  • Any bands you love but also hate?

    for me it's U2. I love their 80's stuff but can't stand most anything past Achtung Baby.

    What about you guys?

    Haven't been a band fanned since The first 4 Zeps. Period. Don't even know Houses or Song Remains - recognize a smattering of the recognizable riffs but that's it. Since then it's been individual tunes, the majority prominent enough to get to my ears - major radio IOW. Do not otherwise care for the respective bands so there's no hate involved unless I had bought their (more often than not) disappointing album(s).

      I feel the same about U2, but bailed after Under a Blood Red Sky - I also quit listening to REM after Life's Rich Pageant. Probably shows my age & era, but I felt both bands veered stylistically in a drastic way after those records.

      My favorite band with a bad drummer: The Meat Puppets are a band I have always really liked, but they really had a very poor drummer in Derek Bostrom.

      2 classic rock bands that I like the 1st half of their careers are Tom Petty & Aerosmith - No interest in Aerosmith post Run-DMC comeback & only like earlyTom Petty before he discovered that strummy hit making style.

      I am a huge Who & Keith Moon fan, but am only really a rabid early Who fan - the later 70's stuff that gets big & excessive is hit & miss for me. But I couldn't be a bigger fan of early mod Who up 'til Tommy or so.

        There are several bands that their first album was amazing, and their following albums were dissappointing. I guess all of their creative juices were shot in that first album. It's not a matter of hating, because a lot of times the bands faded away after the non-success of album 2.
        A prime example of this is Captain Beyond, a MUST listen to anyone considered a progressive rocker, just from the historical significance (remember the year it came out 71-72, and what else was happening in music at that time). The album cover itself is one of the most collectible in album history. Their second album? Boring. Done.
        It may be shock value, and then failure to continue innovation. Felt a little the same with Emerson Lake and Palmer, amazing first album, Tarkus, their second, though good, but the shock value of innovation was gone.
        It wasn't really hate, just dissappointment that obviously excellent musicians failed to continue pushing the envelope if that makes any sense.

          Same. I cant bear to listen to anything new they put out. I still buy it, though...but never make it through the whole cd.

            Rush. Anything beyond Moving Pictures bores me to tears. Their new one is really good, but I just dont care.

                There's a ton of bands I loved that I no longer do, but hate is a bit strong...

                I don't hate most recent U2, or REM to use two examples already mentioned...I just don't care for or consider it.
                But I don't think it's any surprise when a band has a couple albums that I consider great/amazing, or even just good/decent, and then falls off. That's actually to be expected.
                For cripe's sake, somebody buy that kid a freaking DICTIONARY already!

                  I loved Smashing Pumpkins until I listened to their lyrics.

                      As far as bands turning ****************ty after a certain period of time... Incubus is the first that comes to mind. Pretty much any classic rock band that started in the 60's or 70's. If they were still putting out music in the 80's and 90's, it was horrible.

                          Yeah, that's kinda what I was thinking (except for King's X, because I've never really listened to them, sorry Fitch)

                            Queen for me. Anything past "News of The World" I didn't hear unless it got played on the radio.
                            Here's a tip - if you put out some horrible lo-fi recording that sounds like a Gorilla banging an antelope while using a vacuum with a bad belt drive to suck up a floor full of marbles and silverware - and folks don't line up in mass numbers to hop on your wagon... maybe it ain't us who don't "get it". - THX1138

                              The Eagles. My mother od'ed me on them growing up, but I still love "Life in the Fast Lane," and get nostalgic when I hear some of their songs. I dislike their obvious attempts at commercialism, being the band version of Jimmy Buffet, their justification about taking down Youtube covers, etc. Joe Walsh is badass, though.
