Great bands that you just don't like
« on: August 02, 2012, 01:03:45 AM »

Was working with a woman last week who had great taste in music, but she just 'didn't get' The Beach Boys, she knew she should like them, but just didn't and couldn't explain why.

I'm the same with REM & U2. I just don't like them.
So what great bands do you just 'not get?'

Springsteen, Pink Floyd, Van Halen, CCR, Eagles, Queen, AC/DC, Van Morrison, Nirvana.

Cant stand any of them.

"Different strokes for different folks."  I guess that sums it up.

I was a reporter on my college newspaper.  I had a great beat...The Music Scene.  And I got to interview a lot of the performers.  One night, I was sent to a concert where Van Morrison was opening for the New Riders Of The Purple Sage.  The audience was a New Riders crowd and was booing Van Morrison continuously.  In the middle of a song, Mr. Morrison stopped singing and let his microphone hit the stage floor with a resounding THUD.  Then he just walked off stage.

I was looking forward to interviewing him after his act, but he left the theater.

Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin may be the greatest bands that I don't like, but I still respect them. I don't like Queen as well, but I don't respect them that much.

I loathe  U2.  They used to be great up until about 1993. Then they began bringing out rubbish

I'm don't mind Floyd but I have none of their albums. Same with the Eagles.

I loathe Coldplay with a passion but they aren't in the same league as the great bands anyway

I hate the Kiss, that's why they are not a great band  ha2ha

We should create topic like `Not great bands which you hate'  ;D
or `Not great bands which you love'

Oh! And I also don't like U2 at all, and they are not great band too, just too much popular  roll:)

I dont hate KISS, but I agree with this. I still dont think they would have ever made it if not for the makeup and shock value of it all. They just werent that good.

I can't listen to Pink Floyd. It doesn't do anything for me.
Dire Straits is another band that a lot of people seem to like. I turn it off immediately.

Odd, I was thinking earlier today about KISS - how little I think of them - before I saw this thread.

U2 also. Every song sounds the same to me.

REM - a few catchy tunes, but overall...feh!

I agree with a lot of comments here. I do think The Eagles do what they do pretty well, for that genre. One thing I'll say, they do a good show. Worked crew for one of their gigs a few years ago and they played 3+ hours pitch perfect. Joe Walsh's solo and James Gang catalog thrown in, too. They've been played to death on the radio, though. Way overexposed. A never-ending elevator ride.

  :P

to each his own, almost every "hate" you all have mentioned has generated something I like, maybe Kiss is the exception

Dire Straits is the other mentioned previously that I will turn immediately.  Bob Segar is no "great" but I will physically slam whatever device starts playing that crap.

haha
I went completely off him when I heard him singing about homeless people, meanwhile he had an empty castle in Scotland, house in Switzerland, London and America

So what I want to know is, who the hell DOES like U2, they are one of the biggest selling bands of all time, somebody must like them ??
