Artists you can't stand
« on: March 15, 2011, 05:37:00 PM »
Pretty simple, pick an artist you hate and provide a brief explanation.


ie.


Joanna Newsom - Her voice reminds me of faux-antique stained glass, or maybe an the perfectly shitty storm of the voices of old women and young children. I'd rather listen to winter coats scraping frosty windows.

ohh greenland is a barren land
a land that bears no green
where there\'s ice and snow
and the whale fishies blooow
and daylights seldom seen

I'm pretty much the same with U2. It isn't even really that they rub me wrong, I think it is just that nothing of it rubs me right and they get hammered down my throat so hard. I never really liked them and they are basically forced on me from every angle by US media.

Also, I kinda feel like anyone who calls himself "The Edge" is a twat.

Journey.

I hate hate HATE stadium rock.  And to me nothing embodies that more then Journey's biggest hits.  It's just 100% cheese designed to get drunk people to sing along overly passionate and overly loud.  Now of course for all I know the rest of journey's albums could be chock full of good shit but you know what?  I don't give a fuck!  Fuck Journey

Sometimes I like the cheese of it all. It's almost like an inside joke that you're not quite sure if the band got or not. Stuff like this
[youtube:3cnqbah5]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_Bg03ERBa8[/youtube:3cnqbah5]

skip ahead. apparently they pulled everything but the extended off youtube. It's like it is so cheesy they are embracing it. Corny cliche lyrics and people trying to act like badasses. Not Journey, but exemplifies what I'm talking about.

Arcade Fire. Apart from 2 songs I liked, I've hated their stuff, and on top of that, they seem to be the most pretentious act out there.

Nah, I've just been too busy to list shit and explain it. Condensed:

Radiohead, Muse, Biffy Clyro, Aphex Twin, and probably some others that I can't remember right now - Bands that I find "meh", but everyone looks at me like I just raped their grandmother when I don't immediately start felating anything they do.

Most current indie bands that are rehashing shit from the '80s (The Smiths, Joy Division, New Order, blah blah blah).

Anything that fits under the heading of hair metal/glam metal/sleaze/whatever the fuck (with the exception of Skid Row and maybe a couple of others, who actually managed to release some actual metal at times). Pop music that gets called rock because it's played on guitars and has someone wanking during the middle 8. Universally liked by stupid people who think that it's the look and style that makes skanky women want the bands, rather than all the money and drugs.

Electronic music by artists who seem to think that they only need to have 30 seconds of music to make a song, interest can be achieved by dropping sections in and out, right? Hell, you don't even have to write the 30 seconds yourself!

Kings Of Leon.
Because their music is boring and bland and yet, for some reason, people build them up like they're this great rock band.
