10 Bands So Bad You Forgot About Them

3. Alien Ant Farm
Both the dumbest episode of MTV's Cribs and the worst Michael Jackson cover ever were brought to you by Alien Ant Farm all those years ago. Seriously. These guys royally sucked. We'd tell you what else they sang, but we flat-out can't remember. We would Google it, but we don't want anyone to pull up our search history and laugh at us.


2. Sum 41
We may have purposely willed ourselves into forgetfulness about Sum 41, because Deryck Whibley and company were just that awful. That whole All Killer, No Filler album was anything but.

They basically borrowed from every subpar punk-pop band during that time, and yet still managed to get the formula all wrong, bordering on super-sucking. We're sure it didn't help that Whibley married the ever-annoying Avril Lavigne, but still. They were totally recycled, and for that we're thankful because until now, we'd forgotten that they were once a thing.


1. Eve 6
If there are indeed levels of hell, you can almost guarantee that Eve 6 is the theme music to at least one of them, where your tender heart will inevitably be put in a blender while you are forced to listen to this sucky music. Remember that awful song?

We're glad it was just one rendezvous until we were through with you, Eve 6. For real. We liked you buried in obscurity, and will be promptly putting you back there immediately.

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.

so we've moved from shooting fish in a barrel to shooting fish in a shotglass?

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.

There is bad music in every generation... pointless to write about it....

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.
