The band got into mainstream after improving after their debut album got negative feedback . In 1978, ...read more.

This is just wrong

How can the founders of metal be on this list, they're AMAZING!

First of all, Black Sabbath (Tony Iommi) is the creator of metal music as we know it today. DEATH TO SMALL PUPPIES

Not like BLECH Sabbath

122 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!

123 Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums). The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition ...read more.

What what WTFF Whoever added Led Zeppelin must be devoid of thinking power

I just wanted to say huh? How is Led Zeppelin even remotely associated with any list involving bad music. They have 3 members that are arguably the best at what they do. John Bonham has more talent on the drums dead than 99.9 % of the drummers now, only Neil Peart even compares to Bonzo. Jimmy Paige, all I have to say is Stairway to Heaven and Robert Plant has the BEST! Singing voice ever... Having them on this list is an insult to music lovers.

This list must have been made by people who were born deaf! Anyway, they definitely don't know anything about music. How incredibly stupid! Led Zeppelin our the "godfathers" to modern rock! Everyone today owes their existence to them.

Time to lose some followers.

Led Zeppelin is really, just really overrated. Their music is usually bland, their stuff gets boring really quickly, they plagiarize too much. Plagiarizing a few times is alright but 20 times or more, no. 1/10 - AlphaQ

124 Aerosmith Aerosmith Aerosmith is an American rock band, sometimes referred to as "the Bad Boys from Boston" and "America's Greatest Rock and Roll Band".

Why are they on here? Aerosmith is Godly. One of the greatest bands of all time.

Guess the list people decided not to walk this way...

My goodness aerosmith is awesome

125 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..

126 The Offspring The Offspring The Offspring is an American punk rock band from Huntington Beach, California, formed in 1984. Formed under the name Manic Subsidal, the band consists of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Dexter Holland, bassist Greg K., lead guitarist Kevin "Noodles" Wasserman and drummer Pete Parada.

Why are they even on here? Even their songs that are not hits are good (ex. Half-Truism).

Not a big fan, but I do like some songs by them.

Give these blokes a trophy their amazing

Very far of being the worst

127 System of a Down System of a Down System of a Down formed in 1994 as an Armenian-American Nu Metal group from Glendale, California . The band name is sometimes shortened to System or SOAD. ...read more.

For most people they're an acquired taste, but the first time I heard them I absolutely fell in love. A lot of people think their lyrics are just pointless, but they all have some kind of meaning behind them whether you believe it or not. You can't be a small minded person if you want to like them. And no, I did not intend for that to be a reference.

What is System of a Down doing here. Their lyrics might make no sense and their intros might be weird but they are AWESOME.

Not my favorite band, but undeniably good. Anyway, they're alternative metal. Not rock. They have an excellent singer too.

System of a Down is a great band, they should definitely not be here!

Just horrible.

129 The Beatles The Beatles The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. The members consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They were soon known as the foremost and most influential act of rock era. Rooted in skiffle, beat, and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented ...read more.

The fact that so many books still name the Beatles "the greatest or most significant or most influential" rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art. Jazz critics have long recognized that the greatest jazz musicians of all times are Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Classical critics rank the highly controversial Beethoven over classical musicians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Rock critics are still blinded by commercial success: the Beatles sold more than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore they must have been the greatest. Jazz critics grow up listening to a lot of jazz music of the past, classical critics grow up listening to a lot of classical music of the past. Rock critics are often totally ignorant of the rock music of the past, they barely know the best sellers. No wonder they will think that the Beatles did ...more

All rock critics and serious and reasonable listeners and fans do Not simply point to the commercial success of The Beatles. There are many other aspects used to support acclaim, high regard, talent and important influence. I'm not arguing here that they need to be considered the best, but your argument that they belong on this worst list is rationally and logically unsupported and unsupportable. And despite however knowledgeable and intelligent you are about music, the fact that an incredible amount of people have formed the opinion that their songs and music sound great and are preferable cannot be disregarded or considered invalid. This is entertainment after all, never an exact science and it incorporates subjectivity by nature, even if your tastes and opinions disagree - Billyv

How is this on the list? Total fail

You know not of music the Beatles are the best in the last 100 years in any type of music you pick. Just look a the songs not their number one hits those are great song in any era. And most important history has spoken and proven you wrong already they still sell the most in this centrey like the say in sales if the dog eats the dog food its good. The Beatles music will be around in 500 hunderd years when most of the other stuff out will be just a footnote Bill Atlanta

The Beatles stink!

130 Saving Abel

They actually had two hits (: Addicted and 18 Days.

One hit wonder crap

131 The Vamps The Vamps The Vamps are a British pop rock band consisting of Brad Simpson, James McVey, Connor Ball and Tristan Evans.

I'm sorry but the vamps are terrible. They are basically one direction clones and are pretty terrible on my opinion. I respect that they write some of their own songs but I don't like them. I respect the but I really can't bear them - lydiamichaeljackson

Isn't The Vamps like a really new band? How are they already on here?

132 Arcade Fire Arcade Fire Arcade Fire are a Canadian indie rock band based in Montreal, Quebec consisting of husband and wife Win Butler and RĂ©gine Chassagne, along with Win's younger brother Will Butler, Richard Reed Parry, Tim Kingsbury and Jeremy Gara.

This one sucks big time should be in the top ten worst ever.

133 Lil Boosie Lil Boosie

He sounds like a muppet on crack

134 Deftones Deftones Deftones are an American alternative metal band from Sacramento, California. The band, which was founded in 1988, consists of Chino Moreno, Stephen Carpenter, Frank Delgado, Abe Cunningham and Sergio Vega.

The band consisted of 5 members - David Gilmour (Vocals and Guitar), Syd Barrett (Vocals and Guitarist), Nick Mason (Drums), Roger Waters (Vocals and ...read more.

I totally agree, who ever made this crappy list is just one of those pop lovers because I have no idea why most of these bands are anywhere on this list.

What the hell is wrong with you people it's Pink Floyd not Justin Bieber...!

Why the hell is Pink Floyd on this list? Whoever put them here (you're a sucky person), I have one thing to tell you. If you hate Pink Floyd, you hate music. Why, you ask me? Because they're the GODS of music. Get it? If not, go listen to Comfortably Numb, Astronomy Domine, Another Brick in the Wall and The Great Gig in the Sky. If you still don't understand, it's you're at fault because you're too stupid.

I agree moron

139 Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping with Sirens is an American Rock band from Orlando Florida. The band formed in 2009. SWS lead singer is Kellin Quinn

Lol they suck so bad they make my ears bleed and I listened to them once and now I'm deaf they should be # 1 ://

Awful vocals

They don't belong on this list but "they help a lot of people? " Talk about irrelevant...

Why are bands like U2, Foo Fighters, Led Zepplin, Coldplay, Hole, The Doors and No Doubt higher than this awful emo trash- those bands don't deserve this list, but this band definitely does

140 Loded Diper

So given most of the bands on this list are actually amazing (ex: Metallica, Nirvana, AC/DC, KISS... Etc) we can all establish that the person that made this list is probably an 8 year old that put a band from a fictional book on here.

Dude, it's a fictional band from Diary of a Wimpy Kid,

I laughed when I saw this.

What this isn't even REAL
