Worst Band in history ...

Post by Srrh on Tue Dec 15 2009, 15:34

We all know M$ is thw worst cheat in F1....
But who's the worst rock band ?

Word Magazine have tried to elect the worst band of all times...

http://www.wordmagazine.co.uk/content/as-promised-final-results-worst-band-all-time

Here's Word's full list, by the way.

1) Nickelback - 19.8%
2) Lighthouse Family - 14.3%
3) Toploader - 11.8%
4) Razorlight - 9.8%
5) Savage Garden - 8.4%
6) M People - 7.5%
7) Maroon 5 - 6.6%
Cool 4 Non Blondes - 5.5%
9) Snow Patrol - 5.2%
10) Spin Doctors - 3.6%
11=) Beautiful South - 2.0%
11=) Sleeper - 2.0%
13) New Radicals - 1.1%
14=) Lighting Seeds - 0.9%
14=) The Troggs - 0.9%
16)Crowded House - 0.5%

Nickelback truly desreves it me think.

But where are Sig Sig Spoutnik, Jonas Brother, Tokyo Hotel, Two Live Crew, Jamiroquai and others ....

Oh yeah, FYI, the beatles got two vote...

What does everybody have against Nickelback? For sure, they are far from the best, but worst band in history?

It's probably the same people that voted that who would vote Led Zep as the greatest rock band in history.

Anyway, I like Nickelback, but then again I like 3 Doors Down and they are Nascar fans.

Sig Sig Spoutnik...ROFL!

I always liked crowded house. Saw them live in London Ontario, and they put on a great show. Actually did an impromptu version of " Whole Lotta Love".

Nickelback can dangle from my sac.

I think "M people" did the theme for Star Trek: Enterprise...I know sing along with it. I may be gay.

Wow, I'm so lost...I haven't heard of 90% of these bands...LOL...

...what can I say though, I still live in the 80's when it comes to music.

I wanna be a Cowboy
Eye's of a Stranger (Payola's)
Anything by Duran-Duran, Def Leppard, Frankie Goe's To Hollywood, Kate Bush, Tommy Two Tone, Eddie Money, Joe Walsh, .38 Special, Lover Boy, Autograph, Soft Cell, Thompson Twins, Talk-Talk, Ah-ha...rofl, I could go on and on and on...

I'm sure everyone feels the same way about "their" generation of music...but I'd swear music stopped after the era of '75 to '85...the best decade of music!!! ;-) Great rock AND great new wave stuff.

OK, I'll shut-up now...move along, nothing to see here folks, move along...

Wasn't there a story also that Plastic Bertrand was not actually singing either? It was his producer that was singing for him.

The job I'm working at now only gets one radio station, "classic Rock WIZN "the wizard" from Burlington, VT.

Hard to imagine that there is so little "classic" rock that they have to play LOVERBOY everyday. And one of 3 Guns and roses songs, thouyght they had more. BOSTON- ARRRRRGGGGGHHYHHHH!!!!!! Everyday, more than once.

No Beatles, no Police or Talking heads, What did Morrisey sing? "Hang the D.J., hang the D.J."

I'm steering clear of this thread because I know my tastes run contrary to many...

Very hard to quantify a "Worst of all time" since that judgment is completely subjective. However, subjectively I'd have these towards the top of the list:

Rush
Styx
Kansas
Loverboy
Nelson
Poison
Whitesnake
Wilson Philips
Men Without Hats
Go West
Spice Girls
The Archies...

Oh, I'm drawing a blank right now but there is so much bad out there how do you determine worst?

But then again, I think this is awesome:

I can agree with most of those on the list eso, but Rush? Okay, it all went downhill as of the Exit Strage Left live album, but the stuff from before that was great! One of my all time favourite songs is La Villa Strangiato. Sure, you can say it is over-done, but hell they sure can play and there is at least a bit of work that has gone in to composing their songs. You can't say that for any band you hear on the radio today.

However, in general I would agree with RacerX. Late 70's to the mid 80's produced the music that I listen to for the most part.

Bugger...Kansas is high in my Top 10 of GREATEST bands - and Styx is well-high in my Top Fifty... Embarassed And Rush I respect, but don't get on too well with.

However, UB40's Red Red Whine is my #1 most-hated song - so into Room 101 they go...!

I'd say anybody signed by Simon Cowell goes into the worst category.
