Why do people support so much bad music? What if people paid awful bands to quit instead? Weezer fans are willing to try. Sick and tired of being let down by his favorite band, last week a fan jokingly offered Weezer $10 million to split up.
Naturally, this had Rocks Off thinking of other acts we'd pay to stop making music. Grab your earplugs - shitty bands ahead.
5. The Ting Tings
This no-talent pop duo sounds worse than anything that's come out of the UK in the last five years. They borrow ingredients from just about every genre but can't quite figure out how to make the music palatable. We'd rather listen to the stomach rumblings of Miss Overweight Texas. The good news is that they've only released one album so far. If we hurry and raise some moolah, we might be able stop this mess before it infects innocent children everywhere.
4. Limp Bizkit
Every year, we hold a premature funeral for these awfully pathetic rap-rockers. Every year, they get back together and assault our ears further. When Durst and Co. finally decide to draw the curtain on their sad music career, no one will miss them. We'll definitely hold a fundraiser if it helps expedite the process.
3. Insane Clown Posse
We think there might actually be something seriously wrong with these guys. For starters, they look stupider than they sound. And they claim that the devil visited them one night and made them his apocalyptic messenger or something. Bottom Line: You can't cover up the fact that you have as much musical talent as a flock of geese with makeup and drunken stories.

We don't know what's worse: The repetitive riffs or the ham-fisted lyrics about date rape, booze and sexual exploits. Actually, the only thing worse than Nickelback's lousy music is Chad Kroeger's singing - dude sounds like a wounded llama yelping in pain. Retire. Now.
1. Wu-Tang Clan
Okay. Look, Wu-Tang Clan is arguably the greatest rap group ever. That's exactly why they're on this list. Lately, the Clan has been churning out a plethora of mishaps that clutter its otherwise pristine catalog. This has to stop. We'd gladly head to Staten Island to hand RZA and Co. a fat check to stop destroying Wu's legacy. Then we'd take off running immediately. Ghostface is a big dude, yo.
