BLENDER Calls Bullshit The 33 Most Overrated in Rock
Samples from list
2. YOUR FAVORITE BLOGGER’S NEW FAVORITE BAND Thanks to the Web 2.0 bubble, it’s now possible for a next-big-thing band to go through the Hootie and the Blowfish career arc in four hours. Yay, Web 2.0! The problem is, the OMG! Best Band Ever! zombie rhythm of blogging doesn’t work for music, where it really does help if you play the song a second time. The hype-backlash cycle has gotten to where the next Black Rainbow Wolf Hunter go from novelty to has-been by the time they’re recording their second song.
32. KISS Memo to Gene Simmons: Either take your shirt off or put your pants on. As a band, they’re about as perfunctory as Gene’s sex tape—they’re a tiresome, bickering circus act with a few decent glam songs.
29. GETTING RICK RUBIN TO PRODUCE YOUR RECORD It’s not 1986, you’re not the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Johnny Cash is dead. Underrated alternative: Getting Rick Rubin to produce your beard. LOVE it.
Daring to call out the media hyped crowd. I like it. Who'd they leave out?
It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com.
I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed.
Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
