Albums and artists everyone loves, but you hate....

Or maybe not hate, but you could never get into them for one reason or another....

For me....

Fiery Furnaces- ok, i have to admit, i jumped into the FF hype machine early and may even have said I liked them a bit, but that wore thin very quick. Now I cant stand em....

Bruce Springsteen- flame away Springsteen lovers. For one reason or another, I never have "dug" the boss. Ive got nothing creative for a reason. I just never was able to stomach him for long.

Oasis- yes, Oasis. I love Brit-pop, and I dont love Oasis. Maybe I dont hate them, but I refuse to buy anything they put out.

Matchbox 20- im sorry, adult contemporary mainstays arent up my alley.

Metallica- I know I know, they rawk. Not in my book......

Please don't flame me but I've never particularly cared for Radiohead. I find them ok at best.
I agree on the Metallica. I just can't stand Lars...

Yes, definitely Springsteen. 'The Streets of Filadelfia' I can stand, bot somehow I can't stomach the rest. Maybe he's just too American for my European taste ?
Pet hate: Celine Dion . What a bore! When I heard what did to Cyndi Lauper's 'I drove All Night', I nearly screamed !
All those Britney - J Lo - etc. crap bimbos

wouldn't say hate, but falling under this category:

Muse
Bjork

and the ambivalent one:

Jeff Buckley (barring 'Hallelujah' and a couple of other tunes)

mostly to do with the singing, for all three. but, as the good u2popmofo is wont to remind us, music is all subjective.

besides, all of you are cool.

POP PUNK.

I'd rather chop my balls of with a rusty screwdriver than listen to those "bands".

Of course, just simply saying that there are always a handful of bands that everyone loves that you just cant get into.
Or havent gotten into them, not because you "hate" them even, there just isnt enough time in the day.

And I knew you would say Muse....

Nora Jones: I really don't get what's so great about her. (However, I love Katie Melua. I don't see the resemblence, but most people thinks it's weird I like her and not Nora).

Coldplay: I think there okay, but for the most part, I think all their songs sound the same.

Metallica
Nickleback
David Gray
Train
John Mayer

bruce springsteen, definitely

the rolling stones

coldplay

morcheeba

frank zappa--no disrespect to zappa, the man was a genius, but his music sounds like one big huge nightmare to me (the person who tried to force this on me also told me that he wished that i liked u2 less, you can guess what happened there, heh)

talking heads/david byrne

prodigy

post-1989 rem (i can hear the gasps. sorry, but it's true)

rush

dave matthews band (apologies to all my good friends who adore dave, but he's just not my cup of tea)

definitely matchbox 20 and metallica as well (lars sucks)

i could go on, but i'll stop here for now.
