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.
