I refuse to play because I can't choose Nickelback.

A bunch of people posted boy bands despite that being against the rules too, so toss up Nickelback if you want. They've earned it.

Eh it wasn't "against the rules" just polite request.

Re: If you could erase five bands from ever having existed

Hmmm tough choice.

Nirvana, definitely. Really don't get what the fuss is about there, they're utterly shocking.
Franz Ferdinand, for starting an annoying trend of nu-boyband all-sound-the-same-indie-crap in British music. Or if it wasn't them who started it, whoever did.
Aerosmith - Utterly, utterly bad, they have never been good. And without them perhaps Walk This Way wouldn't be on every radio station.
Limp Bizkit, for wrecking my early teens by being, at the time, 'cool'. And for Behind Blue Eyes The Shit Version.
Nine Inch Nails - I love Hurt, so it really pains me to say this. But everything else they've produced has made me cringe. I'd be prepared to sacrifice Hurt (or hope Johnny Cash would come up with it by himself ) to lose the rest of their catalogue.

Re: If you could erase five bands from ever having existed

Iron Maiden-I grew up in the 70s-80s and this band was sooooooo overrated-can't stand their music, pretentious crap

Panic At the Disco-not even pretentious, just crap, bad spoken word poetry set to music

Morrissey-'nuff said, here! The granddad of emo, which is a self-pitying joke of a style

Brittany "Trailer Trash" Spears-if her life wasn't so screwed up we could just forget her, but she insists on staying in the news long after her shelf life has passed...

The entire deathmetal genre-incoherent, repetitious screaming is not music no matter how many electric basses you add or how fast you play them

The Beatles, the sound of them just grates on my ears,
Oasis, see above,
Girls Aloud, I've never wanted to slap so many fellow females,
Daniel O'Donnel, because he is the creepiest man in the world,
Babyshambles, because that Pete thing should have been put away long ago.

Re: If you could erase five bands from ever having existed

Well, since I can't list Creed, Nickelback, the boy bands, and the girl trash...

Nirvana. The single most overrated pile of trash ever.

I can't think of anyone else, which just means I just ignored their drivel.

Which ones would you pick? And try to make these lists interesting, i.e., not completely obvious choices that everyone hates anyway like Creed, Nickelback, or some Boiband, but bands that you hate and a lot of people like.

1. Bob Marley

2. The Who

3. The Eagles

4. Nirvana

5. Red Hot Chili Peppers
I don't even know who you are anymore.

I can't be limited to just bands, individual artists must be included. I'm fairly easy on music, like I am with movies and TV. I'll go with:

1. Elvis Costello and whatever his band was. The Attractions, maybe? Dreadful stuff.

2. Elvis Presley. Ugh. Hmmmm, maybe I don't like the name.

3. Dave Matthews Band.

4. Hootie and the Blowfish. They were so popular for a while and I never could stand them.

5. John Mayer. WTF is up with him? I think he's terrible and people seem to just LOVE him. Yuck.

I'm just going to pretend I didn't see anybody list The Beatles, The Eagles, Nirvana, The Who and Pink Floyd.

The Bee Gees
Suzanne Vega- My Name is Luka
Hanson
Marc Cohn-for some reason, I absolutely hate that "Walking in Memphis" song.
If this is indeed the genesis of rap, I'd have to agree with this:
