Title: Bands/Artists That You Never Really Could Get Into
Post by: diamondwaspvenom on July 29, 2011, 08:43:22 AM
You hear someone, possibly one of your friends (if any  :tongueout: :teddyr:) constantly praise a certain band/artist. They go on and on about how great they are and that you should check them out. When you finally give in and listen to the songs, you can't help but feel unimpressed no matter how many times you attempt to enjoy the material. Maybe you like one or two songs, but the rest bore you to tears?

We've all gone through it and we all have some bands/artists that we could never get into.

Here are mine:

Van Halen
Skepticism
Darkthrone
Vlad Tepes
Satanicum Tenebrae
Behemoth
Post Chris Barnes-era Cannibal Corpse
Deicide
Possessed

Yours?

Dream Theater
The Strokes
U2
Bob Dylan
Radiohead
The Smiths
The Jam
Rolling Stones
REM
Pearl Jam

wouldn't be surprised if that reads like someone else's Top 10 bands ever. these bands do nothing for me, been subjected to hours or in some cases years of abuse to the ears from most of these. my girlfriend at school was obsessed with The Smiths and Paul Weller, and for a couple of years I lived next door to Dream Theater's biggest fan in the world or something

I can never get into any alt or grunge bands. All my friends love that kinda music, but I guess the only band I've found kinda decent is Alice in Chains.

haha, yeah it got to the stage where I knew what songs followed on from what others on which albums just from hearing it through the wall!. the thing is they're amazing musicians, it's just the actual music I can't get into...

Bands/artists I couldn't (still can't) get into or see the overall appeal of:
Led Zeppelin
U2
Madonna
Cream
Eric Clapton
Rod Stewart
Grateful Dead
Fleetwood Mac.

I'm sure there's others, but these ones off the top of my head are ones I really can't stand.

Personally I feel that Alice in Chains has the best overall output of that whole Seattle/early mid-'90s Alt/Grunge/Seattle type of scene, when compared to Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, etc.

A lot of Classic rock really doesn't get any kind of reaction from me along with Grunge. I don't even like that phrase classic rock very much, especially when used as a genre. (For example what does Bon Jovi and Black Sabbath have to do with each other) but I do like some Older Rock, mostly the progressive kind. Its just really 90 percent of the stuff on Classic rock radio is garbage that people view with rose tinted nostalgia goggles.

Sorry just ranting here. :bouncegiggle:

I like old rock, but you are quite right about classic rock becoming such a broad category that it's lost much of its meaning. Maybe I'm getting old, but I have, on a number of occasions, done a double take at what someone has classified as classic rock.

Classic Rock was a good term when rock and roll was only a few decades old, and what would be called just plain "rock" might have been around for a couple of decades. The term worked well enough when applied to something like 70s-vintage Aerosmith in the early 90s. It was basically a blanket term for rock of the late 60s and the 70s. The problem is that after 20 more years, it's encompassing things that were new or as-yet-unreleased when I was into "classic rock." Some of it is radically different, and wasn't even liked much by fans of the older classic rock, at least not the fans I knew. People are now lumping 90s grunge and alternative into the classic rock category, and even stuff as recent as the early 2000s, and it's only going to get broader and vaguer and more meaningless with time.

And I agree that a lot of classic rock radio is garbage. It has the same problem as classic rock compilation CDs - you get the same overrated, overplayed hits, over and over again, selected by people who really don't know the music or give a sh!t, to please the largest number of people with the least effort possible. Over two or three decades, there is a wealth of bands, albums and songs, including many great songs that never seem to get played. Listening to classic rock radio, you'd think some of the most prolific bands of the last 50 years only had a couple of albums and a handful of great songs.

I'll try and keep this short and simple as I could go on for pages in this thread. Considering my massive obsession with rock/metal from the early 70s through to the early 90s, I have never been able to enjoy the music of some of the most well respected and influential bands during that period and those are:

AC/DC - I think they're good, but every song seems the same to me. Plus it's simple by-the-numbers three chord rock that a ton of other bands have copied and improved in my opinion such as; Cinderella, Dirty Looks, Circus Of Power, Kix and Jackyl.

Aerosmith - I like 70s Aerosmith and the Done With Mirrors album from '85 and that's it. People are always surprised when I say that I can't stand 80s Aerosmith. I just don't hear a dirty rock n' roll band anymore, I hear no guitars, too many synths, and vocals like a cat choking on pieces of chalk. They were a good band who fell apart, were resurrected by crossing genres and being original and then fell in line with everyone else milking the ballad cow.

Rush - I love guys with really high pitched vocals, but Geddy Lee's just doesn't do it for me. All excellent musicians don't get me wrong but I find it hard to like bands and remember songs when every track they make is about 7+mins long!

Bon Jovi - Hate. Surprised faces all round when I tell people that, again considering my love of all things glammy, pouffy and cheesy.  I loathe their simple, bland early stuff and I despise their new stuff. It's all just obvious corporate rock made  for the sole purpose of obtaining more and more money.

I'll leave it at that for now, but I'll also say that I could never get into Dream Theater. I like two songs; "Pull Me Under" and "Caught In A Web". I have no idea how they are even classed as "metal" ??

Agreed on Aerosmith, though I hung in with'em till the PUMP record (1990). That's a good commercial rock record. Then came GET A GRIP which sounded exactly like PUMP, you could almost hear'em in the studio saying "Hey guys, we sold a sh*tload of that record, let's do the exact same thing all over again!" Everything I've heard after that has been varying degrees of suck/borderline embarrassing.

Preach it brotha! Never could stand that band, and as a mostly proud resident of the Garden State I hate the fact that they're synonymous with "New Jersey" nowadays.

And you, my friend, don't know your ass from your elbow. 
I just never dug any of their songs.  Just not my 'cup of tea'.  And I don't want anyone thinking it's a generational thing where I dislike older music.  They're just a band I don't like, at all.  I'm not saying they're bad.  I just dislike their output.  Of that era, I prefer the likes of The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Iggy and The Stooges, Rush, Pink Floyd, etc.

Gotta remember, I'm more a 'punker' and like groups like Misfits, The Clash, Ramones, Black Flag, and other bands like ? and the Mysterians.

First time I saw her pic I was like "Hello? This is Cyndi Lauper and Grace Jones blended together. We've been there and done that already."
First time I saw her performing at some MTV show I was like "You got to be kidding me. Madonna did all this and did it much better 20 years ago."

I'm not a Led Zep fan at all, never been able to get crazy about them. But, and it's a BIG BUT, they are a great band featuring four phenomenal musicians. I can understand someone not liking them due to personal taste but yes, saying they are overrated is a bit much seeing how at their peak nobody around could touch them and the fact is they had a monstrous influence on every rock/metal band that came afterwards. My only gripe is, and maybe a reason why Happy made the comment he did is that, (over here especially) the Zep do get lauded over a bit too much. For instance, Mojo and Classi Rock magazine seem to do full issues sometimes 3 or 4 times a year dedicated to the Zep. How about digging up a band that didn't get the credit they deserved eh?

Well, I love Zep too, but I do kind of see them as the musical version of Speilberg/Lucas. Their work is great, they left an indelible mark, and they influenced so much that came afterwards. But yes, they do tend to be cannonized to a somewhat annoying level.

Anthrax - weird because they were part of the 'big four' of thrash and I always really liked Slayer Metallica and Megadeth (and still do even though I'm not really a metalhead as much as I used to be).

but Anthrax...I must've listened to at least 5 albums and can't even recall how a single tune goes! they never grabbed me tbh

Performance wise, yes, she's pays a lot of homage to her heroes like Madonna and Lauper.  Musically, she isn't so bad.  I've seen her with just a performance and a normal outfit, and she's got a decent voice and writes her own songs.  I think more people would like her if it weren't for her outrageous gimmicks and outfits.

I have a rare mid '80s cd put out by Howard Stern and the Stern Show crew.  Basically, one track is called "Neil Young's Cat" and it's a spoof of a Neil Young song, but sung by an alley cat stuck in a fance.

Eric Clapton.  I love bluesy guitar, he's supposed to be the "god" of bluesy rock guitar.  His music does absolutely nothing for me.  Oh some of the stuff with Cream was good, but his solo stuff leaves me completely unmoved. 

Bruce Springsteen - sounds like a pretty average pop act with a couple of catchy songs. 

Yngwie Malmsteen - virtuoso classical/metal guitarist.  I appreciate how many gazillions of hours he must have spent practicing that stuff, but it just sounds like he's running through his scales.  "I Am A Viking" is pretty cool though.  And he's always good for some entertaining quotes, my all-time favorite being when he said rap music was "the lowest form of $hit on earth"  :teddyr:

Well, I never said I felt that U2, Cream, Clapton, or Who are overrated.  Just Zeppelin.  I've heard a lot of Zeppelin.  Do NOT like them, but they have fans.  I respect that.  I'm not saying they're 'worthless'.  Just not the type of music I dig.  I have listened to all the bands I listed, and don't like em.

There's plenty of bands I like that people hate.  On a daily basis, when I take music to work, I'm told that the following suck and/or overrated:
Aerosmith
Elton John
Billy Joel
Queen
The Clash
The Ramones
The New York Dolls
Iggy and The Stooges
Black Sabbath
Weird Al Yankovic
The Cure
Devo

I'm also a huge fan of some of the classic rock and Motown groups of the '50s and '60s.  Like, The Ronettes, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Shirelles, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Bo Diddley, Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, etc. 


I'm not quite sure where you're going with your post.  I think we share a bit more taste in this department.  But, hell, Zeppelin, not my cup of tea.

I've previously stated my total disinterest in all things Dream Theater in this thread, but now that it's been bumped, I've thought of another semi-legendary metal band that has seemingly passed me by all these years: Fates Warning.

For whatever reason, much like D.T., FW and I have just never "clicked." I had a friend who, when he found out I was never a Fates Warning fan, burnt me copies of their entire discography so I could check them out, and ... I just wasn't feelin'em at all.

News recently broke that Fates Warning is about to release their first new album in a number of years, which was met with an absolute torrent of fanboy jizz on a couple of metal forums that I hang out on. Meanwhile, my reaction was "(Shrugs shoulders)"....

Unlike BEATLE hating, which is willful posturing (in my opinion) I could see where anyone might not like THE ROLLING STONES.  However, I think it's just ignorant (and I choose my word carefully, as in "without knowledge").  Same with NEIL YOUNG.  I LOVE THE ROLLING STONES and NEIL YOUNG.   All that said, I love DIANA ROSS... as a person and do not mind her solo records much, though I think, of the three SUPREMES, she was the least talented, and though I LOVE the girl groups, the exception is THE SUPREMES.  I can't stand 'em!!!

agree with you here. If all their songs sounded like 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' I would probably be a big fan, but nearly all their songs sound to me like some drunk guy mumbling and wailing while a garage band tunes up in a cellar!

Dream Theatre (so pretentious)
same problem for me. also they can do loads of ultra-complex stuff rhythmically...but musically they are really generic and safe. Always the same metal chord progressions or soppy power ballad tunes

Pearl Jam
I have tried and failed to listen to more than 3 tracks on 'Ten' and I can't do it. which is weird cause I really like a lot grunge. can't put my finger on why I dislike them so much...

can't agree with you on Pantera though... love them. :smile:

I personally have no clue how Sirius XM dedicates a channel to their music.

The band I could never 'get into' was The Beatles: I tried out as their drummer but Mr Epstein said I would be better at drumming on garbage cans in back alleys......  :wink: :wink:

Me either. I think I would prefer to hear the drumming on garbage cans.

Eric Clapton.  I love bluesy guitar, he's supposed to be the "god" of bluesy rock guitar.  His music does absolutely nothing for me.  Oh some of the stuff with Cream was good, but his solo stuff leaves me completely unmoved. 

"God" of bluesy rock guitar my aching ass. Hendrix, SRV, and Johnny Winter have far better claims to that throne than Clapton's ever had post-Are You Experienced.
Jello Biafra said in the 80's that  music you hear on the radio is the equivelent (I cant spell that f**king word!) of Bing Crosby elevator music.

Jello Biafra's got no room to talk about music. The Dead Kennedys were a terrible band.
Every band for the past 20 years. Nirvana included.
I don't have much good to say about the 80s either.
The Beatles, Sgt. Pepper's and forward.
Pink Floyd.
Metallica. Not even the Cliff stuff.
U2.
Led Zeppelin, to a point. I enjoy them, but I don't seem to get the mind blowing experience out of them that everyone else does.



Well well, aren't you just the world's most Beautiful Unique Snowflake.

- although to be honest if there's a lot of bands out there you don't like, this is probably the thread to let it be known  :drink:

Queen- I just really could not get into it.

Queen have a fair amount of songs I really like, and nearly all of them are the 'famous' ones. Also no matter how many times I hear it or how over-played it is, I seriously think Bohemian Rhapsody might be the greatest song ever written.  :buggedout:

BUT... their studio albums are very patchy. the famous tracks are famous for a reason IMO.
