Trying out bands we don't like, part 4

Same dealio, different 20-o. Lots of indie in this episode and some buttrock. Starting off with MY BOY DALTON'S favorite band.
1Black Veil Brides
Black Veil Brides

DK: 2.5, Felt pretty generic, but it wasn't absolutely terrible.
Me: 2.5, Not nearly as bad as the other album by them I've heard. Still not good, though.
2Metro Station
Metro Station

DK: 1.5, I guess Trace Cyrus found a casio keyboard at a yard sale.
Me: 1.5, There's still 2 songs left but I feel solid in calling this awful
3Tokio Hotel
Dream Machine

DK: 2.5, Eh. The ambience was nice, but the vocals were subpar. I liked the dog barking.
Me: 2.5, At points it was great chill background music, but the vocals sucked
4The All-American Rejects
Move Along

DK: 2.5, Some songs were kind of catchy, but I am definitely not the target demo.
5Billy Ray Cyrus
The Other Side

DK: 2, Generic radio country, capped off with a terrible rendition of 'Amazing Grace'.
Me: 2, Wasn't the worst until the Amazing Grace cover at the end
6The Wallflowers

DK: 3.5, Good, chill 90's indie rock before the genre crawled up it's own ass.
Me: 3.5, Really enjoyed it. Good mellow listening, no real lowpoints
7Spin Doctors
Pocket Full of Kryptonite

DK: 2.5, Made me think of Barenaked Ladies with a slight edge and I didn't hate them.
Me: 2.5, Very meh. Wasn't terrible but sorta just blended in with the background
8Ace of Base
Happy Nation

DK: 2, Vapid music that sucked then and sucks now.
Me: 2, Slow club music with meh vocals. No standout tracks
9Papa Roach

DK: 2, Music for ICP fans that want to venture out of their comfort zone.
Me: 2, Borderline really bad nu-metal buttrock that doesn't quite cross over to terrible
10Limp Bizkit
Significant Other

DK: 2, Started out stronger than 'Papa Roach', but went on way too long.
Me: 1.5, Didn't think it would be that bad after the first half, but it was an hour of shiiiiiiit
11Kid Rock
Devil Without a Cause

DK: 2, The best part of this album was making up communist rap lyrics instead. (we were goofin during this album)
Me: 2, I heard this a lot in my step dad's jeep growing up, maybe it's nostaglia or fond memories of the molestation
12Baha Men
Who Let the Dogs Out

DK: 1.5, Christ that sucked. Conjured images of Burger King and shitty movies.
Me: 1.5, The title track is a jam but literally the second it ended the album went to shit. Warm, tropical shit laying on a dirty beach somewhere
13The Chainsmokers

DK: 2, Generic electronic pop, but I've heard way worse than this be more regarded.
Me: 2, I guess I don't get to be on the hyper-hate train
14American Authors
What We Live For

DK: 1.5, This shit sucks. Radio whores on par with Train. Fuck this faux folk-indie trash.
Me: 1.5, Drug on forever, no good points. Bad!
15Imagine Dragons
Night Visions

DK: 2, Engineered for maximum radio airplay and cross appeal. Better than AA, but not much.
Me: 2, Fairly inoffensive but not good
Aim and Ignite

DK: 3.5, Better than expected. See, AA and ID, THIS is how you write feel good songs: Have a soul.
Me: 3.5, I really thought I'd hate this, but it is pretty great.
Never Trust A Happy Song

DK: 2.5, Didn't grab me, but I didn't hate it either.
Me: 3, Acceptable upbeat indie pop I hear pumping from my gf's speakers and my record player like daily
Oracular Spectacular

DK: 2.5, Kind of blended into the background, still, it wasn't terrible.
Me: 3, Catchy at points, never irritating
19Foster the People

DK: 2, I dislike 'Pumped Up Kicks', but I was curious to hear the rest. The rest sucked.
Me: 2, Super same-y aetherial echo-crap
20Alien Ant Farm

DK: 3, Decent album. Not much else to say.
Me: 3, Better than I thought an album by what I imagined to be a 1-hit wonder would be
