Singers who seem to use their hands too much whilst singing as if it helps them reach a note. It's not needed. Also singers who split single single syllable words a la Katie Perry (although I can forgive her).

I'm fairly broad in my musical tastes, but 'happy clappy' modern Christian songs, usurping a long tradition of truly beautiful music, now that boils my pee.

I'm not religious at all but I do like a good traditional hymn sing song. I'm with you they now get great old hymn songs and put then to new funky beats played by a jimmy savile type at the front of the church on a keyboard or guitar

people who put stickers on their guitars

bourgeois glottal stop bands who sing trite songs-the kooks for instance as Hornetto says

heavy metal, especially spandex poodle bands, and that sub genre that has singers singing in a kind of growling grunting voice that sounds like the giant inan amateur production of jack in the beanstalk

bands from malawi or senegal who either play twigs whilst dressed in bedsheets, or have this tinny guitar sound and jump up and down all the time

'songs' that reference bitches, hos, bustin caps, or killing cops.

marijuana drenched roots reggae, in fact reggae

rap: what's up can't they think of a tune?

60s, 70s, 80s and no doubt before long 90s revival tours. I don't mind seeing old acts, because I'm old and because I like Cliff Bennet, but these packages featuring bands and artists that were ###### at thre time, and who might not even have any original members are awful, luckily they tend to have these events at Butlins, so you can kill two birds with one stone by not going.

those hearing aid type things

Sinead O'Connor

certain instruments used in rock music: no banjos, trombones, clarinets and I repear no synths please.

girfriends of band members who dance in a desultory way at thge side of the stage

guitars that manufacturers deliberately 'ditress' to look like that of a famous guitarist. For instance fender do a Rory Gallagher stratocaster. What sort of a annoying person would want one of those?

most music after about 1971.

R'n'B music that has no blues in it.

Drum machines used only for "dum-dum-tish, dum-dum-tish, dum-dum-tish".

Metaphorically speaking, of course. The reality is that playing toilet venues in front of 50 people, hassling promotors for your money and sleeping in a transit-van with five other people is... actually... pretty good fun too.

Not quite that level of hedonism ;) but a decent 10 year run involving three singles, an album, a Radio One session and some very decent support slots. And my picture in Melody Maker - on the same page as Mick Hucknall.
