There are a number of bands on their list that shouldn't even have had a hit with their brand of suck they called music, while there are a few that shouldn't be on this list whatsoever.  Take Queensryche for example.  They get labeled as a One Hit Wonder of the 90's for Silent Lucidity.  Never mind their hits before then, or the fact that Empire, Jet City Woman & Another Rainy Night (Without You), all off the Empire album, all received a lot of airplay over both radio and MTV.  Heck, even Anybody Listening? got airplay.

How did Queensryche get lumped in as Grunge/Alternative Rock anyway?  No wonder crappy music is king.

Completely bogus to have Queensryche on that list at all.  The song was from a melodic hard rock/metal album (years before they dabbled lightly in the alternative/grunge scene).  They also had several other songs that charted.  According to Wikipedia the song "Silent Lucidity" was #1 in the U.S. Rock Charts, but "Real World" & "Sign of the Times" both made it to #3 with at least another dozen songs in the top 100.

Wow..out of 20 bands I have only heard of 9 of them... And Queensryche? I thought they had several hits in the 90s and beyond... I noticed Candlebox on the list..I thought they were Huge back in The 90s? And Blind Melon? I thought they were Huge also..

Candlebox shouldn't be on the list either.

They didn't even include Whale (Hobo Humpin' Slobo Babe) or Chumbawamba (Tubthumping).
