There are a decent number of bands that are fairly ridiculed or looked down upon on here to the point where it’s a near consensus. Whether understandably (the 311s of the world) or inexplicably (the Counting Crows of the world).
But if you like any of these bands (and based on the teenage top ten thread, I think some people do), it’s time to go public and make a playlist to defend them or try to convert others. I’m adopting @ericVI’s rules since those worked so well and added a degree of difficulty.
- 12 songs or 60 minutes, whichever you hit first
- Studio albums only
- If you’re using 4 or more albums by a band, don’t let any album take up more than 1/3rd of the playlist
- Bonus: If any popular singles make your list, you’re allowed to remove one if you think it’s not going to help your case (I’m calling this “The Long December” rule) and replace it with something else. Just make note of it.
