Disregarding (as usual) whatever rad said, I agree.

I must admit... I find them decent as well. And yet I hate them. Because they're ALWAYS just decent, and boring. And my high school band teacher liked them. And they're way too fucking popular.

So Nyeah.

i too dislike Radiohead, but they must be doing something right since so many people love them.

I'm not a huge fan, but I think The Bends and OK Computer are fantastic albums. I can understand why some people dislike their music, but I don't get how anyone can truly hate them. When you think about all the shit that's filling the charts these days, I think most people would agree that a band like Radiohead actually deserve a decent record label.

I hate them slightly less than Coldplay if that's a consolation.

GAH! that's even worse...

Sure, Coldplay are pretty boring and unoriginal... But at least they actually make music, unlike quite a lot of the "noise" that seems to be popular at the moment.

Try living with a sister who listens to the 'noise' that's popular at the moment.

Fuckin' amphibians..

Kids... most people, referring to "noise" that "kids these days" listen to... are referring to our exact genre... metal. Probably more like black metal than machinae metal, but still. I think we can't get away with calling pop music just noise. It's crappy, yes. Uninspired to be sure. Lacking soul and feeling always. But the reason it's popular is that it can be played at any volume and people can pick out a melody or rhythm (moreof the latter these days), whereas, say, Blind Guardian requires closer listening to appreciate.

My point is that talented artists who create truly decent music are hugely unapreciated. And the few decent bands who've made it into the mainstream (like Radiohead and Coldplay) should be rewarded, not hated by people just because they're well-known.

I don't hate them because they're well known. I hate them because I can't stand their music.
