This is a wonderful example.

That is to say,

THIS IS A WONDERFUL EXAMPLE
OF HOW BADLY
MAINSTREAM "ROCK" MUSIC
SUCKS GIGANTIC
DONKEY COCK


Earlier this week, in one of the classrooms in which I teach, a kid in another class had publicly professed their love, in three-inch chalk letters on the side blackboard, for some band called "Tokio Hotel."

Today, whilst perusing the latest Rolling Stone and the music charts contained therein, a song by that band, called "Ready, Set, Go!" appeared at #1 of the MTV Top Five Videos chart.

Because MuchMusic plays music that blows (when they put their 23-hour-a-day O.C. marathon on hold), and MTV was the inspiration for MuchMusic, it logically follows that videos played on MTV are terrible as well, and thus, a video which is the current favourite of MTV must be firmly entrenched at the summit of Suck Mountain.

Listen for yourself.

This song is the Perfect Storm of what's wrong with what passes for "rock" music these days. Whiny vocals, guy-liner, auto-tuned harmonies, and barely a shred of competence on their instruments. But hey, they wear black clothing! They're full of suburban angst! OMG OMG COOL HAIR OMG WTF BBQ

In conclusion, I will be listening to my newly-acquired Replacements album, Let It Be. Try this little experiment: play a clip of that song by Tokio Hotel, and then play a clip from "Favorite Thing" by the Replacements, for contrast's sake. If you do, you'll never listen to 102.1 "The Edge" again in your life.

Yeah guy. Not only is that song really boring but it sounds EXACTLY like every other band out there these days. Thumbs down.

I don't even have to look at the title in my feed reader anymore. If it is giant and red and has cock somewhere in the first paragraph, it is Jason.
