Not only the worst band but also the worst person.

Who/what is Green Day?
 
2012-09-14 03:41:17 PM  
Ok, I'm not sticking up for Bon Jovi, but the worst band EVER?? Bullshiat.
 
2012-09-14 03:42:47 PM  
I wouldn't say the worst band since I've seen and/or heard many far shiatier bands. I can't understand how in the world they made it so big though.

Yes. But they're far from the shiattiest band ever. Not even the shiattiest of their era. That honour goes to Nelson.

You're right. I came of age in the 80s, of course I didn't like a lot of 80s music back in the day. As time passed I developed a taste for a lot of it, but never Bon Jovi.

Two words: Cougar Bait. They made the conscious decision around '94 to stop being a hair band and cater to whichever direction pop rock went, and they already had the base of girls who had been following them since Slippery When Wet. Said girls are now approaching cougar age, if not there already, and still follow JBJ's ass around religiously (and sometimes literally).

I only like Bon Jovi'shiats, but I still wouldn't classify them as being bad, much less being the worst.

I am loathe to pick a worst. Just because I don't like something doesn't make it shiatty. But if I were forced to pick something as worst, it would almost certainly go to one of the cookie monster metal bands. The ones where they play so fast and jagged that it's basically nothing but odd meter noise.

I'm not sure why any band feels the need to dump on other bands It's just stupid.

You're close, but I really think I have to give the nod to Winger.

Stupid. Green day is classic punk, Bon Jovi is heavy metal. It's pointless to even compare them.

Oh yeah? Well San Francisco's "Bum Jovi" is even worse.

Usually I think the filter is lame, but every now and again it does something like this and totally redeems itself.

Uh, he said Bon Jovi are the worst band they ever played the stage with. Bon Jovi could be assholes for all we know IRL.


With that being said, the guys in Green Day are really showing their age and they look funny in their punk getups. Like some guys on Halloween dressing up as punk rockers. Plus I heard their last radio release, and the song was really lame.

I think you like things the more you dont hear them everywhere, my parents loved country in the 80s and I hated it, now I like old country music.

And I have given up trying to figure out why people enjoy shiatty music, I first started giving up with american idol, then when glee came out and set sales records I finally admitted people's tastes have gone to shiat.
 
2012-09-14 09:01:52 PM  
Read the article, he said the worst band they toured with and he was not even talking about the music.

Dookie is a decent album

Bon Jovi, Foreigner and Journey: the triumvirate of horrible '80s music that "classic rock" stations blare incessantly.

And Green Day sucks too. Or at least, I hate the lead singer's voice.

Finally, someone who appreciates my loathing of Foreigner.

In the '80's Bon Jovi,it was all over the radio,same song twice in an hour.
I hated Bon Jovi,still do.Thats just my opinion.Same with Springsteen.

/ john bon jovi seems like a cool dude.

Oh love is pretty awful. Some of the songs other songs that have been leaked have super repetitive choruses (Three albums in one year? Who thought that was a good idea?) but there are some awesome ones they've come up with. Kill the DJ is pretty good

You DO realize that you're addressing the Great and Powerful Pocket Ninja, right? He is (and I honestly say this with no sarcasm) one of Fark's greatest treasures.

What business does that no-talent little bastard have calling anyone the worst ever? Green Day is the worst ever by default. I thought he lost his voice anyway? He needs to lose it again.
 
2012-09-14 09:22:36 PM  
Oh, on topic: Both Green Day and Bon Jovi have recorded some decent catchy songs. Neither band is a "favorite" of mine, but I don't change the radio station when they're on. Sometimes I even sing along.

no...no they don't. They're just 40 year olds rockin eyeliner...not rock...just shiat.
 
2012-09-14 09:34:33 PM  
Try reading the article trollmitard. He said Bon Jovi was the worst band they toured with.

Since it's pretty much apples to oranges comparing the two bands and their fan base so this statement is hardly inflammatory nor surprising.
