It seems like no matter how popular you get in your field, there's always going to be people who just don't like you for whatever reason. In the case of these 10 artists, they've made millions on their music, but also have millions of haters.
She's quite possibly the most iconic pop star of all time (or at the very least of the 80s), but someone with as... colorful a history as Madonna is pretty much guaranteed to attract a legion of haters.
From conservative groups who decried her provocative image, to people rolling their eyes at her numerous phases (like when she suddenly developed a British accent), there are probably just as many people who are over Madonna's whole schtick as there are who love it.
One of the most influential British rock bands of all time is also probably one of the most contentious. The hatred here pretty much all comes down to Sting's voice: you either seem to love it or you feel like he's screeching at the top of his lungs for what feels like hours on end.
They routinely sell out stadiums and have recorded some of the biggest-selling rock albums ever released. Their concerts are also basically political rallies, complete with Bono spending more time going on about his personal views (and massive ego) than actually singing.
It's not entirely surprising that they have just as many fans as they have decriers, but what do you think of 'em?
The modern pop-punk scene would basically be nothing without these guys, and they not only released some of the world's greatest slacker anthems ever on Dookie, but also absolutely exploded with a punk rage on 2005's American Idiot.
However, it's easy to notice after a while that a lot of their tunes just sound a lot like each other, and on top of that... a lot of them are pretty stupid when you break it down.
