I mean if you like Phish, you're going to want to get everything they made.

i don't think there is anything to "get" about phish or dmb, save for the fact that they suck.

i can somewhat apreciate sigur ros, but i've heard three of their albums (ab, open parenthesis/close parenthesis, and takk) and it just seems like they are doing the same shit on all of those albums. plus they seem to have their heads too far up their asses for their own good.

i suppose i can't "get" why pavement is supposed to be so amazing, what i've heard of them has had little or no impact on me. i've also never really been able to get into sonic youth. i do like their "commercial" albums (goo, dirty), it's their tuneless noisy stuff (what they do best, apparently) that i don't really care for.

The main thing I don't get about Phish phandom is the whole "stop bathing" thing.

Well the one I don't get is The Mars Volta. A lot of people seem to be hailing them as the greatest thing to happen to music ever, when that's far from the truth. They aren't nearly as incredible as everyone makes them out to be. The singer's voice is painful. Some of the instrumentation is pretty cool, but the lyrics make absolutely no sense. People think they are so profound just because they use a lot of big words for the sake of using big words.

It's OKAY at best. They're not as incredible as people are making them out to be though.

Maybe I don't "get it".

And since we're on the topic of Sigur Ros, let me just express my sweet, sweet love for them.

Led Zeppelin is one of the greatest bands of all time.

I don't 'get' Kanye West. Everyone says he's different from other rappers and is so great and this and that, and NO. He's the SAME as every other rapper out there, he just uses less obscenities. I don't get it. There's nothing special about him as a hip-hopper/rapper.

There are many bands I don't like, but one I definitely don't GET is The Fiery Furnaces. People say they are genius and I say "wtf?"

How did our eyes get so red?
And what the hell is on Joey's head?

it's very easy to replace phish with any other band name.





i don't get electronic music, more specifically certain kinds, but i'm not knowledgable enough to know exactly which ones. do i hate drum n bass? probably. trance? fuck, i don't know what trance is. happy hardcore, now that stuff makes me want to kill people...but eh. i don't know. i don't understand how anyone can enjoy listening to repetetive thudding beats, though. it doesn't make me want to dance, it makes me want to stab steak knives into my ears.

A small list:

The Beatles - I do not "get it" with the Beatles AT ALL. And I've copped heaps of shit for this, but whenever I listen to their music, it just does entirely nothing for me.
Nirvana - Not only do they do nothing for me, they genuinely bug me and grate on my ears. Next, please.
The Arcade Fire - This one I'm hesitant to judge, as I haven't heard what I'd deem a significant enough chunk of their material, but what I have heard has not enthused me and doesn't seem worthy of all the accolades people here love to chuck at them.
Radiohead - I enjoy Radiohead in small chunks; more than a few songs and Thom Yorke's voice starts to bother me. I don't understand the "let's worship Radiohead as the god and saviour of music" mentality.
Coldplay - I'll just leave it at this.
Maroon 5 - Everyfuckingone at my school loved them in 2004 and I never understood why.
Green Day - I have just one word to describe this band, and it is 'pathetic'.
The Killers - See Green Day.

That should do for now.

I hate most stuff labelled 'progressive'. It's just utterly dull. If I wanted great exhibitions of instrumental prowess I'd listen to jazz.

I also really don't like the 70s as a musical decade, apart from punk/new wave and certain musicians such as Nick Drake.
