At the top of my list would be PEARL JAM

Can't stand Eddie Veder's whiny voice and I just don't get what makes them so great.

those guys are so good that they put out their latest stuff for free. Not only that, they delivered it right to your iPhone even if you didn't want it. That's how good they are.

I can imagine the conversation:
Bono: hey Edge, our latest stuff is really good
Edge: yeah, I know.
Bono: everyone will love it as soon as they hear it.
Edge: we are awesome. Everyone should experience us.

I am a musician. So that refutes one point. Also, it's about opinions, and yours is no more valid than mine. Mine is not any more valid than yours.

I tell it like I hear it. They were not that great. They were pretty boys that got a lot of press back then, still do, and since were told every day that they were the greatest we should just agree. No. Go listen to some full concerts, not that spliced together crap like The Song Remains The Same, and at times they were absolutely hideous.

I'll take a thousand guitar players and vocalists over P&P, even Lee and Lifeson, any day.

Anyway, about the Rush comment. I guess you guys missed the sarcasm there. I will say, however, that a few Rush haters have come to me after viewing it and say they "get" it now. Take that FWIW.

I know a lot of folk love Rush for good reason, and after all the thread is about "great" bands we hate... from my own pov i respect Rush a lot on many fronts and was first intro'd to them nearly 30 years ago. Dammit i just can't get on with Geddy Lee's voice and every time i try listening to them (and there have been many) it just doesn't work.

Sorry i dont like Rush, however genuinely splendid they are

Nah, don't be sorry. Taste is what it is, subjective. I love Monty Python, many think they are just stupid. I can't stand Seth McFarlane, anything he does but millions love it. Baffles me but it would probably be a pretty boring planet if we all liked the same thing.

How bout Rush's instrumentals? YYZ for instance

Man, over the years? Duran Duran were said to be the next Beatles. They sucked. They said the same about Oasis. They sucked. Oh and U2 just sucks.

I can get on with that for sure, but i cant sit down and listen to an LP. In a way he makes me feel disappointed whenever i hear him, harsh but true.

Maybe one day i'll mellow.

Ha. Just curious. Kind of feel the same way, just not as strong. You would have thought someone would have said something to him

His voice has been equated with a cat with a blowtorch up it's rear end. He's heard it before. Funny how they have become one of the biggest bands in the world despite his voice.

I am going to get a lot of flack for this one here but...


There music is way to simplistic for my liking.

a reply to: Hefficide

LOL!! Well, about Led Zeppelin...they just made THE perfect song with stairway to heaven then decided to RUIN it by going all progressive on it and change the whole song!! Mad at them for that!


1: Metallica. Make all right music for their kinda genre (that genre is far from my cup of tea though) but their Napster antics made me despise them.
2: Drake. Cries about women in every song he makes...EVEN in a song he did called WUTANG4EVER , he managed to turn that into a broken heart!!
3: Pulp. Super lame!!
4: Meatloaf. Not really sure why he exists...
5: Master P. He RUINED hip hop in the 90's.
6: The gangnamstyleguy. I wish he would......*holds back thoughts to save the world from an all out war*
7: Timbaland (the producer) This guy makes nothing but stupid dumb CLUB beats that produce songs that leave NOTHING behind. No inspirational lyrics at all..this guy is all about the brainless #. Hate every song he's ever made.
8: Little wayne. This fellow said I'm THE Greatest 200 times in a row in 20 songs in a row and the sheep started believing him. I hate him for being this smart, because he truly sucks.
9: Jay Elec - Because he's probably the best rapper alive BUT ONLY releases 1 song a year! (if you're googling yourself use this as an inspiration lol!)
10: Britney Spears before she started following me on twitter (true story)
11: George Michael. Just no.
12: Every single artist to hold the attention of the world who decided to waste their time and talk about meaningless #. I mean, you have the whole world at your palm, listening and you want to tell them how much money you have? lol okkkk buddy!!
13:Backstreet boys & N'Sync. Reason: I'm a dude, F yall!
14: Jay-Z. Has a few good songs but like a....millionteenth weak ones. Combine him with our #7 and you have a guaranteed piece of trash!

15: ZZ Top. WTF!!
16: Not a band, but I hated EVERY SINGLE THING ABOUT THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW. In a perfect world they would remove the word HORROR from it unless they changed it to THE MUSIC HORROR PICTURE SHOW!
17: EVERYBODY who are in it for the money and lack passion. Every single soul who've ever thought "HEY IMA START making music so I can get money" me no like those...
18: DIPSET. Grown men who can't rap but still attempt it and their brand is WEARING PINK/PURPLE...wth??
19: Fat Joe. He was OKKKK...but...I mean......dude! You went from DITC to selling your soul. Went from "Da Enemy" to having your own dance...F U!
20: Dr. Dre. He keeps having ghost-writers- ghost-beatmakers...I'm sure he has ghost-livers for him too and he hasn't found any recently and that's why he's been a DECADE to make his latest album. Doesn't make fun music imo. He even had Royce da five nine WRITE the song about his passed away brother. If you can't pen down a few words in a eulogy song about your family you got no business being a rapper.

OK...........This was fun. I keep talking about how much I LOVE music. This was a nice change
I´ll probably think of 200 more soon as I hit enter but so be it!

I LOVE when people talk about "experienced" dubsteppers and guys who've been in it for long, cause that means they've been making music for 2 years or less ...stupid genre of music imo. Every dubstep song has that FART-BASS too. Dubsteppers should remix the rocky horror picture show and add meatloaf vocals on top of the songs with the occasional lil wayne & jay-z raps and then all participants would automatically go to hell

I have been on a powerful detox regimen consisting of watching 'Inventing David Geffen' repeatedly, and tracing various Laurel Canyon ties to the powers that sleaze.

The Geffen thing almost destroyed me. Recalling my record collection, I realized that I was an unwitting victim to his handiwork. I shan't go into details. Either you want to get clean, or you don't. I see Huckleberry Hound, with a military Dad, but you see Jim Morrison, or Jackson Browne. A real shame Manson didn't get any laurels. He was a real hit with a lot of our idols.

But I quickly realized that this shapeshifting, cowboy clad blackballing self-exiled closet homo blackmailing killer thug was the rudder for all that hippy tripe at the center of the controlled opposition to~surprise~ the MIC. The very first step in his career was based on several counts of mail fraud and perjury. Instead of serious protests about things like unjust wars, pollution, and the bourgeoning rise of the killer cop state, we got an entire culture of spiritually foundationless acid heads who'd screw anything that had a pulse, until the 1st proverbial 'vial' was unscrewed, and then they'd just phase to screwing things without a pulse, until they finally settled on an eternal gangbang of whatever remained of the corpse of Lady Liberty. Complete natural, when I consider the master chef. And don't mention 'God' at all.

Sell outs. I see the fat faces of 'Eagles' (just like Ukraine; it's not 'The' Eagles, the proper name is 'Eagles') and now I just wanna puke. Especially when they were young. Many of Geffen's underlings did time, lots of it, in mental institutions, rendering them the perfect beasts for a cultural plague to foment, and fester.

"You're gonna be rich. But I'm gonna be richer."

Baby you're a rich man. Now go worship your new plague idol, you stone broke zionist draft dodging pimp.

Getting clean isn't easy. To this day, I cannot turn on the radio. It has been about 10 years without knowing anything about contemporary music. I am still recovering from the stuff I heard decades ago. But in each shoulder, there is a bird like torus that sometimes makes itself known to my nervous system, and gives my mind perspective such that the universe seems but a small bubble to be viewed from without. I am just beginning to see. The trappings and lures of the blind can never hope to intrude on my senses, ever again.

Anyhow, I never got Zappa. He is lauded as a great musician, but I have such a natural distaste for it that I never heard 99% of his work. I'd mention others I dislike, but that would only launch their comebacks. Zappa is dead, so no worries there.

I'd visit Laurel Canyon. I'd hit it with a loud guitar tuned with piano gauged strings, and then I'd walk far away.

i dont understand why people say that certain bands sold out. happens a lot with metallica.

why did they sell out? cause st anger did not sound like master of puppets?

why does a band have to have the same sound all the time?

i just dont get it

The Eagles. I just can't stand them. The radio station gets changed the second one of their songs come on.

Some people I know would stone me for saying that but it's nails on a chalkboard to me.

posted on Oct, 16 2014 @ 12:26 PM
Neither Nirvana or Pearl Jam have any appeal to me at all.

As for bands selling out that's noble and wonderful when you are a garage band struggling to eat and drive across country but when being in a band is what you do for a living then you have every right to make whatever salary you can.

Who is to blame more , a band that writes a song they think will sell well or millions of people buying that song?

Quite frankly....yes. It actually started with the Black album. Although Death Magnetic got back there a bit.
