    No matter how legendary they may be considered, these guys with their bullshit poetry, limp guitar sound, and cheesy organ just never did it for me. I fuckin' hate them. Always have, always will.

    I love the doors, my mind cannot fathom how you can't like them, but to each their own.

    So many, but as far as mega-bands, Bon Jovi. Dentist office rock, acting like bad boys.

    It all just .... eludes me completely.

    I used to like them. Not anymore though. I guess you can say they didn't "Hold up". You have to give them props for only having 3 people in the band who played instruments.

    Bon Douchie, Guns & Douches and Motley Douche represent my unholy trio of late 80's shit rock bands.


    Beyond that though, there are many bands that I can unreservedly recognize as being very talented, but who just never did anything for me personally. Groups like Steely Dan, The Steve Miller Band and even the Beatles have never seen penny one from my record purchases.

    Great thread. I actually like some material by each band so far but have to agree I don't get why some of them have a fanatical base.

    I would add William Joel to the list. I like some songs; but others are schmalz cubed. Must be a Jersey thing cause I just don't get some of the feather tickling my ass music of that guy.

    Led Zeppelin, I really couldn't give a shit about them. I like two or three of their songs, but the rest is bland, boring, soulless shit.

    The fact that they stole so much of their material from musicians who were too poor to fight their lawyers, makes them all the more hateable.
