i dislike the song, but your assessment is dreadful. their debut record, "behind the front," is banging.

at least the bumps/lumps song is half-way funny.

jackson brown has written 100 versions of the same song, and they're all much worse than BEP. in this shyte bin, one must also include the bulk of bob seger's material. while we're raking muck, let's not miss alan jackson (are you freaking KIDDING ME?) and toby keith. that, friends is soulless and humorless trash. believe me, i could go on for days. BEP is far from the end of the sidewalk, friends.

b
yeah, yes...

hollaback girl = #2 song of 2005

just another illustration that we are wallowing in, to borrow a phrase from someone else, a 'mass degeneration of taste that celebrates the meaningless and absurd' in this country. there are limitless examples ... celebrity cooking showdown, anyone? .......

Why do you say this? I know next to nothing about them. What's wrong with these guys?

Isn't the singer supposed to be hot? :-?


My main gripe with them is that they are currently making some of, if not THE, worst music that I've ever heard. The "embody everything that is bad about the music industry" bit comes from the fact that they used to make pretty good music (as benjapage pointed out), but they have become such sell outs that they have completely gone astray of their roots and will now make any song, or do any promotion, to make a buck. They were originally signed to Eazy E's label, Ruthless Records, but they were a "conscious" rap group, which was unlike anything else on the label. Because that was the during hayday of west coast gangsta rap, they couldn't think of a good way to promote and sell their type of music on that label, so the first album was tabled. When they finally did release their first album it was pretty good, and although sales weren't great, it was well received by fans of that genre (myself included). Eventually, they decided that making good hip hop wasn't making enough money, so the changed to make hip pop instead. They chose radio play and club hits over good music and respect. Then, if that wasn't enough, they decide that they needed a white girl in the group to appeal to a broader mass, so they held tryouts and found one that was good enough looking, and had a good enough voice, to help them sell a few more records. Also, the fact that they changed the lyrics to one of their songs so they could sell it to the NBA to allow the NBA to make the 2004 finals nearly unwatchable by playing it waaaaaaaaaay to much is beyond reprehensible. Any self-respecting music group would not change the words to their songs in order to be more PG and allow them to sell it to be used on TV (I realize that there are hundreds of groups of all genres who have done this in the past, and are currently doing it, but it really sticks in my craw when a hip hop group that I was fond of when I was younger sells out to such an extent). Anyway, I don't expect everyone to agree with me, but I think that the music that they are currently making is disgraceful.

I guess my feelings can best be described using their own lyrics.
From 'Bridging the Gap':

"I know I'm not the only one that's filling the void
Creatively hip-hop is being destroyed
A lot of rappers really need to be unemployed
because the topics that them talk about has got me annoyed"

I second Art Vandelay. It's kind of like what Jay-Z did, too (although Jay was better than BEP at their best, they both sold out their music to commercialism). It's sad to see such talent go down the drain.

LOL @ acs. Funny stuff.

I do agree with what Art and DK say, but only to a degree. The goal is to make money. If I were in their situation, I would sell out, too. I think most people would sell out. I think selling out is rather inevitable and I don't see why people should seem so angry and surprised when it happens.

It's not inevitable at all. Take a look at Immortal Technique; he passed over a 7-figure deal because Sony wanted control over his lyrics. It depends on how much your musical integrity is worth to you.
