* ''Music/HavingFunWithElvisOnStage'' is often considered one of the worst albums of all time. "But," you say, "Music/ElvisPresley was a great singer and conversationalist, plus he cracked some good jokes! How can an Elvis album be that bad?!" Imagine an Elvis concert ''without'' said music, interesting monologues, and all the jokes that make sense. What remains is this album, a solid 35 minutes of Elvis just...talking, with all context removed so you have no clue what he's talking about. It was a ploy by his manager to make money off him by releasing an album RCA had no rights to. Elvis was infuriated and ''humiliated'' by the album's release.

** Music/MileyCyrus' performance[[note]](Un)fortunately, the link no longer works due to the video being taken down[[/note]] at the 2013 edition. She sounded hideously off-key, like she was either high or out of breath, while going over the top with sexual imagery in a transparent attempt to shock. Almost immediately, the performance was criticized and condemned from all quarters, with Music/{{Rihanna}} and Music/OneDirection's unimpressed reaction in the audience going viral.[[note]]Another supposed reaction shot of Creator/WillSmith and his family looking shocked was also circulated, but it turned out it was actually their positive reaction to Music/LadyGaga's performance earlier in the night.[[/note]]

%% Please do not, for the love of God, try to add music from Crazy Bus; it has too many supporters for it to be truly horrible, making it SoBadItsGood at best.

%% Do not even attempt to add "Jedi Rocks" to this list. The opinions of the Fan Dumb do not represent those of the entire fanbase, and like Crazy Bus the song has just enough fans not to qualify.

** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1hiGhIUl_Q Too Hot]]" is the only song off of either album that gets any respect whatsoever, mainly because it sounds very loosely like something that could've come off of ''[[NewSoundAlbum Jagged]] [[SurprisinglyImprovedSequel Little]] [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Pill]]''. That said, even that song still has its share of people who absolutely hate its guts.
** Alanis' early career also served as the inspiration for Robin Sparkles, the uber-Canadian TeenIdol from ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' who grew up into the dark, snarky tomboy Robin Scherbatsky, but not before providing the show with several of its [[Funny/HowIMetYourMother most hilarious moments]]. The writers originally wanted to bring Alanis herself in for the Robin Sparkles episodes and have her and Robin be a former pop duo in-universe, but it never worked out.

(Her later single, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdEExeQ8D8U "P.S. I Love You"]], is in turn a parody of the DarkerAndEdgier ''Jagged Little Pill''-era Alanis.)

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oSzgAcgjuE Ostie]] is the black metal solo project of a man simply named "Prince Grothmer the Cruel ov Cobaltia" from Toronto. He's been involved in ten album releases since his start in 2012. His albums have received two reviews on Metal-Archives; A !% and a 2% rating. His 'screams' are quiet rasps into a microphone, mixed louder than anything else on the track. His lyrics are ridiculously over-the-top, with lines such as "You'll be frozen with hate". The backing music is a drum machine and what sounds like a guitar being tuned. To say that people are still unsure [[PoesLaw if he's serious or not]] is an ''understatement'' ; Some people think he's doing it as a joke but his social profiles play it completely straight. One reviewer even said that he hopes Ostie continues on, not because he likes it, but because he wants to see how much worse the music could possibly get.

Added DiffLines:

* Similar to the Music/{{Cryptopsy}} example above, Music/SuicideSilence's self titled release. While Suicide Silence themselves were a LoveItOrHateIt act, they still were respected, especially with their risky decision to continue the band with Eddie Hermida following [[AuthorExistenceFailure the death of original vocalist Mitch Lucker]]. The self titled has been met with ''very'' negative reviews due to very flimsy GenreAdultery change from {{Deathcore}} to ''{{Nu Metal}}'', even [[http://exclaim.ca/music/article/suicide_silence-suicide_silence one reviewing saying it's "a garage band sloppily covering Korn and Deftones through a microphone they found in a dumpster"]] and Rock Sound saying [[http://www.rocksound.tv/reviews/read/suicide-silence-suicide-silence the band got rid of everything that made them good]]. Hermida's attempts to do clean vocals such as "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQgMTuyjATk Doris"]] and "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_qNVDOeCag Dying in a Red Room]]" are botched to an incredibly degree and instrumentation messy that it makes [[InsultToRocks Limp Bizkit look like Picasso]], worse considering it comes off more as a JumpingTheShark moment due to [[BringMeTheHorizon another band doing the similar thing but with more success]].

* [=RuPaul=] has released multiple albums with several catchy EarWorm hits ... however, she had the bright idea of letting the drag queens from ''RupaulsDragRace'' cover her music for Seasons 6 and 7, with abums named ''The [=CoverGurlz=]'' and ''The [=CoverGurlz=] 2''. While there is the rare, decently covered song (by queens who can actually sing like Adore Delano and Courtney Act), the rest are usually auto-tuned ''so'' much, with the queens giving such a half-assed performance, that most of the tracks are almost too painful to even sit through.

* It certainly wasn't [[http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/philip-anselmo-denies-being-racist-after-white-power-shoutout-at-dimebash-event/ the only reason]] the January 22nd, 2016 [[Music/{{Pantera}} Dimebash]] event attracted a great deal of ire, but Phil Anselmo's performances that night were absolutely embarrassing. Chief among them was a cover of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iznjos9Qi7Q "A New Level"]] with (among others) Robb Flynn, Rex Brown, and Dave Grohl that was preceded by obnoxious rambling (which was not restricted to that song alone; he probably spent more time going on drunken tangents than actually performing) from a clearly inebriated Phil (to add insult to injury, Brown was visibly irritated by the second minute in); furthermore, he also blew his lines twice and made the whole band start over again, calling the crowd "a buncha pussies" after the first failed take. Phil also slurred his words when he was otherwise able to perform his parts, and, much to Flynn's sheer disbelief, mouthed "white power" and gave the Hitler salute right there on stage during the first chorus. He went on to bungle [[Music/{{Motorhead}} "Ace of Spades"]], not so much singing as bellowing into the mic to the general tune of the song(complete with audible slurring) and capped it off with a drunken backwards stagger that nearly caused him to fall over until Grohl caught him. To finish off the night, he rambled for so long that [[Music/TypeONegative Johnny Kelly]] actually took the microphone away from him; it was about a minute after that he capped things with the infamous salute and cry that went viral. He ruined not only the whole evening, but the audience's respect for him.

* ''"This song is bad. Not SoBadItsGood, and not Music/MichaelJackson 'Bad'. Just plain '''''bad.'''''"'' That's ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' regarding the ill-conceived 1985 charity single "[[http://io9.com/5473162/doctor-in-distress--the-worst-charity-single-of-all-time-and-space Doctor In Distress]]". You can practically hear the show's last remaining scrap of dignity being wrenched away. Colin Baker reportedly described his participation as "one of the worst decisions [he] ever made".
