There are exceptions, obviously. But they are far from popular.

I guess I miss the days when the ambitious types were to some extent also popular. Where's today's Midnight Oil? I'm not saying they were the greatest thing ever, but they did have their moments. And sold a lot of records. So where's today's?

What's the point of even looking for "today's [past thing]"? Why can't we just have today's thing of its own? I'd rather that.

In 2042, we'll all be looking for the new Quiet Minority.

The old one will have alienated themselves from the US after their massive hit cover of Matchbox Twenty's 3 AM through their socialist politics and general old bastardness.

Yeah, your last concert in the US will involve you standing on the stage of Madison Square Garden flipping off the crowd in various ways. The encore closes with a middle finger semaphore version of 3 AM.

Cloud Control's 'There's Nothing In The Water We Can't Fight' is the best Australian song of the last two years. The live version of it is simply stunning.

Oddly enough, I don't really care about them otherwise. Some nice songs, some ok songs, whatever. But that one, yeah.

It's a good song, but I barrack for My Fear #2 when it comes to their catalogue.
