18 Celebrities Who Released Music… And Mostly Failed

William Shatner

You can’t really blame them for trying. After reaching a certain point in celebdom and quite possibly getting some critical acclaim, these celebrities thought that it was the perfect time to rule over the music industry’s skies as well.

Maybe that was their plan all along, maybe they were convinced into doing it or maybe they just wanted to grab some more cash. Whatever the reason may be, their plans flopped just like their music. It proves that some people just can’t have it all.

1. William Shatner

William Shatner’s music has always been original, if nothing. The famous Captain Kirk released his debut album in 1968.

“The Transformed Man” is basically a mash-up of Shakespeare readings with music from The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and others.

Shatner’s musical odyssey has been the epicenter of jokes ever since it had seen the light of day, and even William himself tried to make it seem as a joke.

It didn’t work.

Since then, the actor jumped on the train and parodied himself on shows like “Family Guy” and “The Simpsons,” not to mention the viral video or him ironically covering “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Let’s be clear, “The Transformed Man” won’t make your ears bleed but it will put you in a laugh-induced coma – something Shatner didn’t do intentionally for that purpose.
