most everything played on XM Satellite station 26, which would include James Blunt, Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson, Train, Coldplay... most every artist/band mentioned so far.

Dave Matthews, but I can't decide who's more annoying: Him or his fans.

His fans. Mainly because I am sure he showers.

Forgot to mention one:

Yellowcard - if they just made their bland music and left it at that, I'd just ignore them and be done with it, but they made two videos that really annoyed me. First they do an idiotic remake of Run Lola Run. (WTF?) Then they make a video that takes meaningful political protests of the last 50 years and turns them into a trite statement about his college girlfriend. The final moments of this one make my skin crawl. Oh and most annoying band member besides the lead singer? The violinist. Ugh.

I find them sorta annoying but still enjoy their music overall.

A few recent groups that are too annoying to bear, however:

- Maroon 5 (though their latest single is OK)
- The Fray
- Rob Thomas / Matchbox 20
- Chris Daughty
I think with The Decemberists and Bright Eyes is they represent what's really bad about the whole indie folk revival. Also, they've been massively hyped and when you get to hear them, it's disappointing and confusing to see what all the fuss is about. Specially Bright Eyes, which to me is just as annoying as Maroon 5 or all those groups you mentioned. Just because they label him as "indie" doesn't make him any better or less annoying. But I don't dislike the genre, mind you. Belle and Sebastian and Saturday Looks Good To Me (well, some people would say both bands are more like jangle pop but they've always sounded quite folkie to me) are 2 examples of good indie folk bands.

By the way, all of your choices are so spot on!

Yeah, the violinist is quite the asshole. Everytime you see his face, you just feel like wanting to slap him or something.

She was otherwise cool and fun to be around, but Goddamnit I hated that music.

Music like that was simply inescapable back then, every friggen party some jackass would put it on. If I heard that "Tires are the things on the car that make contact with the road" song one more time, somebody was going to die.

It was part of the whole adoration of the music of the 60s and 70s thing that was happening at the time. I mean, fer Crissake, the Pixies, Tribe Called Quest, Ministry, Fishbone, Primus, My Bloody Valentine and Public Enemy were in their prime; grunge was finally on the radio (this was before it started to suck); electronic music like early Orb, Black Dog, Orbital, early prodigy and and early Moby was just starting to happen (this was also before it started to suck) and everyone was still fixated on how cool "No Quarter" sounded stoned. Gah!!!!

It's good to see that I wasn't alone in my opinion.

Hehehe, I guess you're gonna have to keep getting flac for this.

That's hard to believe. This actually reminds of the Lost episode where Sawyer is singing "Redemption Song" and Michael plays him with a taunt and Sawyer responds back saying: "What? You don't like Bob Marley?" and Michael says: "Man, WHO doesn't like Bob Marley?" Great exchange!

Anyway, obviously no artist is universally loved but I think you're the first person I know who doesn't like his music. And fortunately I don't have to get stoned to appreciate it

Now, I can do without a few crap musicians that like to namecheck Marley as an influence in their music, like Coldplay and Wyclef Jean.

Same here. I didn't like any of her songs then I saw her on vh1 coming out of a club and saying "F**k You" as she was signing autographs to her fans then getting into a car and opening the window and spitting on the people. It was disgusting.
