    Friday OT - Bands ruined for you by oversaturation

    Are there some bands you loved before the radio played the crap out of them, or before you started hearing them everywhere?

    I loved Kings of Leon before they were played to death a few summers ago, now I just turn the channel. I hate that I'm starting to get burnt out on the Black Keys, too.

    Re: Friday OT - Bands ruined for you by oversaturation

    I mostly listen to stuff pre-1990.

    Four Seasons - and now I just really don't appreciate any falsetto male lead vocal acts (Lou Christie, Little Anthony, etc).

    Neil Diamond - was never a big fan or anything, but now I pretty much have to change the station.

    Elvis Presley


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    AC/DC & Led Zeppelin. I can't listen to the radio anymore.


    [like the bands- just tired of their hits]

    ac/dc
    gnr
    led zep

    All they play on Lazer is the hits, they never play a random song from the albums and it starts to suck. I now change the station whenever previously mentioned bands are in the lineup.

    Re: Friday OT - Bands ruined for you by oversaturation

    + 1 on Black Keys and I love them. Funny that was the first band I thought of when I read the thread title. But when you crank out new albums at a pace of about every 10 months...

    VanHagar! Give me classic VH instead.


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    Re: Friday OT - Bands ruined for you by oversaturation

    I don't know if over saturation has really ruined a band for me, but I choose to listen to their music in my free time less if their over-saturated.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Friday OT - Bands ruined for you by oversaturation

    I don't actively listen to Top 40/Pop, but my girls do, so I get exposed quite a bit. Some of it I find "not bad", but wow do they overplay pretty much everything in the current top 10. It's easy to like a song/artist and the next week be so sick of them due to hearing the song every time that station is put on.

    The Rhianna/Eminem song "Monster" is a perfect example.

    This. If the radio would just learn to play something besides the same 4 songs from each band it would be different.

    Also, the hook/chorus of any song my daughter likes. It becomes oversaturated in a 20 minute car ride.
