Forums - Music Discussion - Worst band ever

Who in your opinion are the worst band or performer you've ever heard, and why?



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Around the Network

Band/Group: Not sure really. Probably Insane Clown Posse but I'm sure somewhere out there exists an even worse band/group.
Solo Artist: Cardi B for sure, no contest here.



Can I just say like the entire 60s/70s? The Beatles, Queen etc. they're all terrible!



I don't get how people used to listen to this:

Oh yeah, I forgot about this steaming pile of refuse:

Definitely not the "worst" band ever, but Pearl Jam is definitely one of my least liked bands. Really I love Black and a few other things are cool/ok but everything else I've heard is awful. Eddie Vedder is definitely one of the most grating vocalists and very overrated.



Band: BTS

Solo: Justin Bieber

I like pretty much everything on their first album, Ten, but it was all downhill from there, their 2nd and 3rd albums had less good tracks and after the 3rd barely any of their albums are good imo, I think I've maybe heard 2 songs from their later albums that I liked (The Fixer from Backspacer was pretty good). Their dropoff in quality was also reflected in their sales, Ten was 13x Platinum, Vs. was 7x Platinum, and Vitalogy was 5x platinum, after those first 3 albums they drop down to single platinum (1-2m sales) and then eventually Gold (500k-1m sales), and their latest album has yet to achieve Gold after almost a year on the market.

But yeah, I agree that Black is an excellent song, one of my favorites:

I actually like "Go" from Vs. more than the other songs on Ten (except maybe Once too, I forgot that was pretty great too). 

I also think this song is pretty good, after checking out the Youtube video randomly a few years ago: 

So yea, it's not really "I hate every song with Pearl Jam with a passion", but there's just something about a lot of their music - even the stuff that is admittedly catchy - that just comes off as very grating and bland and annoying. Black is amazing though, again. 



That's a hard one, it's probably one that none of us know about, but if you want to know which band that is or was at least moderately popular is definitely bad, well, I honestly don't know. Linkin Park? I never liked them and genuinely think their sound was more noise than music. I know shit about music so I'm the least qualified to make such a statement, though.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.
