"Nasty language"... why are fanatic fundamentalists online?

Tenacious D are an amazing band, and also very fun!
Jack Black is one of the best male singers, what people ignore, because of his humour (which I love).

Talented, funny, amazing!

You can't kill the metal

They use really nasty language WAY too much and just sound stupid. I can't stand these guys.

Jack black is so funny

They really don't belong here

235 Mr. Bungle Mr. Bungle

They're like a diet version of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. And their singer Mike Patton is a talentless hack who had only one hit because he ripped off Anthony Kiedis' style. - phillysports

Triggered Chili Peppers fans... they just can't get over Mr. Bungle... - Kfox101

What the hell? They're LEGENDS of music, darlings

If you think The Rolling Stones/ Queen deserve to be on the list, you are deaf or listening to the wrong bands. End of story.

How is this band on the list? Their live shows are amazing and beyond fantastic, their songs are musicals. All the members are talented and Freddie Mercury has one of the greatest voices of all time. Plus, their songs are awesome, not just Bohemian Rhapsody, but Under Pressure, Invisible Man, Killer Queen, and We Will Rock You, as well as We Are The Champions. In fact, I played one of their songs on Guitar Hero because I wanted to. - AnimeDrawer

One direction is probably equal vote for them but damn they re amazing love of my life damn good

238 The Beatles The Beatles The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. The members consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They were soon known as the foremost and most influential act of rock era. Rooted in skiffle, beat, and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented ...read more.

The fact that so many books still name the Beatles "the greatest or most significant or most influential" rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art. Jazz critics have long recognized that the greatest jazz musicians of all times are Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Classical critics rank the highly controversial Beethoven over classical musicians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Rock critics are still blinded by commercial success: the Beatles sold more than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore they must have been the greatest. Jazz critics grow up listening to a lot of jazz music of the past, classical critics grow up listening to a lot of classical music of the past. Rock critics are often totally ignorant of the rock music of the past, they barely know the best sellers. No wonder they will think that the Beatles did ...more

All rock critics and serious and reasonable listeners and fans do Not simply point to the commercial success of The Beatles. There are many other aspects used to support acclaim, high regard, talent and important influence. I'm not arguing here that they need to be considered the best, but your argument that they belong on this worst list is rationally and logically unsupported and unsupportable. And despite however knowledgeable and intelligent you are about music, the fact that an incredible amount of people have formed the opinion that their songs and music sound great and are preferable cannot be disregarded or considered invalid. This is entertainment after all, never an exact science and it incorporates subjectivity by nature, even if your tastes and opinions disagree - Billyv

How is this on the list? Total fail

You know not of music the Beatles are the best in the last 100 years in any type of music you pick. Just look a the songs not their number one hits those are great song in any era. And most important history has spoken and proven you wrong already they still sell the most in this centrey like the say in sales if the dog eats the dog food its good. The Beatles music will be around in 500 hunderd years when most of the other stuff out will be just a footnote Bill Atlanta

I honestly do not like a single song this band has done. I respect its influence, but I hate their songs

I totally agree, who ever made this crappy list is just one of those pop lovers because I have no idea why most of these bands are anywhere on this list.

What the hell is wrong with you people it's Pink Floyd not Justin Bieber...!

Why the hell is Pink Floyd on this list? Whoever put them here (you're a sucky person), I have one thing to tell you. If you hate Pink Floyd, you hate music. Why, you ask me? Because they're the GODS of music. Get it? If not, go listen to Comfortably Numb, Astronomy Domine, Another Brick in the Wall and The Great Gig in the Sky. If you still don't understand, it's you're at fault because you're too stupid.

What? Worst band ever? This guys invented METAL ROCK! And they're the only good metal band that is not satanist! Black Sabbath is obviously illuminati's band.

Who the hell put ac dc on this list? - Elwood

What? This band is the worst? Try BEST. They have timeless classics like Back In Black (never gets old), Highway to Hell, Thunderstruck, and countless more. Jesus, people you guy suck at musical/band analysis.
