Seconded on The Grateful Dead, Phish, and other "jam bands," and add to that any number of noodly, boring jazz fusion artists.

Another thing I really dislike is the extreme overuse of the Autotune plugin. That's not only a deplorably lazy and hackneyed studio technique that obviates the need for singing talent, but its overall sound is obnoxious as hell.

Thirded, but it was through this music that I found old proper folk delta blues, so I will always be grateful for that.

I went through a jam band phase but don't really listen any more. I don't hate them, but its not in my regular rotation.

Monotone and autotune rappers? Why are there so many when it sounds so bad?

This would describe me too.  I went to a Phish show a couple of years ago "for old times sake".  Not into it as much any more.

Anything country. There are some pretty talented country artists out there but I can't stomach it.

The guy I ride to work with listens to a lot of that nasally, whiney "I'm too drunk and my girl left me" shit and it has me wincing. I put my earbuds in.

One more for the Beatles, even Ringo was a good musician and they were clearly influential but there are about 4 songs I like.

So that's what's meant by the fab four. Which four songs might they be?

For me,

Old Brown Shoe
Savoy Truffle
And Your Bird Can Sing
Sexy Sadie

Not necessarily the lyrics, but the music.

I like a lot of the Beatles' catalogue (especially after they started getting freaky) but there are a couple of songs that are definitely dodgy by today's standards. I'm thinking of Run For Your Life and We Can Work It Out. Look up the lyrics for those.

Don't know about English language hip hop, but I like the sounds of this Polish stuff

I neglected to mention, when thinking of the Beatles songs you like, your enjoyment may be enhanced by consulting Alan W. Pollock's analysis. There's often a lot going on underneath the hood.

To be fair to myself, I almost listed in place of Sexy Sadie another favorite,

Hey Bulldog
http://www.icce.rug.nl/~soundscapes/DATABASES/AWP/hb.shtml

You can look up your favorite Beatles songs at that site, they're all covered. Are you familiar with Alan W. Pollock? Some people say he's God because of an inordinate fondness for Beatles.

Yeah, I have checked out Pollack's site for years. Great stuff.
The Beatles--as far as the Rock musicians--especially compared to their British Invasion peers--were far more fluent in harmonies and song structures. But combined with their lack of formal schooling allowed themselves to travel down some pretty interesting musical ideas.
Many people will talk about their technological/recording innovations, but the innovation is a little more baked in than that. Probably why they are one of the very, very few rock groups that had their material used so often by jazz musicians.
