Ach oasis were pretty good.

You may hate them but their songs although inspired from almost one Beatles song and tweaked, (Tomorrow never knows) weren't that bad.

They were working class football songs with an edge.

I loved their first album.

It was a complete album with hits a plenty.when albums were value for money and not shit with 1 or 2 hit songs.

'She's electric' is superb. (Probably taken from The Beatles 'And your bird can sing).

They're both dickheads like.

I can actually judge people on their love for that abhorrent talentless shit.

I think you're a lot confused.

You don't seem to appreciate that different people can have different tastes.

And you come across as intolerant.

Which kind of contradicts this: -

Ah well . As long as we enjoy our own thing

Unlike you, I don't "judge people" by their music taste. Nor can I, and I would argue, nor can you.

Let me give you a real live example: -

One group i think is soooo overrated and utter shit is ACFUCKINGDC.
Same with bob marley.
Same with the doors

AC/DC in the Bon Scott days were unique and they got many people's bodies (and minds) rocking.

Bob Marley was a genius and Jim Morrison produced some fantastic music before he joined the 27 club.

Oh forgot to say...

Pink Floyd.

The Wall was amazing when it came out almost 40 years ago.

prince without a doubt.

He had talent no doubt but so much of his album stuff was utter mince.

Someone at work once said to me he was better than Michael Jackson...

Mental.

Prince's Sign O the Times was my favourite album of the last century.

You see? We have differences in music tastes here, although that last one was a good example of your intolerant "I know best" attitude.

Whilst I can't judge people by their music, I can judge people by their posts.

My judgement is that I couldn't stand you in real life. Nothing to do with your hatred of music that I appreciate - although you managed to include such great, innovative and unique artists (in my, and millions of other people's opinions) that this alone might point to significant differences in outlooks - but because of your attitude, your intolerance, your insensitivity to others and your complete lack of empathy.

Haha that actually made me laugh honestly.

U said yourself it's about opinions.

I detest ACDC they are shite to me ok.and talentless IMO.

I could make my own ACDC song up in about 3 minutes.
Kyrie Minogue got loads of people rocking during the Stock, Aitken and Waterman era too you could argue.
Is a crowds movement how we judge talent now.  :rofl:

The Wall is incredibly over rated for me.it had a storyline that people loved blah blah but the music in it was intellectual guff.

Jim Morrison did produce some great songs as did bob Marley . Read what I wrote.

But bob Marley becomes stale after about 45 minutes for me as he was brilliant but one dimensional.

Prince- sign of the times... That's your favourite album of last century? Wow.

I Think that shows your terrible taste lol.


I'm glad you couldn't stand me in real life Mr precious.

You seem a total tit and come on here slagging off dons fans on a dons forum quite a lot.

I have tolerance aplenty for other people's tastes as long as they keep ACDC off their radio in front of me. It's no biggie.

And I think you can judge people quite easily on their musical opinions. Haven't you just done that with me.

we all have different tastes and each to our own.

Yeah I do think my tastes are superior to yours if I'm honest haha.



My insensitivity to others?
You having a laugh.
Please explain.


We could discuss all day on what is great music or what is overrated.

I have many opinions on this right or wrong who cares. I believe it and you don't.

It's a forum you moron.

I'm not coming across as arrogant at all.

Is it arrogant to hate Huns?

Have a wee think ya rocket then come back and we can discuss further.

The Clash....always referred to by those of a certain age as cooler and true to the roots of punk than their contemporaries like the Damned or the Sex Pistols. I just found them soporific.

And U2. Up to and including The Unforgettable Fire they knew their place and were awesome live. Fast forward just a few weeks to the end of 1984 and Bono gets a line in Band Aid. His sanctimonious puss has never shut since.

 Agree with all the above.I'll add Frank Sinatra. I love that big band sound he's got,but I think thats what saves his skin.He's a pretty mediocre singer IMO.

 Heres one of Joy Divisions catchier tunes     :confused:

Pink Floyd.

I really like about 4 songs of theres but totally overrated.

The wall is utter shite apart from Uncomfortably Numb.

And Dark side of the moon - shite

What are the 4 songs?
(Presume Comfortably numb is one of them?)
I'm a man, and as a man I crave disappointment.

That's why I support Aberdeen Football Club & Scotland.

Elvis. The vast majority of his output was utter drivel.

Elvis was one of those phenomenons in life.

His music wasn't incredible but it was catchy and upbeat as well as melodic for listeners.

He had a superb soulful voice and his image was 1 in a billion.

His timing like all the great artists was perfect.

He was someone to emulate for the lads and the ultimate man to swoon over for the ladies.

The films he was involved in by the plenty were basically cheap advertising campaigns with little substance.

I grew up watching his films and loved them.

He was brilliant.

Probably his biggest fan min, if you dig deeper than the mainstream " Hits " if you like, he's an extremely talented songwriter. Each to their own of course.

Agree on Bono but surprised you say The Clash. For a start, they weren't punks. They had musical talent and whilst their first album was of the era, White Riot and Career Opportunities had classic catchy beats more found in pop than punk. Beyond their first LP, they grew into a classic soul sound but highly original and innovative. They stood the test of time and I can listen to them yet. As I can with the Pistols and The Damned. EMI and Neat Neat Neat are as good today as they were 40 years ago.

Strummer was misunderstood because he never fitted any genre. I thought he was a bit mixed up and a bit of a dick but The Ice Age is coming, Vacuum cleaner sucks up budgie, you're fretting, you're sweating... ain't getting anywhere, it ain't Coca Cola, it's rice - he hit parts of us that only he could. A genius composer for me.

I agree with the clash being overrated but disagree with U2, saw them a few months ago and was blown away (again) It's all subjective, each to their own, one mans food is another mans poison etc etc.

Listening to the Radio this morning and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers struck me as another "overrated" band.
