Bands you wished didn't exist
« 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.

I thought this was a joke :D

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.

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.

Nothing will make me change the radio station faster than a Nickelback song, so I guess them. Oh, and maybe Culture Club.

Maybe you are on the wrong channel? :p

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.

Leonard Skinard. There were much better bands in the southern rock genre, but most people only think of them.

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.

Oh I didn't mean to imply I won't listen to them because my parents like them. Toto IV is my favorite album of all time and I talk about Toto with my mom a lot!  Def Leppard, Van Halen, GnR, ACDC... yeah man. :biggrin:

Girl you know it's. Girl you know it's. Girl you know it's. Girl you know it's.

In all fairness, I prefer that they existed and we got that gem of a trainwreck and that they ended up crashing and burning hard that they did than them not existing at all.

And again I'll say: Adrenaline Mob.

A couple others are Anthrax and Slayer.
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

Nothing will make me change the radio station faster than a Nickelback song

Maybe you are on the wrong channel? :p

I know, right? The rock station I infrequently listen to can be really bizarre like that. Yesterday they suckered me in with Iron Maiden - The Trooper , followed by Def Leppard - Let it Rock, followed by Dio - Holy Diver, followed by Nickelback - Rockstar... *change channel*
