Oh, yes. /Everyone/ has them--those records, tapes, or CDs hidden under everything else, that you /insist/ you never liked, but oh----you /did/.



=winces= I was such a pop whore when I was little.

The Backstreet boys(yeah,I know, retch), and I bought into the Spice Girls craze, and Aqua. Can't forget Aqua.

And I just remembered the cardigans! Anyone remember who they are? =sings= Love me, love me, say that you love me....

I used to like a few nu-metal bands, simply because, really, I hadn't heard anything better. Once I graduated on to the real thing, which those had been a watered down version of, I was totally sold, and have never looked back. One of my friends also once pressured me so much that I actually bought a Funeral for a Friend CD. Eugh.

See, my lovely friend Age never regretted(or stopped) liking Aqua. A week ago, he shoved his MP3 player at me and said, "listen".


Every freaking song on the whole thing was...oh yeah, Aqua. They've been re-stuck in my head ever since. It's /awful/.

Any version of "Ugly Girl">Aqua

"I'm an ugly girl, my face makes you hurl,
Sad I have it, I should bag it!
Acne everywhere, unwanted facial hair.
I'm a relation to Frankensteins creation."

Also, Rammsteins cover of Barbie Girl. Brilliance.

Oasis, Blur, Pulp, The Bouncing Souls, Mad Caddies, Guttermouth, Less Than Jake, Pitchshifter, Ocean Colour Scene, Rage Against The Machine, System of A Down, Bentley Rhythm Ace, The Prodigy, Vanilla Pod and a host of others.

I'm not embarrassed about my musical past at all and I don't even think all of these bands are bad by any means, but I now feel like I wasted time and money on them which would have been more productively spent elsewhere had someone only pointed me in the right direction earlier.

Well like I said some of them aren't bad at all. I still spin Less Than Jake, Mad Caddies, Pulp and the Bouncing Souls now and again, and since it's summer coming they'll all probably be getting their annual dust-off soon enough. It's just that I had very little money to spend on records when I was younger, and I wish it had been going on people like the Minutemen or Swing Kids who I didn't hear until years later.

Yah, totally understood. Bouncing Souls are great, and Pulp's fun too. I'm kinda the same, I wish I had bought more signifant records, especially when I was  bit younger and was getting into some of the stuff I listen to now.

I think I'm still in that "I'm listening to crap music but don't know it yet" stage, only 'cause I'm sixteen, and that's what sixteen-year-olds do; listen to whatever everyone else around them is listening to.


Hence my recent love for J-pop and J-rock.

Don't be so down on yourself. When I was sixteen my favourite bands were Fugazi and the Dead Kennedys and at 22 they still are, so you might find yourself still rocking to a lot of the same things yourself six years down the line.

Actually, I'm now getting a big urge to go find 'Different Class' and the self-titled Bouncing Souls album and get them on.

Marilyn Manson --

Brian Warner is a really smart and artistic guy.  He has an interesting point of view and tends to draw parallels between strange things.  This often gets overlooked though because of things like "OMG HE SUCKS HIS OWN DICK"

Musically it's bland and tepid industrial rock.

Ah, there are worse bands out there than ICP. My old high school smoking buddies used to love them. I've still got 'Nothin' But A Bitch Thang' somewhere on my computer I think, I downloaded it so they'd have something to giggle to while caning at my house. For some reason my normal choices of Captain Beefheart and the Stooges never went down too well.

I, um...
I still really like the Barbie Girl song.

I also used to be a huge pop fan (shortly after my hardcore Guns n Roses phase) and LOVED Take That, PJ and Duncan and The Spice Girls. I was embarassed about it for a little after it, then I realised that I like so many terrible bands now, that a little thing like a Take That phase sort of pales into insignificance.

Offspring. erm, I think thats it, most of the CDs I bought I still find listenable now. Oh, erm, Greenday, I bought Warning , which was total dross. Still like Dookie though.  There was also an embarassing Chris Rea phase when I was about 12, but I don't like to talk about that.

Due to having been skint for such an absurdly long time I've not bought any CDs for ages, most of my stuff is downloaded. Soon though, soon I will have money, then I shall be bulk purchasing all the albums I've already got and feel are worth buying.

I very much regret liking lots of oh so dodgy dance bands when i went through my mini clubber phase. Oh, and quite a lot of cheesy Japanese pop/rock when i first discovered anime. I think i taped the first Linkin Park album off a friend too.

It's quite strange that my taste in music was a lot better when i was much younger, rather then when i was 10-15 years old.

Brittany! You need to PM me your address for the CD trade!

I always get this feeling that HIM would be tolerable, if everytime you listened to them, you didn't get this mental image of a 14 year old girl in clothing covered in heartagrams going on about how cute Ville Valo is. (or is that just me?)

I mean, members of HIM are in a grindcore band with members of Cathedral and Amorphis. That's cred.

I can't believe--especially on an indie-related board--that people regret liking Blur and the Cardigans.

Aside from a mistep or two (Leisure and The Great Escape), Blur evolves in an interesting way on each album, and even the misteps are chock full of great pop songs.

And the Cardigans' Gran Turismo is hands-down a great album.  IMO, it’s the best trip-hop-influenced pop record made.  (Note: not the best trip-hop album made, though).

Personally, I don't regret liking anything.  There are certainly things that I liked when I was younger that I'd be embarrassed to listen to now (all sorts of by-the-numbers industrial acts, for example), but I don't regret having liked them at the time.

I think Blur dated rather badly. And interesting evolution... well, not to me. They changed their sound, sure, but not in particularly innovative or compelling ways. And Albarn's voice is, let's face it, pretty weak.

I'll start this post by saying that I don't really regret liking anything.  I wouldn't get rid of my old CDs now, hey maybe I'll even get back into them someday.  This is just about what I was into at some time in the past, and am not into now.

One of my friends back when I was much younger and lived in Canada was a really massive Aerosmith fan, so I bought their Big Ones compilation.  For the most part I was not enthusiastic about music until I was about thirteen or fourteen, so they were quite frankly almost the only rock band I knew and I listened to that one CD in a fairly dedicated fashion for quite a few years.  I'll give them credit for that.  The only other rock bands that I exposed myself to until I was fourteen were The Beatles and Green Day - I still enjoy a couple of Beatles albums and Dookie.  Anyone among us who still likes Dookie should check out the first two albums, particularly Kerplunk which reminds me of Dookie but with a more solemn attitude and a slightly wider variety of music and musical ideas.

If I could go back in time, I would have gone to meet me at the age of fourteen (when I got into the Quake Soundtrack) and told him to buy whatever Coil and Nurse With Wound was available while he still could instead of sticking with the rock that I grew familiar with when I started listening to other Nine Inch Nails music.  Instead I decided to "branch out" into other rock music as well as Nine Inch Nails and as a result I have heard every album from Foo Fighters, Coldplay, and System Of A Down despite never really getting into most of their music.  I also feel that if I had got into Coil and Nurse With Wound quickly I wouldn't have gone for Foetus before then, who grew stale very quickly apart from the rather quirky first album.

Another band that I went for in an uninformed way was Godspeed You!  Black Emperor.  At first I thought that they were beyond criticism but the more instrumental music I heard, the more shallow they sounded to me.

I second the remark about people dislking Blur, for they are rather awesome. Theres a Cardigans remix I've been hutning for but just cannot find anywhere, it's acutally been so long now that I don't even know which one it is.

Oh and slagging on the Stereophonics is also wrong and bad, first albums amazing.

meh, I can see an argument developing here so I'll leave it at that, music isn't something that that you can be particularly objective about (for the most part anyway).
