Songs you HATE by artists you LOVE
« on: July 24, 2017, 12:30:40 PM »
I saw this on reddit a couple years ago and thought it was a funny topic.  Non-U2.  I'll kick it off:

I hate both "Sledgehammer" and "Steam", but I love Peter Gabriel.

I hate "Losing My Religion" by REM.  A paint by numbers REM that is heard everywhere and is not their best moment.

It's like the Stonehenge scene in spinal tap...metal had gotten so into mythology that it became a parody of itself.

This is an acceptable answer.  "Hate" is a strong word, but neither of those even approach his best work.  Unfortunately, Sledgehammer has become one of his few "must play" songs, so you hear it at EVERY. SHOW.

Steal away!!

The one i love always brings a smile to my face and highlights how daft the masses often are when it comes to music as there are stories of how it has down the years often been used as a wedding dance song!...

Brilliant.
