The Band/Artist you hate the most.

Recommended Posts

An easier question than "band you love the most". When it comes to music I'm really not a hater. There are many artists I don't really like, but can still appreciate that others do. There is however one band that I  just cannot stomach. Never been able to. I can't quite explain why I can't stand these guys, but they are really the only band that I  CANNOT tolerate. That band is "POISON". I truly believe that these guys were responsible for the demise of Glam/Sleaze/Hard Rock at the time. Harsh I know, but again let me emphasis that this is the only Band/Artist that I  feel this way about. Don't know why they irk me so much in particular.

.......okay, "Fallen Angel" is not a bad track. ;)

For me without a doubt it is Aerosmith.

Never did understand the ravenous appeal.

Always despised them and can't think of a "Fallen Angel" to appreciate from the band...

Slayer - Don't like their music at all and I don't understand why so many headbangers like them so much.

I find this basically impossible to answer. I guess the ones I'd hate the most I just don't listen to. So how do I pick one? What's the criteria? Looking at Glen's list, I do think Van Halen and Led Zeppelin are incredibly over-rated, and I do hate most their music (apart from a handful of VH songs) but do I actually hate them? I certainly don't hate them. I just don't think they're any good. 

Anyway... actually, I don't know. I'd probably have to pass. Stuff like Tattooed Love Boys, Rock City Angels, Quireboys are dreadful too... but do I hate the bands? Nah, they're just rubbish.

... and as for Poison being responsible for the demise of the genre, I can't agree with that. If anything, I'd lean towards the opposite. They sold a lot of albums and had a massive fanbase and generated a lot of interest in the genre. By the time the genre started dying they'd more or less lost their glam image and gained a little respect too. 

Anyway, to each their own. I personally think the hundreds of Poison copycats and cheap clones probably hurt the genre a lot more than they did themselves. ;)

Agree with Led Zep. Maybe not my generation, but then again neither were the BEatles, but I dig them.

I don't hate any band, I just choose not to listen to those I don't like.

Some bands that others like a lot but never did it for me are

Metallica - like a few songs but not the music generally
Airbourne - don't really like anything
ACDC - like many songs, but not most of it. Repetitive, boring
Slayer
Megadeth
Pantera
Motorhead
Dream Theatre
A lot of synthy, poppy AOR :)

Love Poison though.
Not a huge Aerosmith fan, but like some of their stuff. Prefer them to ACDC. Their "fallen Angel" song for me would be "Angel" or "Living On The Edge"

Nirvana. The advent of downtuned guitars and "I hate my miserable life" music, aka "The Seattle Sound", whose popularity ushered in the demise of the '80s party metal we all love.

To this day, if I hear a Nirvana song, I change the channel/skip the song.

To be honest though, that's true of all grunge bands (Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, etc.), but Nirvana is the epitome of everything wrong in music. Music so horrid and contemptible that Kurt Kaboom woke up one morning, looked at what he had inflicted upon society, and blew his brains out.

*spit*

I have to agree with a previous poster, I do not hate any bands but there are always a few that I dislike....the one that jumps to mind for me is ...

Iron Maiden....definitely overrated....

I'm not surprised that many do not like the major bands from the 70s(such as Led Zep and Aerosmith, 2 bands that I love) as that is a generational thing...which is probably why I can't stand most of the 'modern' rock/metal bands .....

Nirvana (and Pearl Jam) would be right up there for me too.  I could not (and still can't) stand any songs they released.  That alone would be enough, but as you mentioned the real reason I dislike them so much is the drastic, negative changes that happened in the hard rock scene following their swift rise in popularity.

Yeah, my comment about Poison being responsible for our music's demise was slightly tongue in cheek, although I still havd a deep seething hatred for them. As for the others bands mentioned, I get it with most of them, especially Motorhead, Slayer and Pearl Jam. I always felt kind of guilty for not liking Motorhead and never understood their appeal.

Okay, I'll tag onto Dan's line of reason here. Not Nirvana specifically, but that whole grunge style is a genre I do actually hate. Horrible music. Hard to pinpoint any single band as I hate it all, but that's a great lot to pick from. Grunge, and Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

I'd probably add Anthrax to the list of bands that I never really got.

Good call on the Chili Peppers Geoff. Another band that has escaped logic for their popularity and for me not a listenable tune in their catalog.

Agree also with Chilli Peppers. Some songs are cool, mainly radio ones.
Re anthrax, I'd also generally agree. Some songs are pretty good on their own, but never got in to them.

Maiden, however I don't get. Doesn't compute how someone could feel that way with such a large catalogue and range of music.
But then again, people would say the same about me and Preist I guess.

I can add one to my list. DLR Van Halen. Of course I dig Jump, Panama, Hot For Teacher, etc, but most of their early stuff is very meh to me. Love Van Hagar though.

I also agree with the Chilli Peppers and Motorhead....also I'll add Queensryche to the mix....I've never been a big fan of Anthrax but I like a lot of their stuff....as for Van Halen, I love the DLR years and would be quite happy if the Van Hagar years never existed...lol

Haha, sounds like we may be onto something with Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Sorry, Cure, but their radio songs are more or less the only ones I know and the reason I hate them so much, lol. They have absolutely 0 redeeming qualities. I can honestly say that I absolutely, whole-heartedly hate ever song I have ever heard from them. ;)

All these other bands you doods are mentioning I agree with two. I like less than 5 Queensryche songs, no Motorhead or Anthrax I can think of... Judas Priest etc. But the thing with those bands is that they don't offend me. Grunge and Red Hot Chilli Peppers do. :)

Always loved their version of "Higher Ground", but that's a cover so I  guess it doesn't count as a RHCP's song.

Airbourne - If they were serious in what they were doing then I hate it.

 

Dream Theatre

Anthrax - We are metal! You're not! Big deal! Can you say "Self-righteous"?

    • From Frontiers: Here's your first taste of JORN's new covers album, "Heavy Rock Radio II - Executing The Classics": 'Lonely Nights' by Bryan Adams. As usual, JORN takes a song and puts his own unique stamp on it, as only he can. Tremendous! "Heavy Rock Radio II - Executing The Classics" is out January 24, 2020. Pre-order here: https://radi.al/HRRII For more details about the release, keep on reading.... Simply one of the greatest rock singers of our time, Jorn Lande returns with a second installment of covers of classics from artists and bands that have meant something special to him and helped forge this talented man's own unique style. Through Jorn's extensive career, which includes more than 40 albums of mostly original songs, he has recorded great versions of several rock classics from classic bands such as DIO, Thin Lizzy, UFO, Deep Purple, and many more. Every song JORN covers is treated with the utmost respect and "Jorn-ized" accordingly, just like the first "Heavy Rock Radio" album showed with amazing cover versions of evergreen songs such as "I know There's Something Going On", "Hotel California", "You're The Voice," "Running Up That Hill," and several others. Fans showed a lot of enthusiasm and interest for those versions, so a follow-up covers album seemed a no-brainer. This second album, "Heavy Rock Radio II – Executing The Classics", is not an ordinary album of cover songs, it is truly a songbook of hits. Featured - among others - are great versions of Pages’ "I Do Believe in You," Foreigner's "Night Life", Don Henley's "New York Minute," Deep Purple's "Bad Attitude," a stunning metal version of Peter Gabriel's "The Rhythm of the Heat," and of course an unmissable Dio cover, "Mystery". More "jukebox" type of covers include "Quinn the Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)" originally recorded by Bob Dylan, Bryan Adams' "Lonely Night", Jackie DeShannon "Needles And Pins", and a very personal choice from the man himself, a Russ Ballard song, “Winning”. Jorn says: "The most important thing was to treat these songs with respect towards the original versions, my goal was always to think that the original artist would be honoured and find my version relevant. At the same time my intention was never to try to compete with the original song and artist, but make it a strong alternative version to enjoy." Jorn's catalogue is getting too long to include in brief press statements, and his innovative and creative skills have led to him selling millions of albums worldwide and being a frequent entry on sales charts around the world, including Billboard. Worth a mention is his years with German based Masterplan, whom he recorded three albums with. Jorn continues his rock crusade, and there are no signs of him slowing down yet. Tracklist: 1. Lonely Nights 2. Winning 3. New York Minute 4. Needles And Pins 5. Love 6. I Do Believe In You 7. Nightlife 8. Bad Attitude 9. Quinn The Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn) 10. Mystery 11. The Rhythm Of The Heat 12. Hotel California (Remastered - Bonus Track) 13. The Final Frontier (Radio Edit - Bonus Track) 14. Die Young (Radio Edit - Bonus Track) 15. Naked City (Radio Edit - Bonus Track) 16. Ride LIke The Wind (Remastered - Bonus Track) Line-up: Jorn Lande - vocals Jgor Gianola - guitars Trond Holter - guitars Tore Moren - guitars Luca Princiotta - guitars Andrea Seveso - guitars  Sid Ringsby - bass Alessandro Del Vecchio - keyboards Francesco Jovino - drums      
    • Mine arrived today so ill get a few listens over the weekend  
    • I've not even listened to Tesla 
    • Think part of the problem is that last track should have been called 'off and off' instead of 'on and on'. Really adds nothing. 
    • As bland as the mafia factory could conjure up.
    • I liked it 9 really great tracks off that one My current top albums 1. Cats In Space 2. The New Roses 3. Tesla 4. Donnie Vie 5. Mike Tramp Sammy Hagar's again was average with only 3 great songs Just saw a new Taylor Hawkins album is out so that should be good Also SOTO, Station, First Signal, and Black Ouk County to give more time to as well.
    • Much better clip. always happy to see half naked dancing girls, but without mixing them with old dudes which is just creepy. Song is pretty good.
    • Coincidentally, a clip came up on my Facebook feed which was Behind The Vinyl Dee Snider I Wanna Rock During this one, Dee himself says that they are seen as a one hit wonder and that his comeback is "no we're a 2 1/2 hit wonder" - adding in We're Not Gonna Take It and half of the Price The Behind The Vinyl clips are pretty good (Youtube). Dee also does WNGTI but other artists are interesting as well. Run DMC Walk This Way was good, and Babe Styx was interesting. Spandau Ballet, Glass Tiger, etc etc
    • For me, off the past albums I selected.... Are you Ready to Rock - 6 songs Bleed & Scream - 4 songs Armageddonize - 6 songs Monumentum - 6 songs   Haven't got the first 2 albums yet.
