It's been a while since I've complained about music, so today's list is bands that never, ever should have made it big. The American public is ignorant, and they tolerate people with shitty sounds or inability to actually play their instruments. Here's the list of those who piss me off the most:
I actually saw them live with a buddy of mine. Well, sort of. He got free tickets to the show because his friend worked on the Fusion tour. We made fun of ever band that took the stage until our ears started bleeding. At one point my buddy says to me, "You know what the funny thing is? This is a SOLD OUT show. There are people at home right now sulking and literally crying because they didn't get tickets. We just came to hang out with my buddy and make fun of these awful bands."
Then Evanescence came on and we went out to their bus and made fun of them where we didn't have to hear them for the rest of the show. That, my friends, is music snobbery at its finest.
- Hootie and the Blowfish
Burger King should have been the end of his career, not an continuation.
Another concert story. I went to one of their shows because of a girl I liked at the time. When it became apparent she wasnt interested, I left. Now that's money well spent.
Anyone who listened to any song in its entirity by this band should be ashamed of themselves.
- Linkin Park
When I was writing this, I couldn't remember the name of this band, as my mind tends to block out bad memories. Know how I found it? I googled "Worst Band Ever." I'm not kidding.
There's one thing I admire about these guys, and that is that they are BALLSY. They have at least three songs where they didn't bother to change the chords, just the words. All of them made the top 40. America, you're a fucking sheep and you should be ashamed.
My buddy, HotDamn Doyle, once said: "The World According to Garp made me want to become a famous writer. After reading Penn Faulkner winner Snow Falling on Cedars, I knew I could." Any of you out there who want to be famous musicians, don't give up. This is proof that mediocrity sells.
