They can't even get their Skinny Puppy facts straight. Dwayne did sequencers, sampling, and keyboards. Nivek Ogre is the vocalist. And the one song that they sampled Timothy Leary got scrapped from Last Rights due to legal issues. They mostly sample horror and sci-fi movies.

I was pretty surprised at The Doors, Jamiroquai, kansas, and others....

everyone is entitled to his own opinion, of course, but i think it's absurd to post such a definitive list such as "50 WORST artists in music history" .... How about "50 musical artists I/we hate?""

eh, i just don't like when people state their opinions as facts.

yeah, that annoys me as well.

Other than Latoya Jackson (lol), for the most part those are all just retarded opinions.

well, i must admit that the 98 degrees thing didn't offend me at all ha ha ha

but a lot of the ones that i'd heard of didn't seem right to me.

i personally really like that mike and the mechanics song they talked about.

oh yeah I forgot about 98 degrees haha

I don't like the hating on stuff like Mike and the Mechanics as well as a few other pretty good 80's bands they mentioned.


Nor do I appreciate their hatred for 20-minute drum solos. For that matter, they seemed to grouse about a 2-1/2 minute drum solo in one song. Maybe they just don't like drums.

And Emerson, Lake, and Palmer? Come the frick on!

i wonder if young people made the list... those young people who feel that the only good music ever made is the music of their time/generation....... hmmm

That's possible. Probably why there was not more modern artists on there. It was more-or-less 80's and early 90's bashing. I can think of plenty artists today that deserve top spots on that list.



As a side note: I just noticed they added Yngwie Malmsteen on there? how can you be a guitar virtuoso but be one of the worst music artists? he's written some great and catchy stuff, IMO.

Best I can guess is that if they're not actually retarded they wrote it as a joke. There is just no way half of those deserve to be on a worst list. That's not even to say I like the artists I disagree with... I just know they're not the worst and I've heard much worse.

There have always been people just trying to make money. More so in the past than now.

really? I guess maybe since i wasn't actually around "back in the day" i don't know of the crappy bands???

i've always thought that since it's so much easier to make music now and because all you need is a pretty face, it'd be worse these days....

Well if you look back around 50 years ago, basically no one wrote their own music and they were just in it because someone picked them out. Of course, maybe the majority of the people that did write their own music were the blacks in jazz and blues. That kind of stuff. Most of the stuff you know of from between the 20s-60s was manufactured. A lot of it came from what they called the tin pan alley. It was an area is Chicago I think? Basically a think tank for music writers.

So pretty much most of the main stream artists were just the face of the music, not where it really came from. You still get that today, but I'd say it was more prevalent then.

Some of the best artists of that time were in jazz. For that matter, most.

I am an avid jazz listener, and the music being produced by the likes of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Clifford Brown, and others are still incredibly original. I can't speak for all genres at the time, but to be a successful jazz artist back in the day, one needed to be incredibly competent in their instrumental abilities.

i have always been pretty fascinated by the depth and creativity of jazz. it amazes me that, at a time without all the technological advances we have at hand, people could do the things they did.

I'd say the Beatles probably had someone writing with them after they got noticed. Then when they started doing hard drugs and making weird shit is when they became completely independent.

And I think that's jazz or blues period. Even today you may hear some main stream jazz or blues artist that isn't really amazing... but in the real communities there are still artists that are just crazy talented and really get the respect.

Kind of funny though isn't it? If you really want to work in music you've got to make a choice of whether you want the respect or the money. Sure, there are respected musicians that are famous... but they are far outnumbered by the people who are just doing what they're told. Sometimes it's even for the better that they sell-out. One of my favorite bands is Slipknot. Thank God they did what they did. I hate Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat.. If they hadn't gotten that offer from Roadrunner and completely changed their sound for that contract, I'd still hate them to this day and I wouldn't have some of my favorite albums.

it is really sad how "beneficial" it often is for artists to become sell-outs.

john lennon was a talented lyricist--unless he took someone else's credit a lot. however, i don't know my beatles facts that well, so i don't know how they started out and all.

it's a tough road, without a doubt.

I would love to make a living creating and possibly performing music. I hold respect in a higher regard, and I don't like when bands reinvent themselves and come back sounding like everyone else. However, I also need to make enough money to live, and that comes with fame.

Hell... me? I'd sell-out in a heartbeat. If some producer or labelhead came up to me and said that they'd sign me and I'd make millions if I did what they said I would take the offer. I need the money.

I can go do my own shit in my offtime when I'm not rolling in money.
