It does.  I bet a lot of the posters who don't like The Doors probably think Alice in chains is a good band.

Personal preferences and all, but not liking the doors is like taking an IQ test.  When you answer certain questions correctly you jump ahead one or two questions. Answer it wrong and it's what's 2 + 2 or whats your favorite color type questions from there on out.

Is this supposed to offend somebody? Like I need to reevaluate my choices in music because I pick Alice in Chains over the Doors?

I haven't read a single reply to this thread, so take that into account.

I view the Doors as a band that is greater than the sum of their individual parts.  I think people often get too hung up on how proficient musicians are and forget to listen to them as a whole, as a feeling.  I think the Doors are a good band when viewed that way.  Not great, but good...and certainly on the forefront of what was too come.  I mean, listen to The End and there isn't many of their peers producing music like that.  Not many would until 10 years later.  Yeah, the guitar work was pretty week, and yeah the vocals and lyrics could have been better or less self absorbed, but taken as a whole, they were unique and important in the history of rock music.
