Musical Pet Peeves

I figured we should come up with a compendium of things that just drive us up the wall, when it comes to bands or albums or tours or whatever. The idea hit me when I was listening to the new A Perfect Cirle album.

I can't stand when an album has one song that I could listen to for days and not get bored of, but the rest of it totally sucks ass. In this case, the only song I dig is the first single off the album. Everything else is tripe.

I hate any band who wears lots of pleather.

I hate guitarists whose solos are nothing more than the vocal melodies. I'm talking to you, Weezer.

I hate angry chick rockers who whimper at the end of every note. I'm talking to you, Ani DiFranco.

I hate rappers who claim to be the "real" thugs, whereas all the rest are just rich kids who try to "front." I'm talking to you, 50 Cent.

I hate bands that treat mental illness like it's a really cool thing.

I hate any band that wears chain mail.

I hate drummers who bust a solo at the end of every song when they play live.

I hate drum 'n' bass MCs. They all need to be shot in the face.

I hate DJs who can't scratch. If they can't scratch, they aren't musicians.

I hate Phish fans. Baths, anyone?

I hate punk rock's ability to make 13 year old kids think they're social activists.

I hate bands that never really use their bassist for anything other than following the rhythm guitarist.

I hate indie rock's ability to evoke pomposity in its listeners.

I hate Ticketmaster.

I hate when bands re-relase their CD two months later, with a bunch of cool bonus tracks and videos or something.

I hate when lead singers announce the name of every song they're about to play during a show. I especially hate when they scream it.

I hate any musical group whose live shows have any choreography to them.

I hate Meatloaf.

I hate when rock bands have DJs and never use them.

I hate excessive choruses in songs. I'm talking to you, Dido.



More to come.

I hate it when a guitar string breaks and slices me.

I hate getting my fingers hit with a drumstick (that soooo fuckin' hurts)

I hate restringing my guitar

I hate when a drum head breaks.

I hate when equipment malfunctions.

I hate when the fire gets out of control during a show.

I hate getting banned from clubs.

I hate 'rock star types' who think they own the world, and you.

i'm with anti on the hating of ticket master, bands that don't use their bass players right, excessive use of chorus, meatloaf, pomposity of indie rock listeners, and rappers who "front."

i hate it when people talk shit about other types of music but there's no way in hell they could ever do anything so cool, fred durtz i'm talking to you

i hate it when every single song on a cd sounds exactly the same

i hate it when bands rip off riffs from other songs and try and pass it off as their own, vanilla ice...

i hate hate hate pop covers of songs that were great. i have a long list. don't get me started.

i hate vomit voice. some people can pull it off but for the most part it just bugs me.

i hate it when one instrument has their levels turned up waaaaay too high and it all but drowns out the other instruments.

i hate nasal singers. oh my god they make me want to claw something out of someone somewhere...(the vast majority of emo, i'm talking to you)

i hate overly shrill guitars. yes you can play a high F but for the love of god don't sit there and bend it for 20 minutes. that shit's irritating.

i hate it when songs have great verses and then fall flat at the chorus or vice versa.

i hate boring bass lines

i hate it when people sing flat (who ever sings that "uh oh" song is a perfect example, that woman is always like half an accidental right under her note it makes my skin crawl)

i seriously dislike quite a bit of house. not all of it but the really really pop stuff bugs the hell outa me.

i hate bands/artists that take themselves too seriously (although i like her tori amos...)

i hate music videos that are nothing but clips of live shows or just the band playing to a fish eye lense camera

there's more but they're a bit lost at the moment

I'm fine with metal, but I like to know what the fuck they're saying when I listen to it. With some bands they sing too wild and incoherently that you can't even tell what they're saying. That's pretty much it. Can't think of much else right now... I'll post if I do. Heh.
