Bands that you think you should like but just can't get in to


Had this conversation at a bar with a buddy last night. We were discussing bands that we should like based on taste and popularity but for some reason just couldn't get in to.

I'll start:

Wilco
Bon Iver
Pearl Jam
Avett Brothers

I'll limit my submission to recommendations from posters on this board, whose musical taste I respect...

I fricking hate the Avett Brothers.

I just can't get into the Black Keys. I've enjoyed a few songs don't get me wrong, but never once have I thought to download or look for more.

Good list.

I'd add Mickey and the Motorcars. I like Reckless Kelly and Cross Canadian Ragweed, but "can't get into" M and the MCs.

I dont mind their songs when I hear them, but nothing Ive ever heard has made me want to buy one of their records...

Is it Mickey's voice or they lyrics? Mickey and Willy co-write the majority of their stuff, and I think all the Brauns sound alike.

That being said, I like Reckless more than M&MC too I do like the Motorcars, just not as much as RK.

That's why I find it weird. They sound just a like.

Phish

I know I should like them and I've really really tried to like them but for the life of me I just can't get into them. I don't hate them but I'm just completely and totally indifferent where they're concerned.

I'm that way with pretty much all jam bands. I like SCI and WP but don't download alot of their music. It's great listening to in person but just doesn't have the same effect when recorded.

White Stripes is another good one, never 'got' Jack White I guess.

The only song they do that I remotely like is the one that sounds like T-Tex's Mambo Sun.
