Southern rock bands we're ashamed of 

Mosi's Top Five

What makes the South so ripe for overwrought and overly earnest rock bands? Since the '70s, Southern musicians have destroyed relatively decent styles such as Southern boogie, grunge and nu-metal, mangling them into awfully bad (and bizarrely popular) corporate crap. These five acts take the cake:

1) Creed: All hail the insufferable Florida band Creed. Led by the great Scott Stapp, he welcomed the nation with arms wide open, a bottle of Jack Daniel's in one hand, and a bottle of Percocet in the other.

2) Hootie and the Blowfish: Yes, we're sure the guys in this South Carolina band are really nice. But their music still sucks.

3) Limp Bizkit: It's hard to believe that 10 million people actually bought this Florida band's Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water.

4) Matchbox Twenty: What's up with crappy Florida rock bands? Thank god Matchbox Twenty stopped making records. ... Oh no! Rob Thomas just went solo!

5) 3 Doors Down: Don't know much about this Mississippi band, but that "Kryptonite" song is pretty annoying.
