2. The Beach Boys
Whether fairly or unfairly, Mike Love is widely portrayed as rock & roll's ultimate villain. Many see him as the guy who bullied his sensitive cousin Brian Wilson, mocked his brilliant work on Smile and grabbed control of the Beach Boys in the 1970s and turned them into a state fair act. In his defense, many others see him as the man who cowrote and sang the group's biggest hits and helped them survive (and even thrive) after Brian stepped aside.
The truth is probably somewhere in between but, with the exception of their 2012 50th Anniversary tour, he's toured as the Beach Boys without any other original members since the late 1990s. For whatever reason, he'd rather play shows with John Stamos than with Brian Wilson and Al Jardine. To many Beach Boys fans, this is sacrilegious and they just wish he'd put the group out of its misery. Don't count on that happening anytime soon.
