Mogwai were influenced by Slint for sure, I wouldn't call them a rip though. And yeah a lot of post-rock bands are also influenced a lot by GY!BE, but I think overall Mogwai has influenced post-rock more than GY!BE; maybe because Godspeed have this more uncommon instrumentation, I don't know.

One another boring band: A Silver Mt Zion nowadays. A shame seeing how good their two first albums were ...

Saying that though, I listen to bands like Kayo Dot who noodle around just as much. Preference I guess.

I'd really have to try really hard to think of other bands that I find boring. I find almost anything I listen to has some intrinsic value. I thought that was how most people felt about music. I just find so much to like, love, or at least respect about music.

And that's not so say I don't hate some bands. But just because I hate them doesn't mean I don't think they're valid, and if I hate them I certainly don't find them boring.

Godspeed rule. First 2 White Stripes albums are good.

Most bands are boring, really. Even bands I like. I enjoy Tortoise, for example.. well, some of their stuff.. but they're so fucking boring. I love King Crimson, but some of their shit is boring. And so on and so on.

...Radiohead are just awful. I can't make it through most of their albums because they're so boring. IN RAINBOWS is nearly unlistenable to me.

I haven't mentioned them in a while so I think it's safe for me to say that Markers are one of the most boring bands, if not the most boring, I've ever heard. Their music is so monotonous. For "noise", "freak-out", "psychadelic", "whoa man" stuff, like their early stuff, there's no variations, no changes, and you can fast-forward to any part of any song and it's the same shitty guitar with a competent drummer and a girl going "Ya ya." Just awful. On their newer stuff, where they write 2-chord songs they can barely play, they're probably even more boring. Simply atrocious.

I'm not going to list anything, cause it would go on forever.

Pretty much, anything I don't listen to is something I find boring.

Plain and fucking simple.

Dave matthews band.
Nickelback.
Flogging Molly.
Yo La Tengo. I love them, but unless I'm in the mood to chill out and listen to them, they can be kinda boring.

here's my real contribution to this thread:

<atsonicpark>

Every band is kinda boring, aside from Captain Beefheart.
