Bands With The Worst Fanbases


These bands aren't necessarily bad bands (although some of them are imo), but these band definitely have the worst fanbases imo.

Created by: VIG | 12.06.2017



1. Wintersun
go to the comment section to see all sides of this argument
2. Metallica
"ALL OF METALLICA"S ALBUMS RULE!!!! 10/10 FOR ALL OF THEM!!! BEST METAL BAND OF ALL TIME, THEY HAVE GIVEN US SO MUCH!" While that last part could be arguably true, no band in the whole world has a perfect discography.
3. Megadeth
*On Metallica's Kill 'Em All* "Dave Wrote 'Em All", while really, he barely contributed to the record. Megadave kind of helped start his own fanbase by hating on Metallica among other things.
4. Deafheaven
Pure hipster black metal.
5. Burzum
Mayhem or Darkthrone may fit here as well
6. Opeth
and all the other prog bands. Prog fanbases are filled with idiots that think that their music taste is better than everyone else's.
7. Dream Theater
8. Tool
"Maynard is the best vocalist of all time! Adam Jones is the best guitarist of all time! Justin Chancellor is the best bassist of all time! Daney Carey is the best drummer of all time!"
9. Korn
and all the other "nu" metal bands. They were made back in the day for angst-y teenagers.
10. Slipknot
11. Suicide Silence
and most deathcore bands that sound like them. I don't know many deathcore bands, so I won't list a bunch of them. The fans are like nu-metal fans pretty much, but worse and cringy-er.
12. Cannibal Corpse
Many "mainstream" or "brutal" death metal bands would fit here as well. Similar to prog in a way, the fans just think that they are the most "brutal"
13. Slayer
"FUCKIN SLAYER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! REEEEEEEE!!" You know what I'm talking about.
14. Pantera
Do I really need to explain? It is similar to Slayer and CC, the fans just worship Pantera.
15. Wolves In The Throne Room
mainly just because a lot of the fans are hipsters. Great music though.
16. Nightwish
"Half of Nightwish's fanbase behaved like Tarja was "the soul" of Nightwish, after she got fired and bitched about her absence for the better part of a decade. That's pretty pathetic and stupid, considering that one can't be the soul of the music they didn't even help write and that Tarja was and still is mediocre as a vocalist." - Metren
17. Death Grips
they have a bunch of "fans" that just make fun of them and turn them into a meme instead of a musical project.
18. Guns N' Roses
the younger fans, who stick to old bands, proclaim them to be the best ever (because they read so on some Rolling Stone's magazine list of top 100 bands and the like) and don't really feel the need to explore further than that, apart from regurgitating and reiterating those "facts" of what's the best and who's the best. - solar
19. AC/DC
^
20. Iron Maiden
I think they fall more in line with the Prog fanbases, as I often feel like on the one side just very passionate fans and on the other side those who feel superior because they're Maiden fans. You'll often hear stuff along the lines of:"Oh look I love Iron Maiden, so I'm superior because they like base they're lyrics on books, poetry and history and some of their compositions on classical pieces. They're so smart and so am I." A lot o fans also kinda have a Iron Maiden is the best and everything else sucks attitude. As with most band's fanbases I'm sure it's just a loud minority, but still enough for me to notice. -Antares8001
21. In Flames
Just go to a comment section of any of their 2000s songs. Large part of their fanbase have been complaining about their change of style since Reroute To Remain. Comments like: "Everything after Clayman is utter sh*t" are not that uncommon. You would at least think that after more than 15 years they would have accepted the fact that In Flames changed their style... but they haven't. They still feel the need to complain about it. - tominator
22. Sabaton
they seem to be one of the most shared/recommended bands by newbie/conservative* metal fans. -solar
23. Blut Aus Nord
Shoutout to Paz :P

No In Flames? I'm surprised by that. Just go to a comment section of any of their 2000s songs. Large part of their fanbase have been complaining about their change of style since Reroute To Remain. Comments like: "Everything after Clayman is utter sh*t" are not that uncommon. You would at least think that after more than 15 years they would have accepted the fact that In Flames changed their style... but they haven't. They still feel the need to complain about it.

As far as other bands on this list. Can't really disagree with any of them.

A lot of bands that change styles have a horrible fanbase complaining about the music. Even Metallica

That's true but I feel like in the case of In Flames it's more extreme than with most other bands.

Also the same thing can be said about bands with fanbases that look more like a worshipping cult than a fanbase. Slayer was mentioned in this list as well as Metallica, Pantera... just like with complaining about change of style there are many of those fanbases.

And the thing with singers or losing the soul of the band with the replacement of a member, is as common as complaining about the change in style. Nightwish is mentioned but again same thing happened to Iron Maiden with Blaze Bayley, Judas Priest with Tim Owens, Iced Earth (pick one of the many that isn't Barlow...). And Dream Theater also falls under the same category but in terms of Portnoy leaving and Mangini replacing him on the drums. Just to give a few.
