Hate 'em. Well, except for......

Hate 'em. Well, except for......

Postby Rodney Farva » 30 Nov 2017, 16:49

do we have a thread like this already? who knows! will this have gamey legs or will it quickly die out in an embarrassing whimper? who cares!

name a band or bands who have one song you love, but you don't like anything else they've done. go!




okay, i'll go first.



the lyrics are ponderous AS FUCK. "please tell mom this is not her fault." whoooooaaaaa. teenage suicide, don't do it, man. the song is the musical equivalent of a chill scene. musically this just works for me. it's got a real catchy hook, the backing vocal harmonies are just plain fun, the instrumental section starting around the 2:50 mark kills. i don't usually notice drumming but travis barker nails this. that said, i don't like any of their other songs at all, the rest of their catalogue is hot garbage to me.

what you got?
You coin contrarian bro and say shit nonsense like this.

I feel this thread, Rod.

Crap like Papa Roach, Sum 41 & Alien Ant Farm fall more into drunken guilty pleasures but Hot Chip's "Ready For The Floor" is a tune by an allegedly critically acclaimed group that I really enjoy, while thinking the rest of their oeuvre is pretentious shite:



Honourable mention to Gossip's "Standing In The Way Of Control".

That Gossip jam is a good call out. I like too much girl pop to put any of that in here. If I wanted to be a swarmier than usual douche, I'd put Hotel California down, but its hard to deny their catalog.

Justice is a hard to defend act, but this one is still great.



I'm going to go with Fatboy Slim though.

They made an album that I liked in 2007. Defense: complete. That wasn't so hard.

What? They had some good songs on that album. D.A.N.C.E was overplayed as shit, but it was fun for a bit. Phantom (1 and 2), DVNO, One Minute to Midnight and others were all good jams back in the day. I haven't listened to them in a while, maybe they suck now, but I've never heard some widespread consensus that they're terrible like you're implying here.

3 songs that come to mind. I almost was going to put American pie but that might be more in the 1 hit wonder category, I don’t know enough of Don McLean’s other songs to say I hate him.

U2 blows, except for Beautiful Day.
PS: I will never like July 27th. It will always be the day Reggie died. I just hate this day. True Celtic fans know what I mean.

Thank you for providing the most BSMB taek possible. Hating on U2 is not contrarian, as now hating them has become mainstream, even though I don't understand it, but Beautiful Day is probably not in their top 25 best songs.

Right, I mean if we are picking one U2 song its the one on the Batman soundtrack, or Lemon.
