I like U2 and Phil Collins.

blmeanie mentioned Bob Seger and I agree. I have actually left places where bands did one of his covers because I detest him so much.

I used to hate U2 but I've found myself warming to them once I separated their music from Bono's obnoxious persona.

About everything that involves metal (Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Korn, Slipknot and stuff like that)
Kiss
Bon Jovi
Scorpions (maybe my least favourite band from those who "made it pretty big"--at least in Europe)
Ramones
Coldplay
Rammstein
Leonard Cohen
Also, those super-technical shredding guitarists like Steve Vai, Satriani etc. do nothing to me.

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 ??

I think they were brilliant up to zooropa, Achtung baby remains one of my favorite end to end albums of all time.

Yeah, we find him so obnoxious that my daughter coined the term "Bono face", which refers to anyone who has that look like "No one could possibly equal me as a humanitarian". Grr.

I never really liked The Greatful Dead in general. There are some individual songs I liked by them but for the most part I found them too loose and aloof.

I really dig their two albums released in 1970: Workingman's Dead and American Beauty. Never cared too much about the rest of their stuff.

Same here.  All I care about is the music.  I don't care what any of them do otherwise.  If they want to name their kid Apple or whatever, fine with me.  ha2ha

Now if they want money for people with minds that hate, that's a different matter altogether....

I'm not much of a "pop culture" guy.  I don't pay attention to marriages, divorces, rehab stays, red carpet appearances, etc.

The same thing applies to actors.  I respect and appreciate the talent, but that's as far as it goes.

I'm in the same boat. I don't worship pop stars, I just like music and want to be entertained.

I loved Stevie Ray Vaughan's guitar playing on Let's Dance, but not much else from Bowie.
