OK, well what if we change the rule so that when we lop of the branch, we get to keep the stump of the originator. That way, we could chop off Nirvana's branch and get to keep Nirvana, but we wouldn't have Creed, et al. That should make it easier: good bands that influenced bad bands...

Who caused Nickelback? That's the question. Nirvana? You willing to lose those four (or five) albums to prevent all the terrible music that followed in those footsteps?

Who caused ICP?


I agree, Jake. I think you have to make the painful cut or no cut at all. To eradicate Nickelback you will need to obliterate Pearl Jam. To get rid of Bush, you'll have kill Cobain way before he did it himself.

I would like to propose an amendment that would also eliminate the fans ONLY of the horrible bands that disapper (but not fans of the "root" band). That will vastly increase my propensity to pull the hangman's lever on some of the bands I like.

Who do I have to kill to be rid of all the people with BNL or DMB stickers on their minivans?

I would guess all the people with BNL or DMB stickers on their minivans.

The Housemartins. I'll miss them a little, god bless 'em, but it's worth it.

This one's tough. He claims The Beatles, but I smell Paul Simon instead, and I say so long, Paul.

Who do I eliminate to get rid of all the terrible emo? Do I really have to take out the amazing Rites of Spring?

Nickleback were the lovechild of Canadian Content regs and Creed. They go.

Barenaked Ladies were caused by the Beatles. They stay.

Wow. Remember people: 'With great power'...

The problem here is that crappy bands are inspired by good ones. Are there any groups inspired by Korn? No. Will there ever be? No.

Having said that, I would happily lop off the branch that gave birth to nu metal, consequences be damned.
