FYI: The 15 Most Hated Bands

Pat+Monahan+Pat+Monahan+Concert+hCzKNhjpcUVl-1Here are the most hated bands of the last 30 years. This isn’t my list and in no way is it definitive, but if all this music disappeared tomorrow, I wouldn’t miss one song. OK. Maybe Smash Mouth’s All-Star. Kidding.

1. Nickelback
2. 98 Degrees
3. Smash Mouth
4. Black Eyed Peas
5. Insane Clown Posse
6. Hootie & the Blowfish
7. The Goo Goo Dolls
8. John Mayer (I don’t love him but his inclusion is more about his perceived dating douche-bagery, than his music, I think.)
9. Dave Matthews Band
10. Creed
11. Train (THE worst. Lead singer Pat Monahan, pictured)
12. Phish
13. Limp Bizkit
14. Blink 182
15. Lana Del Rey (again not my list. It’s too soon to tell about this one, but she does bug the crap out of people)

Honorable Mention: Kid Rock, Linkin Park, Matchbox 20, Spin Doctors, and Blues Traveler. So, which five bands would you add to the list? And don’t say Gaga – she’s not a band. (via Salon.com; photo: Pacific Coast News)
