Unfortunately.

And while I'm bitching about trends in music I dislike, let me state my hatred for the concept that punk rock is all about being as simple as possible.

awesome, thanks for this

Also, KISS were a terrible band, so that doesn't bode well for our winsomely sighing friends up there.

Sigh are really great.

 I would really honestly rather listen to punk rock than Deep Purple or Jimi Hendrix.

Didn't someone say about punk rock that bands who still pretend to not know how to play their instruments after playing them for a certain amount of time are obvious are just being silly?

This. Even the guys from GWAR crap out the occasional borderline competent thrash song every now and again at this point.

And I thought we could be friends.

I don't know if it's what you're looking for, but in some documentary about early punk that I saw, Chrissie Hynde said something like "of course punk died. Any of us who cared enough to do this for a living eventually got good at what we did, which is what happens, and that was the end of punk."

Also, the Archie comic about goths.

Yow! I will never come up with any musical criticism as succinct and as perfect as "It's totally dismal and excellent".

Hm, and I was just talking about Gwar with someone last night.

She mentioned something about her womb and sewers.

Also, the Archie comic about goths.

the best way to make new friends is to... approach strangers and help yourself to their food? goths are jerks.

But Tania, they helped her get her friends to notice her! Goths are nice people and you shouldn't judge, okay.

(Also I do apparently have quite a few albums by bands with black and other non-white members, like TV on the Radio and Love and All Girl Summer Fun Band and Bad Brains and Birthday Suits and Kimya Dawson and Prince) (come to actually look at what I have on my iTunes, I probably have more than 12.5% [even not counting bday suits])

(Upon further reflection, none of that music by black people I listen to is what is commonly considered to be Black music at all, all folk and pretty and maybe rock HMM)

What about orgasmic chemistry.

I can expand the definition of that if anyone wants to roll around to my Fortress of Love.

I didn't even realize he posted it.

Yeah, it was pretty silly.

Applying racial identities to dudes like Prince always hit me as weird. I mean, it's Prince. He is the very definition of a statistical outlier.

The only way he doesn't fit in with the rest of my list though is that he's more famous. None of any of those musicians, like I said, play music that would normally be considered "Black" music. Though I'm guessing it's more of a class status thing than a racial thing maybe?
