    lol, some of their crossover stuff has really turned a lot of people off. I dont think anybody would be a big fan if they dont take the time to listen to whole albums, and even then I can get why people dont like them.

    But I think, in terms of music ability, there arent many as good as Gates.

    As has been pointed out, the vast majority of the voters aren't great guitarists themselves. By and large they're just good songwriters, and that appears to have significantly inlfuenced their voting. This is neither a list of the best guitarists or the best songwriters. It's some odd mixture of the two, and quite frankly doesn't make much sense in that regard. I'm sure non-guitarists may have trouble understanding that.
