Ill Fits has to be the worst band name I've ever seen on BV. worse than Amazing Baby.

I wouldn't even know where to start on a list of bad band names. This generation jumped the irony shark a long time ago.

I just heard Meatloaf "Bat Out Of Hell" on the radio and I realized that we really don't know how to make good pop music anymore. Go listen to those early Elton John records, or Meatloaf, or even Blondie or The Cars. There was fire and hooks in those songs. Whatta we have now? Lady Gaga does not have this, Ke$ha does not have this, Justin Beiber .... NOT. We need a new wave of good pop music. Who's with me?

Does anyone know why the Eels went on so early last night? Turns out they went on at 10 instead of 11? Did an opener cancel?

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2011 10:31 AM

I honestly really liked the song.
