3) Most certainly does not excuse Slayer for all the awful trend hoping they did from 1995-2005.
Agreed on all points.

Every member of the band is incredibly overrated at what they do, their songs are boring and they all sound the same, generally speaking. There is no band that quite bores/annoys me like them. It should be noted that with only a few exceptions, I basically hate all 70s "Classic Rock".

Just because a band's songs all sound the same doesn't mean the band is bad. If the songs are good, then what's the problem?

But I do realize that's not the only reason you don't like them. They bore you- well, I do admit that's subjective. A song that bores one person may not bore another. I cannot see anybody being bored by AC/DC, but whatever

1) It doesn't necessarily mean the band is BAD, but it does mean the band is uncreative and one-dimensional. Not necessarily by lack of skill, maybe just by choice or not caring.

2) This is why I am bored by AC/DC's music: It's more or less just 4 chords over and over and over -and simple power chords at that. In addition to that it's mind-numbingly simple drumming, non-existent bass playing, and in my opinion incredible overrated simple blues-based lead guitar. For someone who has several years of music theory classes behind them and a lot of knowledge of how the intricacies of music work, to listen to what AC/DC does can really just sound like child's play.

That's about the long and the short of it for me. And I'm not a n00b, I've heard several full-length AC/DC albums, I'm not just judging by the 3 or 4 most popular radio hits.
