Is the criteria "getting involved in weird kinky stuff with women"?

Skimming through this thread, NOZE seems to know what's right. Also, I'll defend Oasis to whoever wants to come at me. Also this:

There's some strong stuff from the 80s, but yeah it pales in comparison to the 90s (and 60s/70s).

Well, its not that simple. Chim says he loves 90s music... EXCEPT for radiohead.

I can understand how people would not like radiohead..m IF they don't like rock or alternative etc. As a whole. But to single them out specifically, when you admittedly love the genre? Truly bizarre.

Would be like a rap aficionado saying Jay-Z sucks or something. They "could" have that opinion; it'd just be wrong.

My stance on Radiohead is that The Bends is one of my favorite albums and OK Computer is also great, but after that they lost me. Is that bizarre?

It's not just wrong, don't be an *******.

I find their music boring (as in hard to get into). I have tried to like them. I can't get into them. Some of the earlier stuff was ok, the later stuff sucks dick.

A better example would be if someone said they love seafood, but don't like octopus because they don't like the texture. Totally ok to have that opinion.

People getting so uppity about musical tastes and preference is just so lol.

ETA: I also didn't single them out specifically. In the very same post I said I don't like Pearl Jam. There are others from the genre I don't like (I said Deftones later in this very thread).

Agree. Rolling stones come in a strong 3rd to me behind radiohead and beatles.

I think you're right, too-theres a different stones song for any occasion.

as far as 90s go, I'm not sure if they got a proper shoutout, but I loved the cranberries so very much

Paint It Black is a pretty good song, but it's lost a lot of likeability for me with all the emo douches I've known who act like THIS IS THE GREATEST SONG EVER ERHMEGERD IT TOTALLY SPEAKS TO ME BECAUSE I'M SO DARK.

I would drop 90s behind 60s and 70s, but it's fairly accurate after that, I think. It's pretty close with the bottom 3 for me. Don't sleep on the 80s, some really good acts once you sift past the ****ty pop and the affront to society that is hair metal.

Not really. I kinda lost interest after Kid A / Amnesiac, and even those two I don't revisit very often. I mean, I still listen to new stuff when it comes out, usually, but it doesn't penetrate my consciousness the way The Bends and OK Computer did.
