Bands You Don't "Get."

There's always that one band that's really big, and you don't understand why people like them so much and you feel left out. This thread is for you to tell us what bands you find unappealing that most other people do and why.

My big one is Sigur Ros. I don't understand why people like them so much. It's elevator music that puts you to sleep.

Others are Radiohead and Coldplay, but I can see why people like them. I like a lot of Radiohead. I think they are way overrated, but swell nonetheless.

I just don't understand why people like Sigur Ros. Can Sigur Ros fans clear this up for me?

nirvana... i didnt like them while kurt was alive and i dont like them anymore after he died. i think the music is crummy , his voice is horrible and they're way too overrated.

tool/a perfect circle... i cant stand their fans, everyone ive met who likes them....really likes them and preach about them like a religion.

the grateful dead...while i do like thier music, i dont get people's obsession with them...then again by people I mean hippies...then again i dont do drugs

and the biggest of them all, the one that just about gets me lynched for not liking is...

Led Zeppelin... i can't stand their lyrics, i could care less for them...and the fact that everyone wears the damn tshirts, patches and swear by them make me like them even less


I'm sure i'll think of more later

Elevation2u:

I'm with you exactly on all of them, except Nirvana. Though I think they are overrated as well.

Led Zeppelin is the new rock critic's Beatles. Thankfully I think U2 will become the dominant rock band in critical writing. I could be wrong and I don't know if it will be a good thing either.

Led Zeppelin is the band that everyone seems to "get" but I never have and don't think I ever will. I don't find anything overly apealing about them. There are other bands that I dislike way more than Zeppelin but for how "legendary" they are I just don't understand why. If I had grown up in the 70's I doubt I'd have dug them even then.

My brother and sister love Counting Crows. I've tried, but I just can't really get into them.

Yes, I get them. I like their early stuff. They have a fine mix of AAA, and Amer Trad, and Jazz. However, I don't understand why they're so popular nowadays, because all of their recent singles have been crap IMHO. They're a good house band for you're favorite bar, but I don't think they deserve international attention. Maybe it was marketing and that one hit song.

I mean they're good background music, but I don't know why people are head over heels about them, and actually go to the concerts. I just don't understand why they're so big.

you've tried? that's more than I've done

Dave Matthews Band. Talk about overrated.

Bob Marley...well, let me explain. It's the fans that drive me nuts. Dumbass stoner hippie-wannabe kids that wear Bob Marley shirts and use his music as an excuse to smoke pot and play hackeysack all day. What a waste of life. Marley had some decent stuff and I like the political level, but I think he's overrated, but then again I'm not much into reggae in general.
