29 Beloved Bands From The 1990s That Were Actually Terrible

Get Started

Admit it: you loved these blah bands.

People who grew up in the 1990s (like me) love to talk about how great the music of their generation was, and music has been going downhill a lot since then. But let's be honest: most of the bands they consider the greatest ever were actually pretty crappy. Whether it was over-produced boy bands (like Color Me Badd) bubblegum electro-pop (like Aqua) everything post-grunge (like Bush) nu-metal (like Korn) rap-metal (like Limp Bizkit) butt rock (like Creed) or just a pretentious folksy band (like The Spin Doctors) that couldn't actually play, there was no short supply of terrible music in the '90s. Sure, you think most of it sounded good then. Maybe it was a different vibe... or maybe we all had terrible tastes that we will have to answer to God for.

When you think of the '90s, maybe you think of grunge, chokers, baggy clothes, and way-too-skinny supermodels. But after you read this slideshow, you will also think of terrible music. Because I promise you, all of the bands in this list are truly terrible. And you know what? I even liked some of these bands, and some of these songs. My guilt and my shame don't make the bands any more talented. So without further ado, here are the worst bands of the '90s. Get Started
