Okay, I don't know if that really makes sense. I want to know if you guys know of any bands that you think are good, but can't listen to much. One band that I feel this way about is Dinosaur Jr. I think they're a good band, but no matter how hard I try I just can't get into them.


Is there anyone else in the pit that's like this, or am I just a freak?

The Rolling Stones or U2. I just don't enjoy the music

"Bands that you know are talented and have a good reputation for a reason, but you couldn't give two shits about them" sounds like a better title.

You are a freak because you can't get into Dinosaur Jr.
Quote by ChemicalFire
The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

there are a lot of bands that i think are good bands but just not for me. I don't like even bringing them up because it always degrades into a flame war of "how can you not like ......."

BTBAM is the perfect example of an extremely talented band that can't write a song for shit.

Is that what you're asking?

No sir. I'm asking for bands that you'll hear and think that they're good, but you can't be a fan of their music.

That would have worked too.

I dunno, I mean, I guess if I wasn't into a band I wouldn't really think of them as 'good', regardless of whether they're talented or whatever.

I came in here to say the exact same thing.

You're alright.

I can't get into Dream Theater, BTBAM and a couple of others.

Not a freak at all. It's understandable to accept talent but not connect with it. It's pretty similar to recognizing a good artist/painter but not being able to connect to "art". Instead you connect with "music".

I KNOW Monet is good but I can't appreciate his work for what it is as I don't connect with paintings.

Make sense? probably not. I'm drunk. Again.

Conclusion. Something to do with taste.

Because this is the Pit, so a flame fest is inevitable.

That's not the genre they normally play through.

And to clarify, I enjoy BTBAM, I just think that they could be much better if they had some better songwriting abilities.



Fair do's. I feel the same to be honest, I have to be very much in the mood to listen to them.

I think to a lesser extent; Opeth. I was actually a huge fan for years, and then I woke up one day and thought to myself ''These arrangements make no sense''. Some of their stuff is still fantastic, but Akerfeldts need to be proggy marrs the structure a lot of the time. Never been able to listen to them in the same way for ages.

It's like regular music, but dragged out and boring and much more pretentious.

So, kind of like hipsters are regular people but more boring and pretentious?

That's the thing -- Bon Iver is widely acclaimed as the hippest artist this side of Jackson Pollack, and I just can't get into it.
