An Artist Who Everyone Likes?

Post by Roverdamus on Tue Aug 10, 2010 10:38 pm

I was having a conversation with my mate earlier about whether was an artist/band who everyone likes. I seem to remember this subject being touched on briefly on here, and RTM (if I remember rightly) said Bob Marley, which is a good shout but I know a fair few people who really don't like him. I suppose maybe "everyone likes" is a bit ambitious, so I'll change it to "nobody dislikes".

Anyway, the only one we could really agree on was Michael Jackson. Regardless of their musical tastes, the vast majority of people don't seem to mind him (and by "him" I mean his music, not him as a person). There weren't really any more who we were able to agree on, really. The guy I was talking to likes modern, mainstream, commercial (for want of a better word) shite like Kings of Leon and The Killers, the type of music that really pisses me off.

Anyone else got any ideas? Smile

I know LOADS of people who hate them. I can't think why, but I'm hardly unbiased, am I?

If they hate them then ask for a good reason why. I can't imagine anyone with any musical knowledge would say "because they're shit and not talented". Queen are one of the most talented bands of all time, not to mention one of the most popular. And the words 'talent' and 'popular' rarely go together.

There's a few Queen songs I can't stand, but overall there's tons more I love so I love them.

I meant if you liked (or didn't dislike) the artist overall.

The main reason people seem to give is that it's "not proper music", and that isn't even a reason at all, just another opinion. :/

If that's their opinion then they're stupid. The only people I can think of who'd say "it's not proper music" are people who listen to shit like 'Free Jazz'.


Oasis?

I meant Kaiser Chiefs. But I can't say I like Stereophonics either. I loved Performance and Cocktails when it came out, but overall I think they're wankerific.

Personally I don't like Eminem, but nearly everyone else seems to, so maybe.

MJ is a good shout. I'll go with MJ for now. Eminem is too dislikeable to many people, but then again you have your "MJ was a paedo" people who dislike his music because he was wrongly-accused of that stuff.
