Least Favourite Bands or Artists

What's Hot
Just thought I'd offer some light relief and try to divert the 'comedically bad playing' to somewhere more suitable.
Far be it from me to criticise professional musicians with more talent in their puss filled scabs than I have in my body,but I thought I'd offer posters the chance to vent over their least favourite performers and bands. There is a massive caveat that performers who you may dislike,in my case say Rod Stewart,can make a cracking tune or three but overall they are not to your taste. Like I say,its not that I or you don't believe they are very talented but more that their music or style just don't resonate with your tastes.
I will just start off with adding Metallica and AC/DC to Mr Rod Stewart to get the ball rolling. I am obviously not a Metal or heavy rock fan but with one or exceptions.
Fire away good people.

    Well this definitely won't start any arguments or get out of hand. Would this not be more suitable in Off Topic/Music than Guitar?

    Whitesnake.  I have to change radio stations if they're played.  Coverdale HAS to be the biggest twat in rock history, and that's some achievement as he has plenty of competition.

    Robbie Williams,  Kylie Minogue and Michael Buble for a start. 

    Ian

    Lowering my expectations has succeeded beyond my wildest dreams.

    We can lean it towards bands which feature guitars if you like? Which is likely to be everybody I would imagine.

    Scouting For Girls are quite possibly the worst band I've ever heard.

    Indeed.

    It is possible to revile a band that is technically and compositionally brilliant. It is possible to adore a band that is crude, slovenly and only seems to know two and a half chords.

    Like the old Kit-Kat pop group TV advertisement said, "you can't sing, you can't play and you look terrible. You'll go a long way."

    the sex pistols it was shit in 1977 and it sounds even worse now. rubbish
    IMO, the Sex Pistols was never about music. It was another one of McLaren's Situationist agit-prop art projects. So was all the post-Pistols bickering with Lydon in the national press EVERY time one or the other of them had something to publicise. (My. Wot a coincidence!

    I agree that the Sex Pistols were short on musical sophistication but, without their shambolic 1976 UK tour, we would not have had several bands that were worthy of attention.
    Be seeing you.

    At least 95% of cover bands, drummer too loud, shouty tuneless singers, plus Abba and anything that comes under any genre that includes the word metal.
    My other passion is firearms! Does that make me a closet Redneck???

    Think I'd go as far to say Ed Sheeran is kind of like a decent Chef, who's chosen to ply his trade at Harvester

    Steve Vai is undoubtedly technically brilliant, but I really can't listen to his style of music any more than I can listen to Hip-Hop or Rap or James Blunt.  That doesn't mean that I am technically shit at music or playing, nor that people who do like Vai are deluded in some way, just that I don't like his playing or his songs.

    Crypt of Filth
    Sepulchre of Doom
    Sacrifice of the Devil's Goat

    Etc, etc. 

    I've probably made up those bands but you get the idea.

    Not a massive fan of James Blunt's music although I don't dislike it. I am, however, a big fan of his. Very witty, extremely sharp and refreshingly self-deprecating. Top chap who comes over as a genuinely nice bloke. Probably rock 'ard as well.

    I prefer to spend time thinking and talking about things I like, it's better for the psyche
