Re: 20 worst bands ever

I don't know how old Mr Pell is but he seems to have a warped view of history

18. Courtney Love
We get it -- she hasn't aged well. Still, back in the '90s she was setting trends with baby doll dresses and plastic bow barrettes in her hair. There's something about her raw, natural looks that appeal to a certain kind of man: The type of man who prefers a little sag in the breast to the plasticine perfection of silicone. The type of man who finds acne to be a little sexy and stretch marks to be battle scars. Not to mention the fact that there's always something more than a little sexy about a woman who's totally crazy. Oh, and she was a stripper. -Nicholas Pell

Setting trends with baby doll dresses? Only a few years after everyone else. And doesn't she have breast implants?

And this

7. Madonna
When it comes to sex, Madonna literally wrote the book. Flip through 1992 S&M coffee table tome Sex to remember just how provocative the Queen of Pop can be.

Again, those too young may think that Sex was provocative but I seem to remember it being a bit of a yawn in the way that the onion portrayed Marilyn Manson http://www.theonion.com/articles/marilyn-manson-now-going-doortodoor-trying-to-shoc,459/

As for the men; Rollins? He exudes celibacy

Re: 20 worst bands ever

Bon Iver - hmmm, according to music critic Simon Reynolds, this whole "neo-soft-rock" music like Bon Iver is quite a trend in current indie music. And this comes from the person who has written a book about "Retromania". How people just rehash the past music styles nowadays and no movement forward, nothing radical appears to happen anymore. Now Reynolds does appear to be a bit too elitist himself, but damned if this hipster retromania thing does appear a bit too much of a "style over substance" problem. I like some kind of indie-folk type of things, but not when it becomes trendy and too palatable for mass tastes. I'm more into music with quirks and weirdness. I like the saying: 10 per cent of the musicians are really creative whereas 90 per cent are only copying.

I totally agree with the "hipster" bands list. Dead on, actually. Many of these bands seem to have members who like to whine and moan like the world is so dead interested in their vapid, "literate" lyrics, while they walk around wearing Beatles boots, top-hats and dank old thrift-store velvet jackets or whatever while playing accordions and steam powered organs. Being a grouchy old man I can really get behind the criticism on the list. Where was Sufjan Stevens on that list? He seems to fit the bill, but I guess he's not popular these days? Joanne Newsom?

The "regular" worst-of list is strange and jumbled, but there are worthy participants, for sure. I mean, Hootie and Dave Matthews are typical (no brainers), but putting Animal Collective next to The Eagles is weird, but fuck it, I don't care for either. Do that many people listen to LCD Soundsystem? I would have expected them/him to be on the "hipster" list, no?

And yes, Tommy Boy is a classic!! Chris Farley was amazing.


could not agree more :) i was tricked into buying a sufjan album many years ago...by a cute hipster girl (was it illinois?) i thought it was god awful on first listen. never put it on again.

and tommy boy is a classic, of course.

feel fairly similarly. i've actually only heard a couple bon iver songs, and they really didn't move me either positively or negatively. but the overall point resonates for me. i've been saying for a while that modern music is mostly stale and swimming in place. i'm stuggling to find any new music that has pushed the envelope in the 2000's. the styles and approaches have remained fairly stagnant since 2000ish. i haven't kept up on new releases as i have in the past because the more and more i dig for something fresh, i keep ending up where i began.
