Top Ten Worst Things That Could Happen to Music In 2016


The Top Ten

1 Metal gets banned

That's stupid. Banning creative metal music and not banning "porn music" like "Anaconda"?

Some metal isn't creative. Some of it is like Anaconda, but with more violent aspects. Some (most) of it is actually good. Same goes for pop. Some of it's trash, some of it isn't. - RiverClanRocks

Metal has actual meaning. Pop just has songs about breakups, butts and sex. If heavy metal gets banned it will ruin the music industry. Long live the greatest music genre of all time. - Daughter

If this happens I'm going to scream. And make a rant video and a rant blog post about it. - RiverClanRocks

I'll still listen to it if it happens, even if it's illegal. - NuMetalManiak

2 Bruce Dickinson is forced to leave Iron Maiden because of his tongue cancer

He just got over his cancer...

Wait, he has tongue cancer? - Pony

Bruce is fine now YAY!

They'd better not get Blaze Bayley back. - IronSabbathPriest

3 Albums by bands such as Amon Amarth and Mastodon get pulled from record stores due to lack of interest

Sadly, it won't be long before there are no albums by any artist in stores, and there won't be any record stores at all.

4 Metallica makes Lulu part 2

This time, with Harry Styles probably. Make it even worse than the original. - IronSabbathPriest

Unforgiven IV & St Anger 2

5 More poser rappers come in
6 Zayn returns to One Direction

I hope they disband forever.

They should be gone by 2016

This cannot happen! 1D needs to burn in a fire for all eternity with Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj, and Miley Cyrus! - RiverClanRocks

Yeah! I hope we get to exchange them for Kurt Cobain, Tupac, Cliff Burton and The Rev.

They all need to leave. - Catacorn

7 Nicki Minaj covers a Beatles song

Nah, she's too dumb to do that.

She'll rap about it. - Catacorn

Err...lets not think about it... - SamuiNeko

8 Morrissey dies of skin cancer

That would suck. Hard. The worst yet would be that some terrible pop artist would cover "We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful", make the laughing part the only thing that happens in the song, and it becomes the biggest hit of the 21st century... Save us, someone.

9 Geoff Tate releases a second album

Why doesn't he just give up? No one likes him anymore. - IronSabbathPriest

Oh God lets hope he doesn't make a mindcrime 3

I actually feel bad for this item. The Key is... Actually a pretty good album. - IronSabbathPriest

10 More songs about partying, drugs, sex, and butts get made

What has happened to this country?

The Contenders

11 The idea of Rock and Roll being the Devil's music keeps going on

That is 100% stupid and narrow-minded. I'm a Christian and I love rock/metal!

I have heard some heavy metal songs that are obviously like this, but most rock and roll and metal isn't. I love that kind of music. - Mcgillacuddy

12 American Idol contestants inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

This would not be possible, since to even be eligible for the RnRHOF, your first album must be at least 25 years old.

13 More poseur pop punk bands
14 Chris Brown isn't locked up by then

I hate Rihanna, but honestly, Chris Brown deserves to be behind bars. - IronSabbathPriest

In a cell with Justin Bieber, where the inter-gender boxing continues. - PositronWildhawk

15 Illud Divinium Insanus sells 1 million copies

I would rather this list got 1 million hate comments than this album to sell 1 million copies. I know that benefits me more than anyone else, but hey. You should know me well enough to know that I'm biast. - IronSabbathPriest

16 Rap gets banned
17 People keep supporting Miley Cyrus for what she does

What has this country come to?

Just heard that Billy Corgan might be collaborating with her. Seriously?!

18 Linkin Park breaks up

To be fair, Linkin Park does kinda suck.

19 Barbie Girl will play in the radio more often
20 Green Day breaks up

It won't just be on holiday, it would be forever. I'd be walking on the boulevard of broken dreams. - Merilille

NO, DO NOT GO! - Catacorn

21 Kanye West becomes president

A country of 50 million or so and you get stuck with two clowns. Even a man named Larry who was driving a bus I was on while on holiday in Florida would be better.

That would be a nightmare

22 Justin Bieber takes over the musical world

By making garbage instead of music? How in this sane world will that happen?!

Nooo! Kill Bieber the beaver

How is this LAST?!

Aw cringe - Neonco31

23 Legends From Past Decades Die

David Bowie, Frank Sinatra Jr., Sir George Martin, Prince

We've already lost so many this year! I don't want to happen in 2017 - 906389

24 Eminem releases another album

He is trash. - 445956

25 Evanescence splits up
26 Taylor Swift releases more horrible music

This would be a nightmare, she just needs to stop making music and retire cause she makes bad music, one of the worst.

27 Maroon 5 Releases More Horrible Music

Maroon 5, sorry I mean Adam Levine needs to quit making music now

28 Ke$ha keeps making horrible music

Hopefully, she will never make music ever again or chaos will break out.

29 Iggy Azalea keeps making garbage music


30 Shawn Mendes keeps making music
31 Slipknot breaks up
32 Charli XCX makes a new album
33 Bernard Sumner of New Order gets shot and killed and replaced with Justin Bieber

It would ruin the career of Britain's defining dance-punk band entirely!

34 Adam Lambert makes several number-one hits

Even worse is the fascist glamberts that will gloat on people to show how SO important their little ugly screamer is. For goodness sake, listen to REAL music not the crap you currently like, The Smiths would be a good start.

35 More music artists do nasty stuff
36 Paramore releases an album that is worse than Self Titled

In 2017, they switched to indie pop. Hard Times is a good song. - 445956

37 Vocaloid disappears
38 Lil Wayne releases a new album

He's not bad, he's not even a bad rapper post-2010. And plus, he'll drop an album no matter what, the Carter V. For you "I hate one guy cause I think he's a bad rapper" elitists, be happy, this is his last album. But seriously, Carter IV and FWA were dope.

39 Fetty Wap makes more horrible music

He'll probably end up like Iggy Azalea, famous for 1 year and then become forgotten

40 A song worse than cheerleader is made

Cheerleader is the worst song I have ever heard and honestly I have nightmares that thinking one day I will find something that's worse.

41 Barbie Girl will have a remake
42 Ke$ha makes a comeback
43 Relient K, Capital Kings, and Thousand Foot Krutch quit music

My 3 favorite bands quitting music? Torture, I say! Torture! - RiverClanRocks

44 Soulja Boy gets a hit song again
45 Adele keeps making music
46 Selena Gomez keeps making music
