They really don't like crunkcore

I've heard the K-Fed album and I was legitimately upset that it wasn't worse than it was, fucking "Popozao" really got me excited for what might be the worst album ever made

frogbs, Tuesday, 15 September 2020 21:40 (one week ago) link

this is like 50% open bigotry yes

imago, Tuesday, 15 September 2020 21:43 (one week ago) link

I'm curious about that Beach Boys album. And is the Chris Brown on there just because it's Chris Brown?

这是我的显示名称 (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Tuesday, 15 September 2020 21:43 (one week ago) link

Tempted to go with Tom MacDonald because zEiTgEiSt.

hey, trust the fungus! (pomenitul), Tuesday, 15 September 2020 21:43 (one week ago) link

presumably that is a beach boys album where mike love hurled acid over brian wilson's face and locked him out of the recording studio and then tortured some cats for creative inspiration

imago, Tuesday, 15 September 2020 21:45 (one week ago) link

I have just checked out Tom MacDonald and have to stress that this is a vote for the best album, do not vote for this man.

Had no idea Brokencyde was so... prolific.

Good work, Brokencyde.

Brokencyde are just 100 gecs a decade too early

I'm probably voting for Crazy Hits but I need to mull it over

welcome to the 305 is not a bad album at all ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

pitbull's most heinous musical crimes occurred in the 2010s, he wasn't so bad when he was just a guy from miami who rapped in english and spanish

Yes, I've specifically registered an account JUST to review this album. After listening to it and forming my own, personal opinion, I searched online to check out what other people were saying, and wow... I was stunned (and kind of upset) about how biased people STILL are in 2018. The majority of users who have rated this album 1 star or less are clearly trying to jump on the populist "hate whitey" bandwagon, when in reality, the tone of this album far exceeds the average intelligence levels of Joe Public. The lyrics are quite profound in places, and almost every song forces you to question something about your own thoughts and beliefs. It's totally different to anything I've heard before, and all the users complaining about the "ego trip" Tom is (apparently) on are CLEARLY getting the wrong end of the stick. I've been listening to rap and hip-hop since I was 14, and I'm currently 34. I'd kind of given up after mainstream rap gradually went down the toilet over the last decade, but Tom MacDonald has really stepped up to the plate. There's no guns, drugs or bitches - instead, it's hope, irony, regret and promise. It's similar in vein to some of Eminem's more memorable moments maybe 10 years ago (although those are certainly few and far between) but with a good dose of modern politics, race-relations and philosophy thrown in. If you're not afraid to challenge yourself then get your hands on this album right now, I promise, if you approach it with an open mind you won't regret it!

I don’t think I’ve heard a single one of these and not sure if I want to. I did watch a tv live performance of a Corey Feldman cut from this album and it was pretty entertaining in a sad sort of way.

Yeah, that notorious Marshall Mathers five mic classic, Relapse.

billstevejim, Tuesday, 15 September 2020 22:20 (one week ago) link

The "Runaway Love" remix on that Bieber thing is very good imo. I have not heard the rest.

billstevejim, Tuesday, 15 September 2020 22:21 (one week ago) link

^ it also has the "somebody to love" radio/video version with usher on it, i thought that was pretty good among jb's early singles

i don't think i've heard more than one track on any of these except crazy hits which i own lol. oh i guess i heard multiple of the 40-something tracks from the chris brown lp (surely the number of tracks is the reason it's on this list). anyway i will vote crazy hits because "axel f" is a major classic and i probably got a giggle or two out of the rest of it as well

also be advised that the aaron carter album listed is not the one with "aaron's party" on it

The guy on the cover of Let's Start A Riot! looks ridiculous but this music is no worse than the average song I might hear played over the PA at Old Navy

Guayaquil (eephus!), Wednesday, 16 September 2020 03:58 (six days ago) link

Actually, having listened to a bit more, I have to concede it's about twice as bad as the median Old Navy PA track.

Guayaquil (eephus!), Wednesday, 16 September 2020 04:01 (six days ago) link

how is Pat Boone - In a Metal Mood not on this list

Neanderthal, Wednesday, 16 September 2020 04:02 (six days ago) link

assuming we're voting for the best, voted xxxtentacion

https://youtu.be/pRJ6JBuSS7I

the late great, Wednesday, 16 September 2020 04:18 (six days ago) link

even though it's probably the worst x album afaik it's miles better than the rest of this list (crazy frog excepted) ... otoh while there's other good tracks on it as usual abt 20 mins after i start to relisten i start to remember what a fucked up person he was and then i want to listen to something else

the late great, Wednesday, 16 September 2020 04:32 (six days ago) link

Apator - Masturbate in Praise of Black Satan

I’m sure people will be thrilled to know this artist has an even lower rated album called Apator's Stiff Cock Points at the Heavenly Sky (presumably dropped from this list for having too few votes)

Siegbran, Wednesday, 16 September 2020 08:52 (six days ago) link

now seems a good time to revive this old favourite
A new dawn in terror- Brokencyde are surpassed by Attack Attack!'s "Stick Stickly" and the emergence of CRABCORE

Neil S, Wednesday, 16 September 2020 09:03 (six days ago) link

As an unofficial representative of the ILM Rolling Metal threads, I can state that Six Feet Under, is indeed crap but it's way too inoffensive to be the "worst" of anything.

I wanted to make sure I wasn't wrong about it being the only metal thing so I listened to this for thirty bemused seconds.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wckQjVaIa48

I maintain it's "spoken" "word," not metal.

Ironic Punishment Division is also metal, and it is pretty bad, like something Wino would do if he sucked. It's worse than SFU I will concede but again, that's because SFY is boring.

I am not sure if I am voting for the best or worst though?

Loud guitars shit all over "Bette Davis Eyes" (NYCNative), Wednesday, 16 September 2020 15:31 (six days ago) link

this is for the best, not the worst.

这是我的显示名称 (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Wednesday, 16 September 2020 15:32 (six days ago) link

I'm not sure why they're coming down so hard on the Czarci Świt. It's amateurish, sure, but there must be thousands of lo-fi BM tapes just like this.

So it's for those who lack all conviction rather than those who are full of passionate intensity?

hey, trust the fungus! (pomenitul), Wednesday, 16 September 2020 15:34 (six days ago) link

so far I've checked out

Nostalgia Critic's The Wall - dont know who this guy is but this just seems like a project which should have been rejected, as someone who doesn't care about The Wall I'm just not interested

Tom MacDonald - This guy just seems like such a fucking prick in general, also yes his music is terrible too

Onision - An internet comedian who has no idea how to be funny, he's like a less talented Logan Paul, yes this is bad.

Ironic Punishment Division - Metal equivalent to Tom MacDonald, only with much more amateur production values.

Tom Sawyer - Just a noise music prank record, doesn't really work as noise or prank, but there are a thousand albums like this, I've even made one. So far this is the best.

Sounds unspekeably grim, I'll have to check this out.

I was just listening to that and the fact that it's a straight up Don Hertzfeldt ripoff somehow makes it even less funny, as though his moronic delivery weren't enough.

hey, trust the fungus! (pomenitul), Wednesday, 16 September 2020 15:51 (six days ago) link

I went down a rabbit hole and saw that the spirit of crunkcore is still being maintained in 2020 by people like Lexii Raiinbow, who currently has the #9 crunkcore album of all time according to RYM.

NB- I haven't actually listened to this, just comforted to know someone, somewhere is keeping the legacy alive.

Looks like Madeleina Kay, who should actually be on this list, if she's made an album.

这是我的显示名称 (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Wednesday, 16 September 2020 16:01 (six days ago) link

Btw you should also poll RYM's bottom 50 singles of all time after this.

hey, trust the fungus! (pomenitul), Wednesday, 16 September 2020 16:03 (six days ago) link

Had a look, plenty of tom macd on there, all of it labelled "conscious hip hop" presumably as a joke

这是我的显示名称 (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Wednesday, 16 September 2020 16:17 (six days ago) link

Everyone complains about Nickelback and Justin Bieber but at this point I'm pretty sure he's Canada's worst cultural export by a significant margin.

hey, trust the fungus! (pomenitul), Wednesday, 16 September 2020 16:18 (six days ago) link

Apator - Masturbate in Praise of Black Satan -- it's definitely spoken word -- though i didn't listen for more than 5 minutes -- maybe instruments come in later on? ... If one wanted to be absurdly charitable to Masturbate in Praise of Black Satan, one could compare it to the less poetic works of Robert Ashley
