I will assume this is satire, based on all the “Am I The Only One Who..." series of threads. If you are serious: It's OK if you don't like those artists...to each his own. But to say they have no talent or that they're "hacks“? Ridiculous. Case in point: I dislike 90% of Prog-rock music...overblown drivel and boring crap, IMHO. I also detest 90% of folk music. However, I know that 99.99% of those guys/gals could out-play and/or out-write me with one hand tied behind their collective back(s). So...I don't like Prog-rock and Folk, but I wouldn't be so ridiculous to call them talentless hacks.
