    We should post a link to that website where that guy has the megaphone and tells people they have bad tastes in music.

    Wow, I think I lost a few IQ points by reading that. Though, the reply about the WWE was great.

    But, Hilary Duff = Yum, Yum (It's good to see a girl who isn't anoerixic.)

    I also like the one where the punk musician says Avril is the best, and the one that says, "get over hilary and stert listing to real music like AVRIL LAVIGNE", and the one that says, "get some stage tips from like Gwen Stafani, or Pink or some one like that".

    I think I'll do what I suggested and post a link to that site.

    EDIT:Well I've signed up so I could post, but it's taking forever for them to email me the activation link. Stupid VH1.

    Hilary is better looking, and she also seems to be a little more certain of her place in the music business. Her music is poppy stuff and she knows it. Avril (where or not it was said, it was implied) seems to think she's hardcore punk.

    I wanna see her be on the Warped Tour next year...she'd get a taste of what real punks think of her garbage.

    And once again, Hilary Duff is hot.

    Real punks died off a long time ago. And I've been to the Warped, and if thats what real punks look like then.......Avril has nothing to worry about.

    Screw the Ramones, Clash and Sex Pistols. They are vintage punk. What I was referring to at the Warped Tour is the Rancids, Bad Religions, Rise Againsts and Black Flags, not the Simple Charlotte Good Plan fools.

    I'm not saying that I have anything against "vintage punk", I'm just tired of hearing that "punk is dead"...If it's dead now than it never existed.

    Go listen to OLP Coutts boy.

    ::cough:: narrow mind ::cough::

    Have you even listened to either of them?

    Hillary and Avril themselves might not be the most talented, but both albums have great musicianship, great production, and great song writing. Just because they are not showing off with mad technical (ie. Vic Wooten, Jaco, all prog metal) doesn't mean that it isn't good music

    Music tastes are personal...not public.

    Avril Lavigne gets my vote.

    I can understand how you think "He was a skater boi, she said see you later boi" and "You thought I was going to have sex with you? NO WAY" (Paraphrasing) are all three of those.

    You're right, but neither is what they (Avril, Hillary, Simpson sisters, etc.) do.
  17. So he likes the music. Why should he listen to someone saying "Oh that sucks" if he likes it? Like what you want, don't let people tell you what is good based on THEIR opinion. Opinions vary.

    well... what follows is basically the standard answer to the "good music vs. bad music threads"- it's still true, though.

    Most of the mainstream stuff, Britney, Christina, Avril, etc.
    is good or even great POP music. The "hooks" are there,
    the arrangements are exciting and thought out. If there is a real live element in there, you can expect an absolute top player to have done it. The track has been mixed by the best engineers... All in all the people involved in the creation of those tracks are very likely much more musically gifted than the most of us.

    Besides, there are no measurable criteria for "good" or "bad" music. There's certainly a difference in the intellectual demands that some music makes, though, but not everyone is impressed by "hip" chord voicings or "outside improv". Or choir arrangements. Or incredibly fast tempos. Or... You get the point.
  20. Pwned. Whatever that means. :D

    I didn't bother reading half of that thread; the language was terrible. I can only hope that when people like that turn a certain age, they learn how to be grammatically correct.

    I matured long before my time. :D
