An Infinite Number Of Things That Pisses Me Off About Music
 
This is my list , you wanna add stuff make your own.
This isn't in any order BTW


I love it that if you go to google image search and type in 'Weezer Fans' the first result you get is this lot of rather bored looking individuals. Hell , they even got one guy in mid yawn.

But the real reason I decided to include them has got nothing to do with my hatred of nerdy people with whiney voices making commercial pop songs complete with a 'humorous' video to go with it. Oh no the reason that they piss me off is for the simple reason that if you get a bunch of Weezer fans together and start to discuss music they sound like a bunch of 5 year olds.

'I like the blue one'
'Well I like the green one'
'Hey have you heard the red one yet'

It's enough to make me want to lay a brown one.

This is my new favorite thread. The Grammys and Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame better be in here.

Insane Clown Posse. I realize their fifteen minutes of fame have long passed, but damn I hate these tools and any band remotely resembling them.

99 : "IRONIC" RETRO T-SHIRTS WORN BY PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO INTEREST IN THE BAND ON THEM.

Like this vacant airhead celebrity pictured above one of my ex-girlfriends owned a Motorhead t-shirt even thought she didn't even like the band.

I remember a few years ago during the row when Alex Ferguson wrapped a football boot around David Beckhams head. Everybody was going on about it and all I can remember was seeing him pictured in a t-shirt with The Cult's Electric album on it thinking to myself 'That guy listens to the Cult about as much as I listen to his wife'.

Narrow minded Metal fans who create sub-sub genres in the belief that it makes their bands cooler and even heavier. Guess what? 80% of metal is crap and I'm a Metal fan.

LOL. I think the only type of music worse than metal as far as that goes is electronica. I love a lot of electronic music but the subgenres get freaking ridiculous. I mean just look at this list!

I don't 4 words is excessive but I listen to a bunch of emo and they're much worse at this. I think fragments are the annoying ones. Meanwhile Back in Communist Russia, And So I Watch from Afar, Of Sinking Ships, As the Poets Affirm, etc etc...

Showing off your paradidles for 10 minutes quite frankly doesn't impress me.

Playing them with your head or your testicles would however impress me.

Bear that in mind the next time you ruin a concert by boring the pants of everybody in the time that you could add 2 or 3 songs to your set list that people would actually enjoy hearing instead.

Janszoon 08-08-2008 03:44 PM

I think long band names are the natural result of there being so many band names that are already taken. So it's either long names or names with numbers in them, and I definitely prefer something like "Explosions in the Sky" over something like "Blink-182".

Yes! I went to a Ween show this past winter that was great until the 15 minute drum solo at the end. Who the hell goes to a Ween show to hear the drummer anyway?

simplephysics 08-08-2008 04:45 PM

You must be starting with the safe ones, noone has gotten pissy at what's made the list yet.

lucifer_sam 08-08-2008 05:01 PM

Well, you're already taking pot-shots at Bonzo, so we'll just see.

It would be awesome to see this completed rather quickly...your last 100 took how many years?

Urban Hat€monger ? 08-08-2008 05:23 PM


Punk was a good thing ... at first.

Take a bunch of art school drop outs who can hardly play and get them ranting about the establishment , and then when you get bored of doing that move on and do something else. Anyone who was actually creative in the punk scene got bored of it after a couple of years and it died just as quickly as it started.

But not in America

Somewhere along the line America took all the originality out of punk and have been flogging this dead horse since about 1982. A few bands got it and actually did something original. Most didn't. Somehow the 'DIY ethic' went from meaning 'do something orginal' to 'release your ****ty 3 chord thrash on some obscure record label you started yourself and call anyone making more money than you a fake '. And there's the rules that seem to have added to it. Which I find extremely funny considering punk was supposed to be about anarchy & nihilism. Endless bleating on about 'selling out' even though the Pistols openly admitted they were in it for the money. As soon as you added a 4th chord these idiots would whinge & bleat about it. And don't even get me started on straight edge , one of the dumbest things ever to be associated with any genre of music , let alone one that is SUPPOSED to be offensive & dangerous.
And then there's skateboards. What the fuck have skateboards got to do with anything? Skatepunk? Give me a fucking break why not have space-hopper punk while you're at it.

Thank you America for taking all the fun out of something that should have died decades ago.

Booooooooooooooooooooooring

And yes I did include that picture just to piss people off here
:D

94 : POST 2000 BRITISH ROCK

Bloc Party , Maxïmo Park, The Futureheads , The Rakes , The Fratellis , The Cribs , The Kooks , The Editors , The Automatic , The Wombats , Maccabees , Pigeon Detectives. The list goes on and on and on. and they're all crap. They all look the same , most of them sound the same. Some hybred of The Smiths , The Jam and a bit of energy left over from punk. It seems thats all you need to get a record deal in the UK right now. The days of diversity in what was once a proud music tradition has all but vanished. Thank you MTV & NME for ruining the last vestiges of good music that was relatively mainstream and easily accessable.

Urban Hat€monger ? 08-08-2008 07:06 PM


I don't hate classic rock. I'd be a hypocrite if I said I did. How can I when I listen to bands like Sabbath , Aerosmith , Alice Cooper , Deep Purple and others on a regular basis.

However

There are a certain bunch of people who seem to think music died in 1990s. That nothing since can even touch what was around in the 70s. The sort of people who consider Guns & Roses and Nirvana the last 'good bands' to come out.

I mean how depressing must it be if you are a fan of music and your list of favourite albums looks like this

1. Pet Sounds
2. Sgt Pepper
3. Dark Side Of The Moon
4. IV
5. Tommy

I mean by all means enjoy those albums if you do but just bear in mind that if you can't even bring yourself to call an album that has sold less than 10 million copies one of your favourites then i'm not going to take you seriously.

The same sort of people who moan all todays music sucks and complain about there being nothing good on the radio or TV but don't bother looking anywhere else.
The sort of people who deride hip-hop because it doesn't have 'real musicians'
The sort of people who hate electronica because 'there's no emotion in pushing buttons'

Basically people who have buried their head in the sand who clutch their copies of Led Zeppelin II close to their chests complaining that music isn't as good as it was back then.

I'm in my 30s , so is Jackhammer , so is R-T we're always looking for new things to enjoy. I might be more cynical and harder to impress than when I was when I was 20/21 but the enthusiasm is there. There's just no excuse for not making any effort to look if you consider yourself a fan of music.

I'm in my 30s too and I totally hear you on this point. Also, I feel like I run into a lot of people who think the "alternative" explosion of the early to mid 90s was some high watermark in rock history and those people piss me off as much as the classic rock snobs.

Now don't get me wrong here , I don't actually like this song. BUT if a girl came up to me and sung it to me like this i'd be quite touched by it.



If however she sang it to me like this



I'd call the police fearing for my life.

Man...my brother could imitate Whitney perfectly singing this song. Kinda scary actually.

I don't agree with a lot of things you say (I'm sure you have some ammo saved up for us proggies, admit it) and rest assured I will find a lot to nitpick about your list.

But this is 100% correct.

Whitney Houston kicks the arse out of everything she does.
I find it irritating no end when a person like her, who has an undeniably impressive vocal range, feels the need to flex there warbling skills at the expense of a song.
Mariah Carey (Queen of Warbles) is another offender of overcooked vocals.
Nothing a competent sniper with a high powered rifle and a telescopic sight couldn't cure mid warble.
This would be in my top 5.

boo boo 08-09-2008 04:47 AM

Seriously I hope prog fans make your list.

You know what I mean if you've ever seen progarchives user reviews.

The fact that a good pop album like 90125 has a lower rating than a steaming pile of **** like Tormato just because "it's not prog" shows just how stupid and biased these purists are.

Then you have a lot of guys who don't even know what progressive means, calling Radiohead uncreative and a ripoff of britpop bands (you know because they're british) yet they just can't get enough of Kansas.

There was even this one idiot calling Amnesiac a poor ripoff of The Division Bell. :laughing:

Piss Me Off 08-09-2008 04:53 AM

This isn't in order is it?
I think Classic Rock Bores could well be in my top 5...

This thread should be put with the other iconic ones.
