Showing my ignorance of music of the last couple decades

Favorite band meme, from lifeofmendel, with a couple additions at the end

1. Nirvana- Some good stuff, but over hyped
2. Sublime- haven't heard enough
3. Depeche Mode- not bad, but i can't stand them
4. Linkin Park- not really
5. No Doubt- used to be awesome, one of my favorite bands. now ick
6. Rage Against the Machine- woo! loud
7. U2- mostly good
8. Green Day- excellent
9. Beastie Boys- dislike their music, but it's amusing
10. Red Hot Chili Peppers- before they popified themselves.
11. Blink-182- good, at least for the few songs i've heard
12. System of a Down- they've put out some really interesting bits of music. I'd like to hear more.
13. The Smashing Pumpkins- sometimes terrific, sometimes awful
14. Korn- Fun stuff
15. Bob Marley- I like, but sometimes i think any random reggae is even better
16. Metallica - damn sell-outs
17. The Offspring- i like playing lsjumb charts of offspring music
18. The Cure-ok
19. Incubus- haven't heard enough

22. Tool- haven't heard enough
23. Radiohead- great stuff. would like to hear more.
24. 311- haven't heard enough

I just looked at one sales site and you can now obtain this album for $8. Two CDs of excellent music. Hear my slightly-out-of-tune sax bits on the LSJUMB track as well as awesome musicians such as DMB and Jimmy Buffett and John Scofield
