Bands you like but everyone else hates?

Postby Unabletothinkofname » Wed Apr 14, 2010 11:32 am UTC

I think most people have one of these, a band you love and that your friends simply cannot see the appeal.
Mine is the The Dillinger Escape Plan.

I suppose I could describe them as metal, seeing as mathcore is a genre in the metal universe, though it's incredibly difficult to describe their music other than that- impossible to follow shifting time signatures, sudden, inexplicable synth-pop or jazz breaks and relentless and unnerving quiet-loud moments.

I'll admit the first time I heard Sugar Coated Sour and their signature track 43% Burnt I absolutely hated it, especially the latter. Song starts, weird jerky riff, okay, fast bit, I think I'm getting the be-no, wait, now it's changed, guitar distortion's off, and-oh, it's heavy again, and...uh, slow jazz bit...?

Yeah, it's incredibly confusing at first. I don't even particularly like the stuff off the Calculating Infinity album. However I would strongly reccomend 2007's Ire Works, which mixes their trademark disjointed hardcore with tongue-in-cheek twisted pop dynamics (such as Black Bubblegum and Milk Lizard ) and long, atmospheric pieces as well as some bizarre electro-percussive minute-and-a-half interludes, to beguiling and brilliant effect.

So what's your band that no-one else seems to like but you?

Hrm....

Probably John Zorns Naked City/Painkiller stuff. An....interesting mix between freeform jazz and grindcore, most people I show it to look at me with the same look that one would usually give to a serial killer. Probably the best of his stuff would be his work with Naked City, which typically consists of him, guitarist Bill Frissel and Japanese vocalist Yamatsuka Eye, who's also the vocalist for the Boredoms and perhaps one of the craziest people not in a mental institute out there.
There definitely are people out there who like them, it's just that the vast majority of people consider them utterly abstract noise. If there's one thing you could compare them to, it would be the old Looney Tunes soundtracks. They change mood so quickly and the music is so hyperactive. You might not hear it at first, but you will.

Eh, see for yourself.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

Only people on the internet like them :(

Same goes for most of the oldies like Bob Dylan, Talking Heads, Beach Boys, Dead can Dance, Jefferson Airplane, Grateful dead, The Doors, Electric Light Orchestra and others.

It's like people hate them though. They just don't like them.

Dudes, everybody loves The Doors, The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, The Talking Heads, the Beach Boys and Sonic Youth.

everybody.

Second. Can't find many people who hate Nick Cave either.

Mine used to be Porcupine Tree. But now I hate them too. Earlier on it was black metal in general, but I don't think such niche music counts here though, as pretty much everyone outside the nice would hate the stuff.

My friend explains sonic youth as follows:
"Alright, so you know how like, sonic youth mixes genres and stuff and turns into this crazy fusion? Do you also know that nasty purplish brown color you got when you were six and mixed all your watercolors together? Sonic youth is that color: unpleasant and disappointing"

I think they're better than that, personally.

Backstreet Boys. *Prepares for trouble, makes it double*

I can't help it. They were the first "band" I heard when I was little and I am not ashamed to say that I still like some of their songs.

Alkaline trio and my chemical romance. All my friends consider this to be my most glaring character flaw, but I still think if you actually listen to it and ignore all the crap about 'emo kids' etc. etc. It's very enjoyable music. They're bands with slightly different followings, I know, but I tend to hang out with a mixture of drum & bass fans, metal people and indie cred-merchants, who tend to lump them in together.

Blink 182...

Can't help it, just enjoy their music. Though a few people I know like them.

I also enjoy third-wave ska, so there's ALOT of music that I like that no one else cares about, or even knows about. Though I have a few friends and family members that do...


Other than that, almost anything I listen to is strange and weird to my coworkers who are either straight from over the border or into rap and other popular stuff....
Oh. Well that's alright then.

It seems like everybody has a strong dislike of Crystal Castles. They're an electro-indie band from Toronto who are a little rough around the edges which is why I guess people have issues with them. The singer sounds like electricity sometimes.

Beach Boys made great music. And heck, even the Monkees were good, even though most of their stuff was played and composed by other people. Fun music is fun, regardless of the artistic integrity.

The hate for NSync and Backstreet Boys is a lot more extreme than it has to be. I don't know if it's good or bad music, but they were just scapegoat, just like the Jonas Brothers are today.

My guilty pleasure -- World/Inferno Friendship Society. It's punk-ish and pointless, the antithesis of what I look for in music, but I can't help it. (Everybody else hates them when I listen to it, though.) Besides, some of their songs do have actual meaning.

My favorite bands that people still hate, but I am confident enough about to give a hearty "Fuck off." --

Renard/his aliases (That is straight-up awesome electronica. Period.)

Venetian Snares -- Ditto the above. I shit you not, I am able to clear a room by blasting "Pwntendo"at full volume. I personally love the insane drums and SFX, but it makes everybody else run in terror. Oh well. Probably has something to do with the noise components and the 7/4 beat xD

Dream Theater -- Mixed bag on this one. I love all of their albums, but everybody else seems to like Panic Attack, Never Enough, and then hate the rest of their music. I blame Rock Band. But really, these are some of the most talented musicians I have EVER seen, maybe with a couple of equals like Mahavishnu Orchestra (Whom I acknowledge the immense skill of, but I don't regularly listen to them.)

Pwntendo seems pretty awesome. Tons of energy, which I enjoy.


EDIT: Your icon is made amazingly awesome while listening to that.


EDIT2: ok, I plugged Pwntendo into pandora. Thank you so very much.
Oh. Well that's alright then.

I LOVE the Fiery Furnaces. They took me about six months to get used to, but now Seven Silver Curses is one of my favourite songs.

Well since most people I know either listen to country or mainstream rap, all of my music is hated. Pretty much all of my music is either alt rock that is kind of indie.
Artists such as:
Passion Pit
Keane
Evilnine
and combine that with my smooth jazz
Candy Dulfer
Jabooze
etc.
etc.
and I get one list of music hated by most people I know.(Oh hell throw in the trance for good measure)

I have a habit of not really listening to the lyrics of a song at all. To me the lyrics are just another sound in the song, and the words don't hold much meaning. As a result, I often like songs with interesting beats, but terrible lyrics. Maybe this song would be a good example of what I'm talking about. Unrelated, but when playing Rockband at a friend's place, I suggested we play R.E.M. and was met with harsh criticism for liking them.

Uh, most everything I listen to?

But the ones people are probably most aware of are Aqua and t.A.T.u., and I think most people hate them. Though I think if most people knew of my other music, they'd hate it, too. :P (I don't listen to music that's particularly obscure, but I listen to music in many languages from a wide array of countries, so it's unlikely for people to have heard of Andreea Bălan, Blümchen, and Блестящие, even though they've had great success in Romania, Germany, and Russia, respectively.)

Let's see, I like almost all of t.A.T.u.'s songs, but my favorites are probably Ya Soshla S Uma/All The Things She Said, Ya Tvoya Ne Pervaya/Show Me Love, and Kosmos/Cosmos (Outer Space). Gomenasai is also great. Since just about everyone sings better in his/her native language, I think their Russian albums are better, especially Vesyolye Ulybki compared to Waste Management (the Transformer Mix of Running Blind justifies that whole album, though).

t.A.T.u. has also taught me the Cyrillic alphabet and how to read Russian (if not actually understand it), so I have that, too. :D

Fastball.

...Yes, the guys that you probably only remember for "The Way".

Let me explain myself here: Upon discovering the joys of downloading music for the first time, I immediately went and try to find new albums from every band I was really into (read: my metalhead dad bought me their albums in hopes that I'd stop listening to top-40s crap) back in the day. Barenaked Ladies... not much in the way of surprises, and I had already made a habit of buying physical copies of all their stuff. Smash Mouth... everything after the first two albums sounded bad. Fastball... holy crap, their new stuff is actually pretty good. So, I downloaded their new stuff, loved it to pieces.
Last year, I actually got to see them at two shows. One was a nice little 3-hour set at a bar in New York where they had the stage the whole time, and while it was small, it was filled with a good number of people that were fans. The other show was a free show with a bunch of different acts playing the whole day, and they were pretty much the first act up. People mostly hung around to listen to them play "The Way", which they smartly saved for near the end, and left. :? It was a free show, you think they'd give them more of a chance. Hell, I sat through every act for both days, regardless if I knew them or not.

I have quite a few bands I like that not even my family sees the appeal to.

Some of them aren't in English, so that's not that strange. For example,
DDT (a Russian band...yes, Russian! Propavshi bez Vesti is an excellent album, not very conventional...Lyubov' is one of those albums that calms me down after a bad day, and Mir Nomer Nol' is weird but mostly likeable)
Myslovitz, a polish band (whose best album I've heard is Milosc w Czasach Popkultury, though I haven't heard much more than that)
Siddharta (Slovenian, they made three stellar albums so far which I have heard--Id, Nord, and Petrolea)

Unfortunately, I can't say I understand polish or slovenian, and I have some limited russian comprehension, but they all have good style.

Dishwalla's a good one too, especially their last, self-titled album. I saw them live on their last tour, and they put on an intense three hour show. Nobody here cares about them, though, or Silversun Pickups. Or Mazzy Star. Or, most disappointingly, Screaming Trees.

I'm sorry, but I like Abba. Yes, I know, but I do. It makes no sense that I do. Pop, with 1 or 2 exceptions, has never really done it for me, and cheesey europop(scandinavipop?) usually just makes me cringe. But it does sound good.

What's wrong with them? I like both of 'em. A few weeks back they played Barbie Girl in a club and everybody liked it. I know a friend and me were lip-syncing to the whole song. She did the female parts, I the male parts. Tatu is cool as well.

A lot of my friends don't get Pretty Girls Make Graves. I think they're awesome.

I blame Rock Band. But really, these are some of the most talented musicians I have EVER seen, maybe with a couple of equals like Mahavishnu Orchestra (Whom I acknowledge the immense skill of, but I don't regularly listen to them.)


Sadly I know a lot of people who'd die for dream theatre. it's sad. really. Good musicians sure but... there's a point it becomes showing off above good music. Ey Malmsteen fans? :P

If you go up to most people and ask if they like Bon Jovi they'll scream at you, then a few hours later be singing word for word to livin on a prayer lol I think secretly 90% of the adult population likes them but can't bring themselves to admit it.
