Unfair to single out the Eagles. Occasionally those guys could come up with a toe-tapping motherfucker of a tune.

The Eagles are always the fall guy.

I thought Lee Majors was the Fall Guy.


(I partially blame Markie Post for my attraction to short haired women. Well, her and Mary Stewart Masterson in Some Kind of Wonderful.)

much of that list is spot on. DMB, Hootie, Spin Doctors.. HORRIBLE.

But Wings was a good fucking band. Fuck you if you don't like Wings!

Yep. And I stand by my previous comments. Fuck the Eagles.
Some of these other bands seem a little undeserved of the title though. LCD Soundsystem? I get if they're not your cup of tea, and I get if the fact that they are a more recent bands makes the knees jerk just a little bit more than, say, Jefferson Starship, but have they really stood the test of time that would allow them be called one of the worst bands ever? As ranked, are they really only slightly less shitty than the Eagles?

And I'd love to hear someone's thoughts on how Oasis is one of the worst bands ever? I can think of waaayyy worse.

The hippie count at the Phish show last summer wasn't that large. Surprisingly.
