Thread: Rock bands you can't stand

    Pretty much every "rock" band that's come out in the last 6 years. I don't get the emo thing at all...can't stand it!

    As far as older bands are concerned, I'd say:

    Creed
    U2
    Coldplay --I don't get the obession...they suck.
    The Rolling Stones
    The Beatles --they are not the greatest musicians ever to exist. People act like they're Gods or something.

    ohh, and Ozzy Osborne has totally ruined himself for me with all his reality show crap. Dude, you're a Rockstar...don't do stupid reality shows...you're not Bret Michaels!

    Never understood the hype around Nirvana, or Kurt Cobain either.
    I was that way all throughout the '90's, but a few years ago I gave them a serious listen and I kind of enjoyed them. I don't think they're as good as history remembers them, though. And they certainly were not the best of the Seattle 'Grunge' bands.

    I just pray that we're not entering a new generation that will only like musicians or actors only because of their looks or appeal...or else music will never be the same again.

    Image has totally ruined music. If you go back to the 60's and 70's musicians looked like people you saw at local bars and no one cared because they made great music. Today it's all about looking good and making subpar music. I don't think that will change any time soon, if ever. It's a darn shame.

    Its always been like that MTV just exacerbated it at the beginning of the 80s. You saw much Duran Duran but very little Joe Jackson.

    Yeah, but I'm not talking just about clothes and hair. The musicians from the 80's would be considered ugly by todays standards. Even in the 80's it was more about individuality when it came to image. These days it's all about looking the same. Designer this, designer that...plastic face, plastic boobs, etc. As long as you look like that, it doesn't matter how bad your voice is, the computer will just fix it for you...they'll play it on the radio over and over...you're a hit! Not to mention all the songs sound exactly the same!

    I saw all four of those bands in their respective heydays, and grew to regard them in varying degrees of disrespect in later years, to wit:

    KISS: "Alive!" and "Destroyer" changed my life forever, and I was in the audience (age 13) at the recording of "Alive II" at the L.A. (but actually in Inglewood) Forum. Cheap Trick opened. Yes, to hardcore KISSers, I WAS THERE (and I lost the button they handed out at the door, and then the t-shirt wore out).

    KISS' travails and various reunions in the 90s and on were great then, sadly now laughable again. If Gene's vices involved more than just sex and money, who knows where they'd stand now? They'd certainly amount to more than a ghost of a band (having fired Ace and Pete all over again) that Gene now hangs his A&E show upon. That said, don't miss the Kiss Symphony DVD they did in Australia with Pete, Tommy Thayer and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Incredible!

    Those other bands, sorry, piss off -- aside from giving Cheap Trick a nod for maintaining/reuniting their original lineup, I have moved on. So should they.

    I think I love you--wanna go make out somewhere?

    I think most of Kurt and Nirvana's fame came AFTER he died..... Courtney did it...... sorry, but she had something to do with it

    They had only what..one album? Two?
    Pearl Jam and Soundgarden rank with Nirvana as the top Seattle acts, Heart as well.... but nobody thinks of Alice in Chains. They were out first, and my boys are still the best there ever was <3
    Yes I know I'm completely biased..... it's a habit




    Added to the list of drano sucking: John Denver....... EEK!

    Every time I turn on the radio and flip through the stations I think, "This sucks....that sucks....this sucks....that sucks..." and then I end up listening to my MP3 player anyway.

    They all suck. Although most would say the same about what I listen to. My favorite genre's have never been "popular", so I don't have to worry (for the most part). Heres what I listen to:

    Old school country
    Rockabilly
    Psychobilly
    Old school punk & hardcore
    Slayer (my one metal band)

    That stuff will NEVER be commercially viable, and I hope it never does.

    I prefer solo artists over bands anyday. I detest heavy metal & grunge music genres so EVERY heavy metal/grunge music band would be on my list. Some bands that come to mind that I can't stand are:

    Guns N roses
    Poison
    Nirvana
    Pearl Jam
    Rush
    AC/DC
    Pink Floyd

    BTW: I AM a Beatles fan!! I like singing along with Beatles songs

    I usually wouldn't argue with one's opinion but I believe GnR were one of the best bands to come out of the 80's and Appetite for Destruction is a great album from beginning to end. The rest of your list I agree with except for a song or two by Pearl Jam.

    BTW love your sig.

    LMAO!! Doesn't he though? I can't even listen to his lastest fare on the radio. Pisses me off every time I realize it's not Werewolves of London! At least THAT song had some decent lyrics! (I saw a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's and his hair was perfect.)

    Radio killed that song by overplaying it. I've heard it enough for this lifetime.
    They should play other Zevon stuff instead.

    I can agree with that. Especially when Warren's other stuff was really good and not just a novelty song.

    I can't even remember if I answered this. The list is ever expanding.

    Nickelback. They just get worse and worse.

    Jonas Bros. I don't understand? Make me understand?

    Jessica Simpson --- Although, I will say her going to country music was a good decision. Her voice fits better in country.

    Britney Spears - it is just a rehashing of the same crap. It sounded better two albums ago.

    It sounds like the background music for some tween show. I can just see Claire Danes moping around on some lake shore after some guy stood her up for the prom.

    I'll be nice, because I don't want to bash your boys! My son (12 years old) thinks Green Day is THE band. I guess my problem with them is I've heard it all before. So one day, we're riding in the truck, and 21 Guns comes on. Something seems so familiar. They get to the chorus and it hit me, so I start singing "ALLLLLL, ALL THE YOUNG DUUUUUDES". Pissed. Him. OFF!

    Later that night, as I hear him blasting that damn new CD, I notice he keeps going back to "Know Your Enemy". I play guitar...and I'm thinking "Hey...I can do that". I run downstairs and sure enough, it's just three chords, and I have a preset on my amp that gets me pretty close to BJ's sound on that one. Now, I have played all kind of stuff for my kid, usually get an "eh, that's okay Dad" response. I mean, I have pulled out all the Van Halen tricks, two-hand tapping and stuff, just showing off. Nothing. I bring him downstairs and start bashing out these three chords...and he goes nuts! "DAD! You can play GREEN DAY?? That is so cool!".

    Sigh...

    I will give BJ credit, a good three-chord hook will move some CDs. He's not stupid.

    Lol even if you did bash them I am use to it. My boyfriend constantly abuses Green Day, some of the stuff he comes out with is actually pretty funny.
    My 4 year old hunted down Green Day on the tv for me one morning then come running into the kitchen to tell me lol, shes a star.

    Another band that annoys me:

    AC/DC. I like their music, but can't stand Angus Young. There's only so much of the schoolboy head flop schtick that I can tolerate. And I personally think he's one of the most overrated rock guitarists of all time.

    The suit is getting old but Angus has done more with three chords than any other guitarist I can think of. After Back in Black the music isnt that good. All the Bon Scott stuff is great though.
