Top 10 Butt-Rock Bands of All Time


4. Thirty Seconds to Mars
There is no way that Jared Leto could be the lead singer of a band that was anything other than butt-rock. Thirty Seconds To Mars is totally butt-rock, but we like them, so shut up. Keep on with the butt-rock, Jordan Catalano. It's you, through and through.


3. Stone Sour
Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor's song "Bother" was featured on the Spider-Man soundtrack in '02, just like their butt-rock bretheren Chad Kroeger and Josie Scott's song "Hero" was. They've toured with Chevelle and share a couple of members with Slipknot, a band that often verges on butt-rock. Basically, everything about Stone Sour is butt-rockish, but at least they're one of the better examples of this genre, right?


2. Seether
Remember how much Seether front man Shaun Morgan dislikes his former amour Amy Lee? It's so much that he's written some pissy songs about her, and that alone gets him and his band the No. 2 spot. Any band that can own their post-breakup angst in such a public way is awesome.


1. Shinedown
Listen, we are well aware that Shinedown is responsible for that horrible "barrel of a 45" song, officially titled "45." But the thing is, even after that hot mess they're our favorite because they went and did this little Lynyrd Skynyrd cover, which is so insane that they've forever been absolved of any butt-rock sins.

Very rarely does a cover even close to touching the original song, but we dare say Shinedown's version of "Simple Man" is better than the original. And we like Skynyrd's version a whole lot, but we're still not sorry.
