For every great Nineties band like Nirvana and Radiohead, there were about five terrible ones like Creed, Eve 6 and LFO. Many of these groups faded from sight and have been dormant for years, but their 20-year anniversaries are kicking in with accompanying nostalgia, and bands like Vertical Horizon, Fastball and Filter are hooking up with other Nineties groups to cash in this summer.

Now we have a question for you: What is the worst band of the Nineties? We know that's a big question and it brings all sorts of groups to mind, but please only vote for one. It also needs to be a group that had their commercial peak in the 1990s. The Black Eyed Peas and Coldplay may have started in the Nineties, but they didn't reach a big audience until the 2000s. Likewise, groups that started in the Eighties but peaked in the early Nineties (Warrant, Nelson) also count. Also, please don't vote for any solo artists. This is all about bands, and boy bands do count.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
