You can probably guess from my name that I'm a bit biased
I can’t take the science or the “algorithm “ (not much of one) too seriously, but I don’t mind seeing NB at number 1.Best Life magazine has scientifically ranked the Most Hated Rock Bands of All Time using an easy-to-understand algorithm based on a sound analytical, mathematical results. In part, bands are ranked based on whether they appear on several popular "hated band" rankings. Here are the stats on Linkin Park (RIP):
LA Weekly's worst bands: N/A
Vice's worst musicians: No
Ultimate Guitar's worst bands: N/A
Ranker's most overrated artists:N/A
Ranker's worst rock bands: 325
Hated Band Index: 0.00
With that explanation, here's a ranking you have to respect for the solid science behind it:
(* Vistalite Black has seen this band live. ^ Vistalite Black fully agrees with ranking).

There's a reason you need to be dosed to listen to them.Agreed on Grateful Dead...
I heard a live version of GOING DOWN THE ROAD" on American Routes just last week... sounded like a very sloppy bar band. The Vocals were just atrocious.
I grew up in that era, and my older brother had the first GD album but I never "got" them. Conversely, I bought the first QUICKSILVER album and the JEFFERSON AIRPLANE "Pillow" and 'Crown" albums and loved 'em!
