Platy's 40 Worst Albums of 2020

While everyone is putting together their 'best of' lists, I thought I'd start with the biggest stinkers instead. Every album here got at least a 2.5 or under. I'm looking forward to all the arguments from people who put these in their 'best of' lists! (Though I'd like to think the top 10 are pretty indisputable.)
Angel Miners and the Lightning Riders

Not only is this guy washed up, but there was hardly a memorable song on here.
39The Bunny The Bear

This sound is about 10 years too late. I wasn't good then, and it isn't good now.
A Wonderful Life

Forgotten industrial metal group puts out an extremely forgettable album.
5 Years Behind

Props to this for having a good message, but the music ain't that good.
36The Naked and Famous

Once one of the most promising bands in the electronic/indie scene has become a hollow version of its old self.
Music to Be Murdered By

Just hang em up Marshall, this isn't good.
34Villain of the Story

I'd be surprised if I hear from this band again.

Yet again, Halsey puts out a mediocre pop album. How long is it until she complains again about not being considered an "alternative artist?"
Use Me

Huge step down for PVRIS. Most of the songs that weren't from their EP a year ago are some of their worst.

Just because something is unique, doesn't mean it's good. So many songs blend together.
30Mike Shinoda
Dropped Frames, Vol. 1

Really this could be any of the three volumes he made. This is just so boring to listen to all the way through.
29The Used

The Used proves again that their one of the most inconsistent pop-punk/post-hardcore bands out there.

I know power metal is cheesy, but does it have to be THIS cheesy?
Basic Glitches

Haha, get it? The album is called 'Basic Glitches?' And it sounds like basic bitches! Isn't that hilarious?!
26Neck Deep
All Distortions Are Intentional

Was the crappy production on this album intentional as well?
25Ocean Grove
Flip Phone Fantasy

I'm a staunch defender of nu metal in 2020, but this just feels pandering.
24Hollywood Undead
New Empire Vol. 2

I had hope for Hollywood Undead after Vol. 1, but this is just awful.
A Beautiful Place to Drown

The rise of butt rock!
22Powerman 5000
The Noble Rot

I kinda forgot Powerman 5000 existed before this, and now I kinda wish they stayed forgotten.
21The Word Alive

The rise of butt rock! [2]
20The Smashing Pumpkins

Billy Corgan is one of the most pretentious people in the music industry, and this mess of an album proves it.
19Our Last Night
Let Light Overcome The Darkness

Cheesy name, cheesy lyrics, and boring music. Doesn't that sound like a good time?
18Beach Slang
The Deadbeat Bang Of Heartbreak City

I like rock music as much as the next guy, but this is as formulaic as it gets.
17Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez made better music when she was with Disney, change my mind.
Lonely Generation

This album loses pretty much all enjoyment about 2 songs in. These siblings really don't know how to write pop music.
Do You Feel O.K.?

I hadn't heard of this band before this album, and now I don't want to hear anymore.
14Asking Alexandria
Like a House on Fire

The rise of butt rock! [3]
High Road

What happened to Kesha being all mature and reinvented? The song where she features herself (but with a $ in her name) has to be one of the biggest musical lowpoints of 2020.
12The 1975
Notes on a Conditional Form

This rivals Cyr as the most pretentious album of 2020.
Shadow Work

These guys really need to just hang it up. I can't think of a single memorable song off this record.
10Machine Gun Kelly
Tickets to My Downfall

This album is about as edgy as a nerf gun. I know they say not to judge an album by its cover, but this is one of the exceptions.
9Ellie Goulding
Brightest Blue

The first half is mostly downtempo, forgettable pop songs. And the second half is just awful. 'Hate Me' is one of the worst songs from this year.
8Corey Taylor

The rise of butt rock! [4]
7Justin Bieber

Did anything really change? This album isn't higher purely because my expectations for a Justin Bieber album is 2020 were so low to begin with.

Turns out, ending every song with a horrible guitar chug makes for a bad experience. I've been told that this is what Emmure typically sounds like, almost like that makes it okay.
5Green Day
Father of All Motherfuckers

God dammit Green Day. I've been such a dedicated defender of your music in the 2000's, and this makes me want to give up.
4Grant MacDonald
Superhot Harry

Maybe I just don't get the joke. Putting vulgar porn scatting over generic metal just isn't funny, unless you're in middle school.

So glad this POS got out of prison early so he could bless us with this garbage.
Torch The Faith

Admittedly, the only album on here I couldn't even finish. It's that bad.
Lil Kiiwi

And the biggest stinker of em all! This album is seriously awful. Every hook is annoying, and Kiiara herself is an atrocious singer. Also, think of every cliche that modern pop music can have, and I can guarantee this album has it. There's honestly not a single song I would even call decent.
