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.
