RANT - media categorizing of bands!!!

This drives me mad especially when the media get it WRONG because of their ignorance. For example:

"Crusty festival faves" The Levellers
"80's synth pop band" Depeche Mode
"Gloomy goth rockers" The Sisters of Mercy

I see this in newspapers, on the TV and even in the supposedly "informed" music press. I know not everyone can relate to the bands I've mentioned but I need to rant to some people who will understand just how annoying the media can be.

Ta.

Like how Alice in Chains and Soundgarden were considered metal bands in the early days until Nirvana broke, and some numbnut coined the term "grunge rock" and suddenly AIC and Soundgarden were grunge, cause they were from Seattle.
Makes perfect sense.
