I think that where you put you meant to put because you just described excellent, talented, intelligent music.

As for my five bands, I'll do that later as I need to race out the door to class now. Yay me for not being aware of the time!

1. Nirvana- I just don't see the appeal of this group. I like some of the other bands that came out of Seattle but I go under with these guys.
2. The Rolling Stones- Minus a few songs, I find them to be quite boring.
3. Radiohead- This is just a personal opinion, in the eyes of others they could be a great group. They don't create any emotion in me. They sound like advanced elevator music.
4. Bon Jovi- I just can't get into thier music.
5. Bruce Springsteen- Like Radiohead probably a great artist but not one that gels with me.

It's not hard to see why punk rock happened...
What?! How can the type of Progressive Rock you're talking about be boring?
Listen to: Starship Trooper by Yes, Communion With The Sun by Utopia, and Dogs by Pink Floyd. Then try and say that Prog Rock is boring.
I respect you opinion but you're way off if you think extended guitar and drums solos by some of the most talented musicians of all-time are boring.

Zootlesque, I'm happy to put another vote in for Springsteen. Remembering that this is not a talent vote. Great writer, but the music...... zzzzzzz..... boring.

Nice to see two of my very favorite groups listed. Different strokes, I guess, because I find them two of the most interesting and innovative groups going these days.

Now now, Canadiens.. are you sure that's a 'these bands bore the hell outta me' list or is it a hate-list?
I'm not very adventurous in finding my music but off the top of my head some bands that I see absolutely no appeal to:

-Maroon 5
-Fallout Boy
-Michael Jackson
-Postal Service/Death Cab
-Dave Matthew's Band

Prog to me is like Rahul Dravid. Technically sound, but a bit like watching paint dry. Block, block, block.

Anyway, I can Barley stand Guns And Roses....I can scream and moan into a microphone and people would pay to see me?

Here's my list:

1>. Rolling Stones - as I've said in earlier Threads of this nature, I really never "got" this band. Lyrically their music is just above the Monkeys and Musically they are so inept, you could take any garage band and they could sound better than these guys.

2>. Nirvana - most over rated band of all time in my opinion.

3>. Oasis - I loathe this band

4>. NickelBack - these guys have to be kidding, right?

5>. Tie - Stained, Fuel and all of these so called "angry" new "meteal(?)" type bands. Talk about boring

I was going to make a Chris Tavare reference but, well, he was before my time.

Listened to Parachutes on my way to work today. I'm sorry but could the 2nd half be any more boring??? It's almost like listening to elevator music/Norah Jones. And I cannot stand Martin's falsetto in songs like Spies and Trouble. Other than that, I do like a bunch of the songs on here esp. on the first half.
