    Re: Artists You Simply Cannot Stand

    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.

    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.

    Not a big fan of classic rock. I am warming up to it a little bit but not much.
    I'm not much of a classic rock fan either, but Zep and Hendrix are probably my two favorite...

    I saw Captain Beefheart as the opening act for Jethro Tull's "Thick as a Brick" tour back in '71.

    He got all upset at the sound system in the middle of the set and stopped the show until they got it where he wanted it.

    I think "Tropical Hot Dog Night" by Captain Beefheart is one of the greatest songs ever written. I love Van Vliet.

    Re: Artists You Simply Cannot Stand

    This is a funny thread. It really is interesting to see how peoples musical tatses differ.
    I am fairly music tolerant but a couple that I just can't stand are Pink and freakin Macy Gray. That song she had a few years back made me want to drive off a cliff.

    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.

    Re: Artists You Simply Cannot Stand

    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.

    It's about
    the ball,
    the bat,
    the mitt,
    the bases,
    and the fans

    I must admit, I had an Archies LP growing up! Yes, I the later purchased it on CD as well. I actually dig some of those songs I think the rest of my commentary belongs in one of those threads about bands/songs you are somewhat ashamed about liking!!!

    The Rolling Stones and The Eagles are automatic stations turns for me.
