I totally agree, Tavas.

I remember thinking when I saw the video for Def Leppard's "Goodbye"....if this was played on MTV 10 times a day (hell, even 5) it would definitely be on TRL and the album sales would explode.

True, we are freaks. We love our music, we know the names of the members, what they play, what bands they were in previously. We are connected to the scene, we know when new stuff comes out, what to expect from it. We read tons of reviews. We sometimes listen to CDs at least 15 times before we open ourselves to their brilliance. We get excited about rarities, bootlegs, unreleased albums, alternate versions. We are fans.

A lot of MTV's audience aren't. They listen to what MTV "sells" them. That's the problem. I bet your average kid has no idea what all the members of Limp Bizkit's names are besides Fred. They probably don't know of any other bands they started out in. And a lot of them probably don't care. If an album or a song doesn't grab them on the first listen...they toss it. If the new Nsync CD was to sound like Radiohead, I bet 98% of Nsync fans would pronounce their utter hatred of Nsync. But I thought you were fans? We were, but they suck now. Some of us however, would say...you just have to put the time in with it. It's a good CD. So few people are willing to dedicate that time. It's all about the quick hit.

Kinda sad. A lot of people today are just passive listeners.
