The Top Ten Worst Singer/Songwriters
The Top Ten
A song is like a poem that is often read musically. Songwriting is not really easy as it seems. Poor writing skills gives away a poor quality song. If there are no good songwriters then what's the point?
Bret, your songs are worse than barbie's theme song.
Yes, Bret your songs are not that good. Stop crying about it.
Terrible voice and lyrics...V 2 Comments
Yeah I agree, the only U2 song I like is Mysterious Ways because of the guitar rift
Whats the difference between god and bono
God doesn't think he is Bono!
His strained nasal sound and improvising style are an embarrasment to listen to.
Same verses repeated ad naseum...terrible
This list is the single stupidest list I've ever seen. - RalphBob
You know you are not great when you haven't released anything in over 15 years.
Sure, Bob Dylan isn't the best singer but he is one hell of a songwriter. Axel, however, is bad at both.
Not to mention, he is racist.
Bob Dylan is amazing.
Why is he even on this list? Anywhere?
He only does cover songs that are just okay. Once he was singing The Star Spangled Banner and he read the lyrics of his HAND. You know that someone isn't a good singer when that happens. - bbfan132
Justin Bieber killed real music! Freddie Mercury was the greatest man to sing ever! Come back Freddie! I love you! We all love you! You are the best!
WHY IS FREDDIE MERCURY ON THIS LIST?!
How could Bob Dylan be worse than this FREAK and Demon Justin Bieber! What kind of sorcery is this crappy thing in this list! This DEMON should be number 1 ONE at all times in WORST SINGER - SONGWRITERS. His SONGS can KILL a person and Especially above all things his VOICE is really bad, irritating, like in hell that SUCKS! Worse than a mosquito's sound.
FREDDIE MERCURY SHOULD NOT BE ON THIS LIST! THE ONLY FEW SHOULD BE
#1 all the way! - Croy987V 26 Comments
For God's sake, get Freddie Mercury and Bob Dylan out of the top ten! - PetSounds
He can't sing. At all. - RiverClanRocks
Shame on the damn lister he put singer legends like phil, chester and freddie on the list... Doesn't have any damn taste of music X ( duffer!
Freddie is the best he gave us bohemian rhapsody, don't stop me now, somebody to love and we are the champions and many many more
Although a lot of his songs were absolutely amazing. Some of his song such as bohemian rhapsody are, when assessed in reality, are songs with poorly held focuses and less than tolerable lyric structure. Please do the world a favour and get off the hype train people.
She is just awful. All of her songs have one meaning: YOU'RE A DICK, IT DEFINITELY ISN'T MY FAULT THAT MY RELATIONSHIPS NEVER WORK, I'VE HAD SO MANY BOYFRIENDS IT CAN'T BE MY FAULT! She is talentless, overrated, rinse and repeat, pop trash.
Taylor is gorgeous, but after seeing all those breakup songs, I came to the conclusion she must have a terrible personality. Especially when, according to all her songs, it's always her exes' fault. All her exes should get together and make a song called "Maybe Your a Problem". by the way, whoever added Jon Bon Jovi in this list is an idiot and gives humans a bad name.
Taylor Swift is a bad songwriter and Justin Bieber doesn't write his songs.
"You call me up again just to break me like a promise,
So casually cruel in the name of being honesty
I'm a crumpled up piece of paper lying' here"
Ahem? Watcha say?
I can't stand her she sounds like a squirrel with helium in her voice and stupid autotunes she's pretty though
Oo-ooh-ooh, hoo yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Seven A.M. , waking up in the morning
Gotta be fresh, gotta go downstairs

Tickin' on and on, everybody's rushin'
Gotta get down to the bus stop
Gotta catch my bus, I see my friends (My friends)
Kickin' in the front seat
Sittin' in the back seat
Gotta make my mind up
Which seat can I take?
It's Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody's looking' forward to the weekend, weekend
Gettin' down on Friday

Partyin', partyin' (Yeah)
Partyin', partyin' (Yeah)
Fun, fun, fun, fun
Looking' forward to the weekend
7:45, we're drivin' on the highway
Cruisin' so fast, I want time to fly
Fun, fun, ...more
Worst list ever! Elton John was one of the best musicians. Also bob Dylan and Bruce springsteen what the heck? Elton John has not a single bad song.
Agree with poster below, take away the lyrics & what have you got, sorry can't understand his elevation to some kind of legend. A guy like Pete ham of badfinger wrote songs from the heart & for me did more in his short lifetime than Elton John has done in 40 years.
You're very much entitled to your personal preference but you are basically saying that the overwhelming objective position of knowledgeable listeners and musicians is unfounded, that your favorite is "the best" and the conclusions of the vast majority of individuals are faulty and should be disregarded - Billyv
Well screw this list, Elton John is in my top 3 for best musicians ever with the other two being Imagine Dragons and AC/DC! - GaretTheCarrot
Elton John? On this list?V 1 Comment
Are you kidding jovi and abba and reo speedwagon and Michael jackson and the bee here all should be at no one you know why and the Beatles and I could name names all day try and get any of there songs out of your head you can't it's impossible it's like my songwriting we are to catchy my name is derham Paul I am a singer songwriter and public performer and entertainer
He's far from the worst but his whole band is so overrated on these websites it's not even funny.
Jon Bon Jovi is an amazing songwriter and singer.
No way this guy should be on here.V 1 Comment
Seriously bod Dylan on this list what is wrong with world and lil Wayne sucks any day
Wasn't he suppose to have written like thousands of songs and what I heard I don't care for. What do the rest sound like? I am scared.
Her songs are amazing but a lot of them sound the same but maybe it's just the way she sings.
Super overrated and not that big on that high pitched voice either.
Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young, Plant, Mayer, Taylor, Duritz, Diamond, Judy Collins, Carole King, Feliciano, Vanessa Carlton, and countless others would disagree with you.
Do you really think your 5 year olds should be listening to lyrics saying I HAVE TO GET MY WAY 24 HOURS A DAY BECAUSE I'M HOT LIKE THAT (can't be tamed)
Who do you think you are? Miley Cyrus is my ROLE MODEL! Get a life whoever put her on this list!
Hey everyone! Miley cyrus sucks no reason why! ;D laugh out loud
When I'm wrong, I'll admit it. Heart did not write either of their songs that hit number one on Billboard magazine. But since they are not songwriters, that would disqualify them from this list anyway.
Your first point is actually more of a compliment considering what "pop" music sounds like these days and your second point is just a flat out lie.
According to Billboard magazine, your first point is actually false. Both Alone and These Dreams (sung by Nancy) are number one hits.
No song she has ever written has hit #1 on the Pop Charts and she not that good of a singer either.
