Don’t we all love music? Music evokes emotions, which explains why we resonate with certain artists and instantly dial the volume knob up when their songs play. But some musicians make us cringe or switch off the radio.
First on the list is DJ Khaled. According to one commentator, ‘He is the least talented person to ever be mistaken as a musician.’ Another user adds, ‘If he didn’t announce his names in his songs, you wouldn’t know it’s him.”
Some Reddit users cannot stand Maroon 5’s lead vocalist, Adam Levine. “His music is mostly boring, and he seems like a douche,” says a middle-aged mom. Some users, however, are keen to point out that Adam’s first two albums were great, but ‘he stopped caring about songwriting’ after the band’s third album.
From looking at his name, 6ix9ine feels like a joke to some people. “It’s the kind of handle a 13-year-old boy would think is clever and cool,” reads one post. And his lyrics are no better; as a user puts it, “I look at his lyrics for his songs, and I die laughing because of how stupid they are.” But one commentator does point out that ‘his old songs went crazy’ and were drop bangers.
Reddit users feel Meghan is a hypocrite for writing a song that features body sensitivity yet body shames other women. For starters, why use the term ‘skinny bitches’ in her lyrics? Plus, “She made a song glorifying fat people and then lost a ton of weight on purpose? Hypocritical,” reads a post.
“Drake hasn’t made an actual good album since 2015-16. His fans literally just glazing because it’s Drake,” writes a commentator.
Machine Gun Kelly
It’s not all bad with Machine Gun Kelly; as one user points out, “(I) love his music, rock and rap. But the dude has major behavioral issues and impulse control.”
One angry fan says, “He was a rich kid that tried being a Beastie Boys knockoff only to realize his ‘All American Redneck’ act sold…Guys (would) have called him out for being a poser.”
Many people think Sam Smith is an attention seeker. “Sam is fine doing sad, heartbroken ballads. But in-your-face sex jams are really not Sam’s thing,” points out a commentator. Besides, “Why does Sam dress in an overly sexual way?” wonders another.
Also on the list is Cardi B, who is described as “responsible for some degradation of society” by a Reddit user. And some users haven’t forgotten her past. “She has admitted she used to drug and rob guys before she was famous, but because most of them were married or in a relationship, they wouldn’t come forward,” explains one commentator.
Some Reddit users are sick of Chris Brown too. Though he did drop several bangers back in the day, ‘his career should be non-existent’ reads a post. Another user wonders, “In this day and age, with social media being what it is, I genuinely do not understand how he still has a career.”
Not only has she had some bad PR recently with the Ticketmaster debacle, but one user said, “Her fans are absolutely insane and have a cult like mentality.”
Sometimes a controversial band, one Redditor particularly said, “It not a simple dislike. I literally cannot stand then. Hearing one of their songs completely ruin most of, if not my whole day.”
