I don't get the Beatles. They do nothing for me.

You don't like them or you don't get them, as in you don't get the appeal? Those are two different things. I'm not a Pink Floyd fan, but I see the appeal. Given the context, I would see the appeal of The Beatles as pretty apparent even someone wasn't a fan.

You mentioned Pink Floyd before, and I agree that they're boring.  I do like some of their bigger hits, but deep cuts and later albums are enough to put me to sleep.  However I see the appeal for stoners.  With the Grateful Dead, I don't even see that.

With the Grateful Dead, I think it was as much about the spirit of community among the band and its followers and the diverse set lists with regard to what was played and when as opposed to how it actually sounded. I once worked with a former Deadhead. He looked like any clean cut, white collar working, suburban, ultra responsible husband and dad, but in his 20s he traveled months at a time following the Grateful Dead on tour. Our co-workers were as surprised as I was to hear about his former life. He backed it up by showing us pictures of him with his long hair, tie dyed shirts (which he made and sold on the road along with scalping tickets to finance everything), and his many funny and crazy stories from the road. What I gathered from him was everyone had so much fun traveling around, just being together, and waiting for that obscure cover or deep album track that hadn't been played for several tours that the band playing sloppily and the singing sounding ragged was beside the point.

They were both shit, save for one or two good early songs. Most of the other music from this genre was complete garbage. It was enjoyable at the time, but he musicians were unskilled and the lyrics were forgettable. For what was the dominant scene in the UK in the mid-90s, my teenage years, music I spent almost all my money on at the time. I almost never listen to any of it anymore.

Pass marks only for Pulp and Manic Street Preachers who were both fantastic.Pulp were fantastic.  Manics were second-rate Clash ripoffs.  And The Clash weren't all that, student politics from posh pseudo-intellectuals dressing in working class music.
Radiohead are utter toss.  Classic example of emperor's new clothes.
Madonna was never hot.  From the same era the 39 year old Toni Basil was far more wankworthy.
Prince was massively overrated.  A few good songs but mostly experimental filler.  Bit like Michael Jackson.

I find Radiohead to be boring and unlistenable for the most part.

Madonna always took herself seriously, but around 1989-90 she crossed over into taking herself too seriously and then became not at all fun considering she made pop music and dance music that in its essence needed to be fun. This was when she lost any remaining connection she had to being a real person as opposed to a celebrity living in a sheltered fantasy land.

I live in Prince central and have never been a huge fan although I love all the big singles. However, since his death I can't escape him. If I never hear "Let's Go Crazy" again, it'll be too soon.

I look at the Grateful Dead the exact same way I look at Bruce Springsteen. They have quite a few individual songs that I love, however, their body of work as a whole falls far short IMHO. Plus, I just "don't get" their live performances. Sorry, three and four hour shows by these two bands while admirable, would put me asleep faster than 3 ambiens washed down with a bottle of Fireball. It's filler, it's outdated, it's just not necessary in 2019.

NIN and Tool are mostly awful, boring drivel, with the exception of a very few of their radio hits. I defy anyone to get through a full album.

I haven't heard anything of theirs that just sets my ears on fire.
Same with U2. Talk about overrated. They're probably at the top of my list.

I listen to everything & anything. Hip-hop has been a constant though. I think there is better hip-hop out there now than at any point in the past

John Lennon was absolute rubbish as a human being. He sang about peace and love, yet his first wife divorced him, in part because he beat her.

To ne, that totally undercut all of his efforts to become St. John of Liverpool. He always came off as a bit of a self-satisfied douche at his best.

I'm not sure Lennon ever aspired to be saintly.  If nothing else, he was always honest about the things that went on in his life, good and bad.  Off the top of my head I can probably name a few dozen rocks stars who shame Lennon when it comes to being a garbage human.
