So let me get this straight... we're not supposed to talk about supposed "boy bands" because even though they can all sing real well and perform some damn catchy (dare I say "melodic") songs, it's not "rock". But it's okay to dig somebody like Steve Perry or Kevin Chalfant who sing well and have catchy, melodic songs (not all of which would qualify as "rock" I might add), because of the simple fact that teenage girls don't scream at them.

Sure. THAT makes sense.

I got news for you, as much as I love the way both guys sing, there's not much that's overtly "manly" about guys like Perry and Chalfant. Does that make them queer? No. Does that make me queer for liking them? No. But the truth is they sing sappy songs about love that chicks dig and which *gasp* we do as well. How does that make them different from an N'Sync or a Backstreet Boys?

Sure, it's not "rock" in the strictest sense, but it's not THAT far removed either. And it's not as if by branching out and talking about them here on this board we're suddenly altering the kind of news Andrew gives us. It's just a thread. A topic for discussion. An interesting sidebar to a conversation. Nothing more. The whole point of this board is for people to get answers to questions as well as be able to just shoot the shit with other likeminded people about a subject near and dear to them. And that's all we're doing. So what if it gets a little off of the track in terms of what's considered "melodic rock". It's still on subject, which is music. You'd have a beef if we started talking about which guy was cuter, or if we were blabbing about the way Britney does her hair.

The ironic thing is, the conversation itself was about HOW those pop bands relate to the bands we like. It's just comparing the two styles.

Is it really necessary to mock what others wanna like or talk about? Or are you hiding something? C'mon, Koogles... admit it. "Bye Bye Bye" has a good rhythm. It's okay... you're among friends. We won't think you're gay.
