are there any bands who can gain universal love from the boards?
(or at the very least a huge majority like 80/90%)
All pretty faultless songwriters IMO.
Was criminally over rated.
Are criminally INCORRECT.
I cant believe the national dont get more backup from their label.
Actually im gonna stay out of this thread! Purely for health reasons!
tv on the radio.
I never saw a hate thread for The National, nor much more than the odd dissenting voice.
Brand New seem to get pretty much universal acclaim here, and rightly so. Maybe Nick Cave (& projects) too?
but open any "The National are amazing!!!" thread and there will be plenty "I can't stand them/Boring" etc. posts.
I used to strongly dislike their music but realised that every critic out there couldn't be totally wrong, so I forced myself to play Boxer over and over again until it clicked. Now I'm a devotee. And they say that you shouldn't listen to the critics :-)
but that's just a theory
neutral milk hotel.
i remember some epic thread with many a user saying they just didnt 'get' why everyone said they were so good.
Everyone loves Fugazi too. Everyone w/out exception
Times New Viking
The Mars Volta
TNV, LC! and MV have got a bit of dislike on here, amid all the big, big love.
people just seem to get all angry about them for no reason on here!
but Stooges and Fugazi are mostly ok w/people
doubt it, but they might be..
That I would half endorse (Fugazi and The Stooges)
but otherwise that looks good. Has anyone said the pixies or pavement yet?
or at least pretends to hate the Beatles
They are a bit too ubiquitous for me to like them but they do have good tunes
no one actually hates the beatles, although they might be indifferent to them
Grockle hated the Beatles.
But they're probably as close as we can get.
cue: approximately 27 running arguments / personal threats against various people because people have trouble accepting that people like different types of music. In the one thread.
before I have to start working again
Come on you bastards!
They're total rubbish, worse than Arcade Fire AND Feeder! No you're shit!
Worse than James Last and the Wu Tang Clan!
let's get it organized
Someone names a band, five people go 'I hate them!'. And verily, no concensus is reached.
no YOU'RE shit if you don't like them you complete arse-puke aaaargh
and about three people were in support of it. The rest were all in disagreement or saying "not that bothered".
I don't think there is a band everyone likes why would there be?
I think your onto something excelent outfits
But yeah, Fugazi perhaps.
slating The Thermals. I remember the furore when they got a bad review on this site.
Some others that rarely receive a bad word;
None that would get universal approval though (e.g. I don't care much for radiohead)
see above for concurrence.
I said this in the other thread like this a while back and it got ignored (in a good way I think, but who knows)
the lyrics are often very stupid though. I'm glad they are mixed nice and low
but they're a bit of a minority interest
That's cos they're too heavy for the goons.
Purely for the fact that if anyone doesn't like them I don't consider them to be human.
you can say nah, but i just won't believe you
But Drive Like Jehu were infinitely superior
now nobody can disagree!
I prefer Drive Like a Hot Snake Rocket from the Pitchfork
was always more of a Drive Like a Hot Obits Snake Rocket from the Pitchfork fan
it's actually law that everytime someone expresses dislike for them, a kitten has to be killed.
I don't like belle & sebastien.
They're totally twee and lame.
even in the context of all twee things, they're not that good.
Anyone who doesn't like McLusky should not be allowed to breed.
So, so thirded
just you're pretty creepy distintegratedmind
closest so far?
I massively don't get Mclusky.
cause i dont. ouf
The Von Bondies
I'd say TOD.
about King Adora and JJ72.
My inner 14 year old is crying in the corner like the emo kid I never was.
because they are better than Neutral Milk Hotel.
Also, Von Bondies are ace. The rest of that ship can sink though.
I think I even started a thread about it back when DiS was in black and white, but we still managed to find a few spastics who gathered their thoughts together for long enough to type PIXIES FUCKIN SUCK
and not Oasis
A WOKE UP THIS MOOORNIN
some people on here don't really like lsf though, bizarre i know.
but it's rare to hear a bad word said about them.
the other two i like. i've read one or two negative posts about them but i would say 80 to 90 percent of the board likes these bands.
Horribly tedious and gimmicky
wouldn't get that much mixed reviews.
Pity the fools who are putting Beirut and Elliot Smith. Yes, everybody cries themselves to sleep at night listening to Beirut and Elliot Smith.
is it possible to dislike Low?
are the only things Brits universally love, as far as this American can tell.
that Americans are almost universally twats. As far as this Bit can tell.
Don't know how I forgot that one. *cough*
not everyone you understand...
anyone not like them ?
They're really not very ravey at all. Bizarre.
Nobody ever stops going on about them ffs
not enough riffs
I'm not going to read it. So Bollocks.
Would've said The Beatles but there are some afflicted beings out there.
I think Arcade Fire had the highest average rating from the most people.
but Interpol get loads of mentions on this. Which is good cos they're one of me favourite bands, so it seems alot of people like them. The way it should be!
yes. You beauty.
Forgot to even mention these, but I havent seen them mentioned on here that much generally.
Love love love.
are amazing! Paramore nooooooooooo
answer - no
Hate's a bit strong. I like Fireworks and that's it.
at least you chose a good song to like :D
I was on the edge of destroying all my Harry & the Potters albums in despair
i'll never cruelly trick you again, i promise!
The bare minimum of the album I've heard seems to be allright, but I don't see the hype. I really don't.
Evidently they are a good band but I mean yeah, I dont see where all the fuss has stemmed from.
I think when you sign up for sites like this you have to sign a waiver saying you like them don't you?
MBV are shit.
sure you can diss MBV, but i guess by following this thread you could say every great band in history is shit. There's no such thing as a universally loved band, especially for super critical music snobs (i.e. people who read DIS). Oh damn, did i say critical, sorry i meant cynical. :)
At The Drive-In?
The only people that don't like Devo are people that haven't heard Devo
