Below is the list of the "top" 10.

Cheers,

No brainer for that!

I agree with the rest of the top 10.

I know that last year, Blender compiled the 50 worst musical acts of all time.

Don't fret people, Queen isn't on the list.

I saw the list of the 50 worst artists ever.

Somehow some idiot decided to put a legendary ban like The Doors and like this wasn't bad enough they forgot to include Kelly Osbourne, P. Diddy, Enrique Iglesias, William Shatner, and Cher.

Dude, Back Chat's not that bad of a song. I actually like it. The video's pretty cool too.

Anyway, Vanilla Ice has brought shame to Queen by using the riff to Under Pressure and totally bombing all because of that song...for shame...

On a bare and weathered shore

We can only bow to the here and now

In our elemental war

God... I never thought it would be possible to dislike that magazine any more than I already did. THEN, I saw Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start The Fire" on the song list, And Toad The Wet Sprocket on the musical acts list and wanted to shoot all of the editors. ;)

"We Built This City" - Starship (1985)
"Achy Breaky Heart" - Billy Ray Cyrus (1992)
"The Heart of Rock & Roll" - Huey Lewis & The News (1984)
"Ebony and Ivory" - Paul McCartney e Stevie Wonder (1982)
"Don't Worry, Be Happy" - Bobby McFerrin (1988)

These songs are fabulous. OK, maybe Achy Breaky Heart was something of a guily pleasure, but it was a catchy tune. But come on. "Ebony and Ivory" was a good song. And "We Built This City" was one of the bests songs...EVAR.

"Everybody Have Fun Tonight" - Wang Chung (1986)
"Rollin'" - Limp Bizkit (2000)
"ICE ICE BABY - VANILA ICE(1990)
"Party All the Time" - Eddie Murphy (1985)
"American Life" - Madonna (2003)

Yeah, these sucked.
