I like quite a few bands that are generally extremely frowned upon by musicians or music nerds, such as Nickelback, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit and John Mayer. No shame here.

Not really.

I do have music that I put on to make annoying guests exit promptly. Air supply comes to mind.

I literally don't like it, I can't stand it, and hope the annoying "guest" hates it!

Anything that might closely compare might be Billy Joel. He isn't terrible, and some songs are really good as far as the melody. But compare to Emperor, Melvins, Portishead, Slayer, ISIS, Gangstarr and Atmosphere he seems out of place.

The song "Tiny Dancer," perpetually makes me hum the melody, but I don't own it or have it on my computer or in cd form.

A good melody is a good melody.

"Pianoman" is a well written song.

So is "Sworn" of "IX Equilibrium," but that's another story.

Any Dream Theater ballad... I don't even like them, I'm just too lazy to go through my collection and selectively delete them.

And these would be considered embarrassments in some circles. A woman I worked with some years ago disparagingly referred to Jethro Tull as "boy music".

...

I was way back in the day, when I was playing Hendrix covers on saturday nights and then went out dancing with my girlfriend to the tunes of Abba, Barry White, Donna Summer, and the BeeGees...

Now I wear my eclecticism like a technicolor robe, with pride, and sneer, scoff and generally look down upon musical snobs and other such people with one dimensional tastes.

PS- If I ever catch myself tapping my foot to Barry Manilow's Copa Cabana, I tend to slap myself about the face and mouth.



PPS- Is it just me or has Hillary gotten a little chubbier lately....

...

Sometimes I find myself humming 'Heaven is a place on Earth' when I'm sitting in LA traffic.

Okay I'll admit it... I always turn up the radio and sing along to KC and the Sunshine Band. I actually saw them in concert about 10 years ago and they were really good...the guy puts on a helluva show! I'm not eexactly ashamed of it but it's probably not the first thing I'd say was on my iPod if asked.

Maybe if I was back in high school. Now I listen to anything from death/black metal to Depeche Mode, Marty Robbins or Popol Vuh.

If the music resonates with me then I will most likely listen to it, whatever form it might take.

I'm ... not exactly ashamed. It's a really senseless song, though. I don't know, It just puts me in a good mood: (is This) The Way To Amarillo

Not to mention the k!pop >_>

I never really understood all the hate for Nickelback. Myself I am not a fan nor a hater. Sometimes I think that the hate towards them comes out of jealousy. Sure, the lyrics are juvenile and stupid but how many other bands could you say that about?

Their performance at this years Grey Cup (canadian version of superbowl) was incredibly tight.

Good point. I never got that either - they're commercial, but they're good pro players and I'd much rather them than the all-dancing autotune plastic pop bimbos and himbos.

+1 on Nickelback.

Considering that they ARE quite commercial I find their music quite enjoyable, with some really good stuff every now and then. Also I think that Chad Kroeger has a voice many peeps are simply envious of. The envy might also relate to their success or the hi-end gear they play/can afford. (Hmm... I have a PRS guitar and Mesa/Boogie amp, too ;-) But just 1 each, not hundreds, haha.)

I'm a fan. Saw them live on the For All The Right Reasons tour, and they're one of the most killer live acts I've ever seen. Also, Daniel Adair is one hell of a drummer.

They got a lot of hate early on, and then it just became cool to bash them. Like you said, they don't have a lot of depth, but that applies to thousands of bands. They've never claimed to be about anything other than having a good time and making sure their audience does as well.
