    Default The Critics Love Them But You Think They Suck

    Worst critically acclaimed band of.. relatively recent history.

    don't get mad at me for my list, I think many of these bands are wonderful, I just want to see how people vote.

    Also, The Arcade Fire. My personal Hell involves the AF crew singing at me while I'm forced to slice bagels with a poorly designed uni-tasking tool. Though I guess even the most poorly sliced bagel is delicious when a small amount of heat is applied. Maybe that's true for The Arcade Fire as well.

    You know, now that I think of it, the only critically-adored band that I can recall ever really aggressively enraging me are Animal Collective.

    what the fuck critics are most of you referring to?

    It's the critics part that throws me.

    The band that everybody seems to like and I just can't get into would be . . . Sigur Ros.

    This must be the 50th thread about this topic. It might've been okay if Tom actually posted the poll, but....

    Uh, Muse are pretty much the exact opposite of critically acclaimed.

    Arcade Fire and especially Animal Collective are the correct answers to this thread.
