List Rules Commercially pushed,lack of real talent. This is Not a personal opinion but algorithms from over 40 sites.

Multi-site collaboration of statistics. Artists and Bands where actual songwriting,musician and/or vocal talent does not fit the popular status. Artists/Bands pushed by Media and Music Corporations yet decieve the public in actual national talent status and should not of been promoted to red carpet status but should be playing coffee shops. Disliked in private more than liked in public.
