.... saying NO to pop music since 1988

Well I've spent all day at my mother's with my little [in age not size due to her pasty addiction] sister telling me just how great T-Pain's new song is and how my music is just people screaming. This came as a surprise to me partly because my sister stopped eating something for long enough to form a coherent sentence, but mostly because in this day and age people still think that they can accurately predict what music somebody listens to based on their attire alone. It is for this reason I give you a follow up to my Top 5 Bands That Deserve To Be Massive Aren't with my:

Yet Another 5 Bands That Deserve To Massive But Aren't:

1. Rusko - Christopher Mercer is a DJ who goes by the name of 'Rusko' out of Leeds in England, when he first started in 2007 he stated that he was going to work away the 'darker side' of dubstep. Since then Rusko has remixed various singles and worked with artists such as Rihanna and even Britney Spears.


2. Enter Shikari - This band have had a lot of coverage locally but never really managed to make it mainstream. Enter Shikari have released 2 albums since forming in 2003 and even reached the number 16 in the UK album charts.


3. Kasabian - This band has been going for over twelve years and are currently working on their 4th album. As with Enter Shikari, Kasabian have been quite popular in the UK for some time but have never really made it anywhere else.


4. The Kills - The Kills are a hybrid American/British band with a female lead singer, since forming they have produced three albums and have had one of their songs feature on the official soundtrack for The Losers


5. The Rapture - Out of New York City, The Rapture have been making 'dance-punk' music for almost 13 years. I hadn't even heard of this band my self until one of their songs was chosen as the theme to perhaps the greatest television show ever made.


.... who the hell is T-pain anyway?

  16. Pop music is overrated. You're demonstrated here that there is good music outside that genre.
