    Exclamation Artists/Groups you cant stand ?

    we've got threads for FAVs...why not a thread for those that you cant stand ? The ones that you get up and change the station , rather than listen to them ?

    I'll start.

    Bruce Springsteen
    Rush
    Yes
    Thin Lizzy
    Ambrosia (some YES clone)
    Captain Beyond
    Frank Zappa
    Genisis/Phil Collins
    Dixi-land - anything

    You are welcome to disagree, but let's keep it civil. Please add your AGYCS entries.

    Being a long time pro guitarist, I tend to get irritable at anything that doesn't have any redeeming melodic content or talent. So, although I disagree with seawolf (some of the guys, especially Rush, can truly play phenominally), I understand his choices....but my picks are anything that has to do with Rap, Gangsta Rap, or anything that involves a drum machine, trashy street talk, and zero musical talent. Ludacris, and the ilk, come to mind.

    And, just to assure anyone I am not being racist....there isn't a single other black performer in Jazz, Blues, rock, that I dislike....ok, maybe Buddy Guy's sloppy overrated guitar licks....

    My problem with Rush is the lead singer , not esp the guitar. Cant stand his voice and inflections.

    Foghat also.

    Worst I ever heard was Pat Boone's "heavy metal" CD. It was offered to me by I student; I had to give it a token listen.

    Oh man, that conjurs up visions of William Shattners album , and Leonard Nimmoys too
