Top Ten Bands/Artists I used to love but not anymore…

People go through this all the time when supporting bands in the major label industry. They used to like a band/artist before but not anymore. Fans stop supporting them ’cause of their new direction in music and other reasons. They were not as good as they once were. I am like that too and yes, there are bands and artists in the major label industry that I used to love but stopped liking them.

Here is a top ten in no particular order, enjoy the list, y’all…

  • U2 – I used to fuckin’ love U2. They used to be my favorite band. I used to love all of their music in the 80’s and early 90’s. I still love earlier U2 but their newer stuff is not that great. I think I stopped liking them after their “Zooropa” album. They used to be a great band but I lost my respect to Bono and the boys. “The Joshua Tree”, “Unforgettable Fire”, and “Achtung Baby” will always be my favorite albums of all time, though.
  • Guns N’ Roses – Like most, I was a huge fan of their 80’s stuff when they had all the original members. That was back when GN’R was great. “Appetite For Destruction” and “Use Your Illusion I and II” will always be classic albums, though. “Chinese Democracy” was a huge pile of shit.
  • Alice In Chains – I was only a huge fan of Alice In Chains only when Layne was in the band, of course. I’m not that crazy about their new singer. I still think the band shouldn’t have continued.
  • The Smashing Pumpkins – I don’t know what happened to Billy. He used to be a genius when James Iha and D’arcy was in the band but I don’t really like the band anymore with all the new members and stuff.
  • Sheryl Crow – Used to be a huge fan, she was a genius in her earlier days. Her first couple of records were amazing stuff but her recent stuff? Nah. Don’t really care for the direction she’s going.
  • Jewel – Used to be a huge fan of Jewel Kilcher, the Alaskan folk singer. Her first couple of records were genius but she is also going different directions lately. I miss the old Jewel when she would write powerful and amazing songs. She used to be my huge crush back in the day too.
  • Kid Rock – I liked him better back in his metal and rap days. His music was genius but not how he’s gone all country and southern rock, I can’t stand it. I think I lost my respect for him after he ripped off “Werewolves of London” and “Sweet Home Alabama”.
  • Stone Temple Pilots – Not sure if I’m gonna like this band anymore if they’re gonna treat Scott Weiland like shit and having that Linkin Park guy be the singer. No thank you. For that reason, I lost all respect to STP. Shame. They were a major part of my childhood. I grew up listening to them.
  • The Dave Matthews Band – I used to love DMB but I can’t stand them anymore. Their music is overrated. The guys in the band are talented musicians but Dave is just a shitty singer and songwriter.
  • KISS – I was only a fan of Kiss when Ace Frehley was in the band. I never cared to listen to them with their other members. I’m glad that they finally made the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame, though. That was long overdue.

I’m sure there’s more but those are the ones I can think of at the top of my head.
