What bands/songs are your guilty pleasure that is outside the realm of AOR/Hard Rock?

One of my is LETTERS TO CLEO from Boston, MA.

Got hooked on the song "Here & Now" from one of those 90's shows like Melrose Place.

Some of my other favorites:

There are many different artists from many different genres that I love. I wouldn't call them guilty pleasures. I know what you mean though.

Rap was new at the time and these guys weren't afraid to embrace the guitar. 

I've mentioned it before, but my first concert was RUN-DMC. 1987.

I know KarpetRydOFunk will be amazed, but these guys were a big part of my childhood.

from this year albums by Miley Cyrus & Lady Gaga are excellent. 

You should consider these statements before you type them as some people actually follow you up on this. I just like good tunes and I don't care what it is so I was willing to give both a go. Your pop recommendation last year was decent - some UK girl fronted band - forget the name, but I think it was pretty cool. 

Honestly, I thought these two were both awful. Miley Cyrus had some okay-ish pop stuff on it, but jeez she's got an unappealing voice. Just didn't enjoy the songs enough either. It was definitely the better of the two, though. 

I didn't even make it through the Gaga one - just a continuous dance track - where was the appeal in it? It's funny, I listen to this and immediately think of that movie with the sadness and country music and stuff. Good film. But the music on her new album is basically the exact kind of sell-out, manufactured garbage she finds herself making in the film before it all comes crashing down. Soul-less trash. 

I actually agree she's probably a decent talent, but I found this album to be something any single girl with a voice could record over a repetitive dance track. 

Anyway, to each their own. Not sure of my guilty pleasures - you guys can probably tell me better than me as I'm pretty cool with my likes. 

I'm ashamed and embarrassed to listen to any christian band, though, so I guess christian rock in general is my guilty pleasure. But it's not pleasurable, so I guess it doesn't fit. It's frustrating more than pleasurable, so I don't think I can answer this question.

sorry you dislike them, but these are my guilty pleasures after all.... not yours ;) 

I like several songs on both but to me Rain on Me and Midnight Sky are 2 of the most perfectly constructed pop songs I've heard in a long time.

I would also add Dua Lipa as well - I like virtually every one of her songs

Chely Wright is another. Country chick. She had 2 straight really good discs.

Dua Lipa is cool. That 'Let's get physical' song was a mainstay on my USB stick for the kids this year.

i don't know if I would consider Letters to Cleo a "guilty pleasure", I guess only because they're outside of AOR/Hard Rock and are part of 90's grunge era. I guess I like some Soundgarden,  The Sundays,Cranberries, Matchbox Twenty.... that would be along the same lines

now this is a guilty pleasure and it rocks in a different way :)

Baltimora - Tarzan Boy

    • An absolute must have album, KILLER!!! stuff...  
    • This whole transgender sport thing is a joke IMO....I mean who really cares who or what is competing in the Olympics these days, most of them are on performance drugs of one kind or another anyway....half the women look like men and some of the men look like women depending on which sport they are competing in....I just don't give a fuck anymore....I watch NHL, MLB and NFL....they can put women or transgender in any of those leagues and I'll have a good laugh....
    • Firstly, thank you for those kind words. I was moved.  Secondly, yeah, the whole transgender sport issue is a disgrace. I honestly can't understand how it's allowed.  Joe Rogan's been calling this shit out from day one.        
    • just feeling very emotional right now, and wanted to let all my HH brothers know how I feel, without being offensive or getting cancelled,  I just wanted to tell you guys that your all Fags and if you were any bigger pillow biters, you'd have to have your wrists permanently set in the limp position, especially you G-Off, I noticed since you met that new guy you dont even come on here anymore, must be getting to much weenie, anyways, your all homos, and queers, and I wouldn't be surprised to find out your all chicks with dicks, especially the wops and nips, but I think your all Crackers so I dont have to bring race into this, well that and im not a dumbocrat, Nolan I dont know if you or G-Off take more weenie, but it would be interesting to compare stats, anyways if you cant tell I had to unload this somewhere since I just got my Twitter account banned for saying that these faggot transgendered people, who are fucking men, should be able to compete against woman, in sports, cause it's pretty obvious nobody who could compete in athletics against their own gender, have to go compete in a lower level, I mean if they ever want to feel victory, isnt that why anyone would want to be a man and compete against a woman? sorry im lost, i cannot even guess the mindset behind that, you can dress like a fag and still compete against dudes, right?
    • Yay! Also one of the best guitarists, you get lots of people that copy Vai, Malmsteen, EVH e.t.c. and do it superbly well but never seen anyone come close to getting Steve Howes style. Although on recent live albums (less said about them the better)  it sounds like he has slowed a lot from his heyday.
