were replaced and they took the makeup off. Their music got better. They should have changed their name and left the Kiss mess behind.

I agree, they are very corny, this bands lyrics look like they were written by a 12 year old

Get em off this list. - OnyxDash

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.
