Music's Hall of Shame

"Music's dinosaurs live on in Hall of Shame"

Blender magazine's "50 worst artists in music history".  Some selections
are obvious, but there are a few surprises, e.g. #37 The Doors.  Bound
to stimulate debate.

The complete Blender article:

Some nominees that were obviously overlooked:

1. "Liam, Appletons & Howlett Form ABBA Style Group"
They're calling themselves 'LNNL', based on their first initials
(alá ABBA):
  Liam Gallagher (Oasis)
  Nicole Appleton (All Saints)
  Natalie Appleton (All Saints)
  Liam Howlett (Prodigy)

2. "Cherie braced for pop hit"

3. "Nine-day-old baby gets an earful at AC/DC gig"

4. "Out of tune guitar band sets record"

5. "Elvis all shook up, all night long"
Not Elvis, I mean the impersonator.
