Top Ten Bands and Artists You'll Always Find in The Bargain Bin in Stores or Charity Shops
I love flicking through the CDs in charity shops and always amuses me to keep finding the same bands and artists that people have given up on but I can hardly ever find the genre or artist / band I'm looking for. Feel free to add any of your own band or artist you'd gladly give to charity or vote for an existing item you agree with.

Weezer? Really...what a dumb list! - Jezz
I added Weezer because EVERY time I go in a charity store I see the Weezer 1994 album with the very unimaginative title: Weezer. Either everyone puts the same bad album in or it's the same album I see time and time again that nobody wants. - Britgirl
Venture into my local charity shops and you're guaranteed to find at least two copies of 'Born to Do It' sitting there, staring at you, clad with a beanie hat and giant headphones. - Entranced98
