Apr 25, 2009 Fake singers in the 'Milli Vanilli' mold. /auto-tune-rap-app-for-android.html. The Auto-Tune Pitch Correcting Plug-In was introduced by Antares Audio Technology in 1997 and continues to be among the leading pitch correction software programs, and was the first pitch correction technology that worked in real-time, allowing it to be used during a live performance instead of just. Apr 17, 2012 Milli Vanilli Member Says Auto-Tune Is No Different Than Lip Syncing. If you’ve been wondering what the second half of Milli Vanilli is doing these days, Fabrice Morvan (pictured) is doing just fine. So much so, that he recently took it upon himself to sound off on the state of today’s music. Mar 09, 2020 Provided to YouTube by DistroKid Milli Vanilli Texacal Milli Vanilli ℗ TEXACAL music Released on: 2020-03-09 Auto-generated by YouTube. Fabrice Morvan, formerly of the once popular group Milli Vanilli, recently spoke out about the usage of auto-tune and other types of voice-altering technology which a lot of artists use nowadays. He says what current singers do today is no different from what he and Rob Pilatus did years ago. The awards’ 52-year history), Milli Vanilli returned the hardware at a heated November 1990 press con-ference. Morvan says it was “the right thing to do,” but he questions artists today who correct their vocals with technology like Auto-Tune. “If the machine is doing everything for you, is it really any different?” MY NO.
There has been some good music..but then there has been some bad too!..
First off..I dedicate this to Linda Ronstadt.. Now..Ronstadt rocks, but what she's going through sucks! She now has Parkinson's Disease which means she'll NEVER sing again! Maybe Ronstadt and Michael J. Fox can make commercials for Parkinson's awareness. I know I'm returning to the 'Worst' Trilogy, but this year has been unlucky for me. I write these articles because I do them for entertainment reasons, now I can post them on the forum, but..where's the fun in that? Who can be bad in music? Well..this is the reason why I have this list, and here it is..The 16 WORST Bands, Musicians, or Music!
#16..The Cast From 'Glee'
Wait..how can a TV Series be on this list? Well..First, the cast of 'Glee' are actors/actresses. Second, if you heard their songs by either watching this show or from their soundtrack..you'd rather hear a drunk man sing at a karaoke bar. Third, not all actors/actresses can sing! Listen to this.. This is like 'High School Musical' grown-up! Give me Nell Carter, Dan Aykroyd, or even Richard Harris, at least they can sing a tune without sounding like garbage..
No Chris Crocker..I CAN'T Leave Britney Alone! Sure, she went through a tough time by losing her aunt, getting a divorce, and having children..but many people have been there. But shaving your head, flashing your vajayjay, and NOT taking care of your kids is just making you a prone to the tabloids! Your music is sub-par and from the 'Mickey Mouse Club' Alumni..even Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguleria grew-up! Maybe one day, you'll be better..or not!
I can see why Johnny Rotten from The Sex Pistols called Green Day 'Sell-Outs'..with 'American Idiot', Green Day did that! Sure 'Anarchy in the U.K.' and 'God Save The Queen' were legend compared to Green Day's 'American Idiot', those songs were legend..'American Idiot' is just calling most of the United States Dumbasses! Look Green Day, you're just punk wannabees! And to think..after 'American Idiot'..where did Green Day go?
Amy Grant..she was the first to cross-over from Christian to Rock Music, though Cartman thought Creed was the first to do so. Amy Grant seems to have that way to talk about Jesus in a pop song, but she does have a few good songs in her library of songs..what the heck am I talking about and why did I put her on this list?!
NEW #13..Michael Bolton
Okay, soft-rock was popular in the 90's and though Amy Grant had good Christian songs, Michael Bolton is the real deal! His mullet, bad covers of classic 60's love songs, and 'Can I Touch You There'? He must be on my list of lousy bands, musicians, and that! Does Michael Bolton have a career now after the early 90's?
NO WORST Music List can be complete without Milli Vanilli! Who should we blame it on..the media? MTV? The Rain? George W. Bush? Well, with Milli Vanilli getting a Grammy and later having it taken away in 1990 because they didn't sing one note..this would tarnish music for the 90's until Nirvana. Milli Vanilli was planning to come back in 1998, but sadly Rob Pilatus died. Fab Morvan STILL makes music today, and uses his own voice!
Okay..what's wrong with 'All Summer Long'? The answer is..It's unoriginal! Kid Rock just put 'Werewolves of London' by Warren Zevon and 'Sweet Home Alabama' by Lynard Skynard and using his own lyrics? I call that lazy! And what the hell does 'Bawitdaba' mean? Sure, many classic rockers have covered 'All Summer Long' with 'Werewolves of London' and 'Sweet Home Alabama', but where's the heart Robert James Ritchie?
Now Creed had a moment where they had songs with Christian meanings, but when the lead singer had a vid with Kid Rock (don't ask) I ask..does Creed have heart? No..it looks like they were in it for the money. If I want to hear some band who's in it for the money..I'll listen to Frank Zappa's 'We're only in it for the Money'! And if Zappa was around in 2001..he'd tell Creed the same thing!
DUE TO THE FACT THAT MARILYN MANSON VIDEOS ARE HIGHLY GRAPHIC AND CONTROVERSIAL..I CAN'T SHOW ANY, BUT I CAN SHOW YOU A SONG HE COVERED..
Yes..Marilyn Manson covered that song! All he wants to do is shock-rock! I'm sorry, but you're 20 years TOO late! Alice Cooper (Vincent Furnier) beat you to that and he's more talented than Brian Wagner (AKA-Marilyn Manson). Was Marilyn Manson the answer to Rock in the 90's? No wonder rock was sleeping in 1997! Marilyn Manson is more like Charlie Manson than Marilyn Monroe when it comes to music!
Okay, Lawrence Welk squeaked-out of this list because of his bubble machine, his German accent, and his candy-ass monkey suits. But Mitch Miller..is the real deal! I can forgive him for his sappy sing-along songs, I can forgive him for making the goatee square in the 50's, and I can even forgive him being the critic of Rock Music since then it was (in his opinion) baby food..but when The Beatles did this song.. ..you needed a fork and knife for rock and roll! I can surpass all that. But what I CAN'T forgive Mitch Miller is..what he did to Frank Sinatra when Miller was Columbia Records! Miller made Sinatra sing the crappiest songs of all time, but maybe the crappiest would be 'Mama Will Bark', just listen!..
Even Sinatra Fans called this the WORST Sinatra Song Ever! If you said the song to Sinatra, you'll need a new face. Even many Disc-jockeys flipped this single to the B-Side, which was more Sinatra at this time.. Like Britney Spears in his time..he was going through a bad relationship, having strains by his record company (Columbia), and almost died in 1951! After Sinatra left Columbia for Capitol he gave Mitch Miller something in 1957..'Fuck Off, Keep Moving!..' Now whose 100th Birthday will be celebrated? In 2011..no one gave a shit about Mitch Miller, but in 2015..The Chairman of the Board WILL be recognized! Mark..My..Words!..
Kanye West Barges In.. Wait, I'm a gonna let you finish. I'm a gonna let you finish! Thanks for NOT letting me be on the #1 Spot, but I shall inform you that 50 Cent should be #1!
Now THAT'S the problem with Kanye West! Sure, he has Gold-Digger..but he has to be getting attention from barging on the stage at the MTV Music Video Awards to blaming Bush after Hurricane Katrina. Can't you keep your mouth shut? Your music sucks as well! You weren't raised in urbia, you were raised with a well-to-do family! Even Elvis knows about the harder times than you! No wonder he's forgotten, because he never encountered this.. Kanye..do yourself a favor and go to Detroit! It's the worst city in the nation and it's beyond your comfort zone..it IS a Ghetto! I, myself live below the poverty line though I'm NOT in the poorest big city in the nation, but it's hard out there!
Yes..'Highway to Hell' made many Bible-Thumpers object and parents ask why. I ask..why does the guitarist Angus Young HAVE to wear that School Uniform? You're in your 50's, even Jaleel White (who played Steve Urkel) stopped being a nerd after 'Family Matters' ended! Their music is just the same and if AC/DC is on the Highway to Hell..they can have it! Their music is just Pop-Metal and almost the same song. Also Young..wear longer pants, otherwise people will think you have Jerry Sandusky Syndrome!
If my brother made this list, he'd put Bon Jovi at #1. But I'm making this list and I feel that Bon Jovi deserves to be on here because they made hair-metal to just shave their hair! Now I can see why people in South Park would want to kick Jon Bon Jovi right square in the balls!
Milli Vanilli No Different From Auto Tune Music Today Song
I, myself feel that they aren't true heavy-metal. But I do chuckle with the line in 'Livin' on a Prayer' because people think the line 'It doesn't a difference if we make it or not' sounds like 'It doesn't make if we're naked on not'!
Yes..we ALL wanna be rock stars, but Nickelback made it that anyone can be a rock star. They either got their name after watching football or having someone say 'Here's your Nickel Back'. They just have no talent. I can take any bad band anyday, but Nickelback is in a league of their own. But then again..
#3..Anyone who was on 'American Idol'
Question: How do you lower the bar? Answer: By having a show where anyone can sing! And that's what 'American Idol' is! Let's have a contest on who can sing and if they suck..they go home and cry! Well..Simon Cowell is gone, but this show has tarnish music forever! When it came on 10 years ago..I couldn't watch this show having people be degraded since they have no talent. Unfortunately..one made his untalent into a cult following, enter.. Yes..William Hung made his untalent into a cult following with 'She Bangs', a song done by Ricky Martin and if Martin redid the song it should be 'He Bangs'..if you know what I mean!
Where to start? Miley Cyrus? Jonas Brothers? Justin Beiber? How about..Kidz Bop?.. That was the beginning of the end for music! In a decade where we had NO entertainment quality, we got Tween Music in 2001! When I was a child, there was no such thing as Tween Music..or Tweens in that regard! I was into The Beatles at that time, so if I want to hear bubblegum music (which it should be called) give me this..
So music like Justin Beiber ISN'T original..what is now tween music was once called bubblegum music!
In 1998, Cher brought us a new invention that would make her voice 100% in 'Believe'! Even Disco is better than Auto-Tune Music! I wonder if her ex Sonny Bono heard it then died? I wonder if Sinatra heard this and died? I even wonder if Paul McCartney's 1st wife Linda heard this and died? Yes..this song came-out in 1998! This song basically gave us the auto-tune..or as I would like to call it, the Drum Machine for vocalists! Look Cher..you did well without the auto-tune, this is a song!..
No auto-tune, it has natural vocals. I'd like to see The Black-Eyed Peas sing a song without auto-tune..that'll happen when Cleveland wins a Championship! Sinatra, Elvis, The Beatles, nor Elton John depended on auto-tune..It's the work of the devil! But to end Part 2 of 3 of this Trilogy, I feel that I should give you my feel about this year and that some actors/actresses CAN sing.. Now..do you agree with this list? It's okay that you don't, we live in free countries that can share opinions. If you think AC/DC Rocks but The Beatles should be on this list..okay. Feedback is good and so is opinions. Stay Tuned for Part 3 where I review bad movies!

Amy Grant is so hot I'd eat her shit.
Ok, ok, ok - I know this is written with tongue in.. My comments don't begin 'til I saw the Kanye West thing (I don't listen/never heard him - seriously) so, I don't care about that. I'm perplexed about you saying (re: Elvis) ('no wonder'..he's forgotten ..' I'm no Elvis/Graceland nut, I do like his voice, but, I can't believe he's even close to 'forgotten.' Kanye - as most of these others will as well - will be forgotten. The thing about 'tween music' (which I wholeheartedly agree) and 'bubblegum;' The longest-lasting form of (pop) music is/has been bubblegum. You even put up probably the best piece of bubblegum ever - The Archies'Sugar, Sugar. Bubblegum, simply because it's written off as so innocuous - is the music with the most salacious lyrics imaginable (just really think about Sugar, Sugar, for example). End of Part One
As for ‘tween,’ I never heard of it either. It's just a marketing gimmick, but unfortunately, this one tries to take ‘rough’ music, & ‘smooth it out'by having little bobble-headed annoying prepubescent's ‘sing.’ The last thing I'm going to bemoan is AutoTune (is it one or two words?) While I found the Cher song annoying, it actually wasn't bad. But, like anything else that's a tool - which she overused for a point, is now being over (mis)used - not just for us singers of ‘modest’ talent, but to supplant ‘singers’ of no talent (no names mentioned, but there's many to pick from).
AC/DC? Really? That's insane you put them on this list.
The Sex Pistols were as manufactured as any other boy band of recent memory. Not that I'm an advocate for Green Day, but Johnny Rotten is probably one of the last people who should be calling other musicians sellouts.
Yes - and no (manufactured, that is). Yes - Malcolm McClaren came in and did his..'stuff.' But, no - the emotions of Johnny Lydon, et al, were (quite) real. You can't (now or then) tell Mr. Rotten to 'become' anything.' Sid. Poor Sid. He was just a little boy, who was horribly used.
Only down side to an article like this is no two people can agree on the content. (AC/DC? Really? ) The only other thing I question is Milli Vanilli. Is your dislike for them based on their fraud or did you always hate them?
No Jonas Bros? No Miley Cyrus? No One Direction? No Taylor Swift? No Lil Wayne or TI or any other modern rapper? I can't agree on AC/DC and Bon Jovi being on the list.
Mentioning those that you listed might end up making the article more of a flop. A lot of people from the internet community are already aware of how much they suck so just talking about them again sounds pretty boring if you ask me. I find it odd how opinionated articles get bombarded with hate. I'm one of the few that hates Adventure Time because to me it's nothing but hipster crap and loose on originality and yet there's not a care in the world on how I think about it. That's how all opinions should be. If you can't accept one's opinion, just ignore it and move on

Being a musician is just like any other job. I earn royalties, licensing agreements, I do session work and play live. And I get paid just like anyone else. I just happen to work from a home studio and play music live on stage, no different than you going to your job everyday. It's a job just like any other, based on a skill that I have, that others may not. Just like being a soldier, a doctor, a lawyer, a pro athlete..whatever, I do a job just like everyone else does, if you like it you buy it, if you don't, then you don't. It's like being a contractor. If you like my work, then you hire me to build your house, if you don't..then you hire someone else..This article would be like you saying 'I don't like Levi jeans, I prefer Wrangler'..so I'm going to write an article about how much Levi jeans suck.That's dumb, immature, and just a huge waste of time. Your not suppose to like everything, that's why there are 500 brands and 500 companies making the same product. It's called options
*you're *supposed You're welcome
You're absolutely right. But, then most writers wouldn't have much to write about, and, besides - 'like/dislike' list are fun to read. Mr. Blackwell used to do it about the 'best/worst' dressed. It's just a way to let off some steam.

When you hear a Green Day song today, you know who it is immediately. That's all that any musician or artist could ever ask for in a career, to have your work be so heavily circulated and easily recognizable, on a world wide scale, that millions of people know your songs and your band just by listening to a few seconds of a song. That's Awesome! It's like McDonald's. Don't you think the creator of McDonald's would be so proud that something as simple as a yellow 'M', all over the world, makes people immediately think of McDonald's? That's amazing marketing. Not necessarily super creative, but it worked at an amazing level. A yellow 'M', in just about any context, makes you think of one thing and one thing only. Green Day, The Beatles, Nickelback..these bands are the same thing. You may not like it (I don't care for it myself) but you cannot deny that if your a musician, and you want to play music for a living, these guys did it at the highest level and made a killing doing it!

How can anyone think this is a good article? Wow there must be a lot of uneducated morons on here if you think this is a good article. It's barely even readable! I can barely follow your train of thought and most of every word you wrote is just your hate ridden opinion. I actually do agree with most of what you were trying to say, but found the writing to be immature and poorly executed. I think some your a opinions are a little off, and I would be surprised if you yourself knew anything about writing or composing music. I am a musician, and take my word for it, composing is not easy. And though I DO agree with most of the bad music you mentioned, some of these artists are innovators and deserve respect for that. Green Day is an amazing band (and I don't personally care for them but..) they created a sound that is so amazingly simple. Yeah, they ripped from other punk acts from the 80's, who doesn't rip from their predecessors? But they now have a sound that is uniquely their own.
This article had a score of a 4 just a couple of days ago. What in the world happened? Oh right, more people who can't take opinions seriously. I thought this was a pretty good article. Too bad the best I can do is boost it up once
Everyone has their own opinions about music. Ranting about yours doesn't do anyone any favors. You could have written something thought-provoking, but instead, it's just a highly opinionated piece of junk that leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth. So, yes, my critique is on how crappy this article is rather than your musical opinions. That's how it should be anyway. Thumbs down.
AC/DC!!!! For Real! SMH. AC/DC on same list as Kanye, Milli Vanilli and Bolton is insane.
your list is fine but please do not shit on AC/DC, they are one of my favorite bands of all time.
You forgot RUSH, Elvis, Niki Minaj, Deadmaus, ICP, and Robin Thicke.
As much as I can't stand the tween bands I have to play the Devil's advocate and ask are they really that bad or is it just that I'm getting older and no longer understand the music that the kids of today are into? I certainly remember the older generations not understanding the music I was into when I was in middle school.
80'a Bon Jovi I like, same with Michael Jackson. Nice list!
Surprisingly I agree with all but one on this list. Though I completely understand why he's on the list, I have to admit that Michael Bolton is a guilty pleasure of mine. I've always loathed Nickelback. Not just b/c of their songs, but b/c they seem to be frauds. One song they're talking about how much they miss some chick, then they're choking her (or another chick) in the next. Are you bad asses or softies? I don't know if I'd add the Beatles to this list, but they're definitely overrated. I would, however, add Bruce Springsteen. He's a horrible singer and most of his songs are depressing. In fact, the only thing good about his music was Clarence Clemons. And any singer that talks about politics at his/her/their concert should be kicked off the stage.
Some parts of this list I agree some I don't agree with while others have gone to guilty pleasure/ 90's cheese for me. However good article though this could use more of something.... Oh yea It needs more Cowbell (Invalid youtube)

You forgot that no talent piece of crap known as Lil Wayne, also the disrespectful group of bastards called One Direction. AC/DC does have some good stuff, but I can see why you added them. I like some Bon Jovi and Green Day was great in the 90s, now they're just pure crap.
One Dimensional and Justine Beaver were on this list as they are Tween which counts for the entire wave of crap music. In fact the Beaver is under both 2 & 1 as he does Tween with an auto tune flaver at the same time. One Direction are nicknamed One Dimention because they are One Dimensional.

Gotcha, I'm glad they're included in that whole crap genre. I also forgot to mention Pitbull who I hate with a passion. Drake and Jay-Z too.
