Unpopular music opinions take II

'twas a good thread and all.

I start today by saying that I really don't like grunge and from what I've heard of the two bands I prefer the Foo Fighters over Nirvana.

might as well start with a bang, y'know.

Can the Foo Fighters really be considered grunge, though? Other than the Dave Grohl connection, of course.

A missed opportunity to rebrand the thread something more appropriate. Like "Opinions are divisive, so there are probably going to be people who think your opinions are crap, so don't bitch when it happens."

The realm of Grunge according to me:

Pearl Jam
Soundgarden
Alice in Chains
Smashing Pumpkins
Nirvana
Stone Temple Pilots
Mudhoney

Laz and I had a small Foo Fighters discussion just now in the Them Crooked Vultures thread (Grohl's new band, for those of you who don't know), but I'm definitely in the FF > Nirvana boat.

It should also be said that opinions are like assholes, and if one was able to offer up more than one of the latter at a time, your family would be living like royalty.

Foo Fighters part of that post-grunge category that has spawned bands such as Live, Goo, Gin Blossoms, Nickelback, Creed, Seether, Staind, Puddle of Mudd? Maybe? Or is that label worn out?

Unpopular opinion, Taylor Swift is ugly, and looks like a spoilt 9 year old brat who thinks she' s a pretty little princess but isn't.

Taylor Swift really isn't all that good looking, I'll go that far. Certainly not ugly by any stretch of the imagination of course.

Fair dinkum, out of the current crop of female solo artists to recently emerge, Swifty has got nothing. She'salso up against one of the greatest physically admirable women of all time. Katy Perry.

Katy Perry is attractive when she's not working so hard at being an obnoxious attention whore. (Which seems to be about 90% of the time.)

So there will be no killing from me.

As far as the big current pop stars go, I'm comfortable throwing Katy Perry in the #1 spot. Sex on wheels, even if her music is awful.

Swift is cute, not gorgeous, and she looked a lot better with brown hair during a couple of her SNL sketches this past week. And has anyone mentioned how terrible of a host she was yet? I know she's really young and everything, but at least try to make cue card reading a little less obvious. Either way, her music is still pretty solid, and that I can respect. It's not something I actively seek out, but it passes the "won't turn it off" test. That's something.
