Title: Bands that everyone seems to like that you just don't dig
Post by: Alien Sweatshop on February 12, 2009, 03:57:57 PM
Other than the obvious Mainstream bands/artists, are there any bands that everyone seems to like that you just can't get into? I've honestly never been into AC/DC for some reason. I can enjoy other "rock" bands like Black Sabbath, Minor Threat and Bad Brains but I'm really more into kind of softer stuff. Not TOO soft though. Shit like animal Collective, Elliot Smith, Bob Dylan, The Kinks, Morrissey, The Smiths, The Kooks, The Doors, maybe Sonic Youth, Dino Jr. etc.

I got into music after I started skateboarding, some of my first videos were Really Sorry, Yeah Right, This is skateboarding and Mosaic...so yes I basically got my music from videos and from that got into other good music. It started with my watching a video part, thought the song was cool, searched it up and listened to it some more, got tired of it and searched up some of their other songs, then that transcends to me listening to similar bands/artists and so on and so on.

Getting into a certain band from watching a video that you liked is the same as getting into a certain band from watching a commercial or tv show that had one of their songs in it.

I've gotten into a shitload of bands from commercials and TV shows.  Of course, you're 14 and can just go online and find anything.  This was not possible when I was 14.

We had to walk uphill (both ways) in the snow to the record store.

Other than the obvious Mainstream bands/artists, are there any bands that everyone seems to like that you just can't get into? I've honestly never been into AC/DC for some reason. I can enjoy other "rock" bands like Black Sabbath, Minor Threat and Bad Brains but I'm really more into kind of softer stuff. Not TOO soft though. Shit like animal Collective, Elliot Smith, Bob Dylan, The Kinks, Morrissey, The Smiths, The Kooks, The Doors, maybe Sonic Youth, Dino Jr. etc.

It was after he listened to all of his albums all the way through. Too sad.

His band Heatmiser was pretty swell.

And a lot of the people I hang out with are obsessed with Neil Young, and the Band, and now Neil Young is kinda ruined for me.

The Band is just boring. Neil Young on the other hand................... Total rawk!

On an unrelated note. Someone played a Grateful Dead block tonight at the bar. Notice, I didn't call it a "Rock" block. Why,? Cause the Grateful Dead do not rock! That band makes me sick! "do do do wank wank do wank barrrrffff" Bah!

Hate to admit it, but I like some Dead.  Probably from growing up with old bikers.

On the other hand, I really can't get into Rush.  I mean they are okay if I hear em
on the radio or something, but some of my friends are just kookoo for Rush and
paying $100 to see them and all.

maybe I'm just jealous I don't have a hundred bucks to blow on a show:(

"subdivisions" is a pretty good song, but other than that...
and I will never understand why people like Jam bands, like grateful dead and phish and crap like that, it just gets really boring really quick
and the lyrics usually suck as well

i don't. is that a dead lyric or something?

i did go to the swanee river music festival one year because my girl at the time wanted me to go with her and a bunch of her friends were hippies. it was so bizarre watching these people in their natural habitat.

lots of:
drugs
dreads and/or tangled hair
patchouli
hackysacks
frisbees

very little:
bras
shoes
deodorant
shaved girls

i only made it through one night and had to break out (i think it was a 3 night, 4 day thing and i don't even know who played).

i guess that doesn't really help my case too much...but seriously, i was a bboy throughout all this. there are no hippy bboys! while i also have a mouse-bee playing a washboard, a lizard playing the congos, and a porcupine playing the trumpet "jamming" with the turtle, i have a penguin and a platypus bboying in the mix.

Post by: bucky fellini on March 05, 2009, 10:12:11 AM
it isn't a dead lyric. just another crappy "dirty hippie" joke. like "how do you hide money from a hippy? put it under the soap!" see? like that. I'm full of bad jokes; its my specialty. they're the only ones I can ever remember. since we're on the topic, here's a couple more:


Q) Why does snoop dogg need an umbrella?



A) For the drizzle.




Q) How did Darth Vader know what Luke got him for Christmas?



A) He could feel his "presents"

have u tried skatin to neil young playin (obviously over speakers... headphones are bitchassness)? shit sucks. not only am i not feelin the music... its always to mellow... cant blast an air when i feel like im being put to sleep. when theirs tranny to be skated its gotta be slayer, metallica (first 4 albums or so), danzig, bad brains... something fast and rad...

by the way, aerosmith really sucks, but ya gotta have some talent to get that far...
but i still fuckin hate them

If you say you can't skate with metal blaring, I doubt you have actually tried it.  Slayer or anything in that vicinity makes EVERY session, regardless of pool/park/street, better.  I am not even that big of a metalhead, but something about it is great.

yeah, two different deals, for sure. pearl jam, nirvana, soundgarden, alice in chains. all those bands from seattle are always lumped together but basically sound nothing alike.

nirvana rips. in utero is amazing. one of the top played albums in my whole life. it almost became cliche to say you like them or something, sort of like the beastie boys. horseapples! long live gnarvana.

His early stuff with the jabbers and the scumfucks was really good. The voice on his later records kinda sucks. A man can only do so much drugs and consume that much alcohol before it begins to affect his voice. Check out banned in boston I posted in the Crucial music thread. Very good shit

most of it in general. there are exceptions, but as a whole, i just can't get into it. same with hardcore and a lot of metal.

i'm not a hippy, chuck (and hardcoreskates).

That's funny, my two favorite genres are probably punk and (old) r&b.

Sid could play a little, not that the bass lines are very complex, but I assume he was just so loaded most of the time that he had an even harder time with it.  Glen Matlock from the Rich Kids started out playing bass. I kind of wished they would have kept him on. And I'm pretty sure Steve Jones did most of the bass stuff in the studio. Take Sid out of the band and you've got a pretty solid punk rock group. Steve Jones and Paul Cook were tight, sure I can see how they were over shadowed by Johnny and Sid's image, but those guys were right on and were the core of the group. Do you dig the Professionals?

Other than the obvious Mainstream bands/artists, are there any bands that everyone seems to like that you just can't get into? I've honestly never been into AC/DC for some reason. I can enjoy other "rock" bands like Black Sabbath, Minor Threat and Bad Brains but I'm really more into kind of softer stuff. Not TOO soft though. Shit like animal Collective, Elliot Smith, Bob Dylan, The Kinks, Morrissey, The Smiths, The Kooks, The Doors, maybe Sonic Youth, Dino Jr. etc.
Even if you dont like Elliott Smith you cant deny that he is an amazing guitarist.

dont know how this will be recieved... but i dont really like GG Allen that much.

maybe 2 or 3 songs, but otherwise it's just like him to me... scum

i respect the legend, but i dont understand the fascination with the music
His early stuff with the jabbers and the scumfucks was really good. The voice on his later records kinda sucks. A man can only do so much drugs and consume that much alcohol before it begins to affect his voice. Check out banned in boston I posted in the Crucial music thread. Very good shit
I hate to be the grammar asshole here, but its G.G. Allin, not Allen.

I got it a while ago...if your music's intentionally lo-fi, it better be damn good/interesting...I didn't find this was the case.

I got another one, reminded because I'm listening to them right now...Joy Division!  I don't get it!  The Akira Kurosawa of the musical world!  Broke new ground?  Yes!  Developed genres?  Yes!  Withstood the test of time?  For the most part, NO!  Maybe some day I'll get it, but for now, I find most of the bands credited as "ripping them off" (Interpol, etc.) to be substantially better.

Ian Curtis' voice was amazing, the rest of joy division was pretty much just Martin Hannett's production

David Bowie is great...he has some boring songs, definitely, but I love Ziggy Stardust, one of my favorite albums...and "Life on Mars?" is fsho a favorite song.  He has a good deal of clunkers though.
