Q Magazine's 25 Most Pathetic Musicians

I'm not one for negativity, of course, but well, get stuck in!

(And no I don't agree with the list at all but it's fun. Yeah? Except for the notable exclusions of Matty Bellamy and someone else I wanted to slag off but now I can't remember who. Ah well. Of those I know on the list the only one I'd really disagree with is Nick Cave. I can see why the rest are annoying to some degree, although I do like some of them.)

25. Brandon Flowers
24. Roger Daltrey
23. Lars Ulrich
22. Kasabian
21. Bryan Ferry
20. Beck
19. Andrew Fletcher
18. Angus Young
17. Mike Mills
16. Nick Cave
15. Danny McNamara
14. Mick Mars
13. Dave Rowntree
12. Moby
11. The one, the only, Mr. Nicholas Wire!!!!!
10. Britney Spears
9. Linkin Park
8. Ronan Keating
7. Chris Martin
6. Morrissey
5. Paul Heaton
4. Brian May
3. Dido
2. Sir Ciff Richard

*drum roll*

1. Lou Reed

Brian May? As in legend from Queen? That deserves a "WTF?" on its own, but putting him ahead of Britney Spears requires a double "WTF?"

He had crap hair.

And my opinion on Queen involves the words "dull", "shite" and "70s", but nevermind.

What experience, pray tell?

Is he on the list for being "the first goth with a comb-over?"

I swear this list is being made on hair. That's why Mike Mills is on it.

I vaguely know his work being on the fringes of many artist groups I'm into... but I'm not that into it. At the start of the year he played at a big stadium festival gig to 60,000 people or so... mainly teeny-boppers. The reaction was pretty damn disrecptful... but his performance left a lot to be desired even by his standards. :S

I heard him described many times as "dazed" "stoned" or "drunk".

Also I have to say I find it pretty hillarious how much this contradicts many of the Q Awards that have been dished out over the years, especially the early 90's.

I would have thrown the lead singer of The Darkness in there, and all of Nickelback.

I see that Mr. Jumpy himself is there at number 7, so this list has some merit!

Some people would just be favored by silence and they don't know it yet...

Q is so stereotypically melodramatic British music pub. They fellate the stars on the list to get them on the cover of the magazine, then call them pathetic a month later.

I can't believe Beck is on that list.

Nearly perfect! Linkin Park = dreadful awful crap. Can't wait till their little day in the sun ends.

They could left Mike Mills alone though
