The 15 most hated bands of the last 30 years
 
I don't agree with all of these.

I don't agree with a lot.

Most hated by the author? Sure.

Most hated by everyone? No.

A few classify as people just not caring about them anymore imo. That doesn't mean they're hated though.

OK lets see his list of what SHE thinks is the best. Good grief, who is Prachi Gupta? Her she is, one of Salon's greatest writers I guess.

I agree with a few.
Calling 98 degrees a band in the first place should be telling.
Nickleback, Smashmouth, Black Eyed Peas, Insane Clown Posse...fully agree.
Limp Bizkit, Lana Del Ray and Creed...def not a fan.

Hootie and the Blowfish..c'mon.
John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band...bands that play actual music.

And it is niche, but I am a fan of PHish.

My question...why not put Macklemore and Lewis, or FUN on this list...or just about any mainstream pop act out today (looking at you Miley Cyrus)...I guess to classify as a band to hate you actually have to play music.

No mention of the Eagles?

Other than Phish...who isn't really my cup of tea...I tend to agree with most of these. All bands have fans or no one would know about them and no one would 'hate' them for it but for me this is actually a pretty decent list. My list would be different but she's not way off base on most of these...IMHO

I'll punch someone if they put Fun. on the radio at a party. I sincerely hate that "band," and the pompous douchebag who sings in it. That "song" he "sang" with Pink should be played to end hostage situations.

Insane Clown Posse absolutely qualifies, though. And if you're a jugaloo, you're an idiot.

Agreed. The only one I didn't really "get" was Linkin Park in the dishonorable mentions. I've never heard anyone talk about hating them...or really talking about them at all, actually.

You sound like you might have anger issues.

Just sayin.

And no, I'm not a fan of the bands in your post.

I don't like Dave Matthews, but hard to believe he'd be on a list like that. But most of those bands do blow.

Did I miss a memo where we collectively decided that hyperbole on the internet isn't OK?

I'm actually ok with the list - pretty accurate in my opinion.

I've told you a million times not to use hyperbole on the internet :-x

"Prachi Gupta is an Assistant News Editor for Salon, focusing on pop culture. She was recently dumped by a guy that listened to all the bands above. Follow her on Twitter at @prachigu or email her at pgupta@salon.com"

I think they've edited it to remove the second sentence now...

I have to pretty much agree with the list.

1000% agree with the Pink/Fun duet. Like nails on a chalkboard.

May get flamed but I don't care.

Why isn't U2 on this list?

Don't take it personally. Misinterpreting people and being judgemental are kind of his thing.
