My wife and I were sitting in a restaurant tonight and No Rain by Blind Melon was playing. That was the song with the Bee Girl accompanying video. Every time I hear that song, it gives me a lift. No idea why. Guilty Pleasure, I guess.

It sounds like nobody likes Nickelback, so who is buying all their records. They don't seem to be hurting. I know it is not me. :)

I'm not embarrassed to say I like bands other people don't like, if my musical taste is more wide, and take styles, and influences to help me become more advanced then why not say it?

I found myself to like mainly songs such as "Jar of Hearts" by Christina Perri.

I used to be a heavy listener of Biggie Smalls, haha I was about 11-12 when I used to listen to him.

I mean that wasn't too long ago, but now that i'm 13 ive expanded my musical tastes.

There is this guy, Ian Axel, and he plays piano (search him on YouTube) and a couple of his songs I think are really good.

To embarrassed to admit it on a shame thread. That is shame indeed.

Listening to Totalimmortal, on AFI's EP, All hollows.
Really cheesy old skool punk, but I can't but sing along every time I hear it.

I'm not really embarrassed by anything I listen to but some of it surprises people that know me.

Masters Apprentices is probably a good example of this.

The title of the thread is "Bands you're embarrassed to say you like...", not "Bands that others may consider dorky".

No matter how cool a band is someone out there is going to say it is "dorky".

Always! I have Barry Manilow's Copacobana in my collection lol

Also Cilla Black's Anyone Who Has a Heart ... great melodies and not too many pop tunes have basson. And Deity knows how many Dusty Springfield tunes I have. Hell, my group even plays a Dusty song.

Gronk City at this end :)

Okay, the challenge has been issued, so here it is...the band I'm most embarrassed to say I like: Loverboy. Okay, I said it. I'm going to hide in shame now.

Mary, I'd forgotten about that one. I just checked out Turn Me Loose again ... it's not so bad! I lasted a whole minute and a half before I had to turn it off :)

Fine..."Bands I like that people will likely laugh at but I don't care" are:

Bee Gees
Bread
KC and the Sunshine Band

I don't like everything they did, just mainly the "greatest hits" stuff.

OK...there...I said it. You happy Polly? ;)

I used to listen to Loverboy nonstop in college, and still like their stuff. Although a couple years ago there was a musical TV show where they brought back some of the bands from the 80's to play their hits, and Loverboy was one of the bands. The lead singer, who used to wear tight red leather pants, gained about 100 pounds. I think he was wearing a small tent this time. LOL

I have Kenny Rogers greatest hits album. There, I said it. Oh, and I like the Bee Gees, even their disco era stuff. And KC & the Sunshine Band, as well as Kool & the Gang. Okay, I'm going to stop now....

My daughter has MCR posters all over her room. Some of their songs are okay. At least it isn't Panic at the Disco. Our band's guitarist has a good friend in Vegas that recorded Panic's demo tape that got then signed to a record deal. He said they were AWFUL!

I went to see an ABBA concert last summer AND also have seen KC and Sunshine Band in concert about 10 years ago (long after if was acceptable to like them, if there ever was such a time).

I better shut up before you guys kick me out of here!

Geto Boys, ABBA, '70s disco, Venom.

If I listened to the Beatles and Led Zeppelin, I'd be embarrassed to let anyone know it.

Well sort of..it was one member of the original band and the rest were "replacement" members. They played with the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra. It was actually quite good and a lot of fun.

Scorpions? Who doesn't at least kind of like them. Sure, they have some cheesy stuff, but it's fun cheese.

I used to like Evanescence when they first came out. But the I slowly discovered many other bands who had that same sound, but were 100x times better, like Lacuna Coil, Within Temptation, Leaves Eye, and Sirenia among others. Plus that 2nd Evanescence blew. It was way over produced, to the point it sounded like a Britney Spears album just with metal guitars on it.

I don't care for Abba, but do you know who loves them? Terry Bozzio. So at least you're in good company.
