    Your “Room 101” for music, musicians and bands

    What would you put into your Room 101 when it comes to music? You get three picks.

    My first is technically proficient bands who offer little in the way of excitement. Seen The 101 at Belladrum who could play their instruments well but were dull as dishwater. Compare that with bands like Retro Video Club and Parliamo who weren’t perfect and had tech issues but poured everything into it and I know what I’d rather watch every day of the week.

    Second is bands who play the exact same set every night. I like not knowing what song is coming next and with the invention of the web it just seems lazy. Sleaford Mods do it and they’re just a laptop and a mic ffs.

    Third is Queen. I hate, and that’s without hyperbole, everything they’ve done. I hate how they can’t leave a song alone when they’re on the cusp of a good idea, I hate their pomposity, I hate how they tour with a reality show contestant, I hate how their fans seem to assume that everyone adores them and wants to hear them in every pub, club and bus home. Entirely without merit.

    Foo Fighters. Samey, rock by numbers. I got dragged to see them live a few years back and Dave Grohls 'nicest man in rock' persona just came across as a bit conceited as well (although I'm sure he is quite a nice man). My girlfriend likes them which about sums them up.

    Simple Minds. Jim Kerr thinks he is Bono and the band thinks they are U2.

    U2. Bono thinks he is Jim Kerr and the band thinks they are Simple Minds.

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    The Bee Gees. Yes I know they're all dead or at deaths door but a more arrogant bunch of twats you'd be hard pushed to find.

    U2. Just because of Bono who thinks he's the new Messiah

    Morrisey!!!!

    They would be mine. Can't take to them at all.

    Also agree with Sean re all the rap stuff and that, 90% of the crap that's in the charts just now sounds indistinguishable from each other.

    Those of us that experienced the 90's are very fortunate.

    Sting.

    Hate his voice and his arrogance.

    I should probably like the Police's music but I just can't detach him from them.

    Rap seems to have gone backwards. There was some top notch rap music in the late 80s, through the 90s probably up until early Eminem.

    I haven't heard any new rap music that I've liked for years.

    Deltron 3030 are great.

    Seen a few mentions of U2 on here and while I can’t disagree with the criticisms of Bono, I think it is probably an injustice to their earlier work.

    War and The Unforgettable Fire were fine albums at the time and and had their own distinct sound. The Joshua Tree was just simply massive, one of those albums that sits in a particular and relatively small category of being epochal.

    i pretty much stopped listening to them after that though, didn’t really like Rattle and Hum and Madchester and hip-hop had firmly taken over on my list of musical priorities

    David Bowie, out of tune ****

    Phil Collins, no explanation required ;)

    Coldplay, banal dross

    That's my starter for 3 - I have many, many more

    The Beatles overrated and no really that good.
    The Jam/Paul Weller never tire of hitting him with a shovel
    Elvis be honest he wasn't very good

    Paul McCartney.

    He’s lived off John Lennon for the past 40 years (much like Roger Taylor and Brian May have been doing for many years with Freddie). Although, if anyone hasn’t seen his carpool karaoke with James Corden, you should watch it. It’s superb, and that’s coming from someone who can’t stand either of them.

    Opinions eh! The Beatles are the outstanding band of the last century, so many good songs. Inspired so many others as well. Wish I had a drop of the talent someone like McCartney has, he is a modern day great like Mozart, Beethoven or Amadeus.

    I'd stick people who don't like The Beatles and Paul McCartney in Room 101.

    I thought they were pretty average until I heard their Wasting Light album, it's excellent. So I listened to the others properly and there's some decent stuff in there, if not as good as that one.

    I think people maybe mention the Beatles in these threads to get a reaction.

    Beatles do nothing for me, but I wouldn't stick them in room 101.

    If it has to be only three then it's Lulu (infuriatingly annoying and Weegie), Adele (bafflingly overrated) and Queen (just meh).

    A Day In The Life is, I used to play euphonium in a local orchestra and appreciate the composition of it very much.

    Well done you for picking their worst ever song. For all I know it might be on a par with Mozart, having never knowingly listened to any of his err...stuff.

    Queen were fantastic, great songs, great concerts and what a voice from Freddie. Seen them many times, in the early 70s, 80s and with Paul Rodgers and the current guy Adam Lambert.

    Lambert is much better than Rodgers, he brings a huge presence to the stage, and gets the songs over very well and puts on a very good show.

    Each member of the original band have written number 1s, although for me they were more an album band, with 2 or 3 superb songs in each album.

    Quite why anyone would put them in room 101 is beyond me.

    Now U2, never liked them bar the odd tune, and its the same with Bowie, his voice just grates with me.
