These are dark times we are living in: "Gangnam Style" is the most viewed music video on YouTube, MTV is consumed with shows about teen pregnancy, and Macklemore won four Grammys. While there are still a few musicians and producers out there making great music, these days it seems that the landscape is completely littered with albums that just plain suck, and yet which also still sell an embarrassing number of albums. The sad truth is that awful music continues to be made by the boatload, and there is nothing you or I can do to stop it. And guess what? The albums scheduled for the upcoming year seem as dismal as ever, with the likes of Chris Brown, Steel Panther and Glee's Lea Michelle set for releases. Cover your ears, batten down the hatches and prepare for the worst, because there some terrible albums being released in 2014.
9. Limp Bizkit: "Stampede Of The Disco Elephants"
Release Date: TBA Just when you think nu-metal couldn't be more irrelevant, here comes Limp Bizkit with a brand new album. The 90s were a pretty embarrassing time for everybody, but no one left a pockmark on the decade quite like the band's lead singer Fred Durst. The originator of the oh-so-fashionable backwards cap and baggy white T-shirt ensemble, Durst penned the immortal phrase "I did it all for the nookie." After dismal album sales, Limp Bizkit left Interscope Records and signed with Lil' Wayne's Cash Money label in 2012. Their seventh studio album "Stampede of the Disco Elephants" is scheduled for release at some point in 2014. The first single off the album, "Ready to Go" featuring Lil' Wayne, has Durst spitting rhymes that are exactly as awful as you'd expect:
Throw them fingers up, and finger f*ck the sky, She like the way we pump it, I call her pumpkin pie, I ain't about to lie, I came up in it high, You got a problem, I'll bust you in your f*cking eye, player
