Guilty pleasures, pt. 2

I know I saw a thread like this 6 months ago, so I say it's time for a new one.

The game? Tell us what artists/albums/songs you listen to that would garner s from other members of interference.

I'll start.

Artists:
Kanye West
Nelly Furtado
Maroon 5
Aerosmith
Def Leppard

Albums:
Gwen Stefani - Love. Angel. Music. Baby.
Green Day - American Idiot

See, beneath my indietastic exterior, I actually am human.

For one, I really enjoy How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb.

Oh, and I also like X & Y.

Sugababes....though I don't really consider it a guilty pleasure, I actually think they have some great songwriters workin for them

Don't know if it's a guilty pleasure, but I really like Alanis Morrissette and The Corrs!

Yeah, it's pretty much a guilty pleasure

I've always liked a quote I heard once on a Word magazine podcast which said that there should be no quilty pleasures since being cool has long since become the new conformity since everyone is trying to be a certain way and to exhibit a certain taste in music. Even better, the podcast then proceeded to blame the whole nonsense on Noel Gallagher for defining what was cool to listen to.

Listen to whatever you want as long as you think it's good and don't expect other people to like it too!

I would say that Britney's Baby One More Time is a great pop song but then it's probably become cool to say that too so is it still a 'guilty pleasure'?!

PS I am in no way trying to knock LemonMelon for starting this thread, because I do think there are a lot of people here who would comment so on people's tastes, just making a comment.

Why would Green Day and Kanye West count as guilty pleasures?

Mine are cheesy pop stuff like Kylie Minogue, Sugababes, Kelly Clarkson, some of Britney Spears' stuff.

But I don't feel guilty about any of my pleasures.

The Game. His lyrics are terrible, but those beats are Church for Thugs and It's Okay (One Blood) are killin' it.

I love Linkin Park, but I don't really consider that a guilty pleasure. I like a lot of bands like that - Breaking Benjamin, Trust Company, Lostprophets, ect. Oh, and I love Alien Ant Farm. One of my favourite bands. Wouldn't normally be a guilty pleasure, but around here... they're really a great band; there's much more to them than their cover of Smooth Criminal.

I bought "Kiss Me Deadly" by Lita Ford on Itunes a couple of weeks ago after hearing it out at a dive bar... i also like a little Poison every once in a while- it brings me back to elementary school.

I hate hair metal in general, but I will cop to loving "Here I Go Again" by Whitesnake and any number of Def Leppard songs.

A Flock of Seagulls (especially "Space Age Love Song")

Christina Aguilera (especially "Candyman.")

Madonna

Pink

Does No Doubt count as a guilty pleasure?

Agreed 100%. That whole album is an improvement, as far as I've heard.
