That’s right, I went there. Look, I used to be a huge advocate of this genre. It was fresh, new, exciting and edgy. It was rebellious and fun. But most of all, it was UNIQUE. Bands like Paramore, Cobra Starship, and Metro Station provided the music that fueled me, made me feel unique.
The fact is, I simply can not say the same thing about these bands now. They all sound and look exactly the same, which is something I can’t stand. Also, their popularity is so widespread that it’s not even possible to call them “alternative” musicians anymore. Wasn’t that supposed to be the point?
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m totally over this fad in music. It’s old, lame, and basically a one-trick pony. I think it’s about time we all move on.
