    If you want to give a little synopsis of why , go for it.. Mine are

    1: Guns n Roses. Music wasn't bad until axle started singing. He sounds like somebody is strangling a cat.
    2: Metallica. Never liked them and then they went and played with an orchestra. Do you headbang to a orchestra?
    3: The Beatles ... They're just horrible.
    4: Aerosmith . See above.
    5: The Eurythmics, or anything Annie Lenox. Changing the radio station every time I hear her voice.

    Honorable mention : KISS. They were horrible but at least they didn't pretend to be in it for anything other than money.

    Green Day
    The Dave Clark Five (maybe the worst ever)

    Disagree on Annie Lenox though. She’s a bit avant-garde but really talented IMHO. Maybe an acquired taste.

    Led Zeppelin-bombastic "blues" rip offs
    Nirvana - they were loud- and bad
    The Dead (and Phish, too) who needs unending jams that go nowhere?
    The WHO
    The Beach Boys- one album would have done it, boys
    The Beatles- the studio is not where it's at, fellas- do it live or don't do it at all

    yeah, that's more than five, sue me

    oh- and ALL of the hair bands

    I feel this thread is the equivalent of musical festivus where we air our musical grievances.

    Great offseason thread

    The Grateful Dead - Jerry Garcia’s endless (and pointless) noodling makes me want to kill hippies

    Rascal Flatts - the fact that these megadouches are from Columbus is icing on the cake

    Foghat

    Styx

    Warrant

    Jethro Tull -- One song and I'm good for a decade or two.
    Moody Blues -- the Xanax of the 70's and 80's
    Prince -- I tried. I just don't get it.
    Foreigner -- I did a catering event for them long ago. They had a food fight.
    All those annoying Boy Bands

    Most of the bands listed here are in the rock and roll hall of fame....

    So basically, you guys like Nickelback over the Beatles?

    If anything they do comes on the radio, my fingers cant get to the button fast enough.

    As a fan of punk and heavy metal, i know most of mine are probably less popular in general, but the ones that standout for me:

    The Clash
    Green Day (after Insomniac)
    Korn
    Ozzy solo (Black Sabbath should've erased their entire Ozzy-sung catalog and re-recorded it with Dio)
    Bad Brains

    Bon Jovi. When the 80’s ended, I foolishly thought I wouldn’t hear much from them anymore.
    Green Day. Obnoxious punk retreads. Take off, eh ?
    John Mayer. Looks narcoleptic. Maybe his affected singing style ruined his voice.
    Smashing Pumpkins. Billy Corgan has the most annoying voice in music. Audio equivalent of erasing a chalkbord with a cheese grater.
    Pink Floyd. I expect villification for this. Hated The Wall. Mopey, complaining, self pitying tripe.

    I’m going to echo what a few of you said. Bon Jovi, Prince, and ABBA are certainly up there. Rush and STYX also suck. And Jimmy Buffett sucks balls.

    No offense, but isn’t the whole point of being in a band is to play and play well? If it is, then EVH certainly hits that mark. I’m not expecting to discuss War and Peace with him, so I really don’t care how deep he is. I just want to hear him play his guitar better than anyone else on the planet, which he does most of the time.

    My current five best in no particular order :
    Steely Dan. Nobody will ever be able to make music like this again.
    Warren Zevon. Genius.
    Graham Parker ( with and without the Rumour ). People might know him from This is Forty.
    The Band. Check out their live performance with Van Morrison of Caravan. This is what rock should be.
    Dwight Yoakum.

    1. The Police and Sting (2 for1)
    2. U2 - No Boner here
    3. Journey - to the center of the Earth and remain there.
    4. Foreigner - maybe Pink Floyd can build a wall to keep this group out.
    5. Pink Floyd.

    For a brief period of time, they were a huge band.

    How about Def Leopard as well.
