    Probably shouldn't have happened.

    Been watching a load of old music videos on YouTube today. For me Freddie Mercury's solo stuff was pretty awful.

    What else in the music industry probably should not have happened?

    The Spice Girls and any artist/group that has been a product of Pop Idol, X Factor or Britains Got (No) Talent. Simply awful.

    Yes should never have conceived never mind formed.

    Pink Floyd should have formed to make some of DSOTM then immediately disbanded and I wouldn't have cared if they hadn't recorded anything at all.

    It's funny that The Monkees, the original manufactured boys' band, became a global sensation by mistake.

    Never been a fan of him or queen, but I have to say some of the stuff he put out when he knew he was dying was great changed my opinion of him.

    Queen were bloody awful as well.

    The trend of the never ending, dull as dishwater guitar solo type band. Genesis and the like. There are very few who pull that thing off - Neil Young for example - and the rest is incredibly tedious.

    Plan B going pop. I remember seeing him when he was still a rapper and was very impressed with him. Since then he's been a hard working but dull artist.

    T in the Park chasing the Radio 1 crowd. That's as fickle as they come, the crowd deserts you after a while and in the end it alienated the more traditional festival goer in Scotland. Now they're stuck with the same Biffy/Killers/Kings of Leon/Insert Lad Rock Band Here cycle of headliners as there are now few that will sell tickets.

    There are also a lot of bands who could have been much more successful by splitting at a certain point, taking a few years out, then making a bigger stir by reuniting for a reunion tour, more albums etc. Sonic Youth, Idlewild etc.

    The laughing gnome by David Bowie or McCartneys Frog Chorus are serious blemishes on two of musics greats.

    T fell away badly towards the end same bands every couple years then went very dancy a lot of things improved over the years but the main the the music declined in my opinion. Used to look forward to my w/end at balado

    Generally, but I really like a few of the songs, especially The Beat Goes On

    That is some statement!!

    If you'd ended it by saying from 1979 onwards then you'd have a point.

    Weller breaking up The Jam to form The bloody Style Council is the ultimate should never have happened.

    Nope. Horrible “music” for pissed up Blackpool hen nights. Have a few musician friends who think the same way. Tawdry Poundland rock.

    I don’t think I can fully explain how much I hate the music of Queen 😞

    Too much hate there and I wouldn't really pay too much attention to what musos say. I don't quite get the hen night connection at all. And Poundland rock is an odd phrase to use given the band's extravagances!

    I haven't listened to them for a long time and will probably never listen to them again in my life but they were an essential part of the mid 70s for me and an awful lot of others.

    Basically the Doors without Jim Morrison.

    And there's your problem right there. It's never about the music with them, it's about "extravagance", "flamboyance", where the music is hideously overworked, overproduced tosh. It's aged horribly. Add the fact they never had the shame to turn down an "opportunity" - apartheid South Africa immediately springs to mind. Tory rock.

    In terms of the 70s the CBGB crowd is far more worthy of the ridiculous status bestowed to Queen - Blondie, Television, The Ramones or even British bands like the Buzzcocks, Peter Perrett/The Only Ones and the like.

    Bee Gees should not have done disco. Previously excellent songwriters doing "meaningless songs in very high voices".

    Have to disagree, some brilliant songs on both albums. Seen them 3 times and they were class each time.

    Kings of Leon from album 4 onwards.

    First three albums all had absolutely cracking songs that were a bit different.

    Only by the night just chased the pop crowd. It was essentially what t in the park did. Sold out big style.

    I didn't see them play Murrayfield after that album, but I asked someone who did if they played the bucket. They didn't know that song ffs.

    Come Around Sundown has some great tunes; Pyro, Back Down South and Radioactive are excellent.
