All trends do not disappear

You named boy bands as a trend that disappeared. Exactly when did this happen? From the beginning of rock there have been boy bands and now they are more popular than ever with N' Sync and Backstreet Boys. You are just spouting to hear yourself spout. I know you are in your twenties, so I will try to be gentle. When the Beatles came over from England do you know what they were called in the press? "A Boy Band". In the 50's their were several boy bands doing the 4 and 5 part harmony styles just as the new boy bands are doing it. In the seventies we were graced with the "Osmonds", In the 80's it was "New Kids On The Block" and "Menudo". Make no mistake, as long as their are teenage girls, their will be boy bands. It is no trend and it was here way before "quality melodic rock" as you put it, and it has been here since "quality melodic rock" went to the low end of the musical totem pole in the mainstream public.

Just because you have an idea in your head of what a "real rock fan" should listen to does not make it the Gospal! (no musical pun intended there)

Free your mind the rest will follow, be colour blind, don't be so shallow.
