Column: Music. The Heartbeat of our World – The Opposite of Favorite

Z. Mitchell, Anchor, Senior Staff Writer

Welcome back to Music. The Heartbeat of our World. This time, I will be talking about my 5 least favorite bands, and why. #1 is going to be the one I hate the most. #5 will be the least.

  1. Iron Maiden

I am not a huge fan of metal. In fact I hate most metal. This is not the band I hate the most though. I’m not saying that I like this band, I’m just saying that I don’t extremely hate it. Like most metal, it has the whole gallop picking technique, and double bass. The only reason why it’s on this spot in the list is because I’m actually able to hear what the guitars are doing. That differentiates it from most metal bands.

  1. Nickelback

Do I even need a reason for this? They practically make fun of themselves. I saw a video where the lead singer asked if anyone was ready to hear some Nickelback. Silence. No one said anything. He asked again. Silence. Then he said “Whatever. We’re leaving.” THEN everyone started cheering. So, I don’t think I need to go into any further depth of this.

  1. Nirvana

I’m tired of hearing about the song “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” It’s the most simple song ever. Plus, Kurt Cobain really cannot sing. Also ask someone if they know who Jimi Hendrix is. They’ll say no. Ask someone who Kurt Cobain is, and they’ll say, “Oh the left-handed guy from Seattle.”. That honestly sounds a lot like Jimi Hendrix to me.

  1. Metallica

They made a huge mistake kicking Dave Mustaine. Even if he was impossible to work with, he’s a lot better than Kirk Hammett who, whenever he messes up, immediately turns on that wah pedal. Lars Ulrich is already a laughing stock of the drum community. He has this huge drumset and only plays a 4 beat.

  1. Avenged SevenFold

It’s just an emo metal band. The names sound absolutely terrible.  Synyster Gates, and Zacky Vengeance. Really? The vocals and guitar playing don’t do anything for the band either. All the guitar does is play some evil harmonies and people think that it’s true talent.
