Bands/artists I respect but don't like (14 person items)

"Why I respect them: Influenced too many bands I like (and many I don't like) to name, plus Lou Reed is mostly awesome. Why I don't like them: The older I get I'm finding myself bored by the majority of their songs. Sure their music is original enough, but the songs tend to meander aimlessly and cease to be interesting long before they've ended. I still like a small number of their songs, but trying to get through their albums is too unpleasant to attempt anymore."

Let there be Punk... (10 person items)

"The band that personified the attitude "fuck it, I don't care". In the Andy Warhol's Factory, where the junkies used to spend their time in the 60s, the music that rocked their habitat was the Velvet Underground's songs. In a time where only bands like The Beatles made success, a band like the The Velvet Underground was not really accepted. They failed commercialy, but nowadays they are a cult band, and their importance in rock history is properly recognized. Wikipedia The Velvet Underground "
