    I don’t understand when I get one letter but there’s a band around it. That band can go take a hike.

    Stereophonics, Manic Street Shouters, Oasis, Elbow, etc. all make me turn the radio off.

    More annoying what they throw it on the floor outside the front door and then it comes out in the litter tray a day later. Thems are annoying bands.
    On the musical side. I hate everything. Radio 4 all day.

    Most modern day ‘guitar’ bands are pretty shite. Radiohead excepted.

    I always hated Pigface

    Pigface were experimental!
    Don’t get rap or that terrible stuff like rap* but with distorted (pitch bending) on the vocal.
    For some reason french rap is fantastic.

    The Smiths. Absolutely awful drivel. I can understand politically confused teenagers liking them but once you’ve grown up? No, sorry. very odd.

    Leonard Cohen. My wife would leave me if he asked her to but all I want to do when I hear his music is kill myself. if I ever were to actually kill myself, I’d deliberately put some Cohen music on in the room, video myself killing myself and pre-arrange for the video to be sent to Cohen.

    Conversation over the weekend about bands that are popular but personaly make your teeth itch.

    Mine is Texas, just awful, ear bleedingly awful. 😡 I was in a minority of one but I know I am right.

    Suede. Blur. Foo Fighters. Muse.

    I also really, really don’t get Jay-Z. There’s far better MCs out there, yet people think the sun shines out of his mike.

    I don’t get rock/metal bands that are still playing the same old riffs, using the same old guitar sounds that have been done to death over the past 40 years.

    I’m sure there are 1000s of bands I don’t get, but many of them I just won’t hear.

    Agree with Texas, just don’t know what they are supposed to be

    Also see Maroon 5

    So so so many. Florence & the Machine for starters.

    Every tune is the basically same, except the one that people probably have heard which is the same but slightly less depressing than all the others.

    so far I can’t say that I disagree with any of the suggestions posted..

    all a bunch of formulaic, self congratulatory, mithering, over rated ****..

    I quite like Florence now though surprisingly, considering that I got into a heated discussion on here a few years back about how crap she was..

    I’d leave my wife if he asked me. 🙂

    For me it’s The Fall, I don’t actually dislike anything I’ve heard I just don’t get it. I can understand people liking something I don’t like but I have trouble understanding how anyone can like anything that leaves me completely indifferent.

    Texas??? So is this a current discussion then? Very well then, I never saw the fuss about the Glenn Miller band, more of a Duke Ellington man myself…

    agree with most of the above.
    but absolutely amazed no one has mentioned take that yet.
    i cant stand mediocrity being hyped up as if its the absolute best.

    Hated the Smiths when I was a teenager, quite like them now 🙂

    Anyway: Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. Dreary crap.

    Some of Take That’s tunes are incredibly catchy…

    Second Take That. Hateful mediocrity of the worst kind.

    Music for people that don’t really like music (Like X-Factor).

    Rod Stewart.

    Radiohead – complete turd!

    Another vote for the Kings Of Leon

    I went to see them live and it was the dullest gig I’ve ever been too. I’ve seen spotty teenagers working in Macdonalds who looked more enthusiastic and engaged in what they’re doing. They just looked bored. As did we. Except we’d paid them for the privilege

    Anything that comes out of the X Factor’s sphincter is pretty toss. Just music by numbers for a target market.
    Proper music does have a target market, it just is!
    Mumford and Sons. Folk music for people who don’t like folk music.

    Editors
    Franz Ferdinand
    The white stripes
    etc etc.. all the bands people who sneered at my 80/90s rock collection told me I would like. I tried, I really did. Then I went back and listened to Van Halen.

    Spotify has been interesting tho, now I have a favourite by a band called The Wombats which I think has increased my music street cred immeasurably 😉

    Amazed that you think we are Take That’s target audience.
    Does this mean you do get Boyzone, One Direction, One True Voice, that other Irish lot, etc etc etc?

    Muse, again. Used to feel the same about the Foo Fighters, but changed my opinion a year or two ago. Though not sure that counts for much, as my music taste is so eclectic.
