" Oh, and here's a bright idea for Avril to prove how punk she is. Let's have her RAP in a song. Because, ya know, most punk bands always include a rap bit or two in their songs. Here's an excerpt from "Nobody's Fool," also known as Avril's audition for Cash Money Millionaires."

LMAO at the last sentence from the website posted above

How do they do that?! gah

I really wouldn't care so much if she wasn't such a skank.

They use a computer program (Pro Tools is the most popular professional audio editing program - lots of bands/musicians use it to record/engineer their albums now). Anyway, one of the functions it can do is take the recorded voice and can actually take notes that are off pitch and shift them back on pitch. Almost analogous to airbrushing out flaws in photos - they can mask flaws in a person's vocal performance. In some cases they use it to artificially let singers hit notes that they actually can't, in some cases they use it just to make a singer sound cleaner or more accurate than (s)he actually is. Which is fine, I guess, if you never do live performances, but if you DO and you use a lot of pitch correction on your albums, people are going to wonder what's up at your live gigs.

Anyway, I kind of like hearing some weaknesses or flaws in singers - like if you listen to Chris Martin's singing, his voice does some pretty weird stuff sometimes, but it's his natural voice and it works.

I could get angry and rant here about how the mainstream is ruining punk rock for the punks. Oh yeah. Avril, she's so punk. I hear she kicks it in the East Bay all the time. She's opening for Lars Fredrickson and the Bastrads this tour. Cuz you know soooo much punk gets played on the radio, and mtv, and store PA systems.
I say I could get angry, but all my angry is starting to just fade to a constant blanket of disgust. The tee shirt rebellion is trying to claim our culture, because all you have to do is buy the clothes and you are punk.
it's like ok #1 no punk has the money to spend on all that crap from Hot Topic. #2 if they did they would spend it on albums and scotch. No doubt.
I already wasted most of my angry of Good Charlotte, Sum 41, Linkin Park, etc etc etc anyway.
Oh well the kids will get bored of it soon anyway.
Punk's NOT dead.

It's just hiding from the pop industry... and kinda drunk and surley.

Its all too much about the labels and categories one must fall into. It seems these days the title you give yourself or someone appoints you is just as important as what you do in your waking hours.
How damn sad for all involved. Punk she is not, but who cares about what genre she falls into anywhere near as much as her? Its never defined someone and made them who they are, these titles and such.
