If anything, I just wanted to make an objective point. Again, I don't even like a lot of the bands I listed. Certainly not my favorite bands.

I just think it's too easy to dismiss the impact certain bands have had. I'm not talking about anyone directly, but this conversation pops up a lot in life. Particularly in bars when people are drunk. There just seems to be a kind of snobby dismissal of music that has become popular, so popular that it defines a decade or even an era. But I find it strange that particularly in music critics there is a complete change of opinion when it comes to the quality of a band or an album years later.

I think it's almost become "cool" to hate Nirvana. And yet, I daresay everyone still has there copy of Nevermind or Unplugged and when they listen to it, remember why that time of music began in the first place. I think there is something to be said for longevity. Nirvana still gets radio play.

A lot of bands that were popular for such a short time and seemed to be riding the wave, instead of creating it, disappear entirely.

It's like hating Michael Jackson as well. We all know, at one point in time, the man was a genius. Prince as well. Even Madonna.

And so, because they are popular and so ingrained in the culture, people naturally want to rebel and dismiss it.

I dunno. I get into arguments like this all the time. I'm not taking it personal at all, and I hope none of you are either. Again, I'm coming from a more objective point. Personal taste of an individual is what it is.

Pretentious rant over. :)


I hated Nirvana when everyone thought they were the greatest shit ever. They made simple music with unintelligible lyrics and everyone thought it was the most amazing thing ever. When Kurt Cobain died and all those stupid neo-hippie alternative kids were doing ridiculous shit "I'm gonna leave the last drag on my cigarette for KURT, maaaan," I wanted to puke. It's only recently, years later, that I can stomach Nirvana now that people have stopped acting like they're god's gift to music. Nirvana were a fad, and the grunge fad didn't even last long, as fads go.

As for Prince, Prince has always been awesome. Anyone who doesn't think so has no idea what they're talking about.

I find white boys with alpha-male complexes hate Prince and call him names like "pervert" "fag" "sissy" amongst other things.

I bet he would school them in basketball.

Which is ironic because he's probably had more ass than the entire city of Minneapolis.

I don't get the hate for him either. He's a great musician who had a down period, but still had a great career and his newer stuff is pretty good as well.

Like I said, people who don't like Prince just have no clue what they're talking about. Not only did he bang tons of hot chicks, which makes it pretty ridiculous to call him a sissy (and even if he was banging dudes, that doesn't stop you from being a rock god either), but he's an incredible composer and plays a gazillion instruments.

Funny you should mention that, I'm fighting with my computer at the moment, cause iTunes doesn't wanna open. How did I notice this? I tried to open it so I could DL "When Doves Cry". :D

Taste is subjective, I know this. However, anyone who hates Prince is just wrong.

there's only one other rock star besides Prince that I used to have fantasies about when I was young... Jim Morrison. Both sexy and both extremely talented.

Edit: Of course one was dead, so I'm not sure what that says...

I'm not certain, but I THINK it is.... EWW!! CREEPY!!

Of course, I could be wrong. Besides, maybe you were thinking of JOHN Morrison. :)

nice face! Too much muscle though. Wouldn't turn it down, mind you, but it wouldn't be my first choice either.

Do you have a picture from behind? :P

Edit: I do love the hair, though!

I don't, but do a google search for him! I will give him this... he's a heck of a talented wrestler.
