    1: Steve Vai has sh!t tone
    2: If you need auto tune then you can't sing
    3: I love John petrucci, but he looks ridiculous all buffed up
    4: the voice and American idol are only adding to the problem
    5: "motorboatin" is one of the worst songs I've heard in years and now it's everywhere.
    6: lady gaga is the definition of a sellout (talented as she is)
    7: OJ did it
    8: Kanye west is a talentless prick
    9: lil Wayne is even worse
    10: I'm sorry but Neil Schon.... I don't get it.... He's good sure but lets be real here.....

    Those are my top ten unpopular music (mostly music) opinions amongst musicians and non musicians alike.

    Yeah, seems like every other issue of RS has at least one huge article about 40 year old prog bands and how much they suck. There was never a "war," but if it was, the Clash and Pistols definitely won it. Relax, though; nobody's coming after your record collection, just yet. "Revisit" all you like. Or do you mean that it's time for the rest of us to revisit things you like?

    I think music of this era is complete garbage. I think music went into cardiac arrest in the late 90s and then died almost immediately. Software and autotune has taken the soul and emotion out of music. Bands don't practice or rehearse nearly as much as their predecessors did, and it shows. They just tweak, cut, copy, paste, cover it up, etc in the studio. Everything has gotten ridiculously simplistic, homogenized, cleansed and become too sterile. Feels very pre-fab. In the past, you got the feeling the bands sang about things they lived. You felt like you knew where they were coming from even if you had never been. Now, it feels like all the songs were written by a bunch of suits even in cases where they aren't.

    I think Kings of Leon suck.

    I think SRV is over-rated. Virtuoso, yes, but hated his tone, sound, feel, etc. Can't stand to listen to any of his stuff.

    I don't get how anyone could dislike the Beatles. One of, if not the most important bands of all time. Their style changed and if you don't like one records, skip ahead to another and you get a completely different style, feel, etc.

    I'm steeling myself for pariah status. I dislike almost all 70s music. Yes, that includes most of Rush, Sabbath, Led Zep, etc. I only like the bands that started at the end of the 70s but were better known in the 80s, like Dire Straits, The Police, Van Halen, etc.

    1 - Not all (famous) bands of the 60s, 70s and 80s were that good (we've got the proof on youtube, biatch!).
    2 - The Stones have a couple of catchy songs, but in general they suck.
    3 - GnR had a couple of catchy songs, but in general they sucked.
    4 - I think SRV is (was) boring and a terrible singer.
    5 - I can't shred, but I think the "feel" argument is often used as an excuse for lack of technical skills.
    6 - The music business is show business... it's not about music.

    Dark side of the tomb
    Lets see.

    Pink Floyd, The Doors, The Who, and Rush have a few songs I like but overall they're just kinda meh.

    I like alot of pop music for no other reason than because its catchy.

    I dislike Radiohead because I think they suck, not because I dont "get" them. This is true for Tool and U2 also.

    Dimebag as average at best.

    I dont see what the big deal is about Ghost.

    Everything Jack White has been associated with thus far has been good. Some of it great.

    Every band dosnt get there own genre. Just because band x dosnt sound exactly like band y dosnt mean we should invent a new genre just for them.

    Vai, Satch, John 5, Buckethead, and Yngwie all impress me, but bore the hell out of me.

    Nothing good comes from any genre of music with the word core at the end of it.

    Gene Simmons ego and merch aside Kiss made good music.

    I really could care less about the rock n roll hall of fame.

    Blues music bores me.

    Post AJFA Metallica isnt that bad.

    Black Sabbath was better with Ozzy.

    If you leave your band to do a solo project, said project shouldnt sound exactly like the band you left.

    Alexi Laiho is more talented than he gets credit for.

    Nirvana are highly overrated.

    Nuno Bettencourt is one of the best guitar players ever.

    Slash was the best thing about Guns N Roses.

    Terry Reid > Robert Plant

    Punk for the most part is garbage.

    I love 99% of everything Wednesday 13 has ever done.

    Zakk Wylde is a good guitarist.

    Buddy Holly > Elvis

    Don Henleys voice makes me want to punch him.

    David Crosbys voice, face, music, and style make me want to punch him.

    Cookie monster vocals always sound stupid.

    Clapton at his best isnt anything to write home about.

    Vinyl is only better because of the bigger cover art.

    When I see a post about somebody playing in a dejent band I automatically assume they're too young to drive.

    When I see a post about somebody playing in a blues band I automatically think they're wearing a fedora and a bowling shirt while typing.

    Thats all I can think of for now.

    By the way, Im new here. So hi.

    oh good to see you again, shitstorm!! lol

    After reading the last 2 pages, I will add:

    The sex pistols, and to a much lesser degree the clash, were horrible to mediocre bands (repectively) and as imprortant as punk was in the late 70's, I hate that these 2 bands are considered the pioneers...especially the pistols, not one redeeming quality unless you count the fact that there was no redeeeming qualities AS a redeeming quality (for a punk band, its plausable) and it makes me nauseus when good bands I really like use the sex pistols as an influence...ugh come on, you mean it or is THAT the band you are SUPPOSED to site for some reason

    punk for me was never about the actual music, it was about the punch in the face to corporate rock, self indulgent musicians, prog rock, huge arena bands...punk bands late to the scene were much better than the pioneers...
    I feel better now...

    I'll start with these:

    • Listening to John Mayer or Maroon 5 increases your risk of contracting ear herpes by 300%.
    • I don't understand what's so great about Pink Floyd or Queen.
    • Musically, Muse is a great band, but enough with the wailing and moaning vocals. Same with Radiohead for that matter.
    • Nirvana didn't save rock, they ruined it for the past 20 years.
    • Nobody should have to live in a world where American Pie and Sweet Home Alabama exist.
    • Sgt Pepper sucked and was not rock n roll. In fact, the Beatles probably should have broken up sooner for putting out such garbage.
    • SuperTramp deserves the brass balls awards for kick ass clarinet fills in their songs.

    I can't understand what all the fuzz is about regarding The Beatles. I've tried numerous times to get into them, but they just don't do it for me.

    Absent a fair number of notable exceptions (whom I DO enjoy), I believe that as a rule, the biotches can't rock.
