Are Nickelback Really The Worst Band Of All Time?

Readers of Word Magazine have just voted Nickelback the worst band of all time, by a whacking great margin - they got 20% of the total vote.



A pretty inarguable choice - we can all agree that Chad Kroeger's gang of grunting lumberjacks suck gigantic gorilla balls.



In other respects, though, it's a curiously old-fashioned list. A lot of the bands mentioned don't even exist any more. How can you still be angry, in 2009, about M People (6th), the Spin Doctors (10th) and Sleeper (11th)? How long have these people held a grudge for?

Surely there are acts around right now that are far more worthy of people's derision? N-Dubz, for example. Or the truly hateful 3Oh!3.

Which bands would you gleefully flush down history's U-bend?

Here's Word's full list, by the way.

1) Nickelback - 19.8%
2) Lighthouse Family - 14.3%
3) Toploader - 11.8%
4) Razorlight - 9.8%
5) Savage Garden - 8.4%
6) M People - 7.5%
7) Maroon 5 - 6.6%
8) 4 Non Blondes - 5.5%
9) Snow Patrol - 5.2%
10) Spin Doctors - 3.6%
11=) Beautiful South - 2.0%
11=) Sleeper - 2.0%
13) New Radicals - 1.1%
14=) Lighting Seeds - 0.9%
14=) The Troggs - 0.9%
16)Crowded House - 0.5%
