    Are there any bands that you once thought totally sucked, but have since gained an appreciation for their music... even if you wouldn't necessarily spend money to buy it?

    An easy one for me is Prince. At his peak, I thought his music was totally gay. But since I've come to realize he's about as talented a musician as you'll find.

    Tom Jobim.

    The Girl From Ipenema was laughable elevator music but once you get into the original sounds, many of his compositions are so beautiful (Wave, Desafinado, Corcavado) that they can bring me to tears.

    Me too,until I started trying to play guitar, and realized how hard it really is. He is a guitar genius, and he makes it look so effortless like the greats do.

    Band wise, I used to think Metallica sucked, but now I think for a Metal Group they are the best. (imo)

    That's funny, I used to love Metallica and now I think they're immensly overrated.

    Go figure.

    I never thought the Allman brother sucked, but after seeing them last May I new found respect for them. In my opinion, they are a great jam band.

    A couple years ago, I never really saw the buzz about Eric Clapton. While I didn't think he sucked, I thought he was overrated.

    However, listening to his music, he truly is one of the greatest guitarists ever. And has a lot of great songs obviously.

    I used to think that Tiny Tim sucked and he did - up until he died.
