Re: Bands you're embarrased to say you like...
In a word...Motown.
The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Four Tops, Jr. Walker & The All Stars, Smokey Robinson, Wilson Picket, Barrett Strong, The Contours, Jimmy Ruffin...geez i could go on and on. I'm a young guy and this music came along way before my time but i love listening to it. IMO this was some of the best music ever written. My friends look at me like i've lost my mind whenever i say anything about listening to it. lol
Modern bands i generally don't tell anyone i listen to...
1. Blink 182...and it's not because of Travis Barker ( rolls eyes)
2. Pillar, Skillet..Christian Rock get's slammed by alot of people but there is some great music there if you give it a chance.
3. Creed..Alot of people call these guys a Pearl Jam rip off. Doesn't bother me i think they are a cool band.
4. Nickleback...IMO another cool band that gets slammed alot. I enjoy Daniel Adairs' drumming is the biggest reason i listen to them though.
Sabian / DW / Evans / Vic Firth
