    For me it's Bruce Springsteen. Just can't get into him, I get lambasted all the time by my friends for not joingin the band wagon, but just don’t care for his music. I think he's a terrible guitar player to boot. It’s must be his persona – he always acts like he’s some little tough dude from NJ. (I guess now he’s some little old guy from NJ.)

    Oh, and read the title - it ain't all about defending everyones decision that you don't care for. It's "Bands we don't like". Everyone has an opinion.

    For me it's Nirvana... in middle school, I loved Nirvana, but I think it was the angry teen in me. Now, I find a lot of Kurt's ramblings somewhat whiny.

    Could never get into Elvis Costello. His famous wife is equally bad. The Eagles are a very close second.

    Grateful Dead

    I always thought Bob Marley's music was universally loved by all...weird

    anywho,

    Springsteen. I seriously, seriously, seriously don't get it not one bit
    Pink Floyd
    Nirvana
    Tupac
    Coldplay

    I'm sure there's more bands that most folks like that I don't care for...

    Not defending him, but I've never once gotten that vibe from him...hmmm. Always came off as a beat-poet initially, like a Jersey-Dylan or somthing, through Nebraska, then as a flat out Root-rocker Born to Run and on...but never chip on his shoulder-ish...


    As for me, the list would be endless, I kinda don't see the point of this thread, and it should be in Misc.

    You're missing out on a lot of good music and basslines just so you know...

    For the record, I used to hate most those bands, and I'm still not a big fan of Zeppelin, but they all have some really grooving stuff.

    Beatles
    Rush

    Never have and never will like them.
    I admit they are good musicians but I do not care for their music.

    Never got the Beatles. Love XTC who more often than not nod to the Beatles. Glad they like them.

    Rush (respect them as musicians, can't stand the music)
    Dream Theater (see above)
    Tupac (poser, though I gotta admit I love that one California Love song, it had a cool video)
    Dragonforce (While everyone I knew were going crazy for them, I couldn't stand em.' Even before it came out they were really talentless hacks who couldn't even play their own songs)
    Primus (see #'s 1 & 2, got mad respect for Les as a human and musician, but the music just doesn't click for me)
    Tool (respect what they do, and admit there are a few songs I don't mind if I've been into some of the "green stuff," but really just too... meh.)

    I never liked Bruce Springsteen either. Don't get it, the image or the music, both uninteresting to me.

    This, this, 1,000,000 times this. I can't believe I forgot them. Pretty much the musical equivalent of putting thumbtacks into my ears.
    U2 makes me angry whenever I hear them, even before they were on South Park.
