obviously meant to ruffle feathers

K I totally don't agree with putting the goo goo dolls up there. I think that they are a talented band and you really can't form an opinion of them based on their success. Creed is discounted for the same reason. But they can't be one of the worst bands ever with 10 consecutive 1's on the modern rock chart. I will give you that Scott Stapp has a huge ego and his solo stuff is blah but Mark Tremonti's guitar work is unmatched in modern rock groups.

Plus I still like Oingo Boingo.

Exactly.

How does Bon Jovi not make this list? They're like the most popular shitty band. I'm really surprised at the lack of cheese metal on there. No Warrant, Bulletboys, Skid Row, etc? Whitesnake is better than all those assholes, even if David Coverdale is a tool of the highest order.

Personally I'd put Motley Crue on there too as another band that gets way too much publicity and don't really offer anything original. And Vince Neil's voice sucks.

Can you really be considered a 'band' if you've only written ONE song in the last 20 years and you just keep changing the words to the tune and releasing it as a 'new' single....

Well, to be fair there are only so many slots on the list and there were an awful lot of horrible hair metal bands in the late 1980s. But I see your point about Whitesnake. Sure, they were completely unoriginal and Coverdale is a tool, but at least he could actually sing.

I disagree with:

Toad the Wet Sprocket
The Doors
Gipsy Kings (not a big fan, but I respect)
Blind Melon
Bob Geldof (once, not a big fan, but...)
Live (first two albums were great)
Arrested Development
Primus (not a fan at all, but I have to give respect to one of the best bassists)
I think I love you, BVS.

Nothing wrong with the Goo Goo Dolls either. Sweet sounding songs. I need into get some of their albums.


Also, can anyone gimme any advice on how to get into Toad the Wet Sprocket. I know nothing of theirs, yet have heard comparisons with Dishwalla and the legendary Gin Blossoms. What were their hits? What were the lyrics like and what other bands are they comparable with?
They only had one major commercial single here. I have it somewhere. It's name I cannot recall, but I can sing it to you!

...Or not.
