>>61890974 I don't care if it's hip or not, I've never liked the Doors and think they're one of the most pussy overrated rock bands ever. I usually keep this opinion to myself though because I know so many Doors fans
>>61891052 nah OP is right, it's definitely become more hip to hate the Doors (not on /mu/, just in general) i'm not sure why....i would think at the very least that their debut is pretty unfuckwithable
i think it probably has to do with the movies that were made about them, definitely with how seriously Jim Morrison took himself, and maybe they were critically overrated for a while and you're still seeing backlash from that

Of all creative bands in the history of rock music, the Doors may have been the most creative. Their first album contains only masterpieces and remains virtually unmatched. Jim Morrison may well be the single most important rock frontman. He is the one who defined the rock vocalist as an artist, not just a singer. Ray Manzaker's style at the keyboards was at the vanguard of the fusion of classical, jazz, soul and rock music. The virulence of some of their riffs bridged the blues-rock era and the hard-rock era. Whether it was him, Krieger or Manzarek or all of them, their songs have a unique quality that has never been repeated. They are metaphysical while being psychological and while being physical (eroticand violent). They are the closest thing rock music has produced to William Shakespeare.
>>61891368 not a huge fan of the vocal work from morrison he sounds a bit like erik burdon mixed with Mick Jagger. Also i always kinda found the instrumentation a bit lame really. Keyboard work from manzaker is solid tho. Plusseeing so many faggots wearing doors shirts and knowing like 2 songs sorta left me with a sour taste with the band after like 5 years. in NA at least
They've been one of my favorite bands since I was a kid but they're still definitely not the best. I can see why a lot of people don't like them, especially with how overrated and glorified they became
