        They were really easy to hate back in the day. They’ve withstood the test of time though.

      John Taylor is so underrated as a bassist. He was amazing in that band.

      Been listening to Rio by DD as inspiration for a writing piece, and it’s a pretty good song imo

      Come Undone is one of the coolest songs I’ve ever heard. I’ve never been able to figure out if it’s about living in the closet though. The lyrics could be interpreted as such, and the video definitely reinforces that concept.

    I only found out a few years ago that Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm by Crash Test Dummies was commonly regarded as one of the worst songs of the 90s, but it reminds me of middle school and summers at the pool. Same with Sex And Candy by Marcy Playground.

      The other day I heard sex and candy for the first time in ages. I got immediate nostalgia. The song has a GREAT hook and I totally see why middle school me liked it. Sex. Candy. Cool vibe.

      But hearing it now, i quickly realized the lyrics aren’t mysterious/poetic. They are meaningless and had nothing to say except repeating the chorus over and over and over because the words sound good together.

      I don’t think there’s that many people who dislike Nickelback. It just became trendy to dislike them, so people jumped on the bandwagon, regardless of whether they actually cared either way.

      I tried because so many of my friends dig them. I just can’t get past the songs that seem like they’re written with a rhyming dictionary and they’re full of teeny bopper cliches. I love the guitar tone and some of the riffs but I just can’t get past those dumbass lyrics.

    I’ll say it, I like Imagine Dragons. They have some great songs, they just also have some radio rock drivel (oh god Thunder is bad). Also, I saw them live back in 2013 and it’s one of the best concerts I’ve been to.

      In 2022, they were my then-12-year-old child’s favorite band, so I took the kiddo to see the band in Milwaukee. Holy shit, they put on a FANTASTIC concert.

      My wife discovered them about idk… 6 years ago? She was crazy about their music. She listened to it all the time, and put the music videos on our home theater. Then out of nowhere she suddenly decided that she hates them. She still hates them to this day. I think it might be because their music is so repetitive that it sounds catchy at first and then gets really annoying. Whatever the reason, they cultivated a super fan and then lost her all within a couple of months.

      Unfortunately they became a bit annoying after a bit but looking back, they’ve put out some fantastic tracks that are hard not to groove to

      Kinda like Nickelback. How can you not enjoy Rockstar

    You could play me 10 random songs from my playlist and I could maybe name the artist of one of them. I’m so hipster even I don’t know the bands I’m listening to.

      That’s the problem with autogenerated playlists. I really like it, but can’t remember the names of the bands - especially since half of them are Cyrillic.

        I don’t know, that’s what I like about my playlist. No loyalties. If I like it, it’s in. From rap to classical I got it! Maybe even a few country songs, but those are the very rare for me.

    Zappa.

    Those who are into his music are really into it, and those who aren’t generally really dislike it.

      My Highschool Girlfriend was a huge Matchbox 20 fan, so I took her to one of their concerts. I gotta say, I was impressed. They do a great show.

      Coldplay is among my favorite bands, absolutely agree there

      A lot of people criticize the direction they’ve taken recently, and while I don’t keep up with their newest releases, Viva la Vida is still one of my favorite songs. And other tracks like Paradise, Sky Full of Stars, etc. will always be fun for me to listen to as well

      Nickelback is good, especially the early music. Imagine Dragons is similar in that they both are kinda hated because their music is really mainstream and accessible, which is in my opinion a pretty weird reason to hate the bands.

        I can understand hating something because it’s overplayed and you’ve heard it so much that it just makes your skin crawl.

        I have that with Queen’s Radio Ga Ga. When I was working on a cruise ship at 19, I boarded while it was still being constructed and out of the 2 weeks it was in drydock before we set sail, 1 of them was spent testing the PA system by playing that song, on loop, 24/7 for a week straight with no breaks. It was psychological torture. I liked the song at first; never heard it until that. But now, I want to punch a thousand babies if I hear it.
