The Worst Musical Instrument

I'd pretty much say that the accordion is the worst musical instrument ever invented. I cannot stand the sound of an accordion. CAN'T STAND IT!

[Side note: I will admit that I find the accordion physically attractive, but whatever -- that point is neither here nor there].


Accordians! 



But the rise in popularity of one of the single worst bands I have ever heard in my life -- Mumford & Sons -- is making me think that the BANJO is possibly AS BAD AS if not WORSE THAN the FUCKING ACCORDION.


Die folk rock, DIE!!!!


Maybe I shouldn't blame the poor little banjo. I just hate that stupid band and maybe I should leave it at that.


P.S. I could not bring myself to include a video of that stupid band in this post. I just couldn't! If you are not familiar with them, it should be easy enough for you to find out more on your own.

No way!!! you hate Mumford & Sons?? i don't loooove them, but i really like them. i'm definitely a folk-rock fan, though ;) your disdain for the accordion and banjo is impressive! toss the organ in, for me ;)

haha- I actually own an accordion I bought in Russia when I went there in high school- don't know how to play it but whatever. I think it is such a cool instrument.

I love both the accordion and the banjo. But I love ragtime and zydeco so I've always loved them.

Once I learn to play one I'll come to your house and serenade you. :)

Lorena said...

Haha..
i am not a fan of accordions either... it's like a book mutated.

Helen said...

I agree with you on both of these, although I would rather listen to the accordion for 24/7 than hear Mumford and Sons! I hate the singers stupid accent (and I am a brit), the stupid waistcoats, banjo, singing style - what a load of rubbish! x

I have no ill feeling towards either instrument. Oddly, I am now sitting here deeply contemplating what instruments I do loath.

hmmmm?????

Tia said...

Bahahaha! There is so much, straight up, HATE in this post. I love it.

Mandy said...

I used to hate them too (thanks to Urkel) but now they remind me of Amelie and her silly ass shenanigans.

Aaaahh, you have no idea how popular Mumford and Sons are in the UK - especially with the kids. But as I'm old I'm free to say I don't get them either and the accordion is a truly horrible instrument :)

Here I thought we were kindred spirits.

Kara said...

Hahaha, "that stupid band". I sometimes dig 'em but that really made me giggle.

I don't mind accordion or banjo but my most FAVORITE hated instrument is the slide guitar! It has a bad reputation cause of crappy country but when used out of that awful context...so good.

Jo said...

let me take you back to the days of 'dueling banjos'...roy clark. best banjo picker ever. that will make you love the banjo again for sure. :)

tulpen said...

I don't mind the accordian.

And the Banjo?

I would die happy right now if I knew I'd be reincarnated as Scott Avett's banjo.

If you hate the Avett Brothers too then I'm afraid you have no soul.

;)

My first thought when you said accordion was the Lawrence Welk show. Ha. My mom hates that show with a passion. Perhaps the hate all lies within the instruments. lol

Much Love,
Trissta

Kristine said...

Oh! See I was going to mention the Avett Brothers too! Love them. I do have a soft spot for folkie rock. I haven't listened to a lot of Mumford and Sons just because they seem to be popular with the hipsters, but I would probably enjoy them a little. Can we still be pals?

Thank you!! My faux hippie/folk friend loves the Mum and I CAN'T stand them. Banjo music is the seductive soundtrack of incest worldwide.

chloe said...

Lara said...

So glad you hate that band (which shall not be named) too!
The National Folk Festival is in Richmond, VA every Summer and people around here suck their D so hard... it's making me sick.
