Not Like In My Day

What is with this Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus craze? I mean, really people...

When pop was huge in "my day" --the big pop explosion of the late 90s--all the bands were actually talented. Cheesy, yes. But they had the voices of angels. Obviously there were a few exceptions, namely Britney Spears; however, at least Britney can still out perform the Jonas Brothers, who thrash about on stage and squeak out every line.

And Miley...goddddd, can someone please pull that chick off the stage?!

Yeah, I loved *NSYNC. You may shake your head at that, but there was a reason to love those boys...they were excellent singers, excellent performers. As were many pop groups before them--the Jackson 5, The Beatles, New Edition, etc.

All I'm saying is, while pop songs are vapid and crappy to begin with, there still needs to be a little talent present. At LEAST dance for me, don't just hop around like an idiot.

Thus ends my rant of the day.


  1. Hey, thanks for the comment - fencing is badass, but I'm STILL sore! It'll be better soon, though =) I live and was born in London, study in Nottingham, but my family are originally from Hong Kong.

    Oh, and I loved *NSYNC too! Somewhat obsessively.

  2. Yay! We can be friends then :)

    London is one of my favorite cities!

  3. Did yo hear about the German band, Tokio Hotel? I think they performed on the MTV Awards or so. They are horrible and the kids love it!!! I can fully understand how you get frustrated with that.

  4. having trouble keeping high fidelity me at bay. too. many. nsync. jokes. :)

  5. kat--yeah, I have heard about them. But I can't hate on that group too much because they have their cute little accents. haha.

    raindog--ha! try to restrain.

  6. When I was 14 or 15, it seemed like most of the popular pop bands out there had members who were at least in their 20s, so they had a bit of age and practice under their belts. Now it seems that 14 and 15 year old kids listen to pop stars who are...well...14 and 15 years old.

  7. wow frank! I thought you were going to totally trash *NSYNC, but you didn't. I'm shocked!

  8. will you try to bring back Chumbawumba too?
