I always thought Neil Young and Bob Dylan were overrated. Wonderful writers, but their voices were intolerably bad. Guns n Roses was a good suggestion. Really the ENTIRE Seattle grunge scene was just….awful. I think there was ONE of them I kind of liked.

With a couple key exceptions, I never liked U2. Not necessarily for the music, I just found Bono to be a pretentious twat.

^ I gave you a nod but I don’t like that last word…

@Dig_Dug – Sorry, I watch alot of British and Australian TV, and the word isn’t considered as vile there as it is in the US, and I guess I’m picking up the lingo a bit. I still don’t use the 4-letter C word, but in Australia it seems to be polite discourse. :)

Dig_Dug's avatar

@Entropy Okay, mate! Please never use that C word. G-day!

Never cared much for 38special, or U2.

U2. I still haven’t found what I’m looking for when it comes to them.

As a musician I can honestly say that I respect all musicians art. If I don’t like it, I don’t listen to it.
To Quote Eddie Van Halen:
“Music is not the Olympics. It’s not a sport, it’s a form of expression.”
“There is no such thing as bad music,” “There may be music that you personally don’t like, but if you don’t like it, don’t listen to it and shut the fuck up! Don’t listen to it and complain about it. There’s lots of music that I don’t care for, but you can’t say it’s bad. That’s subjective. That would happen if we put out something new now also. When we released Van Halen II, the critics and some fans went, ‘Hey! It’s different than the first one.’ Well, yeah! It’s a different record. If it sounded like the first one then fans and critics would complain that it sounded the same. What the f#$k?”

@Forever_Free I agree as a fellow human being with Eddie’s opinion that this is a subjective subject and opinion based. Which is why it is in the social category and asking “what do you not like” etc. This is in no way to be considered a serious question, simply an opinion. Only curious since the majority of the masses drool over some music that I find unappealing to say the least. But again that does not mean anything to anyone else, simply personal preference. I welcome differing opinions, makes the world go around. How boring it would be if everyone was exactly the same.

Forever_Free's avatar

@Dig_Dug Completely agreed. No offense meant.
Years ago I would have answered Disco Sucks!

@Forever_Free I know so many people say that and that’s fine by me, but I have always liked disco even if I was “in the closet” about it. lol!

Forever_Free's avatar

^^ I appreciate it now more than I did in the past.

Queen was overrated. So was Van Halen. Every time I hear Van Halen I want to JUMP! out of my skin.

I always thought ELO was worthy of all the late night Saturday night appearances on Don Kushner’s Rock Concert.

^^ JUMP came out on the album 1984. You have to admit David Lee Roth sure could jump!

The Beatles.

filmfann's avatar

Gun and Roses
Led Zeppelin
Green Day

In general. Everyone has a song I might like. For example, I like Kashmir

Blackwater_Park's avatar

Oh yeah, I don’t care for Kiss either

Jons_Blond's avatar

I like many of these. :D

I was never a fan of Queen or Janis Joplin. I’m 50/50 with the Beatles. I like their early music but that’s it.

jca2's avatar

The big ones I don’t care for are The Beatles and Queen.

I also am not a fan of Jethro Tull or Bob Dylan.

I loved the first two Van Halen albums but after that, when they got more soft, more pop-rock-ish, I didn’t care for them with their synthesized sound. When I watched a documentary about Van Halen, David Lee Roth wanted to keep their rock sound whereas Eddie wanted to go more the synthesizer route, and since the band was essentially Eddie’s and his brother’s (hence the name “Van Halen”)) they had their way and Dave left the group. I liked a few Van Halen songs when they went the popular route, after Dave but to me, the best VH was the VH in the beginning (“Ain’t Talkin ‘Bout Love” and stuff like that).

I never did care for the Grateful Dead or the Mamas and the Papas. I guess I could throw Jimmy Hendrix into that mix. Not bad music, really, but I can only really take it in small doses spread out over a long period of time.
