An intentionally caustic and baiting post.
It’s one thing to have preferences, it’s another to be a bitter knob about it.

It's like Neil Young reined in at your great granmas 105th birthday or something, so he sounds like a neutered 12 year old boy scout.
I know you Yanks get really kinda big and nostalgic about such bands (but not about others, which you probably should, like the Bee Gees, New York Dolls, Ramones, and so on).
Like Santana, the Grateful Dead do absolutely zero for me. They're just like a bunch of teenagers in a shed singing some inane hippy songs.
