To counter the negativity of the least fav bands thread... are there any bands did you used to hate, but eventually came around to? I'm talking specific bands, not whole genres like "country music" or "classical." One for me is definitely:

Steely Dan - For some uninformed reason, when I was in college, Steely Dan epitomized the essence of lame shampoo rock for middle aged dudes. Having trouble remembering the 70's? Go sneak a joint in the garage and listen to Aja and it'll all come back to you, dude -- overproduced, pretentious music by soulless assholes for soulless assholes. And for me, the fact that the "band" was two dudes with music playable only by a bunch of virtuoso studio musicians was the final nail. I have since pulled me head out of my ass and come around, of course -- and while I wouldn't really call myself a Steely Dan fan, I have found much pleasure in some of their stuff in last few years of my life. That statement would have been absolutely laughable when I was 20.

JGB. Well not really, but when I was 15 and heard the live JGB album I was like, "huh? Jerry plays in a wedding band in his downtime?" That didn't last long, thankfully.


Anyone start off hating the Dead? I always dug them from the start (though it took me a couple years to get it), but I have some friends who hated the Dead for a good while before coming around and completely converting.

The Gratful Dead!

I was 17 for one year in Virginia as an exchange student. Everybody was either a GD or a Led Zeppelin fan. I hated to get with the masses (as I do today) so all I heard in the parties was Skull [CENSORED] + some studio things. I even recieved a gift form a friend who was a basketball team mate of mine at the time ... and it was Skull Fuck.

At the time I was listening at The Who and The Doors.

Led Zep. Thought they were the most ovverated pretentious band ever. While i still think they are sort of ovverated they definately are unique and most of their albums have basicly laid the foundation for heavy metal hard rock and stadioum rock.

James Brown makes my list here. When I was young, I remember him recording "Living In America" for one of the Rocky movies and thinking he was a douche. Listening back now, I have found an appreciation for his "hard work."

Another that comes to mind is Marilyn Manson. While his recent work pretty much sucks, the albums Mechanical Animals and Antichrist Superstar have some pretty decent songs. If you like things a little heavier, it's not bad stuff.

Phish.

This is a weird one though. I hated them and then i liked them by the time i graduated highschool. Then for a while i dug them. Then I absolutely hated them with a passion. Then they came back in 09 and i found it rather boring but i wanted to like them. By the end of the year I got in a couple drunken arguments about how much they suck. Needless to say I am sitting patiently at the moment for my brand spanking new copy of Phish Companion Second Edition. Haha gotta love to hate to love phish. Oh and i still think Joy is a pretty bad album with a great Terrapin Station ripoff. Now you have the rest of the story.

Funny, I never liked Phish (saw them in a bar in Portland ME in 89 and was not impressed) but my wife wanted to go this year when they played Merriweather on June 27. It rocked!! I have a newfound appreciation for them.

A band I used to hate but like now - KISS

Link Friday, 11/03/1989 Tree Café, Portland, ME

Set 1: Colonel Forbin's Ascent > Fly Famous Mockingbird, Bathtub Gin, My Sweet One, Split Open and Melt -> Bundle of Joy -> You Enjoy Myself, Punch You In the Eye, Reba, Golgi Apparatus

Set 2: David Bowie[1] > No Dogs Allowed, The Oh Kee Pa Ceremony, The Sloth, Foam

[1] Sesame Street theme and Manteca teases, as well as an Antelope-style jam segment.

Notes: Bowie included teases of the Sesame Street theme and Manteca, as well as an Antelope-style jam segment. The listing for the second set is most likely incomplete.

Honestly, that setlist looks kinda lame, and it was 89 Phish. A couple good songs but nothing crazy.

That's crazy - that was the show I saw!!! Tree Cafe was a nice little place. Thanks. I remember everyone was making a big deal of them - at first I thought it was pretty good and thought the drummer in the dress, playing a vacuum cleaner and the guitar player and bassist using little trampolines was funny, but then I got bored - all sounded like a mash up of Zappa and the Allman Brothers with stupid lyrics. Still kind of sounds that way to some extent, but they have evolved and are really good musicians. At Merriweather they did the Wailers "Mellow Mood" Jumpin Jack Flash in the middle of a jam and the encore was Fire. Lots of fun.
