but surely all sense of opinion would say that elliot minor do not deserve to be in the top 5 ever

Wow that's really surprising. I expected some decent non mainstream music to be in the top 100 as Kerrang is really really good.

The top 100 is what people voted for, if they believe that Elliot Minor should be number 1 that's their opinion.

They are voting for what they like.
I'm not sure what you like, but say you like Pink Floyd and Pink Floyd made it to number 1. People will be going Pink Floyd don't deserve to be number 1 Metallica do.
It's just personal taste.

i believe it was called 100 best rock bands "EVER"
what the hell is with all this emo crap and teen rock dirt doing up so high.
i have a petty hate for ac/dc but they should be top 5.
along with the likes of led zeppelin and iron maiden.
those are the real classics that inspired

Well what do you expect from a channel that claims to be hard rock and metal yet favours Nickelback and MCR over Slayer and Black Sabbath? I just listen to my albums.

You see there are these things called opinions and people tend to have different ones...

Every time I flick over to Kerrang!, there's some crappy band on with their latest crappy song. Its called pop music, people vote for what they like at the time. You think anyone who voted for Elliot Minor has ever picked up an AC/DC, Iron Maiden or Metallica record? I think not.

OPINION. OPINION. OPINION. OPINION.

All these lists are are popular opinion polls

The most popular current bands are bound to get the most votes

Especially considering Kerrangs target audience

I don't own any Maiden or AC/DC albums, does that mean my opinion is invalid?

You're right. It's just wrong. How DARE Kerrang dishonor Paramore like that. They should be #3. I'm calling the wahmbulence!

oh... THAT guy
04-17-2008, 12:45 PM
The worst thing was that Th Rasmus beat Led Zeppelin.
There is no way it should be called '100 Best Rock Bands Ever' but rather it should be called '100 Most Popular Rock bands At The Moment.'

GiantRaven
04-17-2008, 12:45 PM
Is the list anywhere online? I wanna see it...

Once again I would like to say to consider the average Kerrang reader

Chances are they're a 15 year old scene kid who doesn't listen to Led Zeppelin

Yes, because that was what my post said.
/sarcasm

Actually, come to think of it, it kind of does in way :P.
Unless you've listened to every song from every rock band, you're in no position whatsoever to make a valid statement about who is better than anyone else, be it opinion or not.

These top whatever lists are made by a person, or a group of people that think they have the right to rate music on a scale. To even subject bands to being rated is an outrage.

yea i agree that the title should be changed and i also respect peoples opinions but i think its very closed minded that people are ignoring the 'TRUE' best bands ever...
the bands that sold millions of records and have been doing shows for soo many years.
but bands that have been out for two years get the top spots

*raises Eyebrow* I knew there was a perfectly Valid reason I never watch that channel unless I have to... Also to do with the fact I found it tragically amusing they pixellate out Cigarettes. On a rock TV channel, of all things... :haha That's just a little bit ironic, don't you think?

but what if i mentioned Pinkly Smooth, much fewer people would know who they were.

Yet personally I think Pinkly Smooth are a much better band than Aerosmith...

There is no such thing as a 'true' best band. I mean hell, MCR came first...I bet a lot of people would instantly recognise them...but they don't count because they're a newer band?

i aint a fan of MCR and i dont think they should have been number BUT in a couple of years after a few more album releases when they really proved themselves then i could say that they deserve it

Its a list voted for by the general population who voted for the bands they liked the most. How can you say that any form of 'deserving it' comes into things?

I think that once a band has established themselves as a timeless act rather than a bandwaggoner, then they should be in a Greatest bands list. Like Hendrix pioneered a genre, and so did Zeppelin, Sabbath, etc. and it's because young-ish people can still listen to and enjoy something made 40 years ago that makes them a great band.
