Name 3 Current/newer bands that others on here like/love/rave about, that just NOT your thing(for some reason)
I WILL get crucified for this but here we go
In No order
Work Of Art 
Degreed
Vega
  Aside from a song or 2 from each band, I just can't get into these 3 for some reason!

I think I like all the good proper bands. I think? 

I don't like stuff like;

Cats In Space

Night Flight Orchestra

Lordi

... but that's just because they're not really my thing. All the good, well regarded melodic rock bands, I think I like. I think... 

For example, I'm obviously well aware that Vega, Work Of Art, Degreed, Santa Cruz, Find Me, White Widdow, Steel Panther and Magic Dance are fantastic bands. Steel Panther not as great in recent years, but still highly regarded by me. :)

White Widdow :-) 

Never got Dangerous Toys. 

Toto. Though as I've mellowed I do accept they have a coupe of good tracks. 

I'd add to the Judas Priest. Never got any understanding of why people like them and walked out after three songs when I tried to watch them after Whitesnake opened for them.

lol, just noticed the title of the thread. So yeah, okay, I'll say;

Cats In Space

Night Flight Orchestra

Lordi

I feel like I have a better choice than Lordi because I think the majority of people hate them too, but that's who I'm going with for now.

I'd prefer to look at older bands. Everyone knows that for some reason I can't really get into Defiants or Tokyo Motor Fist, and most of the synthy stuff as well.

But for me

Judas Priest - I like some songs, Living After Midnite, Turbo Lover, and actually some of the Ripper stuff, but overall it was always Maiden easily in the Maiden/Priest battle

AC/DC - Sure the early stuff was great, but after Thunderstruck there really hasn't been anything of any interest.

Metallica - again, like some of their songs. Face To Black, etc but was never a fan of the speedy stuff. Moving a hand up and down the frets was never all that impressive for the sound to me. Impressive in the skill, but taht's different.

Oh, and Dio. Aside from I Could Have Been A Dreamer and maybe a couple of others, meh

I'm sure I could find a lot more than 3 bands but here are the first that come to mind...

Iron Maiden - I liked their first release with Di'anno but could never get into the band after that...

Journey - there are damn few songs by the band that I can stand listening to...mostly because I find Perry's vox too irritating...

U2 - another overrated band that has literally no redeeming songs...

Metalica after seen every Kal and Kim wearing their T Shirts, and bought at chain stores eg K Mart, Cotton On etc

Tool  same as before.

And bands that people who downloads, and not buying physical cds.

Haha. I remember when I was saying how much they sucked and everyone was telling me how awesome they were. 

Of others mentioned;

Inglorious - agreed fully.

The Radio Sun - agree completely. They should be good, but it's too one-dimensional and unappealing.

Nordic Union - yep, definitely.

Who likes Inglorious? Seem to remember they've been pretty well universally panned. 

What was that female vocalist that you could use to keep dogs at bay some liked? Something to do with somebody in Vega?

Issa?

I agree that no one likes Inglorious. Same with Radio Sun too, though. I never met anyone who liked them.

    • Same for me.  I thought the first single was decent but nothing else grabbed me. 
    • New lyric video for 'Save Us From Ourselves'.    
    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New video for 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-
