I don't like:

Led Zeppelin
The Who
Deep Purple

They have all made some great tracks and the tracks I like are damn good but I don't listen to them much and they have all put out a lot of mediocre songs and don't go posting a ton of vids to try and change my mind. At my age I really don't think my opinion will change and why should it?
I'm with you on the Who for sure. I've never been able to get into them. Mostly I think it's Roger Daltry's voice that turns me off.

Love all three of these bands and one of the main reasons for this are for their vocalists!

I agree with Vertigo in regards to Who's Next, song for song it's certainly not worthy of its reputation.

Eric Clapton. Aside from Sunshine of Your Love and Layla most of his other work is mediocre.

Any death metal... if at any point the singer does the thing where he sounds like a grizzly bear on heat, the track is no longer good in my eyes. I can't stand the Beatles either - too much of a boy band like One Direction and the Rolling Stones and Free were ultimately much better 60's bands to me.

There's quite a few bands that I'm not quite fond of: The White Stripes, Queens Of The Stone Age, The Tragically Hip, Nirvana, Monster Magnet, Andrew W.K., Type O Negative, Green Day, etc. There are more, but I cannot think of them at the moment.

Ministry are another metal band I can't seem to get into. I wouldn't really call them bad and I'm quite fond of heavy metal and industrial. Ministry seem to take the two but lack a special grip. Just don't see their appeal.

I can sort of see why someone might describe latter day Ministry as metal, but if you're going to understand the band you have to understand that that's not their point of origin. During their heyday (from the mid-80s to early 90s) they were constantly evolving stylistically. This, in brief form, is the evolution of Ministry during their essential years:

1984


1986


1988


1989

Didn't really take their progressive timeline into consideration so I get your point. My impression was mostly from Rio Grande Blood, Houses of the Molé, The Last Sucker, Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs (though I prefer this album better than the earlier mentions). Guess I'll give them another go starting from the first release. Hope you're right and it's worth it.

Sleeping with sirens, Asking alexandria, bring me horizon and most of the similar bands that are gaining so much popularity due to the punk goes series of albums (tons of covers by these guys basically taking good music, creating a slightly different riff, and than screaming the song like retards) I just can not get past the vocals, I will listen to some good death metal etc but I just cant take these normal and even good guitar riffs and instrumentals just destroyed by some emo kid screaming at the top of his lungs like an inmate becoming someones bitch.

Yeah, Psalm 69 and earlier are the the great albums, after that they started repeating thmselves and putting out albums that had only one or two good songs on them.
