"Eminem"
Usually, artists who suck are considered guilty pleasures. How is listening to one of the most gifted emcees of all time possibly a guilty pleasure? I could understand if you said Rick Ross or Master P or someone like that, but Eminem? Please.

Dude, have you ever heard of restraint??? It's like you got drunk on the first date and puked in her lap. Moderation is much funnier.

no arguments there. I love the first couple of albums a whole lot. Somewhere around 2005 he started to suck though.

I agree, the cheese can be a little thick at times, but Journey rules! Props to anyone other than me who played their stand up arcade game from the "Frontiers" album back in the day. Castle Park in Hawaii if you want to know how B.A. it was.

One word: Benzodiazepine. Say "no" to drugs, children, or you'll end up like Encore era Eminem, and no-one wants that

I'm assuming you mean his second and third albums, SSLP and MMLP.

Yes those and even The Eminem Show was good at certain moments.

There isn't anything wrong with most of them anyway.

I'll admit to chillin with some Eminem. Didn't you want to be a "Criminal" after you heard the song??? The Marshall album was his best. I used to love some "Black Sunday" by Cypress or some "2001" from Dre back in my abusing days. AHHHHHHHH the memories--or lack there of.

I have a lot of bands I listen to but can never find anyone else who does for some of these. Sometimes my family and friends look at me funny.
Budgie- early stuff sounds great like Breadfan
Angel Witch- finally released a new album this year
Stratovarius- introduced me to symphonic metal
Rhapsody of Fire- sounds amazing
Doro/Warlock- interesting to listen to

Bon Jovi was the band that got me into rock (and later metal) in the first place. I still love their first three albums.

Rhapsody and Stratovarius released some mediocre albums later in their careers, but there's really nothing on that list to be ashamed of. Angel Witch rules.

@Justin Gaines, I still love the first three Bon Jovi albums, too. I actually think 'New Jersey' is one of the great albums of that genre....not a bad song on it IMO.

Despite having all things heavy metal flowing through my veins, I do have a fondness for a rather obscure instrumental/psychedelic/space rock band from, England (Somerset), called Ozric Tentacles. A very different style of music on offer here, but after a hard day at the office they are a perfect accompaniment with the lights dimmed, feet up and a glass of your favourite vintage red to soak up the atmosphere!

I admit it, I like Creed's first 2. I even seen them in concert............twice.
I also own Linkin Park's first disc..................what the hell was I thinking, that blows eternally.

Im with you on that I do like the giutar work in Journey songs as well.I do appreciate the guitar work in some Whitesnake songs.Dio guitarist Vivian Cambell was great live in Whitesnake when I saw them.

I think that many posting here do not properly get the concept of guilty pleasure. I'm seeing The Cure, Budgie, & Ozric Tentacles mentioned, none of which even remotely qualify as a guilty pleasure.

I could not get enough of Human Clay when it came out. It was some kind of weird moment in life that I liked something like that. I'll just blame it on the drugs I was doing then.

Now THAT is a guilty pleasure, although I only see the guilt and cannot for the life of me see the pleasure in having your ears raped by Creed, haha.

I thought the same thing when I saw someone listed Pearl Jam. I can see not liking their music or their politics, but they're good musicians who have maintained their integrity, write solid music and haven't written a pop or radio-friendly record just to make money. Their lyrics have substance and don't get sappy, overly cheesy or cliche. While they have had some huge hits that got a lot of airplay, I don't hear any songs that sound like they were written with the specific intention of having a big radio hit, and all those hits were great songs anyway.
