    As it usually is with these lists, I'll never understand the ranking. "The Fly" at #1?? Nah, I wouldn't say so.

    And there's some notable ones they left off the list entirely.....

    I think The Fly ranks highly, but I would also include the following as higher:

    That is so comical. You cretins do realize the The Piss plays the same guitar riff on every song

    U2 is muzak for the terminal stupid too fucking lazy to appreciate music itself. While I have established time and time again that slave FORD is a bitter, divisive, uneducated bitter liberal who buys in to pseudo-left Puke Yuger propaganda it does not surprise me that he is a U2 sycophant. U2 is the the clump that hangs in the bottom of any white suburbia trashcan that you can't shake so you leave it there allowing for it to fester and thus become acceptable that the smell really isn't that bad no matter how many times Bono reshits in it. U2 is muzak for the fucktard bullied in high school who believes that wimp farts like the Edge actually have talent as they attend to their own humiliation and defeat. U2 is safe music that has been so watered down and recycled people feel sorry for you for listening to it. Whenever I have the misfortune of seeing a U2 fan I'm thinking: "Yeah, a terminal artard who is most likely a failed musician incel obese tube coil who masturbates to XBoX games in between their Dorito binging feast." In other words, U2 fans are sad, sad, displaced people who do not belong in society.

    Henry Rollins is the perfect example of a fucktard parody.

    No they don't. U2 is the most unfuckable band in the industry.

    The only thing worse than a U2 fan is a Led Zeppelin fan and the only thing worse than a Led Zeppelin fan is a Dave Matthews Band fan.


    And the only thing worse than a Dave Mathews Band fan is a Beach House fan.
