How about AC/DC with Bon Scott singing?B|

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1iR2Wi3u5o

We just don't have enough bag pipes in modern rock.[:/]



Yes, better with Bon, perhaps tolerable. But Brian ruined any chance of getting into their older stuff.



Love ACDC for their hard driving beat and guitar play. Bon Scott had a good high pitched voice that sounded smooth. Brian Johnson screeched. Well for the first 20 years or so. His voice got deeper as he got older and I admit I liked that better, like the concert they did at River Plate stadium in South America in 2009.

Unfortunately, he can't sing anymore due to throat cancer. [:/] Nobody can sing forever, but damn... 32 years is long enough for anybody, even Brian.

Now if there is a band that I fucking hated or couldn't stand, it was Culture Club. B|

When that song came on the radio, a co-worker and myself got into an argument about the gender of the singer. One of us thought it was a dude, while the other thought it was a chick. Then one evening I saw them perform it on TV. So next morning I saw my co-worker and told him:

"OK, I saw them on TV last night...and I still don't know if the singer is male or female."

:D

:D:D:D First time I saw that band, I thought the lead singer was a bad looking female. :D

Good catch, I missed that. :D

There's another singer whose name I forget, similar to the Culture Club's frontman.... was a one hit wonder with a music video... Big long hair, make-up, catchy tune, the works. I couldn't stand him either. B|

A popular band that I hate? Guns and Roses. Just do. Can't stand Axl. I think he's a jerk.



Have you seen him recently?:D

A popular band that I generally can't stand is Rush. I just really don't like them.

I also HATE Nirvana and Bruce Springsteen. Immediate channel switch if they come on the sirius xm...

Like 'em all, esp. since Nirvana was a local band. Dave Grohl still does a great job with the Foo Fighters. Chatted with Krist Noveselic the other day as he flew his Cessna thru my sector.

But to each their own. . . :)

minus Nirvana, some of my favorites. I like Nirvana alright.

For popular bands I hate: Journey, the Chile Peppers, and the Beatles.

A lot of people I know love all three, but Journey seems pretty repetitive to me, and musically not very interesting. The other two idk, just something about their sound, particularly the singers that I don't like.

Again to each his own though :). Life's a lot better with music you like.
well...I was going skydiving anyway. let's go.

Eh, being a singer makes it difficult for me to enjoy people who can't sing. And by "can't sing" i mean "sound like cats being strangled to death". (Cobain and Springsteen, i'm looking at you. Dylan goes there too, though his poetry makes up for it somewhat)

I heard that hearing Dylan's voice convinced Jimi Hendrix to strike out on his own, another guy that couldn't sing.:D

And don't be saying anything bad about Jimi. . .. >:(

I have never, ever understood the Radiohead hype. I'm frankly surprised they didn't end up on this list: Rolling Stone Reader's Poll: Ten Worst Bands of the 90s. :D



The comments in that list are hilarious, e.g. "Dave Matthews Not That Into Himself Anymore" .:D

Oh, and I don't get Radiohead either.

***>A popular band that I generally can't stand is Rush.

Seems like a man/woman thing; most women seem to dislike them.



I like Rush. Quite a bit, actually. :)
Their drummer is really good, but as far as their music, I have no interest.

Just gimme AC/DC or the old Van Halen, even The Clash, and I'm good. ;)
