Explain. Now.

The first seven are bands that have their own massive fan bases, but I don't understand why. The last three are bands that I completely adore and wonder why anybody would hate them. I need explanations. I need answers. Why do some of you guys like these terrible bands, and why do some of you guys hate these awesome bands?

:generic riff: BARF BARF BARF :generic riff: BARF BARF


Ugh, these Metalcore half-wits are capable of nothing more than total crap. Nothing they write is even average, and anything good the band might've achieved is always ruined by the horrendous vocalist singing his over-dramatic, cluttered lyrics. A ruinous band at best.
2 Escape The Fate
Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooring.


GEEEEENNNNNNNEEEEEERRRRRRRRIIIIIIICCCCCCCC.
3 Fall Out Boy
Hey, check it out - we didn't even TRY to create anything worthwile, but got a big single!


Let's not reinvent the wheel, let's go steal the wheels off of those other bands' cars and drive our cash cab on them! Unoriginal Pop-Punk that rely entirely on catch and lame-ass lyrics and neglect important concepts such as artistry should not get popular, but Fall Out Boy did.
4 Panic! At The Disco
Fake, fake, fake, fake, fake


HAY GUYS LET'S SOUND LIKE FALL OUT BOY, MAYBE THEY'LL SIGN US TO THEIR LABEL. Also, let's have obnoxious song titles that have nothing to do with our BS lyrics!

BLAMSPLOSION ARRGHH RRAAHHHRR WHAM WHAM WHAM


Rawr, over-complicated instrument playing and super-fast drumming! Unfortunately, as overwhelmingly talented as the players are, everything combines to create a chaotic, nonsensical mess of ear-bleeding distortion and incomprehensible screaming.
6 The Arctic Monkeys
Overrated as all HELL


What is the big deal with this band? They're trendy, not original - it's COOL to sound like 80's Post Punk with extra dance-ness and trite lyrics.
7 Insane Clown Posse
Ahahahahahahahahahahaha


I know that there are fans of this band SOMEWHERE. Would one of them step forward and tell me why they feel ICP is NOT the worst band of all time? Because I'm pretty convinced that they are.
8 Radiohead
Fantastic British Alternative that refuses to stay the same


Honestly, I think that Radiohead are a brilliant band. They find a way to successfully reinvent themselves with almost every release, and their music is expertly textured and fitting for Thom's voice and meaningful lyrics. How can you hate on one of the most genius bands of the last twenty years?
9 Sigur Ros
Beautiful, languid, elegant Post-Rock


Tell me what is not to enjoy about whimsical atmosphere and the touching coos and cries of Jonsi's voice.
10 Muse
Energetic, dramatic British Alternative with incredible musicianship and flair


While not everything they do is exactly perfect, what don't some of you like about really cool riffage, neat lyricism, and this damn powerful trio's rock n' roll attitude?
