Title: Bands you wished didn't exist
Post by: Cool Chris on June 13, 2018, 12:38:13 PM
The forum asked for it, Cool Chris delivers.

Go!

someone start a "bands you wish hadn't existed" thread w/e

Slayer.

The Doors
Guns n Roses
Nirvana

I can imagine a world without Nirvana, and that is coming from a lifelong PNWer. If they didn't lead the rock music scene out of the hair metal and in to grunge, someone else would have done it.

Never been a GnR fan. No comment.

I cannot imagine a classic rock world without The Doors. I get people not liking them, but I don't see the need to wish they didn't exist. They didn't do any harm to the genre.

Nirvana is the biggest one that comes to mind.

I don't see anything good coming from this thread, and foresee it just turning into fights for bashing each others' favorite bands.  But I'll see where it goes.

Don't quite understand this. Sure, we all have bands we don't like or beyond that, but if you don't like them, just don't listen to them  :lol

When it comes to some bands, like Nirvana in my case I believe they truly did damage to a genre or music in general. I think the world was worse off having had them in it. The only bad thing about Nirvana never existing would be that Dave Grohl, who became an all around stellar person and musician might not have otherwise broken into the mainstream.

Post by: Kattelox on June 13, 2018, 12:57:23 PM
The only correct answer here is Yoko Ono and her Plastic Band. (I'm half kidding.)

Respectfully, I don't at all agree with Nick's assertion that Nirvana truly did damage to a genre or music in general. I don't at all enjoy Nirvana but I push back strongly against those kinds of claims. Even Temple of the Dog, Soundgarden, etc... as much as I cannot stand them, I don't think they were a 'negative force on music' or anything like that.

Interestingly the more I think about this, nothing actually comes to mind. Anything I hate that much I can just tune out, literally and figuratively. Not one artist has had enough of a negative effect on my life to wish they didn't exist.

Still waiting for an MP-era DT fan to say Avenged Sevenfold.

To the extent that a band influenced someone else, I can't really in good conscience say anyone.  I think the Velvet Underground are WAYYYY overrated, but without them there is no REM, who I love.  I think the Doors are WAYYYY overrated, but without them there is no Kiss or Cult, who I love.   I think Nirvana is WAYYY overrated, but without them... hey, wait, maybe I found one!  :)

I'm really struggling to name one.  Sure I don't enjoy some bands, but I can't really say one that I wish flat out didn't exist. 

I don't think Nirvana deserves the hate personally.  They aren't some great band in my mind, but they have enough decent music to make me think I wouldn't want them wiped out.

Cool that you named REM. I know this is way off topic, but I just want to say that I absolutely LOVE Automatic For The People. One of the best albums of the 90s. And it has great string arrangements by none other than John freaggin Paul freaggin Jones. REM hardly get mentioned around music lovers, don't know why.

If it wasn't going to be them, it could have been some other young and upcoming band that's getting traction that wanted MP to do drums.  At least, he's partook in a good album with Nightmare.  Could be worst, it could have been Five Finger Death Punch that caused MP to leave DT.

True. For example, Despacito virtually didn't exist for me. I passed through the whole summer unscathed without ever hearing the song, or knowing it was Despacito if I ever heard it by accident.

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.

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.

^^ A female friend of mine went to see Journey and Asia last year. Only knew "Heat of the Moment" and "Don't Stop Believing" (but was still so pumped about seeing them for some reason)... lol

My whole body involuntarily twitched upon reading that   :censored

I was just reading Linda Perry (singer for 4NB) is married to Sarah Gilbert (Darlene from Roseanne). Learn somethin new every day.


I did not know that, but it totally makes sense to me.

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

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.

I have all 3 on my I-Pod.

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.

Only hit a club if there was a heavy metal band playing. I was most definitely not a club guy.

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 ....

Kids did that for me.  I get a tremendous amount of joy from music, and to watch my kid have that bond with her music... I could care less that it's Taylor Swift, One Direction or Panic! At The Disco.    In fact, I'm going to see Harry Styles tonight at Madison Square Garden with her and two of her friends.   He does a cover of "The Chain" by Fleetwood Mac, and I'm down for that (plus I LOVE his song "Sign Of The Times").   

Through those bands (and their covers) my kid now likes Queen, Fleetwood Mac and a couple other more traditionally classic bands.

Hellyeah.

Kinda think that band is responsible for the end of Mudvayne.

Yes. Especially after Mudvayne released an amazing self-titled with no tour for it. Makes me  >:(
