It's rare that music will make me get up and cross the room to turn off the reciever instead of just turning it down or muting it for a moment. The exceptions are things like Dashboard Confessional, Pavement, (or just about any of those other faux-emo, faux-indie bands that make my skin crawl) and certain recent "hip hop" acts that aren't really hip hop and lack the balls to use bass or tell their front man that he has the flow of a retarded 6 year old.

X Ray Spex - Oh Bondage Up Yours though... Holy fucking shit piss I want to not only turn off the reciever but find her and step on her throat until something meaningful and important contained therein snaps and splinters. "They say girls should be seen and not heard..." first of all... do they? And secondly... YOU should be seen and not heard. Just you, screeching fucko cunt.

This might just be the intense sinus headache I have this morning talking. When you're making sounds that make the already "railroad spike through my face" feeling even more intense you need to take all your "but I'm a punk chick!" bullshit and shove into your dirty twat.

Fred on XM is cycling through a huge block of female singers/bands. They're doing a "surface noise" block where they focus on a certain group or type or something that pulls them all together. Bow Wow Wow, The Slits, etc. Fred plays 80s alternative stuff. New Wave, Punk, Electro, etc. Things that typically weren't heard on the radio, but every now and again there's a big hit.

I pity people who's formative music years were the '90s. '90s music is some of the most painful bullshit ever. Very few exceptions.

Pavement are good. Well, they're okay with really good bits.

However nothing compares to 'The Slits - I Heard It Through The Grapevine'.

There are about three songs from Pavement that don't make me want to hurt the members of the band (more than they obviously already want to hurt themselves). I got to endure this skinny quiet boy playing "his music" one morning at work before the store opened and it was the most hideous, painful, "songs to cut your lover's name into your arm by", type thing that I personally didn't believe it was pavement myself at first. I don't know if they've changed recently or what... but... bleeeh.

That's a good example of the faux-indie thing I dislike. Luna is another that people rave about but make me crave a sharp thing in my ear.

Heh, actually, that's The Slits song they played in that set.

You want to try being in the UK then. The chart music here is even worse. It's truly dire.

I can't listen to Mtv, regular radio, top 40, any of that. If it was mentioned on the Grammy's last year, I probably hadn't heard it. Most of my "popular" music is heard in other people's cars, in stores, and on the rare occasion I flip past one of those channels on Satellite radio.

i hate being in the shower when something hideous comes on the radio. do i hop out, get cold and spread water everywhere, or do i just suffer and hope my neighbors don't hear it and think i approve?

I feel that way when O&A is cranked up and Patrice has been scream "FUCK YOU NIGGA" into the mic on and off for 20 minutes and then getting into another conversation about Slavery becuase some dick from Boston called up and made some racists remark.

Not that I care if they approve or not... But I'd rather not have them hear any of that shit. They're all old and white and definitely in a bubble.

I thank $diety that I do not depend on radio for music in most instances.

I tend to listen to satellite radio. If I don't want to hear mariah carey screeching something, I avoid the "90s" and "modern R&B" channels (and it's definitely not like those are ever tuned in anyway). Before Satellite radio, I just listened to things from Karl's collection or things I selected from Rhapsody. But for Rhapsody the selection is limited and for the collection... sometimes I don't know exactly what it is I want to hear. The vast majority of the channels are very well programmed by knowledgeable DJs who definitely know the music they're playing.

If I had to listen to regular, terrestrial, commercial radio... I'd hear a lot less music overall becuase I just fucking wouldn't listen.
