1. Nickelback. They use the same 4 or 5 chords in every damn song they write. They have literally made money off of essentially the same song from day one. I don't think they have any talent, and I hope they break up soon. 2. Green Day. They have put out like 7 or 8 cd's with the same songs on every one. Their newest cd does nothing but bash America itself, and any citizens who did not vote for John Kerry. How can a song called "American Idiot" that criticizes basically the entire population of our country become so popular? Easy. America truly is full of idiots. Idiots who listen to Green Day. 3. System of a Down. They are creative as hell, and I love the MUSIC behind their sound- but I absolutely cannot stand the singing. If you call it that. They need to get a new singer, and they need to stop writing lyrics like "Pull the tapeworm out of your ***" X 100. 4. Nirvana. Nirvana absolutely destroyed music. The hair-bands of the late 1980's were getting washed up, and the music scene was hurting for a breakthrough- but Nirvana over-simplified music in general and sissified rock. Killing himself was probably the most creative thing Kurt Cobain ever did. I respect his success, and I applaud his lyric-writing talent, but person to person, he was just a whiner who couldn't handle the realities of success. He's no hero, he's just a bum who WANTED to be miserable. And now he's dead. 5. Oasis. They had ONE good cd. A decade ago. Why are they still around? 6. Jet. 1970's-era rock passed for a reason. Cheesy lyrics and ultra-easy/in-no-way creative music only add to their misery. 7. The White Stripes. For a two-piece band, they sound really good- but I just can't get over the fact that all their songs sound so much alike, and that they are so famous with so little material. 8. Probot. Dave Grohl is probably my favorite songwriter/musician around- but I bought that Probot cd and damn near threw it out the window on the way home. It's collecting dust in my collection as I type this. 9. Marilyn Manson. I bought "Antichrist Superstar" and actually DID throw that piece of crap out my window on the highway. I've never been so pissed over $12.49 in my life. Manson has roughly one (1) decent song per cd. 10. Lamb of God. No vocal talent whatsoever, and the repetitive guitar riffs... the ones they use in EVERY SINGLE SONG are amazingly boring to see in concert. All their singer does is walk around smoking a cigarette and drinking a beer while making dog noises. They opened for Slipknot a couple months back, and they sucked. Shadows Fall and Slipknot F-ing rocked though! I'm definetly going to see both of those bands again. 11. The Vines, The Hives and any other 1960's-1982 cover-band out there. That's not rock, that's CLASSIC ROCK, or "Oldies" for guys like me. Go away. Leave more room in the market for NEW bands with NEW ideas about NEW MUSIC and NEW playing styles. Opinions? Additions? Subtractions? Anyone?
