    always amazes me when talking tunes with people what the different tastes are and just what people are feeling, so this thread is to name those huge tunes your just never got into

    a few of mine

    Pulp Fiction - never got the hype around this
    Its Jazzy - it sounds like a pulp fiction remix and the intro sounds shit
    Marka - just not my thing
    No Diggity - awful
    Represent (chase and status rmx) - not a patch on the original


    there will be more !!!

    Completely agree! Thought it was average compared to 'Obsession' by Enei

    Few of mine:

    Mr Happy - cringe
    Offline VIP - Just no
    Duppy Man Remix (C&S) - thought the vox were annoying lol
    Slippery Slopes - Def the most overplayed tune of 2005

    let me think lol, jokes thread idea

    From the top of my head:
    Snorkel - never got the hype around this tune, played it once and never again
    Detroit Lies Bleeding (Phobia Remix) - don't like this tune at all
    And basically any pre-More Than Alot stuff by Chase & Status, can't really stand their early trademark sound.

    Phace & Misanthrop - Desert Orgy

    I like it, but the fact they made it virtually unplayable with its intro kinda ruins it for me

    100% agree

    To be honest I cant stand any of his classics either. Racing Green, the lot!

    Hate sweetshop. Cant STAND that tune. Eurgh, it alwaysss gets played at the hospitality/detonate events in sheff. Irritating to the max, theres usually a fair few cunts that jump around to it like they're the big men. aha

    Killers Dont Die (to be honest a lot of that old womp womp jump up does my end in)

    in my opinion - silly thread, its like getting people to talk about football teams they dont like, best thing to do is keep your opinions to yourself and when you hear the tune on a night out just go to the bar.

    (hard to convey what i really mean but hey ho)

    - about 80-90% off the new RAM stuff because they all sound either like Culture Shock or Bassrinser.
    - Billain production might be good but it's way too nerdy/technical
    - Mind Vortex don't get the fuss in general
    - Rockwell Tripwire

    I guess I'm not so much into the techy stuff
