Insert 90 something percent of pop music in the past two decades.  Nothing but kiddie Disney crap.

I consider not enjoying Aerosmith one of my great failures as a listener.

Honestly?

Anything off Queen's greatest hits, anything by Queen really. I respect them, I value their talent, I am glad they make people happy.

They get on my nerves. Eugh.

I listened to all of these so much that I really am good and tired of them; it makes it hard for me to judge their musicality anymore.

#1- Hotel California and nearly all of the Eagles. A friend and I shared a ride to the airport once, with an acquaintance. Airport was 2 hours away and he owned ONE piece of music- the Eagles Greatest Hits.  We still remember that as the trip from Hell . . .

#2- The Doors   My sister played them daily for ages; I got tired of Jim Morrison's voice.

#3- I guess it's emo music?  My daughter used to listen to tons of it.  So depressing and no good guitar!

#4- Kashmir by Led Zeppelin    (Sorry everyone.  Way overplayed back in the day and the slow pace used to bother me even then, it's dirge like to me.)

#5- I'm with Fordgalaxy!  Slow Ride!   Foghat always sounded like a not that good of a garage band to me.

Never need to hear them again. But I've come to respect them, but the last year especially, with that film out, it's been unbearable avoiding them.

This one is absolutely at the top of my list, too.

Radar Love also was mentioned, ditto that.

Hotel California, yep

I don’t know, there are so many turds, aren’t there? I thought that was why it’s great to be able to just listen to what we choose to, in this day and age.

I haven’t listened to commercial radio in more than 25 years now.

With the exception of Allentown, anything by Billy Joel. I can't explain it but I'm allergic to the guy. Most '80s hair metal. Almost any pop country song peddling schlock nostalgia with "small town" or "home town" in the title, or any that mention dating one's high school sweetheart who of course was a cheerleader (and the singer was probably the quarterback, whether he really was or not, when he wasn't fishing with his friends, or maybe his dad; and he drove an old pickup with just the right amount of rust). I'd listen to death metal before these.
