Yes my ears do seem to find Nickleback songs to definitely all sound almost the same and the same can be said for Matchbox 20. As for The Cure and B52s I never could stand either of them or see what anyone would appreciate in them yet many do. On the same note I love some of the hair metal stuff, loads of the Eagles songs and have every Pink Floyd album yet they dont appeal to everyone. Thankfully there is something for almost every musical palate out there.

Dave Matthews......nothing offensive about him, seems like an OK guy....with music that is as dull as anyone can be. Just don't understand the appeal.

The sameness of DM's songs is the major problem...

My boyfriend and I play a verbal version of Chicken in which we order things of a given category from most to least tolerable. When we play Fast Food Chicken, he always picks Subway as the worst and I always pick Taco Bell. When we play Terrible Band Chicken, he always picks REO Speedwagon or Foreigner and I pick Dave Matthews or ICP.  Pretty sure if either of us had heard enough Nickelback to judge, they would be in there somewhere.

REO Speedwagon or Nickelback are the musical equivalent of Subway - a bland attempt at universal appeal.  Dave Matthews and ICP are the musical equivalent of Taco Bell -  genre music gone wrong: Dave Matthews (jam band pablum) or ICP (detention-hall talent show hip-hop).

I agree with this assessment  more than a juggalo loves his Faygo soda pop!

You may add it but in the case of the first 3 mentioned, you'd be insane!

Given that, I suspect there's probably a few "big-hair" bands you hate that are awesome as well.

Let's see the list.

"The pickin's for Mr. Trower's live "unauthorized" recordings has increased lately.  I have picked up several fine recordings from the 70's when he still featured the great James Dewar. "
