There's no escaping such songs and worse if you got kids  :biggrin:

I'm a metalhead who hangs out with other metalheads, I don't listen to the radio, when going to work I use my muuuuusic plaaayeeeeer and during car trips I listen to CDs or compilations from the USB pen. It's not that hard, especially if you don't go to the disco or spend your whole vacation lying on a beach all day long, to avoid commercial songs, to the point that you barely recognize them if you ever heard them in passing.

But yeah, I imagine that having kids makes it all more difficult  :D

Only bands/artists I REALLY hate (and wish they didn't exist because they grate on me that much) are:

U2
Simply Red
The Pet Shop Boys

God, I can't stand them!

Over 12,000 songs in my iTunes and I am proud to say that I have zero songs by Nickelback, Kiss or Pearl Jam in it.  :tup :tup

I can't really think of any band that I hate so much that I want them erased from music history.

Though there are some that I would consider no big loss

And his moment time's undoing

I wish Dream Theater didn't exist so that we would never have had this amazing online community.

I went reading as welll... they had a single album and a single hit before breaking up.

I mean, DT has a single hit as well, but at least they didn't split up after Images and Words  ;D


Sometimes don't you feel for these kind of bands? known to the general public for one or two songs mostly, and the average concert goer caring only for said hits?

Imagine a scenario where DT break it even bigger than they did in 1992, but falling into not infinity, but total obscurity shortly after, and their concerts in small venues attended by 10-20 dedicated fans, and everyone else showing up only to hear Pull Me Under.

Your iPod sucks then.  :)   

There's at least a strong Greatest Hits for all three (and I would say "Ten" is essential listening). 

Speaking of 4NB, the girl that opened for Myles Kennedy in New York (Chloe Lowery) busted that out (it's called "What's Up?") after butchering "Me And Bobby McGee", and  before "Chandelier" by Sia.

Kiss and Pearl Jam I would have expected, but Nickelback??

I like certain songs early in their career but by 2010 I gave up.  That on your face, no dimension sound wore me down.

U2 has a nice collection of good songs from the 80's and early 90s. Couldn't care less about their newer stuff.

I'm a huge fan but their last few albums have not grabbed me at all

I love The Joshua Tree and How To Dismantle is a great album too. I don't know their other albums that well, but I might check them out in the future. They're one of those bands I like, but nothing more.

Man. I didn't think about this but for the sake of entertaining the premise of this thread, I would agree with this. I continue to find more songs by STP that I've heard for a long time but didn't know they did them, and oof. Dead and Bloated is in the running for worst rock song ever.

This is largely "Bands I Hate" but the B-52s. Because damn if that Love Shack song didn't dominate the airwaves in the 80s, not to mention Rock Lobster. My favorite dance club always played those two songs, and both songs were automatic pee breaks. So maybe I should be thankful that crap band wrote those songs, as it always gave me a good time to hit the head.

Favorite dance club? When the hell was that ever a thing? Seems to me that the B-52's would be the best thing played in a f'n dance club.


I'm gonna forget I even read that.


would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

Honestly, ever since I grew out of my teenage prog snob/music elitist phase, I've developed a "live and let live" attitude regarding music. If, for example, some friends have bonded over their love for Nickelback or Justin Bieber's songs have helped someone through rough times, then who am I to take that away from them? I may not be into stuff like that myself, but I wouldn't wish they never existed simply out of selfishness.

Nickelturd - just hate their sound, everything sounds the same
Foo Fighters - see above
Green Day - so called punk, just annoyingly bad
Nirvana - never clicked with me, destroyed metal in the early 90's
The Cure - urgh ....
