Read what I said at the first post again.
...that's a joke, son...I got the point; just being sarcastic...given the corporations that are trying to tell us what we're 'supposed to like' by force-feeding us the same stuff on the radio day in and day out...

Re: Bands you're supposed to like, but.......

After reading this thread I've realized that I'm way to easy to please. I actually like most of the bands listed here. The only one I really find myself agreeing with is Metallica and Nirvana.

Quite a list! Maybe you could save space by listing bands you do like.

Re: Bands you're supposed to like, but.......

Hmm hating on beatles, stones & zeppelin surprising. Mostly I like 1 or two songs from every band including this list:



- Dave matthews band (wtf?)
- John Legend (so called new soul but it's been done way better)
- Half of those bubblegum house acts like aqua
- Boy Bands
- Most of the Emo Scene
- Grind Core and other extreme metal music
- Creed
- Nickelback
- Eagles
- Pink Floyd
- Black eyed peas

and last but not least the great overrated Journey

very true, roser...

We need to hear a little bit more of what you do like, phantasm777...
besides listening to your radio station to find out.

How can anyone not like Kiss, Aerosmith and Lynyrd Skynyrd?...

how un-rock and roll???

Re: Bands you're supposed to like, but.......

Ok, this reads like a Guide to flipflop's Record Collection

I never got into Radiohead or Coldplay or any of that s***e, none of that Britpop c**p but hey... in my book you're not supposed to like that so not really a problem. I agree with the one above who dubbed Coldplay middle-class pap, was it?

Anyway... this is a depressing thread for me...

Loooooootta people not into the Stones at all

Re: Bands you're supposed to like, but.......

see what i mean. "bands you're suppose to like" i guess cause they do.

ones i do like would be too long to list. already mentioned in past threads, i liked rock, classic rock, hard rock, old psyche, old garage, 60's 70's music which include some motown, r&b, soul, tsop, progressive, most forms of metal, some pop but not modern pop.

Re: Bands you're supposed to like, but.......

well, you forget, for a radio station to try and exist you have to choose between what you like and the audience does without losing your edge, meaning it should be YOUR flavour, like being in a band, best to play what you like and are good at and hit the crowd that way.

i have some songs on there i only like a little, or can deal with after someone requested it. but yeah it would be mostly songs i like and some mellow, soft, slow, even love-dovey ones you would prob never think i liked in the least.

i have over 1500 songs up there but confined to 66 to 76. so anything i like after that obviously wont be up there.

i been wanting to make another station which i would have basically 80's metal, like first few lps from metallica, overkill, slayer, metal church, anthrax, helloween, king diamond, mercyful fate, and a lot more, no hair bands of course! :P all the stuff i liked but didnt not get on radio from like 81 to 91,

BUT it's expensive running 2 stations so it's just a thought for now. but i have a whole shitload i could put up for a that kind of station.

ever since sabbath influence in 72, i've always had this thirst for heavy and powerful music (not exclusively), i really don't care what they're singing about as much as what the musicians are doing (perhaps another reason i dont care for rap, music is the priority and lyrics are like 1/10th of the music in total and i write lyrics! it's all about the music!),

and being a musician for along time playing bass, guitar and drums in bands, you can see where i can understand what many are doing and if i can do it, being so easy, it better be really catchy or i dont like how little work was put into it.

so a lot of my critique, unfortunately i suppose, comes from a musicians point of view, not that all musicians see it my way, but it is hard to just judge a song or cd soley as a fan, plus when youre old as i am you already know what you like, so like i don't like blues, jazz, rap, country, but luckily rock has many many genre's sub-genre's ( oh and i do like some blues influenced, country influenced, jazz influenced rock).

so im a rocker, metaler basically, and if that sounds limited, its not, when you consider the genre's within rock and within metal. narrow? perhaps, but like food, some you like and dont, some is ok, some great, some bleeech!!! i love most dishes having tomatoes involved, yet do not like others ithe certain other veggies in it)yet others like it.

though i cannot name you specifics, cause i dont have any of it, i do like some baroque, gothic, renaissance, victorian era type music, obviously not all. i really like the use of a harpsichord and clavichord, really atmospheric, yet i am not a fan of a straight piano. but love a synthesizer, mellotron and organ (preferably hammond b3 or m3 i guess)

it's all about what floats your boat not how what you like , is liked by others. thats why i wont get personal on someone even if i hate a band they like, i try not to even rip the band other than to say, i dont like them, but depends on what they have already said, and sometimes i will be more descriptive and maybe say they blow, i think that's about as bad as i get.

but being i know what i like and that seemingly many do not like what i like, i try and think about that when asked what i think about a band i don't like, cause i know i get shit on about my tastes, and i really do not wanna do that to anyone else.

sorry so long

Re: Bands you're supposed to like, but.......

well i guess that could be read 2 ways (i get in trouble witrh that too, meaning one thing yet how i write it could mean more than one thing)

i meant ... sorry what i wrote was so long.

my stations has about 460 presets, meaning 460 people set it as one of their favs and have easy reference to dialing it up quickly. not that all 460 are listening, no i won't let that mislead you, but my station has been on an upswing with some changes i made, and i am avaeraging over 1100 listening hours per month, which for live365 and being a year old station is not bad at all, but of course i would like more.

i have some 1500 songs up and like near 700 are songs i never heard before and i dug out on compilations, of lost bands,, mostly from late 60's and i listened to them and they were from good, pretty good, all the way to GREAT! and i felt exposing these lost gems would be part of what the station is about cause some of these compilations are damn expensive and out of print.

as soon as i can get more prog. 70's music im adding it, but within 1970 - 76.
