Oh yes, I've heard those. They're all very bad.

My friends all laugh at them when they hear what I listen to. I believe other than constant laughing, the latest comment I can recall was when I was listening to The Best of Nina Simon and my friend said "do you kill people?" I think he said that because in movies it's popular for serial killers to listen to that type of music.

Others that get laughs are Nora Jones, Jack Johnson, Damien Rice, Gillian Welch, Nelly Furtado, No Doubt, can't think of anymore. Oh yes, if you want them to pee themselves, find the kyaal remix of Destiny's Child "Loose My Breath." Even my girlfriend makes fun of me when I play that song.

Wow, I love Einsturzende Neubauten! Best live show ever, they were pounding on giant brass vats and grinding pieces of metal
Good call on Status Quo, I never heard of them till I was in Europe and even then it was sort of a joke. I like a few songs.

If Neubauten is obscure, what about the Cocteau Twins?

I worked in a record store for two years back in the late 1980s. It's a good store with very knowledgeable owners. Anyway, being located near a high school we had quite a few customers from there. Some of them all dressed in black were into Laibach and stuff. But if my memory serves me, I think Cocteau Twins had a bigger following than Einstürtzende Neubauten. But then, so had Foetus and other Thirlwell stuff. Heck, even junk like the Revolting ***** seemed to have a larger following than the great German band. (I guess that's cheating with such a great name and all.) I kind of dug Big Black. Now, THAT is heavy. But I couldn't convince the black crowd. Most of them were Depeche Mode wimps anyway. And cheap. They would listen for hours but rarely buy anything. "Can you put on track two on this?" ("Stephany Says" on the Velvet Underground VU album.) The hard rock/heavy metal crowd I liked, despite not sharing their taste in music (unless we talk Ozzy Black Sabbath, Motor Head, and such classics). Dedicated and knowledgeable and often a lot more open-minded. At least as far as music goes.

Having that said, no record collection is complete without some early Einstürtzende Neubauten, like Halber Mensch or the collection Strategies Against Architecture, Volume 1. Hard to find better antidote to the usual MTV jingles than those.

They're mainstream! What about my favourites like Heidi Berry, or The Changelings? (The Atlanta-based Changelings, not the other ones)
