7 Bad Albums from Well-Regarded Musicians

Sometimes even best-selling and world-famous recording artists release a flop every once and a while. Here are 7 examples of bad albums from good musicians.

    1. “Make Believe” from Weezer. While “Make Believe” is Weezer’s best-selling record, it’s also one of their worst. It’s started a long decline in quality from the once rockin’ band out there.

    1. “Invincible” from Michael Jackson. The King of Pop’s last record before he died was an unfocused mess of platitudes. “Invincible” was MJ’s lowest rated album and least popular among fans.

    1. “Tre!” from Green Day. It’s Green Day’s 11th studio record and is also one of their most lackluster. It’s not so much as punk, as puke. It lacked the direction and edge of previous records.

    1. “Dirty Work” from The Rolling Stones. While fans bought the album when it was released in 1986, it marked a big decline in quality for The Rolling Stones. Critics panned its rough sounds, while Mick Jagger and Keith Richards started to drift apart while recording the record.

    1. “Lulu” from Metallica and Lou Reed. I’m still scratching my head over this one. Metallica and Lou Reed teamed up to deliver a strange spoken word record with hard heavy metal behind it. The record didn’t work as spoken word or heavy metal.

    1. “Self-Portrait” from Bob Dylan. The record was a collection of covers from Bob Dylan, as it dipped into various music genres. It was also a big dip in quality.

    1. “Songs of Innocence” from U2. This was the “free” album Apple and U2 teamed up on to give their record to all iTunes users. “Songs of Innocence” just showed up in your iTunes or iPhone and you were unable to delete it. It was a sad day for everyone.
