Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water [Special UK Edition with Bonus CD]
1.  Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water [Special UK Edition with Bonus CD] by Limp Bizkit
The list author says:
  "'I know! instead of making a half decent album, lets rehash the songs from our last CD, and put loadsa rude words in so we look hard. it'll make millions, i tell you!'"
4.89   Used & New from: 0.99
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (201 customer reviews)

Iowa
2.  Iowa by Slipknot
The list author says:
  "This really is turning into a joke now. Do you know WHY albums make it to No.1 in the UK? 95% of the time, it's because they are 1) crap, 2) well marketed to the target audience. this is no exception"
8.22   Used & New from: 1.25
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (102 customer reviews)

The Fake Sound of Progress
3.  The Fake Sound of Progress by Lostprophets
The list author says:
  "Kids, Lostprophets are not 'one of the greatest British bands of the last decade' (see Stampin' Ground, Pitchshifter etc for good british bands). They are just another nu-metal band. get over it"
3.28   Used & New from: 0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (96 customer reviews)

Morning View
4.  Morning View by Incubus
The list author says:
  "What happened? After the superb Science and Make Yourself, comes this dull, sugar-laden-for-the-masses crap. Shame"
5.94   Used & New from: 0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (118 customer reviews)

Holy Wood
5.  Holy Wood by Marilyn Manson
The list author says:
  "MM seems to be more concerned these days with being a 'role model' for the desolate goth wannabes, than actually making good music anymore"
7.93   Used & New from: 1.17
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (92 customer reviews)

Enema Of The State
6.  Enema Of The State by Blink 182
The list author says:
  "OK, lets get one thing straight here: this is NOT punk rock. This is everything punk rebelled against. This, like modern day Limp Bizkit, is rock music for people who don't actually like rock music"
4.41   Used & New from: 0.74
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (143 customer reviews)

Break The Cycle
7.  Break The Cycle by Staind
The list author says:
  "Eee, what a terrible place this world is. Yet more whiny, watered down imitations of actual decent bands. If you wanna hear what Staind WISH they were, check out 'Dirt' by Alice in Chains"
3.89   Used & New from: 0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (77 customer reviews)

Hybrid Theory [U.S. Version]
8.  Hybrid Theory [U.S. Version] by Linkin Park
The list author says:
  "I remember someone describing LP as 'Savage Garden with a distortion pedal'. Nuff said. I hear there's a 'Tribute to LP' album as well, which is probably worth it for the comedy value alone"
5.00   Used & New from: 0.87
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (317 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Infest
9.  Infest by Papa Roach
The list author says:
  "Another prime example of fag end nu-metal. Hey kids, it's ok to think your life is sh*t and that everyone hates you, coz the guy on Kerrang TV from P-Roach can get away with singing about it"
4.88   Used & New from: 0.20
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (127 customer reviews)

All Killer, No Filler
10.  All Killer, No Filler by Sum 41
The list author says:
  "Oh dear, oh dear. It's not wise for your music to eerily reflect that of Blink 182, not when you consider how crap Blink are in the 1st place. What was Kerry King thinking being in that video..."
6.29   Used & New from: 0.99
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (65 customer reviews)

Anthology
11.  Anthology by Alien Ant Farm
The list author says:
  "You TOO can get 5 mins of fame! No talent required! 1) get a singer & bassist who act like assholes for the camera 2) cover an old song so you get on MTV 3) rerelease 1st single to cash in on Step 2)"
3.47   Used & New from: 0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (50 customer reviews)

Your New Favourite Band
12.  Your New Favourite Band by The Hives
The list author says:

9.99   Used & New from: 0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (47 customer reviews)

Nevermind
13.  Nevermind by Nirvana
The list author says:
  "I actually like Nirvana alot.It's just they're an image thing nowadays.I shake my head whenever i see a kid with that dumb 'I Hate Myself And I Want To Die' tee.Cheer up, life ain't THAT bad y'know"
12.74   Used & New from: 1.18
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (313 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Adema
14.  Adema by Adema
The list author says:
  "I'm gonna pick on Adema here, but there's plenty more whiny nu-metal types around that sound, oooh, 98% the same, wouldn't you agree? This is still disturbingly lame though."
11.15   Used & New from: 0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

Silver Side Up
15.  Silver Side Up by Nickelback
The list author says:
  "Someone once described this as 'classic rock at it's best'. i laughed so much i thought my pants would never dry. They'd probably sound like Papa Roach if the singer rapped, hahaha"
