"It began as a mistake" - Charles Bukowski
I like Luna.
Sorry, but people that hate Radiohead fall into one of two categories:
1. musically ignorant people with terrible taste
2. people that just hate everything that too many people genuinely love
8/20 SISU and Tanlines @ Sayers Club, 8/21 The Zombies @ Santa Monica Pier, 8/23-24 FYF Fest, 9/10 Swans @ Roxy, 9/18 Neutral Milk Hotel & Daniel Johnston @ Hollywood Bowl, 9/19 Tokimonsta @ El Rey, 9/30 Cibo Matto @ the Roxy, 10/3-4 Desert Stars, 10/9 Zola Jesus @ El Rey, 10/16 Massive Attack @ Greek Theater, 10/22-25 CMJ, 10/26 Asobi Seksu & Slowdive @ Royale
We've accomplished a lot here today. A round of applause, everyone.
I don't like radiohead. Why? It might be because the few songs I know I don't care for. To be honest though I haven't actually sat with any of the albums for any quality listening so my opinion is purely based on ignorance.
this thread is now livelier than Todd Bridges on crack.
Manu Chao = crazy fun times
Radiohead = sleeping on my feet*
*granted, i was occasionally awoken by some rather intense muzak, still they almost put me to sleep countless times
I would expect more out of you. That's no reason not to like a band. There's a reason why they're so popular and revered by so many. They're the reason why I like music as much as I do. I don't think you're a "douche" or anything for not liking them, but I feel like you would if you gave them an honest listen.
Again, I'll help you get started if you want.
Manu Chao was SO much fun at Coachella. I would see them again in a heartbeat. But it's pointless to compare because they're different styles. I'd prefer to listen to Radiohead, but Manu Chao's music and especially live show definitely has its place.
