Rolling Stone Magazine asked its readers a very simple question. They wanted to know who the worst bands of the 90's were. The readers knocked it out of the park when they named Creed in the top spot. But, I have some issues with a few others that made the list. Let's discuss...
Here are the top 10
1) Creed - Fitting. They're terrible. If you disagree, you're probably terrible
2) Nickelback - I'd pay money to see Creed and Nickelback fight to the death in a cage match.
3) Limp Bizkit - They deserve to be here. Fred Durst is annoying and they went off the deep end, but they started off with something new. I have to give them a little credit for that.
4) Hanson - I don't know about this one. MMMBOP is an overplayed and childish song, but have you heard their other stuff? These kids can really play some great music.
5) Nirvana - This choice makes this whole list absolutely irrelevant. Whether you like them or not, this band has no business being on this list. In fact, Nirvana should never be on the same list as Creed. The Rolling Stone readers are dumb. Fact.
6) Hootie and the Blowfish - Overplayed and a little cheesy. I can't make much of an argument here, but I don't think they'd be on my personal list.
7) Bush - This one's tough. I like them. They did kind of come in at a transition time and stations played the crap out of a couple of their songs. I wouldn't pick them but I guess I can see why others might.
8) Spin Doctors - Should they even count on this list? One-hit-wonders should be exempt. Fair choice, though.
9) Ace Of Base - As much as I loved "The Sign," you'll get no argument from me here.
10) Dave Matthews Band - Another stupid choice. I'm not a fan of DMB, but I don't think you could ever put them in a worst band list. They're super talented and have been playing for sold out crowds since the mid 90's. That's a pretty great run. Another bad choice from the Rolling Stone readers.
