Ten Most Annoying Bands


10. Eminem

He either angrily raps about his terrible life (“The Way I Am,” “Mockingbird”) or childishly raps about nothing (“The Real Slim Shady,” “Just Lose It”). It’s the latter part that makes me put Eminem on this list.

9. Good Charlotte

Lead singer Joel Madden is the conductor behind this train of annoyance. In every song he over-extends notes and makes it sound like he is crying.

8. DragonForce

I can’t even comment on the singing because it’s hidden under rapid-fire guitar notes and double-pedaled bass drums. DragonForce is good for one song and then your ears start to bleed.

7. Lil’ Jon

Maybe if I didn’t hear his voice in the background of every song saying his three favorite words (YEAH! WHAT? OK!) I wouldn’t always change the song.

6. Limp Bizkit

Their songs are pointless and have no meaning. There’s so much noise it makes me want to bury my head in sand, and Fred Durst thinks he is the best thing since sliced bread. His songs are like tuning a radio between two stations and cranking up the volume in the headphones. Thankfully for our ears, we don’t hear too much of Limp Bizkit anymore.

5. LFO

When you go back and re-listen to LFO’s songs, you realize how ridiculous the song “Summer Girls” truly is. LFO is like an itchy mosquito bite, leave it alone for a while and you’ll forget all about them.

4. Beastie Boys

It’s the same thing over and over again: one member raps one line then all members yell out one word. They continue this pattern throughout songs like “Brass Monkey,” “Girls,” and “Intergalactic.” Although catchy at first, if you hear the same song twice in a day it’s repetitive.

3. Britney Spears

Her teeny-bop style was cute back in the late ’90s when the pop sensation started, but now when I hear any of her music, old or new, I immediately change songs. Maybe because she was so overplayed back at the beginning that her music never seems new.

2. The Darkness

They’re like nails on a chalkboard. Sure, at first you may say, “Wow this guy’s voice has amazing range and the guitar solos are sick,” but soon you realize the goosebumps on your arms aren’t from a chilly breeze, but rather from the lead singer’s shrill voice.

1. Hanson

Everyone’s favorite brotherly trio before the Jonas Brothers, they made their name with the pop rock song “MMMBop.” Something so catchy is as annoying as a constant sniffle. You just want to blow your nose so you can forget about it and move on with your life. But no! You have to keep sniffling because there is no tissue big enough to get rid of this annoying allergy. It’s just always there. Always singing in a high-pitched-little-boyish voice.
