    Basically all of em really

    Its worth remembering though that a lot of the time the hype is not of the bands making

    It's not always about disliking a band either. I don't mind Joy Division and have a few albums. They were an ok doom laden punk band, but they seem to have a god like genius status....i thought they were far better when they became New Order.

    Oooh yeah, The National are rubbish.

    Bjork is neither a band or rubbish, **** off Daimo

    Arctic Monkeys are the worst. They're like the new Oasis. Can't stand either.

    I can't really think of anything that boils my piss more than Oasis.

    This new wave of skinny jean wearing angry rap is pretty annoying. I saw the first 10 seconds of Danny Brown at beacons last year and it made me want to end everything, but I guess that's down to taste.

    Who else? Guns and Roses and Nickleback are bands I don't like.

    This thread is gonna go around in circles. It's all subjective etc. etc.

    As above, it's too subjective to make a strong point really. But I'd agree with Mumford and The Jam. Radiohead and The Smiths are indisputably genius.


    This isn't a fair comparison, even if you don't like Arctic Monkeys. At least they're progressing with every album, whereas Oasis were stagnant for most of their lifespan. I've never really understood the hate for Oasis though, but that's a different topic.

    Yes, I don't "get" people who don't "get" The Smiths. The Jam (and The Clash) are worthy mentions.

    Foo Fighters are overrated. Not saying i don't like them, some of their tunes are good, but vastly overrated for what they do.

    Don't you need to be rated in the first place, to be overrated?
