Default 20 Worst Bands of All Time

I'm only 23, and even I know that this list is a load of crap.

http://blogs.laweekly.com/westcoasts...plete_list.php

This is said about the Dave Matthews Band:

Quote:
You want a real American Horror story? Sit in the back of an SUV with off-key sorority house members singing along to Dave Matthews Band. "Dave" is a jam act with no jams. They make Perrier seem vibrant and ethnic. Dave Matthews croons like Kermit with a hangover, for a presumed intended audience of trustafarians and frat bros bonding via hacky sack and horseshoes. Them, and folks whose favorite book is The Da Vinci Code and favorite TV show is Two and a Half Men. They are permanently beige, the sonic instantiation of Ambercrombie & Fitch cargo shorts, South Carolina Gamecocks hats, and flip-flops flailing. -Jeff Weiss
Anyone know the story behind this? I've never heard of them being Gamecock fans.

Their fans I believe. I wonder if he is referring to the douches who wear the COCKS hat just because it says COCKS?

Don't want to sift through another lame slideshow? Here you go:

19. The Raconteurs
18. Oasis
17. Phish
16. 4 Non Blondes
15. Pretty Ricky
14. Foreigner

I mean, I put their top 2 at the top of my "most overrated bands" list every time the subject comes up, so that was pretty funny to see.

Pearl Jam? I vehemently disagree with that!


Agree with Acockolypse Now, Nickelback and Creed have to be on that list or it has no merit. Screw them, that list was probably made by people who like Kesha.

That's the great thing about music, everyone has different tastes. I'm no fan of Phish it's just not my kind of music but for what it is they are pretty good. The writers sound like they were in a band in the late 80's or early 90's and saw a lot of these groups become popular and are butthurt it wasn't them. Also other than the Chili Peppers I don't think any of them are California bands so they may be pandering to the west coast crowd.

A lot of these bands remind me of this video.

Default Re: 20 Worst Bands of All Time

why is starship not in the list? Because they are too old. That list is all 90s bands. Dude must be young who wrote it.

I Think the reference to Gamecocks was that the "Cock" hat was popular back in the 90s. I can attest. I was in Maryland and although I did end up going to SC, even before I chose to look at the school, those hats were popular up my way

the writer is the same douche that said MyMorningJacket was the best live band. he was talking about now but put he thought they were better than stones, zeppelin, and others
Quote:
If song really is one of the few conduits of human contact with a higher power, the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco is a Sistine Chapel, with its lobby strewn with framed photos of nearly every act to headline a “Bill Graham Presents” show. You name it and it’s there: Led Zep. Floyd. The Dead. Neil Young & Crazy Horse. The Who. The Rolling Stones. The entirety of our Old Testament in a wall-to-wall display of canonized saints that conventional baby-boomer wisdom submits as unimpeachable evidence that things really were better back in their day. But I don’t buy it.

4 Non Blondes were from San Francisco.

RHCP, Black Eyed Peas, and the Eagles originated in LA. Not certain, and it wouldn't surprise me either, but I think the Pussycat Dolls are also from LA.

Some people have a hard time distinguishing between not liking a band and them being terrible.
