Salon.com has put together a list of The 15 Most Hated Bands of the Last 30 Years.
For the most part, they stuck with the OBVIOUS ones. But then again, you probably need to be notorious to be one of the MOST HATED.
I am quite certain you will be surprised at some of the bands that were chosen. I mean....really? Go ahead...take a look...
Here's the list, which doesn't seem to have been ranked:
The Black Eyed Peas
Insane Clown Posse
Hootie & the Blowfish
The Goo Goo Dolls
Dave Matthews Band
Lana Del Rey
Plus, they also provided these, quote, "Dishonorable Mentions" that just missed making the list: Kid Rock, Linkin Park, "real" Matchbox 20, Spin Doctors and Blues Traveler.
(We assume the "real Matchbox 20" note is referring to the band's FULL late-'90s, early-2000s, pre-spelling out "Twenty", pre-hiatus run . . . when they were EVERYWHERE.)
(But if that's the case, it should be noted that Matchbox Twenty officially started spelling out "Twenty" for their second album, "Mad Season", which came out in 2000. So maybe they're just talking about the debut album?)
(Salon.com has brief write-ups for each of the bands on their list.)
(And speaking of Insane Clown Posse, they recently appeared WITHOUT makeup. Gawker.com has the picture. There are a lot of pictures of them online without makeup . . . but it's still rare to see them in the flesh.)
