Default Musical 180s

What artists or albums have you hated in the past but love today? Or albums that you loved that you can't stand today (I'm guessing this one is more common)? Post your turnarounds here.

I used to hate Deicide because at one point I found their music to be anathema to tasteful heavy music. And the singer branded an inverted cross onto his forehead which is silly as all hell.

But I quite like them now. Good death metal.

With the title I thought you were referring to music from the 180s B.C.

I didn't like Regina Spektor at first, but then something clicked after seeing a live performance on youtube, and I like her now.

I used to like The Who, but now I'm pretty much tired of them. I saw a interview of Pete and I thought he was the most annoying guitar player out there. I like Roger Daltrey as a singing but I don't care for the rest of the band.

I did a 180 so to speak with The Beatles twice. I like them no more than any other band. Then I did a 180 after an a "who is the greatest band in the world" type argument. I never let not liking to a band stop me from watching a doc about them. So I did another 180 after seeing a documentary of them. I think seeing a more personal side of them changed my mind about them and there music.

I always hated Incubus since the popularity of their song "Drive" in 2000-2001. I think it was because all the cool people I wanted to be friends with were obsessed with them (and Godsmack, for some reason), and I was resentful of that because I couldn't get "into" it. It was also strangely drug related. Kids who started to smoke weed in 7th grade were also obsessed with Incubus and I thought that was uncool.

Now that I'm an adult (sort of) I appreciate their music and I'm a huge fan of the track "Aqueous Transmission." I also dig "Love Hurts" and "Here In My Room."

Good band, actually. Would have said I hated them up until a couple of years ago.

When I was in high school through my early 20's and totally spun out on the prog rock of the day (Tull was my favorite), I totally hated bands like Kiss or AC/DC. I thought they were all flash pods and whiz-bang set to basic three chord rock.

As I grew I came to appreciate the fact that not everything needs to be convoluted time signatures with bombastic chops and extensive themes, that basic three chord rock, whether tight and clockwork like AC/DC or disheveled and trashy like some of the DIY that came along, could kick serious patootie. I accept and enjoy all these styles now, when well executed.
