Any bands you once thought were great, but now set your teeth on edge, and bands that made you sick that you now enjoy?

Recently found myself getting really irritated by Roger Daltrey's shouting, even though I used to be an avid Who fan. Still enjoy Tommy and Quad, and Who's Next on occasion, but for the most part am sick of their bombast.

Always go back and forth on the Doors. Kind of a revolving Doors reaction.

Officially burned out on John Fogerty's yowling. Same with Janis Joplin.

A lot of the Stones and Beatles material I used to like now makes me puke. I can't stand the Beatles early rock and roll stuff, Hold Your Hand, Twist and Shout, liked it when I was 10 or so.
Never liked Time is On My Side, though for years I thought I did because I really liked their other stuff, but now, that early rock and roll Stones just sounds like 1950's shlock.

Always thought of myself as a Jethro Tull fan, but when I really think about it, I hate 90% of their material. Same with Pink Floyd.

Allman Brothers, I haven't been able to get through one record since Win Lose or Draw. Had pretty much given up on them in the 1980's.
But now am impressed with their recent incarnations with the new guitar players.

Skynyrd. Whatever. Loved them in the 70's.

And the Dead too, not a decent disc since Shakedown Street. But this is a case of I used to love the Dead, then hated them for most of the 1980's, then saw them live again late 80's early 90's and have enjoyed their live recordings since.

U2. Over it.

Bands I hated but have changed my mind ?

Black Sabbath. Back in the 70's I thought they were awful, music for freebasers and devil worshippers. I was into the Allmans and the Dead, Tuna. Somewhere in the 90's got hold of a truckstop cassette of Masters of Reality and cranked it up smoking down dirt roads in Arizona and got it, liked them ever since. Nothing like flying thru miles of nothing, leaping over rises and dodging rocks and gullies with Sweet Leaf on the bebop and in the bone.

Captain Beefheart. Totally hated it. It used to freak me out, but the more freaked out I got the less freaked out it sounded until now it doesn't freak me out, and I think in a few more years I might actually enjoy it. At this point I like it, but it still is a very rare listen.

Slade.

I never was a huge fan so i wouldn't call them great but i did like Guns & Roses when they emerged and had a huge success with Appetite For Destruction but within years i started to dislike them. Has mostly to do with Axl Rose. I started to get irritated with his vocals on Paradise City. But you might as well blame corperate radio for that. Damn that song got over played. But then i started to dislike his style of singing all together and when all his Prima Donna antics started to overshadow the accomplishments of the band Axl Rose made me wanna puke.
And that was long before that hole Chinese Democrazy soap opera. Man, what an Assclown. Slash, do yourself a favour and never play with that singing turd ever again.

For most of my life I have DESPISED Rush. Only in the last year have I actually started listening, voluntarily, to a few of their tracks. Some of them aren't that bad, I am surprised to say.


Other than that, most of the bands I have always like are ones that I still like and probably always will - ABB, GD, Neil Young/CSN(Y), Rolling Stones, etc...

I don't think there is anything wrong with liking some parts of an artist's canon but not others.

It would be surprising if your tastes corresponded with an artists throughout the duration of their career. Maybe it's that you like a style of music but "enough is enough". I was that way with Yes - I loved The Yes Album, Fragile and Close To The Edge. After that - no thanks.

Same with CSN(Y). The first two studio albums, then 4 Way Street but nothing since then.

Steely Dan lost me with Katy Lied, Santana after Caravanserai, Joni Mitchell after Mingus.

I went through a phase of enjoying World Music, especially African, but I had enough of that after a while. When you can't understand the words, maybe there is only so much novelty value in the rythms and music.

Van Morrison I loved up until I thought he was producing the same album over and over again - Poetic Champions Compose was where I checked out. Plus his stage persona was kind of hard to warm to.

On the other hand, I came late in the day to appreciating The Band, Dylan, Richard Thompson, June Tabor, Coloseum, Paul Butterfield....

The advantage of this is that you have a large body of work available to explore - a bit like discovering an author and devouring their previous works. It can be expensive though!

Maybe a reversal here. I love Joe Walsh prior to the Eagles "James Gang".
I loved the Eagles prior to Joe walsh joining.
WTF, some matches weren't made in heaven

I go back and forth on Leonard Cohen. Heard the song Come Healing tonight and it blew me away so now I think it is time to give his discography another listen

Loved the Fleetwood Mac that brought me "Bare Trees" & Future Games" & "Kiln House"...but when Buckingham & Nicks joined up, they lost me. Not even the same band.

Used to like Rod Stewart when he was with the Faces...

Used to like Derek Trucks and Susan T.....When they had their own bands....

Loved the original Lynyrd Skynyrd, Now I wouldn't go for free.

Agreed. I was a big GnR fan but got tired of Axl and his antics. I can't remember the last time I spun a GnR CD. Maybe later this week just for old times sake...

Big time Springsteen fan in high school and college. Now, BFD. He takes himself way too seriously.

Really looked at the Black Crowes differently after seeing them with TTB

Also didn't care much for Dave Matthews but feel differently. Maybe its hearing him and Warren singing Cortez the Killer

20 years ago I was really into Eric Clapton but now I really only want to hear his early work up to and including Derek & The Dominoes. I still like much of his other stuff, but I don't love it and I've come to think of him as over-rated. I suppose the change for me came with the realization that George Terry played most of my favorite licks on the Live In The 70's box set.

I do really like his Robert Johnson releases and his recent record with J.J. Cale. Doyle Bramhall II seems to keep Eric rooted in blues also which is really where Eric shines.
