I just… have no interest in them? I literally cannot name one song of theirs.
I got into electronic music because my dad had a bunch of 8-tracks of Isao Tomita, Wendy Carlos, Synergy, Pink Floyd, the Close Encounters of the Third Kind soundtrack, etc. Once I was old enough to have any disposable income, it went to cassettes of Tomita, Jean-Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream, and Kraftwerk… and then I stumbled into Skinny Puppy and everything changed
I’ve seen people claim they’re “the Beatles for Generation X” and, well, no, they were too late to that party. That dubious title probably goes to Nirvana. (Or perhaps NIN should get it, given the parallels between Sergeant Pepper’s huge emphasis on studio production, and Pretty Hate Machine being probably the first 100% home studio made hit record? Anyway.)
I’ve also seen people claim that one specific Radiohead appearance (on Saturday Night Live, I think?) was somehow singlehandedly responsible for the popularity of Eurorack, and again, that just strikes me as extreme hyperbole.
Anyway, I don’t want to turn this into “your favorite band sucks” at all – it’s more like they just don’t intersect my world. I mean, to me, The Cure’s Disintegration may have been the last good pop album ever made
