I don't listen to them much anymore, but they were f****** great live I will always remember seeing them do not sleeping around live as one of my best concert highlights.

This one I'm with you on.

One of the funniest pre-concert experiences I've ever had was lining up outside of First Avenue for Sisters of Mercy, the same night phish was playing at the Target Center. The contrast between the two bands fans was very comical

If you meant Oingo Boingo you are missing out on a great band. And live, they were more fun then sex with twins.



Cool but you can't blame me it is a terrible name.


Well... it's all in your perspective. The original band name of The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo was a terrible name...I think shortening it to Oingo Boingo was a good move actually.

New Direction and for that matter Menudo New Kids on the Block NSYNC and all the boy bands in between. I've never knowingly heard a thing by them.

I can tell I will hate Slipknot by their fans. Ditto Insane Clown Posse. Pretty sure I've never heard and would not like Korn.

I had to work for Bill Graham Presents security at both Dave Matthews Band and Primus shows at the Greek so I've heard stuff by them or both of them would be on there probably. Certainly I absolutely detest their fans who were the most idiotic people I've ever encountered at concerts from a security perspective. Although the folks from Primus were so nice to me after the show when they heard what I had been through in dealing with shitty behaviour from their fans, that I can't hate the band itself, Primus and their merch manager and concert reps were all nice humans.

I hate Air Supply and would like to have their songs retroactively removed from my mind. They were my sister's favorite band and she inflicted them on me like torture.

From the acts listed so far, I'd defend Oingo Boingo, Radiohead and most of Mogwai...(And those two songs I've heard from Ned's Atomic Dustbin weren't entirely horrible...)

I'll check out those tracks some time. Angry Samoans are one of my favorite bands so I don't mind half-assed attitude & puerile humor.

I've never been a Radiohead hater - saw 'em open for R.E.M. once - but I just lost interest after Amnesiac. Not sure why, really. Too many other options would be my best guess. And I'm not a big post-rock guy, but that Mogwai debut is beautiful at 2 A.M.

I think they've done their best work from Amnesiac onwards - or, at least, just exchanging great with mediocre. In Rainbows is my favorite of theirs, followed by A Moon Shaped Pool. Then again, I've never been a die-hard fan either.

Tiffany, Britney Spears, Debbie Gibson, and teen girl bands like Spice Girls, Destiny's Child etc...
Apparently they are so noxious the spam filter prevents me even speaking of them by name in any large grouping.

At some point I heard I Think We're Alone Now so whichever recorded that one can come off the list, but honesty I don't know which of those it was nor do I care. DD subjected me to one of those acts in the BCB cup.

But suffice to say that music of that ilk which has been designed and produced to capitalize on the sex appeal of teen girls really doesn't interest me at all the same is true for all the Japanese idol bands...

Well fine so I guess I've heard Tiffany and she's off the list of acts I have never heard but am pretty sure they are terrible....she can go on the list of acts I've heard but didn't really need to in order to decide I hated them. The cup made me hear Kelis this year too so she's on the list with Tiffany. I swear to God the BCB cup has it's definite downside.

I do not ever deliberately listen to top 40 or R&B Dance tracks. So anything modern could go on the list, from Billboard's Hot 100 this week, I'd heard nothing, but I've heard these people before so they don't count:
Train
Rihanna
Katy Perry
Taylor Swift
Bruno Mars
Akon

That song was on the radio constantly when I was a kid. Can't say I minded since I was like 8 or something but that's the only Tiffany song I can recall hearing. I do remember a couple of my cousins being obsessed with N.K.O.T.B and being forced to listen to their cassette at some family gathering. I might have even liked it...

8-) It never played on my radio because MY radio as a teenager was permaset to 91x. I only changed the dial when we were up in LA and the signal went wonky...then I'd tune to KROQ. Everywhere else I just listened to my walkman.

Childish Gambino is Donald Glover's musical alter ego. Enjoyable, for the most part. He obviously likes Prince a great deal.

Snow Patrol

I have seen Paw Patrol. Same gist?
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

I like that Phish song!



They're a band I suspect I would like - I believe some consider them to have taken over the jamming band role from the Grateful Dead, but I haven't yet got around to investigating - so much of the Dead (& the Allman's) to explore. Must get around to them.

I still haven't heard A Winged Victory For The Sullen, and I'm still pretty sure that they are fucking awful.
