It came and went on May 22--and I didn't even know. Perhaps all of us who missed it can celebrate belatedly with this list of essential Goth songs provided by The Huffington Post. It begins properly with this.

It's hard to argue with anything on this list from AntiQuiet, but I've got a nagging feeling that something is missing. Any ideas?
Rolling Stone recently did a poll where they named their readers listed the worst bands of the 90's and quite frankly... what were these readers smoking?
Dave Mathews Band? Nirvana? I'm not huge fans of either but I thought to myself "There has to be worse out there than these guys.... isn't there?" This set me upon my quest for the week. Using the internet, facebook and a number of class mates from Bradford District High School's graduating classes of 97, 98, and 99, I put together a much worse list of bands. There are a few duplications (there is some crap that is bound to make everyone's list) but on a whole, I think I dredged a little deeper into the bowels of the 90's to give you a true Top Ten Worst Bands Of The 90's.
10) Crazy Town
The closing days of the 90's gave us possibly one of the worst rap / metal... things. Crazy Town were annoying, not particularly talented or original, they kind of sounded like the stupid love child of a drunk boinking between Limp Bizkit and Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Yet despite their obvious suckage, they somehow managed to sell 2.5 MILLION copies of their debut album The Gift of Game.
Normally I hate puns. Yet for some inexplicable reason, I do enjoy a clever turn of phrase when it comes to names of tribute bands.
For example, a recent Q Magazine listed these actual tribute band name:
- Faux Fighters (featuring Dave Growl, Naylor Falkins, Pap Smear, Chris Shitlips and Nate Mansmell)
- Shania Twin
- Pink Fraud
- Maybe Gaga
- Cheap Purple
- And my favourite, Jamirrorquai.
Anyone have anything else to the list?
