I shall have to agree with that. The first album was awesome. The second, decent. The rest has been been pretty much cack, with the odd moment of decency. Maybe tomorrow for instance, was really rather good, Dakota however, is really rather bad.

Quote from: Schmendrick
*sigh* Hanson


You know I forgot they existed 'till you reminded me? Weren't they the blonde kids, with the young one who you could swear was a girl?

=laughs= I totally forgot!

Oh, and on the subject of the Cardigans..
=le blush= Well, I was about eight or ten at the time(or at least had the /mentality/ of an eight or ten year old), so the only Cardigans song I'd /ever/ heard was "love fool". =smiles ruefully= Thanks a /lot/, folks, now you're making me want to go look at the rest of the stuff.

=is anticipating a quite large dent in her wallet in the near future=

Pretty generic stuff here...blink, sum 41, the like. I can also remember enjoying "SR-71", although their album sucked ass save for about four songs.  I'm sure you remember that "why do you always kick me when I'm high" song.

I think those'd be the only ones I could say I "regret"- I may not enjoy bands like offspring or treblecharger today(actually TC has a few good songs if you dig around enough...specifically on "Maybe it's Me"), but I don't really regret listening to them.

I don't know if this is a regret, but I saw Busted a couple of years ago at one of our local Party in the Park things, and they were great, and we all danced...
BUT
 today I got an e-mail confirming that I get to do a phone interview with Charlie Simpson from said band, now better known for the slightly less credible Fightstar, and I sort of squealed with excitement and bounced round the house in sheer jubilation...
I think this means I liked them more than I ever admitted to myself.
But seriously, Charlie. From Busted.
How could anyone not be excited?

I'll just wave goodbye to any inkling of credibilty I may have once imagined having.

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.


Yeah, that's how I feel about it, except the bands I liked were shite.  But I only really started getting into popular music in eighth grade; I liked Evanescence and Michelle Branch.  That sounds a little backwards to me, but hey, I was thirteen.  

The worst ones, though, were 3 Doors Down and... Nickelback.  It's pretty difficult to get worse than those two.

When i was a little kid, I used to like Bon Jovi, then S-Club 7 and the Spice Girls.

Not embarrassed as such, as I only liked them because I don't know anything better, but more amused that i liked such shitty music.

My "gateway band" was the Offspring, then Greenday, and then the almighty Clash got me into better stuff.

No Doubt (but only because of the complete shite gwen stefani is putting out these days), Spice Girls, Creed, Ace of Base, Blink-182, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Will Smith.. *hangs head in shame* at least i can say i never liked anything that came out of that boyband epidemic known as my 6th grade year..

Never thought I would see the day when someone would regret listening to sublime.  

Only thing I can even consider regretting was my rather unfortunate (in my eyes) techno phase.

hey there folks, i can honestly admit that i liked the Insane Clown Posse. im really sorry :(, i only really liked them for their funny music (my fave song of theirs was slim anus (slim anus is a rip off of slim shady))

please dont kill me :(

Man, I still like ICP.  And Twiztid and Marz.  Anybody Killa and Blaze Ya Dead Homie were both fun live.

Out of all of them, Marz was the best.  He used to be the guitar player for Ministry, then started a weird gangsta rap/industrial-ish band.  He's also cool because his birth name is Zlatko Hukic.  ZLATKO HUKIC!

Pictures exist of my friends and I wearing juggalo make-up before heading to a Twiztid concert.  I have extremely fond memories of that night.  It ended with us sitting in a camper and getting incredibly stoned.

Quote from: rynne
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.
quote]

yes, i love blur. and pulp. aND (typo) prodigy. and many other songs that have been dissed in this thread- but that's the point! everyone has different tastes- and i love it.

I don't regret this, but it certainly is embarrassing- HANSON.

i have 2 cds, an autobiography, and a video. AND i had a massive thing for Zac, the drummer. strange thing was, i looked exactly like him... proves how girly they were, and what i tom-boy i was!

Theres a lot of bands I used to like, but no longer any more: Marilyn Manson, blink, limp bizkit, green day, the offspring. But its not that I no longer like their old stuff, cause I still do. I can go back and listen to "Kerplunk" from Green Day or "Portait of an American Family" or "Antichrist Superstar" and still love it. I just dont like where these bands progressed musically. I would not be embarrassed to put on "3 Dollar Bill, Y'all" and rock the fuck out, because its an extremely raw and powerful album, whether you like it or not. But did I bother to waste my time on "Chocolate Starfish" or whatever limp bizkit called thier album? No. Good god know.

Wes Borland rocks.

The only thing I can think of that I am actually embarrassed about liking, that If I went back and listened to the stuff I used to like and go "Oh good god, this is terrible", would be Vanilla Ice and TLC. There might be a couple others, if I thought long and hard about it, but I stand firmly behind most everythign I used to listen to, passed the age of 12 (I think Vanilla Ice and TLC might even fall into the age 11 range).

I still have The Sign. I also have Haddaway's album (the 2nd version) and some stuff by Real McCoy and 2 Unlimited. I still lurve my early 90's dance music.

I think the only band that I could say I regret having liked was Creed. I saw the light shortly after Weathered was released as to how awful a band they were.

But, honestly, you can't tell me that the first time you heard Bullets (off of Weathered), you didn't say "Whoa, that's some decent rock right the....wait, that's Creed? Huh."

Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer.... also... Ace of Base, Spice Girls, hmm....  even Limp Bizkit....

I don't really regret liking them, but I'm glad I've moved on to much better things.  If I heard any of their songs now, I'd probably yell really loud and sing along.  No, I'm not ashamed.  Its part of who I am... besides, I have such a crazy taste in music I'll listen to almost anything.  This morning I was listening to Gwen Stefani's album.  ^_^

then I bought Morningview by Incubus

It's not really a regret, as I still do love and/or like a lot of their material, but I'm kinda embarrased nowadays how much I used to like Cradle of Filth and Dimmu Borgir. Even, like, the totally uncool albums. They did both lead me to much greater things though. Especially when I started checking out all the other bands members and past members had been in.

That said, 'Puritania' and 'Scorched Earth Erotica' are on my big old faves playlist, and there they will stay!
