There are some bands out there that i just cant get into. i just find them too average. Like it doesn't contribute anything new.

For example, Foo Fighters


Anyone else think of bands that are famous and are just "okay"

i actually love them, pretty much every person in that band is very talented at what they do and the band as a whole writes very clever and pleasing stuff.

nah i was naming bands i honestly just think are boring and plain. i seem to have selective ADD where i cant listen to music or play video games that are not in any way innovative or clever, which is why i love me my wii.

A lot of mainstream bands out there are just average. Some are good though, and some are great. I'd have to disagree woth ypu about FF, they're pretty darn awesome.

But anyway, that's why I immerse myself in the indie scene...mainly NYC and Boston, as I find they have the best scene. Chicago puts out some good stuff every once and a while, and every now and then, a good band will pop up from some state like Washington or something....but anyway, I digress.
As I was saying, I immerse myself in the aforementioned indie scenes because they sstill play for the music. It's not about what the record company wants or how to get rich quick like a lot of the mainstream bands these days.

okay many could argue about pink floyd with me for days, but malmsteen is in essence a vanilla shredder, i love shred but hes just plain BORING and pretentious. all the others IMHO are plain generic pentatonic rock, of course they were new and exciting in 1960-70-whatever, but now to me, a 16 year old with MANY options, lots of bands have improved upon it and made it better.

I think people like Disturbed because of the weird sounds he adds to the songs.

ACDC. And all of their fanboys who, whenever a news article is posted with a "sell-out" band and ACDC's name in their, post stupid comments like "omg, how DARE they compare themselves to ACDC", etc etc.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

skate. has what many games dont, a sense of achievement for doing some of the smallest things in game and its flickit trick system and realistic sense of play are both innovative, and wariowares take on microgames (smaller than minigames) and its taking advantage of a relatively new motion sensor technology is innovative as well

/complete sidetracking

I kinda agree. I can't think of anything off the top of my head, but there's a lot of music that's not really bad, but just kinda bland and mediocre.

As long as we're sidetracked....

Zelda and Rayman for Wii are awesome. I'm also trying out GC games i missed, and Metroid Prime is amazingly awesome. Innovative, beautiful and action packed.

Bands/artists whose music bores me, regardless of how talented they are:

Foo Fighters
Dream Theater (excluding Glass Prison)
Dead Can Dance
Elvis Presley
Johnny Cash
Pearl Jam (excluding Yield and some other songs)
U2
Most orchestral soundtracks (save for the"main titles" and some other exceptions)
Most jazz
Most Jpop (about 60% of it)
Andrea Bocelli
Sarah Brightman (one exception)
Frank Sinatra
Most indie

I really have to agree with you there. I want to be a well-cultured musician or whatever, but a lot of it just seems like elevator music to me. I actually like older big band music with cool horn riffs and stuff, but most combo jazz is too improvised to really grab me.

Wow, talk about a coincidence. Just a few nights ago, I started downloading a whole bunch of swing and big band music after reading about how its successor bebop tried to steer the genre into a more inaccessible medium (and thus more respectable, blah). What I like most is the casual New Orleans-style jazz (from an unlikely source).

Breaking Benjamin, Godsmack, Three Days Grace, and just about every other mainstream modern rock band. As far as classic goes, I can't get into Led Zeppelin, I just don't understand why people like them so much. Love ACDC and love to play their stuff but seriously out of the 20 songs on my Ipod that are by them, none of them have been played because there is ALWAYS something better.
