What band did you never "get" that everybody else likes?

Recommended Posts

For me, Extreme.

I never got the appeal of them at all. Just really annoying stuff IMO.

Dokken and Motley Crue

A handful of decent tunes but nothing that blew me away.

Thought about Motley Crue aswell. I listened through the feelgood album but I don't get this party vibe, that I thought they're known for. It felt pretty moody and dark to me. Maybe I just didn't understand the album? I don't know...

 

I never really understood why people like Led Zeppelin, I haven't heard a single LZ song that caught me.

Don't be jealous. It's not an attractive quality.

it was bad enough when the thread started by disparaging Extreme, but then people spoke ill of the Crue and Dokken, and now it's gotten borderline sacrilege with the inclusion of Journey, Boston, and Dio :tsk:

:lol:

I mentioned in another thread how we over here were pretty sheltered from all things Boston, Styx, Journey, etc except for the few hits they had.

Dio, I mean I really like I Could Have Been A Dreamer.
Just did a top 10 dio songs search to see if there were any others I liked and couldn't imagine the sound of any of them, including Holy Diver, which I believe people generally froth.

Pretty comprehensive list and none I'd disagree with. You forgot the most important of them all, though, which is of course Van Halen.

Most of grunge periods, many 70s bandl and also many modern bands post 2000

I can live with one Greatest Hits album of bands like AC/DC, Aerosmith, Deep Purple, Journey, Styx, Van Halen, Boston

I love DIO. Back in my pre-school days the Roger Glover song "Love is all" animated film clip from "The Butterfly Ball" was on early morning TV literally every morning. One of my earliest ever music memories. I think his voice imprinted on my brain.

Yeah, I will admit that I struggled with pre 1984 VH.
I mean we all love/loved Jump, Panama, Hot For Teacher, I'll Wait yeah?

Van Hagar on the other hand was amazing.

Who likes 'Hot for teacher?' If someone asked me to epitomise an 80's hard rock filler song (that to VH's credit, for better or worse, a lot of bands copied) it would be 'Hot for teacher.' Absolute garbage. 

No idea what 'I'll wait' is meaning it was either so bad I forgot it or... well, that's about the only scenario.

    • These guys actually released a nice EP called 'The Walls Between You & I' last year which was a good jam with some good tunes. But they've bettered themselves with an even more impressive new EP release this year. It's called 'Fake Smiles' and has these songs; 1    .    Life for Me 2    .    Without Her 3    .    Nvrb 4    .    Out of Touch 5    .    Freefall   They also made a pretty unflattering video for one of my favourite tunes on the EP;   Love this one too;   Which kinda has similarities to this massive earworm from their 2019 EP;  
    • Despite my above commentary I think was the closest they got to getting it right;  
    • Good new sound and a solid album, but overall it's probably going to be mostly another pass for me... as per recent efforts. The songs just don't have any longevity for me. I do love one song on it which is this;  
    • Pretty frustrating album. I actually feel like, song-wise, it's a pretty good album. But I am so turned off by the poor demo sound quality I can't really give it a proper go. Irritating, as I think there's an okay product here, but it sounds like absolute shit. 
    • Yep, ridiculously average album. 'Another Life Another Time' is an okay tune, but otherwise this ranges from terrible to bad. Very, very forgettable album. 
    • Pretty solid album with a pretty good sound, but none of the songs really do too much for me so it was sadly a pass for me.
    • Really, really average album. 'Still Close to My Heart' is a pretty decent stab at a commercial balladic number. But the rest is extremely forgettable. 'Steal your heart' was okay too... 
    • Pretty weak album, but I liked the opener, which is 'So bad.' Good song. Elsewhere I like 'Never say never' and 'My hometown' and there is potential with these guys. But overall, it leaves a lot to be desired.  
    • Only one listen in to this so it's early days, and I feel like this will grow wonderfully too. But I heard this one today and it's possibly the most interested in a modern rock release I've been for a few years. The first song hooked me immediately and I found myself really digging what these dudes were doing. Some cool lyrics and an emotive vocal delivery throughout. Don't know if others will dig it, but I loved this right off the bat.   01. Bright 02. Concealed 03. Twentyfourseven 04. Awakening 05. Gravity 06. Transition 07. Amnesia 08. Mindset 09. Oblivion 10. Worst Of Me The single;   The song that hooked me;  
    • Some good old synth-pop. Howard Jones - One To One (2 CD Expanded Edition) Alphaville - Forever Young (2 CD Deluxe Edition)
