    I was driving home tonight, and I heard that new song by nickelhead or whatever they're called ("never made it as a blahblah, couldn't cut it as a poor man stealin"), and I'm crankin it as high as my system would without sounding really cruddy.
    I hit a preset when the songs over to go back to my usual local impersonation-of-a-country station, and I must've jabbed the wrong button without looking.

    I swear I thought it was a bit making fun of retarded club music. I'm hearing this bouncy bass-y crap, and then a little girl's voice comes on singing "lalalala la la lalala la la...", so I start laughing hysterically, thinking "man, this is so funny! It sounds so dumb, but just like something I'd expect blasting from the window of a civic around here". The the la stops and some form of lyrics occur in the girls voice. I look at my radio and realize I must've somehow hit seek and bounced to the "other" music station! That crap was a real friggin song!!! Someone is actually getting paid to do that, and someone somewhere is sitting there saying, "wow, this is a phat beat" or however people talk these days.

    I couldn't believe it! It sounded like a bona fide spoof song, but it was real! Dang. I'm stickin' with my George, Alan, Waylon, and Johnny... I keep getting a bad taste in my mouth from the radio... Although there is a Shakira song I want to hate, but really like...

    <font color=purple> 90% of the music today sucks !! There are too many no talent hacks with record labels and far too many musicians with REAL talent that can't get a break ! Music sucks that way !

    I dunno on the name, nickelback is pretty god, listen to the rest of the cd before you bash them.

    As for the " la la lalalala" song on the other station, i have heard it too, and i agree with you. WTF?

    Haha... man that is lame. I haven't heard their album, but everything on the rock stations here suck. Either trendy new piss music, old played 200,000 times stuff from 70-90's, or just plain crap. The bebop station is on more and more in my rig just because it is different for my ears. I'll give just about any kind of music a listen... But I agree with Riz... lots of crappy overhyped bands with contracts while some really good bands can't even get a label to notice them.

    the sad thing, is I think I know what song you mean.... DON'T KILL ME JUST YET! its cause I have a younger sister, who likes that crap, and I have a younger brother that keeps on changing the channel to `MTV' which plays some of the most craptacular `music' ever. I don't listen to the radio, ever if I can help it. if I want music in my car, I have a CD player, a lot of CD's, and a CD burner. people pulling up along side me are just as likely to hear Metal by Iron maiden, Morbid Angel, some techno by prodigy or aphex twin, or some classical music, such as Holst, john williams, or Yoko Kanno. (NOT Yoko Onno... ) even wierder, its just as likely to shift from deathmetal to some classical stuff, into some deep bass techno, back into metal. the radio just doesn't work for me. there's as many advertisements as music anymore ( seems every time I try to turn the radio on, I get nothing but adverts) and the music isn;t spectacular. or even ok.

    What really kills me is the younger singers/rappers who are hitting the big times and acting like "gods" because they are rich and famous.

    One person who really stands out like a sore thumb is "Lil Bow Wow". [​IMG]

    That little kid is sooooo anoying and snotty.... I swear if I ever came across him, I would bitch slap him back into his mothers womb!!! [​IMG]

    BTW, these younger generation singers/rappers are no different than the actors and movie stars who have hit fame early on and crashed later. Look at Gary Coleman, Danny Bonaduce, etc. etc. etc. [​IMG]

    Hopefully, "Lil Bow Wow" only lasts a year or so and then hits the skids. [​IMG]

    all they put out any more is 1 hit wonders, and quite technicaly, they don't even qualify as 1 hit wonders... 1 hit wonders will be played on the radio stations for years to come, like all those horrible 80's wonders... these will be forgotten, and burried by the end of the year.

    how many people have ever heard of this band called 311? or green day? both were Uuber popular when I was in high school perhaps 5 years ago, but almost no one knows/cares about them any more. ( I hated them personaly for writing simplistic music, that all sounded the same) even marilyn Manson has lost his appeal with people... what about rappers Heavy D, and Digital underground? Sir Mix A lot who was touted as the most sexist rapper in the universe is pretty much a distant memory anymore ( I oculd be worng... I don't follow the RAP scene anymore)

    &lt;&lt;editied to say I just noticed Grim still listens to Manson.... &gt;&gt;

    oh well,
    stuff I tend to listen to includes:
    Dream Theater
    Crystal Method
    Iron Maiden
    Symphony X
    Nightwish
    Stratovarius
    Rhapsody
    Luca Turili
    Thunder cross
    Old Megadeth
    Manowar
    Primus
    KMFDM
    Mr Bungle
    Aphex twin
    Enya (good stuff to sleep to... works better then NyQuil)
    Holst ( classical )
    Yoko Kanno ( classical )
    etc.
    rather an odd mixture of music, from bands most people have never heard of, but it works for me...
