Re: Share your unpopular music opinions

Nirvana was on repeat for me in HS when it really resonated with my angst. Hardly ever find myself listening to them at all the past 12 or so years but they accomplished what they needed to for me

    They're only worshipped because Cobain died. That's it. Pearl Jam would be the same way if EV had passed away back then too.


    To your bolded, I'm right there with you. ELP is a top 10 band of all time imo.

    Rush is the biggest waste of musical talent ever. Like nails on a chalk board.

    What ELP was able to accomplish as far as soundscapes, keyboard distortion, etc., at that point in time gets majorly overlooked. Also, Greg Lake has like a top-5 rock and roll voice of all-time. Dude has some serious pipes.

    Can only take Rush in small doses. Becomes grating after a while. Geddy Lee can't sing.

    Anyone into Muse? They fucking rock. Their shows are among the best live music you can see. Light show is worth it alone.

    I think there was a Muse song in one of the Guitar Hero games that I sort of liked.

    Did you listen to Fallen Empires? I feel like that would have been a more proper follow-up to Eyes Open instead of A Hundred Million Suns which was disappointing.

    Muse and Keane, listened to them a lot in 04.

    After eyes open I kind of faded from them, kind of forgot they were making new music, don't know why because I liked them a good bit

    Agreed. Changed the game when it came to jazz-rock in a time where rock was psychadelic and becoming super mainstream. Forefathers of prog rock. Tarkus might be my favorite tune of theirs.

    Re: Share your unpopular music opinions

    Just chiming in based on what people have said; my opinions..

    PJ has plenty of blah stuff, BUT they have enough great/classic songs that their praise is deserved. And they are awesome live. Most bands don't write half as many good songs as PJ did on one album.

    Nirvana's praise is deserved to the extent that they legit altered popular music culture, but I agree the music itself isn't anything particularly special. Good but never did much more for me.

    Radiohead not overrated at all, though I totally understand why people don't like them and/or can't get into them. But it's very rare that an act as 'mainstream' as them continually challenge themselves/their fans and not just become complacent like a certain band we all like on here...

    Never really listened to Rush too much so am pretty apathetic.
