The Friday Top 5!!!!!!

OK, so last week's Friday Top 5!!!!!! went better than expected. Enough of you decided to humor me that we were actually able to compile The Top 5!!!!!! things we like about the republican party. Heck of a challenge to start with.

This week's Friday Top 5!!!!!! topic:

The five worst bands of all time are...

There's just too much crap being called music these days... and that's exactly what my parents told me as I sat in front of MTV watching RATT, Devo, Van Halen, and .38 special videos. MTV might of killed the radio star, but American Idol is pretty much destroying everything in its path... I digress.

Top 5, desert island lists are played... what are your 5 least favorite bands of all time? Let's see if you can do it without using Styx, Emerson Lake & Palmer, and ABBA.

(Sal, if you mention Steely Dan, you're off the blog)

Have a nice weekend.

A few things. I am dealing with bands. This takes out the NKOTB and other boybands of the world. I am going to just deal with real bands, so you know at.

In no order:

1) Kingdom Come. Don't believe me? Check it:

2) Color Me Badd. So bad they had to add an extra "d".

3) Starship- like Jefferson Starship wasn't bad enough.

4) Any band that George W. Bush likes. If he likes them, they must suck ass.

5) Blackjack- Umm, Bolton was in the band. So was the guy that replaced Ace Frehley in Kiss. Perhaps you've heard the tune "Everybody's Crazy" at some point in your life. If you haven't, don't. Your lot in life shall not improve for it.

When my limited noggin thinks of bands, I think of groups of sweaty humans playing instruments on a grimy, unsafe stage with sparks flying out of bad wiring, so yes, the manufactured pop shit gets disqualified before we even start.

Beyond that, fuck, this is tough. It might be easier to name trends, though Starship was hideous.

I was surfing, as all good dudes do, through the music channels on my teevee the other and some fake, neo-punky/rocky thing, the kind of crap you'd hear in a promo to whatever hip young person show is on the WB or the OC or whatever the fuck it's called, a happy, bouncy fuckery of crap. I don't even remember the band's name, but there are about a billion of them and they all sound the same. Not as mindnumbingly dull as shit like Creed or Staind or 89th generation copies of AIC or Pearl Jam that saturated the airwaves in the late 90s, but vile in it's own shimmery, vomit-inducing way.

I don't think I answered your question.

Randal - i blame green day for introducing a barely post-glam audience to watered down emo-punk more likely to complain about a bad hair day and a credit card overage fee than tell somebody to fuck off. its a problem.
