We Demand A Recount

New York City rock station KROCK 92.3 recently announced its listener-voted list of The 92 Greatest Bands Of All Time. U2 are number 17, behind such luminaries as… Incubus. *nervous cough*

  1. That is the worst list i’ve ever seen! Whats with Moby w/ Gwen Stefani?? They only did one song together and they are one of the best bands of all time?? Ouch.

  5. I don’t think there’s a problem. It’s obvious that they’re a heavy rock-based publication – that’s why Nirvana and Red Hot Chilli Peppers are top. If Kerrang (UK-based rock/metal mag) placed U2 at 17, I’d be chuffed.

  7. Obviously a loser program director with nothing to do but display his ignorance. He will reap what he has “shone”.

  9. consider the source, my friends,consider the source. And if the lads can’t be number 1, nirvana is okay with me. Considering this list, it’s amazing they are on there at all….

  11. Well, we should have known Incubus would place high when they did that record-breaking, sold-out tour of the US, became America’s adopted shamans of healing post-9/11, headlined the Super Bowl, and had their lead singer on the cover of Time. I mean what do you expect.

  13. Oh come on people. Listen to what Fiona and I said earlier. It’s a heavy rock magazine. Would you expect U2 to come first in classical music polls? Huh? No, you don’t. So stop your moaning and be happy.

  15. You shouldn’t complain. That meaning U2 is less popular can be translated into better chances to get good tickets for their shows, you must see the bright side on things 🙂

  17. Benisdumb: Nice to see you have the courage to write derogatory stuff under your own name and e-mail address. Why not listen to my point, rather than nit-pick. You nit-picking moo child.

  19. This is just way too funny…why does everyone think U2 should be the top of EVERY damn best-band list going…relax, we all know they are number one so it doesn’t matter what these people listening to some hard rock station (that should say something right there) in the states think…and of course, Vox always comes in with the comic-relief!… hehehe…Just enjoy U2 for who they are and what they do and don’t get all wound up over some little list where U2 just happened to not be at the top of…

  21. Chris speaketh wise words; I’d rather we didn’t get the talk-back posts revoked yet again (I think we all remember LAST time.)

    But unfortunately, I wouldnt feel right if I didn’t just mention–is it me, or are Creed a) not hard rock and b) just about the most suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked?

  23. I agree with John — just as long as they’re number one to us it doesn’t really matter what others think, does it? 😉 U2 will always be numero uno in my top 92 list! Yay!

  25. Guns N’ Roses really suck, so why are they in the list? The top TEN even? Aren’t they, like, totally nineteen ninty one….? 😉

  27. am I that old that the Stones don’t make it onto a list of best bands ever…
    Huge U2 fan here, but is there anyone better than the Beatles?

  29. You have to admit – the list is so absurd its laughable. Who could possibly have concocted it with a straight face? The fact that U2 is not #1 is actually a relief! Imagine that dubious honor!!!

  31. U2 is 17? REM is 58??? What The…?
    KROCK – how appropriate.

    BTW, Ben – “You nit-picking moo child.” Funny stuff. LOL.

  33. I wouldn’t take this to heart kiddies. It’s more a shlock-rock list. The people who wrote this obviously have mullets. U2 fans don’t have mullets so therefore they must be referring to the U2 pre 84/85. Oh and Bon Jovi are ONLY 91!! I also demand a recount dammit!!!
