    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.

    I use some of my JBLs every day, there are others that don't get used all that often. So sadly some are just gathering dust. My JBL PA system that's in my garage only gets once in a while. John

    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.

    aHa ! I felt 'eggzaktly' the same as you about Rush ! especially Geddy Lee's vocals !! Until ......
    They were in concert in Columbus Sept.2007 for a local radio station birthday bash. I went to the concert mainly for the birthday bash and came out with totally different regard for Rush.
    My gawd, Those guys can play ! what musicians !

    In my opinion, if you listen to 'later' Rush stuff from the 80's, 90's, he has toned down the vocals and is very listenable. I suggest borrowing someone's copy of Rush gold, and it's a double CD, and listen to the second CD only. It's all of Rush's later tunes, and I'll bet you'll change your mind. Maybe you still won't be a 'fan' of theirs, but the vocals you'll rethink somewhat. Do it and let me know what you think !

    Foghat ? They had two tunes I really liked, but nothing else .

    Couldn't agree more being a guitar picker myself, and in my opinion rap has always been disco in disguise.
