Band Ratings for TopTenners #2I got a decent amount of comments from my last one, so I decided to do another one. Obviously every time I make a new one, the bands will be averagely less famous. Rate them out of 10 stars, or whatever you would prefer.
5/10. A better hard rock band, but still not my style.
8/10. I once would have had them topped out, but I've cooled on Metal. Still, there is no denying the imagery associated to the band, and the unique guitar riffs were groundbreaking in the early 70's. Trail blazers, despite what some would have us believe.
5.5/10 - I'm not much of a fan. Their music is boring and I don't like Ozzy's voice. Paranoid and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath are good songs though.
4/10 I never liked Black Sabbath even if I'm much into rock and metal
7/10. Got some very good songs, but the singing can get a little annoying.
4/10. I think Billie Joe has become a good songwriter, but I also think Green Day got their foot in the door by plagiarizing some bands I love, The Clash and Stiff Little Fingers, to name 2 of them. There are some punk rock purists I know that absolutely hate Green Day, and I do see their point. But my daughter loves them, so having been exposed to much of the band's material, on a loop at times, I will admit there is some good stuff there.
8/10. Their earlier stuff was better than their later stuff
8/10 - they're good, but they've went downhill. Their best songs are on their older albums.
8.5/10. Just fantastic, they have very consistently good music.
9/10. Made a seamless transition from an underground novelty, to a more pop oriented sound, and I think, back to somewhere in between, while maintaining their pop sensibilities. Theyve taken a unique concept a very long ways, and spawned many copycat acts, but none can match the original. I obviously like the band very much. They were a trip to see live, especially before they popped.
6.5/10. They are alright. They have some good songs, but their albums aren’t very good. Songs like Under the Bridge, Otherside, Californication, Scar Tissue are good. Albums like Californication, By the Way, Stadium Arcadium etc aren’t very good. Just too much filler and boring songs.
5/10 - I only like Under The Bridge. Their other songs don't interest me.
4/10. Another metal band that, again, doesn't change my thoughts on the genre.
10/10. This gotta be one of my favorite metal bands of all time. The band members are very talented and their riffs and solos are all great
10/10. The best metal band of all time by far. Everything from the instrumentals to the lyrics and the singing is just spot on.
4/10. Again, I'm not a metal fan.
6/10. Such a unique style, and Canadian. But I'm not a much of a fan. RIP: Neil Peart
9/10. That such great sounds came from a 3 piece band has always been astounding to me, and many others. Its their 70's stuff that really resonates with me, but the whole catalog is pretty consistently good.
4/10 - I hate Geddy Lee's voice, he is what prevents me from enjoying their music.
5/10. Never heard any of their songs, so I wouldn't know.
7/10. They're a little cheesy, but still produced some great stuff. - TheHabsFan
7/10. A band that has 2 distinct personalities to me, and even the band owns up to this. Their albums "Rocks" and "Toys in the Attic" are 2 of the most iconic hard rock albums of all time, and remain among my favorites. The mid 80's on version of the band took a decided turn towards catchy, pop oriented songs, and I personally like very little of it. In an interview I saw, Steven Tyler was asked why the band came back with such a differant sound, and he plainly and honestly stated the goal was to make money, lots of it, as they were all broke. When asked where all the money the band made in the 70's had went, he again answered honestly by pointing to his nostrils. - CyberRat
3/10 - I really don't like them. - RiverVibeZ
6.5/10. They have some great songs, but they also have some bad songs. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo
5.5/10. Nothing much here, highly overrated.
7/10. I'm a bit torn when it comes to the Who. One one hand, I see a band that used a lot of simple chords and melodies, and certainly took great advantage of writing lyrics that resonated with many for the times they were introduced. On the other hand, as I had dove deeper into their catalog, I've come to madly respect the genius that is Pete Townshend, perhaps the best songwriter of rocks golden area. He really knows how to build songs... There's a lot of stuff that speaks to me, and a lot that doesn't.
7.5/10. Talkin bout my geeeeneraaation.
2.5/10. No offense to Linkin Park fans, but I think their music sucks.
I used to hate them but you know I started to think they aren't that bad still not a band that I frequently listen to.
6/10. I like the band, but think some of that sound that I found so unique when they popped, also wore out rather quickly.
5/10. Sorry to say, but I've never heard any of their songs. I will get to it though.
6/10. Creep is an amazing song, otherwise not much.
7/10. Not the biggest fan of them, but they do have some great songs
6.5/10. Again, very mediocre.
4/10 - it's boring and not my thing. They're kinda pretetinous too.
6/10. Guitar is legendary!
8/10. Really revolutionary guitar rock for its time, brilliant. But obviously, Jimi left us wanting more.
Great list TheHabsFan. Its interesting to read all the differant viewpoints on these bands.
5/10 - not into them, but they're listenable.
