I change my mind a lot.
I don't think it's a case of wanting to be different I just think that some music lasts & some music gets old pretty quickly. There are plenty of times when i've heard a bands first couple of singles & loved them & got really excited about an album , then when the album comes out you find the singles are the only good songs on it.

Changing your opinion is growth. Who wants to listen to the same 100 albums for the rest of their life. And who hears everything there's to hear on the first listen.

I'm the opposite, I really can't see why ACDC take such a bad rap. Other than many people loving them and sometimes being overly vocal about them, whats there really to not like? They have their boring moments I guess, I mean I didn't think much of Stiff Upper Lip, but then the entire BIB album is golden.

I just find a lot of their stuff to be feel-good music. There is no shortage of clever riffs and the band work is complementary of them. I don't listen to ACDC and go "woo me with your superior skills" or "lets see if you can make me give a shit about the lyrics". I don't think ACDC were musicians to be broken down and understood. All ACDC did was make rock songs, and as far as I know, they're "classic" because they consistently made rock songs better than anyone else.

In saying that, I can understand if someone hates the vocals. I hated James Hetfield for a long time for that reason, and his vocals aren't nearly as obtrusive as Brians.

I think people hate AC/DC for the same reason they hate the Ramones , they refuse to change. In some bands i'd see that as a negative.But in the case of AC/DC & The Ramones I think those 2 bands do what they do better than anybody else. I love AC/DC's 70s albums with Bon Scott they're much more bluesy & Scott's lyrics are miles better than anything Johnson wrote, those albums are a mile away from the pop rock that came along later on.
I actually really liked Stiff Upper Lip , It reminded me of those early albums.

I can understand that, I just don't see why people think their one of the best bands ever. They're good at what they do and everything, but it wasn't anything innovative, and theres no problem with that its just they get hype as one of the best bands ever with a catalog of amazing albums and I don't understand that.

^^ Thats the thing Crow, the people that call them the best thing ever, have ACDC on their iPods in amongst Akon and Adema and Britney Spears. They're the same ones that are radio listeners only (though I don't mean that in completely negative way). The people that tend to love ACDC but don't shout to the world about them are the people more like myself and Crowe and Urban who can put ACDC into perspective. Even boo boo loves ACDC but he's not one to say the're the best thing ever.

Oh and Urban, 110% agree with you on the "resistance to change" being a huge quality for ACDC, where for other bands it fails miserably.

I think one of the reasons I love AC/DC so much isn't because they've put out spectacular albums , but because I can put on any of their albums from any time in their career & enjoy it. There are not many bands that have been around for over 30 years that I can say that about.
