Abba.  Boney M.  Fleetwood Mac - Rumors.  reason: played them to the saturation point when I was in my early twenties.  Don't mind listening to them once in a while today.

Any RAP group or artist after about 3 or 4 minutes.

Became a Shooting Star when I got my 1st guitar.
Back in '66, I was 13 and that was my fix.
Still shooting for stardom after all this time.
If I never make it, I'll still be fine.

You know what they say.  Take the C out of CRAP and you have RAP.

I'm really tired of all new rock-bands. They make similar music for girls and silly people. They play rock music like it is pop-music. Bands like Maroon5, for example, are very popular but I think that these bands defame the name of the real rock-music!

Always play your music from your heart. Because only after that people will feel your emotions and you will be honest with these people!

I feel the same about Neil Young.  Still pouting that all his political hippie dreams never came true.  I think he's even written a couple books about it too.  While guys like him and Earle get the faithful all fired up like preaching to the already converted, they manage to alienate a whole segment of would-be listeners.  But when you think your own opinion is that damn important, that's what you do.

Well said, Caleb. Plus, Young and many others (like Springsteen) are total hypocrites; they've become rich on the backs of the "little guys" (their fans) through pure capitalism, and yet they act like this same capitalism (and private land ownership, gun ownership, other freedoms) is evil and is someone else's fault. Pathetic.

Back to the main question, along with Young, I've grown weary of Jackson Browne's chronic depression in his songs (and his political rants like those already mentioned).  Yes, he's been through some hard times - haven't we all?

I'd also have to say, I love Tommy Emmanuel; he's incredibly, unbelievably talented, but after about 4-5 songs at 120 mph or bpm, I need a break! I got this way with some of Leo Kottke's stuff back in the day. Never had that problem with Chet or Doyle Dykes or some other fingerstyle players...

these are just a few
U2, the Eagles,Boston, Heart,
all for the same reason, not their fault
they just play the same hits on the radio all the time
they all have great b side songs that never get played
a shame

Just to drag up an old thread - I heard "What a Fool Believes" by the Doobies yesterday, and it reminded my how much I despised what Michael McDonald did to the Doobie Brothers style...  mad

Took my son to see Roger Waters in Tampa a couple of weeks ago. I've never gotten tired of Pink FLoyd - but the political spew during the concert irritated me. I didn't pay good money to listen to a rich Brits opinions on the evils of America. Regardless of my stance on any of the issues.

BUT - otherwise great show. the girls on Great Gig in the Sky.... shivers!

Heh. Reminds me of listening to Brit Billy Bragg harangue an audience of Canadians over an American president.

Springsteen, Young, Drive By Truckers, and quite a few other insufferable D-bags that can't shut up and play. I've really enjoyed Jason Isbell's last couple of releases, but; he is rapidly heading into the same insufferable D-bag territory.

Duck, Old Fred Eaglesmith does not hold back on the political rhetoric either.  He talks almost as much as he sings.

Well, I wouldn't go that far and like you really enjoyed Jason Isbell's solo work but the new one with The 400 Unit is not to my liking at all. Why would you call all these guys a bag of donuts, by the way?

Um yes and no. As far as I can tell, he doesn't really espouse any political view other than despising postmodern progressives with no sense of humor which I find hard to disagree with. I've never heard him either tout or attack an individual politician or party, however. As I've said, I don't mind politics just partisan politics. You'd never see Fred doing this for instance.
