    Exactly this. You have no person to blame other than yourself if you allow music you like to be ruined by oversaturation

    Oh, yeah, those three were on all of the time, too.

    It's killing me about the Black Keys. I still enjoy them, but my ability to listen for long is lower.

    Re: Friday OT - Bands ruined for you by oversaturation

    Metallica - after "And Justice For All" not only did their music get progressively worse, it got way over-played...and I say that as someone who loved their first 3 albums.

    Agree with Angie on the Foo Fighters, great band, but man they're on the radio every 5 minutes.

    The White Stripes is another one...it's not as bad now as it was a few years ago though...although pretty much any hit by current bands like the Black Keys and KoL just gets played to death and ruins the songs for me...that's the problem with radio these days, they just repeat the same stuff over and over until it's ruined.

    I say sell out while you can. Good for the Black Keys for cashing in while they're at the height of their popularity.

    Meanwhile, I'll throw in Mumford and Sons. I loved their first album, but I Will Wait for You got run into the ground, stomped to pieces, and urinated on by every top 40 radio station in the country. I have banjo fatigue.

    I've been a huge fan of The Black Keys since Magic Potion. It came out when I was just starting high school I think. When I first heard it, I checked out their older stuff too and fell in love. IMO they can do no wrong, no matter how much popularity they gain

    The radio killed Mumford and Sons for me.

    They are what I like to call 'fake folk'. Since there popularity I've noticed a new genre emerge, with artists like Avicci, called 'fake folk with beats' - that 'Hey Brother' song is just the worst

    Something a bit more insidious that I'm hating right now are two Pixies covers floating around TV. I've heard both Where Is My Mind and Gigantic lately on TV commercials.

    Fortunately pop music is just about done with the folk genre, so we can all go back to enjoying our mandolins and bolo ties in peace.

    Re: Friday OT - Bands ruined for you by oversaturation

    If I ever hear Hotel California or Old Time Rock & Roll again it'll be too soon.

    Both of those songs make me want to kick someone in the gooch. Otherwise I can deal with the Eagles in small doses. Seger is all good

    I mostly listen to my station that I set up on Slacker. I wield a quick ban hammer.

    Re: Friday OT - Bands ruined for you by oversaturation

    Back in the 90's I still liked Genesis and Phil Collins until I started working in a building where I could only get in one FM station. And they played A LOT of Genesis and Phil Collins to the point I have an aversion now.

    When I was young and working at Pizza Hut the guy who owned our jukebox was an Elton John fan and set it to play Elton John when nobody put money in it. Some of the worst memories of my life are scrubbing floors and toilets and stuff at 2am with Benny and the Jets blaring out the speakers. Ruined Elton John for me.

    More recently, I wouldn't say I'm a huge Maroon 5 fan personally but I have two daughters who really like them and I've just reached total saturation with them. Not just their music but with Adam Levine being on The Voice (again, my kids watch it) and whoring products on TV now...it's just too darn much and I can't take it!

    I've noticed the same thing I call it Crapgrass.

    For my old job, I had to go help out an office that dealt with patients. They piped in the same Bryan Adams CD over and over and over and over again. "All For One (And All For Love)" with him, Rod Stewart, and Sting (?) was burnt into my brain for weeks afterwards. It was traumatic.

    As Al_4_State mentioned, I don't normally listen to the radio - just in the car these days. Otherwise, it's Pandora or the like.

    I have an amended to approach to that.

    1. Listen to pop radio with regularity, even if you become old enough to think "there's just no good new music anymore." Occasionally, something will click --- and the dreck is no worse than the dreck always was.

    2. Do not listen in large chunks or too often.

    3. Similar to (2), listen to oldies/classic rock sparingly.

    4. Using Al-4-State blueprint, develop a personal "radio world."... add 1-2-3 to keep from becoming musically insular.
