there's some band w/a female singer, they have like a 5-letter name, been at it forever (i'd say at least 15 years) & have still played fairly recently, but can't recall the name to save my ass... the singing is mostly this obnoxious atonal whining thing... anyone know who i mean?

i seem to recall Aunt Helen being pretty awful... i'll think of some others...

You can tell us this but Never Tell an Angel That Your Heart's On Fire...

What's wrong with you people?

SORRY - really? you fuckers must have never seen them live

BOSTON - classic rock from the roots on up, but played with a lot of heart.

NEW EDITION - okay, maybe BELL BIV DEVOE showed what they really could do.

STOMPERS - Sal Baglio *still* rawks harder then most

BLAKE BABIES - are you freaking crazy?

G LOVE and SPECIAL SAUCE - my ears hear something different my friend.

NEW MAN - saw them at the Channel, they were okay, far from "worst"

STOCKLAN - ya gotta admire them for stickering prowess alone.

I know I shouldn't get worked up over a parody thread, but c'mon - there is SO MUCH WORSE music out there than ANY band mentioned here.

my list -

Count Viglione (I respect his producing skillz though, embararssing to watch on stage with a cape and stick)

G.G. ALLIN (I respect his viewpoint (even though it led directly to his own death), but the music and songs sucked. Mostly.)

DOUBLE TROUBLE - I have never heard them but saw a poster for this duo in a pub in Dorchester last week.....VERY lame to name your band the same name as another band.

DOC NANCY - can't take more than 2 minutes of

whatever band that had Chip Z'Nuff - ENUFF Z'NUFF???

hair metal bands from anywhere unless they take the music in a unique direction but by definition usually don't.

Enuff Z'Nuff were from Chicago. "Fly High Michelle" is genius.

"Chip" hung out in Boston for awhile in the early Nineties(Late 80's?) and he was creepy.

The sax player, Bob Gay.

Management told him that no one would take someone named "gay" seriously, so he changed his name to "Robert Homosexual".

He's on RKO, late night--when people say "I like Savage Homosexual", that's what they mean, man.
woof.

Til Tuesday: god I hate that woman's vocal stylings.
Orchestra Luna: I never heard this 70s band live...just the record. One of the worst records I have ever heard.
3 through 5:
Any band consisting of a bunch of recent Berklee graduates who are condescending to do a set of rock, even though it's slumming for them. Lots of solos.
Richard Weed
Bands that drove me to the Pizza Pad:
Harlequin
Loners
Zodio Doze
Dangerous Birds
Limbo Race

Can't say they were the worst, just didn't like their music....

Helium? (I liked 'em when Dunton was in the band, the edition with that kid Ash on bass was horrible live)

I think "Hate Your Friends" and "Creator" are great records, Dando's songs as well as Deilly's.

if you remember an old european band called Bless (but w/a guy singer), they sounded kinda like that...
tight & all that, but the vocals could clear the room...

Orchestra Luna: I never heard this 70s band live...just the record. One of the worst records I have ever heard.
I got dragged to see them in the middle of nowhere (The Rusty Nail in Sunderland, since burned down) by friends with whom I usually shared tastes. After an hour or so of awful Broadway rock, they announced that they would be back after a short break and play for two more hours! I walked up and down the country road where the club was located for quite a while...
coughlin
never saw orchestra luna, but luna (prior) was PISSA, i swear, kinda decadent glam-punk w/great songs...
i still got their single Hollywood (or Hooray For Hollywood)
(w/rick berlin, of course, not that later luna)
don't think i ever saw berlin airlift, either...
kogar the swingin ape
since when was GG from boston?

i actually wish he WAS from boston so every fucking little punk kid in nh, who wasn't even alive when he was around, would just shut the fuck up about the guy!

Who said he was from Boston? A legend is a legend.

Harlequin was pretty fucking awful.

The Lemonheads were extraordinarily sloppy in live performance.

Even the Lyres were wretched when Monoman was having an off night. I remember a Halloween 1986 show at T.T.s that was pretty terrible.

On the other hand, I've never seen a bad show by Big Dipper, or the Pixies (in their original incarnation), or the Volcano Suns.

And one of the best sets I've ever seen was the Neighborhoods in 1987.

never saw the Lemonheads live. Saw them in the studio.
Absolutely horrible and obnoxious, made worse by the fact that they thought they were great.

absolutely incorrect, sir, it's obviously their style you don't like... & fine, but for what they did, they hardly sucked at it...
