Important Inquiry

If you multiply the longevity of a rock and roll band by their fame and popularity, and then multiply that by how fucken unlistenably horrible their music sounds, is there any band with even close to as high as score as U2?

    You’re probably like “J Geils Band or GTFO,” right?

    Nirvana.

    Trebuchet

    Pat Boone.

    For some definitions of “rock” and “band”.

    So ABBA isn’t in this question, either.

    I take it you’re not talking about Christian rock bands like Jonas Brothers and Creed (who hold the title as worst Pearl Jam tribute band). So I have to vote for Greenday, a punk band who are the opposite of everything real punk bands (i.e., bands like Dropkick Murphys, Bad Religion and Ramones) are. Greenday even had a a Broadway musical adapted from one of their biggest hits, which we can all agree is what punk is truly about.

    Metallica.

    Fucking soulless, insipid metal-by-the-numbers.

    Foreigner. If we did the same for movies, it would be the Matrix series.
