Every concert ends with a standing ovation

Wait, why is a rock band playing in a venue where people are sitting down??

"They really are pure talent" said sophomore John Doe " I only hope that one day I can be as talented as Chad and the boys."

If you can't take John Doe's word for it, I don't know what to tell you. This thread is full of haters, on the greatest band since Led Zeppelin.

I hate em because I cant turn on my radio without hearing them. At least that's valid.

Oh yes, because Jack White is so untalented. It's okay, you like a shiatty band. I love Journey.

Talented maybe, but he still plays shiatty unlistenable music.

ecl:

LOL the shiat people here on Fark remember from months ago. I can't believe I made enough of a lasting impression on someone that they remember me saying Kid Rock makes some decent music in some Fark thread months ago.

This entire thread reeks of folks hating on things because it's popular and acceptable to do so and it gives them something to interact with others about. There's a lot of music out there I don't like, but there's not a single band or musician/artist/whatever that I just absolutely hate, except maybe Gary Glitter, but that's due to the child pron more than his music.

I flagged everyone who was defending Kid C*ck so don't feel too special.

"If I like a band, I like a band. I've seen Creed six times. They're never boring. Never. And I've seen a lot of boring shows from other people." I ask her what bands have been boring. Her instantaneous response is Incubus.

At least she qualified her opinion as worthless immediately after giving it.

What a boring incubus concert may look like

Just giving you a warm welcome to Fark.

Thank you, I'm glad you reminded me of what I really am. They obviously must give that totalfark tag to the brightest and wittiest commenters on this site.

ununcle: I like Creed. The hate on Stap is pretty much because he was openly Christian. Nickleback however, does nothing for me.


Nah, the hate on Stapp was because he was a self-important, sanctimonious, belligerent, prick.


That said, I enjoy Nickelback and Creed's music for what it is.

Creed - Scott Stapp + Myles Kennedy. Link. What have we learned today children? Myles Kennedy can make Creed not suck and does a better Axl Rose than Axl Rose can do anymore.
 
2012-04-25 08:40:46 PM  

sigdiamond2000: Repeat from the redlit thread yesterday: The only thing that could possibly be worse than attending a Creed/Nickleback show is reading a Chuck Klosterman article about it.


NINDroog: I'd rather stay at home and bash myself in the testicles with a ball-peen hammer than go to either of those concerts or read a Klosterman article



Odd. I'd somehow managed to go through life without stumbling onto anything Klosterman wrote until just now, and I came in here to mention that I enjoyed reading the essay and I look forward to checking out other things he's written.

Based on this one piece he sounds stereotypically Generation X to an extreme, but I've enjoyed that navel-gazing shiat ever since that cohort started getting writing gigs. And maybe he's pretending he's essayist-DFW a little bit, but that's okay as long as he doesn't start going nuts with the footnotes.

I didn't get that off either of them. And objectively, both bands suck to the point that--even if someone likes them--their suckiness being a foregone conclusion isn't coming from the pretentious side. It's not even their music. Take Limp Bizkit, for example. Talented guitarist, but Limp Bizkit sucks. Sucking is an all encompassing artform. It's almost intangible. Scott Stapp makes Creed suck. And Creed could be any other heavy radio rotation band if not for Scott Stapp.

That's your opinion and you are entitled to it. I think Creed sucks simply BECAUSE they're a heavy radio rotation band. That's all it needs for me. I've seen a lot of bands go from meh to suck because of the farking radio. I hate to say it, because I think I'd like the dude, personally, but the goddamned foo fighters are headed down that pit right now for me at damn near lightspeed.

GOOD LORD KNOCK IT OFF WITH THE farkING FOOS, ALREADY!!!!

You are the definition of a hipster. Hating something because lots of other people like it is beyond stupid.

And you're an idiot. I don't hate it because everyone likes it. I hate it because I can't turn on the farking radio without having someone asking is someone else is getting the best of me, or telling me that one of these days, or if I'm farking wasting light.

nice try tho.

Ok, fine. You hate them because the guys who control what gets played on the radio likes to play them a lot.

Nickelback is like alizee or new kids on the block - orchestrated, bland, corporate pop that's so carefully calculated to fit its demographic that it's practically neutered musically. And, unlike alizee, there's no sexy dance to distract from that fact. Or, the guilt of feeling vaguely like a pedo admittedly. Instead, with nickelback, you feel like the pre-teen with an IQ level to match.

I'm from Tallahassee Florida, you know, the town that gave the world Creed AND T-Pain. So if you think your life is a living hell then think again buster! To make matters worse, Tally used to have a cool alternative/punk scene in the 80's and 90's. I was in a couple of bands at that time and there was a place to play most any weekend. Now there are very few places in town that hire all orginal acts that play any style of music. Plus I'm old now.

Ok, Einstein, explain to me how disliking something that you are forced to digest multiple times, eventually against your will, is dumb. Please. It's like pizza. You might like it, but if you have to eat the shiat every day, three times a day, eventually you're going to dislike it. It's human nature, now explain to me how that is dumb, you pompous ass.

I don't really have an opinion on their music either way (for both bands) but I have met Scott Stapp a few times. He lives near me and our sons played little league (back whe it was boca raton youth baseball) together.

he is a foul mouthed dude. never heard a parent curse so much on the bleachers. probably had five skoal bandits in. his wife/girlfriend kept telling him to calm down. this was the one he had recently been arrested for slapping around.

i admit...i liked hootie. there were a couple of songs on each album that i liked...not necessarily the hits but there were a few. i like a wide range of music. classical, jazz, blues, classic rock, country, western swing, thrash metal, prog metal, and more. my wife hates listening to my ipod in the car because it can go from john denver to slayer to toby keith to rush or john coltrane in a short span of time.

MattyFridays: It's funny. This entire thread is what I expected when Klosterman wrote it. People hate for the sake of hating without weighing merits, etc.

There's no logical discourse, it's just that one person says they suck and another person agrees with it because it's "cool" to do so without any reasoning behind it.

Case in point: Justin Beiber. I don't *hate* Justin Beiber. He has done nothing wrong to earn my ire, other than be a popular pop singer. There are people who do like him. So why should I fault those people?

One of my favorite bands is basically a reformation of a 90's one hit wonder. (Refreshments -> Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers). I'm not going to fault anyone who DOESN'T like them, if it's not their thing, but Nickleback sells out arenas. I just don't get it.

Like what you like.


I appreciate your point of view... and thank you for reminding me about the Refreshments... I wore out Fizzy Fuzzy, etc when I was about 15, but I hadn't heard it since then, listening now... holy shiat. This is blowing my mind!

You are being a deliberately obtuse dickweed. Saying instead of disliking the song, just turn off the radio...because you dont want to dislike the song, you just dont want to hear it, so since you don't want to hear the song to keep you from disliking it, you just deprive yourself of the entire experience?
