Here is this week's Billboard top 10: 1. Drop It Like It's Hot - Snoop Dogg Featuring Pharrell 2. Let Me Love You - Mario 3. 1, 2 Step - Ciara Featuring Missy Elliott 4. My Boo - Usher And Alicia Keys 5. Over And Over - Nelly Featuring Tim McGraw (WHAT?!?!?) 6. Lovers And Friends - Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz Featuring Usher & Ludacris 7. Soldier - Destiny's Child Featuring T.I. & Lil Wayne 8. Wonderful - Ja Rule Featuring R. Kelly & Ashanti 9. Lose My Breath - Destiny's Child 10. Breakaway - Kelly Clarkson I'm 21 and this is so disheartening. When I started listening to pop music in 1994 or so, there were so many bands to choose from: Green Day, Offspring, Nirvana, Metallica, Pearl Jam, Radiohead, all putting out awesome albums and charting high. Will there ever be another rock band that can get both critical acceptance and big sales? Is there anywhere left for mainstream rock to go, or is it dead as we know it? What are teenage white kids buying nowadays? It's not like they have stopped listening to music. I mean, try to think of three great rock bands that broke since Nirvana. Radiohead...um...that's it. Wilco is too arty, Tool is too dark. Where does music go from here? Is the future just more rap and dance? Is this at all similar to the '80s, and some new Nirvana will show up and destroy the entire foundation? Will new rock and roll (although there doesn't seem to be very much "rolling" going in rock nowadays) be confined to the underground from now on? At least I have my Beach Boys and Smiths and Big Star and Beatles and Dylan albums to listen to in the meantime.
