Blender is actually a great mag. In my opinion it's the best 'widely-available' music magazine and while I don't always agree with everything they write (in fact I disagree with a couple on the list) I've found the magazine invaluable for leads on new bands. The Libertines are a great example, I never would have checked them out if not for the great review they got in Blender. I think it's well written and very humorous. I'd urge anyone to pick up a copy of it and read through (especially readers of Maxim mag).

By the way I am not a subscriber, but may as well be - I've been buying the mag since issue 1.

bigjohn: Yup Bruce is back with them. I saw them last summer with Dio and Motorhead. 8 rows from the stage. First time i had seen them since the early 90's.

Fair enough, I will consider this list business to be filler for an otherwise good magazine. As I don't read it I really have no idea, but I definately believe a good magazine can have periodically bad articles.

they always throw lists in there, some are more humorous than useful. Last month they had the 50 craziest musicians ever (gold star to the first person to guess who was #1). They've had plenty of useful ones though, like the top American cds of all time, the top albums of the year, etc. They are always the first to admit that the list is just their opinions and they are pretty good a printing the flak they get from readers over inclusion/omission of certain names.

My vote goes to Michael Jackson. I could name a whole slew that deserve to be on that list though.

If it wasn't for the rest of the band Sid should have made it. The guy didn't have a clue how to play his instrument and they brought in session bassist to take over for him when they recorded Nevermind the Bollocks. Ahhh, but he wasn't about the music.

I've seen this list before on another forum and I just cringe when I read through the list. I agree with John and no "pop culture" magazine has even a micrometer worth of musical credibility to say what they think is "the worst music". For example, in the 90's Les Claypool (from Primus) was hailed by MTV (when they actually cared about music) as one of the best bassists in the world. So how does that make them one of the "worst". I can actually agree with most of those on the list but as a die hard prog rock fan, I get sickly offended to see some of the most talented musicians bashed by these "music" critics. I really wonder what they feel is the "best 50". Oh and if you guys think this list is bad, find the "Top 100 guitarists" list (i can't remember which guitar magazine wrote it). It's another list that makes you wonder what the "critics" are thinking. [/rant made]

I am operating under the assumption that this particular list was directed at live performances. Regardless though I still agree that Primus for one has no place on here.
