    Worst band, ever. Officially too!

    http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...sic_worst_dc_2

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Insane Clown Posse, the Detroit rap duo beloved by teenage boys for their creepy face make-up and X-rated lyrics, have been named the worst band ever by Blender magazine.

    The music publication's September issue said Insane Clown Posse "sound even stupider than they look," and derided them for rapping about "40-ouncers and venereal disease."


    Officials at the band's Psychopathic Records label were less than enthusiastic about the rating.


    "They've brought themselves up from nothing to become an international musical phenomena (sic), and yet, somehow, they still get no respect from fine mainstream publications such as Blender Magazine," they said in a Web posting (http://www.insaneclownposse.com).


    They noted that the Insane Clown Posse album dubbed the worst by Blender, "The Wraith: Shangri-La," actually received a three-star review (i.e. very good in its genre) in the publication's January/February issue.


    No. 2 on the list was 1970s supergroup Emerson, Lake & Palmer, followed by once-hirsute balladeer Michael Bolton (news), mellow jazz saxophonist Kenny G. and the Jefferson Airplane pop spinoff Starship.

    What? Are these people idiots? ELP was one of the most respected art-rock bands of the 70's. I have never heard them mentioned in the same breath as 'bad' or 'worst'. Musically, they had few peers. Carl Palmer is one of the best drummers of all time (Neal Peart of Rush is the best) and they took a lot of classical music (Hoedown, etc) and were able to convert them into something modern and listenable to the 70's listening audience.

    I am so pissed, that when I get the Sept. issue of Blender, I'm going to reprint all of the Top 50 (their website only gives 50-41) and then give my comments on each of their choices. Stupid, ignorant jackholes!

    Wow, I just read the 50-41, and some of those bands really don't suck. I mean, at least they all stay on pitch. If you're going to have talentles acts, put Britney Spears in there, not Kenny G. At least he can play the saxophone well.

    Why on earth are the Goo Goo Dolls on the list? Or the Doors? The highest one on the list that deserves it is Vanilla Ice.
