I was gonna list the bands that I loled at for being on that list... but it would probably be way easier to list the ones that don't make me lol. That list is awful.

JohnnyNemesis
05-31-2007, 09:57 AM
This list isn't about best, it's about the biggest, so I'm okay with seeing such horrible bands on the list. But how the fuck can Sublime be one of the biggest bands ever?! That...what? They had one huge album and a bunch of modest hits, but...what?! That shit makes no sense, and a lot of that list is full of bands that are relatively obscure these days even though they were huge in their time: Jane's Addiction, Live, Deftones, etc.

If you don't have staying power either in constantly making new hits or in being recognizable by even the most ignorant fans of the genre, you're most definitely not one of the biggest bands ever.

Llamas
05-31-2007, 10:00 AM
Good point. A lot of current bands shouldn't be on there, either, then. And Tiger Army? Big? Ummm...

JohnnyNemesis
05-31-2007, 10:03 AM
Exactly. Like, I realize that at their peak, the bands I mentioned earlier and others like Bush or The Cranberries were friggin' HUUUUUUUUUGE. I'm not taking that away from them. But now most people haven't even heard of them! It's crazy.

And TIGER ARMY? TIGER FUCKING ARMY?! I didn't even notice they were there! I love Tiger Army and my main beef is that up until a year or so ago they barely had a buzz even on the Internet!!! Them being on that list makes no sense whatsofuckingever.

mrconeman

This is why I don't bother thinking about these lists, or even reading them in full anymore.
Trying to put them into context is just a circle of logical fallacy.

By the way, did I just somehow not notice Led Zepelin, The Clash, Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, The Ramones, David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac, etc? Wow.

JohnnyNemesis
05-31-2007, 10:15 AM
The fact that they're not on the list makes me feel like I MUST be missing some sort of context here. Maybe a certain time period or whatever? Either way it's a ridiculous list, but hmm.

Thomas
05-31-2007, 10:23 AM
And whether you like them or not, The Beatles were the biggest band to ever exist. They didn't even make the list. I can't take it seriously.

i get what you mean but the only band on that list kroq plays is the ramones and they only play i wanna be sedated (im not including flashback lunch)

but kroq has the biggest 106.7 bands list every year im just glad offspring got so high this year being that offspring had not released anything new in 2006 or 2007 (yet)

Some bands have crazy voters. For example AFI.

People voted, here's the list. Complaining how this list sucks is not cool. Even if it was a perfect list, there still would be millions of people complaining...

I'm happy for the offspring! yay!

I listen to kroq occasionally. I remember voting for the offspring for something like that but a couple of years ago...is that made every year or what...

ps i thought afi would be higher because kroq played stuff from december underground like crazy miss murder was played like once an hour

Damn, some people are stupid. Yeah, it's a horrible list. But not because Red Hot Chili Peppers beat The Offspring, Red Hot Chili Peppers are HUGE. But because bands like The Beatles, Kiss, and Led Zeppelin don't beat them all.

Good for Offspring being #21, and lol why is dexandnoodles complaining about red hot chilli peppers being #1 and Offspring arent. lmao Red hot chilli peppers are possibly one of the biggest bands just now, if not, the biggest, as much as i dont like them i have to admit they are a fucking huge band.

StayInTheHouseCarl
05-31-2007, 10:54 PM
honestly, im surprised offspring got that high. dont get me wrong, i love the guys... but think about it.
the band hasn't really done all that much in 4 years... people forget about bands usually. but a reason why offspring still scored so high is because of the fact that they are a native so cal band, so people still vote for them.
thats why sublime scored so high, and peppers even higher. sublime might not be huge in other areas of the world, but they are still a BIG deal in LA. and the peppers need no explaination....they're the peppers. love em or hate em, they're still huge.

edit: i also love the high score social d got, by the way.

I realize that if this were a "best" list, it would be subject to the writer's opinion, but biggest? The Beatles were arguably #1, and inarguably in the Top 5. I mean, Christ, they didn't even make the list at ALL.

It says bands, so technically, solo artists shouldn't even be on it. But I was fairly certain that no one else has outsold the Beatles. Even if they had, I think they're still in the Top 5 (which is why I said they were arguably #1).

like i said long ago ( i think i argued with someone about this) its a list of the biggest bands played ON KROQ, voted by listeners...not the biggest bands ever.
Kroq doesnt play the beatles, or zepplin, etc, so theyre not on the list.

if it was supposed to be the biggest bands ever, and these bands werent on the list, i agree that would be completely retarded.

but as it stands, the list is what it is. kroq does it every year for some lame reason, and the top 10 or so bands changes on the popularity of those bands at the moment, not based on the bands impact on music.

This post perfectly sums up everything. Are people who flip their shit about shitty bands being listed with the Offspring idiots? Hell yes. But the list still doesn't make any goddamn sense. There are no recognizable criteria at all.

I personaly don't like them that much, they're not punk.
