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

Recommended Posts

 

Meek song, but nice improvised film clip.

Well I'll probably get reamed for a few of these, but I'm only being honest, I don't fit the status quo, (no that's not one of them)

Aerosmith and Kiss(tied) never ever ever got what seemingly everybody on the planet did with these 2 bands, just felt they were mediocre at best, sorry guys, coming in a close 2nd with another tie is The Beatles and Hanoi Rocks, again 2 very average bands that just never did a thing for me,

The Eagles

Creed

Nicklefag

Any Metallica after And Justice

3 Doors Down

Lynyrd Skynard(talented but just never did anything I thought warranted the hype)

And finally I've never gotten what so many people liked about James Taylor or America, if I gotta have talent to the extreme pop music I gotta put my money on the Kings of it, Sir Michael Bolton or Wham!

people including the likes of Iron Maiden (up to 7th Son),  Dio (first 2), Jouney , Boston etc is crazy talk. So many classic songs.

That said now you can crucify me :lol:

Aerosmith

Led Zep

Queensryche - operation mindcrime is the most overrated album of all time

Motley Crue

TNT - about 10 good songs

Judas Priest

Black n Blue

Great White

White Lion

Ghost

Firehouse (apart from All She Wrote)

Rush. (I've tried)

ZZ Top

Status Quo

Kansas

Styx

Yes

scorpions

Ozzy black Sabbath

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. 

Listen to "I'll wait". Great track!

Motorhead for sure. They would have been great without Lemmy.

The Clash. Never understood their popularity. 

The Ramones. 

Anthrax.

I love Slayer, but yeah, you're spot on about Venom.

    • 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)
