Bands I Dont Understand Why People Love

After the "Bands I dont Like" list was a big hit for everybody, I figured why not make another one. That was really fun so lets try this again. Some of those replies were downright hysterical. Now with these bands I dont dislike them really, but I cant understand why they are soooo popular and loved.
1 Avenged Sevenfold

They had some decent songs here and there, but they damn sure shouldnt be huge like they are. Bat Country was an attempt at Mainstream success and it worked well. After the City of Evil, the self-titled lp came out and Ive never seen such a split opinion over it. For the record, the lead singer needs to lose the shades and bandana. Whether he knows it or not, it makes him wayyy less metal. Uh why e ie ieee
2 Disturbed

Now heres a band I forgot to put in the bands I dont like list. These guys are just downright mediocre. David is a bald dweeb who treats his audience like hes speaking to a Nazi rally (and hes Jewish, no offense my Jewish friends). But like how he commands the stage and everything like that is soooo cheesey. Not to mention props to the Dillenger for calling them out on their rock star mannerisms. Everyone else can bask in this hard wuss-rock, but not me. I like my cheesey music with a dose of irony.
3 Sublime

No way am I taking anything away from this band in the least, but I WILL say these guys are not commercial except for the self-titled. I find it unfair that everyone latched onto them after poor Bradley passed. As Mike Patton said in "Star A.D.": And when you die you become something worste than dead, you become a legend". I dont think Bradley would have enjoyed his newfound success so much. And FYI, 40oz. is a bad-ass record.
4 Papa Roach

I respect these guys and enjoy a couple of their tunes, but I find Coby Dick or Jacoby or whatever the hell his name is this week to be fake. You ever watch that show Scarred with him hosting? It will just cut to montages of him posing for the camera in his half-gay seriousness. Speare me, please. And now all of a sudden hes all tatted up and his hero is Nikki Sixx? However he gets a little form of props since he always says how much he loves my beloved FNM.
5 Linkin Park

Whats this world coming to? How on Earth are these guys huge when all they did was make a semi-decent debut record that ended up selling 47 million trillion albums. These guys have no integrity whatsoever, even if some of the songs are catchy. Their style is so very 2001 still and thats a hazardous chip on their shoulder. But the EP they did with the Hamster made me laugh so its cool enough I suppose.
6 No Doubt

I really respect this band a whole lot, and I find Gwen Stefani not only super attractive but she can write a tune too (that one track she did with Akon was such a great song). However, that doesnt mean all of their albums should be praised when each one of them have fallen under the iceburg in terms of quality found on Tragic Kingdom. This band is a good example of the blind leading the blind.
7 Marilyn Manson

You would have a hard time convincing me this dude has talent for writing a good song. No wonder why he relies on the shock value so much since his music falls oh so short. However he was and is wrongfully accused of all of the bad press hes gotten and I do feel a bit bad for him, but I still think he musically sucks. Saw him live as well, and walked out. At least I saw Slayer right before him so I walked away happy. For this guy its material over substance. You want good shock-rockage with bad-ass guitar and wonderful singing? Check out a little dude from Minneapolis who has a knack for dating the hottest women and wears heels since hes so short. He also changed his name to a symbol that looks a little something like this: O(+>
8 Def Leppard

This ones for DaveyBoy. Some of their songs are super-catchy but I see right through it. I find these aging, leather-pants-wearing-like-its-still-1984 douchcocks to be absolutely annoying. And its a shame, I know these dudes have talent on their instruments, but they just dont let loose in favor of top 40. No thanks, life is too short to wallow in bad music.
9 Timbaland

Of course I respect this dude, but now hes just getting stale. his attempts at pleasing the rock world by producing the Chris Cornell record fell soooo flat, and now hes recouping. Pretty much all of his beats are the same annoying India-tinged crap that I chuckle over when the masses cum when they hear them. Ill take DJ Premier and a Newcastle and sit in the corner thank you.
10 Bush

You wanna know why I dont understand why people love this band? Because Gavin Rossdale is a tool, thats why. Plain and simple. Hes a terrible lyricist, a sub-par guitar player and hes also living off of Gwen's paychecks. Im not hating really, I just think hes a waste of sperm.
