ahdn_paul_06 So most people who don't like One Direction or Justin B. have to actually hear their music before they complain about them.

Yes. Its only fair. And then once you hear them you can go right back to hating their music with a passion.a-hard-days-night-john-1

Whut ? One Direction and Justin B. made music ? I think we didn't hear the same thing, I'd call that noise, like every sound coming out of non-talented guys these days, sad isn't ?

And well, The Beatles overrated ? Who's the little jealous guy who said that haha ? Do you know a band that made what they made to music ? I don't !

ahdn_paul_06 Yep and here is One Direction's best song ever

 

 

It's kinda funny that the Beatles in the beginning were seen the same way as people look at modern pop

One of only three One Direction songs I've ever heard.  I originally heard it presented as a rip-off of Baba O'Riley, so that might have biased me.

 

Personally, I don't care enough about people like One Direction or Justin Bieber to hate them.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

Believe me I hate one direction and I hate Justin Bieber. I think music has hit rock bottom. Its a damn shame that they have become so famous. But I'm just saying you should hear a few of their songs, or anyone's songs, first, before you form an opinion. And I can see that my opinion is clearly in the minority here, but thats just kinda what I think. And in the case of One Direction/justin bieber, they really don't deserve more than a few minutes of your time, but you gotta hear a song or two before you complain. 

 

Note- I am an no way supporting One direction or Justin Beiber. Believe me. I have absolutely no respect for them.

Yes, this a shitty song. But now you've heard it and can fairly say that they are shitty band.

[Not aimed at Clarabelladog (when did the name change?)]

I don't get that attitude and its spreading more into culture. Why does anyone want to complain about what they haven't seen, heard etc? Its becoming more coomon nowadays - 30 people complain about a comment aired on tv to the tv watchdog, it gets in the media who hype it up and then 67,534 folk get irate and complain bitterly to the tv watchdog about the original comment based entirely on the newspaper article without actually having seen or heard whatever it is they are now irate over. 

Listen to a bit of the music before moaning, even if its just 30 seconds (you can't know the food stinks without having at least smelt/seen it (within reason)). 

I dislike Justin, his music is dreadful, same as with Miley, 1D, The Wanted, but i have heard a bit of it (not all because i would throw myself out the window first, and it wasn't by choice). Same with Modern Jazz, the very little i've heard makes me not want to go anywhere near that type of music and complain bitterly about how awful i find it.

Nice little antijazz zing there too! (Listening to a Bobby Hutcherson record from 1965 right now)

Black eyes Peas should not have as many pop hits as they do.

Sprngsteen and the E Street Band.  I mean, they're okay, but really, not worth the giddy praise they have often received.

And I believe that the decision for Time magazine to put his face on their cover in 1975 marks the beginning of the long slow trivialization of news media and its eventual symbiosis with Entertainment.

Have they been rated highly by anybody? Aside from their fans? I hope not. They're truly awful.

There seen more like Justin B. and One Direction. But the fact that they get a song like Imma Be on the pop charts is overrated enough.

C'mon. What about "I've Got A Feeling that tonight's gonna be a good night, that tonight's gonna be a good night, that tonight's gonna be a good good night, that tonight's gonna be a good good good good good good good good good good good good night" (ok i might have exaggerated the last nline)?

One song i can honestly say i despise with a fierce loathing.Where Is The Love wasn't bad tho was played to death and folk were far too willing to attribute so much to an average song. 

Didn't they also give us Will I Am?

And i agree about Bruce Springsteen, he's got some very good material but not worthy of the status that has been attached to the man.

Wow, that piece-o-crap was a Black Eyed Peas "song"? I hate 'em even more now! (All this time I assumed it was Daft Punk)

Good to see I'm not the only one who feels that way. Some of his songs are stellar, but for the most part - meh. 'Born in the USA' makes me wish I wasn't.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

Yeah, I like Springsteen, but he's not legendary.
