Music/bands you can't stand...

    ...dare I say - or HATE?

    Personally I cannot listen to Aphex Twin. Their music always brings to my mind scenes of 'ultra-violence' including murder and rape. It actaulyl all started when I was reading a fantasy novel a few years ago (can't recall which) and had actually reached a scene where a major female character was being raped by the major beast-villain of the work. These days I can't even have it as background music during a conversation or video game, I simply HAVE to change the channel/station the second they come on. Anyone have similar feelings towards Aphex Twin or any other music?

    I absolutely HATE rap and gino beats. I just know too many people who turned things that I was indefferent about into absolute crap.

    [​IMG] Whoa, where to start ... where to start....

    I can't possibly name them all. But to paint with a very broad brush: pop, rock, alternative (especially), metal, country, rap, and muzak.

    Hip-hop, which doesn't technically classify as music, but it is indeed some collection of sounds, so I bet it goes :shake:

    Followed by rap, techno and metal.

    Bands and "artists":
    • Britney.
    • Back**** boys.
    • Just 5.
    • Other sissies

    While I like music from all genres, I despise music which sounds like it is made without passion or any feelings. Most podern popacts belong into this group (especially those casting acts), most poprappers and the likewise awful rockacts like The Rasmus or Avril Lavigne.

    I hate power or "true" metal like Manowar or Blind Guardian. The music is crappy and the singers sound like eunuchs. (And they look so ridiculous.)

    And I don't like most bands who don't develop their music over time, like Iron Maiden, AC/DC or Linkin Park. They always sound the same.

    Although I can see where people are coming from with what music they like (even if I disagree), there are some things I cannot stand. They are:

    Dance music - I once listened to it for 15 minutes, wondering why it was such a long song, then it turned out it was 5 different ones.

    Justin Timberlake

    Westlife (especially the one with the babyface)

    Bob Dylan (good songs, apart from his voice, which grates against my soul)

    Slipknot & Korn & Kelly Osbourne

    Three of the most hideous creations known to man. Not only in lack of talent do they offend me, but also in their appearence, their melodramatic attitudes to everything and everyone and their general behaviour.

    BTW I do realise the irony of me placing these monstrosities in topic wiht the word music in the title.

    Major hate - dance "music". No skill, no talent. It amazes me how many people continue to buy these CDs, but don't listen to them anymore after 2 months. Cattle. Serves them right.

    Slightly less hated, but still despised nonetheless - nu-metal, alternative rock (if it's rock, how can it be alternative?), two/three/four chord bands.

    Same here.... one more comment i found exceptionally stupid, which I must pick upon is this one.

    No Talent? you try picking up a guitar, sit behind a drumkit, pick up a microphone or anything else you can beg to think of (mixing desk, turntable, bass guitar, whatever) and try and play something by slipknot.... its **** hard, complex and fast music, anybody with a "lack of talent" wouldn't be able to touch it... seriously, listen to music before you whine about it.

    I like slipknot and korn to some extent, but i'm not defending slipknot because i like them... i'm just defending rationality and logic to some extent. (i dont care about the entire comment, i put itallics around the bits i wanna rant about, but quote the whole thing for the good of reading).

    I beg to differ. Slipknot is a joke. Complex?

    Here is the guitar part to pretty much every Slipknot song:

    c ---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0

    or

    C ---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1

    Its not complex from a technical standpoint, it's not complex from a harmonic or melodic standpoint and it's not complex from a rhytmic standpoint. The 3 minute songs are not structured in a complex way. There is no (or very few) odd time sigs, and they don't use any unusual modalities. There is nothing 'complex' about it. Then again I play progressive metal...

    Slipknot is actually exceedingly talented. They have technical drum and bass and synth licks. I don't particularly care for their style of music, but I can listen to it and enjoy because it's well done. Matt from Rancid is better though :p

    Bands I dislike...
    any band that sings about good stuff but can't play their instruments that well: Nickleback, Three Doors Down, Goo Goo Dolls, etc.

    Bands I F-ing HATE!...
    all pop, most rap (mostly because they're not gangsters! They're showmen! They've probably never seen a jail except from the window of their limo.) most poprock (Aerosmith namely with the exception of Steve Miller Band. They're pretty good.) all popular punk (simple plan, avril, etc.)

    Slipknot? If you want drums, try Dimmu Borgir. If you want guitars, try Children of Bodom. If you want bass, Dream Theater. Vocals? Opeth. Slipknot might be slightly better in the world of nu-metal, but the true heavyweights of real metal would impale them.

    Masks and costumes and excessive band members need to be backed up by proficiency. Like InquisitorX said, continuous palm muting on an open string down-tuned guitar in every song is about as untechnical as it gets.
