So I was reading this list one day.

This is something I do normally, so I have statistics to back up my opinion when I discuss music or cinema with my friends.

It placed Tokio Hotel at the top of 500 bands.
Also in the top ten were Christina Aguilera, and Avril Lavigne.

The Beatles, were ranked all the way at number 60.
Zeppelin or Pink Floyd wasn't mentioned until at least 150.
Some people make me sick.

Yeah I remember seeing that. Quite funny.

Its all the young teenagers just voting for them. Technically its the best band in the eyes for teenagers maybe
#10
Well, I have to admit I was a little naive about this whole list. And to add on to whoever mentioned the teen population admiring, change that to 11 and 12 year old girls.

But still, opinions on Tokio Hotel?
also, somebody told me they werent asian at all, they were german.
#12
The thing about Tokio Hotel is they are the single most important and influential musical force in the entirety of history. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, that is more culturally important than the majesty, the tour de force that is Tokio Hotel. Anyone who says anything contrary to the FACT that Tokio Hotel are the only band of any importance ever is clearly an idiot because he or she is arguing with a proven fact.

I've never heard them, actually.

Off to youtube I go...

edit: I listened to Monsoon. I didn't see any reason why it should be hated so much.
Who dat?

Just kidding about Reel Big Fish, they suck.

Exactly. Bands that get more attention from the media are going to be most popular, obviously. The fact that they ranked Tokio Hotel so high doesn't really mean squat. I can't stand that band and I try to ignore statistics like this one.

Im glad. sig it or ill ****ing kill you.
#21
Personally, i don't hate them, i'd probably go as far as saying their music is listenable, atleast for me, but i'm not a devoted fan.. I see no reason for people to throw so much hate at Tokio Hotel, other than the way the try to immitate the steriotypical j-rock/pop dress sense.

ok, so let me get this strait. you have never heard any of Tokio Hotels stuff, and you still claim them to be the SINGLE IMPORTANT BAND TODAY?!! I don't get it. Are you messing with peoples heads or something? And there are some bands that are just equally important, and the rest are probably more. Everyone has their own right to their own opinion and all that, but I don't think that you can just go all "willy-nilly" and say stuff like there aren't any band that are important to anyone in the whole world other than Tokio Hotel. There were two threads that got closed because too many people were hating on them, so they might not be the single most important.

*EDIT* im not "flaming" you or whatever, I'm just wondering where you came up with that idea?

So I hope we can all get over the spewing hate caused by rich_sg's post.

Any other opinions on Tokio Hotel?
Or their shemale lead singer?
#38
So, the rest of the list contained some bull****.
But I thought the Tokio Hotel as first on the list was pretty ridiculous.
If anyone can find this list, I tried earlier and was unsuccessful, then post it or the link.
