Well, here goes:

Songs I don't like but most do:
- the original album versions of Ballad of a Thin Man and It's All Over Now, Baby Blue
- Mr. Tambourine Man
- Positively 4th Street
- Peggy Day (probably not the most loved song off of NS, but the ending to Peggy Day is not appealing to me. Oy.)
- Dark Eyes. I really like the lyrics but over time I realized that it's a song that I have to be in a specific mood to listen to. Still good though

There are several "important" Bob Dylan songs I absolutely detest--the biggest offenders are:

Sad-Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands
Chimes Of Freedom
Idiot Wind

I also think "Tempest" (with the exception of "Duquesne Whistle," which a legitimately great song) is the worst album ever recorded by a major artist--seriously. It is basically a collection of plodding, unmelodic blues shuffles which lyrics that sound like they were picked out of a hat.

Generally speaking, if the song goes over five minutes and uses five or fewer chords I lose interest quickly, but what do I know, as I like "Knocked Out Loaded." I didn't know I was supposed to hate until I got on the 'net.

Having said that, I LOVE "Brownsville Girl" and "Highlands."

Location: in harmony with the cosmic sea
Poitively 4th Street
It's All Over Now Baby Blue
Rainy Day Women #12&35
Forever Young
Red River Shore
Foot of Pride

I think those are the ones I just don't get. I've not included songs I don't really like, but do appreciate in some respects (Mr. Tambourine Man, Every Grain of Sand, Blowing in the Wind, Lay Lady Lay ...)

As for albums:
Modern Times

also Another Side and Tempest, but they are probably not considered abolute classics.
