I'll name a few to start.
I don't think the new New Pornographers album is very good at all.
Also, I was so blown away by We Are Scientists and their first album. But their second album is just awful. They sound like they're trying to imitate Arcade Fire and doing a bad job of even that.
I'm a huge Matthew Good fan, but I think Hospital Music was a misjudgment.
"As much as I love Metallica and Mr. Cornell, I couldn't agree more (not too familiar with the Smashing Pumpkins though). Can't really think of anything else off the top of my head though. (Well, Sabbath made some stuff after Dio left (which itself wasn't as good as when Ozzy was there, but was still good), and that wasn't very good, but I don't remember the name).

Green Day- American Idiot
While the album isnt really all that bad i fucking cant stand when bands get big and then decide to shove their beliefs in peoples faces. If you werent a political band when you started dont try to be one when you get big, its fucking childish.
The sole reason this album was made was to help fund their next album(and possibly best) Stoner Witch. The album is just them goofing off in the studio.
Cabaret Voltaire - 'Groovy, Laid Back and Nasty'.
Yes, twenty years on, I still feel compelled to call them out on that one. The godfathers of Industrial do a House music album that sounded dated even when it first came out.
Ministry - 'Dark Side of the Spoon'
A Democrat in the White House = poor Ministry albums
Skinny Puppy - 'Mythmaker'
The album that makes you look back fondly on 'The Process'. At least it did have 'Politikil'.
" Red Hot Chilli Pepper - Stadium Acardium, Gave into self indulgence with a ridiculously long and boring album. "I gotta disagree with you there, stadium arcadium was good, not their best, but good. They easily could have cut the album down to 1 disk, because there was some crap on there. I just wasnt a fan of kiedes on the album, he spewed alot of nonsense. Now One Hot Minute, that is a piece of garbage.
" Encore and Relapse by Eminem are both pretty bad. Recovery is a step in the right direction, but there's still some work that needs to be done before he can stand up to what he used to be. "Took the words out of my mouth. It's kind of a post-Eminem world, and I think he's having a hard time figuring out what to do. He's done angry, he's done drug-addled, he's done poor, he's done the problems of fame and being rich, he's done fart jokes, and he's done serial-killer fantasies. What's left? Oh, now he's done pop-sounding uplifting songs. Better, but still can't compare to SSLP, MMLP, and the Eminem Show.
"Do TOOL count since those were their first two albums and they've just got better and better? I thought it was about bands that've gone downhill.
Tool's Undertow and Opiate are nothing compared to they pure genius of Aenima and Lateralus"
" Cabaret Voltaire - 'Groovy, Laid Back and Nasty'. Yes, twenty years on, I still feel compelled to call them out on that one.

Ministry - 'Dark Side of the Spoon' A Democrat in the White House = poor Ministry albums Skinny Puppy - 'Mythmaker' The album that makes you look back fondly on 'The Process'.

Do you know the story behind Che Fu and Supergroove? AKA why they turned shit...
" New Zealand's Supergroove released a mighty album in 1994's Traction, which was full of great funk stuff , and then they released Backspacer which is one of the dullest things to take up space in my CD drawers. "
AC/DC - Stiff Upper Lip
Silverchair - Diorama
Korn - maybe it's just me as they seemed to get MORE popular after "Follow the Leader" but that's when I stopped liking their stuff.
The Offspring - Americana (*shudder*)
Blink 182 - Take off your pants & Jacket
Our Lady Peace - anything that came after "Clumsy"
And I SORT OF agree about Metallica - St Anger, although watching the "Some Kind of Monster" documentary really brought me back on this one. It has a unique appeal that is different than any other of their albums. Anyone who likes Metallica should give it a watch.
