    Daaaaammmmmnnnn!

    Srsly though it’s true. Music, much like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. That said, some acts/people need to be recognized for their talent/looks regardless of your level of attraction to them.

    I wouldn't buy a Radiohead album or go to their shows but I get how influential and talented they are.

    Neil Young:
    Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
    After the Gold Rush
    On the Beach
    Comes a Time
    Rust Never Sleeps
    Mirror Ball
    Are You Passionate?
    Living with War
    Live at the Fillmore East
    Live at Massey Hall 1971

    Bob Dylan:

    Every album from 1962 to 1979
    My favourite Neil Young songs:
    Heart of Gold
    Helpless
    Downtown

    Actually theres way more just cant think of them right now, I like most of them.

    Just the opposite for me. What a fun live act, but it doesn't do it for me musically.

    Though I don't know if I would go out of my way and pay just to see them. But they could play every festival and I would always try to see them.

    Did you really hear people talking about how great their albums were? Or how great their shows were?

    There are one or two people around here who rave about their albums. There are about a hundred who rave about their show.

    saw MGMT at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco and they were hot hot hot.
    They have a really glam sound like early Bowie, plus the opener was Yeasayer....another awesome band. Give 'em another try.....if you like

    I don't get this comment at all. For me, Ghostland's rambunctious crowd pleasing party of a live show makes their albums seem flat and somewhat underwhelming by comparison.

    Geez, after reading most of the posts here, this thread should be re-titled as "Let's see how many people you offend with your dislikes in music."

    Unhappy Re: What bands does everyone rave about that you can't stand?

    I know I'm going to get a lot of crap for this, but I can't stand Radiohead. The music is alright, it's just that Thom Yorke's voice makes me want slit my wrists and insert sleeping pills into the gaping wounds. It's so frickin' depressing. Anyone out there agree?

    On a similar note...Pink Floyd.

    I love Gogol's albums. Super Taranta really isn't anywhere near as good as Gypsy Punks, but it is still great.

    However, Gogol live is far greater then any of thier albums.

    Trust me. MUCH better then the pirate show.

    Speaking as a former self-professed hater of Radiohead, it's not the bands music... It's their obnoxious fanboys/fangirls... >>;;;

    Nobody raves about Panic at the Disco except for 14-17 year old boys and girls...

    Sometimes I wish I had never discovered their demo before the video and the hype took hold... Ugh.

    I'm sorry to hear that. It was off the top of my head, a buddy's wife raved about them once and I wanted to slap the TRL right out of her, but alas I had to respect my buddy's choice of trim.

    I've said it before, but Bob Dylan (singer) is fuckin' awful, while Bob Dylan (songwriter) is a genius.

    I'm an equal opportunity kinda guy Ron, I think the same for Neil Young - just can't stand his whining.

    Also, in no order of suckiness, I don't get the love for:

    No Doubt (and by association, Gwen Stefani)
    Animal Collective (but I love love love Panda Bear)
    Yeah Yeah Yeahs
    Wilco (I own A Ghost is Born and YHF and can't stand either one)
    Kanye West
    The Offspring
    Grateful Dead (and any current band that wishes it were the Dead)
    Ben Harper

    I'm sleepy, that'll do for now...
    A teenage dream, so hard to beat...

    most of these bands seem to purposefully go for a weird/trendy/overtly abstract/hipster indie style, instead of making music for the sake of music, without worrying about fitting in with all the scenesters. the one band on this list that i honestly have given over 5 chances to is madness. prior to seeing them on the bill for coachella, i had never heard about them. i listened to every song on their myspace countless times, but what the fuck. not trying to be rude, but you guys actually like ska?
    secondly, i'm sure i would like some of these bands if i saw them live, because seeing hot chip, justice, and arcade fire last year really changed my view of them. i thought hot chip was pretty overrated and just made boring analog blips and beeps, but they fucking rocked last coachella and their albums are pretty incredible. and as far as ryan adams goes, hes simply incredible. he's one of my favorite artists because he seems distant from the whole music culture - he's just in it to make music for himself and whoever wants to listen. lyrics are sincere, he plays most of the instruments himself on many of his albums, and his country and folk roots are genuine and not generic like many indie bands trying to go for the "country" sound

Robert Plant would probably be on there somewhere too.
