I can't see what the big dang deal is about RHCP either. I think they're sucky, too.

Tell Me Baby is the worst song I've heard this year...bland and RHCP in auto-pilot.

Though I reckon Californication is the bees knees, and Aeroplane and Shallow Be Thy Game from OHM are cracking little tunes

Yeah, Tell Me Baby was a bad choice for single! I have no idea why they released that one instead of perfect single material like Hump De Bump and Slow Cheetah.

Yeah, 'Tell Me Baby' isn't very good at all.

The thing about RHCP is that while I like them and while they've written some decent tunes, they're not godly in any way shape or form. The guy who lives next door to me absolutely worships them, and I don't consider them anything special enough to worship. After awhile, all of their songs sound the same. I know that's a cliche criticism, but it's pretty true in some cases. This is, of course, all my opinion, but I just feel like they get a lot more credit than they deserve.

People should listen to more Wilco.

Bah people should listen to 'Hard to Concentrate' before they slag off the band.

I didn't care for them much for a while. Yeah, I liked a couple of songs, but no big deal. Then I listened to Stadium Arcadium and it grew on me. Saw them live and really enjoyed it. I play the album quite often. But to each his/her own

No interest in Radiohead whatsover. I tried listening to a CD a friend here made for me, but just didn't appeal to me (sorry Amy!) And not into Coldplay either

Gonna take Canadien's suggestion and listen to Hard To Concentrate. Again

agree

RHCP used to have a sweet spot on my music list, but Stadium Arcadium was such a let down. It has a couple songs I like..but out of 20 tracks? Lame.
John Frusciante still kicks ass, though!

Change "think" to "know," and I agree with you 500%. It took me like three weeks to finish Stadium Arcadium, it was so fiendishly bad...

Just interesting some people ready to rip U2 for sounding "mainstream" on the other hand proudly wave their worship flags for post Californication/By the way RHCP, Keane etc.

I bought it when it first came out and I still haven't finished listening to it, I figured it's just not to my taste

See. that's the thing. Everyone's tough on U2 lyrically, but bands like RHCP don't get the same scrutiny. really they have very few lyrics that make me go "wow," while U2 has a lot of those.

and for the record I love RHCP, I love the song Snow, I love Stadium Arcadium

Cliche or not, that's exactly my problem with them. I can take them in very small, spread out doses, but to sit down and listen to an album? Not so much. In fact, that overplayed piece of crap (IMO) Dani California was enough to turn me off them for the next year or so.

Let me revise and say that RHCP didn't always suck ass...but they have in the last couple of years.

Let me also revise "uninspired crap." Meant to say "uninspired drivel." Much more erudite. Plus, it rhymes with "swivel." And if I hold out the syllables, I can make it rhyme with "navel" and you see a lot of those in "California."


Yeah, I'm half-joking in my harshness. But I just don't think that they've had anything amazing in quite a while, yet they're still adored. Meanwhile, other bands get held to such amazing standards and slagged for fine details....yet a band with mostly mediocrity, a boatload of "mainstream," and a handful or two of gems shining through gets people so excited.
