6 Bands That I Can't Stand

A few of these bands actually have ONE song that I enjoy with the rest of their output being a steaming pile of monkey shit.

1) U2 (The very first band that comes to mind! They may be the most overrated band ever! When I hear songs like "With Or Without You", and "Where The Streets Have No Name" I puke in my mouth a little. The weird thing about bands that I hate like U2 is that they do seem to manage to create one song that's actually worth a shit. That song is "New Years Day".)

2) Lynyrd Skynyrd (I never could stand this band or 99% of Southern Rock. It's just terrible. "Free Bird" makes me run to the radio to turn the station. It's just so boring to me. I've heard one song from this band that I do like. That song is "That Smell". Again, a band that I can't stand that has one good song.

3) Pearl Jam (I hate this band. I hate the "grunge" genre. I can't stand Eddie Vedder's voice. There has only been two songs where I like his vocals. I like the song "Not For You". His vocals still aren't great, but at least they are tolerable. The other song isn't even a Pearl Jam song. The song "Hunger Strike" by Temple Of The Dog is basically his only great moment.)

4) The Who (Yet another overrated band. It may actually be Roger Daltrey that ruins this band for me. Then again a lot of the music is just bland in my opinion. Again, the one and only song by The Who that I actually like a lot is "Eminence Front".

5) Voivod (If ever there was music that should be played as a form of torture it should be Voivod's music. They suck! As long as I live there will never ever be a song by this band that I enjoy. Come to think of it this band should be in the number 1 spot...not that these bands are in any real order.

6) Nevermore (Anyone who has ever seen me post on various Metal message boards in the past ten years knows that I cannot stand Warrell Danes's vocals with Nevermore. He just ruins the band for me. He has to have the most boring voice in metal. Skip sleeping pills when you can't sleep. Just listen to a Nevermore album. BTW the image above is the talentless idiot Warrell Dane. Note: He was once a good vocalist for the band Sanctuary. What the hell happened is anyone's guess. If this band had a different vocalist they would probably be a decent band.

I love those bands. Except Voivod who I don't think I've heard much of, if any.

I heard Warrel Dane was replacing Bobby Blitz. Just a rumor at this point.

In all seriousness, I love some Voivod, but some Voivod is downright awful. Plus, it took me a while to get into them and really "get" their sound. I still think "Nothingface" is a masterpiece.

Sanctuary's way better than Nevermore, but I generally like Dane's vocals. You wanna talk boring clean vox, I think John Bush takes that cake. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

I do like "Give Me Back My Bullets" from Lynyrd Skynyrd (is that how it's spelled? fuck, i don't care), but that's probably from all the good memories of the Briscoe Brothers using it as their entrance music and cracking some skulls.

I think John Bush fits Anthrax better than any of their vocalists. I don't know what it is but I really like him with Anthrax and Armored Saint.

Voivod just sucks to my ears. I just don't understand why people like them. Of course King Fowley thinks they are incredible yet trashes on Bay Area Thrash which is miles better than Voivod imo.

If Warrell ever replaced Blitz I'd go see Overkill live, jump on stage and kick Warrell's ass!!!!

Games I'm Playing:

About Me

My photo
Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States
I'm 38. I'm addicted to Xbox 360 gaming and Dallas Stars hockey. I make a decent living at a boring job where I run two autoclaves and do various other tasks. My escape from this boring as hell life is video games, hockey, and music. I generally listen to Metal music, but I also love 80's tunes as well as 70's tunes. I have an unusual love for the band Overkill. They do it for me for some reason. Blitz is GOD!
