This is a question Worst Band Ever

If I was in charge of the B3ta fatwa department, we wouldn't be hearing too much from Simply Red in the future. Who's on your musical shit list and why?

Dancing in The Moonlight is just a truly horrendous song. And the guy looks like that curly haired, lisping wanker from Jonathan Creek.

That's the UK punk band "AntiProduct", not to be confused with the hyphenated hardcore punk band "Anti-Product" of American origin.

I've seen them twice, once supporting The Wildhearts in London and again at an Ozzfest up at Donnington.

They're truly awful. The music is terrible, they put on bad shows both times and they wear glow in the dark make-up.

At the London gig the singer flopped his tallywhacker out and pissed on a speaker. They can't even be edgy properly, it just put everyone in mind of Neil from The Young Ones.

Pheeeooooh! They stink.

'Inter MeNan'.....
My younger brother's band circa 1992.

'Inter MeNan' were the Punk/Metal band equivalent of one of those deluded, mentally unstable and ultimately talentless fat Northern kids you get turning up in the audition stages of the X-Factor.
They saw themselves as spiritual peers of Nirvana, Guns & Roses, Metallica etc but were in reality a bunch of scruffy estate kids with Argos instruments, an attitude problem the size of a small industrialised country -and an overblown ego to match.
Somehow they managed to convince our school to let them play a series of concerts during lunch breaks-ostensibly to raise money for charity (they had the nerve to charge 20p entrance)and, due to that sort of thing never having happened before at school, there was quite a buzz about the big 'event'.
However the big event turned into a predictable farce when on striding confidently onstage and attempting to recreate Metallica's masterpiece 'Enter Sandman' their assembled fellow students discovered that InterMeNan weren't the 'new Ayatollahs of Rock n Rolla'-as their childishly written posters proclaimed and in fact couldn't keep time.... or really play any chords......or sing.
Much cat calling and piss taking ensued resulting in a sizeable scuffle and my brother head butting someone & breaking their nose....
However-not to be put off by the ridicule and a couple of lengthy suspensions from school, the band decided to re-group and perform a 'comeback' at our local youth club..a bad enough idea on its own but by this time the band had discovered the work of the Macc Lads and were intent on emulating their newly found idols musical 'direction'. On the day of the comeback the band got as far as announcing 'this is a new song you poofs..its called Coons go to Wog Town' before the PA was switched off, chairs were thrown, windows broken and the police were called. And that was that for Inter MeNan

If they'd been deluded enough to actually record something it'd probably be on sale in twats shops like Urban Outfitters, where smirking posho hipsters could ironically buy their CDs and then (hopefully) never play them.

Not only the most god-awful meat and two vegetables dad rock imaginable, but somehow they poisoned the whole British music scene in the 1990s. I'm pretty sure it was Mr. Agreeable in the Meloday Maker who said that The Beautiful South were "the dead pigeon in the cold water tank of British pop", a wonderful description of the toxicity and corrupting nature of some bands.

Also Julie Burchill used to really like Oasis. QED.

I saw "Chicks on Speed" once at Hyde Park
They were supporting Red Hot Chilli Peppers and James Brown.

To set the scene it was a hot as fuck day, they were on 2 hours late and people were generally sick of waiting.

Also it was EXPENSIVE for a ticket. Then this mish mosh of crap came on.

Their slogan? "WE DONT PLAY GUITARS" yes congrats... but erm...

It was like someone entered a freestyle art contest and wasnt quite upto the standard of Red Hot Chilli Peppers or JAMES FREAKING BROWN

Anyway heres a movie i took of them by the 2nd song. I still laugh to this day

My favourite ever band review:

"For forty minutes straight they set your balls on fire and watch as your writhe in pain while they laugh and perform unnecessary surgery on the rest of your body."

And this was a GOOD review - 5 stars

It was for The White Mice. Never heard (of) them, myself.

On the first page...
...there's a story about an open mic night at the Talking Heads bar in Southampton. Funny enough, my 'worst band' were a band we were the support act for a couple of years ago at said bar.


I know there are people out there who love these guys. Fair enough to you. However, having met them in person/played with them, I can confidently say that they are utter felch-badgers.

To start with, every band, including them, was supposed to have a 15 minute sound check slot. They not only showed up late, but took 45 frakking minutes to minutely adjust their instruments that only dogs with good hearing could notice. The end result of this? We got a half-a-song sound check before we were told to stop, meaning we couldnt hear each other through the monitors at all during our set.

Before all that, our drummer had called and spoken to their drummer beforehand, to arrange a kit share. To those not musically inclined out there, for smaller gigs with a number of bands on, typically all the bands will use a drum kit from one band, changing only minor bits such as say, a snare drum, or symbols. Godsized had agreed to do this for everyone - huzzah say we. When they show up, they basically say 'no. our drummer has set his kit up correctly. no one is touching it now', meaning all the other acts (us included) had to frantically search for a new drum kit an hour before the gig (luckily found one to use).

Thirdly - completely unprofessional. In fact, the MOST unprofessional band I've had the displeasure of working with. On these kind of nights, the bands will always intermingle, share a few pints and laughs, watch each others acts (for the most part) and make a good night of it. Not Godsized. They refused to talk to anyone, and sat in a corner, scowling at anyone who wasn't them. They just thought they were the puppy's privates. We'd played with some bigger acts, such as Electric Eel Shock, who were fucking ace guys, chanting to your songs from the side of the stage.

Finally, the music. My. Sweet. Zombie. Jesus. It wasn't just that they wanted to be Zakk Wylde/Black Label Society musically. That was painfully obvious in the 'every-tune-sounds-the-same' kind of way. No, they went the whole hog - long blonde hair and beards, all playing Zakk Wylde signature buzzsaw Gibson's. All Marshall stacks. Even the singer/lead guitarist was doing his best Zakk impression.

Mind you, for comical value, facking brilliant - the lead singer would put on his most americanised ZW accent during his vocals, but when talking to the crowd he was brummier than the river Rea. Bloody classic. That and when they played, everyone but one drunk middle aged tramp who'd wandered in for warmth had left by the end.

Length? 10 minutes of badly played, pinch-harmonic filled wah guitar solos too long

Travis being the perfect example... Turn, turn, turn, turn

Vampire Weekend
Don't think I've seen anyone mention them here so far, but I can't be the only one who dislikes them.

The singer's voice is really grating, the tune, if you can call it that, seems to be pretty much the same on every track I've heard, with the seemingly obligatory plinky-plunky guitar bit in the middle, which sounds like it's played by a nine year old practicing for their grade three exam. Amazingly though, it seems that Radio 1 think they're the best thing since sliced bread and laud them as musical geniuses. I just want to hit them in their faces. Hard.

There's a lot of aggression here.
Along with (dare I say) a bit of musical snobbery. How about this- is anyone brave enough to name a favourite artist/group? And then people can say in the replies why they don't like them?

I'll start- Frank Turner, and Gogol Bordello are two of my favourites.

Oh God,
I just remembered going to Edinb3ta many, many moons ago and going to Whistle Binkys (I think thats what is was called) and seeing a guy do the most horribly inappropriate acoustic renditions of songs.

I'm all for stripping back songs to play on your own with acoustic backing but some songs you just shouldn't try and do.

Hence why this one chap was looking out at about 20 drunken B3tans pissing their sides laughing as he screamed "FUCK YOU I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME!!!", to what can only be described as lovely acoustic accompaniment.

If Mystery Bob is around, he'll remember what I'm talking about.

Made some good records pre 1958, a lot of shit films until 1968, recorded a couple of good songs, then a load of shit songs and died a sad, fat, drug addled constipated joke on the khazi with a concrete turd like a torpedo stretching his flabbly brown star, so he resembled a particularly unpleasent babies rattle.

Dexy's Midnight Runners ARE ACE
I've been racking my brains since this question started last week, and failed to think of anyone that really, really deserves both barrels.
After all, there is a lot of shit out there, so hard to really pick one.

But the comment about student nights and Whigfield reminded me of my own student disco night hell... Come on Eileen. Along with the 'dance' that went with it. I hated it then, I hate it now, I will hate it to the end of time.

To rye ay? Fuck you Kevin Rowland, Fuck you.

I forgot about this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Ao9p3ou7-U

Before the days of wardrobe malfunctions (and no, Kev's dungaree 'n neckerchief look doesn't strictly count), you'd have background malfunctions. Any band that would still take the stage despite such a massive misuderstanding still not being fixed - is alright with me.

Gaga wouldn't do it. Go Kev!
