Maroon 5, That Train dude, and the faux country pop scene where the males try so hard to be Bad-Boys, but are not, and the females all seek to be Hot, tough and stupid and succeed only on the last...most of R&B this year s/cked! Oh yeah Beyonce and the clones, and Fergie doing whatever, etc - all bad, and shows that pop-music seeks to please 15 yo girls, and only them...

Dang I actually kind of loved that recording of the Occupy drummers/saxophonists. I'd like a recording of that.

Occupy should have used Miley Cyrus because it would have been 'good branding'...Fleet Foxes are disappointing because they are not edgy...unlike LMFAO? God save me from rentable talking heads.

I am glad I don't carry a handgun. If I did, when I hear Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger" I'd probably hurt someone and then myself.

Friday might be on worst of 2011 list of many BUT we are still talking about her. She got her 15 minutes of fame and enough money to pay for college - any college!

Lulu by Lou Reed and Metallica was an abominable craptastic sandwich.

Coldplay's continued demise and precipitous fall from decency with Xylo Myloto. Brian Eno actually destroyed this band. Go figure.

It was not that bad, but I was frankly dissapointed in Puscifer's show at BAM. The music really wasn't up to the technical visual show and onstage antics that went on. Kind of got distracted by the antics, really didn't need the music.
