Milli Vanilli didn't make the list? That's a shock!
(I'm surprised 5ive, N'Sync, etc. didn't make it either!)

I don't think Milli Vanilli can be classified as a real artist! lol.

the "real" singers did release an album as "The Real Milli Vanilli" though.. but it went nowhere. Still, I don't think you can count many untalented dorks as real artists either.. look at the popstars phenomenon and boy/girl manufactured bands, etc. Milli Vanilli were just a mere extension (even to the singing, not just computer enhancements) of that philosophy!

Exactly. What in the world are the other aforementioned artists doing on a list beside them?

Yeah...Live is a surprise.

From the article: The Doors were named at number 37, with the magazine criticising singer Jim Morrison for inflicting his "terminally adolescent views on the wider world".


Meh...who knows. Its not my list. :P

Never.

But it's always interesting to see what other people think.

I've gotta agree with you there. While most of those listed are justifiably terrible, one of the lower numbers is one of my favorites ever.

Eh, to each their own I suppose. At least U2's not on there.

And, I should add, I don't mean Tin Machine. As much as I love David Bowie, Tin Machine more than belongs on that list.

I was afraid that U2 was going to be on the list beyond the cut. You scared me!

Yngwie Malmsteen, Mr. God of Neo-Classical himself? I hope they're referring to his attempts to be poppy...

I know it shouldn't be taken too seriously (Kansas, The Doors, other classics), but i'm not sure what columns like these attempt to accomplish...

Yeah, that list is fairly stupid overall. Seriously, who cares what the 50 worst artists are in the first place? That's just Blender wanting to seem cool by being mean. And, guys, the bad karma seems to be kicking your ass...not many people read your magazine as is. *Might* wanna focus on the positive instead.
