LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Limp Bizkit, which suffered slow sales of its long-awaited new album, has been named worst band of the year by readers of Guitar World magazine.

Creed, another act that draws sharp reactions, came in at No. 2 even though the Christian combo took the year off. New York rockers the Strokes were No. 3, followed by "all pop-punk bands" at No. 4 and pop-punk band Good Charlotte at No. 5.

Limp Bizkit's "Results May Vary" has sold one million copies after 13 weeks, and ranks No. 64 on the U.S. pop charts. Its previous release, 2000's Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water," ranked No. 5 after 13 weeks with sales of four million copies.

Metallica's poor-selling new album, "St. Anger," was named biggest disappointment, but it also came in at No. 2 as the best metal album, ranking behind Black Label Society's "The Blessed Hellride."

Metallica's Kirk Hammett was named best metal guitarist, a possible consolation prize for having all his solos cut from "St. Anger," and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl was named best rock guitarist, notwithstanding his initial claim to fame as the drummer with defunct rock band Nirvana.

Another long-gone band, Led Zeppelin, released the best rock album of 2003, the 3-CD live package "How the West Was Won," according to Guitar World readers. That category was rounded out by Audioslave's self-titled debut, the White Stripes' "Elephant," Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Vicious Cycle" and Rush's "Rock in Rio."

The other big disappointments of the year were listed as "all new music," the break-up of Texas metal veterans Pantera, the continued absence of a new Guns 'N Roses album, and Marcos Curiel's departure from Christian rock band P.O.D.

Creed isnt all that bad musically.

Creed - One is awesome

Yeah Creed ge ta a bad rap IMO because they are Christian Rock type stuff. There are a lot worse stuff out there by far.

The only reason I don't like Creed is because of his voice. It's too Pearl Jam, I guess.

And I dont think he is mimicking.

They just have similar voices.

01-01-2004, 06:19 PM
I HATE that voice.

01-02-2004, 02:05 AM
They're not my favorites, but since they've had some good songs in the past I can't hate them.

Creed isn't that bad. Sure they are Christian, which I hate, but that doesn't make their music bad (well, 2 or 3 songs that I like of theirs at least)

What is wrong with Christians?

01-03-2004, 09:35 AM
I think he means Christian music :-\

but Creed play Christian music very little more than, say, Evanescence do, despite members in both bands being devout Christians.

I listen to Christian bands, doesn't bother me.

Further Seems Forever..
Hell, even Hopesfall is christian.

I don't care much for Creed myself but I think Creed was picked second worst band only because it's cool to hate on them. Linkin Park should have been the second worst band. They suck donkey ass. I'm usually a non-violent person but hearing Chester's whiney voice makes me want to punch out his wussy ass.

<font color=teal>And it's definitely not cool to hate on LP now isn't it?</font>

It seems strange to list an inactive band as second-worst. If that's the case, what's to keep them from listing the Spice Girls? It makes just as much sense as Creed.

Of course, "Weathered" was pretty bad...

I saw FSF in concert, and I hated them.

I wanted to beat the singer to death with and old fashioned tennis racket.
