Acts you don't "get"

To be fair I think the first Editors album's pretty decent.

I don't really have any thing against them but I have a lot of friends that used to frequently compare the 2 bands and Editors came up trumps with them.

After loving Neon Bible by Arcade Fire I just couldn't get into any of their other stuff, I just didn't see the appeal.

 

And Red Hot Chilli Peppers, which is weird because I like many bands with nonsensical lyrics, but for some reason I despise their lyrics/songs.

Foos. When I heard they were headlining I borrowed a heap of cds and tried my best but it never clicked. Went across to the Park  instead. 

Ditto. 

Them and Muse

Some very talented individuals but

Muse is all cock and no balls.

Foos all balls and no cock.

Maybe you'll like Arcade Fire more when you understand their approach to song writing a little better http://www.clickhole.com/video/mind-master-watch-arcade-fires-win-butler-describe-6585

Now, that is is surprise in this thread. Thought everyone loved this. That said, only probably sounds SO good when you are there, and very, very drunk.

The fucking Krankies. It's probably not their fault that they are positioned at the very bending edge of sanity, but there we go. It is possible that I would have to kill again, if I were to come across them in person.

I don't like deviants.

Yes, yes. I do see the irony.

Love 'n' kisses.

Just like the Village People, every one of them had their own vibe  

But because the Village People came first, all of the good vibes were already taken.

I get RHCP.

I just think they're fucking terrible.

Two acts...

Peace and Catfish and the Bottlemen, both indie landfill or though I'd say Peace are better than the latter and alright live

Any dj type acts along the lines of fat boy slim, David Guetta, Calvin Harris etc....... probably because I'm over 50 :)

Each to their own though.

Out of interest, what makes them so special? To me they are very dull, very samey and repetitive. I get its good, reliable, badass rock n roll but after a few listens it really is nothing special, in my opinion

Oh ditto. I'm gonna add Fleetwood Mac to the mix as well. Why the love for that prick who scalps his fans for photo ops then looks like a miserable c**t in the pictures. They ain't all that.

Loving this thread.

Primarily because I haven't seen Queen or Rush mentioned yet.

Good, reliable, badass rock n roll probably covers it but, at least up until Back In Black, they were the best at what they did. Love of music is difficult to quantify but it stirs my soul and there's not much more you can ask than that. 

I get how it can sound repetitive to some  and they don't often venture far from the path but as with most bands, delve a little deeper and there's at least some level of variety. You Shook Me is a straight up pop song, Night Prowler is a dirty blues number, there's others I could bore you with but yeah.... most everything else is heads down, 4/4 rock tastic boogle. Give me that over experimental navel gazing any day of the week.
