There are several for me recently.

1. LCD Soundsystem

This guy gets nothing but praise and I just dont get why. The music is catchy sure but how is it any better than other electronica?

2. Paramore

The lead singer has a decent voice but they just sound like a generic pop punk band.

3. Oasis

All their songs sound the same for the most part. Standing on the shoulders of giants has a few more interesting tracks but they are nowhere near as good as Blur.

Porcupine Tree, sure they're incredibly talented but I just find their music kind of boring.

Agree with Paramore... also any metal band. I dont get the grunting and growling whatsoever...I also dont understand how people pass off their lyrics as poetic and deep when its clearly just nonsense...

Oh FFS. Must metal fans always defend their genre when somebody says they hate cookie monster vocals? Yes we know not all of metal is like that but let the person just say what's on his mind.

"Techno is so dumb. Just some bloops and bleeps with a dumb beat". OK fair enough I'm not going to defend the genre every time. Nor will I defend a specific sport for same reason when somebody gives a one sentence reason of why they don't care for it att all.

I can understand why most bands, even lame emo bands get appeal. I mean emo kids have to listen to emo bands right? I just don't understand how they can like bands that have no knowledge of music WHATSOEVER Like that brokencyde band I only heard of yesterday. TERRIBLE. I've listened to many genres throughout my life, even screamoish stuff (only limited to Alexisonfire pretty much though, they were never considered to be scene or emo which is nice) so I can see the appeal of screamo, but some people must realize some stuff is utter **** even if it falls into the genre they like.

AMEN! The worst ones are the ones that are "cool" because they're original shopping at Hollister and wearing flanels with boat shoes and a beany because even thought they live on the other side of the country California is where their heart is though they have never been there before.

Also I used to listen to "indie" if you will. I was lucky my city took so long to develop the scene side of things for me to outgrow it and move on before hating the people who listened to the same music as me. Now it's overrun with ALOT of people who rock flannel every single day etc. (flannel is cool, but it's almost a necessity where I live now). I remember emo was in when I listened to indie, and I could tell that that lifestyle was going to spill into it soon. I can't help but still like the music, but I refuse to go to any old show now Now I'm just sticking to electronic music (synth pop throwbacks, electro, IDM) where the people are still average people. I swear if this scene **** spills into these genres I'm going to go ape ****

Film-Guy

Them's fightin' words. :evil:

The main appeal (to me, anyway) is the smart, witty and personal, yet easy to relate to lyrics, but the beats/arrangements are also creative and well done. Very few people could make a song like "All My Friends" work in the first place, let alone work and be a song you could dance to.

Anyway, while I enjoy their music I don't get why people are as in love with Fleet Foxes as they are, and I've never been able to get into Deerhunter. And in an admission that will probably have me deported, I've never been blown away by Rush.

I was not much into the Fleet Foxes before I saw them live. They were incredible - the lead singer has so much gravity in his presence. The harmonies were great too. Now I love them. They are in the same place in my heart as CSNY, really.

And it's tough to impress me with a live show. I've seen literally hundreds of bands live.

You are an idiot, not every metal vocalist growls, listen to Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest, Motorhead etc no growling.

Thats just a generalisation and it is so not true, and as for the thread title, i hate the whole indie genre.

Anyways, I've got a grudge against many hip-hop / rap artists because i just cant stand them... Their songs are utterly pointless and promote violance, they dress wierd and stuff like that...
But not all of them. Just the over the top ones, i know rap used to be better...

Yeah i agree, i don't understand why these groups get so much attention from the media and why their music is played on TV and the radio it makes no sense, if somebody took a minute to read the lyrics to these songs they would realise it's talentless rubbish.

Although not all rap is bad, i do think 80's rap is okay like Notorious B.I.G. and N.W.A and i don't even like rap.

I don't get the appeal of:

Screamo Music

Metal

Rap

---

I don't understand why people like that stuff... With screamo you just have some idiot who you can't understand literally screaming... With metal you just have the same thing as screamo usually, but also with loud music... And rap... Rap is not music... Rap is just some piece of crap rhyming about either how terrible life is or women (but not women as women, women as sex objects)...
