There's a few for me. Don't know what it is. Not trying to bash their fans... I just never liked them.

The Replacements
The Clash
Husker Du (except for "New Day Rising" & some tunes offa "Children's Crusade")
The Who ("Live at Leeds" is all I ever spin & only rarely)
Posted: Mar 13, 2007 1:00 pm
 
I agree with your list. First three I liked for a while in high school; the Who had plenty good stuff throughout the first decade or so, though. Not in the same league as the Kinks or Stones.

Thin Lizzy.

Alarm Clocks

Not really sure I'm digging the Mary Weiss too much, either. No offense.
Glad she's come back. Glad she picked some good people to jam with.
Kind of used to somebody else doing those songs.
Maybe, if I get the record, it'll change my mind, but from what I've heard so far...
It's probably just me.

Carbonas

They're good, but "Best Punk Band in the US"? Uh, send me to another country then, please. (insert Iraq joke here)
Posted: Mar 13, 2007 2:33 pm
 
In my mind the Clash were the greatest Rock 'n' Roll group of all time.
Posted: Mar 13, 2007 2:33 pm
 
The White Stripes
The Horrors (UK)
The Clash (Mick Jones is a bit weird, but Strummer and Simonon were nice enuff fellas when I met 'em, but can't really see why peeps go nuts for 'em)
Grateful Dead
Led Zeppelin


Replacements are a weird one - a good pal bought me that "All For Nothing..." comp a few years back and I couldn't get past the gawdawful 80s production, but eventually started digging SOME of their stuff. Scarfed up cheap copies of Let It Be, Tim and Pleased To Meet Me on vinyl, and there's some great stuff on each one, if you can excuse the shitty sound (those drums, argh!), and dug the Granpaboy stuff (especially Mono), but recently bought Hootenanny, which I think just sucks ass! My fave Replacements stuff is:

Can't Hardly Wait
Alex Chilton
Nightclub Jitters
Skyway
Here Comes A Regular
Satellite
Androgynous
Tommy Gets His Tonsils Out
Till We're Nude
All He Wants To Do Is Fish
Answering Machine
I Don't Know
Portland
I Will Dare
Sixteen Blue

... and possibly a coupla others...

Carbonas..."Best Punk Band in the US"

I love 'em, but I don't know of anyone making that assertion.
Posted: Mar 13, 2007 2:35 pm
 
... including Date To Church, which to me seems sorta like an (unreleased at the time) idiot cousin to The Oblivians' gospel set, being that it was recorded by Dickinson at Ardent n'all...

I would contend that you just don't like the Replacements then. Probably their best all-around/most representative record (tho I'd go with 'Sorry, Ma...' every time).
Posted: Mar 13, 2007 2:41 pm
 
Ick, need to give it another listen, I know, but it's that 'swooshing' guitar sound on Within Your Reach which really nearly made me puke - have heard that Sorry, Ma is kool...

I like most of all of those bands, besides the obvious Greatful Dead, Right Said Fred...and so on. Replacements, Sweet, Slayed, Black Lips, Carbonas, Alarm Clocks...I like'em all. Mary Weiss....haven't seen her live, not too crazy about what I've heard, but I don't think it awful. Just way over hyped and sick of hearing about her. Clash, if I could go the rest of my life without ever hearing them again I would be happy. But I will probably here them in some bar with in the next day or two.

What, you didn't like it when they showed you their bare asses at the end of the set?

I'm up, you're out.
Posted: Mar 13, 2007 6:03 pm
 
besides the obvious Greatful Dead,


I'm gonna go ahead and say it: there are some great Grateful Dead songs. Not many, but they exist. And I think that Warren Zevon was a GREAT songwriter, just not the best singer/performer.


As far as "hip" bands I never got:

The Clash and the Replacements are the ones that get me into the most arguments.

Hardcore is a different animal, though - very much about the youthfull angry hormonal rush. If you were 15, you'd probably still love that shit.

I agree with most of these bands, but Black Sabbath??? Fuck that shit! I understand not liking Sweet, but thankfully I was not afflicted.

Bill does not like the Replacements AT ALL and having a former boyfriend that was FUCKING OBSESSED with them i can say there are probably 4 songs that I'd give a "yeah, that's a real good song" to. I also had to sit though THREE, count them THREE nights of Paul Westerberg boring ass solo shows.
Posted: Mar 13, 2007 8:47 pm
 
I like the Replacements' "Sorry Ma..." OK, but it sounds like a totally different band than the other stuff....but yeah - overall...nothing doing for me...
Posted: Mar 13, 2007 8:49 pm
 
The Who.

fuck all the Keith Moon stories - they were just a great pop band... even up to the overblown, overplayed "Who's Next"... "Who Sells Out" is my personal fave, though....

I love all the westcoast hardcore standards like Circle Jerks, Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, etc. but I just never saw what the big deal was about Minor Threat. I guess I can't get past the goofy "straight edge" thing. And I hate all the tough guy jock hardcore stuff.
Posted: Mar 13, 2007 8:52 pm
 
Who da fuck don't like The Who? Only people I know that don't like them have pretty much only heard the hits

i don't love the who, but i do love keith moon. drummers like that--fucking crazy--are my absolute favorites.

hardcore makes me want to kick something--love it!

only good clash records are the first one and black market clash 10".

replacements get TIRED after a while.

how can you not like BLACK SABBATH? that shit puts hair on your chest.

if you don't like neil young or thin lizzy, you're just looney.
Posted: Mar 13, 2007 9:02 pm
 
i think that hardcore alienated plenty of young women.
it was a rough gig, whoever you saw. testosterone anger and fury everywhere... on the stage, on the floor next to you... you could get hurt (in a bad way) just walking into a hardcore gig
and i didn't like the music; i still don't
Posted: Mar 13, 2007 9:04 pm
 
i could never, ever sit down and listen to a hardcore record, but i sure do love watching it.

Who da fuck don't like The Who?

Being a heretic is kind of the point of this thread. If I have to listen to all the deep album cuts to appreciate a band, fug em'. Not worth my time. And I don't like Maximum R&B, either.

it's probably true for others too but it's weird when a band has ispired you to the point that it made you pick up a guitar or drums or whatever but to other people its fingernails on a chalkboard or whatever... what a country.
Posted: Mar 13, 2007 9:18 pm
 
If you think that you do not like the Clash, then you owe it to yourself to listen to their live recordings from 1976. I could speak about the Clash forever, but I'll leave it where it is.
Posted: Mar 13, 2007 9:24 pm
 
A lot of punks don't like The Clash. I accepted it long ago.

Now, The Dictators, I don't get that one. I mean, I understand WHY people like them, but it just sounds like baloney to me. Guess I'm not a real American.

Now, comes the deluge....

I think half of the fun of hating The Clash is that some people just hyperventilate over the fact that not everyone buys into their political posturing and not everyone thinks they are the greatest band ever. The Clash are The Beatles of punk in that sense.

Now, The Dictators, I don't get that one. I mean, I understand WHY people like them, but it just sounds like baloney to me. Guess I'm not a real American.
A bunch of ugly, smartass, scumbag dudes with proto-punk tunes about hamburgers, getting drunk, and girls. That speaks to me, man! What's not to love?!?

that's fucking great. It was The Who for me, too, that launched me into a whole 'nother musical realm I never thought I'd ever see or rather, just didn't even think about. When I was 19, I was was shown The Kids are Alright and my mind was fucking blown. I love reminiscing about it!

I can't even consider about half their catalogue when thinkng about why their music means so much to me...adn I havne't listened to a Who album in years either, but they'll always hold a special spot.

and I just pulled out my "I'm a Boy" poster and hung it back up!

I love "The Replacements STINK" and not much else by them. Clash has some great songs and a whole lotta misfires. I went thru a love/hate thing w/The Who a few years back but now i love 'em again.

Hardcore is underrrated,mostly because even the best bands stuck around too long after they lost whatever they had that made 'em good. BJoe is absolutely right about DRI,"Dealing With It" is their "Exile On Main Street",it's all downhill from there.

I guess if there's two bands out there i've never really gotten into it would have to be The Sex Pistols,who also had some great songs and misfires (and the publicity/chaos they brough w/them was the utmost in genius fo sho),but i'll probably N*E*V*E*R like Patti Smith under any circumstances.
Posted: Mar 13, 2007 10:30 pm
 
Man, this thread is bring to mind so many for me!

Not that I hate these bands, but rather, don't care. I don't own a single record by the following:

Dictators
Neil Young
The Band
Patti Smith
Black Sabbath
Kraftwerk
X
Most classic rock and "metal"



Also- I only own the first Who record and one Beatles record (I think it's their second?) and one Bob Dylan record.

i've said this before, but hardcore/punk back in my high school days scared the HELL out of me. just like you say, theresa: everybody got hurt. it was scary and it was florida. a lot of kids had nothing but bad homes and angst. i tried to "participate" once--you know, get in the pit--and it was dumb. the pit was not a nice place for a girl in '85-'86.

so that was my initiation into hardcore/punk rock. it really blew my mind--fast forward a decade--to date a rich doctor's son who had a huge record collection--all the punk rock put out--and realize that punk rock didn't always stem from poverty, anger and broken homes.

florida's a tough place.

I Don't Wanna Go Out / Hate City / Caberet Roll / Batman / Aussie X kicked so much ass and they were the primary contemporary influence on feedtime, one of the best bands to ever pop up over there. The other X has a few good songs, one great recorded performance ("We're Desperate") and lots of stiff-sounding crud.

I don't get the Turpentine Bros either, good current band call, Crucial Douche! As for hardcore, yer basically dumb if you don't dig early Die Kreuzen, no exeptions. Def Jam wanted them (and not Slayer) to be their first "white" signing, but they wanted to keep it reeeal and declined. Man. Their first LP is a masterpiece.

Also don't get current stuff like the Manikins and Locomotions & their Rip Offy Europunk ilk. Not terrible, just totally unmemorable. And most current hardcore championed by people like Matt Coppens - bo-ring. Though I do like the Regulations & a few other current hardcores (Darvocets are fun, Formeldehyde Junkies, etc.).

it really blew my mind--fast forward a decade--to date a rich doctor's son who had a huge record collection--all the punk rock put out--and realize that punk rock didn't always stem from poverty, anger and broken homes.

that's for sure..... southern california and FLA have so much in common beyond the perpetual sunshine! there was a huge rift.... spoken and unspoken in the 70s LA punk days between the hollywood/west side punks and the south bay (home of hardcore) punks. then there was orange county - --- east LA had its own thing too, but no one hated on them.

west siders and orange county kids were middle class, upper middle class, and rich kids.

alice bag (a latina, for those who don't know) always like to say that it didn't matter if you were rich or poor, though -- that there was always something that would make you feel marginalized. only she was rather eloquent about it. she would talk about how hollywood punks took the piss out of glamorous hollywood with the way they dressed.

just because a lot of punk rock sentiment in the UK was born out of a "life on the dole; ain't going nowhere" mentality doesn't mean a lot of those folks weren't middle class either.... joe strummer...middle class.

The Replacements
The Clash
Husker Du (except for "New Day Rising" & some tunes offa "Children's Crusade")
The Who ("Live at Leeds" is all I ever spin & only rarely)

All my favorites. For a long time it was extremely unhip to like the Clash. The Clash live esp. from 79-81 were a completely different animal than in the studio, untouchable then or now.


See also in the 1st thread that I'm not saying this to diss the fans... I just never really got into them. Part of The Replacements thing was a group of guys I knew that played "Dope Smokin' Moron" non-stop & I didn't think it was much of a jam anyways let alone 40 consecutive times.

I see your Fugazi and raise you Nation Of Ulysses

The only Fugazi I really liked was "Steady Diet of Nothing." The only NOU I really like is "13 Point Program To Destroy America" & I fuckin' love that record. "Plays Pretty for Baby" is nowhere close to it.

you know... sometimes a band's fans make me backlash against the band.
a certain stadium-playing artist (ie: popular w/ the masses) who i worked with during one of those never-ending stadium tours; easy for me to block out the music that did nothing for me... but the fans.... god help them

The Who Sell Out is one of my favorite records and I can't think of why anyone wouldn't like it. Title proves those guys could predict their own future too.

I appologize, but I don't like the Leather Uppers. I want to. They are funny and sexy and dumb. I should love it. But I think it sounds like crap and they should get a bass player.

Leather Uppers I dont get either.
I cant believe someone could dislike slade. Slayed is probably the record I go back to most, followed closely by Go Gilr Crazy. Not liking the Dictators is like hating fun

If you don't like Slade, you're not an American, even though they weren't American, and even though I'm not at all authorized to tell anyone whether or not they're American. Faggots.

For the Who, my favourites are the 1965-1967 stuff and the earliest stuff(High Numbers).
Keith Moon is probably one of the all time most exciting drummers.

Over 125 posts and I'm the first person to say The Pogues. There are plenty of bands that people rave about who I could take or leave, but The Pogues are a band I actively dislike.

I'm kinda surprised no one has said Tom Waits.
Posted: Mar 15, 2007 6:33 pm
 
Harlan T Bobo and Leather Uppers are the only releases in the Goner catalogue I have no use for. While that's a great track record, I'd still like to understand how the label that's released Guitar Wolf and the Hipshakes could go for those two. Eric, you have some 'spaining to do! I don't get the Pogues, either, and the Nipple Erectors were OK at best.

agreed. if you watch some of the 70's live footage, he's playing shit that I can't even comprehend... totally awesome drummer - too bad his legend overshadows his legacy for most....

And I think "Gabrielle" by the Nips is a rad pop song, and the obvious template for at least TWO bigs hit by big bands 10-15 years down the line.

If "16 Shells from a 30 ought six" or "Going Out West" or "Whistlin' Past The Graveyard" or "The Piano Has Been Drinking" were instrumentals, I would still think they are great.

I never cared much for/understood The Pogues, but Cowtown man-about-town Craig Regala & Jim Weber have a story about them drinking Larry's completely out of Rolling Rock, if not beer altogether & for that, they've earned my undying respect, even if I never own a record by them.

I've never liked Led Zep or Sabbath. And I can't get into Black Lips or the Dirtbombs.

10-12 good waits songs; plus old pal ralph carney makes me laugh when he plays with him

pogues are pussies compared to the faces a band i think they try to emulate, at least live and in shaggy, what the hell spirit
Posted: Mar 15, 2007 10:59 pm
 
ha! i was just typing a funny drinking story about the faces when i lost my connection and had to re-boot.

sorta like mullet's recalling of jim weber & craig regala's pogues story.... my readers digest version of a ronnie wood story:

we were up burning the midnight oil so that he could deliver parts of his book ("the works" from the 1980s... this is how long ago this happened) to his editor. he promised to stay in the house and finish... he drank all teh vodka, and figured he'd stick w/ clear liquor; drank all the gin (at this point, his brother in law bowed out of the drinking) and then all the white rum.

he never ever seemed drunk... he never got sick and his painting/drawing skills did not suffer at all because of the booze.
Posted: Mar 15, 2007 10:59 pm
 
I really like the Nips/Nipple Erectors and I really respect the Pogues but have no need to ever, ever hear one of their songs again.

There are a lot of current bands that are just fine by me but that people go totally apeshit over. It's like the audience is desperate for something to devote itself toward.

Then again, there are the Dirtbombs who just annoy me.

Being a 15 year old male at some point is required. I loved them when I was 15 but when I was 16, I thought they were just dumb.

the industry counts on that. i'm willing to bet that the led zeppelin and black sabbath catalog is a perrennial sales bonanza based on the never-ending supply of 15 year old males

Horndogfest= great Ultraglide=life changing. Everything else they put out is real iffy. And there can't be a good Police album unless Sting isn't on it (and he is).
Posted: Mar 17, 2007 12:47 am
 
I actually wasn't tooooo into Horndog Fest. I mean, there were CUTS, but also there wasn't. Ultraglide I think is their best record (and I think it's pretty fucking great), and I like a lot of their singles.
Posted: Mar 17, 2007 2:21 am
 
when they played at Berbattis in 2001 or 2002 with the two guitars it was one of the best shows I have ever seen. The next three were pretty boring except the eno cover which ruled.
Posted: Mar 17, 2007 2:23 am

Thats how I felt. I'm telling you! Outlandos D'Amour IS a good album. And I hate Sting. He should be getting old and shutting up, but is instead getting younger and younger. Its freaking me out.

Slint

Yeah, that's a great one. The 1st LP on Jennifer Hartman is really good, but "Spiderland" definately never did anything for. It kinda drew my ire for all the utter crap bands it spawned, but I definately can't blame Slint for that.
Posted: Mar 17, 2007 9:52 pm
 
Slint are the worst! Their ripoff bands are even worse than the worst! They should just fulfill their destiny of being used to sniff out IED's in Baghdad instead of playing their souless crap music. Good thing i'm not the Prez...

A bunch of ugly, smartass, scumbag dudes with proto-punk tunes about hamburgers, getting drunk, and girls. That speaks to me, man! What's not to love?!?

The Nips have a handful of cool songs but most of their shit is pretty meh. It's just there.

I really liked those Blank Its single but the LP is just alright...I never ever play it. Are they even still a band? Cause they really dropped the ball after the singles.

Okay, I retract my not understanding of how someone could think they're "OK at best". I was drunk and listening to 'em when I posted that and got a little excited. Something about 'em just really does it for me, I guess. "Ghost Town" is a great song.
