I used to not be able to stand The Darkness, but now I can't get enough of their cheesy high pitched glorious pop-glam-rock.

I used to hate Metal Machine Music, it was just a constant flow of confrontational noise that didn't agree with me. Then when I began getting into noise rock and the like, I moved on to artists like Merzbow, Whitehouse, and Maurizio Bianchi and really liked them. I dug the style so much that I began to start making some noise music.

One day on the hunt for some new tunes I found MMM on a best noise albums list and when I listened to it, I thought to myself "this is almost like something I would do" and from that point on I really dug the album.

I echo Frownland's comments about Beefheart - I heard Trout Mask Replica in my mid-teens and thought it was terrible. I gradually got into it over time, prompted by the constant namedropping of Beefheart by the post-punk bands I loved at the time. But I didn't listen to the record for ages after first hearing it, and told others it was the worst music I'd ever heard before I revisited it.

That Beefheart guy's my favourite musician of all time, now.

Maybe ill get there someday but I have only made it to about minute 10 on MMM. Made it all the way through trout mask but it was painful and I have never re-lived that nightmare.

First of all, in sincerity, and in general, drugs make all music sound better.

Secondly, as a kid I loved 'Technique' by New Order.
Like, to a ridiculous degree.

Now?


Mmmmm...

no


PS> great question.
Thank God I'm a newb and don't care too much what people think about me.
I also liked New Kids on the Block ...when I was like 8.

Edit: 'liked' not 'like' ....for heaven's sake.

This is copied directly from the irrational hatred thread, but it really belongs here.

When I was 17-27 years old, I loooooved Kansas. Loved 'em. Then, starting in the mid 80's I started exploring other music, esp. Classical. Then, as I revisited the progressive rock of my youth, most of it held up well but Kansas did not, there was/is a cake & ice cream sappy ubersugarry element to their music (albeit extremely well performed) that just didn't work for me at all once I got into my 40's.

I recently revisited them in plug and enjoyed the parts that were good (mainly instrumental proficiency) but cringed at the candy-coated aspect. It was a short visit over the past week, I'm done with it now. Again.

I've disliked metal and electronic music at one point or another, and there's not a lot of music I liked then that I dislike now. Even the artists I generally dislike, like Kid Rock or Limp Bizkit, had some good songs that I still listen to today.

I'm pretty open to most genres. but I just can't get into electronic music. Which is weird, because old video game music sounds fine to me.(Not that I would really sit down and listen to it, but it's nice in the background). I hope that someday I'll learn to appriciate some electronic music, it's a pretty broad genre. There must be something in there I like.

What do you people even mean by "electronic" music? Do you even realize how vast that genre is? Do you mean you simply don't enjoy music that uses synths and sounds made by a computer in general?
