#20 Tenacious D
The movie wasn't actually THAT funny, and the soundtrack is a bit short. Plus it's comedy music, it gets boring pretty quick.
#19 System of a Down
I don't even consider myself a fan of them, how did they make it here? Which doesn't mean they're bad, but they're here probably only because I got Hypnotize and Mesmerize just as long as I have last.fm and listen to them every once in a long while. And I recently tried out their debut. "Sugar" is the ultimate madness, and so are some songs of their latest two albums, but apart from that it's not that spectacular.
#18 The Who
I only have a Best-Of CD which, according to the data, I statistically listen to like once a month or maybe every 2 months. And I like to blame them for the 70s. Just listen to the last songs on the Best-Of.
#17 The Velvet Underground
The banana - album is the only one I have, so again I don't care about them too much, therefor I am not nursing any grudge.
#16 Joy Division
Very much the same as for #17 and #18 combined. I own "Substance", but the only good songs are those which go away from punk but still have a punky feel to them.
#15 Red Sparowes
"Every Red Heart shines towards the Red Sun" has a far too long title, the songtitles are far too long and the album is quite a letdown compared to their debut.
#14 Good Clean Fun
Again: "Between Christian Rock and a Hard Place" is great and witty, yet the only CD I have. I usually tend to think that this is enough, maybe I will learn to hate them when I listen to more of their stuff.
#13 Dimmu Borgir
I once HAD lots of their albums, a friend gave them to me, but I quickly got rid of them as it turned out that only "Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia" had a pointless title... eeeeh no, they do that quite often. But it's the only album I can stand, their old stuff is just too grim and trve for me, as I am not frostbitten enough. I mean, hey, I am wearing a yellow T-Shirt right now?!
"El cielo" is great. Then, when last.fm made it possible to listen to full songs, I took a look at "Catch without arms". I did so ONCE, and never again. Someone called it "mindless pop music". I second that and don't even find it odd that people seem to enjoy it. "Leitmotif" isn't bad, but nowhere near as good as "El Cielo".
#11 Die Ärzte
German consense - band. Not that they don't deserve it, but they just can't seem to make proper albums. There are like 3-4 good songs and loads of fillers, which is why I have a huge mp3 - collection, but only one CD.
"Eurosis" sucks ass. And they have a nice subliminal way to make their music entertainig: If you listen closely you often hear people making a party, shouting, whistling and so on. Oh, and "Que corra la voz" wasn't that great either.
Slowly getting interesting. Probably the only reason why I like them is because I was just old enough to enjoy their stuff when they became big. And somehow they survived. So, I can totally see why people hate them, and sometimes, when I pay to attention to some of the lyrics, I tend to think so too. But "Enema of the State" and their last album are really entertainig. Plus: Everyone says they can't really play their instruments, which may or not be true, but their songs are just to the point, I really like their songwriting.
#8 Nikola Sarcevic
"Roll Roll and Flee" was a joke. Some good ideas, but as a whole that album is sooo boring. But apart from that there's not too much to hate about him.
Their fans suck. They really do. And so did 10'000 Days. "Lateralus" doesn't solve the world's problems either, still everyone keeps claiming that. That being said, Ænima is HUGE. Even more so when you're German and laugh your ass off everytime you hear "Die Eier von Satan".
Brrrr... Antics was SO indie, I just couldn't stand that boredom. And when I heard the single, I stopped caring about their latest album. But why, one might ask, are they on rank 6 then? Well, that's because the post-punk - songs on their debut are so incredibly good, it's incredible.
#5 Sigur Rós
You shouldn't get me started on this band, or their fans. Every studio album after AgBy sucks. ( ) is just like the space between ( and ): empty. Nothing happens on this album. Except for Untitled VIII. "Takk..." is about as deep as something that is not very deep. You can listen to their first two records as a whole, but you'll find that there are some qualitiy songs and enough pointless elevator music. So actually they suck except for some songs.
They stopped being awesome after "Pennybridge Pioneers". And they stopped being good after "Kingwood". They don't play their ska-songs live anymore. Although this doesn't sound like too much of negative things, it actually is enough.
Their pre-"Hoss" work is boring. And I'd have to drive REALLY far to seem them live on their upcoming tour. The only bad thing about them would have to be that one just can't listen to every project Joey Cape is involved in, because there are too many of them, therefor I don't even try. Well, sometimes their new drummer seems to be hitting random time signatures that have nothing to do with the song, but that may be just my fucked-up ear or understanding of music. Oh, and one of their guitar players is a wookie, but that's totally okay to me.
I once calculated that about 65% of my plays are "1977". That says it all. Their genre-hopping just pisses me off. "Free all Angels" isn't too bad, but quite often the amount of sugar-sweetness is just too much. "Meltdown" wants to be hardrock, but isn't. "Twilight of Innocents" wants to be an album, but is a joke. And the drummer can try as he might, he will always look like a pedophile weirdo or something.
If I was their guitarist, I would start smoking weed as well. Otherwise a concert would be way too boring. Seriously, compared to some of the Deftones' guitar work the Ramones are a student art-rock - band. And most of the guys in the band grew really fat over the years. "Around the Fur" and the selftitled weren't that good compared to the rest, but in general terms that doesn't mean anything at all.
