Worst Rock Band Ever !!!!

Who was/is the worst?

Seriously.  I'm interested in your perspective on strings in R&R or Rock...either or both.  


Strings can be great when used in the right place and well arranged.

Two examples pop to mind:

Nirvana - Something in the Way

Roxy Music - Love Me Madly Again

Whitesnake. They would be a good candidate for worst band.
@ghosthouse, yup, I'll be posting my thoughts. As a teaser, there are plenty of examples of them used in a way of which I approve ;-) ; Phil Spector, Brian Wilson, Roy Orbison, Randy Newman, The Lovin' Spoonful, and George Martin immediately come to mind. The use of brass (horns) is a related subject. Hint: my approved list won't include Chicago. I'll be back.
FWIW (little in the larger scheme of things, I know) - but generally, I've got nothin' against strings or horns.  Did kinda expect anti-strings would go along with anti-prog is all - but the reality ain't so simple, it appears.   

Talking about strings and horns and doing a 180 from the OP's original intent.  These might be the most ravishingly beautiful 144 seconds of contemporary music ever written -
