First couple of albums had a raw southern garage rock sound, that's a very appealing sound. Back then they were everyone's pocket bands. Certainly mine around 2004, no one knew them. Now all them people like Sex On Fire.. But I can see why early KOL were critically acclaimed even though because of their last album I can't stand them.

Other candidates:
Tokio Hotel, Paramore, Kings of Leon, Paramore, The Misfits, Paramore and of course the obligatory Nickelback mention.
It's funny, from your posts I get a hint of distain towards Paramore...

Youth and Young Manhood and Aha Shake Heartbreak are both pretty good albums. Anything after that, then yeah, it was pretty mundane.

I'll give agreements to Enter Shikari - that was precious minutes of my life that I'll never get back. And the Script almost make me start twitching with anoyance. Ugh, and seeing as it's on my flatmate's radio right now, The Feeling.

This thread annoys me, and it seems to me most people are putting down some bands simply because it's cool to hate them. I mean, I don't hate many bands at all. Most of them are listenable. I can listen to Nickelback - I don't think they're very good but I don't writhe in pain when they are played. I also love Blink-182, who are getting a lot of hate on this thread, and I also like Green Day. Generic does not equal bad, nor does popular.

I actually agree with you a bit.

Except that. They really do suck.

No but they're usually the main one or two aspects as to why they are bad.

Popularity and genericness doesn't make a band bad, but like said it's often the main reason. There are plenty of ordinary sounding bands that are great.

Also, Paramore's debut album is listenable. Sort of. The first couple songs and the last few are OK, but the middle's pretty trash. But I haven't listened to it since 2008, so yeah.

Generic means bland, middle of the road, dull. Which can be quite easily make for bad listening.

Generic means common.
