You can't friggin take.

There are so many, I don't want to list them all, but I'll start with John Mayer. He sounds like he went to Target and bought the biggest bag of cotton balls available, crammed them into his mouth and started "singing"..... :pukeface: Terrible.

Rush. Their fans seem to be rabid as all hell, but I just don't get why people like them.

Bieber, nikki minaj, lady gaga, katy perry... Pretty much every modern pop artist nowadays.

Anyone whose primary source of beat, rhythm, etc. is sampled from music previously released by another artist.
Anyone who relies on someone else outside of their band or group to write their music.
Anyone whose first song released was a cover or rise to popularity came as the result of a cover (Exception: The Black Crowes).

Well, I dislike pretty much all pop music, most "alternative," all country, and most R&B/hip-hop. But because I just tend to avoid that kind of music, I never know what artists are popular and worth mention.

But I will absolutely agree with Dave Matthews. Everything about him and his music is just awful.

I'm with Vols, although I'll add that I can't stand most rock either. It'd be easier to list the popular artists that I can stand. I really just don't like most music at all.

Yeah, I'm a super narrow niche guy. All the music I listen to has to involve a downtuned 7-string guitar, a 2nd drummer or drum machine, and originate in a valley near Uppsala, Sweden.

I don't like John Mayer's pop songs, but he is an excellent Blues guitarist and very reverential of Blues standards.

Case in point - takes Jimi's song, does it in Jimi's style, and makes it his own. Granted, half of his audience leaves
to powder their nose when he breaks out one of these songs, but they wouldn't appreciate it anyway.

I need to add Bruce Springsteen to the list.

When his stuff comes on, my finger is headed to the change button.

John Mayer is an incredible guitarist but I hate all of his music for the most part. It's amazing just watching how much fun he is having playing the hell out of his guitar.

Can't stand Bruno Mars, all country music, R&B for the most part, Lady Gaga, anything made by the guy who produced Friday and that Thanksgiving song, and Nickelback.

He makes shitty music and he's a douche bag but he can shred. It's not debatable.

Says the hip hop producer, that admittedly hates music. If he shreds then Eminem is a shredmeister.

No, Eminem can't shred. I don't think he can even play a lick.

Yes, Maroon 5 is my #1 popular band that I can't stand. I'll throw Nickelback in there too... if you want to even call them popular anymore. I don't know if they even exist at this point.

Van Halen, ACDC, and Ozzy. Maybe its just because my local rock station still plays them like they are still relevant, but I cannot stand them when they come on the radio. So overplayed..

Rush sucks too.

Eminem is the best rap artist of all time.

Speaking of shredding, and correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like its still the same guys that we associate with shredding are still "the" guys. There's nobody new on the scene. Anytime there's something on about guitar playing its either Slash, Satriani, Clapton, Vai, Santana or some other 70's-80's guitar guru. No wonder the young people don't listen to it, its shit their dad's listen to.

By the way f*ck Moron 5, Coldplay, Lil Wayne, One Direction, Foo Fighters and that ga damned Gangnam Style mofo.

There was a point when Eminem was probably the best rapper in the world. Or at least top 2-3.

You can blame this on the hip hop, sampling video game generation. People are too lazy to actually pick up an instrument and have the dicipline to takes to become a master.

The sad thing is, there are probably thousands out there that have the ability but don't even realize it because it is so much easier to sample and scratch rather than actually develope talent.

Sampling and scratching are talents that require a different skill set than playing a string or wind instrument. They're actually much more similar to playing the drums.

Look DUNCE, I actually teach drums and guitar. And THESE are the things my young students say to me, this is not the way I feel, but it comes from their mouths. Thank gawd at least they have enough energy and smarts to keep music moving forward.

The Marshall Mathers LP stands up in terms of brilliance and importance as much as any Robert Johnson, Stones, Patti Smith, G n R, Bowie, Motown, etc LP. It's genius and HUGELY important.

Wow. Great counter argument. You know absolutely nothing about sampling or scratching. I'm an idiot and clearly you're a genius.

Not only was the album a critically acclaimed masterpiece and hugely influential (although some [see: me] would argue negatively) on the future of music, but between Infinite, Slim Shady & Marshall Mathers, even the Eminem Show, Em was one of the most, if not the most, skilled rappers & lyricists in the game. He was rapping circles around just about everybody between 98 & 02 or 03.

I understand your pining for the good ol' days, but its called musical evolution and I'm sorry it makes you sad :cry:


But he cant even pine for the good ol' days. I watched a doc this week about classical drummers from the 30's and 40's, it's LIGHTYEARS beyond what any rock or Largent currently does with drums. Light years in skill and complexity.

Of course, I'm not a douchebag, and assume the difference is simply because of Largent's skill-set, not evolving tastes in music. But, drummers from the 30's and 40's big band eras would FOR SURE think Largent's lil pounding to Cars songs as corny and trite.

Haha me comparing scratching to drumming pissed him off so bad.

The thing is, I don't even entirely disagree with some of what he's saying, but his inability to recognize where he's misinformed, ignorant and basically talking out of his rear end makes him look like a complete jackass. The rear end of a jackass even.

The Marshall Mathers LP stands up in terms of brilliance and importance as much as any Robert Johnson, Stones, Patti Smith, G n R, Bowie, Motown, etc LP. It's genius and HUGELY important.


Not only was the album a critically acclaimed masterpiece and hugely influential (although some [see: me] would argue negatively) on the future of music, but between Infinite, Slim Shady & Marshall Mathers, even the Eminem Show, Em was one of the most, if not the most, skilled rappers & lyricists in the game. He was rapping circles around just about everybody between 98 & 02 or 03.


But, but, Zeb, music has NO PLACE for storytellers. No one appreciates Dylan, Cash, Williams Sr, Merle for their stories. They love them for their musical insturment prowess. I mean, no way the aforementioned would be rappers if they came out today, no WAY. The message was secondary to their insturment work.

Oh, wait...?

Nobody's a musician unless they use drumsticks.

Of course Rob can't admit when he is wrong. That is part of his charm.

Back to white rappers. For you kids out there who missed them, here are the greatest:



They didn't even hit an artistic peak with their commercial successes. That came with, in my opinion, Paul's Boutique, one of the greatest
albums of all time.
