Top Ten Worst Things About One Direction


The Contenders: Page 3

41 They Ripped Off Onerepublic by Having the "One" In Their Name

So what? Who says only they can have one in their name? I know, but I'm just saying...

Honestly! OneRepublic is the BEST BAND EVER! You can't compare "1D" and OneRepublic. OneRepublic has good, genuine music like "Counting Stars" and "Preacher". Go listen to it and see what I mean!

One direction is horrible. I like the beatles and one republic.

That's just awful, they really do suck!

42 They Have Too Much Luck

They have no talent but yet are living the good life. They're careers are simply based on luck.

Well to have luck you need talent!

Yeah some people have good luck is that bad? - blondegirl123

Isn't that a shame

43 All of Their Songs Sound the Same

Yeah best song ever and little things is so alike (sarcasm)

Not necessarily the same, just the feel that gets to me.

I always think that when I heard their songs

That is the biggest lie I have ever heard

44 All Their Songs Are About Girls

What? Do you want them to be about boys? I don't think so...

I think I'm gonna retch if I hear more of this soppy, unrealistic fairy-tale love to girls niff-naff. People need to understand that a real relationship is nothing like the ones you hear in their songs or in Hollywood movies. Why listen to that fake stuff when there's plenty of more relevant stuff to sing about that a lot of us can actually relate to? Like inspiration, day-to-day struggles in life, politics, war, values and beliefs, bereavement... so many other things to sing about.

Listen to Clouds, Act my Age, Midnight Memories, Don't Forget Where You Belong, Up All Night... Etc. Not all about girls

All their songs are made so girls think it's about them and feel good about themselves... Well guess what! They're not about you, they didn't even write the songs and probably don't care about the fans anyway!

Yeah and if they write about boys, you wouldn't leave a chance of calling them gay

45 They Have No Talent

They don't have talent, that's true!

They can't write, they can't play. And most of them are just backup singers. Even the manufactured Monkees could play instruments well and they did in fact write their own number 1. These idiots can't do anything. They are just so talentless. Good bands should be able to play instruments at the very least. that's the bare minimum. Play an instrument. These stupid imbeciles can't. Only one of them can play a guitar, but he's not a proper guitarist who can play riffs and solos and all that. Idiots.

Oh look at that, I haven't seen you get three gold stars in the xfactor! Shut up, please. your heads are so stuck up 2010's arse that once you listen to a recent one direction song, you'd immediately listen to it as a bad song without giving it a try! What's your problem? They've become better and better throughout the years and their sound became so different. what do you look at them as? Some poppy british boyband, correct? Because of their debut album. great. good for you. now go listen to FOUR and I'll get back to you.

Everybody has some talents. Please don't insult the whole human being.

46 They Have Infected the Minds of Thousands of Teenage Girls

All the girls at school hate them true! Oh I used to be a directiner till I found them stupid, annoying, dumb, and not a good band for kids.. And I kinda find then not attractive

Okay well once again, it's your opinion to like a band. I won't hate. But if I like a band, aka 1d, you will hate. Not cool, girlfriend. I can understand the scary fans, but my mind isn't infected. Don't tell if or if not my mind is infected. This is my opinion that I like one direction. And there's nothing wrong with that, just like your love for another band. Peace is better than war.

After going into school one day wearing an All Time Low t-shirt - I discovered this after being ambushed by a swarm of 12 year olds. Despite myself being a few years older, they didn't hesitate to throw harsh insults at me such as,"The lead singer of that band is a ******", "You like THEM?! Jump off a cliff! " These girls used to be completely normal children - now?

There music is a high infecting VIRUS and IT'S MAKING MORE TWEENIES AND TEEIES INFECTED EVERY DAY shivers

47 Larry Shippers

Larry isn't real

Your point being? Santa Clause, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy... they aren't real. Just because you don't believe in "Larry" or whatever other one direction ships there are between the band, doesn't mean others don't. - DinoIsBlue

... I can't even so annoying

Awwie they look so cute

I agree

48 Their Management Controls Almost Every Single Thing They Do

I like singers/bands like Luke Bryan, The Band Perry, Linkin Park, Keith Urban, and most bands that sing with honesty. 1D sings only for the money, and deserve to die in a hole. Their fans need to move on in life and listen to Train or Lady Antebellum, or One REPUBLIC. They have true definition in music.

Example- The Band Perry's If I Die Young
1D's Kiss you
If I Die Young- "But she buries her baby. the sad life, of a short life. Well, I've had just enough time"
The song is about suicide/children being murdered.
Kiss You- "Let me kiss you"
About a guy flirting on a girl... AGAIN!

The Band Perry puts meaning in songs, so do other artists, but not 1D!

Why don't you choose a song that doesn't work exactly in your favor? Like Diana. That's about suicide. In fact, it's the band specifically saying that even though they don't know you, they still love and care for you. And that you shouldn't take your life so long as there's still that one person that you know doesn't care about any differences you may have and just wants you to continue living.

Yes. That's why we hate modest. Directioners and one direction want modest management dead.

So not true. Why don't you find the truth. They are young men. They can make responsible decisions without management, although management does help. Besides, even if management does control them, that's not the band's fault. Making hater reasons requires some thinking and accuracy.

49 Their Fans Constantly Send Hate to the Wanted

The wanted started hating on one direction for no reason, it's not the fans fault. In all honesty though? What does this has to do with the band?..

Just Saying but the comment was "their fans send hate to the wanted" your not complaining about them your complaining about their fans. they can't control how there fans act & one more thing the hate to the wanted started because the wanted made comments about the one direction not saying hating is right because it never is but still

And of course if their fans do mean things they must be evil! Oops, what do you know; that means every band is evil! Very flawed reasoning...

That's so mean of those dictoriners

50 Directioners Make Fun of People If They Like Other Bands

Eg I like bigbang and anime some directioners say stuff like eww Asians are so ugly they don't sing in English no bigbang is copying one direction I was like uh no bigbang debut in 2006. Eww super junior there like in there late 20s one is 30 our boys will never be that old I was like bitch one point In Harry's life he will have a 30th birthday party how dumb is saying that eww Asians can't dye their hair blonde it's fake but one direction can dye there hair and other people so how's it fake is it the law that Asian boys can't dye there hair if they want to and some worry if 1D will meat SNSD and date I was like what OD have girlfriends. Some are saying that the guys in vampire knight are hotter than 1D which is true one said that aido is trying way to hard to be sexy and he's coping nail and takuma accent is fake he should go back to South America or wherever he come from. Not all are like this but seen some say this stuff on YouTube and some other sites

You're literally insulting a band to make yourself feel better

No definitely not. I love one direction. You gonna come and say "Hey, I dislike their music. I am into Imagine dragons, one republic, etc". I will most probably reply with "Cool, I like imagine dragons too. Everyone has different taste in music". Jeez dude, don't judge the whole fandom because of some immature girls. I am a 27 year old woman, and I am proud to be into one direction.

That's parcially true some do but I'm a 1d fan and if other kids don't like one direction or like other bands that's not bad well to some people it is but be who you are not what others R. If you like a band go for it if you don't like a band so? Natural. - blondegirl123

Um first I'm never one of those fans. Second Idc what band u like. Third I'm a sweet person

51 They Are Nothing More Than a Marketing Tool Devised by Greedy Business Men to Take Money from the Most Stupid & Gullible Members of Society.

The motley group of sound botherers were hand picked because of image rather than vocal ability. They had backing vocals to boost their weak voices throughout the X Factor and had the show telling the public to vote for them, and still they lost. The winner of the show has been blacklisted by Cowell for being an actual talented singer, yet the losers were given massive publicity. $20m was spent to break them in the US to brainwash the dumb into believing they have talent, yet their music is loss making. The profit comes from their merchandise.

Worse than this, their Twitter accounts (like everything else they do) are controlled by their management. So there are 100 million under age girls tweeting a faceless person in the belief it's Harry, Barry, Gary, Larry or Carrie.
Then there's the fake Zayn/Perrie relationship used to promote the talentless group of girls under the same management.

So not only are they a fake group they actively lie to their fans.

And ...more

Everyone likes different types of music. Just because we are interested in their music and buy there albums doesn't make me "stupid and gullible". Just because I actually liked this band and my parents wanted to see me happy so they bought me concert tickets doesn't make my parents "stupid and gullible". They are 5 guys who had a dream, which they have achieved. And man, they just make music. It's not their fault that they got so rich and famous so fast. It's not even a mistake to begin with. Jeez, you need to cool down

RUDE! That kinda hurt my feelings :c not to much but whoever wrote this didn't speak from there heart they spoke from there hater friends family or strangers this can be true to you but to others its not so fine the bands you like are just the same if you think every band is! :s - blondegirl123

52 They're Ugly

So "they are only liked for their looks" and now "they are ugly" this doesn't make much sense... Just saying

They are liked for their looks, that is absolutely correct, but Niall Horan is actually very good looking, look it up, he's hot.

They actually are really attractive. I don't really like their music much except a few songs but they do are handsome. I guess the person who sais this is either into old men or really young men or is blind.

You're all such hypocrites for saying this. thanks for that. how'd you feel if I called you ugly and said that 'your hair goes in different directions', as well as 'nobody likes your face because it's ugly'?

I agree. I'm not Directioner42 anymore as you can see I'm LiaRose2400!

53 They Can't Draw

What does drawing has to do with doing what you love. Singing. Please just don't be ridiculous

This is idiotic. Drawing? Is that the best you got? I can't draw either, now are you going to hate on me? Well, can you draw? Can any direction alters draw? I'm sure some can, but not the majority. Even though, zay n can draw. He can sing and draw. Everyone has different talents. Please.

Zayn's amazing at drawing, but what's the big deal? So what some can't draw that's not gonna affect their career

Why is that so important?

54 The Name

One Direction...

That leads to crazy fangirls sending death threats to people who hate the group.

Like that other item on this list said, they just ripped off OneRepublic, who actually have TALENT. But, you have to admit, it DOES kind of suit them. Because the only direction their going in is DOWNHILL!

So what if they stole the ONE from OneRepublic even 5sos I mean 5 seconds of summer stole the logo of 30 seconds to mars's logo...

The other

55 They've Ruined the Internet

If you go to and you look at what's hot, it says a bunch of things and then it says One Direction! There is nothing special about them

I dare you to scroll through the "what's hot" feed of any social media and not see a (too) familiar face.

You literally cannot go anywhere on the internet without seeing 1D. I'm even on a page about One Direction right now. - IsyTheElf101

They MADE the internet.

56 They Existed

If they are solo artists, they would've made it by their looks only

Their existence is the reason that sadness exists

Last time I checked, depression and suicide was happening long before One Direction was a band. - DinoIsBlue

Well this should be reason number one! SARCASM this is stupidest reason with no logic

What about you existed

57 Harry Styles Said They Were Bigger and Better Than the Beatles

Harry said that they were PROBABLY even bigger than the Beatles but music wise, they would be fools if they compared themselves to the Beatles! I think it's better to be clear about the whole matter than to just rant about it without even understanding the matter. no offense to anyone at all!

Correction : Harry said that they were more famous than Beatles PROBABLY (Which is true. They are more famous) and he also said that music wise, they would be fools to compare themselves to the Beatles because the Beatles were legends. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT

That's ridiculous to even compare music wise, just look at the decades it's much easier to make it in music these days with YouTube but when the Beatles were around they made it bigger than one direction ever will and this was without the YouTube and Internet to help.

... Wow. Don't even go there, Styles. Do NOT even go there.

This stupid website makes no sense.

58 Fans Hate On Their Girlfriends

Yeah, this is sick. Some fans are really mean and need to get lives.

We do? Oh no we don't? Fake fans do. But WE don't. - XxHarryxStylesxX

Not all of their girlfriends just the ones that are mean and don't really like the boys

I would never make fun of them. I like Perrie Edwards. Sophie and danellie.

59 Directioner Fan-Fictions

Listen, fan fiction is probably something that fans write for their own amusement. They mean no harm. And obviously if you don't like them, then stop reading it!

Fan fiction is for the fans. Not for haters.

This is the most annoying part of the fanbase. Its crazy. Girls that think dating 1D makes you awesome and think it would be so cool to be Mrs. Styles and have a hundred kids with him? Ew.
