Why would you be ashamed of the greatness that was Men Without Hats?

Personally, I really can't think of anything I have that I'm ashamed to own, display, or admit I liked. There's a lot of stuff I no longer listen to because my musical tastes have changed, but that doesn't mean I'm embarrassed by them. Of course, I should note that that Richard Marx (The W at Amazon) album an ex of mine gave me doesn't exactly get pride of place in the vinyl collection.

Hell I still enjoy groups that fall in this category: The Go-Go's, Herman Brood and His Wild Romance, Mason Williams, Melanie (We all thought she was hot in high school), and The Zombies.

Rick Springfield.

I never knew why that would be shameful until a couple of years ago when I agreed to accompany She Who Used To Reside In My Avatar and her sister to a show.

Thirty and Forty-something year-old women screaming and bawling like twelve-year-olds.

It was one of the most disturbing things I have ever seen.

Bell Biv DeVoe. They're unlistenable now unless you're drunk. Really drunk. Like Otis of Mayberry drunk. Way past Foster Brooks drunk. Maybe even Jack Elam in Cannonball Run drunk.

Vanilla Ice AND New Kids On The Block.

I still wince when I hear "Hanging Tough" (indy wrestler Beef Wellington used to come out to that song for CZW shows).

The shame I feel for having purchased the first album by Warrant is only exceeding by that for purchasing their second album.

I purchased their first 3 cd's.

Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich - Other than the title song, I was very disappointed with the cd and didn't like it at all. I ended up giving it away to a friend of mine after I dubbed the title song onto a Memorex cassette tape.

Warrant's Cherry Pie and Dog Eat Dog cd's I both liked and still have them in my collection to this day.

I have a thing for those late night infomercial ads where they try to sell you really crappy compilations like AM GOLD or FREEDOM ROCK.

In MY case however, I need to switch out the phrase '...try to sell you...' to the more correct phrase of '...force me to dial the phone and order...', because I DO ORDER THEM.

"FREEDOM ROCK baby... turn it UP!"

Indeed I do...

The Time Life Decades series isn't really all that bad either.

There is also a series called GOLDEN THROATS where you can hear such 'classics' as Phillis Diller performing (The Rolling Stones')'Satisfaction', Bing Crosby performing (The Beatles')'Hey Jude', and Andy Griffith performing (The Animals') 'House Of The Rising Sun'. You might notice my use of the word 'performing' instead of 'singing' here; this is due to the fact that NONE of these people are actually 'singing' the songs. These are more like beatnik performance art pieces rater then actual songs. REALLY bad and when people see these mixed in my other CDs, they want to know what they are and then I tell them and then I get looks of disgust or dismay.

I suppose I should add Pat Boone's NO MORE MR. NICE GUY where he does all heavy metal covers. His version of 'Paradise City' was quite shitty and well worth the $17.99 I remember paying for it. I've only listened to this CD three times on my own and have played it for other people or in a club less then ten times. This might be the only real 'embarrassment' in my collection.

Behold the "Wise" Words of Renegade Raine, the Bishounen Hunter:


Geez, what I listen to now is WAY different than what I listened to back in the day. I think I'm embarrased by EVERYTHING I used to listen to...

MC Hammer, Madonna (although I still have a little soft spot for the Ray of Light CD), Chumbawamba, Cher, Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, probably a few others.

Hmmmmm... There is nothing I am terribly embarassed of, there are somethings people I have that my friends find odd, and things I really don't like anymore. But that's standard, here's a list of things that I don't like so much anymore, or my friends demand explanations of.

Switchblade Symphony, Dead Can Dance, Die Krupps, Mephisto Walz, ICP, Sunna, Two, The Hunger, Tegan and Sara, I Mother Earth, Rooney, Caroline's Spine.

I think that covers most of it... still I like at least one or two songs on each CD however.

I am not at all embarrassed to admit my favorite music as a youngster was the King himself, Elvis. I still love his music.

I am only slightly embarrassed that I was a huge Alan Sherman fan.

I am thoroughly embarrassed that I lined up at 7 AM before the store opened at 9, to buy the newest Village People album.

I just want to say that I PROUDLY still like just about every band/artist from anyone's post on page one... except I must admit to being embarrased to own Celine Dion's first couple English cds. Yes, I used the present tense there. I can't even bring myself to turn them into a second hand cd shop down the street for fear of being laughed at by the 16 year old punk behind the counter, so they just gather dust. Sure, she wasn't as obnoxious then as she is now, but still, I have no excuse.

You guys bashing Journey, Hammer, the Ice Man, you don't know what embarrasing is. Those guys can still bring it and still light up a room if played at a social. Celine is French for "Shame".

Wow, where do I start? I have almost every bad heavy metal album from the late 80's, early 90's. I guess I have to say Winger. I bought the album after I heard some songs on the radio. I thought the music was good, but come on, Kip. The videos, the poodle do, the too white teeth. Way, way too over the top for me.

"Understand I'm the Candyman

And I melt in your mouth, not in your hands

Hard as rock, yes I'm no sucka

The boots I knock make me one bad mutha"


Wow that song made me laugh.

Also, Electric Hellfire Club, when I was more into the darker side of things.
