10 Artists You Either Love or Despise

For the same reason no one gets “Everlong” or “My Hero” tattoos, late-night arguments about the relative merits of One by One and In Your Honor rarely end in fisticuffs. Foo Fighters simply don’t inspire those types of strong feelings, and while they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, they’re no one’s bottle of pre-colonoscopy MiraLax either. They’re a band you may like and might even love but aren’t likely to become obsessed with, and while pop music is loaded with artists in that same position, some musicians force listeners to draw a line in the sand. What follows is a rundown of 10 artists you either absolutely love or totally freakin’ despise. There’s no in between. You’re with ‘em or against ‘em, and you’ll fight mo-fos who don’t see things your way.

LOVE Coldplay, Metallica, Skrillex, KISS, and U2. Don’t HATE any of them. Sometimes I more so rate music as “would I pay money to go see them?” I may buy music by some of them but not necessarily pay for the ticket or spend the time to go see them. Dave Matthews is the one local to me, here in Virginia as they are from Charlottesville, VA (used to live there).

I believe in supporting local AND I do have a greatest hits CD. Can’t say its all out LOVE for the band but I like them.

I would have to say Nickleback is not on the list because I know a lot of people that hate them but … nowadays … none that like them and/or will admit it.

How do you make a list of artists you love or hate and leave out Nickelback? They’re the ultimate love or hate band cause they’re the most loved and most hated band in the world (and I’m on the hate side).

Belle and Sebastian seem to have that effect too.

Will probably take heat for this, but I really can’t stand The Black Keys. Very uninteresting music, in my opinion, and so many people love them.

Tom Waits.

Agree with a lot of these. Phish, Morphine, Nickelback, Switchfoot, Cake, Flaming Lips, and The Grateful Dead could easily make the list.

Morphine…?! Mark Sandman is/was one of my favorite singers, but who ever hated them?

I would throw Rush on here too. Otherwise, solid list.

Good list, def could see Phish on it, but overall great list. And props for acknowledging that Vampire Weekend is hated by many, despite the obvious positive stance on them displayed by COS.
