    I'm with you. I give Beck a pass, but I just can't sit there and listen to him for very long. And BTW I'm all set with Tal Wilkenfeld too. Joe Satriani, like Malmsteen, is one of those guitarist's guitarist kind of guys and, as such, are usually boring to me. Malmsteen has the additional detriment of being the south end of a northbound horse.

    Metallica, The Who, The Doors, U2, Rush, there are probably some more but those are at the top of the list.

    The Smiths. God, what bloody depressing music. And why the hell does his guitarist get so much praise for his playing?

    This list here. Except for some Bruce and a bunch of Bowie that are good.

    After hearing all about Johnny Marr I listened to some Smiths for the first time, and thought it wasn't bad at all. Then I started paying attention to the lyrics, maybe at the wrong time, and that was more than enough thanks.

    I do listen to Marr's solo albums from time to time since they're available on Amazon Prime.

    Yeah that's a little odd.

    Apparently the song that stopped me in my tracks was on "Hatful of Hollow" because that's the only Smiths album in my Prime history.

    Foo Fighters. Try as I might , I just can't see what's so great about these guys. Grohl seems like an excellent dude, and loved Nirvana. Go figure.....

    Prefer my toast with just butter - no Jam for me, thanks. Another member on a different thread said of Paul Weller's singing ' being shouted at by a drunk white van driver.'

    Genesis- pretentious nonsense.

    Steely Dan (should be put back where W.S.Burrough's original 'Steely Dan' was intended to go).

    Early (Syd-era) Pink Floyd - more pretentious nonsense.

    Captain Beefheart - yet more pretentious nonsense.

    Deep Purple's lyrical content ruins many a good album for me - because it's..........pretentious nonsense!


    That said, I really loved the Darkness' first album - because it was pretentious nonsense.

    Go figure...

    I just can't relate to any music or really find it enjoyable. The one good thing about the band is Kurt's signature Jaguar. That's where the praise stops. The lyrics are mostly inaudible, and when you go google search them it's all inane garbage. The music itself is rather plain, and I don't know why they are so credited for, "changing the face of music" when in fact they inspired more emos to screech inaudible trash through mind-numbingly distorted power chords.

    Just my opinion though... haha.

    I don't like most rock bands from the mid-late 70's up until the early-mid 90's. I like many of the bands before/since.

    Bob Dylan has to be one of the worst singers ever recorded.

    Neil Young has a few VERY good songs, but the breadth of his work is truly awful.

    Metallica seriously lost something fundamental with Cliff's passing (RIP). They sound nothing like they did with him at all. It's like their soul died with him.

    AC/DC post Bon Scott sounds identical album to album. Why buy their new album when I already have their last one? Seriously... How anyone can get excited over a new DC album is beyond me. With Scott they were something special, tho.

    I could also mention Rage Against the Machine. I don't know that I SHOULD like them, but I do know that I loathe them with every fibre of my being. They are truly migraine-inducing on a Lil' Wayne level.

    Just my humble opinion.
