I'd have to say "Five Years' Time" by Noah And The Whale.  It's very obscure anglo-rock only available as a download from the record company.

What I think he is trying to say is that extreme metal is innacessible and crap.

Judging by the popularity of it, that is probably not the case.

And guys, seriously, Pink Floyd innaccessible? I think you guys need to calm down.

YOU HAVE NOT UPLOADED 'ENTER THE MITHRAIC STARGATE' YET. :?

Really?

I guess the Jandek records all have an atypical recording setup but otherwise I don't think his music is especially hard to "get".

Didn't he do a whole bunch of albums with just him singing, no accompaniment?

I think what Tommy is getting at is, why in the world would you do something like that?

Scott Walker's The Drift is damn near impossible to get your head around.  The Metacritic reviews sorta hint at its bizarreness; saying it’s nightmarish operatic art-rock gives a general idea of its genre, but doesn't come close to conveying how alienating it really is. 

I find The Drift more difficult to digest than stuff like Merzbow or Metal Machine Music, ‘cause with noise, there’s at least the option of turning your brain off and appreciating the music as pure (physical?) experience.  No such luck with The Drift, which demands intellectual engagement but---simultaneously---is so obscure as to defy almost all analysis.

The entire Abruptum discography.

Having only heard a couple tracks of it on someone else's itunes, I can only imagine so.

Bucket Full of Teeth, a studio-only noisecoreish band with a bunch of dudes from Orchid in it, are pretty hard to get into on their full length IV , but then again I liked it like two years ago, so maybe it's not so weird, since I still don't really 'get' White 2.

Trout Mask Replica is a good bet for most inaccessible album that the majority of relatively informed rock fans have heard of.

Because wrestling is hilariously dumb, but hilariously entertaining.

And this particular case, I like watching a toned blonde touch herself provactively.

i'm going with lightning bolt, les georges leningrad and maybe venetian snares... at first they're just bizarre, however especially in the latter's case, i've grown to learn to listen to them only when i'm in the right mood, otherwise the noise just irritates me.
