Someone that see's it the way I see it! Exactly right Tavas. I can't even say anything here because you were right on. But you know me, never short winded, I'll think of something. :-) You know what though, if you REALLY think about it....things aren't much different now than they were when this music was supposedly the in thing. Where I live, it was never in. It never had radio airplay or TV commercials, just MTV. And of course we know what happened to that channel.

This whole genre' for years has made it basically with little or no radio airplay, and I think that really means something as far as the people that are/were into it. Think of all those 80's bands that sold out arena's........how often did any one of us hear them on the radio? Even when it was the "in thing." My memory serves me right....never or almost never. We took away the make-up and the spandex, so it's all up to promotion. Now is the time to push what we do. Music is at an all time low I think. Most of the dudes on the new scene can't play, can't sing or even wash their hair. When Dishwalla split, (now that guy could sing and the band could write) I made up my mind that I'd never listen to the radio again....and you know what.....I've held up my end. It sucks, and I won't support it. A good song is a good song, bottom line, and people aren't as dumb as we think they are. If we gave them a dose of real music maybe this would catch on now.

One good thing Alt/Grunge did for rock music is it brought heavy distorted guitars back in the mix and made it acceptable to the public once again. Run with the ball I say!! This is our time!

Just think about what gets rammed down their throats as far as what the airwaves play. No wonder why they like this new @!#$....there is nothing else to wet the pallet!! Grrr.....this pisses me off, I better go before I start saying stuff I'll be sorry for. At any rate, excellent post Tavas! It's nice to see someone else feels as I do.
