I had the exact opposite situation, i used to like them as a kid and then from 1998 to 2012 i never cared for them and felt embarrassed by the lyrics, the band, axl.

But Chinese got me. Slowly, but got me good. And nowadays im a diehard fan again.

Yo, I stopped actually trying to figure out lyrics years ago and it's made life so much better. It's just an extra instrument.

Plus with all the brick-walling going on you can barely hear them anyway so why bother.


Yes, I'm aware that some people don't pay attention to lyrics. That's not and has never been me. I try not to dwell unreasonably on them, but they're as much a part of the song as anything, and in this case they stuck out.

Glad to see I'm not the only one with whom these feelings I share

I think the band for whom there is the widest gap between how intensely I once loved them vs. how much I care to listen to them now is Guns N' Roses. There was a period of about two years, freshman and sophomore year in high school I'd say, where probably 50-60% of my listening was committed to this band; had I been aware of internet forums back then, I would have no doubt showered them with gushing superlatives that I would now be embarrassed to know were preserved via the Wayback Machine. For some reason I felt compelled to listen to "Use Your Illusion I" last night -- I legitimately used to love every single song on this record, but last night almost every single song on it sounded unfathomably and irredeemably terrible ("Don't Cry" and "November Rain" still sound pretty good, and I still seem to have a soft spot for "Bad Apples"). I also made the mistake of reading along with the lyrics -- gadzooks, Axl really comes up with some zingers:

"Sick of this life
Not that you'd care
I'm not the only one
With whom these feelings I share"

"My mother never really said much to me
She was much too young and scared to be
Hell, Freud might say that's what I need
But all I really ever get is greed"

It's remarkable how virtually none of this retains even basic nostalgic appeal for me -- it just sounds really, really bad.

I did the UYI listen a few years back to similar outcome.

I've been going down a Thin White Duke era k-hole lately, for no real reason other than hearing someone do a great version of Young Americans at a karaoke event last week.

I wish Roger Clyne was working at a Circle K instead of making his shitty music.

What an embarrassment to the great Southwestern music scene.

THis was the first time I saw RATM. We were down front and got battered.
Fuck me it was worth it. The quality of the tape is crap but their ability and craft punch through

Probably not the most important question ever, but why does Sufjan insist on wearing those stupid hats?

This place used to be great for discovering new artists, now that's limited to the jazz and metal threads. The whole front page is just bullshit. What the fuck happened?

Hey Pete, did you see The Get Up Kids announced a new album? I did and I thought of you.
