What songs do you think people have no reason not to like? I'm talking about songs with absolutely no non-mainstream techniques used, such as screaming, growling or extremely down-tuned guitars, yet aren't well-received.

For me, it's Hell's Kitchen by Dream Theater. It's an amazing and beautiful song. There's no screaming, growling, or even vocals actually. All the melodies (with the exception of the bass, obviously) are well-within the acceptable range of tones for most people, I would say. Sure, the drumming is progressive, but honest to God, if I'm not into progressive music right now, I still wouldn't mind progressive drumming because they're kind of mystical. Like, "How is he doing that without going out of time?"

Because it's a progressive metal/rock song? The music you think is normal and beautiful might go over people's heads.

Listening to that song in the OP link to see if i think it's any good >.>

So far it's not doing it, it just sounds like a lot of 'epic' sounding guitary stuff. I find it cheesy.

On topic, a lot of my music i understand is abrasive in some way or another so i can understand why people don't like it. However, people who say The Doors suck for instance or think Johnny Cash sucks for example, tend to be people i dislike.

Don't even get me started. I won't stop. So I won't even start.

Dream Theather (however the **** I spell I don't give a shit) are terrible.

Whoever thinks Bob Dylan isn't the best musician ever ain't worth talking to.

Because holy mother of God, it's boring.

When I listen to this I feel like I should be wearing leather pants and a puffy pirate shirt, with mascara on my face, and my hair teased up in aqua net as I cry over my leather clad ex girlfriend and pray for Ronald Reagan to be out of office.

Any Japanese music.
I listen to maybe two bands out of the entire Japanese music industry and people look down on me when I say they're Japanese. I don't get a straight answer why Japanese rock is not acceptable. It sounds great. The only difference is that it's another language. Is that the only reason why people don't like it?

It's probably a combination of that and a lot of people associate anything Japanese = Weaboo.

Flower Travellin' Band is one of the greatest bands that ever walked the face of the other. Acid Mothers Temple, too. You get no argument out of me.

Hells Kitchen's ight, but tbh it's not really an accessible song. It was the first song I heard by DT and it almost kept me away from the band if I hadn't heard Change of Seasons immediately afterwards. Now THERE'S a song any self respecting Progger or Metalhead should love.

TS, I like that song and I've never heard it before. Thank you. There was that one little shreddy bit about halfway through that I didn't like all that much but it wasn't long.

I really have no idea how someone can actively dislike this song, except maybe for its length.

EDIT: JustRooster, kill yourself.

This has to be a joke. I stopped it after the first sound. That was abysmal.

Bob Dylan isn't the best musician ever. He is my favorite artist though.

Everyone loves Django reinhardt. e.g. Minor swing

Right? Right???? : S

Cause I do!!!!

P.s. Dream theatre... Ugh. Very boring indeed. Playing the same music for 30 somewhat years.

I haven't really found anything that I can put next to this band and call similar, but another band I got into around the same time was this one.

Best songwriter, lyricist whatever. Good enough for me. But John Petrucci is by far the best guitarist. He's very fast.

I.e best musician. Or I shall spell it out so it's simple. Best artist/band inside music/the music industry. End communication.


Not if your brain works. You can favor someone's music even if you acknowledge that their work isn't as intricate and involved as another artist's. I understand that the more famous shredders are more technically virtuosic than anybody that I tend to listen to and thus more skilled musicians and I respect them for that, but I'm just not a fan of their work.

Whatever. I thought this thread was opinion based. Why are you questioning my opinions? My opinions > yours as far as I'm concerned.

People have horrible taste and never learn yet they think they listen to good music. Pity
