    To add to the ‘so bad it’s awful’ Richard Blackwood – You’ll Love to Hate This (which is completely untrue, I hate that it exists, and don’t love that fact at all). I’ll put more votes forward for Kimya Dawson – Alphabutt (quite possibly the worst record I’ve ever heard), LCD Soundsystem – Sound of Silver (ARGH!) and Emmy the Great – First Love (utterly, utterly pointless)

    Yeah, I don’t get the whole LCD Soundsystem hype either. But an album you should die rather than hear… c’mon! Let’s reserve our venom for the real culprits. Like The Belle Stars. Or The Close Lobsters.

    Albums you should die before you hear : Anything by the sordid BLINK 182 and yes its official, Coldplay really are the pits!

  4. David December 3, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    OK … so you’re obviously saving Wa Wa Nee (self titled) till last?

  5. Gareth December 4, 2010 at 12:05 am

    I’d happily die before hearing ‘North American Scum’ one more time, or anything off the first Killers record.

    Will second the Blink 182 call and raise you Smash Mouth – Astro Lounge

  6. Matt December 4, 2010 at 1:02 am

    Kaiser Chiefs – Yours Truly Angry Mob. The Pastels – Truckload of Trouble. Aphex Twin – Bleep Fuckin Weird Bleep. Even worse – all of them are on my shelf.

    I agree that “No Wow” was not The Kills’ best record. But I didn’t think it so bad that one must die before hearing it. That’s a bit harsh.

  8. JB December 28, 2010 at 3:09 am

    Any list with The Smiths on it should be thrown out. What a travesty.

  9. Nate M March 18, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    I would gladly take “Sailing the Seas of Cheese” over any of this deadpan, sunglasses indoors, Jesus & Mary Chain ripoff bullshit that Williamsburg keeps barfing up

    Simple Minds ‘Street Fighting Years’ was a classic album. In fact as a fan for nearly 40 years I’d have to say its one off my favorite albums.
    Everyone has their own opinion but in this case I’m right and your wrong.
