Every rare once in awhile you hear this song that just kick ass and frick'n awesome. You search for days to figure out who did the song only to figure out its by an artist you have hated. I was wondering about your experiences in this area. For me it was “Come With Me” by Puff Daddy and Jimmy Page.

Im insulted that Jimmy Page, a guitar GOD, would team up with Puff Daddy but its actually turned into one of my favorite songs.

I don't remember band names or song names, so I just pick up random whatever.

I hate Bon Jovi, I really do. At least, I thought I did. Seems I can't help but love “It's My life”. Hate all the other stuff, but that one song's definitely one of my favourites. *shrug*
“Rawglrglrglrglrgl!” quoth the murloc, his wrath inflamed.

I listed to the begining of “Somewhere I Belong” by Linkin Park when I heard it on an AMV and really liked the part with no words. But then when I found out the song went past that, found who made it, and listened to it I really wondered how I could have liked anything by Linking Park. :?

I think the song's okay now, but it would be better with no words.

That's why I love SonicStage's Vocal Canceller.

Anyways, there are many songs I like, made by an artist I hate. Like, "What It's Like“ by Everlast. ”All My Life“ by K-Ci & Jo Jo, ”Non Compos Mentis“ by Haiku D'Etat, ”The Crossroads“ and ”For the Love of Money“ by Bone Thugs N Harmony. Why? Well, both well written songs, sung out beautifully, with masterful backgrounds. The rest, well. As being rap, you tell me why.

Don't let this out, but I liked the backgrounds of ”I'll Be Missing You“ by Puff Daddy and the entire ”Late Registration“ album by Kanye West. Don't let no one know, okay?

As this John Mayer dude, I hate him so much, but his music is just so damn catchy. And yes, I would glady sing ”Truly Madly Deeply" by Savage Garden outloud in public.

Oh, and I just fucking hate Tool.

Tool's Stink Fist is a fantastic song. I've never gotten into them though… that's their only song I like.

Savage Garden had two good singles when they first came out, really 80's pop sort of sounds with cyberpunk influenced filmclips. Then they changed the clips for the American market… Made them the typical dull prettyboy stuff… and their music also changed to be more shitty and bland. And then the other guy left only leaving the one that looks and sings like a girl. I hate him. :P

Bon Jovi were ok in the 80's. I still really love that clip to Bad Medicine with Sam Kineson trying to get groupies to do the filming on handicams… (fake filmclip stuff, but still good). They were a glam metal 80's partyband. Now they're a band for middleage women. I don't like Bon Jovi.

Aerosmith had a similar path to Bon Jovi. Except they were around before them. Tyler should go back on the drugs. I hate them now, but they did have quite a few good songs even a long while after he quit the drugs, the trouble was all those movie soundtrack deals.

That is all for now.

No, I believe it was Break Me Shake Me and To the Moon and Back.

But that was a while back now… They came out in Australia first, and then relaunched themselves for the American market with a more “boyband and or music for grandmothers and women with bland taste” sort of image, different film clips followed, etc. I hate it when bands do that.

Laibach are another band I'll add to the list. They were great with their mad, heavy rock, operatic stylings. Now that electric sound just doesn't pack the punch anymore, even though the songs are ok…

Ahha, I know a good one:
New Kids on the Block! I still like “The Right Stuff”, just that one song.

Mr. Neil
The Working Man by Rush. I can't STAND Geddy Lee, but somehow, he's actually tolerable in that song. And it kicks ass.

Ack, Geddy Lee is so cool. He and Neil Peart make such a good team. The progressive rocker I can't stand is Rick Wakeman. Damn, him. But I must say, I did enjoy the "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" album.

I never liked Electric Light Orchestra 2.

The funny thing is, "Bittersweet Symphony" wasn't The Verve's finest song, it was the entire Urban Hymns album. Too bad no one will ever know. When people talk about The Verve, they just remember this song, none of the other albums nor songs. Just "Bittersweet," and if you think about it, that pretty damn bittersweet.

OOoo, I know some more…
Black Sabbath! Hate them, because of Osborne, he's a SHIT singer. There's this funny clip on the net with this shirtless American hillbilly singing Sabbath songs. He's actually better than Ozzy. -in my opinion.
I like Paranoid and Iron Man of course, but Ozzy's voice starts to grate pretty quickly.

Metalica. I don't like them, never have. They've got a couple of ok songs, but they always seemed to me like a wannabe hardcore heavy metal band. They came along as young kids at the end of the glam metal trend and then tried to be all serious about it. I HATE rockers who take themselves seriously.
They did improve a little over the years, but they still suck.
They need arse-raping from The Darkness.

Feel Good Inc. IS good, but I like a few others of Gorillaz songs. However their worst song by FAR is “White Light”. Pure crap.

Seeing as the entire vocals consist of the words “White light, doo doo do doo” whispered into a cheap microphone, I'll concur, CSS. All right, I like the bridge, but for the most part, this is the weak link of the Gorillaz' Demon Days album. (To be fair, they had much worse songs on their first, self-titled album– like Starshine and the US-release-only Dracula– but that was with a different producer.)

As for things pertaining to the actual topic… I have a sort of a love-hate relationship with metal. I like Metallica's “Enter Sandman”, but I hate the rest of their mindless drivel. Likewise System Of A Down's “BYOB”. (God dang it, why are these guys still popular?) And I like (not metal band) Del Amitri's Nineties pop hit “Roll To Me”, but the rest of their stuff just seems bland and uninspired.

And then… there's REM.

With REM, you are honestly better off getting their “greatest hits” albums, Eponymous and In Time. These single out their catchiest songs, which you might think would be bad, until you rent a non-greatest-hits CD of theirs from the library like I did. After listening to Up, Document, and Around The Sun on three seperate occasions, I am still not convinced that any of them really hold their own as records– they're more like two or three interesting songs surrounded by twelve tracks of droning guitars and Michael Stipe whining in tongues. When REM is at their best, they can be innovative and wonderful to listen to, but the majority of their work is so homogenously unimpressive (and sometimes even annoying) that it is best left only for committed fans, and not just casual listeners like you and me.

I agree, Ian Jay. I recieved Document from a guy at work and I didn't like it at all. I got their Best Hits for my birthday a while back, and I enjoy that. I admit that I like their “Shiny Happy People” song, that's not on their greatest hits.

I don't like System of a Down. Too… screamish for me. But I do like their song “Chop Suey”. It's just… grown on me.

Also, FalloutBoy's newish hit “Dance, Dance.” I know, I know, FalloutBoy is so… trite and generic right now. I like their first album, but only if I'm in the mood to listen to it. (Which isn't a lot…)

joey ramones verison of “what a wonderful world” has been a fav of mine for awhile (probally just because I'm a fan, RIP joey!)

songs I hate? Many many many things, almost everything on the radio these days…seriously, fall out boy, panic at the disco, greenday, nickleback, the list goes on…they can all rot in hell. As reel big fish would say, don't make a band…

Actually, probally what I think is one of the greatest songs of all time is kind of an album (all the songs are one though, it's like a movie in a song)
Metropolis PT 2: Scenes From A Memory by dream theater…very epic, very well done, although some guitar solos are a bit drawn out.

I hate the lyrics the most…(as well as the repetive ness, those songs don't need to be that long…although yeah I listen to a lot of repetive stuff but it's not 5 minutes long). The actual music is boring and lacks well musical talent or more importantly any emotion behind it. And last off, greenday is a bunch of greedy sell outs, they even say it (not in an admitting way, more of an “we make a lot of money this way, who cares about music” way)

I didn't mind Eminem's ‘Sing for the moment’ or whatever it's called (The 8mile song I think it is. Only ever saw the trailer). Also, I hate black eyed pees, but I really like ‘Let’s get retarded'. Too bad they had to do ‘Let’s get it started'. Not bad, but still

More of a ‘Genres you hated, bands you love’.

I enjoy listening to Reel Big Fish, but when I listened to other SKA bands; I tried, oh so tried, to enjoy it, but alas: I hated it.

It's hard for anyone to like ska. Even ska fans.
Let's see here… Live and Let Die by Paul Mcartney. I used to think he was cool, but now he's a complete ass hole. I liked him better when he was in the Beatles.
