[…now that they have gotten over being hypnotized by crap!!!
</font><hr></blockquote><font>This begs the age-old question: were they really hypnotized or do they just have bad taste? I think that question is at the root of what this whole thread is about. Yeah, everybody has different taste and likes different styles, but there are some bands that ALL people with a semblance of taste will say are crap. Some bad music is even too bad for guilty pleasure. Britney probably falls under this category. But Sum 41 does for sure. Have you ever met anyone with a record collection you respect that listens to that shit? So I’m wondering if it is possible for someone who really thinks that a band the likes of Creed is really, truly great actually has the capacity to *truly* enjoy a great album like, say, ‘You’re Living All Over Me’. Honestly, if some people are born with taste when it comes to clothes and shit like that, then I think the same would apply for music, movies, etc. Maybe I’m just an elitist prick? <img>
