View Full Version : Artists You Simply Cannot Stand

I'm referring to a band, solo artist, or even a song - that when you hear them on the radio or any other media, it drives you nuts! You want to reach down and rip your radio out of the console of the car... you want to drive off the road and start taking out landmarks or livestock. :cool:

Some of mine?

Huey Lewis and the News - the whole repertoire, but Heart of Rock N Roll
Genesis - Tonight,Tonight,Tonight & Invisible Touch Arrrrrgh!
Bryan Adams - Summer of 69
Corey Hart - Sunglasses At Night (just heard this one)
McCartney & Wonder - Ebony and Ivory
Styx - Babe and Mr Roboto
Debbie Boone - You Light Up My Life

Just for starters

Puddle of Mudd
Three Days Grace
Matchbox Twenty
Godsmack
Saliva
Buckcherry

Panic at the Disco is a joke but I have to be honest--I kinda like Take This to Your Grave (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Take_This_to_Your_Grave) by Fall Out Boy. Anything after that and yes can't stand it...

Fleetwood Mac - My parents loved them, and tortured me from birth

The Dixie Chicks - Beginning with that stupid "Goodbye Earl" song, their voices are sandpaper for my soul, they even covered Stevie Nicks "Landslide" even worse

Pretty much all acts considered to be Adult Contemporary during the 80s and early 90s

Aretha Franklin your ego and your hat are too big, and you haven't had a hit song since I have been alive, but everyone insists that you are still the greatest. Sorry

Madonna- You are old, get off the stage

The Foo Fighters --- I don't know why I can't stand them, but I do.

"Hollywood *****" by...i think Papa Roach. poignant, but bland. same with "Bad Girlfriend" by...someone.

Buckcherry topped out with "Lit Up"

Aerosmith has suked for years, "Amazing was the last song they had i like since "Walk This Way" and "Dream On."

i absolutely don't understand the Dave Mathews thing, especially since about half their fanbase seems to hate the glory that is Simon and Garfunkel.

i also dislike Incubus, most bland rap acts (Wu Tang rox), and most Carlos Santana songs.

hell, i hate Toby Keith, but i can acknowledge he's prolly the most talented overall, artist out there right now (that's writing, arrangement, and ability in that order).

*BaseClogger*

Rascal Flatts. I hate all pop country, but they are the worst.

I listened to a Neil Young and the International Harvesters show today, and although I respect Young as an artist and like what he stands for, I struggle with the sound of his voice sometimes. Not saying it sn't good- it just doesn't vibrate my eardrums well, I guess.

Ouch! Hinder, Shinedown, and especially Seether are three of my favorite bands of this decade, and I'm well into my 40s! Seether's remake of Careless Whisper is awesome. To each his own, I guess.

:dunno:

Back to the "despised" list, there was a country group back in the 90s called The Tractors. They were a one-hit wonder with a song that went something like "baby likes to rocket like a boogie woogie choo choo train". It's a wonder I didn't destroy a couple of stereos over that song. Also, anything by Brooks and Dumb. I can't believe they can continue to release songs with such cliche lyrics and have big hits with them.

Oh, and let's throw in Limp Bizkit, Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, Carrie Underwood, and Kellie Clarkson while we're at it.

AC/DC. I like Thunderstruck and that's it. I pretty much despise every other song they sing. They all sound the same. That guy's voice is more annoying than someone scratching their nails on a chalkboard.

I think Incubus could be great if they had a different singer. I like their music but he holds them back in a big way. Bad voice.

And let me throw out another shoutout for Nickelback. Worst band of the millenium.

Dom Heffner
03-17-2009, 08:30 AM
Nickelback took their name from the value of their music and the refund people would be asking for after hearing it.

I like Dave Matthews, but there are times he sounds like Adam Sandler when he sings.

As for artists I hate, the post grunge era (of which Matchbox Twenty is not even remotely a part of) pretty much sums it up.

I call this era, "Butt Rock," which can be defined as really grungy looking dudes singing love songs. Nothing like watching a music video that has a guy with 50 body piercings, tattoos, leather, boots, motorcycles, etc. , and he's singing an acoustic ballad.

I also can't stand the rap thing, if nothing else for the same reason as butt rock.

You have some guy dressed like he's in a street gang- gold teeth, wife beater, MLB hat off to the side, strutting around like he's a bad a**.

Yeah, when I think of intimidating people, I think of rappers. Wow, honey, be careful around that guy, he might break out into a rap! And he likes the Detroit Tigers- how frightening!!!

Dom I can agree with most of your post but Dave Matthews sometimes sounds like Adam Sandler? That's funny but really?

Most of the bands in the post that's been quoted multiple times (Hinder, Seether, Godsmack, Nickelback, ...) all sound alike to me. If there's nothing else on the radio it's ok but I doubt I'd ever pay anything to hear them. Same with a bunch of the alternative/pop boy bands (Fall Out Boy, Panic at the Disco, ....)

Twenty-five years ago I couln't get into rap. Still can't.

Someone mentioned Brittney Spears. Does anyone actually consider her an ''artist"? Does she write any of her songs? (hell if I know but I'd be surprised) Does she play any instrument? (Never seen it) Can she sing well? (without "help") She seems more like an entertainer/brand name/production. ("Oh no Brittney shaved her head again?? Ok we can fix this. We have to. She's our meal ticket")

But if I have to pick one thing it would be all the "rock/heavy metal" bands that have come out in the last 10 years that when they sing it just doesn't sound like singing. I mean when it sounds like they're just yelling, literally yelling, and you can't make out a single word.

Ok, make it two things. I'd add all the 70's very soft rock sound alike bands. (If you know who Bread is I feel sorry for you)

Hey GAC, I think Badfinger was gonna be the next Beatles too. Oh well. Everyone wants the next big thing yet they can't let go of the past.

Post edit: I hate Madonna too, but not because she's old, but because she sucks and always has.

Words cannot describe the distaste I have for Dave Matthews. The hate I harbor for him and his music was compounded by a former roomate in college who worshipped the guy (not you Nate). A friend of mine used to joke that he knew Dave Matthews fans who would wonder why Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan ripped off Dave's "All Along the Watchtower" because, obviously, Dave wrote that, but it wouldn't surprise me to know some fanboys actually thought that. I blame Dave for everything that is wrong with modern music today. No offense to anyone who likes him, I am just diametrically opposed to his existence.

He has that squeaky voice at times. When he sings, "I am no Superman..." all I can hear is Adam Sandler. Or maybe it just inspires me to sing it that way. I've been on both sides of the Dave train. I can tolerate him now, though I would rank DMB fans up there with the Cubbies'.


I don't know--most music experts smarter than I place them into that category...

I'm talking about a sound, not so much a time period. Matchbox Twenty is just white man's pop rock.

I look at the other names on that list, and they don't fit there in my humble opinion. Even the article you linked to compared them to Train, REM....hardly post grunge stuff in style.

I left Radiohead off the list because GAC mentioned bands that you hear on the radio.

Nobody plays that noise on the radio because nobody wants to hear it. :)

Seriously, the Backstreet Boys' greatest hits are more listenable than that stuff.

I just wonder how Rolling Stone can give all these unlistenable records 5 stars. Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Neil Young, Radiohead....

It's like Herbie Hancock winning a grammy. Okay, sure, but nobody listens to it, so who cares? I'll bet more people listen to Miley Cyrus a day than Radiohead.

Hey GAC, I think Badfinger was gonna be the next Beatles too. Oh well. Everyone wants the next big thing yet they can't let go of the past.

I remember when I first heard "Day After Day" on the radio I thought it was the Beatles.

A reporter once asked the Beatles what was the secret to their success. I think it was Lennon who responded that if they knew that they go find four guys and become their managers. Of course they then founded Apple, and had artists like Mary Hopkins, Black Dyke Mills Band, Elephants Memory, White Trash. Other then helping James Taylor, Badfinger was one of their more successful ventures.

The Offspring. That guy's voice is like an un-oiled band saw.

That would be my pick for the worst band in the history of earth to achieve a sustained level of popularity. Nothing remotely interesting about their music, and they should have been sued for ripping off the Beatles' Ob-li-di-ob-li-da.


Amy Winehouse.

I've seen your posts on the music-related threads and I think we usually have similar tastes, but I disagree with you on this one. I hate her "act," but love her voice, singing style, the band backing her up, and the arrangements of her songs.

Smash is one CD that I can listen to over and over again. Offspring has gotten more main stream and changed their sound now. Smash and to some extent Ixnay were a hard hitting mixture of punk/rock/grunge. Their later stuff sucks, but their early stuff was great.

They went weird for lack of a better description. They went Pretty Fly For a White Guy. They went from writing songs to writing catchy jingles. I think its different than most of your detested bands but to be honest other than 3 Doors Down I haven't listen to more than a full CD of your detested bands in quite a while.

I actually don't even listen to the radio much anymore. It still plays some decent stuff from time to time, but between commercials and the amount of garbage on there, it's not worth the time unless I flip it on and get lucky.

I've become mostly a singer-songwriter kind of music fan now. Lots of not-so-well-known guys out there are producing really great stuff on their own, plus when they come to town for shows you can get in for about $15 or less (sometimes free).

I think most of the Offspring's stuff is still more hard rock than anything. It's just they have been mixing in radio friendly hits since Americana that suck (Pretty Fly, Why Don't You Get a Job, Want You Bad and that awful new ballad). That new Hammerhead song is pretty good IMO.

Oh gosh, how could I forget this one: John Mayer.

He reminds me of that guy in high school who couldn't get a date until he learned how to play the guitar. Oh look at me, I'm brooding, I'm sensitive, I play a musical instrument. Here, let me move my Star Wars dolls so you can sit on my bed. Let me write some syrupy crap so you will be seduced by me.

And Prince. You can call him a genius, great artist, and we can debate that until the cows come home. I'd say he is one of the most overrated artists out there.

But one thing we can agree on is this: If Prince went to your high school, he would have been severely beaten every day by the third period shop class.

I can't say there is anyone I can't stand.

There are songs/artists/genres that I prefer, some that I've grown tired of, some that I've never gotten tired of, some I used to like but don't now, some I didn't used to like but do now, some that I tune out, some I say "what is that?", but nothing that gets a real visceral I-hate-this rise out of me. I get something out of every song I hear. Some a lot, some not much at all.

You see, this is the voice of age and "mellowing" talking.

It's like with women. The older you get, the better they ALL look and if they ask..."would you?", you say "yeah...why not?"(if I had the strength).

I'm like Roy. I like a lot the stuff people are hating here, like Offspring, and AC/DC and even Coldplay, Nickelback, Fall Out Boy, Backstreet Boys and even S Club 7 (at times).

But GAC is right about Little River Band. Help was never on the way for them.

Nickelback, of course. "Here's a song with sexual innuendo...Like it? He's another one. Like that one? Here's 12 more with the same riff." It's disappointing, because the guy has a really good voice for a rocker.

Macy Gray. Her stuff could be the best ever for all I know, I can't listen to it. That voice is like nails on a chalkboard.

The Doors (ducks to avoid flying shoes). It's not logical whatsoever because I can't really name an actual reason, but I can't listen to their music. At all.

Steve Perry is listed in the top 100 singers of all time, ranked by surveying music industry people.

Sure, Prince is higher on that list, but Perry being on it shows that I would not be alone in thinking the gap is a bit smaller than the one you propose.

Corporate rock is fun to make fun of, but Perry is considered by many to be the best voice of the past 30 years, and for me, he's a better vocalist than Prince. The music may not be your cup of tea, but Perry's range goes into the highest register for males.

Especially political messages. I listen to music for a good time mostly and love most of what has been listed here.

However a few exceptions... Madonna, Whinehouse, Fiona Apple, Courtney Love all are repulsive people and artists too me although the young Madonna (like a virgin version) I did like at one time. Smashing Pumpkins & Korn I really don't care for. I used to not care for U2 or INXS but with age I guess I do appreciate them a little more somehow, but just for their actual sound not the "message".

Rockers who i knew in the 80's.....had an dislike for Prince....based on the fact...that he was black, so therefore he could not be a rocker (HOW is that for irony)

While i love hard rock...classic rock... there is a lot of ignorance when it comes to some of these followers. Black guys don't rock....and if there is any funk involved (Like Stevie Wonder's stuff in the mid 70's) then it sucks.

Forget that the groove Bonham and JPJ used was based not only on the blues but a lot of stuff they borrowed from 70's funk.

There was one station out here in LA who would rather play Billy Joel's "Piano Man" and then call it classic rock....while being aghast that Prince's "Let's Go Crazy" actually went to Number 1 over "Born in the USA"....I mean really? How ignorant can you be?

NOW i understand why Prince can be disliked..... His antics...ego...but his musical talent is hard to deny. If you wanted him to make a good hard rock album for you...he could do it better than most people out there.
But hey....to my former metal friends of the 80's (I was a punker myself)....Quiet Riot...Posion...Ratt....."They blow the doors off anything that little purple freak can do."

My problem with him isn't his talent as a musician, it's as a songwriter.

The lyrics to "Little Red Corvette" sound like something a high school guy from New Richmond would have written in the late 70s. That song could have taken place in the backseat of one of John Coyne's junkers.

I can see where people like the music- I was a huge fan at one point- but all this talk about genius over a song like "Purple Rain" or "Let's Go Crazy" or "1999," and you start to think that hey, maybe even John Mayer is a genius. Maybe I'm one, too.

Again, "When Doves Cry" is an incredible, incredible song, but the rest of the catalog is just pretty decent pop/R&B.

If Prince is a genius, so are The Goo Goo Dolls.

The comment about Mellencamp is spot on. I could probably sit down with him and agree on a good portion of what he stands for, but when you sing, put a pipe in it. I always feel sorry for people who buy tickets to his shows and have to sit there and listen to anything other than music.

Tony Cloninger
03-20-2009, 11:47 PM

A local pub I used to hang out in had a fellow patron that was one of the girls in the "Hurts So Good" video where Mellencampwas walking down a street and had two biker girls under his arms. She told me he was one of the biggest asses she ever met.

A guy that works for us used to cater events he had at his house in Bloomington. Johnny had a clause in his contract that if you looked at him or gawked at him you would be removed from the site. The funny thing is the clown acts like he is such a supporter if the American worker.

I could get into more things about why I despise him but its "Peanut Gallery" material.

I like all different kinds of music, but for some reason I can't stand Joe Jackson.
Down dooby doody wop a dooby wop a doody wop!

I guess I'm just really tolerant. I can find something likeable in almost all music. The only exception that comes to mind is Tiny Tim...I never liked anything about that freak and still cannot find anything to like about him except that he's gone. Um...yea, like I said, really tolerant. http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-fc/dunno.gif (http://www.freesmileys.org)

C'mon Dom - you know very well I'm an old fart. I started this thread for people to list artists/songs that one simply hated and/or drove them nuts. It's not limited to any particular time frame, or what is currently playing. I really don't know any current music. That is how dated I am. Or call it the "generational gap". I do like to listen to an FM station out of the Dayton/Springfield area because it plays rock and pop music from the last few decades. You'll hear everything from U2 to Three Dog Night. And I did hear the song a few weeks ago while driving to work.

But it's more about songs that one recalls or remembers then what they have currently heard and/or are listening to.

I guess I need some more older folks to weigh in because there are many examples of these types of artists and songs back when AM radio reigned. ;)

Yikes! It's now screeching around my skull like a recently released rabid rat and I can't get rid of it! Owwww, owww, owww.....

Well, since we're bringing up "Brand New Key", what about "Loving You" by Minnie Ripperton?

I remember "Brand New Key" and "Loving You," and, yes, I hated both songs.

That's too bad. When I hear "Brand New Key," I think about Heather Graham in "Boogie Nights."

And when you think of Heather Graham it's always a good thing. A great thing, even.

And my apologies to any member of the board who is offended that I find Miss Graham attractive. :)

I hope you burn for bringing this song up. Took me years of hypno-therapy to get it dislodged from my brain.

I'm gonna have to put Nugent's "Wango Tango" in the car CD and crank it up! The only way I can exorcise that demon. :D

So I was thinking about this thread long and hard the other night, and started making a list. I was pondering posting it until I realised it would go 50+ deep, with ease.

I'm a hater I guess.
