These types of lists are just made to generate pub discussions guys. NME comes up with this stuff every month or so, accompanied by a headline that screams: 25 WORST.... AS CHOSEN BY: ...


We shouldn't even dignify such things with a topic on a forum :P

It seems to me like the writer's advice on sucess boils down to: If you are in a successful band, don't form another band (it will never be as good as the first band). If you stay in the same band, don't keep producing albums (boring). This writer has discovered the secret of goneness, err, I mean greatness.

most of the god awful bands listed are god awful. they made alot of money they didn't quite earn but then so did wall street. so more power to them and the (god bless their hearts) deformed ears that respond to their music. wall street fucked us over real good. but these musicians just gave us the simple option of switching the dial. that said i think lists are fun. they are so much so what? -fun. play along or switch the dial. so burn down wall street and then the peas and rush. save hootie for me, i want them to suffer before i switch the dial.

sadly the musicians didnt give us anything but an ear ache ... it was those confounded repeater stations and lazy ass same song each 2 hours for dj payola features that ground pop sensibility into mush ... but yes... Wall Street fucked us and did it right on our own table of law before everyone who was already disgusted with our blind and ignorant arrogance

Hmmm...

I own plenty by Dave Matthews, and not a single thing by Animal Collective... And I spent plenty of time extremely high and having sex [with girls who do (and do not) like Dave Matthews, and they weren't bad at it either (not bad at sex, not not bad at liking dave matthews)]... YMMV...

Well, I don't buy that so-called manufactured bands are automatically bad. The Monkees, 1910 Fruitgum Company, etc, they put out some nifty stuff.

hell yeah, ohio express, too

of course The Monkees were good, they were basically a front band for Neil Diamond's music

ahhh, no, he wrote some outstanding tunes for them, but they were fronting boyce and hart more than anyone when they were fronting. and don kirshner's stable.

Wow what an absolutely massive troll.

On Fleet Foxes:

"Of course, white people aren't like most listeners, and will tolerate almost anything they're told is good for them; hence the group's popularity."

Go fuck yourself, Ben Westhoff (the author).

LCD Soundsystem? Come on.

here hear! i play bach and the fleet foxes on first snow- fits perfect with the fire and hot chocolate and naked women. i have no use for dave mathews band. not saying they suck but i just i never get past the first few bars. we don't have to defend our music we just need to listen to it and support the musicians we love. that's all. screw the haters, me included.

Do any of those bands even exist? I mean seriously. Who calls a band Animal Collective? What does that even mean?
I think this is just an excuse to diss some awesome bands *cough* Raconteurs *cough*. I have nothing against speaking your mind but you have to be realistic.

What bands does this person actually listen to?

Edit:
I just looked at his list of greatest musicians of all time. Apparently some strange looking Asian guy call William Hung is the greatest.
Now I'm confused.

it's the LA Weekly... what a total rag. They used to have some decent writers but they all jumped ship years ago.

Now all it's good for is where to find weed and hookers. In other words, pretty useless.

Somebody should do a list of Worst Music Critics. Or a "Worst Lists" list.

I'm assuming the article is meant as a troll. A 20 worst bands list without Nickelback and Limp Bizkit? Obviously a fake.


Winner, Winner....Nickelback is tuuuuuurrrible. The racs only made that list because that "critic" or whatever bought the record and heard the lyric and thought they found a nifty line. Bored to tears, I'm bored to tears listening to it, give me a break I don't know why I read the rest of it. Got to say though the eagles, hootie, and pearl jam spot on.
