Case in point, not many people would deny that Mariah Carey can sing good, I would readily admit it, but I am a fan of her music? No? My point is that there is a difference between what you like, and what is "good music"

I like Kid Rock, and he is actually pretty talented. I don't think he is the best singer, or guitarist, or really anything, but I still like his music. You don't, so I guess that means he doesn't make "good music".

Kid rock is shit plan and simple, he makes boring generic music that sounds like lame rap over leonard skinard. Nobody here is guilty of snobbery.

Kid Rock doesn't really rap anymore. Rock n Roll Jesus had like what, one song where he "raps"? Honestly, the Red Hot Chili Peppers "rap" as much as Rock does these days. And, it's Lynyrd Skynyrd...you obviously don't know what you are talking about, but you're still alright

The fact that you think Kid rock makes boring generic music means I cant really take your opinion seriously. I mean different strokes for different folks, but talent is talent.

Either way I hate it, I hate the way he carries on, and why the heck did he have some mini me dude as a side kick?(,Joe C R.I.P.) I think kid rock is worse than Nickleback.

That song were he sings badly over a sample of Warren zevron's 'Werewolves of london', then it cuts into 'sweet home alabama', that's not talent its fucking awfull.

It's true.

Kid Rock is one of the most boring and talentless people in rock music the past 10 years or so.

Which.. if you humbly ask me, is a bunch of bullshit.

Granted, they have some great songs.. see Smells like Teen Spirit, and Heart Shaped Box for proof of this, but over all they're extremely over-rated. I'd rather listen to Pearl Jam any day of the week instead of Nirvana. Unless of course, it's Tori Amos' cover of Smells Like Teen Spirit. I freaking <3 that cover.
Um, I love Nirvana and I'm not of the lot that still holds onto the conspiracy theories or built a fuckin' shrine. But I enjoy Pearl Jam as well.

Not an opinion as much as fact, I know, but there is a certain misconception about Nirvana's history that has apparently originated from people who learn about bands off of T-shirts bought from Hot Topic and VH1 specials.
Bingo.


As for my list:


I don't care for KISS.

NOFX is unpleasant to listen to.

I just plain don't like Tool.



Not sure if I'm going to do this one right. (Tylenol PM hasn't worn off. )

Harrison > Lennon > Starr > McCartney

(I'm not sure but I think the general consensus is that Paul or John are usually at the top of the lists of "Favorite Beatle")

Pearl Jam has to be one of the most atrocious popular bands of the last 30 years. And their fans are all fratboy tools.

Dave Matthews Band fucking sucks too.

Coldplay as a band are wholly unbearable arena-femme dogshit.

If you think Nevermind > In Utero you're a moron.

Shitty metal (Slipknot, Disturbed, Godsmack and any number of the new "instrumental" metal bands) is just as shitty if not shittier than the shittiest emo.

The only good album Foo Fighters had was the first. It's only been hit and miss since then.

The last bearable thing the Chili Peppers did and will ever do was Californication.

Some people on this board have the fucking worst music taste I've ever encountered.

Alright, that sidekick you speak of was ten years ago. Not exactly a valid complaint. Now, I think Kid Rock's early stuff that was in the Limp Bizkit area (Devil Without a Cause, that terrible covers album) were pretty atrocious but hey, give credit where it's due, he's matured and grown into a pretty damn good songwriter, even if it's tough for you to get that image out of your head rapping about mushrooms and Deeeeee-troit with that little dude.

It's not music that will change the world, I acknowledge that, but as far as creating enjoyable, well-crafted Southernesque rock, I think he has now really silenced a lot of his critics, well the open-minded ones at least. Rock n' Roll Jesus is one of the best party albums to come out in a very, very long time, and it sounds to me like you're really not too well-versed in his recent stuff to be making those sorts of "He is worse then Nickelback" claims.

His new album isn't that good. It's a step up from the shit he used to make, but it's not that impressive. "Amen" is just awful.

neil is popular amongst all age groups in the north of england. he's a karaoke staple and pretty much everyone i know likes/loves him. it's an odd phenomenon. even my 10 year old nephew knows the lyrics to at least 3 or 4 of his songs.

i think his 2 most recent albums have been really great. i love the energy you mention...i love the jazz singer...his combover. i just heart neil for being one heck of a performer!

That's what's appealing about Diamond - His passion. He sings the shit out of everything.

16 Songs is a masterpiece, and probably one of the best albums of the past several years. "Hell Yeah" is gut wrenching.

I've actually subscribed on a craig's list to escort someone with an extra Diamond ticket for his local show here later this month since I can't afford a flat-out ticket. If I can find just one desperate housewife who is ticked about getting stood up for that date, I'll be gold.





Here's one I don't hear that often - Tweek's ranking of Beatles brought this to mind ----

All the best Beatles songs I've ever heard, I later discovered where actually Lennon's solo, post-Beatles work.

the following bands suck

placebo
iron maiden
metalica
the rolling stones (for the most part)
the offspring
greenday
radiohead
trivium
system of a down
lacuna coil
dragonforce
slayer
him



good bands/artists that most people hate


my chemical romance
panic at the disco
take that
fall out boy
nickleback
kanye west

bands that are underrated (from personal experience)

rise against
avenged sevenfold
madina lake
30 seconds to mars



imo

linkin park are the only rap/rock group that got it right

iron maiden and dragonforce are the two worst pieces of shit, i have ever had the displeasure of listening to

coldplay and radiohead both suck turd, though coldplay have released a semi-decent album (viva la vida)

90% of indie sux

90% of rap/hip-hop sucks. i do enjoy a few artists.

bands that only scream instead of actually sing, suck fucking balls.

Yeah, but we do! That's one of the many perks of life.

Here's an unpopular opinion: I have never taken Metallica seriously. I can listen to the first album on a jokey level, but I just can't take it seriously at all. Hetfield's voice always gave the band this extra cheesy sound. He's a terrible singer... I know metal isn't known for good vocals, but come on, Ozzy was great with Sabbath and Mike Patton is a versatile performer who can do the best growls as well as croon. That and Lars Ulrich is the most overrated drummer of all time. He ain't shit without a double-bass peddle. Proof? Look up his shitastic solo on youtube. Just terrible.

I usually "discover" bands long before anyone else. I can predict - uncannily -who is and who isn't going to be successful at least 6 months before anyone I know has ever heard of them. Then...

...once they become famous, I am duty bound to disdain the band forever. I swear, I just dump them like they were Jennifer Aniston. I deny any knowledge of ever having liked them. Know why? I'm a fucking snob. I hate populist music - aside from a few notable exceptions - and would rather admit to wanking over picture of Martin Short than listen to the bands again.

Case in point:

Kaiser Chiefs
The Fratellis
Kasabian

And here is the big secret: Most of you also feel that you also discover bands and that they belong to you and you alone. Fame is an act of betrayal.

P.S Red Hot Chilli Peppers are the new U2 - and both suck equal amounts of ass drip.

Uh pretty sure you called all Pearl Jam's fans frat boy douchbags. That would qualify as mocking.

You also claimed anybody who prefers Nevermind over In Utero is a moron.

Unpopular, maybe, but not totally unique. If you look through my posts in this forum, you will see that we have the same position, one I've maintained for 25 years. I've hated those guys since they were pizza faced teenagers with an EP, and the main reason is that clod Hetfield. Their covers of Whiskey In The Jar and Turn The Page are just beyond wretched.

To be fair, metal really isn't known for good vocals. That's an opinion that most people who aren't fans of metal hold, or so I've found from my own personal experience. It may be a misconception, I'm not saying the subgenre isn't full of great vocalist, just that that's not what it's known for.
