I guess the title's pretty self explanatory. Do you have any songs that you love from a band you otherwise can't stand?

I'll go first...

The Doors - Touch Me

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PECk9A-07Pw

I normally can't stand The Doors. I find a lot of their songs to be repetitive, repetitive, repetitive, and dragged out for way too long. I'm also not a big fan of their sound (I'd guess you call it). Despite that, I could listen to this song any day of the week; I can't quite explain it.

Outkast - Hey Ya

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fi8rsCncwF8

This is even harder to explain. I don't like Outkast, I don't like its genre, and yet this constantly gets stuck in my head from out of the blue. I can't say the same thing for the millions of acoustic covers, however...

Hey ya is because that shit was generic mainstream shit that kids love I love outkast (ATL represent) but that shit just made me throw away my mp3 player.

I have to ask, exactly how many centimeters thick are the rims on your glasses?

Maybe it was insanely popular but it's still incredibly catchy and it's meant to be a silly, catchy song. It's not trying to be anything else and that's why it's good.

The whole "This song is bad because it's on every radio station" thing is for hipsters only. Want to know why that song is on every radio station? Because it's a fucking good song.

I'm a rap fan and I think they sold out (uh, became a sellout, either one), not necessarily because it was on 'every radio station'.

Anyone who has ever made any money in any artistic medium (music especially) has been called a sellout at one point or another; that really doesn't hold too much weight.

I don't in any way dislike Queen, but I'm just not a fan of its style at all.. However, I love this song for some reason.

Also...

Bruce Springsteen - Dancing in the Dark

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEJ26h_cBqQ

I know, as someone born and raised in New Jersey, that Bruce Springsteen is supposed to be my musical bread and butter all rolled into one. Yeah, no. No, no, no. Seriously, no. Except, of course, for this song. Maybe it's just because I'm waiting for the inevitable mash up with Bowie, "Let's Dance In The Dark". Who knows?

It's alright, son. That's natural.

I'm not really fond of Limp Bizkit, they're not bad, but meh, not really a fan of theirs.
That song was originally from The Who, but I prefer Limp Bizkit's cover to the original one tbh. >.<

As a band itself I prefer The Who over Limp Bizkit anytime. xP
