I agree. Though I have no shame in saying I find Mrs Mariqueen Maandig-Reznor attractive, nor Marianne Sveen.
I also happen to like the vocals of Axl Rose but I don't find him physically attractive. Woah that's an odd thoght...

We really should be fans of music itself not performers(ok i can understand watching(probably on mute) sexy video with not so great music but listening to music on replay just because of that sexy video? that is mystery.) but sometimes playing attention to them can give us more content to enjoy. Heh. Ever since VIVA and MTV(before they got infected with mainstream diseases) time most of the songs get to be first heard on radio rather than watched on TV.

Precisely! Like for example:
Avril Lavigne - Hot
Sure she changed but the song was still great as song when it was released!

I have zero desire to do that.

I know there are some women (and likely even some men ...) that find Axl Rose attractive.
But of course you and me don't. There are some songs that the video adds to the music (for example, in my opinion Aha's "Take me on" has a well matching video)

Many times the video is junk though.

Overall, I won't listen to a song just for the video. And if there is a song I like with a bad video, I won't watch the video

I'm a guy, but Axl Rose attractive? I don't think so: http://media.kayfabenews.com/wp-cont...014/05/axl.jpg (sorry for the show business digression ).

Anyway, I'm ok with people singing naked if they wish as long as they have real talent and don't use their nudity to sell us stuff.

Yes, that kind of thing was the reason for my little jibe about Axl -- I mean him no disrespect and am sure he is a lot more likeable and attractive than me.
For me as long as I like the music I like the music even if I hate, don't respect, or condemn the singer (I like some of Charles Manson's work, and Marilyn Manson's).
Regarding my Taylor Swift comments -- I really tend to get very bored of pop music in general so the fact I enjoy listening to some of her stuff is fairly remarkable.

Didn't know Charles Manson had composed music. In regards to Marilyn Manson, I don't like him either, but I like his music nonetheless .

Anyway, going back on-topic:

Velvet Revolver - Mary Mary

Monster Magnet - Space Lord

The Dead Weather - Will There be Enough Water?

You can find Charles Manson on Goole/YouTube. G'n'F'N'R'S covered Look At Your Game Girl yet despite the fact I like Axl Rose's voice I did prefer his version.

Just listened both versions. Not bad. It was a bit odd to listen a serial killer singing though.

Indeed it is. I do prefer the Charles Manson version though and am glad that the proceeds for the album go to the victims of crime.
I apologise for bringing this up but this but Never Say Never To Always is the most frightening song I have ever heard. I suppose I ought to, and do, feel bad for wanting to hear it but I seek out all information and experiences.

Not going to listen to it. Sorry but Charles Manson is a horrible person.
I must say I didn't know there was such a thing as Charles Manson music though.

I respect that completely and do feel like a ghoul listening to it sometimes.
I wouldn't own or listen to any if I didn't know that no money is going to Manson but all the proceedings go to support victims of crime.
I know that does still make me, perhaps, unpleasant to some but I take music as it is.

I try not to judge others by their musical taste (although there are some things that I really can't help but take note)
In this case, it is just something I wouldn't do personally but it doesn't really matter to me that others are okay listening to it (if that makes sense)

Anyway: Pearl Jam Daughter (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbuz3sGNsyo)
A song that is difficult for me to understand but it has been stuck in my head all day.

I'm glad you see it that way and it is just that -- musical taste. I do understand that things aren't necessarily so simple when such abhorrent people are involved.
I never quite "got" Daughter either but I do enjoy it.
I still remember some old crushes when I hear Black -- which I still find one of the most romantic songs I have heard.
