Choke on a dick if you don’t love Back in Black.

I mean it's cool but it doesn't have that same rough n ready griminess of earlier AC/DC. It also doesn't help that I've heard half the album on the radio fifty million times and in a hundred corny movies. "Shoot to Thrill" is a legitimately great song but I don't ever need to hear it again.

Overplaying does something to your perception of a song. I can't tell if Enter Sandman is good anymore. I just don't want to hear it.

Same. It used to be my absolute favorite song when I was like 13 but now it's completely meaningless to me. I can't even tell if I like it or loath it but I definitely want to skip it whenever I hear it. Like, I'm done with you, at least get to "Where Ever I May Roam" which still has some legs for me.

I listened to the whole album a while ago and it was the first time in years. Was surprised by how much I could still enjoy some tracks on it, but there's also some that I'm just done with. Sad But True is not a song I think I need to hear again. Nothing Else Matters also does very little for me now.

Last time I listened to The Black Album I snapped it in half and posted before and after pictures on the forum.

For real?
I sadly wasn't around at the time if it really happened.

If I had to snap one, it would be Death Magnetic.

That’s the opposite of generic.

Anyone who voted generic doesn’t understand what they brought to the party originally

Or they don’t know what generic means - formulaic does not mean generic
I never said they were generic. I said they were boring.

I hate AC/DC for no other reason cause, when I was kid, the bullies in my neighborhood would walk the streets singing "Big Balls." It was like a scene straight out of Clockwork Orange.

Back in Black is perhaps the only AC/DC song I can tolerate.
