    I've never seen them before, but seeing afi on saturday night live made me want to commit murder.
    Tired of bands who have had their testicles chopped off. I hate everything about that band and all bands like them.

    I believe it was spin (couldve been a diff mag) who listed the 100 greatest rock acts and I remember seeing MCR in the thirties ahead of black sabbath......ridiculous. Listeners have never been more blind. Another sign of the times I suppose.

    The list is talking about "Right Now". And yes Tool should replace one of them easily...

    They are kissing MCR's booty cause they like to and U2 is just to please the masses... And yeah where is Muse? I cant wait for everyone seeing them opening for MCR be blown away and think MCR was boring as s**t afterwards.

    Agreed and agreed. Muse and Tool both put on fucking amazing shows.

    And I may be shot for this but I saw GnR recently and their show was ridiculously amazing. Yes, even with the new members..

    that's a bullshit list - 50% of those bands aren't worth their weight live or even in musical talent..

    In spite of all our own personal annoyances with MCR... its shocking to see them on the list considering the volume of poor reviews that mainstream press gave their live cd "Life on the Murder Scene".

    Stupid Spin. However i am glad to see radiohead and My Morning Jacket on the list. Wilco would a good addition in my opinion.
