What music acts have you done a U-Turn on and discovered you actually like now. Radiohead was the latest for me. Had The Bends album for about 10 yrs but never really gave them a chance as i thought their music was depressing and boring. Now they in my top 5 faves

Kaiser Chiefs, used to think they were a scummy band, but they slowly but surely grew on me and are now one of me favourite live acts.

For some weird reason I didn't like Illinoise much at all at first. One day about a year after it came out, Seer's Tower came on and I loved it. Listened to the album again a number of times and liked more and more songs each time. Have since bought a number more of his records and have been won over.

Grateful Dead. I was so against hippies and drug users in high school, and didn't want anything to do with that scene.

I'm not any kind of huge fan now, and still am not crazy about the jam band culture, but about 4 years ago I stumbled across a few CDs my stepmother had, and I now have a couple albums and can appreciate some of their stuff.

I liked Michigan earlier, but yeah, Seer's Tower was kind of confirmation for me liking Illinois. It turned Casimir Pulaski Day from a boring ballad into one of my favourite songs of the decade.

Had OK Comp for a while, hated it, then gave it a full spin, now I'm quite into them

Tom Petty.

Rock stars with blonde hair never convinced me until i heard Runnin' Down A Dream and found out it was by him. i've reaped the rewards ever since.

Morphine. I got one of their albums ages ago, thought it was boring, haven't played it for seven years or so, then tried it again this year and discovered I actually liked it a lot.

With many bands/artists I love now it was more a case of getting used to the vocals that put me off their music, most notably Bjork and Muse.

I didn't give Rush a chance until all my musician friends went on about their talent (I hear their recent stuff isn't that great though)
