I'm not afraid to admit that I liked the first Candlebox album! Granted, I was a 13-14-year-old kid who had Seattle fever and would digest anything with long hair and angst-ridden lyrics (aka their target audience) but I still say there were some good songs on that first album.

Turn it around into a "what are you embarrassed to have in your music collection" thing.

Uhhhmm. Some Creed. Some Hinder. And a genuinely shocking/horrifying amount of Nickelback.





You know, everyone says it's not supposed to make sense, like that's the whole point, dude. And I'm just saying, you know, that's like an excuse for lazy storytelling. Just don't sell me shite and tell me it's gold, all right? I might be stoned, but I'm not high. You know what I mean?

Oh boy, we could have several field days with this one. I have plenty that would be embarrassing, but I'll start with...

...Savage Garden's first album. I'd like to say it's just because girls love it, but there are some surprisingly good songs on it. Goodbye, metal cred.

Oh my God. I think we're all going to have to ban ourselves.

I never owned one of their albums but I once liked Creed as a straight-up RAWK! antidote to the rap-rock that was getting increasingly annoying circa '99-'00.

We can give them shit all we want for the quality of their lyrics or their overall pretentious presentation but at least guys like Scott Stapp and Chad Kroeger have the voices for rock n roll. Beats the sort of godawful fucking shit, even if the guitar/bass/drums still sound sort of rock-like, that's been coming out ever since some feeble-voiced freak like Jack White got so inexplicably popular about ten years ago.

So you want your rock and roll to sound like Cher?

And if you like something, you like something. Being embarrassed about the music you like and enjoy is silly. In high school I had a carrying case for my disc man (which was so cool...ah, the 90's) and my friend lost her mine when she asked what I had in it. The answer? Van Halen - Best of Volume 1; Spice Girls - Spice; and Marilyn Manson - Antichrist Superstar. She was convinced that no one person should like all of those records, let alone own all 3. I just shrugged and went on with my day.

More recently I had a friend go though my iTunes library and expressed his hatred that I had every one of Selena Gomez's albums, but no NIN. I put on the Misfits and drowned out his whining.

As for songs you hate by artist you love...Coldplay - Yellow. Terrible song, and I've purchased every Coldplay cd except the first one. Just a god awful song with one of the worst videos ever.

Man...my CD collection has so much crap in it...I would probably win this contest or if not be top 3.

I have...

The first 3 CD's by Debbie Gibson. Only in my dreams, baby!
Culture Club's Greatest Hits
Gerardo's first one (or only one?) Rico Suave!
Vanilla Ice's first one. Ice Ice Baby!
A shit ton of glam hair "metal" including Great White, White Lion, Whitesnake (or Great While Lionsnake as my friends refer to that trifecta), Slaughter, Cinderella, Faster Pussycat, Warrant, Winger...list goes on and on although I am very proud of this portion of my collection
A bunch of Pat Benatar
The Nickelback one that has the old Raw theme on it
KC and the Sunshine Band Greatest Hits
Adam Ant/and the Ants - a bunch
Bananarama - a bunch
Spandau Ballet Greatest Hits
Psuedo Echo

I'm a product of the 80's and early 90's so if it was popular then regardless of genre, I probably have it.

This. It's hard to explain or quantify my love of Dokken, but I still listen to most of their albums, even the ones after their peak.

I also just spent 40 dollars to see Queensryche.

Todd Latorre version or Geoff Tate version?

I like way more Lady Gaga than any straight male should.

I hate all "butt rock" bands (i.e. All That Remains, Five Finger Death Punch, et. al.) but Halestorm has quite a few catchy tunes. They do butt rock right.

And agreed that hair metal is nothing to scoff at! I saw Bret Michaels' solo band last Friday night and that dude and his wig can still BRING IT!

Of course they are, and you are too... otherwise, you wouldn't have come here.

Tate. The guy's a douche for what he's done, but they were playing Mindcrime in its entirety and he's the voice. The new band sounded pretty great, honestly.

The new Latorre album? It's not half-bad, and certainly miles better than anything past Promised Land. I'd like DeGarmo back, though.

Here's a pic:

This, too. It helps that Halestorm has a hot girl singing like Pat Benatar. Their cover of "Slave to the Grind" is terrible, though. Those other bands are awful, agreed.

Since this has pretty much morphed into a discussion of 90's music...did anyone else love Letters To Cleo? I bought all two of their albums.

Ah, yes. I remember "Here and Now." Not my favorite, but very catchy and never got switched off the radio when it came on. Also, it's very easy to learn to play.

Here's another one: Urge Overkill.

This was pretty much my only exposure to Urge Overkill but goddamn I love this song and they made their mark on one of the greatest films ever so good on them.

Here's one of Urge's hits from the era (maybe the only one). I always liked them - they've got a little Cheap Trick to their sound.

Add Positive Bleeding onto the list and you've got the trio of the only songs UO did that were worth listening to.

I dunno - I thought Saturation was a damned solid album. Everything else from UO was pretty questionable, though. Critics pretty much savaged them on sight for not being mopey and angry like the popular bands of the day, but a little glam never hurt anybody. STP kind of ripped them off on their third album (not coincidentally, the album of theirs I liked the best).

Anyone ever notice that sometimes a band's signature song turns into something that can't be tolerated? I mentioned it earlier with Iron Maiden's Run To The Hills. I'd also add things in like GNR's Welcome To The Jungle, Nivana's Smells Like Teen Spirit, or Rush's Tom Sawyer. I'd probably live/die/kill/eat/fuck/shit for all of those bands but sometimes when they're official Most Greatest Song starts playing I have to turn it off ASAP. I put it down to the bullshit effect that commercial FM radio has on things. Take GNR as an example. I figure they've got at least a dozen to twenty other songs besides Welcome To The Jungle that I'd rather hear. Thanks to corporate franchise FM radio when one hears a GNR song it's likely, like nine times out of ten, to be WTTJ. If not it's then either Sweet Child Of Mine or Paradise City which have also been overplayed so much over the years to be almost unlistenable.

I know it all comes down to personal taste but holy fuck does the radio ever do a number on some songs by literally playing them to death. I know I'd mark out at a concert to hear Rush play Tom Sawyer live but when it's on the radio it's pretty much change the channel ASAP. They talk about newspapers dying out thanks to modern technology. It's be pretty damn good if the same sort of effect, either thru Sirius or people using Sync/USB systems to play their own things as they wanted, happened to FM radio. Radio when I was younger turned me into the music fan I am today. I don't know if they got worse or if I just got too old but now I can't even listen to it anymore thanks to some of the stupid things they keep doing.





You know, everyone says it's not supposed to make sense, like that's the whole point, dude. And I'm just saying, you know, that's like an excuse for lazy storytelling. Just don't sell me shite and tell me it's gold, all right? I might be stoned, but I'm not high. You know what I mean?
