In response to yogafriend's comment:
The first few that come to mind:
(I could easily go on ...)
Van Halen makes sense. YOu're a chick. Then again, Coldplay does not make sense. That's a major chick band.
AGree on Springsteen. Never got it and never will. His poseur style is annoying too.
I don't know any other way to say this, but I'm not your average bear. :)
Additionally, what makes sense is also very subjective, isn't it? Per the other thread, yes, I am now a big fan of the Scorpions.
I created a thread on them (at this rate ...) a couple / three years ago, and the posters here lavished so much praise on them I just had to check them out. They also sent recommendations, so I now own a couple of compilations (still looking for Lovedrive ...). Anyhow, you never know unless you check out the music for yourself, and find that you can surprise yourself. I have nothing against Springsteen, but as it pertains to this thread, he was the first big name that came to mind that I don't own.
As for Coldplay, no, I have never been a fan. A few of their hits are very good, but a little goes a long way for me. A close friend of mine saw them in concert and she said seeing them live was pretty amazing, so they may perform well live. I am, however, a huge fan of the band Keane, with whom they are somewhat likened and compared. Keane can kick Coldplay's a**, IMO. Song writing is superior, and the vocalist makes Chris Martin sound like a fog horn. :) To each their own.
