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

Y'know those bands. The ones that are big-time popular. Multitudes of fans love them. You don't actually dis-like them at all. In fact, you may even respect and appreciate them. You even like a couple of their songs maybe. It's just that you can't seem to get all fired-up excitited about them like the rest of the world seems to. It can't be explained. Have you all got a little list of those bands? I do:

U2
Rush
Yes
Kiss

And if (Heaven forbid), you say a tiny negative thing about them in a post you feel the need to apologize to all their fans

I hear ya. Her voice is something that takes some time to get used to. I suppose sort of like Geddy Lee, though I like both voices.

Her "Supposed Former..." album is a favorite of mine.

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

Bob Dylan

Rolling Stones ( I actually could come up with a nice list of songs that I like, but they're not even on my radar of the great rock bands).

CCR (not offensive or anything...just way overrated)

Metallica (sorry...way too many other great hard rock bands to bother with these guys)

AC/DC (same as Metallica)

The Band


not a complete list by any stretch, but that's enough for now.

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

U2 (I always go off people/artists/bands when they start to take themselves too seriously)
Rolling Stones (I've always considered the Stones to be the most over rated band in the history of rock n' roll)
Coldplay (boring middle class pap)
Led Zeppelin (never disliked Zeppelin I just never got into them the way all my friends did?)
