* "[[http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2015/10/01/honey-boo-boo-music-video_n_8226116.html Movin' Up]] by Honey Boo Boo is another blatant attempt by the child pageant and reality tv star to stay famous. The song consists of Honey Boo Boo warbling incoherently into a mic. Huffington Post describes it as diabolical.

* "The Kersal Massive" — the song begins "Got on the bus wi' ma' daysavah / smoked a reefa in da cornah", before decaying into a rhythmless ClusterFBomb and a caustic (or not) TakeThat against the town of Levenshulme, not to mention the rather pointless [[LesserStar Garfunkel]] "Ginger Joe", whose only contribution to the song is "yeah man, yeah man".
** In 2010, a few brave Englishmen doing a televised countdown of the Top 50 Viral Videos tracked down the aforementioned "Ginger Joe" and asked him a few questions about the video. Turns out it was an entry for a competition of some kind and [[EverybodyMustGetStoned they were all as high as a kite]] while making it.
* In the 1990s, Komar, Melamid and Dave Soldier carried out a set of polls of the American public: One concerning what people generally liked the most in music, one concerning what they generally hated. From this, they composed two songs. "The Most Unwanted Song" was the better of the two by a long shot (details can be found [[SoBadItsGood/{{Music}} here]]) [[http://ubu.artmob.ca/sound/komar_melamid/KomarMelamid_The-Most-Wanted-Song.mp3 "The Most Wanted Song,"]] however, was a simpering, pandering, [[TastesLikeDiabetes vomitously saccharine]], miserably written, glacial, insipid, and overly repetitive train wreck bearing [[ClicheStorm cliche after cliche after cliche]] and an off-key guitar solo.

** 3x12 originally had {{Music/Muse}}'s cover of "Feeling Good". In its place came an absolutely pathetic knockoff with the same riffs and some dweeb trying and failing ''hilariously'' to sound like Matt Bellamy while whining some angsty lyrics.

** As a result of one of the game's [[GoodBadBugs many]], [[GameBreakingBug many]] [[ObviousBeta glitches]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHMOorKpIKM the music in the third level of "Lollipops"]] is straight up NightmareFuel. Supposedly it was meant to the play the music from the first level, but it somehow turned it into this. It even changes if you move around and do stuff (results can also vary depending on your emulator). One of the comments said that it sounded like [[VideoGame/EarthBound Giygas]] raping an UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}}!
-->'''Youtube commenter''': The best music, in my opinion, gives you this wonderful soaring feeling in your chest. This, however, manages to provoke the exact opposite effect. I now feel as if I have no soul. This music has made me feel like a simple meat-bag stuffed haphazardly with organs, incapable of turning off the horrid un-sound being pumped into his ears.

* The utterly contemptible video for Alison Gold's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTMs381HGao Shush Up]], attempts to portray her as a sexualised criminal who is put to death in the electric chair. This would all be well and good if it wasn't for the fact that Alison Gold was only 12 when this video was made, and attempts to portray her as being MsFanservice whilst dancing in Stripperific costume with an assortment of similarly scantily-clad females. Alison Gold's music and videos had always attracted negative attention, but this made even fans of "[[SoBadItsGood Chinese]] [[UnfortunateImplications Food]]" cringe hard. The backlash was swift and brutal and resulted in the official video being taken down from Alison Gold's YouTube after only several days. It was so bad that it may even have killed her career before it even began, as she has not released anything since.

* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' is known for its musical guests. Some of them have delivered legendary performances on the show, others... have been legendarily ''bad''.
** Music/AshleeSimpson's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26CN2Q_d8EU embarrassing debacle]] on the season 30 episode hosted by Creator/JudeLaw is one of the most infamous moments in the show's history, revealing to the world the ugly truth about her lip-syncing. It's among the most notorious live performances of the decade, ending with the humiliating sight of Ashlee doing an awkward 'hoe-down' before leaving the stage while the band plays on and the show cuts to commercial. She became a national laughingstock and her generation's Music/MilliVanilli literally overnight... but it wasn't this performance that would end her career for good. That came a few months later, and is described a couple of entries below.
** Music/{{Eminem}}'s performance of [[http://truba.com/video/97196/ "Just Lose It"]] on the season 30 episode hosted by Creator/KateWinslet was a prime demonstration of horrible. The lip-syncing was obvious, Eminem looked lifeless on stage, and at one point (around 1:17), he can be seen licking his lips while the track played on without him. The worst part? This was just ''one week'' after Ashlee Simpson's 'hoe-down', so both he and the ''SNL'' producers should've known better.

** While a lovely studio singer, Music/LanaDelRey has proven that she is definitely ''not'' a good live singer. She [[http://gawker.com/5876449/lana-del-reys-infamous-snl-performance performed]] her viral hit tune "Video Games" on the season 37 episode hosted by DanielRadcliffe, and it was painful to watch. She seemed to mumble most of the words and was constantly out of breath, and at times it almost sounded like she didn't even know the words to her own song. The performance has gotten her a bad rap and despite being talented, she recently has become more known for her bad ''SNL'' performance. In fact, ''SNL itself'' made fun of it on the next new episode (hosted by Channing Tatum with musical guest Bon Iver) by having Creator/KristenWiig as Lana Del Rey interrupt Weekend Update to talk about her horrible performance.
** The season 40 episode hosted by Creator/JimCarrey saw Music/IggyAzalea and MØ perform their hit [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hh9cbInp_Og "Beg For It"]]. While Iggy was in her element, this was MØ's first televised live performance, and her inexperience combined with technical issues produced an utter disaster on her part. Her singing and dancing were badly out-of-step with the beat of the song, and she looked like she had a bad case of stage fright. She was so embarrassed by her performance that she [[https://twitter.com/MOMOMOYOUTH/status/526467603121045504 publicly apologized]] for it.

* Music/AshleeSimpson strikes again, this time with an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bY2cN3BgPsU utterly dreadful performance]] of her single "La La" at the [[http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6791368/ Orange Bowl]] on January 4, 2005. Coming just a couple of months after her ''SNL'' disaster (see above), this time she was committed to proving that she could sing live. It backfired badly -- her vocals are so hideously off-key that it's not clear that she's even trying to sing as opposed to just shouting the lyrics. When she's done, ''the entire stadium'' is booing, and a shout of "you suck!" can be heard from the crowd if you have very good ears (provided they hadn't self-destructed from being subjected to three minutes of terrible singing). It stood in sharp contrast to Music/KellyClarkson's performance just before her, which earned plaudits despite being plagued by technical problems. Between her performances on ''SNL'' and at the Orange Bowl, Ashlee's once-promising pop music career [[CreatorKiller imploded in an instant]].
* In a strange meta-example, there's the case of Spinal Tap, a parody "band" created for the mockumentary ''Film/ThisIsSpinalTap''. A few years after the movie was released, "Spinal Tap" did a live stage tour. The Folksmen of ''Film/AMightyWind'' fame (played by the same actors as Spinal Tap) "opened" for Spinal Tap. A significant portion of the audience ''completely'' missed the joke, apparently thinking Spinal Tap was a real heavy metal band, and didn't understand why the opening act for the concert was a trio singing folk songs. In one memorable instance in New York the audience actually attempted to ''boo the Folksmen off the stage'' in favor of... the exact same people.
* Every year, the UsefulNotes/SuperBowl halftime show serves as a platform for some of America's biggest pop musicians. Some artists have used the occasion to knock it out of the park... but others have sent their careers into a tailspin.
** In the early years of the Super Bowl, halftime was mainly a showcase for university marching bands and drill teams. That changed when Up With People, a '60s collective that formed to counter the anti-establishment views of the counterculture[[note]]The group was formed by Moral Re-Armament, a severely conservative Christian cult; it may be worth noting that Alcoholics Anonymous also sprang from MR (back when it was known as the Oxford Group)[[/note]], performed four halftime shows in 1976, '80, '82, and '86. As [[http://deadspin.com/5980867/remembering-up-with-people-the-gay-quasi-cult-that-invented-the-super-bowl-halftime-show noted]] by ''Deadspin'', they pretty much invented the modern Super Bowl halftime show that truly came into its own in TheNineties... but they also brought with them their [[TastesLikeDiabetes hyper-saccharine]] sensibilities, which by TheEighties were seen as embarrassing. These days, their performances are still a punchline that often get named as being among the worst Super Bowl halftime shows in history.

* "United We Stand: What More Can I Give" in Washington, D.C. stands as concrete proof that yes, benefit concerts ''can'' go wrong, even those dedicated to 9/11. Even after delaying the concert for longer than three hours, technical difficulties still pervaded every set, thanks to an inept sound crew--mics gave off feedback on a regular basis, the visual presentation was loaded with bugs, and in one case, a performer's backing track just plain stopped mid-performance. Several of the sets had to be cut for time last-minute, some outright omitted, and in several cases, the performer in question never actually showed up. Many performers carelessly used the US flag as a stage prop, often desecrating it as a result (which flew in the face of the show's rather patriotic tone). Music/MichaelJackson, who got top billing, was the organizer, and was meant to end the concert -- he only performed one song, and he lip-synched. To top it all off, this was being filmed for TV (rather than broadcast live), which meant the show was padded out even further by the recording of intros and outros for all the sets. Much of the crowd, including several performers, left well before the grand finale featuring Jackson and the remaining stars. [[http://www.salon.com/2001/10/22/jackson_benefit/ Salon]] and [[http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1450229/20011022/story.jhtml MTV]] provide the details.

The organizers strongly discouraged outside food and drink, so many expected to dine at the vendors inside the concert area... only to be met by [[http://web.archive.org/web/20001012225457/http://www.usmusicvault.com/woodstock99.html blatant price gouging]]. On top of the $150 tickets just to get in, bottles of water and soda went for $4, and ten-inch personal pizzas for $12 -- and keep in mind that this was in 1999 dollars. This and the aforementioned heat problems led guests to tear apart the water fountains to access free water, creating mud pits around them. Supermarkets in nearby [[UsefulNotes/NewYorkState Rome, New York]] saw long lines and shortages of stock as guests who didn't want to pay concert prices for food and drink picked them apart.

There were only a hundred showers (fifty each for men and women) that one had to wait in a long line to use, and with no proper drainage for any of them, the waste water flowed straight into the camping area. Garbage cans overflowed as underpaid sanitation workers simply walked away from their jobs. The parking situation was bad enough that there was a three-mile line of cars stretching to the event, some of which had overheated or run out of gas idling and had been abandoned. Some say this alone drove the crowds to riot. John Scher, the event's planner who had lost money organizing the previous Woodstock '94 (itself a TroubledProduction, but not nearly to the same degree), admitted that all of this cost-cutting and price-gouging was done in [[http://ultimateclassicrock.com/woodstock-99-riots/ an attempt to have the event turn a profit]] this time.\\

* [=TomorrowWorld=] 2015 could very well be described as [[https://thump.vice.com/en_us/article/how-tomorrowworld-became-an-epic-disaster-of-near-riots-and-looming-lawsuits the electronic music festival equivalent to Woodstock 1999 for similar reasons]]. The event, which was created in 2013 as a sister festival to the Belgian music festival Tomorrowland but held in America, started off swimmingly. But by the second night, bad weather kicked in and things went downhill fast. The festival grounds (a grassy field near the town of Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia) became saturated and muddy, causing a massive backing up of transportation services. Attendees that weren't camping on festival grounds were forced to wait for hours on end, putting up with cold temperatures and a lack of basic necessities like food and water, some growing frustrated enough to just try walking back to town. The final day was no better, with attendees that had left unable to reenter and enjoy the artists lined up to play (who themselves were not happy with how the event's poor planning led to these problems, but tried to make the best out of the situation). At the end of the day, the event's organizer [=ID&T=] Belgium not only had to refund several festival-goers, but have also dealt with a major PR blow that has led to disgruntled attendees stating they never want to return again and curious possible future attendees not wanting to risk next year having the same mishaps. Both electronic music news outlets and business insiders have stated that unless they do some really good damage control, [[FranchiseKiller TomorrowWorld 2015 could very well be the last TomorrowWorld]], and indeed the 2016 festival was cancelled, putting the future of it into question.

* Brian Wilson's (yes, the one from Music/TheBeachBoys) song "Smart Girls", released only as a radio promo from the unreleased album ''Sweet Insanity'', in which Brian ''raps'' over samples from many of his earlier hits. The results are... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sz0SnpN_O00 sad.]] Unsurprisingly, Creator/SireRecords point-blank rejected the album once they heard it. In the interest of total fairness, it is important to add that Brian at this point was dominated by [[TheSvengali his Svengali-like]], highly unethical "therapist" Eugene Landy, whose meddling behaviour was already known, and remarked on by Andy Paley during the sessions for Brian's solo SelfTitledAlbum. At least one good thing came out of the ''Sweet Insanity'' fiasco - it resulted in a lawsuit that allowed Brian to disentangle himself from Landy and later undergo a CareerResurrection, while Landy himself was hit with more legal action and lost his medical license due to the gross malpractice and abuses that he had indulged in towards Brian.
* [[XtremeKoolLetterz X-tReMe PoWeR]] is a band composed of children [[TotallyRadical trying to]] [[RuleAbidingRebel be cool]], and their only song, "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeQUlr4Xc3s Respect and Obey Authority]]", reflects this. On a technical level, the vocals switch between monotone and sing-songy, the instrumental is repetitive and bland, and the rhymes lack in variety or creativity. It's also a spectacular example of a CluelessAesop: the lyrics sound like something a dictator would say to their people ("[[BlindObedience Do what [we] say, and everything will be okay]]!"). Naturally, Youtube commenters assume this is propaganda.

* Ex-Cheetah Girl Kiely Williams tried to reinvent herself as DarkerAndEdgier in an apparent attempt to cash in on ''Rated R''-era {{Rihanna}}, but instead comes off as the most vapid female on Earth. Here it is: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J96ujGstSUw Spectacular.]]" A touching tribute to binge drinking, unprotected sex with strangers, and date rape. Sample lyrics: ''"Last I remember I was [[ShoutOut face down, ass up]], clothes off".'' Brings a lump to your throat, doesn't it? Not only did it effectively [[CreatorKiller end her career]], she eventually tried to justify making it by claiming it's actually a protest against the behaviors in the song.

** To show how the vocals ruin it, the soundtrack also features an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWJfQWHUNTk instrumental cover of Parts 1 and 2 of "Another Brick In The Wall".]] While [[EndingFatigue overtly long]], there's nothing wrong with the performance. Then the video there changes to the full version at 5 minutes...
* ''Film/MonsterAGoGo'' already has an entry in the [[Horrible/{{Film}} film category]], but the score they gave it is just the icing on the cake. To elaborate, it consists mainly of sparse, jangly {{Scare Chord}}s played on a Fender Rhodes electric piano and [[SensoryAbuse amplified to distortion]]; it's atonal, harsh, and probably meant to be creepy, but just gets annoying after a while.

* On a musical level, Jenna Rose's "O.M.G" was a considerable step up from "My Jeans". [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1VVT3xTBb0 The video]], however, is utterly reprehensible, given that she was only twelve years old when she filmed it. From the opening crawl of "Jenna Rose as the Teen Boom-Boom Doll," you know what it's going to be from the start -- three lengthy, unsettling minutes of an adolescent girl being portrayed as a sex symbol. On top of that is the apathetic acting (the lipsync hardly tries to be convincing, and the backup dancers appear at points to really not want to be there) and a lighting technician who has no idea what he's doing.

* The utterly contemptible video for Alison Gold's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTMs381HGao Shush Up]], attempts to portray her as a sexualised criminal who is put to death in the electric chair. This would all be well and good if it wasn't for the fact that Alison Gold was only 12 when this video was made, and attempts to portray her as being MsFanservice whilst dancing in Stripperific costume with an assortment of similarly scantily clad females. Alison Gold's music and videos had always attracted negative attention, but this made even fans of "[[SoBadItsGood Chinese]] [[UnfortunateImplications Food]]" cringe hard. The backlash was swift and brutal and resulted in the official video being taken down from Alison Gold's YouTube after only several days. It was so bad that it may even have killed her career before it even began, as she has not released anything since.

* While most will agree that {{Music/Rush}}'s song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMSFqXGZ5TQ "Time Stand Still"]] is one of their best ever songs, the video, on the other hand, has next to no supporters because of how awful it is. The video shows the band and guest singer Aimee Mann flying around in mid-air through some studio and over some lazy chroma-keyed backgrounds, with next to no effort put into it looking at least mildly effective. The video hasn't shown up on any one of their DVD releases and the band remains unusually quiet about it, and the video continues to top "worst music videos ever" lists today.

Jackson had not yet been tainted by career-destroying scandal when this arrived in mid-1993, and Murphy had managed a pop hit with "Party All the Time" in TheEighties, yet this ''still'' wasn't a hit. The clip's been compared to Music/DavidBowie and Mick Jagger's notorious "Dancing in the Street" video due to its copious amounts of HomoeroticSubtext. But while that was SoBadItsGood (at worst), this just pairs a bland song with lazy greenscreen visuals.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSurzeGvPrQ "Accidental Racist"]] by Music/BradPaisley and Music/LLCoolJ is the ultimate example of how ''not'' to do a song about racism. The intended meaning of the song was an attempt to find common ground between {{Good Ol Boy}}s and inner-city black folk, but instead it makes both white Southerners and African-Americans look bad. Paisley comes off as whiny, defensive, and ignorant of the loaded history that [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar the Confederate flag]] holds with a large segment of the population, while LL Cool J comes off as a walking "hood rat" stereotype with his lyrics about sagging pants and gold chains.

* The 100% Silk 2016 West Coast Tour met with disaster two shows in, at the Ghost Ship in Oakland, California. The venue, a repurposed warehouse, had never obtained permits and never been formally inspected. It was more-or-less {{MacGyver|ing}}ed into an artists' collective. The owner had pretty much foregone any form of fire safety, and the building had, in several aspects, fallen into neglect and clutter. The stage proper was on the makeshift second floor, accessible solely via jerry-rigged wooden staircases. This meant that when a fire broke out on the first floor, many of the concertgoers didn't realize it until it was already beyond any hope of control. By the time the fire had reached the stage, escape was damn near impossible. In the end, the entire building went up in flames, killing over half the performers and more than thirty others. Golden Donna, the organizer and would-be main event, cancelled the entire tour. The incident cast doubt on the fate of artists' collectives countrywide, and sparked citywide action regarding live-work spaces and fire safety.

* Music/{{Creed}}'s December '02 concert in Chicago. Scott Stapp had downed a bottle of whiskey beforehand. It reacted strongly with the medication he was already taking for a throat infection, dooming the show to failure. He mumbled along to five or so songs, then decided to take a nap. When he realized he hadn't performed a full set, he showed up again, and continued singing--completely independent of the band--before passing out onstage. Unsurprisingly, it was a key contributor to their 2003 break-up and got the band in a lot of legal trouble.
