    Top Bands that Music Snobs like to Bag on

    Thread in honor of Guiss;

    What are the all-time top musical acts that "discriminating music afficianados" love to publically hate on. I'll go ahead and throw out the low hanging fruit (asterisk* denotes bands that I will admit to liking/owning cd at one time):

    -Coldplay
    -Nickelback
    -Hootie*
    -Creed
    -Warrant*
    -Winger
    -Pat Boone
    -Manilow

    Eminem, when he is actually probably one of the most talented guys to come down the pipe in over a decade.

    Limp Bizkit (they're horrible)
    Linkin Park (WORSE than horrible)


    I really want to start another thread for bands that got the reputation of being great even though they sucked, like U2, Foo Fighters, and Bruce Springsteen

    Its a great experience seeing them play. It was a good atmosphere. The fans stood up the whole game and never sat down. They have a great fan base.

    Trent Reznor is one of the most overrated dudes in in the industry by the music snob sect.

    But so far he has been smart enough to surround himself with talent and allow them to do their thing. That, in essence, is the difference between DMB and NIN.

    The hipster will hate on anything that gets popular enough. In my college years it was the dreaded "boy band" and rightfully so.

    I'll add John Mayer to the list. It's pretty cool not to think he's cool, I guess. Sting, maybe?

    I like some of the groups listed above. Some I hate. No accountin' for taste as they say.

    Not necessarily. For example, Radiohead is much more popular than most of the bands we are hating on here. When music is no good and gets played all the time, however, it makes you hate it even more.

    That guy is a good guitar player, though. And a lot of very well respected guitar players would be the first ones to tell you that. But he did write alot of love ballads, though. Which, after universal popularity, is the second most prolific way to get music snobs to hate you.

    Talent and taste. It takes both to be good.
