There are plenty of bands that represent the gold standard of their respective genre. From rock to pop to country, certain artists are such experts at their craft that pretty much everything they've done could be heralded as some degree of awesome. Some people thrive at the top of the totem pole, but there are always those musical speedbags we love to take a few jabs at.
For as hated as some of these bands are though, do they really deserve all the hate that they get?
Rather than showering something with praise, hate is typically something that comes with the passage of time and can only hold up if it remains consistently bad throughout the years. If something is just boring or just sounds gross to listen to, you can typically get over that, but 'hated' is something that has to stick with you.
Some of these acts even have some genuine talent behind them, but there is that one turd in the punchbowl that everyone just can't get around. Whether they've survived through memes, scars, or just the refusal to go away, these are just a handful of artists that we love taking to court. No artist can be all bad, but given the slogging some circles have given these bands, they can only go up from here.
