um, Sublime??? no Ween? no Phish? no Grateful Dead? whatever your tastes are, I mean, come on. these bands have actual followings. Kiss belongs on there. Slayer, hm, maybe, I'm sure all 38 remaining fans are really hardcore, but #1? what a joke. they are an amazing band though. Bruce, sure, Buffet makes the worst music ever except for Steve Miller but he def. has fanatical fans. GBV? no. Tori Amos? no. Black Sabbath? sorry, but no. really, no band at any time has ever had a fan base as fanatical as Kiss at the height of their career, except maybe the Dead. Madonna belongs on there as well. the Cure. any band that can get their fans to orient their whole wardrobe around them - that's fanaticism.
