Nirvana - Kurt Cobain's voice irritated the hell out of me too.

REM - Sure, I can tolerate Automatic For The People, but I can't get into any of their other stuff.

Franz Ferdinand - Some of it is okay, but it's hardly original.

Green Day - BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH.

Smashing Pumpkins - I feel the same way about them as I do with Pearl Jam.

Coldplay - Don't even get me started.
Wow. I disagree with all of that.

Though you could accuse me of liking most music - accept teeny-bopper pop and Nashville country.

Nirvana, is possibly the most overrated band in the history of music (well, Sex Pistols come in at a close second).

Dave Matthews Band. Talk about overrated.

Yeah, I tried. I bought all their CD's about a year ago. (Their first album is ok). My brother and sister and I tend to like the exact same things so I thought I'd give it a shot.

I couldn't never get into Dave Matthews Band either. My ex-boyfriend loved them. They are indeed over-rated.

Pink Floyd is

Radiohead and Smashing Pumpkins are

Green Day is good if I'm in the right mood

REM is for the most part.

Nirvana is sometimes, meh at others.

Pearl Jam is good sometimes, sometimes not.

Coldplay is good but overrated.

I 'get' them all.

This was the most glaring omission from my list. I cannot enjoy a single Stones song and I really don't get why they're so popular or how they've lingered for so many years. Jagger's voice is just ... a trainwreck.

Sorry, but the Stones are great, have you never shaked your ass to Sympathy For The Devil

Pearl Jam it's my 2nd favourite band, Nirvana my 3rd, and I also love Beatles, Franz, Radiohead, Muse, Coldplay and some other bands refered in this thread.

I will only defend Nirvana, since it's being the most attacked. But calm down guys, I respect your opinion but I have to say something

They are the band that saved my from crappy rap and pop music. They (Kurt) writed great rock songs only with power chords and lame solos. Ever heard Aneurysm, In Bloom, Lounge Act, School, Serve the servants, Sliver, You Know You're Right, Dive, Pennyroyal Tea... ??

And you can also find many slower and melodic stuff. The MTV Unplugged it's just About a Girl, All Apologies, Something in the Way, Dumb »» Amazing songs.

Only Polly really sucks.


AND NOW...
the bands that I "don't get"...


The Rolling Stones
DMB
All the New Metal bands... especially Limp Bizkit
All the Punk-Pop bands except Green Day

Well, I'm still waiting for someone to say Oasis, Mettalica, Guns 'N' Roses, RHCP and Iron Maiden... from my favourites bands these were not stated.

Yeah, I like U2, Coldplay, Radiohead and Oasis at the same time.
And I like Nirvana and Guns

I don't get the head banging heavy metal stuff where the singers are screaming and you can't make out anything they are screaming about, people are all dressed solemly in black like at a wake or funeral, looking half dead or throwing themselves at one another in a mosh pit.

I hope you aren't thinking of Metallica and Iron Maiden.

Radiohead, output after "The Bends". Everyone else can love them as much as they like, I just like them when they used melody.

Nick Cave. He's a major deity in Australia, but again,

The Libertines and Babyshambles. I cannot stand either.

Razorlight, The Bravery, The Killers, Kaiser Chiefs, The Futureheads, Hard-Fi. That whole wave of bands. I just can't take to them. In my ears, they all merge into one at some point.

Led Zeppelin - lord knows I've tried, but apart from a few songs they just don't do anything for me.

Pearl Jam - I always found them kinda frustrating. I think Eddie Vedder is an -amazing- frontman, with one of rock's coolest voices and great presence, but again, apart from a few individual songs their music generally bores me.
