Like the back cover of Yanqui U.X.O. is just some paranoid stuff GY!BE completely made up because they were bored!

no, it is fairly accurate, it's just the logical leap from "you like something on this label" to "you're sucking this label's corporate cock and that makes you a horrible person" that falls flat.  sonic youth?  major label.  should i not buy their albums because that is somehow funding the NWO?  i'm super-paranoid about that stuff but even i draw the line at some point.

I don't buy a lot of Top 40, and I don't even think everything on it is necessarily good. Talking about it is a different thing entirely from purchasing it, though, and that's what we're advocating with this thread?

People get confused because Christo's still alive? Shame about Jeanne-Claude, but I guess at least she had a decent innings and got to make some incredible work and not many people get that.

which makes khar's raging against the machine even more pointless.  i suppose he's just trying to be funny, but if not, well.

Are we hacking out some obscure post-colonial epistemiology terms to return to this bizarre idea that I am criticising pop music because I want to reinforce the class sytem or because I hate women or some total patronising bullshit?

Gaga looks strange, acts strange, and we're not sure if she's packing penis in her panties.

That's the general appeal beyond music.

Huh, now I want to find alliterative ways of saying she has a dong.

There was one aborted single that was really good (I forget what song) but the whole record kind of made me retroactively embarrassed for 2005, especially the one track Missy Elliot parodies herself on.

You know... This has been one of the most entertaining threads to read.
Khar, some good points and I agree with you and I think the whole 4 corporations controlling what people listen to is crap. but also there is some fun music that comes out of that "arse". I have found myself humming along to a top 40 song I know on the radio and I'm fine with that. But I love the indie bands man. The real artists. The ones who have to scrape up cash to self produce an album, the ones who edit and record it themselves.
But also remember some of the top 40 artists had to deal with that also.

But I'm not an elitist or whatever. I just like whatever has a great rhythm and mood.
I don't care who it comes from, I'm a whore like that. :]

While we are certainly past this point in the discussion, I would like to point out that I feel that being a living incarnation of the back cover of Yanqui U.X.O. would be immensely better than being a living incarnation of the Top 40.

It's kinda got like 6 different tracks in it and they're pretty varied but at least 3, maybe 4 are bangin.

Also, sam the fact that this isn't your favorite T-Pain video bums me out.

dude those are the bands you've never heard of.  your arcade fires and interpols and wavves and deerhunters and brian jonestown massacres either stealborrow money from their girlfriends or grew up rich enough to afford telecasters.

at least some rappers genuinely grew up poor.  indie rock is the music of middle-class white boys.

Oh you mean their EP? The actual single they released was like shitty trance though, which I am predicting will be the trend of 2010.
