1. Creed

It's no surprise that Creed won this poll. It wasn't even close. This is a band so hated that their own fans sued them after a famously bad show in Chicago in 2003. Frontman Scott Stapp is so despised that when a video surfaced of him getting a blowjob next to Kid Rock, Kid Rock said he was mainly embarrassed people learned he was hanging out with Scott Stapp. The band reformed in 2009 for a reunion tour, but their fans have moved on. Sales were so horrendous in Birmingham that tickets were lowered to 75 cents. In 2000, the group could sell out arenas within seconds. They toured last year and played their two biggest albums straight through, but even that couldn't get them back into arenas. It's pretty much over, and Creed is basically as popular as Alter Bridge right now.
