Kids today with their fancy internet don't ever have to know the horror of wasting $12.99 on an album of mindless chop blowing just because it seemed like a good idea at the time.

I'd have to say "Faithfully" and "Open Arms" by Journey.

Not only are they tired, but both songs ruined the reputation of the band. Most people only think of Journey as a sappy piano ballad band, and not the fusion/rock band they were. And worse, the band them embraced the sappy piano ballad and wrote more of them.

Don't have a once favoured song that I now hate. Plenty I may tire of due to repetition or bombardment, but that doesn't extend to dislike by any measure. In the right mood, I can still find something good in anything I like.....regardless of how often I've heard it. Generally speaking, if I hate it now it's because I hated it then. Favourites have become favourites for a reason......even a bit of overkill is unlikely to change that for me.

If anything, I roll the other way. There's a bunch of stuff I once didn't like or was too willing to dismiss, that the passage of time has actually given me an appreciation for.
I'm with ya all the way here Jules.The older Bugs cartoons are the best.I'm also a big Elmer Fudd, Foghorn Leghorn fan and lets not forget the Roadrunner and Coyote.Put the Acme company on the map.

Ditto for me, like you Ian and Grea, I had, and still have, tons of elevator fusion with big famous drummers displaying their chops in a overplaying fashion, I almost don't listen to these records anymore, but at the time, they had an influence on my playing, I went through my "fusion" drumming at one stage, not with the same "chops expertise" though.

The same happened with my "Rush" years, trying to do a NP type of drumming in my bands, but somehow you always get back to the music that's dear to your heart, even after all these years, I'm a rock drummer at heart, always has been and always will be, I can't shake it off, although I did try at different stages, I guess we cannot deny where we're coming from musically.
