I wanna move. I swear, we live in a cultural wasteland here in the US.

I loved this part: "Look for Reuters to follow-up their news story with another article, tomorrow: 'Shitty Music A Hit In The United States - Officially.'"

Oh, what a curse we've brought upon our nation!

I miss Britpop already....

When's the wake/funeral?

I love American pop-culture - it is much like the "culture" they do when I had strep-throat when I was young - or something you find in yogurt.

Come crawling back, eh? Well that shit is gonna end when we come back this summer. Go buy our album, ask for our songs on the radio, and see us live. Yeah, thats fookin' right. Tweet? What the fook is that shite? Damn there's some serious problems with your folks' radio.

you as the music buying public are the ones to make that true. not what reuters and billboard claim from sales charts.
you want to hear good music on the radio and in the charts, demand it!

that article is bullshit and sad.
they say it to be true, demand it not be.
