    Who doesn't love a meaningless list? NOBODY, that's who.

    Because nobody likes to click "Next" 15 times, I've made the actual list.

    20. Spin Doctors
    19. The Raconteurs
    18. Oasis
    17. Phish
    16. 4 Non Blondes
    15. Pretty Ricky
    14. Foreigner
    13. Wings
    12. Fleet Foxes
    11. Red Hot Chili Peppers
    10. Pussycat Dolls
    9. Rush
    8. Hootie & The Blowfish
    7. Pearl Jam
    6. Black Eyed Peas
    5. Animal Collective
    4. Sex Pistols
    3. LCD Soundsystem
    2. Eagles
    1. Dave Matthews Band

    I have to question the fact that 4 Non-Blondes is on any list, as if anyone knows who they are.

    4 Non Blondes should be #2.

    Not a big Pearl Jam fan but they don't belong anywhere on the list.

    Rush? Fuck yourself.

    No idea what Fleet Foxes is.

    I thought Pussycat Dolls was like a burlesque show in Vegas, they're a band now?

    i always hate Worst Bands Ever list's because they usually have bands that don't deserve to be on the list.

    It either started as a band or started as the burlesque show. They sing about being hot and slutty. Nicole Schezinger is so so so hot.

    No Creed? No Nickleback? Oh, I get it, this is like the LA Hipster list of shitty bands.

    And what crazy ass list has LCD Soundsystem, the Eagles, the Sex Pistols, Black Eyed Peas, and the Pussycat Dolls all together. I'm sorry, I hate Dave Matthews but if forced to listen to a CD or go to a concert, I'd choose them over BEP or PCD.

    And I don't care who you are... Hootie and the Blowfish sold 16 million copies of their first album. Popular yes, but hell, they were good.

    When I hear this song on the radio, I'll still listen to it.

    I can't disagree. The singles off that album were catchy as hell.

    The Eagles Greatest Hits is the second best selling album in the history of the world.

    Now I know you dip shits that think you are music aficionados will say "pop music is garbage". Well guess what dip shits, the reason pop music is called pop music? It is popular. When I was a 20 something hipster before they even had hipsters, I said the same thing. Now that I am pushing 50, I understand.

    I agree, Hootie and the Blowfish and Pearl Jam do not belong on that list. I'm not a fan but the Eagles probably doesn't belong on there either. There are probably dozens of bands worse than them.

    Is there some type of qualification, like the shittiest bands that have sold over 10 million records?

    Listen, I do not like cunty music in the least. But I can not argue that Garth Brooks and Shania Twain sold over 20 million albums. And that is not for there careers, that is one fucking record.

    The Eagles sold 29,000,000 of one record. It is not "your opinion man", it pretty much is the worlds.

    But you can keep buying those indie records you hear on that college radio station MAAAAAAN.....

    They are fun to spark debates, but this one is just so stoopid, it's off the charts.

    I'm convinced that at least 25% of the Eagles hate is solely based on Big Lebowski.
    If he would have used another band, say The Police, they'd be on more lists as being lame or sucking.

    I cannot however get on board the "Hootie wasn't that bad" train. Hootie = Shit

    I do hate Rush, but not because I'm a hipster or it's cool, I just hate them.
    But I also hate Fleet Foxes and don't mind The Eagles.

    Sex Pistols, LCD, Animal Collective shouldn't be on the list based on the fact that they're not "Worst"
    And most of the rest shouldn't be on there because nobody gives a fart about them.

    I do like DMB at #1 :icon_cool

    I had to respond to your posts. I haven't even read the list yet so my argument comes from a purely philosophical place rather than a place of disagreement over the specifics of the list.

    Just because something is popular doesn't mean it's good. Every now and then, the hipsters are right: The mainstream really doesn't get it. Popularity can often be linked to strong marketing rather than good quality.

    1. That's extremely dismissive of other people's opinions and delusionally supportive of your own.

    2. 29,000,000 people is not the world. How many people didn't buy it? How many Eagles fans thought it was their worst album ever? How many people watched Mind of Mencia at it's peak?

    3. Even if that was the world's opinion, it's still an opinion. You're basically arguing that people shouldn't have negative opinions of something if millions of other people think it's great.

    Of all the bands I've heard on that list, the Black Eyed Peas are the only ones who deserve to be on it (and this is coming from someone who dislikes a lot of those bands). They should be #1.

    Wow, now I get it. The Eagles where some marketing group. Like The Backstreet Boys. Here I was thinking it was world class song writing (by the guys in the band, not some record company hired gun) and amazing harmony's. Thanks guys, I now see it clearly. The Eagles are indeed the second worst band in history. The guy (whoever the fuck he is) who wrote this and you are correct. My bad.

    Did you watch the 4 Non Blondes video? It's one of the worst things that has ever been. It fills me with rage.
