Now, it has come to my attention that some of our readers are questioning my competence to judge Rock n' Roll.

For instance, there was this recent comment-

And what little credibility you had Charles, there it goes.

And then this creepy guy and also this one

I really didn't want to do this, but I have been left with no choice...

Now, on to the music!

40. Blinded by the light, Manfred Mann
As is the way of everything- something becomes perfect, just as it also becomes this case Acid Rock. It sucks.

39. Plush, Stone Temple Pilots
Boring! Next!

38. [Everything by] van Hagar
There are no words for such popish, synthesized, absolute garbage; it needs to be stricken from the hallowed halls of Rock n' Roll.

37. Black Hole Sun, Soundgarden
Go be depressed and cut yourself somewhere else.

38. I'm Your Captain/Closer to Home, Grand Funk Railroad
An exorcize exercise in just how long a sustained whine can go on.

37. In a Gadda Da Vida, Iron Butterfly
Paleo-Metal, my ass...this is pure, uncut suck, laced with crap.

36. Black Magic Woman, Santana
Dense, in every conceivable permutation of that word.

35. Numb, Linkin Park
The bastard offspring of a violent and short lived domestic arrangement between Eminem and Justin Bieber.

34. Wheel in the Sky, Journey
Mind numbingly dull. There are these things called "breaks". Look 'em up some time.

33. (Don't Fear) The Reaper, Blue Oyster Cult
Hey, here's a good idea! Let's encourage some troubled teens to commit suicide.

32. Hey Jude, The Beatles
Why hasn't someone parodied this crap yet? Oh...(NSFW)

31. Tom Sawyer, Rush
AAAAAAAH! Stop playing this! STOP! For the love of God, please, I beg you! Stop!

Don't miss the next one as we break into the top 25! Coming Friday. Tune in and drop out!
