    Yeah, I'm going to second this position. My Princeton Chorus sounds sterile and dry - I leave the chorus on to bring a bit of depth and un-sterilize the sound a bit.

    Chorus: Guns n' Roses - Paradise City (occasionally their version of Knocking on Heaven's Door)

    flange: on the rare occasion that I use it, it's usually for a Van Halen song

    Vibrato/tremolo: Radiohead - Creep

    Rotary: Stevie Ray Vaughan - Cold Shot, Nirvana - Come As You Are

    Zombie thread, I know, but hey what the heck, I've been playing with Chorus a lot lately so:

    - Walking on the Moon / Every Breath / Message in a Bottle
    - Run to You
    - Purple Rain
    - Echo Beach
    - Paradise City
    - The final bit in Under the Bridge ("yeeeeh, yeeeeh, yyeeeiiih, yeeeiiihhh, under the bridge downtown....")
    - White Wedding
    - Bigmouth Strikes Again
    - Brass in Pocket / 2,000 Miles
    - Intro to She Sells Sanctuary
    - Here Comes the Sun
    - Come As You Are
    - Don't Fear the Reaper

    There's probably a few more.

    I couldn't have said it better.

    I love most modulation effects--tremolo, vibrato, Leslie, phase shifter, flanger...but chorus is a big, uppercase Nope.

    I have spent the last ten years trying to wean myself off the chorus pedal.
    I have largely succeeded.
    Largely.
    I grew us listening to EJ, and his TC Chorus pedal.
    I liked it.
    A lot.
    Now I only use chorus on 80s stuff.
    I use it on one of Audrey’s songs, her power ballad.
    Anways, I try to only use it for spice.

    I know what you mean, I went through a period of deep dislike of the effect after the 'Great 80s Chorus Hangover'...

    But now, I'm really enjoying the cheese... :p
