10 Bands So Bad You Forgot About Them

7. Metro Station
This forgotten bandmance has literally nothing to do with the fact that Trace Cyrus, Miley's brother, was in Metro Station. In fact, they were so forgettable that we totally even forgot he was in the band until we started resurrecting old Metro Station videos for this blog. But when the most interesting thing about your band is Trace Cyrus, and yet we still forget that whole collaboration even existed, you're screwed.

6. Candlebox
This band sucked so much that we're a wee bit sorry about resurrecting them from their musical grave, honestly. Remember when they played shows with other awful bands like Hinder and Godsmack? That only upped their lack of street cred to a whopping nil. We're glad we've basically forgotten them. Our brains are a happy place without the infiltration of Candlebox.

(Side note: We're definitely regretting the fact that we left Hinder off this list now that we're remembering that whole thing. They sucked bad, too.)

5. Chumbawamba
Contrary to the popular opinion in this office, I personally feel that Chumbawamba has always sucked in an epic way, and therefore would have placed them much lower. However, the rest of editorial finds them tolerable, and perhaps even a bit "cute when they started out as anarcho-punks," so they're on middle ground here.

Either way, whether they started out horribly or ultimately just went to shit, they're completely forgettable at this point.

4. Panic! At the Disco
Man, you really can measure a band's pure amount of suck by the unnecessary punctuation, can't you? They chimed in with "haven't you people ever heard of / closing the goddamn door," a pseudo-goth persona, and way too much Fall Out Boy for our taste, and then quickly exited our memories. But Panic! is still at it, and yet we somehow still forget they exist.

List continues on the next page.

Silverchair does not belong on this list. Underrated band. First three albums were great. They were only 15 when Frogstomp came out and they still owned bands full of grown men.

These kinds of lists are better in person, coming from some stupid asshole you can walk away from, not from a writer paid to create thought-provoking articles.

HP once called Panic at the Disco "talented hook and songwriters".

Well I guess I am too old for the demographics of the Houston Press now. All these bands are from the 90s I believe? That was SUCH a long time ago.

Alien ant farm actually had some great music should not be on the list, it kinda backfired that their breakout hit was a cover...neither should silverchair. Neon ballroom was a great album. I feel like this list was slopped together and not properly researched.

So happy that I've only ever even heard of one of these outfits. Pop music = (essentially) disposable music. Ear toilet paper.

I know this is subjective and all, but I will stand up for Alien Ant Farm here. Come on.

Ha, Alien Ant Farm, I think they played in Houston about a year or so ago. I am sure they will be like Filter and in 5 years (or this year), will be playing at bars in the suburbs to people who don't even know who they are/were.
