Hey Stupid!’s Greatest Bands of All Time

t will be your duty to listen to each of these before you die…or we’ll kill you. Anyone is welcome to make suggestions about the list, but more than likely I will disregard them because your tastes in music are not as good as ours. If you try and act like you are so cool and know super obscure bands that you only know because people cooler than you actually do listen to them I will track you down and rape your mother in front of you.

Once we have nominated all the bands we think deserve a shot they will be judged on 10 categories:

Influence-

Rockingness-

Inspiration-

Sexyness (playing a song from this band helps you get laid)-

Drunken Lullabye (songs you have to hear when drunk)-

Road trippin-

Look-

Originality-

Staying Power-

The Goosebumps-

Once they are judged, bands scoring below a 75 will be cut from the list. Keep in mind the finished list will have nothing to do with record sales or fads. Listed by each band or artist will be one album which you must listen to before you die.

Here we go.

The final all time definitive list of bad ass artists for you to listen too.
