Took the 45 in for music day in 5th grade at my Catholic grade school in 1980. It actually made it onto the record player. If you think penguins can't fly, you should have seen the nun rushing to turn it off.

I second this sentiment. While I certainly wouldn’t say I hate the Beatles, neither would I say I like their music. Their early stuff is saccharine pop music and once they started taking drugs and stuff it got weird and stupid. I can’t imagine anyone who’s not on drugs liking the song “Come Together,” for example.

I always imagined you hitting the hookah and slapping on your vintage cop shades, before posting here.

You may not enjoy listening to it, but claiming that the Beatles' music is nothing special is objectively wrong.

Come Together, of all songs... Christ.

How can Sid be at the Madonna concert if he's still in the NHL-NHLPA meeting?

i really like Flo Rida for some reason. as a Caucasian in his early to mid 30's, i can't imagine i'm in his demographic. but "Club Can't Handle Me" is a really good song. screw you guys. i also can't really hate Ke$ha because she is so dumb to take seriously.

as far as what's bad...

black eyed peas
maroon 5
lady gaga (not nearly as edgy as she thinks she is)
pit bull
bruno mars

i don't listen to really any current pop music, so i don't have any other opinions.

i really don't like much classic rock, either. i think led zep is particularly annoying.

You've mentioned this before and I'm just curious - is it Bobby's voice, the comparitive simplicity of the songs, or something else? I was always more of a Hunter/Garcia fan myself, and never really cared for John Perry Barlow, but I do appreciate most of Bobby's work.


Combination of a few factors. It's not the songs themselves, necessarily. I think Jerry and especially Pigpen's best playing came out in his songs. I just genuinely dislike his voice, hate Donna Jean (who tended to be more noticeable during his songs) and found the standard traveling songs to be too formulaic. Every song was the same idea and feel, like mad libs with a different town name and protagonist. That's not to say I hate all of his songs or skip them when they come on. I absolutely love Truckin, Estimated Prophet, Samson and Delilah, And Sugar Magnolia. I personally just prefer Jerry's songs and thought Weir singing took away from Pigpen as well, who I prefer when it comes to bluesy numbers.

Any pop song in the last 15 years... or ever pretty much.

That covers a vast majority.

Got another one.

Gloria Estefan - Conga.

Fricken' Conga, man. I like Latin music, but that one annoys the hell out of me.

I only get 107.9 here at work and listen to XM radio and sports talk in the car, so I don't really know what the popular songs on mainstream radio are now.

Some of my all time least favorite popular songs though from the past are:


Norah Jones: Sunrise

Crash Test Dummies: MMMMM MMMM MMMM

Those Little Gay Kids: Oom Bop

Soundgarden: Black Hole Sun


Chris Cornell is a God....how dare you!
