Most of them?
First and foremost...Rush. I want to puke every time I hear just a snippet of one of their songs. Also U2 and The Who.
I don't like most of 'em, but the ones that really grate on me:
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Three Days Grace
System of a Down
I can't bring myself to be a Rush fan even though I love some of the riffs, I think it's Geddys vocals that turn me off?
I remember the band called Slade did this song in the seventies. Quiet Riot covered and ressurected the song later.
That's right, I had forgotten McLaren had briefly managed the by-then-inexorably entropic Dolls. The Pistols were kind of version 2.0 for him so, yeah, good call!
It's crazy to think how many bands came out of that Manchester show.
Duuno why, and I've tried, just ain't there.
Aerosmith after Done With Mirrors.
If you've tried fair enough but the album tracks are revelatory in a way the singles aren't.
I can't remember if I mentioned them before - all signs point to me liking Porcupine Tree, but for whatever reason, the connection just isn't there.
Kinda surprised to see the top 3 I don't like on so many other people's lists also.
Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Black eyed Peas
Led Zeppelin. But two songs, I do love: D'yer maker and All of my Love.
The only opinion that I care about is mine when it comes to music. If I like it great if not I don't listen or pay them any mind. Beyond that my opinion does not have an impact or whether something is acclaimed or not.
I like Led Zeppelin acoustic, never liked them electric.
Liked the Allmans. Duane died, band turned meh.
The Doors had a spooky glamor, but when the singer opened his mouth it all turned to pomp & melodrama.
Fleetwood Mac were great until Nicks & Buckingham arrived. Naturally, that's when they started selling big.
I'm from then, & we all —in my little clique, at least— thought of GFR as a joke.
The Eagles came off as petulant sophomore-seducing lounge lizards, except for Joe Walsh.
Black Sabbath! Oh, man. I hitched a ride a hundred some-odd miles back home from the 1971 (?) Newport Jazz Festival, where it went all tear gas & National Guard. It was in an army surplus 2.5 ton truck loaded with wailing hippies in the back. Up front was the driver, —toothless, bearded, wasted— & me. There was just enough floorboard to keep two feet lined up straight together, & no glass on my side of the split windshield. Up behind my left ear an 8-track played the same Black Sabbath album at top volume over & over & over & over & over again. So it kind of put me off them.
Can't think of any Metal that I actually like. Nor Prog Rock. Not much Southern Rock.
I like the Dead. Deadheads make me hunch my shoulders as if expecting something falling from above with a nails-on-blackboard screech.
I pretty much stopped paying attention in the '80s / '90s, so I can't rank out anyone past then.
Fleetwood Mac before Stevie Nicks and co. The older stuff was not very musical to my ears. Later they came up with killer hooks and melodies. As a guitarist, people tell me I should like the Peter Green era..... I don't.
