I mean, I'm sure they like them more than the average listener for the simple fact that they created them, but after playing the same setlist(most bands) nearly every/every other night don't you think they would get sick of their own music. I'm surprised this hadn't occurred to me until now, but even my favorite bands I don't think I could listen to their music that much.

Especially when they have a few REALLY BIG hits, and they play them at every gig throughout their entire career.

I'm not in a band so I wouldn't know, but what about you guys?

They sure do.

I believe Madonna said something like she'd only perform "Like a Virgin" again for 10 million bucks.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Sure. I've been sick of some of my own songs and I'm sure other artists feel the same way, just as people get sick of other songs.
#10
If you look at the profiles of band's members on last.fm, usually they play their own songs the most and quite regularly as well. So they probably do all the time, it depends on what kind of people they are and if they suck.

Indeed, now if only she would get similarly sick of everything else she has produced we might be getting somewhere

One of the guitarists in my band, who writes most of what we play, gets sick of his own songs... We used to have one song that he changed parts of every week because he got sick of them, eventually we scrapped it!

Thats why it's better to have a crapload of albums and good songs, but no "hits". You can play something different every night, and the crowd will still love it. Or you could employ a complex mathematical formula to ensure you never play the same setlist twice (I'm looking at YOU James LaBrie).

Paul from BTBAM is quoted as saying he'd rather step on his genitals with metal spikes then play Selkies again and then they played it again, so they do but you have to play your most popular songs.


I thought that was Dustie?

ahaha, but yeah... you'd think bands would hate the popular tunes after a while.
has a terrible signature.

There was a period where Anthony Kiedis absolutely couldn't play Under the Bridge any more. Also Radiohead and Creep.

He actually doesn't, he's played it at guitar clinics recently and even with fergie on the new album. If he hated it, he wouldn't have recorded the song again.

the reason they stopped playing smells like teen spirit was because it represented everything he hated, MTV, corporate america and the fact that everyone knew the song.
I enjoy going on interviews with Dave Mustaine and Counting how many times it says 'Metallica'

I haven't hated any of the songs we've written, but then again I do change up all the fills everytime I play it, so it stays original. But we literally practice our 8 songs to death, so that we can record them once we get a chance. The crowd loooooves them though, so they're fun to play. I'm sure if a band wrote a song that was too simple for them, or that they weren't sure about, and they had to play it every show, they'd get tired of it.

When I was in Catch 22's music video for 'Party Song' we had to hear the song about 412803847120963 times that day while filming, and when we were hanging out later the singer was like 'we're never playing this song again because we all hate it after today' and they actually haven't played it since.

That was one long sentence. Weird.

One thing to keep in mind is that playing a song 500 times is much more enjoyable than listening to it 500 times, unless you play it by rote every time. Take Neil Young as an example; he's played Rockin' In The Free World ~500 times live since '89, and he continues to play it, because they actually play it differently every time: there's enough space in the song to improvise and keep it fresh. Things are probably similar for other bands that jam a lot and play with the structures of songs.

For bands that play very tightly structured music, I imagine it's much more of a problem.

The Dead had the right idea. ****in change it up and jam. They didn't just make a setlist for the tour and play the same damn thing every night. They changed it up every night, and jammed out on a lot of songs. Let them evolve, and keep it fresh.

Zappa did the same thing. A song isn't set in stone once it's finished.

Perhaps that's more to do with what the song's about?

Maybe a little, but for the most part no, he said it was because he was sick of singing it everywhere he went all the time. It's in his biography
