Hate?

Reading the Slipknot stuff in the "Bought Albums" thread got me to thinking about bands and artists I "hate". I quote the word hate because it is not necessarily a hate as in loathing or contempt but more a hate as disrespect or just plain can't enjoy them. So I will list a few bands or artists I "hate" and explain why. There will be no "I hate them cause they look funny" or anything like that.

---------------------------------------------------------
Slipknot (who didn't see that coming Very Happy ) - Why do I hate them? Not because of who they are, frankly I think they are actually talented musicians and can make good music, but they just don't. I actually like one or two of their songs to tell the truth. But my reasons for hating (or if you think that's too harsh a word, disliking) them is simply their music stinks, in my opinion. Talented as they may be, they just can't seem to pull off writing good songs. I think they are in it just for the fame and such (all the faggoths that like them and emos and such, folks that probably never heard a real metal band like Iced Earth). I think that if they spend time worrying about writing songs that are good rather than writing for their fans or for making money (though there is nothing wrong with making a living out of making music whether it sucks or not), they probably would be a better band in my opinion.

The fans are another reason I don't like them. Some of those same fans are big fans of Cradle Of Filth too, which I find disturbing, but understand why. They only discovered COF from Nymphetamine on up so they don't know their truly harder darker earlier stuff. Not that I don't like Nymphetamine on up, COF are my fave band ever so so far nothing they released has sucked in anyway to me. I just don't really see how they can compare COF's latest stuff to Slipknot. Really they are totally different. It's like saying you like Johnny Cash's music cause it reminds you of Slayer's music. It's just so different and yes I think COF and Slipknot are that different musically. Cash and Slayer sound nothing alike nor do COF and Slipknot, yet fans like both (I like Johnny Cash AND Slayer). I think fans think they have to find similar bands to enjoy in order to enjoy them more, even if they find bands that are in no way similar to Slipknot in the least.

Ok that's enough for now, I will continue with more bands soon. In the mean time how bout you folks? You hate a certain band, let us know why. I don't think "They just suck" is reason enough. How bout telling us WHY they suck. Know what I mean Vern?

Van Halen.....I have never liked this band not sure why though

Metallica. Sold out, all they care about it money, don't give a crap about thier fans.

Cradle of filth. Dani Filth's voice kills my brain. They've also sold out as well. I haven't heard the new album, but It peobably won't be good.

Any metalcore band. All the same, crappy vocals, lame lyrics, horrible muscians.
NightCrawler

I hate (or better said: can't stand) all these emo-shit-bands. They sound (at least to me) repitative and if you know one, you know them all, cause they all sound exactly the same! And that's fucking annoying!

What I also hate are all these generic (Raw) Black Metal bands. Obviously for the same reasons Wink plus the fact, that the sound quality is often so fucking pathetic that you just want to smash the whole player where this noise comes from.

Almost forgotten:

How many of you are expecting me to say something negative to the folks who hate Cradle Of Filth? Hope no one cause I can't. Just cause they are my favorite band doesn't mean they are the best band in the world. Hating Dani's voice is good enough reason to hate them.

Thinking they sold out like Metallica is another good reason. I don't think they sold out like Metallica, sold out in a different way maybe. To me Metallica sold out by changing or watering down their music JUST to make money. In my opinion COF did not do this, they changed cause they wanted too not for the money and unlike most folks opinions I still think the watered down COF kicks ass, unlike the watered down Metallica. Though I can be wrong. Also this is not biased cause COF are my current faves, Metallica were the top before Load came out, they were my fave band ever til that album. I have yet to dislike any COF album.

So what if folks hate my favorite band, though I doubt any IE haters will post here, we know they exist somewhere. Everyone's tastes in music is different, if it wasn't than music would cease to exist cause it would end up sucking so bad, in m opinion.

DIE YOU PEE BRAIN!



Yeah I hate most (all) Nu-"metal" bands, at least the one that call themselves Metal! Why? Because it doesn't sound like metal!
And, it is for kids!
But some of the fans are even worse than the band itself!
example: When the new Slipknot CD came out many of the "hardcore" Slipknot fans didn't like it! But many other people that didn't listen to Slipknot before loved it!
And in my opinion this is even worse! The band sells out and changes style completely, they do everything that isn't metal! And real metal fans LIKE IT! It's fucking disgusting.
Now why did they change style then???
Because it's about money!

Note that it's more bands (Metallica) than Slipknot that do is!

Megadeth, I don't really hate them, I just don't like what they are doing, and their music is nothing special. I do not disrespect Dave Mustaine in any way, he is a great musician and a sympathic character, I simply think his voice is shit...and his songs are boring. What I REALLY don't like, are those people which always compare Metallica with Megadeth, cause they have nothing to do with eachother, except of Dave being a former member of metallica in the very early days.

Man o' war, they are really emberessing and their music is SO far away of being good in any way, and their writing is not creative enough to make their riffs and songs good.

Burzum, I really hate them, music's shit, riffs are even worth and about the lyrics we not even have to talk

And of corse the EMO shit, I hate it, it makes metal bad, and that people even think they belong to metal scene is emberessing for me. They even go as far, to hear really good metal stuff and think that it belongs to their "oh my life's so bad, I'm so hurt bla bla..." shit. May the hammer of Thor strike those fuckers down to the ground and smash their bodies upon the surface of "true" metal....



"Dante: And, it is for kids!"
we already had that I guess, didn't we?   Laughing

(hey I was right about the "we all hate slipknot thread", cause this one will probably turn out as something like it...)

Oh, I hate emo bands like Bullet For My Valentine and all the stuff like that : I'm sure they could do better stuff, but I just can't hear that shit. And like Stormrider like before, there are some Slipknot' song that sound good, but I really dislike 'em.

There's a lot of band that I don't like, but I don't really hate them (like Dimmu Borgir, Immortal) but generally, I dislike very much Black Metal band : I can't hear that stuff !

One more thing that I hate : the guys who say that they know Iron Maiden, but they only know Fear Of The Dark, Run To The Hills or/and The Number Of The Beast

Wait there's other Maiden tunes besides what you quoted? I'll be damned! Ha just kidding. But seriously you are right and it's not just Maiden it's several other bands, usually classic bands still making albums like Metallica for example. Most new Metallica fans only know from Load up or maybe even the black album. New Maiden fans only know of them thru Guitar Hero or Rock Band which ever (if not both) one has the Maiden songs on it. I mean Maiden has lots of non hit classics like To Tame A Land, Revelations (incidentally both from the same album), 22 Acacia Avenue, Phantom Of The Opera, Rime Of The Ancient Mariner too name but a few.

I totally agree with you dude ! There are some hits but there are a lot of better songs, and Revelations is my favourite song with Dance Of Death (nobody can say that they're the most known Iron Maiden' songs), and it's the same stuff with all the bands finally. But I get really angry when it happens with Maiden
Tainted Innocence

psh,
too long to name ALL of them,
mostly the ones i hate are "nu-metal" (there is some i like)

and rap.
and niggers...hahahahahaha i'm totally kidding hahahha black people are cool.

(now i am going to get banned)

anyways...
most of the bands i hate aren't because i hate the bands it's mostly because i hate how the fans obsess about them to the point of getting closed minded.

No, no.

There are Niggers, and then there are Black People. I know I'm going off topic but there is a difference.

hmm...can't agree that all christian music should suck. It also depends on what you count to christian music. But as I see it, you also count christian metal there. And there's alot of great christian metal bands, some examples: Rob Rock, Saviour Machine, Place of Skulls, Saviour Machine, Ultimatum, Divinefire, Theocrazy.

and there's also Neal Morse, awesome progressive rock. On most albums he has Mike Portnoy on drums which dosn't make the thing worse exactly.

So I think for most part christian music sucks, but I can't say all christian music is sucks.
