    The classic band you can't stand the most

    I was kicking this thread idea around and WOY's vocal hatred of Foreigner in another thread convinced me it was time to post this. Feel free to branch out beyond '70s and '80s rock, though make sure you pick someone from a genre you at least like a little. For instance, if you hate rap then don't roll in here complaining about Run DMC.

    I'm going with Styx. Always hated them. They're bad Showtunes Rock. Used to bust on people for liking them. Broke up with two different girls because Styx was an irreconcilable difference. And they've only gone downhill for me with the passage of time. It's fun to make Mr. Roboto jokes, but the song itself blows chunks. By the late '80s, my searing disapproval felt vindicated in that you rarely heard them on AOR stations. Other of their contemporaries would still get a spin, but the DJ class seemed to clue in that Styx sux.

    Surely we've got some Styx fans here, and I'm sorry to inform you that you're wrong. They're pure dreck. Make better decisions. Anyway, unleash the hatred. Because surely Styx isn't the only band that needs a spanking.

    I am not a fan of The Eagles. Some of their songs are good, but most just sounds like crappy country songs to me.

    The Eagles. A puddle of mediocrity.

    ZZ Top was incredible, however.

    I often say "I love The Eagles," then search their catalog for stuff to listen to and...it's hard to find something.

    Lyin Eyes, Take it to the Limit, One of These Nights. Maybe a few off The Long Run.

    Journey is the band for me. Steve Perry’s voice was like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. And then they got imitators. Bleah.

    Good thread. I agree with with M2 about Styx. Never been a big fan. Mr Roboto...are you freaking kidding me?

    I'm gonna go with ZZ TOP. Wouldn't go outside in my backyard to hear them. In fact, I'd call the law on them if they were in my yard.

    Grateful Dead and Phish.

    I've tried to get into both bands multiple times. I don't hate their music, but I also don't enjoy it at all.

    And I do like other "jam" bands, just not those two.
