"....pretentious wankers..." :lol

d00d has a point.  there'll always be brain cell melting music but, nowadays there's more of it than ever.  I think the reason is artists have several mediums to have their music heard on (youtube/facebook/twitter, etc) that the music is being produced quickly to get it to the masses. 

rarely and I mean rarely do I listen to the actual music on the radio other than sports (hello Pandora/SiriusXM) but, when I do; my brain cells get all mawlty.  typically i'll turn to the hip-hop station just to see whats on and I really cannot tell the artist's apart from each other.  don't get me wrong what these guys/girls do I'm not mad; more power to them because that's what the masses want and they are getting paid.  of course the r&b station is different (mainly because they'll mix in some oldies) but, even w/the newer artist's I can listen and separate one from another.

I've been saying that same stuff for years.

I've had the displeasure of having to hear a lot of pop radio at work and it is terrible, terrible stuff...most of it.

I guess though, my favorite band and pretty much all I listen to mostly still is Motley Crue. So what do I know?

Most all their songs were written by the same guy too, the bass player.
