Two genres that for me didn't age well are Hair Metal and 90s rap. The horrible lyrics about women and violence make me cringe when I listen to that now.
Yup, “Shakey” sold more singles in the UK than anybody else in the 80’s!!On my first trip to the UK in the early 80's I remember this song was everywhere, must have heard it at least a 100 times. Also seemed to be the song choice of drunken sing alongs while consuming Tennents Lager.
Love their “Cereal Killer” album. But a lot of that record sounds too clean and the parts too tight to be considered “punk” for me. I think it was a songwriter who hired studio musicians to make the band.
We all grow up sooner or later and wonder what everybody else was so mad aboutyeah...I considered them a "schtick" band...and the angry, young, poor, and pissed off at the world kid that I was could not take them seriously b/c they weren't seemingly angry, young, poor, and pissed off at the world

I used to be this way, but now it just makes me tired.
Same here, and some of them make NO SENSE to me. I love Dylan and Springsteen and Jackson Browne (and Nick Drake and Elliott Smith and Sufjan Stevens and Mark Kozelek) but while I admire, respect and enjoy Warren Zevon, his music just doesn't move me the way the others do. I wish he/it did, and every few years I try again and, so far at least, no real luck.Music is a funny thing! I swear I have a LONG list of bands that I should absolutely love, but I just don't for whatever reason.
I'm finding that as I get older I'm liking more extreme metal than I did as a teenager. Funny really, always liked metal but couldn't stand growls. Love them now...it keeps me alive!!! The music, not the being pissed off...
Almost all of my punk and metal friends "grew out off" that music, and are now depressed, sullen, "beaten down" - honestly boring - people. I could not handle that kind of existence. I didn't "grow out of" any genre....I just added more to the pile.
I’m right there with you and am ashamed to admit I once owned a pair of parachute pants!
Back then I didn’t know of the genre titled heavy metal. When I was 14 I was offered a free ticket to a band called Rush! And I declined!! Ugh. I still cringe at the commercial crap from the 80”s
I had definitely vaguely heard of him, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard that song before, and I don’t know of any of his other songs that I might’ve heard.Wow. I might be the only one who has never heard of him

ASIA- Loved them in the early 80's and the original bands of the 70's that each member came from.
But now, it sounds kind of dated and a bit too polished for my liking.
