|Bands I Dont Understand Why People Love|
After the "Bands I dont Like" list was a big hit for everybody, I figured why not make another one. That was really fun so lets try this again. Some of those replies were downright hysterical. Now with these bands I dont dislike them really, but I cant understand why they are soooo popular and loved.
|1|| ||Avenged Sevenfold|
They had some decent songs here and there, but they damn sure shouldnt be huge like they are. Bat Country was an attempt at Mainstream success and it worked well. After the City of Evil, the self-titled lp came out and Ive never seen such a split opinion over it. For the record, the lead singer needs to lose the shades and bandana. Whether he knows it or not, it makes him wayyy less metal. Uh why e ie ieee
Now heres a band I forgot to put in the bands I dont like list. These guys are just downright mediocre. David is a bald dweeb who treats his audience like hes speaking to a Nazi rally (and hes Jewish, no offense my Jewish friends). But like how he commands the stage and everything like that is soooo cheesey. Not to mention props to the Dillenger for calling them out on their rock star mannerisms. Everyone else can bask in this hard wuss-rock, but not me. I like my cheesey music with a dose of irony.
No way am I taking anything away from this band in the least, but I WILL say these guys are not commercial except for the self-titled. I find it unfair that everyone latched onto them after poor Bradley passed. As Mike Patton said in "Star A.D.": And when you die you become something worste than dead, you become a legend". I dont think Bradley would have enjoyed his newfound success so much. And FYI, 40oz. is a bad-ass record.
|4|| ||Papa Roach|
I respect these guys and enjoy a couple of their tunes, but I find Coby Dick or Jacoby or whatever the hell his name is this week to be fake. You ever watch that show Scarred with him hosting? It will just cut to montages of him posing for the camera in his half-gay seriousness. Speare me, please. And now all of a sudden hes all tatted up and his hero is Nikki Sixx? However he gets a little form of props since he always says how much he loves my beloved FNM.
|5|| ||Linkin Park|
Whats this world coming to? How on Earth are these guys huge when all they did was make a semi-decent debut record that ended up selling 47 million trillion albums. These guys have no integrity whatsoever, even if some of the songs are catchy. Their style is so very 2001 still and thats a hazardous chip on their shoulder. But the EP they did with the Hamster made me laugh so its cool enough I suppose.
|6|| ||No Doubt|
I really respect this band a whole lot, and I find Gwen Stefani not only super attractive but she can write a tune too (that one track she did with Akon was such a great song). However, that doesnt mean all of their albums should be praised when each one of them have fallen under the iceburg in terms of quality found on Tragic Kingdom. This band is a good example of the blind leading the blind.
|7|| ||Marilyn Manson|
You would have a hard time convincing me this dude has talent for writing a good song. No wonder why he relies on the shock value so much since his music falls oh so short. However he was and is wrongfully accused of all of the bad press hes gotten and I do feel a bit bad for him, but I still think he musically sucks. Saw him live as well, and walked out. At least I saw Slayer right before him so I walked away happy. For this guy its material over substance. You want good shock-rockage with bad-ass guitar and wonderful singing? Check out a little dude from Minneapolis who has a knack for dating the hottest women and wears heels since hes so short. He also changed his name to a symbol that looks a little something like this: O(+>
|8|| ||Def Leppard |
This ones for DaveyBoy. Some of their songs are super-catchy but I see right through it. I find these aging, leather-pants-wearing-like-its-still-1984 douchcocks to be absolutely annoying. And its a shame, I know these dudes have talent on their instruments, but they just dont let loose in favor of top 40. No thanks, life is too short to wallow in bad music.
Of course I respect this dude, but now hes just getting stale. his attempts at pleasing the rock world by producing the Chris Cornell record fell soooo flat, and now hes recouping. Pretty much all of his beats are the same annoying India-tinged crap that I chuckle over when the masses cum when they hear them. Ill take DJ Premier and a Newcastle and sit in the corner thank you.
You wanna know why I dont understand why people love this band? Because Gavin Rossdale is a tool, thats why. Plain and simple. Hes a terrible lyricist, a sub-par guitar player and hes also living off of Gwen's paychecks. Im not hating really, I just think hes a waste of sperm.
|Avenged Sevenfold is cool because Waking the Fallen and City of Evil were actually good albums. The self-titled sucked, we all know, but they have had good albums.|
|Yeah, thanks. |
|Daveyboy got owned for liking Def Leppard. For the record they aren't that bad.|
|Ohand Linkin Parks debut wasn't 'semi-decent' it was pretty fucking awesome.|
|You think so? Some songs were really good like Papercut but what Im saying is is that they fell very short with the follow-up. |
|Hybrid Theory is awesome. I really couldn't care less for Linkin Park now, but that's a fantastic album.|
|Yeah, dont think an awful lot of their new album, but Hybrid Theory was excellent, don't mind some Meteora now and then either.|
|why is it there are so many overrated bands lists recently?|
or have they always been there and I just didn't notice?
AND HYBRID THEORY IS THE BEST FUCKING ALBUM IN THE WHOLE WORLD EVA!!! HATERZ!
|You seem to be saying "of course I respect these guys, but......" on nearly every entry of this list, like your scared you'll be flamed.|
If you hate something, just say "I hate it".
List was sort of arrogant
|I them don't why understand you like don't|
|Welcome to Sputnikmusic. This is where no one really likes any of the bands listed here. |
|That's not true, I really dig Disturbed|
|Add Wintersun. Srsly.|
And what Poet said. You'll fit right in, provided you don't do a horrid review for an album that 98% of the community likes.
|i dont like any of these bands|
|Asiatic, I DO respect these bands. But its like I said, I just dont understand all the hoopola and whatnot and everyone jumping the bandwagon. How was the list arrogant? Its only for shits and giggles, not to be mean. For entertainment. |
|Hybrid Theory is mediocre at best. It all is just kinda boring and reppetitive and not to mention Chester's voice is just plain ANNOYING!|
|"(that one track she did with Akon was such a great song). "|
In the words of yoda 'this is why you fail!'
plus, 80's c0ck rock and leather pants ftw!
|dude akon is tight, i don't care what people say. i love the track he does with young jeezy.|
i agree with all but the last pretty much. timbaland is okay, but i'm not all that into him.
|Sorry to do this, but you're an absolute retard for recommending Prince as if he's some kind of indie musician that only you know about.|
|Glad to see A7X and Disturbed on this list. Doesn't surprise me either. |
Avenged Sevenfold is all around a horrible band, imo..and overhyped.
Disturbed has a few good songs..they're the type of band that writes 2 or 3 good songs per album, so by the time they have 4 albums out, they have enough songs for a greatest hits, and that would be their only "good" album.
Sublime doesn't deserve the list, imo. You said yourself, 40 oz is badass, and that's the reason they should be loved (Robbin' The Hood as well). The self titled is the most mainstream, yes, and you're right, Brad probably wouldn't have liked the success..but it's still a great album. It has a better "flow" than 40 oz and Robbin The Hood, imo. By the way...BURRITOS FOR THE WIN!!
Papa Roach is atrocious. However, Infest and Lovehatetragedy would've been good albums had Jacoby not been rapping.
Linkin Park is kind of boring and cheesy, but despite the extreme ease of their songs, their first 2 albums are really good, and in some aspects (not too many though :P) they do have somewhat of their own sound.. ish... kinda... maybe...I do think Chester is a decent vocalist though.
No Doubt is always a fun listen, but they haven't managed to deliver anything that's up to par with Tragic Kingdom.
Marilyn Manson as a person is a very smart guy, and seems very cool, despite the image. His music never clicked with me though.. I do like a few songs, however. The Beautiful People, anyone? :P
Def Leppard.. no comment. Cheesy and lame...period.
Timbaland.. no comment really. He's alright, but 98% of newer rap is complete bullshit regardless. People actually listen to shit like Lil Wayne and think THAT'S good rapping, let alone music.....I won't mention 50 Cent (oops) because he's pretty much 'over' now.. no more hype for Fitty Cent.
Bush had/has a few good songs. I didn't mind their first album, but I do agree, he's a bad musician all around, and he's technically golddigging off his wife, because his money certainly isn't coming from the "success" (?) that Bush had.
I apologize for the long comment, btw, but I felt like voicing my opinions on each band you put on here.
|Right, firstly, Gavin doesnt really sponge off his wife, he has plenty of his own money + fame: Sixteen Stone 6x Platinum, Razorblade Suitcase 3x Platinum, The Science of Things 1x Platinum (he has also been in films etc). Secondly, Gavin's lyrics are genius, they're just not linear lyrics that a 5 year old could understand. |
And about Marilyn Manson, he has plenty of talent, hence he has fans, I don't listen to his music because of any 'shock value', its fucking music(just sound), I dont see him when I listen to it so how he looks has no effect on my appreciation of his music.
Linkin Park are also pioneers and very talented as seen by sales tbh.
|yes sales has a whole lot to do with talent lol. linkin park and marilyn manson suck and you're a tool for listening to them in this day and age.|
|idk I think that disturbed is good, and as for Papa roach, then i'm really looking forward to their new album. The rest- I don't give a shit although as like many before me have said, Hybrid Theory is good.|
