Your Input: A Song You Hate from a Band You Love
Is it possible to love every song your favorite artist or band puts out?
But can you also hate a song by a band or artist you adore?
Also very possible. Maybe even probable.
Perhaps “hate” is too strong a word… but can you name a song you just don’t dig from a band or artist you otherwise LOVE????
We want – nay, need – to hear from you! Hit that comments section! Enjoy!
