Ya I don't know where they came up with The Doors and Primus, but those are the only 2 I like on there. I guess I kinda agree with the rest, but I'm sure there are still much worse hehe.

Is this a joke? What on Earth is their criteria? Reads more like "50 Famous Artists I Don't Like"

Well, it's an interesting list at least. I'm pretty happy with ICP being number 1. And I've never been on the Doors bandwagon so I'm okay with that one too.

I'm not considering they gave their last album 3 CD's or whatever, which means good for the genre. That last album, by the way, was what they called their "worst" album. So technically, according to Blender, all other ICP albums are equal or above 3 stars. Yeah, makes sense that they are the number one worst band of all time. Makes perfect sense...

Blender should be #1 on the list of 50 worse magazines.

What a stupid list. What was the criteria for this list anyway? Was it a pole of the general public or some idiot writers point of view?

For the most part the list doesn't bother me but adding the Doors in just seems like a way for the writer just to "be differant" which in some peoples eyes will make him cooler.

This is obviously a mistake. The Hooters changed the face of rock and roll forever.

Exsqueeze me? Baking powder?

And we danced like the waves of the ocean romanced . Yeah, it's safe to say they suck.

While I don't agree with their statements about The Spin Doctors and The Doors, at least they had the courage to say that the Goo Goo Dolls suck.

I thought the Doors were out of place, but for the most part, that's one of the better lists out there.

That's because the list is almost completely comprised of one hit wonders who stayed around too long and people who had more fans than talent to begin with.

As of others have questioned, THE DOORS? Chrimes without the Doors, where would the 90's be? Where would experimentation, atmosphere, the ability to think "higher" about music (though they were all a pretentious bunch ) Live? Okay, I like Live. But the rest? Yes....hhaha...Primus, finally someone agrees. Good list.

I've always liked Japan quite a bit, but other than that I have little quarrel with the list. I didn't see Boston on the list, and they'd be in my top 5 worst along with Journey, Styx, and REO Speedwagon.

I'm certainly glad to see somebody else recognizes the total and complete suckage that is The Doors. I have always hated that band.

Critics hate prog, so I see why ELP and Kansas are on there. But Skinny Puppy? Arrested Development? Whoever wrote this knows jack about Industrial and Hip Hop if these are the worst of their genres.

Maybe they actually meant Hootie and the Blowfish, who are conspicuously absent from the list. Hmmmm. . .

And, The Doors are the only act on that list that I have any albums of, so that's. . . good, I guess. . .
