I almost don't even think this qualifies as an opinion. More like a statement of absolute fact.

Pi == Circumference/Diameter
Mass == Force*Acceleration
The Eagles == a terrible band

SRV fluctuates between 2 and 4 on my list. It all depends on how I'm feeling about Jimi and Clapton at the time.


But honestly the top 4 of Duane, Jimi, SRV and Clapton are totally interchangeable without drawing much complaint from me

Incredibly boring. With as much trash as there is out there, I just can't go with terrible. If it were playing in the background, I would not be happy about it, but it also would not make me angry like having to hear Hits 1 or the Pulse or anything popular from the last 20 years or so.

Hmmm.... I think any fan of rap would be hypocritical to state such a thing.

I see Radiohead as the opposite of rap... the anti-rap, if you will. Somber, moody, brooding, defensive versus uptempo, angry, aggressive.

Fair enough. It isn't Nickelback or Polka...but it isn't good.

In the entire music universe, there does exist a subset of music that:
a) Is highly innovative. Like totally groundbreaking,
2) Is the brainchild and design of an undeniable genius.
3) Is played/performed by undeniably talented musicians, and
4) Isn't any good.

This is Radiohead.

I don't like the Eagles, either. Used to, but not anymore. They don't age well. And Don Henley is the most full of horse manure songwriter that ever was.

Second band I think of under that criteria is Mars Volta.

I concur. Aside from Creep I dislike very radiohead song I've ever heard. And from my understanding they aren't very proud of Creep.

It's like the musical equivalent of giving oneself a blowjob.

ETA - I love the first half of Radiohead's career.

Nirvana, musically, was nothing special at all. No better than most garage/bar bands doing the same type of music.


I know its an opinion but I got to argue this: Nirvana heavily influenced the alternative rock landscape of the 90s and made alt rock/grunge popular. They did make pretty simple songs though. But I havent heard any bar/garage band create the songs that Nirvana has. I think Nirvana was pretty special at the time but again this is MO.

There are a handful of Beatles songs that I think are okay. For example, Hey Jude is, imho, a good but nto great song.

But I'm not kidding or trolling when I say that I don't think any of their songs are great. I really don't.

I think Imagine would be their best song if it were a Beatles song.


While I completely disagree with your opinion on The Beatles, I can at least see where you're coming from. There are several bands/artists that are widely regarded as "great" that do nothing for me. Probably the most notable is Jimi Hendrix. I just don't care for his music, outside of a couple of songs.

Just curious, you have heard While My Guitar Gently Weeps right?
