Worst Rock Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 5

81 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

82 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.

83 Spice Girls Spice Girls The Spice Girls were an English pop girl group formed in 1994. The group consists of Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, and Victoria Beckham, née Adams.

THIS band should be the WORST! The Spice Girls embodied all the classic trappings of these manufactured teeny bop stars. And then they had the nerve to say this group was some kind of great feminist triumph. WRONG WRONG WRONG! Also, this group put together some of the worst hit songs ever.

These aren't a rock band?

Worst rock band ever!

They are not even rock music, they are a girl group, like Girl's Generation and Little Mix. And a pretty cheesy one too. - AnimeDrawer

84 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.

GET EM OFF THIS LIST! (cringes into a million pieces) - OnyxDash

85 Metallica Metallica Metallica is an American Thrash Metal band formed in 1981 . The original lineup was James Hetfield (Vocalist and Rhythm guitarist), Dave Mustaine (Lead Guitar), Lars Ulrich (Drums), Ron McGovney (Bassist). The group came into mainstream from their Self-Titled album and the hit single "Enter Sandman". ...read more.

Why would anybody say metalica is bad they are so good I love master of puppets and have since I was a little kid. I would understand people who hate heavy metal saying its bad but I can't believe it has this many dislikes. At least System of a Down isn't on the list...

What! Metallica on 14th of course not it should be on first place not those jonas brothers. I loved Metallica since I was a little kid the black album and ride the lightning are the best albums they have. Of course this is the best band ever!

Why the hell is Metallica on this list. Whoever has dislike for Metallica I want them to listen to one and master of puppets. All the dislikes would turn into likes. However those who prefer blues and jazz tones may not prefer the heavy music of Metallica, but Metallica is the most influential metal artists of all time who have influenced many future metal artists such as avenged sevenfold. Hats of to the best musicians in the world. The MASTER OF PUPPETS.

How is this band on here? Why are Blink-182, Nirvana, and Metallica high? This band is great, Enter Sandman is a masterpiece, great song, great intro, love it. James Hetfield has an awesome voice, and the way they play the guitar is just awesome and iconic. - AnimeDrawer

Giving me a heart attack!

87 Nine Inch Nails Nine Inch Nails Nine Inch Nails is an American industrial rock/metal band and, founded in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio.

One of the most reverend and respected rock bands of the last 30 years of rock history. They shouldn't be on this list, that's undeniable.

No, Nine Inch Nails does not even deserve to be on this list at all!

They shouldn't be on here at all.

This is not a rock band it is a punk pop band

Great band, and before someone says I don't know the definition of rock music I listen to all sorts of music like ac-dc, nirvana, Green Day, the Beatles... Etc - jbsucks11

You think they're a rock band? Yeah right, you don't know the meaning of music if you like all time low, nevermind the meaning of rock music. Also why is queen, kings of leon, bowling for soup, u2, bon jovi and nirvana on this list? Honestly some people wouldn't know talent if it hit them across the head..

Yeah everything about this band is an all time low

This is a real band? - OnyxDash


91 A-ha A-ha A-ha is a Norwegian band formed in Oslo in 1982. The band was founded by Morten Harket, Magne Furuholmen and Pål Waaktaar-Savoy.

I love A-ha but it wasn't really a rock band so it shouldn't be on this list

Not rock, but good group back in the day. - OnyxDash

92 Motley Crue Motley Crue Mötley Crüe was an American metal band formed in Los Angeles, California on January 17, 1981. The group was founded by bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, lead vocalist Vince Neil and lead guitarist Mick Mars.

How is motley crue a bad band? There awesome!

Whoever put motley crue on here needs a smack in the face. They are legends and the best band ever.

Who put Motley crue on here? Most bands on here are awesome,

Generic trash but good for all you people who like female looking guys singing about sex - Lucretia

93 Family Force 5 Family Force 5

The fact that Radiohead, Coldplay, Queen, Green Day, Nirvana, and The Sex Pistols are above Family Force 5 makes me want to kill myself.

They're basically a family-friendly version of BOTDF. It's as ridiculous as it sounds.

How is this not in the top ten?

This is a real band? - OnyxDash

94 The Devil Wears Prada The Devil Wears Prada The Devil Wears Prada is an American metalcore band from Dayton, Ohio, formed in 2005. It consists of members Mike Hranica, Jeremy DePoyster, Andy Trick, and Daniel Williams.

Wait a minute isn't this actually the name of a movie?

Oh my God this band is on here? But why? There is nothing wrong with them, and I have yet to see Pierce the Veil. PIERCE THE VEIL NEEDS TO BE HIGHER THAN THIS THIS IS GOOD MUSIC

ooh c'mon, this isn't even music... why are good bands like g'n'r and pantera in this list? -

Never listened to them. - OnyxDash

95 Foreigner Foreigner Foreigner is a British-American hard rock band, originally formed in New York City in 1976 by veteran English musician Mick Jones and fellow Briton and ex-King Crimson member Ian McDonald along with American vocalist Lou Gramm.

What in the world?! Come ON. Foreigner is a legendary band. Tell me that you don't sing along to "Jukebox Hero".

Clearly whoever put them on this list forgot they did the song I want to know what love is, and their other great songs. - jbsucks11

I Want to Know What Love Is wasn't the breaking point for the band. Lou Gramm felt he contributed more to that song than Mick Jones gave him credit for. The next album was synth and guitar based but Lou wanted a more stripped down sound and felt the band was getting too pop and left the band for a solo career after the album was released.. - frankmartin

Foreigner ducking rocks! This whole list is bull! Were the voters retarded? I bet they were.

Jukebox HERO! - OnyxDash

My goodness aerosmith is awesome

Save Tonight was a good song

Being not known they deserve to be on this list

Chuck Berry is better

Never heard of them. - OnyxDash

98 Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band

He has great lyrics. Mediocre singing, so just listen to people cover his music, because he has great lyrics.

Oh god... He can't sing. Why is he screaming at us so LOUD. I don't understand the appeal. The sound like 25 other bad garage bands.

Don't dare to put Springsteen on this list!

He brought America together after 9/11 with The Rising
