I am gonna get hate for this but being a teen in the 90's I liked nirvana but uum I don't think Kurt was the second coming or anything. The only reason he is treated as such is cus he killed himself.
Michael Jackson is kind of another.... most recently he was the butt of jokes until he died then all of a sudden EVERYONE was a freakin' fan. I listened to his music all my life. I was not crazy insane over him. I liked some of his stuff... but c'mon people you were all just makin fun of him now you are crying cus he's dead.
Courtney Love is another I see getting mondo love... uum I don't see it.
I also think most "singers" nowadays who have to rely on autotune or anything is over rated. If you don't have the chops to sound like you do on your cds(without lipsyncing when you are singing "live") then ya need to stop and stop now.
I like a few of lady gaga's songs but would I bother to buy her cds or pay to see a concert? uum no. I don't think she's as unique as the kiddies do.
Most of this crap they play on the radio is why I constantly keep cds in my cd player and hardly ever listen to ANY radio.
