Default Bands you want to like but don't.

My fellow pumpkin-heads, some of you may understand the topic. I think it would be cool to like the following bands for the reasons (mainly superficial!) stated in brackets:

The Cure (goth image)
Siouxsie And The Banshees (goth image, loved Siouxsie's voice and Siouxsie was/is cool/cute)
The Gits (I liked Mia Zapata and feel sorry for her)
Joy Division (Very dark, deep and poetic)
Type O Negative (Very dark, deep and death-obsessed)
Snake River Conspiracy (cool name, cute singer and cult band; twould be totally cool to be like 'hey you like Snake River Conspiracy?' to people who have no idea who they are. Like, totally.)

I still like a lot of the songs by the bands above of course, but I don't really consider myself a fan of any of them. Tragedy!!!

I don't have reasons I would want to like a band if I don't like them. But I have a lot of well-respected bands I dislike, such as

My Bloody Valentine
Sonic Youth
Radiohead
Led Zeppelin
The Eagles
Neutral Milk Hotel
Sex Pistols
Iron Maiden
Johnny Cash
The Beatles
NIN
Pearl Jam

there's more, but typing this one handed (kid on shoulder, perverts) is hard

The Smith's
Interpol
The Clash
Jane's Addiction
Bad Religion
Radiohead
Lush
David Bowie
Meat Puppets
Not really a particular reason other than the fact that I haven't found a song I like a whole lot yet. Really just need to set some time to go through their discography and whatnot. I've seen interviews and live recordings from most of them, and they just seem like interesting bands to get into.

A Perfect Circle
Soundgarden
Ramones
The Darkness
The Dead Weather
The Strokes
Arctic Monkeys
In This Moment
Lacuna Coil
Led Zeppelin
No Doubt
Radiohead
Silverchair
Weezer
The Cure
Alice in Chains

All of these bands have songs I really like, but for whatever reason can't get through any of their albums.

I want to like every band, because the more things I have to like, the more satisfaction I will have.

I only like a small portion of those bands, though.

And I am not satisfied.

i don't hate all of their output (there's too much and too many 'genres') but the beatles are never a band i'd choose to listen to. pink floyd either. even though i've enjoyed a track or two from both bands while tripping my brains out of my ears.

All i'm seeing in this thread is you confessing that you don't get two of the greatest bands of all time

All legendary artists, yes... But just stuff that I can't really get into despite the universal appeal.

the eagles are not well respected, so the pressure is off to like them

cue joke about eating those biscuits being more pleasurable than listening to the band

(i've heard the eater is the one who cums last btw. you know, in case anyone's looking to play )

you can't really go wrong with starting with Live at the Witch Trials, the debut, if you enjoy punk to any degree

if not, then I kinda suggest a leap straight to The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall where you'll find the more colorful and ambitious tracks
