10 Bands That Should Never Be Heard From Again

The usual suspects are here--Nickelback, Creed, Britney--but some of the other choices might surprise you. I don't agree with all of these. Most, but not all.

From Dumb As A Blog.


The Doors had their time, but that time is over. Break on through to the other side? If the side we get to break through to is one where I never have to hear "Riders On The Storm" ever again than let's go do that right now. If there is a dentist's office in Hell "The End" never stops playing in the waiting room.


Coldplay is such a terrible band that when you go to YouTube or Vimeo to look up clips of Coldplay's music, the ads that run before the videos are small snippets of other awful Britpop garbage, as though to say, "Wow! Are you serious? Are you are the kind of person who might spend money on Coldplay? Then perhaps you might also be so foolish as to purchase this pseudo-symphonic nonsense from an unknown weirdo who looks like an extra in Twilight film. I mean, worth a shot, right?"


The Black Eyed Peas are less of a band than they are an efficient machine designed to appeal to as many consumer demographics as possible. That being said, hearing the Black Eyed Peas play music isn't really so bad, but it also never really makes that full leap into, what's the word? Ah yes, good. Of course, being a mildly catchy pop band with no real sense of soul shouldn't get you banned for life. I mean, that kind of treatment is reserved for acts who, oh, I don't know, ruin "Sweet Child Of Mine" during the Super Bowl. OH RIGHT, they did that.


When disgraced former Senator and Presidential Candidate John Edwards was having an affair with his campaign videographer Rielle Hunter while his wife was dying of cancer, he reportedly promised his mistress that he would marry her on a rooftop in New York City, while Dave Matthews played a private concert for them. By the way, in the comments, let me know if this little story makes you want to cry, shudder, or throw up first. I kinda want to do all at once.

See the rest here.

Who did they forget?


  1. I wouldn't have put Billy Joel on this list. I don't like all of his music, but I like a lot of it. I wouldn't really call him a "band" either, but I suppose that is nit-picking.

  2. I agree with all of them. I would add Metallica, U2 and all the nostalgia cash-in reunion bands.

  3. Yeah, Billy Joel.... Keep playing his old stuff - it's awesome. The Doors - same thing. But they should stop MAKING music. I agree with Chrocs. And I would add most of the hair bands of the 80's.

  4. Van Halen.

    And most any band from 1985-1991.

  5. I despise Dave Matthews...over rated crap.

  6. Cool. I was beginning to think I was the only one who didn't like Coldplay and Dave Matthews Band.

  7. Yes, Tink, any boy band. And yes, Main Line Sportsman, Dave Matthews is horrible. I have mixed feelings on Coldplay. Some songs I hate, some I love.

  8. I love the Doors, but just "like" the rest. Wouldn't hurt my feelings if I never heard most of them again. Then again, I never really got grunge and I live in Seattle. And, what's up with gansta rap? Doesn't that noise count as toilet flushing material. Just sayin......

  9. I agree with all of those except for The Doors. Dave Matthews is the True Face of Evil.
