There is no band/group; even The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zep, The Who, Elvis, CCR, ZZ Top, AC/DC, Van Halen, ABBA, The Carpenters etc who have the 'majority' of public opinion going for them.

Joey Jordison?

Easy target; I remember people saying exactly the same thing about Neil Peart, Carl Palmer, Alan White, Mike Portnoy, Danny Carey...

BTW, yes I listen to some Slipknot and think it's OK. I also know there is much of what Joey plays that I can do on any afternoon when practising. BUT: How often is the line 'play for the song' bandied around? And lets be honest, does he do that?
Drinking rum before 10am makes you a PIRATE, not an alcoholic...........
