Can't stand 'em
« on: December 15, 2020, 10:25:23 PM »
Who are the artists you fucking hate? Even better if it's for some irrational reason. Me?

1. Queen. Nothing about them I like. Freddie's fucking vest and his "Day-oh" shit. May and his homemade knitting needle guitar (Brian May should play for three hour), Roger Taylor and his supercilious look, staring down at us meek working class oiks. And the other one.
2. Billy Joel. I only know three of his songs and they are all cunts: Just The Way You Are; Uptown Twatting Girl and the ultimate spam email, We Didn't Start The Fire. Die Billy Joel.
3. Sting. Obviously.

Queen
Abba
Oasis
Elton John

There's loads of outright pop music that I can't stand, but that was disposable fluff forgotten about a few years after it's put out. Acts like the above still get critically lauded decades on, and I don't understand it at all. Four acts, every note they made is absolute shite to my ears. I'd probably count Oasis worst of the lot, because they were - more than anything - so absolutely boring.

I'm sure I'd hate someone like Ed Sheeran and Adele just as much, but thankfully most of the last 15 years I've been able to avoid listening to music I'm not interested in.

 I'm beginning to can't stand  Madonna compounded by something a chauffer driver mate told me recently about her being a ghastly c**t  and Chart Music Podcast's recent coat downs confirming my longstanding and unpopular opinion of the Material Girl. I'm sure she means a great deal to people and has certainly achieved a lot in the 'shit business' but 'Madge' comes across to me as a cold, calculating, gimlet-eyed figure. In a bathtub. Crying.

I did like Vogue though.

Ed Sheeran, yeah. I kind of hate the fact that I hate him, because he's one of the most obvious pop stars for someone like me to hate, and it's somewhat ridiculous for a man in his mid 30s to hate music that's not even aimed at him, but I do hate him. Not just his music, him as a person as well. Somehow he manages to commmunicate an utter, concentrated twattiness through everything he does. I find him incredibly calculated and oily. And his music is so baaaadd, man, while being technically ok. Urgh.

Guns and Roses, and Bon Jovi. I think it's the singing? Or perhaps the ubiquity.

As a metalhead there is loads of metal I discount for arbitrary reasons.

AC/DC

Do people actually LIKE the new album or is it charity because one of them died? They always came off as a band that sharts out a new album every so often just to tour. Every singer they've had was/is awful, too.

Liam Gallagher as a solo act.

I used to love Oasis. Liam solo is a fucking Oasis tribute band and little else.


In a similar vein, Richard Ashcroft.


I listened to the Verve's Haigh Hall gig the other day. His vocals are the least-interesting part of The Verve. I could listen to Nick McCabe, Simon Jones and Pete Salisbury jamming for hours. I can't stand Ashcroft's acoustic balladry for even one song. I really want McCabe and Jones to do a new Black Submarine album one day.

Radiohead
Kate Bush


Both because of the vocals, and Bush also for her ballet moves and kraeeee-zee eyes.

Tullycraft

They literally have a song called 'Twee' and the singer sounds like a smug Sesame Street character.

Art Brut

Dude with the worst accent i've ever heard talking. Musically grand, but that accent puts my teeth on edge.

Pavement

The sort of band that you could listen to one of their songs a 100 times in a row and still remember nothing about it. Listless.

Glad to see the common hatred of Queen here. Hat tip to haters of Elton John too and for James to be on a list is just delightful.

Red Hot Chili Peppers. Literally everything about them annoys me. I genuinely think they're the worst band in the history of music. Any music. Worldwide.

I may not like all of the other acts mentioned in this thread but with every last one I can see why people may like them. Even Dylan, who I think is almost totally talentless. I can't see why anyone would like RHCP. It totally mystifies me.

More about this, please!

Someone I knew in the music business (nobody famous. Sorry) once told me about Madonna having a tantrum at an airport. And by tantrum I mean the full throwing herself to the ground, kicking her legs in the air, shouting, screaming and crying bit. The sort of thing the average six-year-old would be ashamed of.

So yes, I can imagine that there are other similar tales going round.

And Vogue is an awful single. A song about a dance craze that never existed. I was a nightclub regular in those days and never once saw anyone 'vogueing.'

I think the thing about Ed Sheeran is his fucking wetness and sentimentality.  In his music anyway.  The complete lack of any inventiveness in his lyrics adds to this, even from his first single - fuckin...crumbling like *pastries* PASTRIES FLAKE, THEY DON'T CRUMBLE ye gods.

It was probably a thing five years before the single came out. She always jumps on the bandwagon years too late. Which is a bit sad really when you think of her early days.

I don't hate Queen, but I only sort of like 'One Vision' and their Christmas song, and even then only when they happen to come on. Don't fancy all that big ballad power rock.

As for actual can't-stand-ems, Michael Bublé, Coldplay, and Bon Jovi. Usually if I don't particularly like a song, I'm unmoved and can tune it out for the three or four minutes of its duration. But with these lads it's different. It feels as though I'm allergic to them.

Phil Collins - though I accept he's done some good stuff. I think it's more the man himself. I just can't get past it

Sting - again, some quality singles. But again, the man. The shitting man

Chris Rea - for me he's the soundtrack to never-ending car sickness. Just grating and bland in every way. He's ruined shopping at Iceland for me too. And Christmas.

The Kooks - so amazingly woeful. Pure half arsed, turgid, indie landfill. The singer is so punchable. I don't think I'd be able to stop

Lady Gaga - I quite like the obvious early singles, but she seems so shallow, empty and calculating. It's like a faded photocopy of Madonna, but with none of the tunes. Her stupid face in that weird Christmas advert too. Not for me

Taylor Swift - I just don't get it. She also seems really fucking annoying and completely in love with herself

Any American nu-metal shite that was everywhere in the early 00's. Fred fucking Durst.

Eminem, when he started doing that weird accent or going on about his mum. Or when he puts out something completely without merit, like Ass Like That

The Cranberries. Like someone letting off squeeking bum blasts in your ear. The lyrics are amazingly bad, too

Any of these modern rappers you get these days with no tunes, loads of autotune, and tattoos all over their face. They seem to die every week, too. It's like Jared Leto's Joker discovered Computer Music magazine during lockdown
