Well Maroon 5 definitely takes the number 1 spot if I'd have to choose.

Nickelback is just so bad they're good.

There's only few bands in particular that I really dislike. I guess the specific ones on my list would be Avenged Sevenfold, Guns N Roses, and A Day to Remember and the rest can just be any shitty metal/death-core and glam metal bands.

If I was to do a least favorite bands list it would be dominated by modern country and indie shit like the Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver. When it comes to metal bands it would be vagcore bands like Asking Alexandria, We Came as Romans, and Make Me Famous, really shitty deathcore like Chelsea Grin and Atilla, and basically any power metal band.

In terms of what I've heard, Oceano are probably the band that have least entertained me while still containing elements of styles of music I usually enjoy. They bored the hell out of me. After that, I really don't put thought into music I don't like. If I don't like it, I don't listen to it. I try to find merit in all music so I can at least meet people half-way when bands I may not like or listen to come up.

I could care less that Nirvana killed hair metal. What drives me crazy about them is the fact that everyone thinks they were a revolution & Cobain was the voice of a generation, etc. As far as the whole grunge scene goes, they were awful. Alice In Chains, Soundgarden & Pearl Jam were all vastly superior.

Nah, it's because Nirvana is fuckin garbage band. Nevermind is an OK but massively overrated album and the bulk of their other material is pure shit. At least with Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl has shown that there was talent in the band but because they just recorded all the shit songs Cobain wrote it never showed at that time. I still remember a smile coming over my face when I heard a DJ on the local rock station announce Cobian's death.

Yes, I hated Nirvana that much.

That's a weird thing to say. Sure, Nirvana were the most "iconic" of those bands, but it's not like Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam languished in obscurity.

I feel like when it comes to Nirvana, people see their opinion of a band, not the one that actually existed. Their early stuff was noisy and kind of dumb for the most part, but Nevermind and In Utero are highly polished, well-written rock albums.

And please don't come at me with that "Kurt's lyrics were stupid/made no sense," because I will find a dozen examples from your favorite metal bands that are far more idiotic.

As far as metal I extremely dislike Hatebreed, Devil Wears Prada, Volbeat, Dragonforce and Mutiny Within. Black Veil Brides and everyone of their ilk might also be one of the worst things to exist.

If we're talking non-metal then Carly Simon, Taylor Swift, Nickelback, Carly Simon, 98% of country music and Carly Simon.

Why hate on Mutiny Within? I understand that people got annoyed in 2010 when they were on every single metal tour but they're not even together anymore, if that really annoyed you you should be over it by now.

Also, whats with all the Volbeat hate? I've heard that they get played on the radio in other states (never heard them on fm over here) but are they really that bad? I think they're a fun live band.

This is a list that will change so much the next time I turn on the radio, but I really can't stand Green Day, Taylor Swift, Adele, Lady Gaga, Devildriver and Maroon 5. Some aren't bands, whatever, they're the death of music.

Green Day just are sad to me. They started out annoying but now they're old men trying to recapture that youthful energy. After spending the last decade trying to convince people "we're not those young punks anymore, take us serious". Just sad. I usually feel a little sorry for people when they have drug problems (usually) but when Billie Joe had his breakdown last month I really cared less than I do about the Octomom.

Taylor Swift is just so corporate and phony. Every song is what every girl daydreams about. "He was a boy, I was a girl, he played football, we held hands". Deep. At first it was fine but now it's old.

Adele and Lady Gaga just make me shudder.

Devildriver because for some reason I don't like Dez Falafala.

And Maroon 5 just fucking suck.

It's a lot easier to narrow down my ten FAVORITE bands than my ten least favorite.

I was just listing bands that I generally hate their music and Mutiny Within falls under that category. I only saw them once and it was god awful. They just always come to mind when I think of bands I don't like.

I've never heard Volbeat on the radio, although I never listen to the radio. My main problem with Volbeat is the vocals. Can't stand 'em, which sucks because their concept sounds so promising on paper.

Somewhere in the ballpark of 1,000,000 albums are released a year and most of you probably hear somewhere around 20 of them so please don't pretend you have anything resembling a valid opinion about your least favorite bands. You haven't heard your least favorite band, because they're opening the bill at a four-band local metalcore show in Hamilton, Ontario.

Alternative rock/Metal/Hardrock, not in order:

1) Cradle of filth
2) Korn
3) Channel zero
4) Volbeat
5) Guns & roses current edition
6) Sepultura current edition
7) Nickelback
8) Nirvana. Only because there are alternative rock bands, before & after, that are MUCH better. (Pixies, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden...)

Plus: deathcore, dubcore, unproduced black metal & porngrind.

When it comes to "other genres": Lady Gaga, rnb, jazz, boybands, Dutch/French/German "schlagermusic", Bieber, etc... But I have a huge taste in music, I always say "everything from Adele to Morbid Angel".

Of course you don't believe me,since you hate hair metal.Anyway,if Nirvana killed hair metal so badly,then why was it that the following year that Nevermind was released Def Leppard released Adrenalize that had four top 40 hits?why did FireHouse have a top 40 hit in 1995?why are there many hair bands still around today,some of the them still playing arenas?why are there many new hair bands having great success in the underground?some new hair bands are actually scoring top 40 hits in other countries outside of America.I'm sure you have tons of smart alec answers to this,but no matter what you or anybody says I'll always believe hair metal is still alive.

When people say that Nirvana killed hair metal they mean it in the context that hair metal was the 'big thing' in rock at the time. Grunge introduced the average listener to a heavier sound than had ever been popular in the mainstream. The more heavily distorted guitar and less intelligible vocal delivery were new things to 'mainstream' or 'radio rock'. Sure, it's not like everyone who was into hair and glam metal stopped listening to it or attending concerts, but the total dominance of it as the primary form of modern rock music on MTV and radio of that era was coming to a close. So it's not so much that grunge killed off hair metal, it just began to signal a change in the style of popular rock music.

My only question would be: what new hair metal bands are finding success in the underground?

The weird thing is, if Nirvana started up now instead of back in the 90s, they would still be just as jarring. Modern rock needs another kick in the teeth like it got back in 1991.

Except wasn't that the reason Nevermind got big (and subsequently why Kurt would come to hate it)? Because it was too well-produced? I mean you said it yourself.

I guess it depends on your definition of "overproduced," but I would disagree. Nevermind and In Utero sound good, but the songs are still raw and messy. Modern rock now is impeccably played, over-compressed and digital-sounding.

I'm really talking more about In Utero, though. They were at the peak of their popularity, but instead of pushing things towards a slicker product, they were writing stuff like "Milk It" and "Radio Friendly Unit Shifter." I mean, their mind set is pretty well spelled-out in the title of that last one :lol:

I don't like Nirvana, but I do like a lot of other alternative rock bands, I'm checking out Soundgarden as we speak.

I'm sick of those "troo methulheads/bands" that complain about the grunge, because it didn't even last that long.

Grunge came out in a time that extreme metal was up & coming. Some "old skool" bands kept their succes, even though they changed (Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer). And Pantera was popular as well.
