Top 10 Worst Classic Rock BandsYou know the bands that old people brag about that are supposedly the only good kind of rock music and that all modern Rock is garbage. Not every classic rock band is a jem. Hair/ glam metal still counts because that is actually just hard rock with poppier lyrics.
The Top Ten
Yeah, them old folks have very little to contribute of any consequence... Funny though, at the height of this bands popularity, I literally knew no one who took them seriously. There target audience was clearly pre- pubescent boys. Their great stage show was all anyone over 14 wanted to see. If you know anyone, at any age singing the praises of this band, you have my pity. - Ned964
All the songs are very similar. I think they had a good start just ruined it later on
The worst garage band ever to make the big time. It's inexplicable.
Ok yes they are overrated but nowhere near the worst
all the artists on this list aren't bad some are mediocre yes but I would take these bands anyday over garbage like Asking Alexandria, Black Veil Brides, Limp Bizkit, Papa Roach etc - christangrant
When I think of Winger I'm thinking of Stewart from Beavis and Butthead wearing that T-shirt in knowing how very forgettable they were there pretty much an interesting piece of history. - htoutlaws2012
A extremlely forgettable band at best.
Not really that great in all honesty.
Nonsense. A band cultivated and marketed to the masses. A sad statement on the tastes of anyone listening to popular radio at the time. I feel blessed that I've only heard a very small sample size of this bands "music". A bunch of rubbish - Ned964
Especially Cherry Pie, the most overrated annoying yet somehow catchy song of all time. Jani Lane was also a bad person. - Lucretia
And people claim that nu metal is corny...
Somehow youtube keeps recommending cherry pie and its hurting me - EliHbk
Utterly not even semi-decent.
I've still got friends that listen to this nonsense. To each their own. For the tremendous popularity they achieved in the late 1980's, this band easily gets my vote for the worst. A couple palatable tunes, but largely a disaster. - Ned964
Hair metal is hard rock which still counts as Classic Rock to me.
A one hit wonder band that was signed by Bon Jovi... enough said.
Bon Jovi is extremely Overhated I do agree they didn't deserve to go into the hall of fame over Priest but they are still a good band - christangrant
Its honestly weird people consider them metal... - Lucretia
This guy shouldn't be on the top 10 worst I listen to him everyday this guy is a legend
Nothing in the world pisses me off more than this bandV 2 Comments
For a "Classic Rock" band they really are mediocre.
What do people see in this band? Honestly I see a mediocre wannabe Beatles and the Beatles is already mediocre to begin with.
There instrumental is not that good and all sounds the same, plus Mick Jaggers voice is not really singing sometimes its just talking - Lucretia
Made better blues songs than the beatles. Built on their influences unlike the beatles. - sweetbeef
"Mediocre wannabe Beatles? " Is your hearing okay? There are virtually NO similarities between them. The Stones are a rock, rock 'n' roll, and R&B band. Not long after achieving fame, the Beatles went heavily pop. As to mediocrity, it's true the Stones are a studio band. Very consistently disappointing live.V 6 Comments
Just not good at all.
A mediocre band at best with nothing that's remotely interesting.
Round and Round is so stupid. And that's their only well known song. - Lucretia
annoying - EliHbk
Maybe including the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and Queen was done for shock value? Anyway, I saw Cheap Trick live once and it was obviously a track show. Every time the lead guitarist went on a solo, the lights would go off in the theatre. No kidding. At first I thought it kinda cool, but as the set dragged on, it got very annoying, many others noticed as well. It may have been only that night, but I had the misfortune of going that night. - Ned964
My god I hate this band... - SomePersonYouHate
They may be overrated (not really, they deserve it) but they definitely do not deserve a spot here - SoldierOfFortune
Not really good and overrated. - Lucretia
Not cracked up to all it is said to be - EliHbk
Queen is one of the best
obviously a troll entry - christangrant
Again obvious Troll Entry - christangrant
Failed troll? - EliHbk
Again I disagree.
Extremely Overrated but not "worst" material - christangrant
Overrated is an entirely different concept, don't vote because of that, go to an overrated lsit if you want to. But Led Zeppelin are talented. - SoldierOfFortune
They are a very overrated rock band. But think where rock music would be today without them? Hard rock wouldn't be like today if there weren't led zeppelin. Eddie Van Halen and Van Halen, Steve Vai, Queen, Rush, Kirk Hammett, AC/DC, Ramones, Aerosmith wouldn't be here today. - zxm
