Have you ever listened to a band and left it and come back and give it another try and another and another but never gets you and you wish that that band would be among the others you like but for some reason never works.
Mine would be RUSH. I can never get used to the bass/singer. I love the music but can't stand the voice at all and god knows I tried and I tried to get used to..............but no... it won't happen sad.gif

It was DT and Steve Vai, but not anymore. I find that for example i'll not like listening to someone like Greg Howe, and then when i heard Guthtie Govan who was more on the rock side of fusion (i think) i started liking Greg Howe.

Led Zepplin.. it seems everyone is a led zepplin fan.. not me, just can't do it.. i would love to be able to talk led zepplin with people and have something good to say but i can't, their alot like metallica to me, when they first came out they did something original which grabbed the attention of everyone, but now that rock and metal are common practice they just seem really generic to me because they never advanced past that original state. or maybe they did and i just didn't notice biggrin.gif

Nevermore because Warrel Dane's voice is damn annyoing but the music rules, and Buckethead because 10% of his music is brilliant and the other 90% are just noises and annoying sounds...

I used to really not like either of them as well, but now I love them both. Any particular reason why?

I really digged in their music style and listened to many of both artists songs, and played them aswell.There ofcourse are a few songs i liked compared to other, but i just think in general their style isn't much what im about (dare i say boring, just an opinion) tho i have a very huge taste for almost all music

Actually, no, there are no bands like that. I don't see why anyone would like to like a band they don't like.

Amazing topic! I remember that when I was 15 (11 years ago) I wanted to like Dream Theater and used to listen to Images and Words only enjoying the song Pull me under. I always gave it new chances and never get convinced of the other sons.... so I tried with another abum.. Awake, In the first auditions happened the same to me but then I started to remember the melodies the solos and finally I loved it. Then I became a DT fan and started to enjoy all their albums.

DT got me straight away. I borrowed A Changed of Seasons. The first thing that really got me was M Portnoy. I thought wow what a drummer then the sound so clean and accurate playing. I bought Images and Words and Metropolis just blew me away then I bought Awake. For many DT fans the best album but not for me at all. I don't like La Brie forcing his voice that's why some parts sound right to ones and wrong to some others it's a matter of taste really.
The band I am happy now with is Symphony X. It has taken me a long while but finally I love them very much wink.gif. Right now it's the band I play the most.
.....and still don't like RUSH what a waste of a nice music mad.gif

HAPPY TO BE ALONE ON THIS.......LOVE RUSH

Also had the opportunity to spend some time with them years back in a non musical setting and they were super, super nice.

Grew up in high school listening to rush and still have great memories of them.......

This might suprise everyone, but for me its Red Hot Chilli Peppers. I dont like the voice of the singer, and most of the songs annoy me, such as Give It Away.

The only song I can actually listen to by RHCP is Californication and thats it. The rest I really can't get into
