I have absolutely no interest in the following singers and bands and really can't fathom why they are so popular with other people...  its a mystery......

David Bowie

Complete rubbish to me.....

Feel free to defend them or add your own...

Pet Shop Boys are the one I really can't stand, I mean there are some bands like Queen that I don't like, but I can at least see how some people like their overblown soft rock type rubbish, but the Pet Shop Boys are just a couple of dull blokes with a cheap casio keyboard.

I lkie adele.........i think liking or disliking things is a hard one to argue or weither do or you don't

I love listening to donovan...but i can't tell you why

+1 for Morrissey *shudder*

I've tried, but me and Lou Reed are destined never to see to eye

If Neil Young could refrain for singing ever again I would be a happy bunny (nice tunes and guitarwork I'll give you that, but that voice....)

My radios are mostly tuned to Radio 4 or Planet Rock so I don't get much opportunity to be offended by new stuff.

If it doesn't get whacked out on Fenders and Gibsons plugged into a Marshall stack I don't understand it

How Paul McCartney is still popular is baffling.

19/10/2012 at 17:21

He's not.

19/10/2012 at 17:23

Foo fighters

Not complete rubbish, I just don't see why anyone would get excited by them, just

19/10/2012 at 17:25

The Carpenters.  I mean, really?

Bruce C wrote (see)


+1   pleasant tunes, not my cup of tea, but I don't understand their god-like status

Morrissey is a total knob, but I do like listening to The Smiths

If you really want to make me  and  put on some Proclaimers 

19/10/2012 at 17:26

+1 for the Beatles or anything Paul McCartney related

19/10/2012 at 17:26

Oh and sorry DV, but my absolute fave is Mr Bowie

I'm sorry Seren, I really am but there is something about her voice that makes me want to stick my fingers through my eyeballs and pull my brain out.

Anything to do with hip-hop or what I see is now called 'r'n'b' I just don't understand.

19/10/2012 at 17:35

Abba are shit

Morrissey is shit

Leonard Cohen is dull

Elvis - nope.  never got him.

Queen - live - fantastic. to listen to - annoying. likewise the Stones

Showing my age, but I never really got the Electric Light Orchestra. These days, I don't understand dirgey stuff such as Coldplay and Snow Patrol.

By the by, for a masterly take-off of the Pet Shop Boys....
