Ok, let's do this.
*ducks for cover*...
It's not a very good joke tbh.
The Beach Boys/Brian Wilson.
Fucking Fleet Foxes.
are my favourite British band in existence right now. Even close to Radiohead who it appears people also hate.
but no need to hate the band.
Blimey. What's not to like?
that's a lot of hate for elbow. is it all based on the second half of their career though? Level-headed elbow fans all hate 'One Day Like This' and 'Open Arms' - who couldn't?
but everything I've heard by them sounds like Sting
an improvement of sorts, I suppose
before the last album.
BANDWAGONING TWATS. YEAH YOU.
one lp: hmm, pretty interesting
another lp: ok, this is their style
next one: heard it before
next: f@*k these stupid lookin' boring-ass f@8kers. what's on TV?
The Laziest River was pretty good and I haven't heard much else. I really shouldn't be validating this thread.
All the bands.
and The The?
there's probably more but I cannea think of them right now.
Blood Red Shoe's total snorefest.
...though even their most ardent apologists seemed to have given up on them by about 2009
Couldn't be bothered to learn how to set up their amps properly, managed to pass it off as 'art'
Mystery Jets (post-Making Dens)
So fucking over hyped. Listened to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and it's unilaterally 35 seconds of a song mixed into some sound effects, then another 30 seconds of something else, then more sound effects. Fucking toss.
....i feel guilty for this-ing now.
Don't hate actually just ridiculously overrated...except for Arcangel...that be good.
+ probably a load of other tedious bands that have been mentioned here in the last two years.
Wild Beasts, no. They're pretty magical and do their own thing, especially live.
The only answer that ever gets any response is 'The Walkmen... apart from The Rat, which was pretty good'.
You don't like a band. No need to cry about it.
pre 1988. Sorry.
truly, who likes that crap? Patti Smith?
Anything to do with Dohertineshambles. There's more to being a 'poet' than having a drug habit.
She is only ok.
Oasis. I'd rather Lick a tramp.
Gallagher and those Flying birds. Seriously?
Coldplay. Can music get anymore predicatble and soulless? They did have a good first album
Glad I'm not the only to be relatively unmoved by the Beatles and Radiohead.
To add to the list: Led Zepellin.
Gorillaz are fucking DIRE.
Most over rated tosh ever. Hands down the worst band I've ever seen live.
FUCKING SLEIGH BELLS
= Lift Muzak for Hipsters
While I'm here, can someone explain why Florence & The Machine are so popular? She really, really can't sing without yelping out of tune and yet the masses still want more?
I agree with theShipment's linked up there ^
arcade fire, bon iver, animal collective, all that shit. I'm starting to think the only worthwhile stuff is 60s soul, New Orleans r&b & rocksteady.
but this is a really embarrassing thread
Music people have discussion about music.
It's not music people having a discussion about music
that you suddenly find this thread embarrassing after partaking in it just because a couple of other people said they thought it was silly.
but I will say I love Wild Beasts more than most bands on earth.
I picked up the Black Holes album when it released, probably because I had heard it was a real beauty, didn't like it one bit.
The singer has a voice I could never grow to like.
but Origin of Symmetry and Absolution, YES
list of some our best bands. (Mine is White Stripes by the way)
...........through tthis thread so if it's already said apologies, but can I add Kings of Leon.
Or am I wrong?
They kicked ass up to and including Youth and Young Manhood.
Now when I listen to the first album I find it not so good.
...I meant KOL full stop. Never liked them.
I didn't think they were a band to actively hate.
For a start, they're not that popular. I recently saw them play for about 20 people. They don't get the recognition they deserve.
Dull as fuck.
Just don't get it
Dull as dishwater. Music wasn't so terrible in the early 90s that people had to resort to this, surely?
Unbearable wankery. Bafflingly bad. Sonic adobes of stultifying hipsterdom.
You guys are just reading out my winamp library.
