I'm glad to see no-one is defending AC/DC.

Most overrated band ever



They're fun to listen to on the highway but if I had to choose between an AC/DC album and a(n) *insert obscure extreme metal band here* album I would pick the latter.

I can't stand Gun's and Roses. How anyone can handle Axl's vocals is beyond me. That, and I don't understand why everyone kisses Slash's ass. He's nothing exceptional. There's so many other players; famous and bedroom warriors alike that can outplay him. In shredability, harmonic structuring, and overall playability. He's not terrible though by any means, I just don't see why people worship him like he's the best guitarist ever.


Oh and I actually like Trivium's The Crusade more than I do Ascendancy and I love all their albums.

Ten is the worst Pearl Jam album

Quote by IRISH_PUNK13
Have you not heard the last album they put out?

It's their most boring one, and the one I'm least likely to put on. Vocals, solos and general passion peaked with that album though. Backspacer is probably worse yeah, but Ten is far from PJ's best. Oh, and Oceans, Deep and Release are its best songs (okay, Black too).
Quote by The Madcap
1. People who hate on the Beatles are either ignorant, or just trying to be controversial. The only thing that they can really be criticized for is that they aren't very technically skilled at their respective instruments. But I've never liked that reason to criticize a musician.

2. The Beatles are on a whole 'nother level musically to the Rolling Stones. They took on much more versatile styles and had far more diverse songwriting. The only reason to prefer the Rolling Stones is because they have more of a badass rock 'n roll image, and The Beatles are a little more sensitive.

Well, a lot of (mostly early) Beatles songs are just silly and annoying. I love a lot of their stuff, but there's a lot to hate too. They also weren't that great at putting out consistently great albums (fucking White Album is even worse in that respect than Pink Floyd's The Wall).

In a sense, they've been both really great, and really hateable.

To everyone talking about AC/DC: AC/DC was fun, simple rock up until Bon Scott died. Just stupid, easy music that's fun to listen to. It went to hell when they hired the Cookie Monster to replace him though.

John and George were the best Beatles, not John and Paul. All three are groovy though.

I don't get Radiohead.

A lot of people who bitch about how culturally dry and lifeless modern music is have no idea what they're talking about and need to know where to look.

Especially Radiohead. I don't hate the band and I've tried listening many times. I just don't get it.


And yea to the second one. People who say that are just to lazy to look for anything

Beyond that

Thrash metal just fell hard out of favor for me, I can list on one hand the bands I still occasionally spin. And Slayer in particular seem to embody the specific type of thrash I find boring.

Fair enough, though even if you exclude Slayer and their progeny I can still think of a few more than five decent bands, but I found 'Watching from a Distance' boring so we probably have slightly different ideas of what's interesting.

You're spelling Pete Best wrong, mate.


Nah but Ringo's the odd man out. I like his stuff, and I like his work, but he's a definite fourth for me. Being the fourth-place Beatle is still pretty damn good though.

There are some definitely important and great thrash acts, I just rarely find myself in the mood for thrash anymore. It's been declining for years now.

I have absolutely no problem seeing how someone could find Watching from a Distance boring actually, I recognize doom metal is just not going to click for most people. Especially Warning's variety of doom.

I guess the types of music I listen to most are progessive rock, alternative rock, and metal; I don't just listen to those genres of course (I don't know, I listen to a lot of shit), but an unpopular opinion about music I have is that I actually like some metalcore. Not the chugga-chugga-BOOM (bass drop)-breakdown-horrible pig squeally vocals shit, but the melodic metalcore with actually good, sung vocals, not too far off from "melodeath" I can dig (and prefer to a lot of uber-brutal elitist shit a lot of metalheads love).

My unpopular musical opinions:

Dream Theater/Opeth annoys me.
Technical death metal music flat out sucks.
I don't understand nor care for the Beatles.
Music should be paid for.

Radiohead's really grown on me lately. I've known them for years, but I've just recently started listening to them much more.


That's how I hear it from most Radiohead fans, they didn't "get" them at first, and then after awhile they grew on them and became converts.

Pop is actually a lot like metal in the sense that it's not as bad as a lot of people think, but most people generalize because of the handful of really bad examples that get strawman'd to death.

Yngwie is very capable of being a soulless wanker with no artistic value and pure technique. He's also very capable of creating enjoyable-yet-technical music with emotion.

Bruce Springsteen is a badass and a great lyricist.

I most definitely agree with these three.

I don't care for the Beatles most of the time, I just find them really boring and don't get anything out of them, and I only actually respect George Harrison out of the four.

I find a lot of 'true' death metal to be repetitive and cliche, and I don't like black metal either. I think DM has a good amount of variety if I look hard enough but most that I've heard I just find to be boring and uncreative. Hell, I don't even mind deathcore, I find that I can be a bit more varied within that genre than with what people call true DM.

I really like Miss May I's first album but I think they are shit live.

I dislike Gibson guitars except for Explorers but I don't have any qualms with Line 6 amps.

I buy most of my music and I don't like illegal downloading unless the band/artist gives free downloads.

Quote by whywefight
Ooh, that's an interesting one.

Care to elaborate?
I don't really care for Shine On You Crazy Diamond, and I really don't like The Wall. I like the Syd Barrett era the most, however I still think DSOTM is just a really great, cohesively written album. It still has that weird, kind of eerie Pink Floyd sound, but it doesn't go too far or try too hard.

The Wall is just too much for me. I don't know how to explain it. And SOYCD is okay. None of the tracks really hit me hard, though. And sometimes I find it cheesy (which I find most tributes, anyway).

I find Dark Side of the Moon incredibly boring and I don't understand why it's considered one of the best albums of all time.

Not even getting high and listening to the whole thing in the dark makes it interesting. Just even more boring.

Edit: Typo.

I'm a sucker for dorian harmonies. They reprise the i-IV chord progression theme in so many tracks.

Linkin Park are a good band (A Thousand Suns is their best album)

Not really the music itself but flamenco elitist are probably more annoying than metal elitist.

I like Muse's past two albums. /fanboy

No matter what anyone says the band fun is pretty good. I'm really liking them lately.
