    Phish. I'm sure they're quite talented but they've just never done it for me.

    Frank Sinatra - except for the juke box at the Alley Cat and immediately prior to Bloomingdales opening each day.
    Jim Morrison - The Doors are fine, it's Jim
    Led Zeppelin - over done
    Conway Twitty - good bye darlin'
    Jefferson Starship - built a city, destroyed an airplane
    The Bee Gees - no comment necessary

    this could go on

    Agree with that one.

    Functional. Nice for wedding receptions and similar "let's drink and ignore that we have nothing much in common" events. High School reunions. Generic DJ.

    I'm mostly down with this one. There are a few gems, but definitely over-rated.

    Here's the thing with The Dead and Phish. I enjoy them. But I don't expect others to really dig it. I get confused by those fans that think everyone would love it if ...

    ... they only heard that one song!
    ... they heard the liver versions!
    ... they had listened to the early stuff!

    etc.

    Most folks that like that kind of thing are going to come to it organically.

    Most of these I get, even if I don't agree on all.

    EXCEPT Sinatra.

    As far as The Doors go, they are hands down, my personal top pick for this thread. I'm not sure I have anyone to add after that mention.

    Metallica is the top of the list for me. Not counting rap and hiphop (those are not real music).

    Likewise on Fleetwood Mac. I can't stand them.

    We've gone this far and no Nickelback? I will volunteer their name.

    Live, and similar bands
    Phil Collins. Good musician but some of the songs.
    The Pretenders
    Bryan Adams. Some of the music isn't bad but whats that crazy thing he does with his guitar? (Want to set Ryan Adams off. Ask him to play Summer of '69.)
    A Tribe Called Quest

    RAP

    I will not volunteer Ryan Adams name. He's made some pretty good songs.

    I've been around these parts long enough to confidently say that this sentiment is almost unanimous at Trackforum. You are definitely not an outlier when it comes to not knowing the definition of Music around here.

    I need more than mercy, I didn't know you were such an avid fan of The Bee Gees.

    Rush Why didn't you like them? One of the most talented, truly intellectual bands of all time.

    Jimmy Buffet? Not the greatest singer, but pretty harmless and fun.

    This thread raises more questions than it answers. Some of the responses are truly baffling. How could someone dislike Gregorian chants or Frank Sinatra?

    If all you know of the Bee Gees is their SNF disco stuff, you'd have a point but there is much more to them.

    I would say about 95 to 99% of all commercial music produced since the turn of the millennium. The 21st century blows when it comes to music.

    i know more than the SNF stuff and appreciate the talent, originality, diversity and longevity. The musical style is just not my cup 'o tea.
