My input on some bands mentioned in this thread:

 

Rage Against The Machine - Still awesome. So many great riffs.

 

Nirvana - Used to be annoyed by them. Then I got into The Jesus Lizard and revisited In Utero and loved it.

 

Black Keys - I've only been able to get into one of their albums- Rubber Factory.

 

New Pornographers - I wouldn't lump them in with The Decemberists/Sufjan at all. They'll always be great in my mind for putting out Twin Cinema.

Yes, listening to the Jesus Lizard puts Nirvana in a whole new light. Cobain was a huge Scratch Acid fan as a teenager, and his guitar heroics and frontman intensity pretty much all come from there. Of course, I don't think Dave Yow influenced Cobain's feminine side...

I also honestly think that when most people talk about Weezer, they immediately talk about the greatness of their first two albums and are afraid to admit that the Green album and Maladroit are both pretty solid as well.

 

Weezer's decline didn't kick in for me until Make Believe, but oh boy, it kicked in hard.

I tried but couldn't get into Green or Maladroit. Both bored me to tears.

Wow. I thought I was the only one who thought blue was better than pinkerton.

I am not a fan of that album.

I hate pretty much all variations of Weezer. Quoth Chunklet: Pinkerton is an overlooked classic in the same way you find a dollar bill in the toilet that you didn't realize you ate before.

I'm with EStan on Weezer. I never quite saw the appeal -- though I at least understand why people would like those first two discs, but the rest of it is just a nightmare -- green and maladroit included.

 

As for the question at hand: There's an easy pick like Phish. Because yeah, I totally had my Phish phase longer back than I care to remember, and you couldn't pay me to go to one of those shows now. I'd chew through my cheek just to get to my ears if it kept me from hearing that.

 

Then there's definitely the Black Keys category, bands that were super-exciting once but now have kind of settled in and the shine has worn off a bit. The Shins surely qualify in that category, for me. I thought it was just the last album, but I spun Chutes Too Narrow a while back and it just didn't have the ol' appeal.

 

And then there's Jawbreaker, who I wore out back in the day, and now can't bring myself to listen to at all.

 

As for the likes of the Beatles and Zeppelin -- I totally get that. I go through quick, concentrated cycles of listening to those kinds of bands, and then I leave 'em alone for years. I did put Physical Graffiti on the turntable the other day, though, and In My Time of Dying might be their best song. Ever.

I guess I got so into Weezer back in the early/mid-'90s thanks to being younger when the Blue Album, which still resonates with me today, dropped. But yeah, after Pinkerton it all went to complete shite.

RATM put on possibly the greatest set ive ever been a part of, and based on that alone I can still revisit a lot of their songs. But yeah I cant remember the last time I put a rage album on from start to finish.

 

I used to be huge on the jungle scene in college, now I cant even get through a minute of it.

Hip hoppers I can no longer listen to; Eminem, Dilated peoples, Tha Alkaholics, CRU, J5, Blackalicious.

 

Other bands... TOOL, STP, Sex Pistols, Black Flag, Pennywise, and Against Me (except Crime as forgiven by)

I can still rock some Reinventing Axl Rose on the AM! front. But I cosign on Pennywise. I remember seeing them live and thinking it was a major life event. And then a week later, I couldn't tell you one song they played. Except "Bro Hymn". They had to play that.

Co-sign on In My Time of Dying. Physical Graffitti gets overlooked, but there's some gems on there (Wanton Song is better than Immigrant Song, IMO).
