So yeah, I'm sure this happens to a lot of people. There is some band that you shouldn't like. There is something wrong with it. You might even think that it's bad . . . But you love it! You nod along to the music and can't help but sing along if you know the lyrics. You love it, and you hate the fact that you love it. So yeah, does this happen to anyone else, and if so, with what bands?

For me, the most obvious one is Rhapsody. They are really really cheesy, and all of their songs sound more or less the same to me. I feel it is all charged with vacuous optimism, and the lyrics are terrible. But yes, I like them. Please don't tell anyone.

Also, I like Bal Sagoth. They are pretty much the cheesiest band on earth, and it is precisely the cheesiness that makes me love them so. The "dark" vocals are anything but creepy and all of the "symphonics" sound fake. It's so bad that it's good!

There are some Emperor songs that I like. I have moral issues with liking Emperor. The black metal act is sometimes interesting, and often funny as hell. I approve of it . . . but only so long as it is an act. Church burning is not cool. Neither is killing people.

I like Bring Me The Horizon.
Yeah.


You are very dead to me, good sir. I hope this courageous coming out was worth it.

@JD Lot at them picz, specially at the second one. It looks suspiciously homosexual.

I can picture you saying "You like BMTH, your argument is invalid" every single time we have a discussion.
And yeah, those pictures are just wrong.

That is enough reason to never listen to those guys again and to hate their music. They play real grindcore according to themselves

Well, fuck them. They play Deathcore and that's it to me. I usually don't give a fuck about the artist's stupidity and this band won't be an exception.

Hahahahah yeah. Then again they would never be a favorite anyway. Their music ranks for me (using the MS numbers) around 6,0-7,5 or something like that. There are a couple of tracks I enjoy more than that but that's the overall impression.

I'm an eminem fan, have been since I was 9. I just love his dark humour an cartoon character on acid style lyrics. I don't like most of his singles though, some of them are just annoying. Encore, and relapse are shit, but the rest are good. Recovery is alright, but not great. But yeah, he's just hilarious, and actually intelligent, which is something you dont often get in pop stars.

Not really. I also like Bobby McFerrin, even though "Don't Worry Be Happy" gives me chills.

Nah, I can beat that:

Usually I'm a shameless bastard so it's suprising to me that this is the very first band I don't want to say out loud that I like.
I like Bring Me The Horizon.
Yeah.


Actually, I kind of like Motionless in White.

Did I win?

I'm not ashamed to like any band. Bands I listen to occasionally that could be frowned upon would be like Basshunter, Green Day, and I like a couple songs from Yellowcard mainly for the nostalgia though.

Time for me to win. Fucking Blutengel, been listening to them for weeks now.



Not ashamed so much because of the music itself, but because of their image. And lyrics. Man, those freakin' lyrics. One of their best songs happens to be called "Vampire Romance", which is pretty much the wet dream of every Twilight fangirl. And I imagine they make the majority of the fans, too.

You're ashamed of listening to good black metal?

Seriously though, I don't find any shame in listening to music with any kind of ideology. Racist, nationalist, anti-religious, whatever. If I like the music, I like the music. It doesn't mean I support the lyrical content.
