Bands or music you just can't get into or just don't get

Post by Deleted User 10525 » Sun Dec 02, 2018 7:29 pm

This doesn't mean "they suck ass" just means you either don't get or just sounds weird to you.

Radiohead- This one I don't get it, it just sounds like background music to me. I know a lot of people sure like them though.

Punk rock- well... much of it. I get why it's liked but I guess I am too much of a music snob to appreciate it.

Post Grunge- Ok this stuff sucks! 3 doors down, Nickelback, TOADM, Default,Stained, and Shinedown. It's the same repetitive riffs and music structure.

Korn- Never got the appeal here, just never did anything for me.

The only genre of music I truly hate is country.

I also don't get the appeal of death metal or any metal where the vocals are just screeching and screaming at the tops of their lungs. I do like some metal music but that constant vocal screaming makes my ears want to bleed.

As far as specific bands or artists - one who I just don't get is so popular is Drake.

Adele
Rolling Stones
Blink 182
Taylor Swift
Guns 'N Roses
Train
Coldplay
U2
Imagine Dragons - How did they get so popular?! HOW?

When I express this opinion, it's typically controversial with whomever I'm talking to. But it's not cuz I think these bands/singers aren't talented, or cuz they suck.... well yea, it's cuz I think they suck. LOL

All of those bore me, I got yelled at once because I said similar things about Jimi Hendrix, Aerosmith, The white stripes(they suck!), Queens of the stone age, and Bad Company. ick

Somehow, I liked The Flaming Lips "The Soft Bulletin" (from 1999). It remains a classic. Most of their other stuff I don't get though.
