No one...let me repeat, NO ONE, with the POSSIBLE exception of pre-pubescent girls, should like Taylor Swift!

Ok, on with my list:

Journey-LOVED their early stuff, but Steve Perry "gayed" them up
Bon Jovi
Rush-I keep hearing that I should love them, but I don't get it
REM
U2-love their early stuff, up until "Boy". That's about when Bono started taking himself WAY too seriously
VanHalen-I find it hard to take Dave seriously
Beatles
Tom Petty
Genesis-after Gabriel left

Sammy is who I was referring too, but Gary too. Some of the old stuff is OK, but the rest I just don't Care for.

LOL! That's the whole point about Dave! You're not supposed to take him seriously!

And man I like Gary Cherone with Extreme, but his VH album was AWFUL!

For Christ's sake I wish Eddie would just record some sort of instrumental guitar album. F the singers.

I was going to add REM to my list since someone else mentioned them, but then I realized that there was actually no reason that SHOULD like them!

I could make a long list of bands for you but that wasn't really my point. The idea that all music since 1990 sucks is like saying all breweries started since 1990 suck. Its just silly, and wrong.
If you are genuinely interested tell me what genre of music you listen to most and I will add to your listening pleasure. Unless of course its country or top 40, because almost all of that IS crap.

I doubt the object of this thread is to delve into hidden jems of music, but to highlight well-known and respected bands that somehow fail to impress us. The 90's bands I was referring to were the bands that everyone would have heard of. I.E. popular music.

For the life of me I just can't think of any that were worth noting. I realize there is a huge underground music industry with some very interesting bands, but frankly I don't care to poke around hunting for them. The "Industry" ought to be doing that for us. But they aren't, which is why I vote to shut them all down. The crap that is spewing out, for the most part, today is not worth listening to. Yeah, there are a couple of songs now and again that I think are catchy, but as a whole I just can't stand to tune into the modern music stations.

So which popular bands from the 90s on were worth adoring?

Pearl Jam

Soundgarden

The Black Crowes

The White Stripes (very late 1990s)

Green Day (not my favorite, but they rock)

All, of course, submitted for your rejection. As a kid born in 1980, I feel like the rock in the 1990s was pretty good, though it was a marked turn away from guitar gods and arena rock in a lot of ways. Also, by the end of the decade, Napster and the internet were decentralizing rock music in particular- the best bands now don't get a lot of mainstream radio play, but I'd put groups like The Arcade Fire on the more recent list as well. The Industry may be abandoning rock, but don't blame the bands.

I can agree with Pearl Jam for an album or two. And I like Green Day, except I am not fond of the turn they've taken recently.

The rest I like a song or two from, but none of them I would consider bands that I ought to like, mostly due to the fact that they didn't have enough success to show their work. White Stripes sound is actually pretty good to me, but I don't know enough about them to form the opinion that I *ought* to like them. Maybe if they had a few more hits?

Oh, while I'm thinking of it, JIMI... This is if I had to base my opinion on his popular tunes. He had a blues album of his that really showed his talent. But except for Little Wing, I'm not a fan. It could be that I think his vocals are very bad.

You've gotta love Hendrix for the direction he took the guitar. No one else came close to what he did at that point. IMO, the most important electric guitar players ever were Les Paul and Hendrix.

Collective Soul

I am not saying they are terrible or anything, I just don't like their music and can't understand how they became so popular.

Uh oh, are you going to change the topic to who was the best/most important guitar player ever? I am not going to touch that one being a guitar player myself.
