Is there any band you feel embarrassed about liking? 
 
Personally, there's a band called Alesana that I'm really enjoying. I feel like I shouldn't, but I do. 
 
How about you?

Spice Girls, I am man enough to admit it.

Neurosonic. They're like a sherbet pumped My Chemical Romance with a douse of Fallout Boy...but damn are their songs got some fun beats.

I hate to be *that* guy, but I'm not embarrassed or ashamed of liking any of the bands or artists I listen to.  I listen to pretty much everything from Black Flag to The Drifters to NWA so I get lots of people telling me that stuff I listen to is crap.  After a while you realize they are all idiots and ignore them.
 
I do however leave out certain bands or artists I like depending on who I'm talking to, like a cute girl.  NO girl wants to hear me tell them that Rush is a fantastic band.  NO girl understands how great David Bowie's Let's Dance album is.

Panic! At the Disco and Fall Out Boy used to make some catchy-ass music.  
 
Also Paramore, but that's only because their fanbase is incredibly dumb.

Alesana jams.

Hadouken my girl friend got me into them :L

Alesana, I saw them live!
They sounded like teenage boys on stage, but I guess they actually were...
 
Only band I feel a lil embarrassed about must be Ot3P.
It's a very good band, but it's rather dark and the lyrics can be something else.
Not music you'd put on with your door wide open on a summer day...least I wouldn't.

None because who cares.
 
Guess I agree with @kmdrkul and @Skillface, Panic! at the Disco was the absolute shit, especially their first album.

#10 Posted by DarkS29 (78 posts) -

quite a few i find most bands have some redeeming factor most recent one is girl generation

#11 Posted by Three0neFive (2327 posts) -

Dragonforce.
 
I recognize that they're terrible musicians from a technical point of view, but goddamnit if Once in a Lifetime didn't get me through a rough time in my life...

#12 Posted by MightyMayorMike (448 posts) -

For me it's a band called Gliss. Not so much embarrassed as it's a band I like that I don't really tell anyone, haha.

You mean Glis?  The industrial trance band?  You crazy, they're one of the best industrial bands ever.

Angels and Airwaves. I don't know why they get so much hate... I love the spacey rock feel. The lead singer for Blink 182 always sucked in that band but here... I dunno, I just think it works. 
 
I love their stuff.

Well, mainly because of the majority of their fans that scream "OMG SHAWN IS LIEK SO HAWT!!!1!!!111!!!!". 
 
Yes, I know not all are like this, but I hate to be grouped in with them.

Emmure.  I realize everything but their first album is basically crap, but I still love listening to them.  To me, it's the same as enjoying a stupid action movie.  It's put together horribly, the dialogue sucks, but it's still awesome.

#20 Posted by WoodenPlatypus (1389 posts) -
@Dysnomia:
I can see where your coming from. 
The "BR00T4L" kids :( 
I just stay away from the fan base these days.

#23 Posted by Bigheart711 (1272 posts) -

I feel kinda embarrassed whenever my stepparents witness me listening to Scandal (The all-girl J-Rock band, not that shitty R&B group from two decades ago!)

#24 Posted by Herocide (447 posts) -

Urghgherthgnb, Breaking Benjamin.

#25 Posted by sgjackson (537 posts) -

Avenged Sevenfold circa like City of Evil, Motley Crue, other hair metal.

Oh my god, I forgot all about Emmure. I completely agree with you on them.

I guess if i had to pick id say Green Day and My Chemical Romance since were in a time where there cool to hate. Also theres A Fine Frenzy since i dont know how cool it is to like a chick and her piano but she has a nice voice and its rather peaceful music to throw on while playing through a frustraring game.

  G-Masta, it's catchy, empowers Freedom and Democracy (great to see that the Koreans caught on), and it plays after Starcraft games.

Never feel ashamed for liking them.
I'll admit to digging some Justin Timberlake hits.
Yeah i went there.

A lot of guys dont understand how great that album is, its a god damn shame.  
 
But im the same way, im not ashamed of anything i listen to. I love all the bands i listen to, no exceptions. 
#37 Posted by Toxin066 (3403 posts) -

Blink 182 is my closet band.

#38 Posted by SpiralStairs (1020 posts) -

I will shamelessly listen to Hannah Montana if it is on the radio, I will even roll down my car's windows and sing along.
 
At the same time I listen to powerviolence, shoegaze, and indie shit, which I'm not ashamed of either.

Linkin Park mastered the form of the remix with Reanimation and Collision Course.

Its not cool to hate Green Day, their new album is just a copy and paste of American Idiot. The first act of the album was enjoyable but it all went downhill after that, it could have been much better. I really liked American Idiot despite old fans saying its nothing like their old stuff, which is the main reason i liked it. Their old music became way to wash and repeat, but it seems they went back into that trend. And i wont comment on My Chemical Romance, from what i heard of them i hated, but i wont give an opinion on a band that i only heard a few songs from. 
#41 Posted by crusader8463 (14756 posts) -

No, because I don't give a shit about what people think about the music I like. If I like the song I like the song. I'm not going to deprive myself of something I enjoy because some idiots around me don't like it.

#42 Posted by FiestaUnicorn (1669 posts) -

tatu and whoever did the bluegrass tribute to Metallica.
#43 Posted by Labbo94 (166 posts) -

I don't mind admitting that I like some "scene" bands like Alesana, Vanna, Pierce the Veil, etc. The actual music is pretty shitty, but it's good workout music and some of the fans tend to be cool people (unlike a bunch of uppity hipster douchebags).
 
I am embarrassed to like some pretty girly bands, like Mayday Parade, My Chemical Romance, All Time Low, Artist vs. Poet, etc.
 
My musical taste depends very much on my mood :|

Vampire Weekend

#45 Posted by MisterMouse (3599 posts) -

hmm, for me it would probably have to be Little Boots, maybe just because it has a strong liking amongst other communities.

@Abyssfull:  One of my best friends cousin was the bassist in Neurosonic 
Now the bassist is in an awful band called Crashcene or something stupid

 Nah brah i don't think i have one even if i did i wouldn't care about the opinion of others......but no i don't think i listen to a band shunned by anyone, most of the bands i like tend to be heavily praised for the music.

#50 Posted by Everyones_A_Critic (6500 posts) -

Nickelback, Rihanna, and a host of other artists that I mostly listen to under the influence because they're catchy as Hell (Eiffel 65...yeeeeaaaaah..........).
