Your Favourite Band & What You Dislike About Them........

Post by seamiedev » Mon Jun 03, 2013 7:22 pm

What is it about your favourite band that ticks you off ??

Me ?? - Metallica's my favourite, but really gets under my skin that they never seem to put any effort into the b-sides of their singles, with a few exceptions throughout their career the bSides are just a live tracked from the current or previous tour, surly they could stick in a cover version here or there or there's surely some tracks left over that didn't make the album cut...............
:D

I have a few...
Frank - It'd be nice sometimes if songs weren't so sad or thoughtful...cause sometimes I don't want to think so much!
Green Day - Cant afford tickets. That's not their fault obviously, but it doesn't seem what music should be about.
Ed Harcourt - Same with the thoughtful thing, but too haunting to care. Takes me back to hearing The Beautiful Lie aged 11/12.
NOFX - Gigs so drunk you sound awful. Not cool.
Blondie - Recent songs are poppy and not so great.
Stuff like Motion City Soundtrack, Bayside, Tsunami Bomb - great bands, but a shame that they're so angry with the world.

BRMC - that they reside in the US and thus I cannot see them as often as I would like
however saying that I doubt they would create the albums they do living anywhere else so I will live with it

This is my issue with Foo Fighters. I never get to see them as often as I'd like to.

Just the opposite here. I live in the US and a couple of my favorite acts over the years have come from the UK (James) or Australia (Paul Kelly), and hardly ever toured over here. Thank goodness Frank logs all those air hours....

Green Day - Good Riddance covered on Glee, Song used in Twilight soundtrack.
Foo Fighters - Currently on hiatus - in their prime!
Weezer - Desperate to see them live but doesn't seem like they have plans to tour the UK soon :(
Rage - Not touring.
At The Drive In - Brief reunion and although I got to see them :) - seems like their live performance was so much better when they first formed.

Bright Eyes - I love you, you're amazing, I have done for eleven years or so, but let's admit it, between me and you, Connor, you're a twat. Cut that out.
Jens Lekman - Jens, you're a wonderful tortured soul, you do crazy things and we all love you just the way you are, but please, play more gigs and release more music.
Jenny Lewis - Jenny, why won't you have my children?

Bruce Springsteen - Released two albums in the 90's that were only so-so. And he never drops "Waiting on a sunny day" from his setlist. Nothing else I dislike about him at all at all.

The Waterboys - Recent albums sound like too much gets done on the computer. I wish they wouldn't keep changing line up, though having Steve Wickham back in the band makes all the difference.
