Title: Your most hated bands!
Post by: Mr. Consideration on December 11, 2006, 11:21:46 am
Which bands can you really not stand?

Myself? Blink 182. They are terrible, but so many girls at my school are obsessed with them. Meaning any music sending I do means I'll be getting my 80th copy of Carousel again. Seriosuly! This guy has a whiny irritating voice and there is very little to redeem the band in terms of music.

People STILL listen to them?

It's funny, I hate so many bands, but when someone actually asks who my most hated one(s) is/are, I always blank.

Nickelback definitely deserve a mention, though. They're one of the few bands I will actively go out of my way to avoid listening to.

Most all rap, if that even counts as music.

Otherwise Linkin Park really irritate me.

Panic! at the disco.

Wait, that leads me to another train of thought because they're a ripoff of a ripoff. Bowling for soup, All American Rejects, Blink 182 gets annoying at times...most of the stuff in that genre I don't like.

Oh, Gwen Stefani.

Hmm...I'm not sure. I really have a pretty broad musical taste(I even listen to some rap!). I guess the one thing I hate is all those American Idol retards. I couldn't stand that show for one second.

Edit: And techno. the system, is down. the system, is down.

They do write them most of the time, they just lack musical skills. I have never heard a catchy tune in a rap song since the old school generations, those sounded better.

I hate it when people ask me what kind of music I like. Now I just tell them I like any type of genre if it's catchy enough.

It seem´s like the whole geek comunity hates Hiphop/rap, except me... You cant say that Wu-tang Clan lack musical skill, they are musical geniouses.

Oh, and I hate Slipknot. They cant play instruments, they just bang them out of tune and one of their members doesnt play an instrument, hes job is to help the others destroy their instruments. One of the singers can sing, the other one is rubbish.

Now I will probably be flamed because I attacked one of the geek comunities most loved band. And it feels good.

I suppose you'd like to believe that there's something controversial about disliking a band as indefensibly bad as Slipknot? I think you might have "geeks" confused with 14-year-old mall goths.

Listen to their drummer sometime. He's great at it. not the "percussionist", by the way.
And the guitar is not for solos or melodies, it's rhythm guitar to fill in the empty sound area left by the other instruments. And listen to the pulse of the maggots solo and then tell me how much of a guitarist he is. And I think they have 2 backing vocalists...Corey Taylor is lead though.

"They have a good drummer" is such a cop-out argument for defending a bad band.
Quote from: Dr. David Thorpe
Dave Matthews Band (http://www.somethingawful.com/index.php?a=4165)
The Best Of What's Around Volume 1

The Dave Matthews band is the ultimate example of the “good drummer law.” If ever you say something bad about a band and somebody says “yeah, well they had a really good drummer,” the band is even worse than you thought, and the person who made the remark is mentally unfit to be considered human. It is the ultimate weak-ass argument, and it is the last resort of the truly ****ing clueless.

Take pity on the poor soul who invokes the good drummer. Buy him a lollypop and a copy of Phil Collins’ “No Jacket Required,” and mercifully prod him into the nearest active volcano.
Metal guitar solos, as a rule, are bad. Nu metal ones, more so. I'm gonna go ahead and assume that this is no exception unless someone proves otherwise by linking to the song...

I agree with Bastardman, "They have a good drummer" doesnt save Slipknot from being one of the lousiest bands alive. But I dont agree that Nu Metal guitarr solo's suck, because most Nu Metal bands doesnt have guitarr solo's in their songs, so you cant complain about something that doesnt excist.
Title: Re: Your most hated bands!
Post by: Bastardman on December 29, 2006, 09:09:52 am
I didn't say that most of them did. But most isn't all. When they do go ahead and attempt a guitar solo, they'll generally butcher it pretty badly.
Title: Re: Your most hated bands!
Post by: Daxx on December 30, 2006, 02:17:24 am
Not all metal solos suck. Here are a few good ones:

Metallica's Kirk Hammett
http://youtube.com/watch?v=OpkyAEk4m0Q

Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi
http://youtube.com/watch?v=Z47_OUfcK6U
http://youtube.com/watch?v=HFh8noEepU4

Solo from Dragonforce's Through the Fire and the Flames
http://youtube.com/watch?v=tqYjqyHnVNs

But then metal solos often differ from traditional rock solos because they often involve shredding and fret tapping.
Title: Re: Your most hated bands!
Post by: Bastardman on December 30, 2006, 09:12:31 am
Yeah, okay, I'm not saying they don't have skill. My problem with metal guitar solos in particular (and it's not that I hate metal by any means) is that they're so masturbatory. They usually just come across as an excuse to go "hey, check out my manual dexterity," without really adding anything to the song. The likes of that Hammett solo are what I'm talking about here. A lot of Metallica's early stuff features this kind of soloing, but when you listen to their later work, when they stop relying on that, you start notice how little they actually have going for them beyond Hammett's ability to move around a fret board.

The Dragonforce one is pretty decent though. It actually sounds like music.
Title: Re: Your most hated bands!
Post by: Gungnir on December 30, 2006, 06:23:46 pm
Good point...but still. get the G3 dvd with Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, and Yngwie Malmsteen. Watch them. They are probably the most technically proficient guitarists alive.

Although they can do some work on making it sound better.
Personally I like the song "The mystical potato head groove thing"

All seconded!

Add anyone who uses video clips as an excuse to have models in skimpy clothes rub up against them while mouthing the lyrics their studio wrote for them (i.e. almost everything on TV these days).

Also add anything classed as "pop".

I don't like the Kaiser Chiefs. The sole reason for this is that I get confused between them and Franz Ferdinand because they inhabit the same genre and have WW1 related names.
The reason I favour Franz Ferdinand in thsi clash of names is that they did "Take me out" which I like for a very convoluted reason. To whit:

I had of course heard the song, but when it was old enough to not constantly be played on the radio and in shops and so forth i suddenly and without warning forgot almost everything about it save the following facts:

1. It was by Franz Ferdinand or the Kaiser Chiefs (one of those Great War bands, anyway)
2. It had once been used in some advert

Tortured by this knowledge I couldn't recall its name or the tune. This FINALLY ended, almost a full year after it had begun, when someone played it on their laptop. That was a happy day.

I don't like music with complete pointless lyrics, or just stupid points.
Like the *****cat dolls; ALL their tracks is, in someway, about how they hate men, and still they aren't lesbian ????
And the artists featuring them, like Snoopdog etc, are just ruining their own reputation, getting trashed in a song by some sexist girls >_<
I never dislike a WHOLE genre, because that is generalizing, and stupid.
I've never heard a genre, where ALL the music under that genre, was bad, there's always some good artists.
Most mainstream rap sucks, yes, but there are many underground artists that are really good.
An up-and-coming artist; "Plan B", from UK, is worth checking out.
