Here are 10 Bands You Won’t Admit To Liking (or at least won’t admit to liking one of their songs) that me and the Under the Rock team came up with.  Everyone always has that one song by that one band that you only ever secretly listen to while driving alone.  You would never ever tell anyone for fear of looking uncool or cheesy.  Example: you only listen to punk rock but love to jive out to some Avril Lavigne sometimes.  Um, yeah.  We won’t tell…

1. Nickelback


Also known as a band that people love to hate, these guys have catchy songs – plain and simple – and our bets are that at least most of you haters have sang along to at least one of their songs!

2. Creed


Nickelback before Nickelback.  Can you take me Higher?

3. Ricky Martin

Ricky Martin

Why are your Latin pop beats so catchy Ricky? Why??

4. Spice Girls

Spice Girls

What confuses me most about the Spice Girls is that it is mostly guys who have secret love affairs with their…um, err…music.

5. Shawn Desman

Shawn Desman

Shawn Desman falls into that crossover category where he obviously has a huge following but people who just should never ever like this type of music will secretly groove to “Electric” when no one is watching.

6. Blacked Eyed Peas

Black Eyed Peas

There are so many obvious reasons that one may not want to admit to liking these guys but we are betting there are secret fans out there.

7. Maroon 5

Maroon 5

Again, these guys have their own following, which I cannot believe because I personally cringe every time I hear Adam Levine’s voice and I have seen him interviewed a few times and he comes across extremely arrogant and like he is a bit of a …..I’ll let you fill it in.  However, I have to personally admit that I have found myself moving to the beat of “Moves Like Jagger”.

8. Hinder


Hinder seems to have a bad wrap for sounding too formulaic, but again, like Nickelback and Creed, their songs are catchy and hence, we are pretty sure there is at least one song that someone out there who opposes the band secretly likes!

9. Avril Lavigne

Avril Lavigne

“What??? You like Avril Lavigne??? Ugh, no!!!!” I have had this conversation.  And then, I heard a catchy song on the radio that I kept finsing myself singing and guess who sang it? Avril.  Yup.  Sigh.

10. J Lo

J Lo Jennifer Lopez

J Lo.  Is a great dancer, fantastic singer and even though her characters are always the same, I don’t mind her acting.  So there.  I admitted it.  I, Under The Rock Girl, who really only likes Industrial, New Wave and some Alternative Rock, does enjoy the sounds of J Lo.
