Abba- pointless drivel
U2- noise for cash
Elvis- over rated all to hell, the King of rock and roll was Jerry Lee Lewis, despite Elvis dying on the throne, so to speak.
Metallica- not because they were never good, but because they sold out and stopped being any good, and I miss what they were capable of when they
actually gave a God damn about their thrash metal roots.
Every Boy/Girl Band- empty, vacuous, morally defunct, and worth setting on fire just to laugh at the fact that they make a more enjoyable noise when
screaming for their lives.
Bands who were exponents of the genre known as "UK Garage" in the nineties and early noughties- because they helped prop up "Street Culcha Innit
Bruv?". For those not in the know, I meant street culture, and a particular brand of it, which I find the most utterly appalling thing to happen to
popularism since... I don't know, the Nazis? Track suit trousers tucked into socks, caps worn so far back on the head that it makes the wearer look
like he or she is trying to use their heads as a mount for a radio telescope, an inability to communicate in legitimate English language, and an
inability to accept intellectual pursuit as a legitimate form of expression of personality are all markers. So are an obsession with ones street cred,
preparedness to do violence and drugs purely to propagate and maintain that street cred. In short, it was a scum machine.
Oh, and the bloody Beatles- Some people, not smart ones, insist that there would be no heavy metal what so ever, if it had not been for the rock
inspired by the Beatles. I personally spit on that notion. Heavy metal would have happened anyway without those over rated, sappy, pathetic, gormless,
bowl cut sporting halfwits. The fact of the existence of classical music, as well as the existence, BEFORE the Beatles, of Jerry Lee Lewis, and also
the existence of the Blues movement, are sure signs of that. My first beard hair had more personality than any album the Beatles ever produced, and I
have had bouts of the common cold more talented.
