The NZA Posted January 24, 2010 Share Posted January 24, 2010 this thread should be...something. im not sure if we should/can differentiate the difference between a) music that is largely unpopular/thought to be awful but you generally think is fantastic, and b) music you know to be shit but still enjoy. the former makes this an apologist thread; the latter, more the confessional idea i had, and to also worm out others who (secretly) agree. this thread also has to take the forgiving element of time & trends: i.e., bad rock/rap mixups and nu-metal were, like vanilla ice's "ice ice baby" largely enjoyed by mainstream audiences, until their very short shelf life expired, and the collective conscious reveled in (arguably, rightfully so) mocking the shit out of them & their fans. to this end, there are hondonians i appreciate/quietly respect and cringe at for their bold stances: spiffytee can enjoy the shit out of bubblegum pop shit (N'Sync, etc) whereas gunsmith's feverent fear of change allows him to herald Nickelback, Evanescance and other groups not known for quality since just past their debut. on that note: i loved Kid Rock in the early aughts (were talking up to about 2002 when it was well past socially acceptable). i saw the motherfucker in concert, and would still defend the album Devil Without a Cause as fun, especially in a scene that didnt know what the fuck to do with itself years post-grunge. that would be my apologist contribution; i cant speak on any albums past that. my fun-cause-i-lived-in-the-era (read: freestyle, an awful, awful genre) contribution of shit i know to be shit would be bad 90's house-esque music. Crystal Waters, Cece Penniston, Ace of Base type shit is in rotation on my ipod and a part of me i shouldve outgrown past high school holds a slight fear that right after some Commodores type shit i can be proud of ends, my gym playlist will somehow be boomed over the facilities speakers and only mute itself long enough for people to realize im happily humming/singing along to some shit like fucking or Love come down or something. there, its out in the open. your turn. yes, this thread is all my fucking Preacher soundtrack's fault Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
