Thank you. I thought I was alone.
You are not alone brother, and in unison we shall hate Bruce Springsteen. That said, I have a Frankie Goes To Hollywood greatest hits and they do Born To Run
and it's actually pretty good.
And I fucking hate Bruce Springsteen. The ''Boss'. Boss of what?
The Boss of Boring. </FLUSH>
No shit, they are literally the kings of cocksuck. I know many people love them all these decades but I always wished they would go away, which they never did. They are corny as it gets and they are gross as fuck. The Cult could totally blow those ugly fucksticks away with just a walmart hoodie and only half a tambourine.
I think the demise of pop music can be traced to Aerosmith doing that cross-over rap song.
As much as I hate Aerosmith and think they are corny as fuck (as well as being in desperate need of facial transplants), I did like that Run DMC album a lot in 1986 and it was a gateway for me in terms of finding new music on my own. I would not have spent the past 30 years listening to and collecting and following and playing what I do now if I didn't buy that Raising Hell
cassette when I did in 1986. Within a year I discovered Public Enemy and within 2 years was into hardcore punk music and American thrash metal and was consuming it like crazy by 1988. From that point I got into bands like Danzig who was only just starting up with the blues metal thing after a decade of more campy type stuff, but that band alone immediately took me backwards to Willie Dixon and Howlin' Wolf and people like that, plus Orbison and Cash who at this time were becoming relevant again, possibly more so than when they were in their prime.
How about all the shoe-gazing mope-rock bands of the early/mid-90's. I honestly can't remember any of their names, just their blurry slo-mo videos and overwrought lyrics.
Yes, fuck them all. And their flipside counterparts, uppity ska revival bands. </FLUSH x2>
U2 is shit
Indeed. And phony as fuck with their amnesty/we give a shit
PS: what was with that Lemon
I still like Jesus and Mary Chain
I like the stuff they did with the girl from Mazzy Star.
any boy band ever artificially manufactured.
I agree. But do the Sex Pistols count? And what about The Monkees?
I usually avoid personal comments here but you seem like a very unhappy man.
Whether or not I am miserable doesn't have much to do with the topic or my post. This isn't psychology class or depression diagnostics is it? If I was miserable, would it really matter? This is a lite thread with tongue-in-cheek comments about the bands we hate. It's the Deathrace2000 of threads. I was not being nasty, just direct. There is no reason to sugar coat anything, people dislike certain bands and that is fun and normal. That said, I am indeed miserable. But to me this thread is an escape from the reality of my misery and does not actually represent my miserableness as it is mostly just for fun. I am being honest and truly do not like any of the bands that I have cited.
I don't actually wish any misery or depression on any of those bands, I just hate them and pretend that they don't exist. I hate Stone Temple Toilets, but I would actually have preferred to have seen the singer survive the battle with himself. He was one unhappy camper. If I were as unhappy as him I would have beat him to the funeral home and done a better job of doing it, I would have made a fucking mess and had somebody else clean it up. Now that is misery. Atleast he didn't have somebody scrape his skull off the ceiling, so he is somewhat considerate in that aspect, and I am not sure if I am as courteous. I am unhappy and am very busy in life, therefore have no time for shitty music polluting my ears. Shitty music makes me violent and even more unhappy than my natural state of unhappiness and general dissatisfaction.
The diverse range of bands that I do like greatly outnumber the ones that I dislike. Plus I could write for days about each band that I do like while trying to lay out all of the infinite reasons as to why I think they are great. But it's not that kind of thread -- It's a hater thread!
I hate the bands I listed. I don't like the music and I can't stand the people in the bands. Many will disagree and that is life.
I am very opinionated about music. Some of my favorite popular bands are Black Sabbath, ABBA, Queen, X, Loretta Lynn, Kate Bush, Phil Collins, Judas Priest, Bad Brains, and Public Enemy. I think The Smiths are great and I wish I could write songs like that, but I can't. I can accept if people don't like them. It doesn't mean I cannot like the people that dislike the Smiths, it just means that they hate the Smiths.
Many hate ABBA but I think they are absolutely genius. Maybe the best pop band ever IMO. I am not going to be offended if somebody wishes they were dead. That just means at one point or another they had them shoved down their throat, probably when the same 14 songs were on loop for an 8 hour shift at a job and Dancing Queen was hurled at them 3-4 times a night against their will. That song totally misrepresents the band anyways. But all that said, Play Jimi Hendrix or Lenerd Skynarard around me and I might kick your balls in. I used to hate Judas Priest until I was in my late 20s or mid 30s, but now I love JP although they do have some shitty stuff in their back catalog which I think is disgusting and gross, but when they are good it totally outshines their shitty shit. The guitar work is phenomenal especially on the Painkiller and SFV albums. I grew up with Love Bites on the TV and whenever I saw it I would be like these guys fucking suuuuuuuuck
. Today I blame media and not the band, as I was deceived all those years and exposed to only JP's shittiest shitty songs and videos. I have since watched their sets at US Festival 1983, Live Aid in 1985, and Irvine Meadows in 1991 and regret my previous opinion about them being corny and lame.
I have quit 2 jobs over the insane music repeatedly jammed down my fucking throat all god damn day long so I can relate to certain forms of hatred. CCR are still banned from my god damn ears. The Eagles just entered probation after a 22 year ban from my fucking ears. Previous job caused all this in the first place.
There is somebody I know who cannot stand The Tide Is High remake by Blondie. I love it as well as all of the original albums by Blondie until they broke up, but this person gets violent and clockwork orange if that song comes on, and they hate all Blondie songs no matter what because of it. They worked at a bank in the 80s and the song was played all the time, several times a day... Janet Reno pulled this shit at Waco... MK Ultra is easier done than explained.
Plus, he's one of the only cool Canadians on here.
There are no cool Canadians except for HOG.
He's a shoe-in for OSOM Thread Hall-of-Fame, Canadian Division, for several classic rants there.
19.5 can sometimes bring out the best in us. That thread had (and continues to have) more substance month after month than the actual show material did.
