Worst Rock Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Attack Attack

The worst parts of metal (which isn't good to begin with) and pop (which aslo isn't good to begin with) mixed. -

102 Beach Boys Beach Boys The Beach Boys are an American pop rock band formed in Hawthorne, California in 1961. The group's original lineup consisted of brothers Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and their friend Al Jardine.

The fact that this band is on here confirms what I already knew: the Beach Boys are truly the most underrated band. Maybe because their peak came at the same time as the Beatles. If Brian Wilson had relased SMiLE, and if they could have broken away from the whole surfing, cars, and chicks image, they were on a trajectory to equal, even surpass the Beatles. - beatles

I can't believe the Beach Boys is on here. A worthy competitor of the Beatles. Wait...they're on here too...

Why are the beach boys on here come on whoever made this worthless list. - Ryan_14

Whoever put the Beach Boys on here needs to be sedated

103 Eccentric Toilet

Never heard them, don't want to. Just the name man! If you want to be taken seriously come up with at least a decent name for your band, really?

Another crappy band but they choose an appropriate name.

This is almost as bad as Poopfist (a band later in the list). Who came up with this name?

104 Puddle Of Mudd Puddle Of Mudd Puddle of Mudd is an American rock band formed in 1991. To date, the band has sold over seven million albums and has had a string of No.

How is this band not higher?

Why are they here?

Why are good bands like U2 and Metallica higher than this trashy excuse of a band?

105 Beastie Boys Beastie Boys The Beastie Boys are an American Rap/Rock group that was formed in 1981 by its three original members, Michael "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz, and Adam "MCA" Yauch.

I'm only 11. Beastie Boys are the best band in the world. I've grown up on them! Really get your head out of the dirt, take a look at life for once!

I was a teenage boy in the 80s, and I had to fight for my right to party, but never would I unleash this dreadful, testosterone-drive drool on another individual.

Whinging brats

My uncle knew Adam Yauch personally. Me and my family listen to the Beastie Boys all the Time! They are one of my favorite bands of all time! Who ever made this list honestly knows nothing about good music. And I have absolutely no idea why THE Beatles, ROLLING STONES, Led Zeppelin, U2, RATM ARE ON THIS LIST!

106 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

Muse is a brilliant band and if you look at other lists on this website for the greatest rock band. Muse is clearly on that list, this list however makes no sence putting some of the best bands of all time here. I don't think muse should be here at all, I think people just don't like the genre so they think all the greatest rock bands are crap. I love muse and it does not deserve to be here.

No other band is nearly as good as Muse.

Shut up all you people. muse is great along with half of this list. I don't really know why they are on here but they are awesome

Narrow minded idiots. listen to supremacy for godsake

110 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

112 Foo Fighters Foo Fighters Foo Fighters is an American rock band, formed in Seattle in 1994. It was founded by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl after the death of Kurt Cobain and the dissolution of his previous band. The band consists of obviously Dave Grohl (lead vocalist, songwriter), Pat Smear (lead guitarist, pianist), Nate Mendel ...read more.

Nope. Nirvana. Greatest alternative band of all time. Dave is an amazing drummer, and landed well when he jumped from drums to guitar and microphone. Don't put these two on here

Why even this band in this list? They have won Grammy award already for their The pretender...

They are even better than Nirvana because their vocalist wasn't a stoner who killed himself. And NIRVANA is GOOD, which says a lot about the Foo Fighters.

Overrated garbage - Th3Zm0nst3r

117 Senses Fail

Never heard of them. - OnyxDash

118 Electric Light Orchestra Electric Light Orchestra The Electric Light Orchestra are an English rock band from Birmingham. They were formed in 1970 by songwriters/multi-instrumentalists Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne with drummer Bev Bevan.

Why is this band here?

ELO does not belong on this list!

What type of person wouldn't like ELO


119 Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

Watch a video on YouTube about the "Scumbags of the Internet" by A Dose of Buckley. Just type in A Dose of Buckley Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and you'll see why. Not only are they bad, their attitude is absolutely horrendous too!

Don't get me wrong people, rja are GREAT in the studio and their lyrics do have pretty extreme meaning, but when it comes to live performances, the singer and the rest of the band really need to take lessons, plus they are kind of no different from other decent bands like Fall Out Boy, Blink 182 and Papa Roach.

Not very good in live.. I like their songs, lyrics to be exact.. but in live performances? Naahh!

120 The Doors The Doors The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore.

Although in truth The Doors should not be anywhere near any "worst" lists, Jim Morrison was enough of an "anti everything" kind of guy, he would no doubt be proud of being right here, and would not have wanted to be on the "best" list, despite of course deserving to be on it.

Umm, they're one of the best bands ever..

Third rate bar band.
