Limp Bizkit, CREED and The Strokes are the unlikely acts at the top of music magazine GUITAR WORLD's Worst Bands of 2003 poll.

The groups were one, two and three on the list, with "all pop punk bands" coming in at number four and Good Charlotte at number five.

Metallica's ST ANGER album was named the Disappointment of The Year in the poll, but the project was also named the second best album - behind THE BLESSED HELLRIDE by Black Label Society.

Metallica's Kirk Hammett was named Best Metal Guitarist and Foo Fighters star DAVE GROHL Best Rock Guitarist.

Led Zeppelin's HOW THE WEST WAS WON package was picked as the Rock Album of 2003, beating out THE WHITE STRIPES' ELEPHANT, which topped many December (03) album polls.
