I'll be the first to admit my musical tastes aren't very "diverse," and that's just the way I like it.

Jigga's good, but I was disappointed with the Black Album.

Right now, it's: Trapt - Headstrong

Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I think it's the feeling of knowing songs other people havn't heard of that makes it special, like it's your own. Kinda like anti-conformity, which punk music used to be, and now it's the ultimate form of conformity while shunning the very type of music they produce (ie: Sum 41, Avril Lavigne).

I'm sure that's part of it, but there's also the aspect of supporting folks like Emm Gryner (speaking of Canadians :-) ) who got a raw deal from the music industry powers that be (see the Mercury-Universal merger).

People get upset when the band they got in on the ground floor with hits it big. Some of it has to do with their songs getting overplayed to the point that you can't stand hearing them anymore. But also some of the groups really alter their sound once they hit the mainstream in order to stay mainstream and keep producing radio-friendly hits. I don't blame them. Whatever gets you the money I guess. I think two prime examples of this are Sugar Ray and Incubus. Both were pretty hard when they started but once they had a radio hit that was more laid-back and mellow their next release was more tailored to that one hit song. After "Fly" Sugar Ray came out with the album '14:59' which was more summery laid-back tunes, a far cry from their songs on 'Floored' and an even farther cry from their debut 'Lemonade and Brownies'. Incubus had this great punk-funk fusion thing going (see S.C.I.E.N.C.E. or the EP Enjoy Incubus). But once they had their hit with the song "Drive" they started doing more radio-friendly pop songs, which irritated their original fans. Again I don't blame them, you gotta go with what works I guess, but I think that it attributes to a lot of backlash from original fans.
