So let's hear it, y'all. Which jams, genres, diddies, instruments or musicing of a kind do you not particularly care for? Which do you hate? What falls within those boundaries for you? Can a band be great but be ruined by its members for you? Let's not like things together while also potentially finding out our GTU fam hates our favourite band.

 

On the more positive side, it might at least give us all a heads-up on what not to play should we ever meet up in person. Or, alternatively, exactly something to play to be a jerk. That can be fun too?

 

I will start. Slide to the left.

 

 

 

Slide to the right

 

 

 

---------------------------------------------hate music now y'all!

 

Ahem. No hate per se, but I never got anything out of Snow Patrol. Or Oasis, but then I never did give them a proper try. I generally try to be respectful of the music others choose, but good gravy I have immense difficulty shutting the fuck up about most country music bands. I put this down to growing up steeped in it then finding out years later "holy shit, there's so much more to music than what I've been privy to!" and down the rabbit hole I went, never to be seen again by your George Straits, Brookes and Dunns, and all those boot scootin' bastards. Though, admittedly, I will still lend an ear to Shania Twain because shut up, I was a kid and she was beautiful and talented and shut up dammit! 

 

Your turn. One hop this time.

I won't do The Beatles. I hate modern poppy country and I'm not super into most rap and hip-hop, although there have been a couple of songs as of late that I haven't thought were awful.

I'm starting to avoid most things that focus too heavily on guitars and vocals with weak or absent rhythm sections.

I feel like I'll listen to most things. I just find it annoying when a band is really derivative as well as rubbish. Like Godsmack or Muse of System of a Down or whatever.

derivative rubbish Muse

Wash your mouth out with soap and water.

I always find it funny when Americans call people cunts because typically Americans find the word "cunt" so offensive. We use it in Ireland the whole time, and we even refer to our mates as cunts.

 

Jaysus, lad, yer some cunt. Ya havin, a pint?

The beautiful thing is everyone is right.

I like the Beatles, they sound great to me, I find meaning in their lyrics and their artistic development. I'm right.

Reese doesn't, he's right too.

Taste, really, is what it boils down to.

And Neal, swearing in America is hilarious, you realize how offensive the Brits & Irish can be. That being said I enjoy teaching swear words to my colleagues.

Bellend & bollocks are favorites.

I remember saying "cunt" last time I was in NY. I can't remember the full conversation but we were in a bar and got chatting to a few locals about this, that and the other. And I was telling a story about a mate of mine back home about how he fell off the roof of his house one time. When I was getting to the main point of the story, I said something along the lines of "and you'll never guess what the silly cunt went and did". I swear, as long as my arse points south, I will never receive such a look of absolute disgust again in my life.

I have always liked "wanker". And Cowabunga, naturally. Anyway. 

 

 

U2. I hate U2 so very much. I don't know if it's the music or the guy or the whole shebang but yuck every time I hear it. 

 

I also have a kind of love/hate thing with Twenty One Pilots. On the one hand I find them so douchey! But on the other, they have 2 or 3 catchy tunes. I dunno.

Boy & War are great albums, well worth checking out...just forget everything you know about U2.

Again, though, taste.
Ooh, and Achtung Baby.

I like the obvious ones, with or without you and I love Sunday Bloody Sunday

I don't like much else. I also didn't like watching the edge in that jimmy page/ jack white movie.

U2's work up until Achtung Baby was pretty good stuff. They haven't been good much since then though. And Bono's preachy superdouche persona doesn't win any favours. 

 

I like the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones, and country, and rap and hiphop, and classical, and bluegrass. I don't gravitate to heavy guitar based music, or opera, but otherwise I spend a lot more of my limited time liking things instead of not liking things.

Yeah I can agree with that too, I've never really gotten into much metal. I like some industrial, and quirkier heavy stuff like Marilyn Manson or deftones, but never got into avenged sevenfold or opeth ect.

I was definitely deep into that stuff for a long time. The term "fretwanking" came up pretty regularly in relation to my tastes. My teenage self would probably kick my ass for saying so, but I do find myself getting bored of it all. Never thought I'd say Metallica is boring for me, but here we are. The only way I listen to any of those old bands anymore is through VKgoesWild's piano renditions on Youtube. Vastly improved if you ask me, but no ones asking so it's cool if I just go ahead and say it. That's how opinions work, right?

I was a punk in high school. The metalheads just seemed so dumb that I couldn't befriend them. And their music was kind of a lot like mine (ie: loud as fuck), but it was so super boring. Punk was fun, fast and melodic, and it could be about skating and drinking and partying and chilling, or pretty super political and philosophical. It was diverse and interesting. I just haven't found much metal that doesn't just go into shitty metal tropes. Like, we get it, blood and satan and violence and a loud guitar and a shitty bassist. I'm sorry the girl you liked in middle school didn't like you back.

 

 

 

I do like some druggy/doomy stuff, and some Slayer and Metallica and Megadeath, but less and less often as I get older.

Yep, to all that.

 

And welcome back Tyler.
