Yeah, I guess. Can't get into them though. I've tried.
I bonked my head in learning Highway Star in my early 20's... The lyrics were pretty stupid. An eight year old kid could have wrote that. So, I listened more extensively to a bunch of Deep Purple lyrics... It was really awful, lol.
Can't believe I left da Nuge off my previous screed.
I'll add Toby Keith, Davis Allen Coe and Hank Williams Jr. to my, uh, Cavalcade Of Stars.
Doobie Brothers, Willie Nelson, and The Who, don't know exactly why, they just don't work for me.
Yea..Springsteen, U2, Beatles,
Pink Floyd after Meddle
Tedeschi Trucks (liked each before collaboration) now, not so much
The first band that comes to mind for me is Rush.
If I'm in the middle of nowhere and can only pick up one radio station, and that one radio station plays a Rush song, I would turn the radio off before I listen to that song.
Guns and Roses
Pink Floyd for me. Pink Floyd. Pink Floyd. And Pink Floyd. Also novacaine.
Don't know about "should like" but here's a couple:
Extremely flawed thread title. There is no such thing as bands you should like.
The title should simply be "Bands you don't like"...
I've never understood the appeal of U2, but hate is too strong a word. I reserve that for the egregious ABBA, who I define as 'tinnitus set to a cynical beat'. OMG those two bloody awful screeching women with their tinny, nasal voices - I'd rather listen to the noise of a dentist's drill... WHEN IT'S IN MY MOUTH!
I'm not very keen on saying stuff that might be seen as dissing other musicians but as soon as I saw the thread title I thought of Brooce. Surprisingly I didn't have to wait long for someone else to mention him! I dislike his voice, the overblown arrangements and whilst his lyrics might be some kind of American working class poetry as I've no idea what he is mumbling on about it is all lost on me. Clearly lots of other people love him so I know it's just my perspective/ears.
Right, I'll go get my bullet proof vest on
I don't like the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin. I know, heresy, right?
The Stones music has just never held my interest for more than a few bars and Zeppelin is so tinny that it gives me a headache very quickly.
I'm a heretic. What can I say?
The Who and the Rolling Stones for me. A couple of years ago I game them a serious try, but I just can't connect. Maybe because I've been bombarded by one or two of their same songs on the radio for 40+ years that in my mind they are a parody of themselves.
I agree that it's not good to like something because you feel you should. That's why I've never understood why people insist on trying to convince me, like with PowerPoints and sales figures and whatever, that I should like the Beatles. And I think the thread has generally gone the way you've described- bands that lots of people like that you don't like.
But I thought the point of this thread was to list bands that seem like they ought to be right up your alley but then aren't, and it seems a little weird and maybe hard to figure out why.
I thought of another one- Megadeth. I love Metallica, Anthrax, and Slayer, and don't care for much of Megadeth.
- Springsteen, after the first 2 album's. (I guess I don't like the E-Street Band?)
- Pink Floyd. A bit too "spacey" for me.
- Led Zeppelin. (Grew tired of em'.)
- Stones. (I still love the early stuff up until "It's only Rock N Roll." After that they lost something...)
- Stevie Ray... wailin' away till the cow's come home.
Actually, I grew tired of most band's that I loved in the 60's and 70's. I mostly listen to old 30's to 60's Blues by the real guy's; or Classic Jazz, by the real guy's. Some Trad. Folk/Bluegrass Acoustic stuff, Old Timey Country... and World Music, too.
That one is actually a cover - originally done by Slade.
Guns & Roses
