Now, let me start off by saying that I don’t know either one of the guys pictured above. I don’t know their personalities, I don’t know their families, and to be honest I had to Google one of their names. That being said, the one thing I know is that I can’t stand their music. Now, I’m not saying that you, the reader of this post, can’t like their music, but it’s what I can’t help but call “bro-rock”. You know those guys right. They are the guys at the high school or college parties that are trying to open beer bottles with their teeth or punch you in the arm too hard when saying ‘hi’ and calling you ‘Bro’.
Well, as most of you probably know, Bart caught a bunch of crap on Twitter for simply saying that he doesn’t like Creed. All of the sudden people were bashing his Christianity, his looks, his ministry. It was pretty unbelievable, actually. The funny thing was, most of the people bashing him were focussing on how ‘hot’ Scott Stapp was or something similar. Seems like they have a pretty deep fan base.
Anyway, if you’ve followed this blog or my Twitter at all you know that when I’m on the road I have a strict ‘No Nickelback’ rule on the bus. That obviously goes for the house too. Creed is right there too, but I don’t know if I’ve ever been as passionate about it.
So here’s my question today. We all have music that we strongly dislike. That doesn’t make it bad, it just makes it bad to you. So what’s your absolute least favorite style of music? And yes, bro-rock is a genre…. I think.
