    Re: Friday OT - Bands ruined for you by oversaturation

    I generally listen to the local classical station. I called in one time to make a request and the studio host(DJ) said "we just played that piece 3 weeks ago."

    I never really cared for them anyways, but I'll change the station whenever a Black Keys song comes on.

    This is Rihanna, in college whenever Rihanna came on it was our groups cue to leave the room.

    Re: Friday OT - Bands ruined for you by oversaturation

    I enjoyed early Foo Fighters, but not so much the newer stuff. Even if I were a big fan of their newer stuff, though, they're on the radio ALL. THE. TIME.

    Re: Friday OT - Bands ruined for you by oversaturation

    Metallica was the first one for me, but they had a lot to do with that themselves.

    Take my man card away, because I really liked Lorde when they first made the scene, but cripes, I can't get into the car anymore with the wife (her radio station) without hearing them. They are played...constantly.

    Re: Friday OT - Bands ruined for you by oversaturation

    One strategy I've employed to avoid over saturation:

    I don't listen to the radio. I listen to my ipod, or Spotify, or whatever. I have no one to blame but myself for most of the music I hear.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Before I opened the thread the KoL were what popped in my head instantly. I like their sound, but after that summer and their first few songs, I hear one or two notes and...click. Can't stand any of it now.

    Red Hot Chili Peppers for sure. Lourdes is gettng there quickly. Should say Mumford & Sons, but it never gets old to me.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Yes. Now it just grates on me. We get it, your sex is on fire. Shut up already.

    Re: Friday OT - Bands ruined for you by oversaturation

    As the dude would say, "Not the f**cking eagles man!"

    I used to love jamming to Buckcherry & Nickleback I still skip when they come up on my pandora or iTunes playlist.
    Every time I'm in the bar and some a-hole plays lynard skynard, the eagles, or hinder I want to shove a knife in my ears and take my own life.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    I've been a Black Keys fan since before Rubber Factory and I'm not burned out BUT...have you noticed how often their songs are on TV ads? It's a lot and to the point that if I were in their inner circle I'd suggest trying to "protect their brand" a bit better. Take it easy with the booze ads guys...

    Yeah, they're going the route of The Who (another band I love) - maybe pick and choose a bit more when you sell those songs.

    Say it ain't so Angie! Back in the day, Billy Joel, John Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen.
