    I hated the Smiths, now I’m a miserable old(er) fart I love them.

    I never really got to grips with the genius of Barry Manillow. Now, in my more mature years, I realise how much emptier my life was for not fully embracing songs about showgirls called Lola

    Not actually appreciating but more like missing some bits that might be interesting …

    I bought A Love Supreme by John Coltrane years ago but found it horrible to listen to.

    I decided to give it another go in the car on the way to work this week and it is sublime.

    That and The Reynolds Girls.

    puts head over the edge of teh desk and types “Wagner” – not the one of the TV but the one who wrote sublime music. In my Yoof I would have sneared at anyone liking it. Heading back under my desk now………

    Simple Minds, hated them when I was a teenager and everyone else at school loved them. Like the OP I was into Discharge, Vice Squad, Crass, Blitz, etc.

    Going to see Simple Minds in November!

    Lynyrd Skynyrd or however you spell them
    Credence Clear Water Revival
    AC/DC

    I wasn’t born when they were ‘current’ but I just thought it was a load of hippy rubbish when I was younger. Now have them on repeat most days….

    For me it is Chic (Niles Rogers and Bernard Edwards)

    Roxy Music

    quite a departure from Discharge, the Damned and lot of other noisy stuff when I was a nipper.

    Pink Floyd, The Who, Led Zepplin, The Beatles.

    I’ve just realised that it’s pretty much the whole of music from the late 60’s and 70’s.

    Of course, it’s all better than this modern rubbish.

    After well over a decade of rock puritanism and furious opposition to anything even vaguely ‘urban’ sounding I’ve got quite into my thoughtful Hip-hop, Aesop Rock and Sage Francis in particular.

    Also now dabbling in Dubstep so I can’t help but feel my musical taste is travelling in roughly the opposite direction to how most people go when they hit thier 30’s.

    No Coldplay for me yet, my wife has strict instructions to euthanaise me on the spot if that happens!

    On hitting 40 I stopped listening to Fleetwood Mac (Peter Green era, obviously), blues, Pink Floyd, Muse, Coldplay…

    I now irritate my wife with Devil Sold His Soul, Bring me the Horizon, Slayer, While She Sleeps, Palm Reader, Suicidal Tendencies, Feed the Rhino, Deftones, Dead Harts, Meshugga, Hacktavist, Cancer Bats etc… if it isn’t screamey and loud it gets no air time, I used to hate that kind of vocal style….. think it is the outlet for my mid-life crisis, can’t afford a sports car!

    About the only bands/music that I appreciate now, and didn’t when it was current, is the Smiths, and ABBA, who I discovered made several stunning, more down-beat songs on their later albums. I only found this out after recording the two ABBA Gold albums onto cassette for my folks to play in the car. Cassandra, and The Day Before You Came are big favourites, now. The Smiths How Soon Is Now is also a massive favourite, too, but I’ve grown to like all the Smiths stuff.
    Lots of stuff that I didn’t like then and still don’t like much, like jazz, and C&W. Alt.Country/Americana is fine, though.

    Rolling Stones, wish now, I had been into them earlier.

    Finding charity Vinyls for bargain prices has me all excited about listening to music all over again 😉

    Being 15 and into crass and discharge I absolutely detested pink floyd, led Zep and AC/DC. Turns out I’ve cd’s by all of them now that I actually quite like….
    Chic are ace (although sister sledge I prefer, I just love we are family and lost in music).
    I’ve always loved proper country though. Merle haggard is my hero 😀
    I also used to hate goldfrapp (the Loon’s favourite band at one point). Turns out I’ve a couple of their CDs now too. And they get a spin every now and again too…
    Never really got on with the clash until London Calling… More of a Buzzcocks fan really.
    ETA: could never have seen myself listening to Bach or Purcell back in the day either, let alone stuff like Part, Reich, etc.
