I'd say The Music for one.
They're pretty much public enemy number 1 one DiS, but i like them
Well some of their albums anyway
but they really don't deserve all the hate they get round here.
i revel in the fact most of the bands i like are hated by the in-crowd on this site.
Especially the first three albums.
(Glasvegas and KCs - not so much :p)
There was a threadon them recently which I expected to be full of people slating them, but there were a fair few positive comments, more than I expected anyway. It was mainly Stadium Arcadium that got the brunt of criticism.
I overstated it a bit.
the first taking back sunday album
until people start talking about them.
They're one of my favourite bands. Because they're ace.
In response to first post, are The Music 'derided'? I thought they were just a bit ignored by the masses.
their early stuff and 90s stuff is awesome...some good songs on how to dismantle an atomic bomb too...goes embaressed..
there, said it.
maybe not as much as when I was 14 but I still have a huge soft spot for them
Something about being 14 makes feeder sound amazing...
remains to this day one of my favourite songs ever. It's ace. I'm not even 14 anymore.
are defiantly underrated on DIS. Their last album was shite but the first few are amazing.
they're a joke
still get a listen on occassions
Even if no one on here's heard of them, I know they get a load of shit fora stupid name and shit live performance, but they're genuinely amazing.
Okay, I'll give you that its not up there even with some okay bands but heck theyre better than the Cribs.
oh no i di'n't.
of the record? Even trashier.
don't bring me out in the anger rash that seems to affect everyone else.
I don't listen to them out of choice per se, but if one of their albums is playing when I'm round someones house I always enjoy it, in a vaguely indifferent way.
I don't get all the beef they get. You can't deny his/their song writing ability.
Well, not really, but I don't hate them. Actually, I quite like a couple of their songs, and I even love Fruit Machine. So... yes, really.
Kings of Leon
(early) Foo Fighters
for one, I'm not sure what people on here think of him, but a lot of people I knock about with just write him off which really fucks me off.
Well it doesn't really fuck me off, that's hyperbolic.
Except by one guy I know who says that Bon Jovi is much better (he also claims that R.E.M. are the worst band ever). Obviously I never talk music with him now.
Springsteen is popular on here anyway.
well, just I only know one or two people that give him the time of day
Can't seem to see past born in the usa
Which is actually a great track as well
Although I'm not sure how widely derided they are. People seem to pass them off a as a novelty.
They've rocked my geeky world since I was ten!
Are genuinely amazing. Eyes Wide Open off Funplex is a contender for track of the year!
the album or the song?
The Magic Numbers - their first album anyway.
foals and coldplay, quite like ting tings and travis.
Idlewild are far from derided but there was recently a wee snide comment from DiS about them not being good anymore and I think this is utter fucking bollocks. I still think they're one of the best bands out there.
about Idlewild going downhill severely over the years! To be honest, I agree with that, but it doesn't really matter because after Hope is Important and 100 Broken Windows, I can forgive them anything.
I even liked Rudebox.
Cliff Richards (only his synth era though)
I'm fairly wacky.
Bring Me The Horizon (I was pretty gutted not to get tickets for the leeds gig).
I only know one other person who likes them.
but I have more sense than dig my own grave. I'll just offer you all the above (or at least those I know) plus Does it Offend You, Yeah and the Klaxons.
They're my favourite band ever and cause of many a "WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?!!" outburst during music discusions.
Glow is a great album
claiming Pearl Jam as your favourite band ever is pretty fucking suspect.
anyone who enters a thread called 'Widely derided artists you quite like / like a lot' to leave a comment like that must be a bit of a cock. Shooting fish in barrels much?
my attempt at banter has clearly struck a nerve. I actually like Pearl Jam, I just think they're suspect.
are there favourite band ever.
It's just that most of them have mullets, wank over Sarah Palin and don't tend to post on DIS often.
Don't pick on spiritofjazz for being honest, you gave Foals a 10, any you'll never be able to edit that.
First 4 albums are brilliant.
when they were first gigging and I'd only heard 'Two Steps Twice', 'The French Open', 'Mathletics', etc. I'd give them an 8.6 now.
Are you thinking of Reading/Leeds in '06?
you lot all seem to hate them these days
i think marchin already was best album
I really fucking like Coldplay. A lot. I've said my peace.
When Fish was in them, rather than Steve hogarth. Go on give Misplaced Childhood a listen!
Ben folds five and panic at the disco
*hides in embarrassment*
Most 'Classic Rock' as its now labelled.
But I think a critical consensus on music is shit anyway. I'm convinced 30% of record buyers just buy what they are told is good
that statistic is rubbish.
also, i'm convinced that 98% of record buyers just buy what they are told is good...
Yes, he's frowned upon but if you have a sense of humour there's much to enjoy. (Thinking mainly of The Ecleftic, not that Shakira crap.)
