View Full Version : Bands You Once Liked But Are Too Ashamed To Admit It (Until Now)

You guys better respond to this or I'm going to be out on this ledge all by myself.

Okay- here are some bands or artists that I have liked but now look back in shame upon myself for having done so:

Survivor (I stood outside in the freezing cold in Dayton [Hara Arena?] and paid $50 in 1985 to see them open for REO Speedwagon. I wore out "Vital Signs," "Eye of the Tiger," and "Caught in the Game.")

REO Speedwagon (It was a great double bill, and "Hi Infidelity" ruled my school)

Journey- I grew up on a farm in eastern Cincy- I didn't know any better.

Styx- See Journey.

Starship- (It was after Kantner and everyone left, so double shame)

Hanson (it's bad enough I'm admitting it, do I have to say why?)

Honorable mention:

You couldn't have found a bigger Phil Collins, Rick Springfield, or Bryan Adams fan than me in the early 1980s. I even liked Lionel Richie for a time, but I think I did because this really cute girl I had a crush on did, too. No excuse?

Darn.

I'm not ashamed to admit it, but I used to really liked Jethro Tull. I'm not so sure why any more though.

But I still think "love is like oxygen" by Sweet is the bomb.

What that says. I don't know.

Good Girls Don't (But I do) is still brilliant. I don't care what anyone says.

So, you call her on the phone
To talk about the teachers that you hate.
And she says she's all alone,
And her parents won't be coming home til late.
There's a ringing in your brain,
Cause you could've sworn you though you heard her saying...

Just heard that song for the first time in decades the other day..... "Love is like oxygen. You get too much you get too high. Not enough and you're gonna die"

Hey! I love Jethro Tull, and not ashamed to admit it.

I liked the first 2-3 albums by Styx (espcially Equinox). After that - Blah! The songs "Babe" and "Mr Roboto" make me want to strangle the neighbor's cat.

I tried to follow the crowd and like Journey. Just couldn't hang. ;)

But I don't really know if there are any bands that I listened to back then, that I would define as being ashamed of. I liked alot of the early to mid 60's bands that today would be labelled as "bubblegum" or muzak - Dave Clark 5, Hermans Hermits, Paul Revere, Mammas & the Pappas, Monkees, etc.

But I still enjoy them. Music doesn't always have to have some deep esoteric meaning for me in order to enjoy it.

I even like Peter Frampton (Live album and prior). The record industry did a number on this guy trying to make him the next David Cassidy when he is an exxcellent guitarist.

Closest that I can get.....

Though I do like "Don't Shot Me I'm Only The Piano Player" and "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road"

That's as close as I can get Dom. ;)

I think I'll pass on this thread only because I've never been too ashamed to admit to liking certain bands or music in general. I consider my tastes unique and I'm proud of it. Of course, getting insulted and harrassed all those years liking Duran Duran gives you a thick skin...;)

I have no shame. I liked what I liked at the time, and still don't mind listening to some of the bands that popular opinion, which sometimes seems driven by talking heads on VH1, dismisses.

And I personally think that the fact that the same bunch of critics that moan about how terrible some of these bands were are now putting the Sex Pistols into the hall of fame says something. :eek:

is it possible to respectfully respect an artist for a certain period of their career? because when they were good, Styx and Elton John put out some quality stuff.

that said, i'm jumping off the big-boy's diving board:
ABBA.
Yeah. That's right. ABBA. i thought Winner Takes It All and Fernando were kick ass songs.
oh, and Blondie

Well, uh, I did become something resembling an NSYNC fan after taking my daughters to a concert in Lexington several years ago! :confused:
Thank the Lord it was just a temporary thing. :cool:

I grew up listening to and enojoying many of the artists that have been mentioned in this thread; heck, I've even PAID $$$ to see Elton John (Rupp Arena), Lionel Richie and the Commodores (Louisville's Freedom Hall), and REO Speedwagon (Johnson City, TN's Freedom Hall) in concert. :help:

I've bought the music of ABBA, Air Supply :( , Bryan Adams, Styx, and Starship, and I can even give you a few more artists that I've either attended their concerts or laid down cash for their songs---Neil Diamond, Gordon Lightfoot, Eric Carmen :bang: , the Bee Gees :rolleyes: , Dr. Hook, Billy Joel, Barry Manilow, John Cougar Mellencamp, Gerry Rafferty, Prince, Simon & Garfunkel, Rod Stewart, Cat Stevens, Al Stewart, Toto, and I could go on and on.

Now, my final two I'd like to add are not really ones that I'm ashamed of, as the thread title says, but ones that some of you might THINK I should be! :mooner:
I have had a LIFELONG admiration and appreciation for Journey (who I finally saw in concert, minus Steve Perry, at Riverbend a few years ago) and for Dan Fogelberg (who I saw in concert at the Starwood Amphitheatre in Nashville many years ago).
Those two are about the only ones I've mentioned here whose music I still play and enjoy listening to. :)

Beat that!First concert I ever saw was ELO in 1978 on their "Out of the Blue" tour. Changed my life....I, too, had every single album they put out.

I remember that their stage on that tour was a scale model version of that spaceship from the "Out of the Blue" album cover. It was essentially crammed into Rupp Arena, but the crowd seemed to dig it. The band played the entire concert from inside the spaceship (complete with very late 70's laser show). Bev Bevan made me want to be a drummer. Good times.

Men at *motherbleepin'* Work :cry:I actually saw them open for Fleetwood Mac in 1982.

I remember before the concert, we ran into the Men At Work lead singer in a boutique adjacent to the Rupp Arena. Their song "Down Under" at the time was one of about ten videos that were running in a continuous loop on MTV. So, needless to say, the lead singer thought he SHOULD have no trouble being recognized in public.

My friend walked up to whatzhisname in the store and asked, "Hey, aren't you the lead singer from Men At Work?"

He acted all put out with us and began to look for a pen (ostensibly to sign an autograph for us).

My friend just said, "Wierd video...."

and we both turned and walked in the other direction.

Yep. Gotta admit that if I post on the favorite bands thread, you will see ELO listed. And as for Men at Work, I was living in Australia when they first hit, then moved back home just before they hit here, so I lived through them twice, and still don't mind them.

I have "Fear is Never Boring" and a few other Raisins tunes on my I-pod. Best I can tell, it's about doin' the nasty with a lady who's into the rough stuff. But maybe it's a metaphor for something more sophisticated (doubt it).

i was actually a minor fan of Hall And Oats, until stumbling across their "Victor" album. those two were posed just a little too close to each other for my taste. then there was the very disturbing nudie shot of Mr. Oats on the inside lyrics sheet i could have done without.

I suggest you revisit New Order. If you remove the 80's dance remix sound they used to frost their songs with, their songs stand the test of time. They have turned out to be the best British band of the 80s, narrowly beating fellow mancunians The Fall.

Honestly not ashamed of anything I liked either at one time or currently. However, I'd imagine given my current age and perceived place in society ( sarcasm intended here ;) ) that some people would sneer if they knew I liked many of the 80's metal bands (and still do, though they are not what dominate my listening time nowadays as my interests and roles in life have changed) : Poison, Crue, Ratt, Cinderella (probably the one I still listen to the most).

Another band that for some reason caught my fancy years ago was Quarterflash. And I liked that song "Heart and Soul" by T'Pau.

But of course some people chuckle or whatever when you tell them the stuff you currently like as if you should be ashamed...

I never did like the BeeGees. In fact, for some unknown reason, my mom gave one of their albums to me for a X-Mas present. I suppose that could also go in the thread about the worst X-Mas present received. I turned my nose up at that album like she gave me a turd. She thought I liked them. :eek:

Yeah, they don't write 'em like that anymore.

He played at my high school. He was one spandex clad coked out little munchkin.

In 1981, he earned his first bona fide hit with the Top 20 single, "The Breakup Song (They Don't Write 'Em)," from the "RocKihnRoll" album. He continued in a more commercial vein through the '80s with a series of pun-titled albums: "Kihntinued" (1982), "Kihnspiracy" (1983), "Kihntageous" (1984), and "Citizen Kihn" (1985).

I think his greatest hits album will be called "I kihnt believe it's not better"

Did you see Susanna Hoffs the other night on one of the New Year's Eve shows? Still as hot as ever. But I could never date her because she was with Prince at one point.

I'm sure she's disappointed. :)

I couldn't date her because she never looks anyone in the eye.
You'd think a guy could get past that...

Okay, I'll admit to being into Night Ranger at the time. Maybe I'll check them out at the county fair next time they come around.

I still like Cheap Trick. And Falco (but not After the Fire).

Little Feat - fantastic band IMO. I have a Lowell George tribute CD I picked up in a used bin somewhere also.

Grease music is still cool to me too. I bought the sheet music for that soundtrack liked banging out those tune son the piano (poorly).

I was a big fan of Uriah Heep back in the early 70's The critcs were never kind to them. :lol:

I remember a conversation I had with my uncle, who is a musician in his own right and played in a couple local bands back in the 60's that toured around Ohio, and he tried to convince me that Cheap trick was the most versatile and talented band he ever saw.

And I liked Cheap Trick. I just found it hard to take a guy playing a 5 necked guitar seriously.
