Countering BobK's thread, what artists DON'T you appreciate?

Maybe I'm an ass, or maybe not quite old enough to appreciate "The Groundbreaking", but I don't see what's amazing about the Beatles. They wrote some catchy songs, and I very much like the Love mix, but I don't hear what's amazing.

Bob Dylan can't sing.

I didn't see anything extraordinary about Nirvana or Kurt Cobain.

I'll add more as the thread takes off with other curmudgeons' opinions.

The Rolling Stones come to mind, never did like them.

I am with you on this one Mark. The only Beatles cd I own is Abbey Road. While I do enjoy the Beatles music from time to time, I don't have a strong desire to listen to it. Same with Nirvana. With age I have grown to appreciate some of Bob Dylan's music although I don't own any cd's. Different music tastes I suppose.

Ooh, I'm pretty close to being with you on that one, wid. There's a few songs, but not many.

I agree with The Grateful Dead and the Rolling Stones.

I disagree on The Beatles and Nirvana.

I add Prince and Duran Duran.

Rap, all of it, even drunk.

Pop, all of it, even drunk.

Country, most of it, need to be drunk for some of it.

Oh, you wanted specifics. How about Vanilla Ice? Never understood the allure that the Dead had on so many, but I never did do hallucinogenics either.

I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.
