Great Canadian band lead singer went to penticton high school

ahhh Metal. Bands like Black Sabbath and Pantera started it, and, for some reason, some new bands decided one day: "Hey, you know what would be funny? If we shat all over the metal genre"! Thus, Children of Boredom was born.

What's wrong with cob? They have best keyboardist in the world and top 10 guitarists (and good drummer) - Disturbedpotato

One of the best bands. Amazing live performances

164 Short Stack

as an australian I'm sad to say these so called rockers are a part of my country, very very horrible

165 Nightwish Nightwish Nightwish is a symphonic metal band from Kitee, Finland. The band was formed in 1996 by lead songwriter and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, guitarist Emppu Vuorinen, and lead singer Tarja Turunen.

This band should not be on this list. Yes, symphic metal is not for everyone, but these guys are the best in the genre. Their music is bombastic and thought provoking. The combination of melodies is intriguing. No way their music is cheesy Pretentious music.

They are awesome and one of the best bands ever. Curse the person who put this on here.

Who would hate on this awesome band?!

If you voted for anyone else, STOP! I have your all time winner. Don't believe me? Just youtube their live stuff. Nightwish sets an all time low in cheesy pretentious music and their fan base has NO sense of humor when it comes to criticizing them.

166 Volbeat Volbeat Volbeat are a Danish metal band which was formed in Copenhagen. They play a fusion of rock and roll, heavy metal and rockabilly.
167 Kansas Kansas Kansas is an American rock band that became popular in the 1970s initially on album-oriented rock charts and later with hit singles such as "Carry On Wayward Son" and "Dust in the Wind".

WHAT? Excuse me but they don't belong here. Go listen to Carry On Wayward Son.

Kansas has some great songs. I like Carry on Wayward Sun, Point of Know Return, The Wall and Play The Game Tonight. Dust in the Wind is too popular though in my opinion. - matty925

Happy I escaped the death trap of my band preforming carry on. Ugh!

Kansas is great

169 Suicide Silence Suicide Silence Suicide Silence is an American deathcore band from Riverside, California. Formed in 2002, the band has released four full-length studio albums, one EP and eleven music videos.

Whoever says Mitch lucker deserved to die is such an inconsiderate prick. He did nothing to deserve to lose his own life and people are telling his 7 year old to slit her emo wrists and die!? It's so stupid. Suicide Silence is a great band in my opinion. They've helped me through problems and the death of Mitch was heartbreaking to everyone who is a fan of SS

I don't get you guys. I don't like suicide silence, but you want this guy to die? That's messed up.

Suicide silence is an amazing band and Mitch lucked DID NOT deserve to die he was an amazing lead singer and will never be forgotten

This should totally be in the top 10.

170 Hole Hole Hole was an American alternative rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California in 1989 by singer and guitarist Courtney Love and lead guitarist Eric Erlandson.

Courtney Love. Kurt Cobain's polar opposite. Sucks at singing, total douche, can't write songs, etc. - naFrovivuS

There is no way the devil wears prada, radiohead, and nine inch nails are worse than this.

Hole shouldn't be on this list

Should be number one

171 Courtney Love Courtney Love

Well, I have to say I'm a little biased after I heard what she said about dave grohl.

She isn't even a band, stupid.

172 Pearl Jam Pearl Jam Pearl Jam is a Grunge Rock Band formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. The band had comprised of Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament. ...read more.

Honestly, who voted for Pearl Jam? They're part of the whole 90s Grunge thing, and that's definitely not bad.

Cross reference your comment with band timelines.

Seriously, why do people like this band so much? Vedder's voice is so annoying and nothing he says makes any sense. Just because they're emotional? All bands are emotional!

Why?

173 DNCE DNCE DNCE is an American pop rock band. The group consists of members Joe Jonas, Jack Lawless, Cole Whittle, and JinJoo Lee.
174 Huey Lewis and the News

The heart of rock-n-roll may still be beating, but not in this dreadful tripe. They should be in the top ten worst for "Happy to Be Stuck With You" alone. And "Hip to be Square! " And, oh everything but their first hit, "Heart & Soul." Commercial claptrap filtered through an even more commercial style and then cuted up with even more commercial fashioning. Oh, the humanity!

Heart and Soul was their fourth hit single, Do You Believe in Love was their first - frankmartin

Huey and the band like writing happy songs. Don'tcha think there are enough bands that write unhappy music that we didn't need another one? They did alright chart wise with 29 singles hitting the four different US charts. - frankmartin

Can't help but think of dialogue from American Psycho lol

175 We Butter the Bread With Butter We Butter the Bread With Butter We Butter the Bread with Butter is a German metalcore band from Lübben, noted for their heavy use of electronic music characteristics.

They need to stop burping n their microphones and make some real music. they should also stop burping about a cow that goes "bree bree" - chickasawcaleb

People make stupid band names

176 Rainbow

Rainbow is awesome, but there are so many brainwashed idiots on this side that got no sense in music so...

Anything Ritchie or Dio was a part of can't be bad.

177 Cake Cake Cake is an American alternative rock band from Sacramento, California. Consisting of singer John McCrea, trumpeter Vince DiFiore, guitarist Xan McCurdy, bassist Gabe Nelson and drummer Paulo Baldi, the band has been noted for McCrea's sarcastic lyrics and monotone vocals, DiFiore's trumpet parts, and ...read more.

This is the worst band of all time. Lead singer can't sing and all their songs sound the same.

Why is this on here?

178 Hypocrisy Hypocrisy Hypocrisy is a death metal band from Sweden. It was formed in 1990 in Ludvika, Sweden by Peter Tägtgren.
179 Grojband Grojband Grojband is a Canadian animated series developed by Fresh TV and distributed by FremantleMedia, Ltd and created by Todd Kauffman and Mark Thornton. ...read more.

This band is just way too terrible! What the hell kind of name is Grojband? This is a rip-off of Phineas and Ferb.

Okay, I know this is a fictional band, but could the creators at least TRY to make the characters come up with good songs?! The show was terrible, by the way.

Worst thing in existence - Crysis

Best band ever. - regularponyfan09

180 ABBA ABBA ABBA were a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972 by members Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.
