    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.

    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

    Re: Artists You Simply Cannot Stand

    Oh boy, this could get interesting. I'll go with pretty much the entire post-grunge genre. Who would have though something worse than nu metal was to follow?

    Creed
    Hinder
    Shinedown
    Seether
    3 Doors Down
    Staind
    Breaking Benjamin
    Puddle of Mudd
    Three Days Grace
    Matchbox Twenty
    Godsmack
    Saliva
    Buckcherry

    And of course...

    Nickelback

    Nickelback tops my list followed closely by Panic at the Disco and Fall Out Boy
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Panic at the Disco is a joke but I have to be honest--I kinda like Take This to Your Grave by Fall Out Boy. Anything after that and yes can't stand it...

    Fine Young Cannibals
    Katy Perry

    There's a lot I can't stand, but those two immediately came to mind.

    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.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Nickelback. Hands down. I hate them with a passion. They suck.

    Fiona Apple, Alanis Morrissette, and any other female belonging to the "One guy mistreated me so therefore all guys must be scum!" genre. I have to immediately change the station any time those two start to play.

    Re: Artists You Simply Cannot Stand

    I have a hard time coming up with artists that I loathe because they're just not on my mind. But I can truly say I hate Dave Matthews and I can trace it back to the very moment I first heard "Crash into me".

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

    Because they are completely unoriginal?

    The only band that really bugs me when they come on the radio is Incubus. Can't stand his voice.
