Do You Agree These Are The 5 Most Irritating Bands/Musicians? [VIDEOS]

I honestly cannot disagree with a single pick on this list.

(Props go to: PJ Media)

(FYI – I’ve only chosen bands/musicians that are still active. Otherwise, Rage Against the Machine and Pete Seeger would’ve both made the list.)

5. Pearl Jam

Oh, Eddie Vedder, what hath fame wrought? A sense of self-importance, that’s what. Pearl Jam has always been a band that wears their politics on their sleeves and actively promotes progressivism. This past year, however, saw Pearl Jam upping their activist ante. They were one of the first bands to lead the charge in boycotting the state of North Carolina because they objected to the state’s attempts to prevent grown men from using the same bathrooms as young girls. Not content to quietly boycott, though, Vedder and company have made it crystal clear what they think of those who aren’t on board with their brand of politics. Having different political opinions than many of your fans is one thing. Frequently reminding those fans that the band believes them to be awful human beings is a good way to irritate people, at the least.

4. Lady Gaga

Part of Lady Gaga’s schtick is over-the-top performance art (which is irritating in its own right), but her constant drumbeat for some of the favorite issues of SJWs pushes her music into the unlistenable. The self-appointed defender of any and all aberrant sexualities, Lady Gaga creates songs that are little more than SJW re-education videos; children (and adults) around the country are being manipulated by a pop singer. Lady Gaga’s swipes at Melania Trump after Donald Trump’s wife made some very pointed and poignant anti-bullying statements came awfully close to bullying.

3. Jay Z and Beyoncé

SPONSORED

While obviously not a band, Jay Z and Beyoncé are both wildly successful musicians who also happen to be married to each other. Using their collective platform to promote Black Lives Matter, Hillary Clinton, and an array of progressive causes, the duo’s activism threatens to overshadow their music. For example, at last year’s Super Bowl, Beyoncé thought it appropriate to disrespect the police and promote violence through her BLM-themed stage show.

2. Bruce Springsteen

Out of all the bands/musicians on this list, I find Bruce Springsteen’s presence the most disappointing. That may be why he’s ranked so high; I’m irritated that I’m irritated by a musician whose music I’ve loved for decades. Sadly, though, whenever I turn on The River, I now have a hard time enjoying the music because of Springsteen’s constant political harping. In case his constant sermonizing wasn’t enough, like Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen made a big deal out of boycotting North Carolina.

1. Green Day

At this point, I’m assuming that Green Day is on the Democratic National Committee’s payroll. If 2004’s American Idiot didn’t turn you off to the faux-punk band, surely the band’s latest album did the trick. Released in October of last year, Revolution Radio is filled to the brim with sophomoric lyrics that fit neatly on the memes of SJWs. In the video for “Troubled Times,” lyrics like “What good is love and peace on earth if it’s exclusive?” are sung over placards demanding, “Unite Against Islamophobia and War!” Green Day is the Michael Moore of music.
