Funny, but if you talk to someone who was a serious indulger in 60's hard rock (Led Zeppelin, the Doors,  Cream, Allman Brothers, etc.)  and 70's hard rock (Deep Purple, Blue Oyster Cult, Uriah Heep, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, etc.) we are pretty adamant about certain things.   One -- We have almost no use for anything that followed these eras like even your beloved bands like Van Halen, Guns n Roses, Motley Crue, AC/DC and even those newer than that.    Two -- our favorite music is underground hard rock and the music we hate the most is hard rock played badly.    You just can't stand to be in the same room as that "crap" playing.         I thought this list was pretty spot on, by the way.

Mike Love is a no-talent parasite, sucking life from his infinitely-more talented cousin, Brian Wilson. Love actually had the B***s to fire Wilson and Al Giardine from the band just because Love owns the name? That's like Michael Jackson taking credit for writing the Lennon-McCartney catalogue because he owned it at one time.


You forgot Axle Rose. I'd love to tear out his colon and string him up by it. His "voice" is like a dentist's drill on a blackboard. He also makes my skin crawl when he "dances". What a slug!!

It's funny how there were no rap artist or major pop artist listed. Avril Lavigne wants to look like a bad **** punk rocker but doesn't claim punk or act like one either. She is one that I know a lot of people that love to hate her. J-Lo is another that should be listed. She is in it for all the money now. Jenny from the block? What ever.The only block she is walking down now is Wall Street. Metaphorically speaking. Steven Tyler is a douche so I am not surprised he was listed. Nickleback needs to go away. The first time I heard one of their songs I had to change the radio station.

I adore Bono.  The haters can just go do what they want.  Won't change my mind for a minute.

I think its awesome to have someone I can relate to and like so close, where have I been work, work and no tv.  I must say having two great people care for you is awesome!..

When the singer gets in the way of fan devotion
By Sean Nelson
Special to MSN Music

In the world of rock, no figure is more problematic than the lead singer. He or she gets all the attention and the lion's share of the glory, but is also the point person for all the disappointment, ... more
