    Some people are music snobs and turn their noses up at songs that are popular with the general public.  They disapprove of hits, and prefer to sing the praises of obscure (and often inferior) outtakes.

    P.S.  The above is probably an unpopular opinion.  :D

    Assuming people dislike a song because others like it is as silly as assuming some like it because others do also.

    I can see why Bruce was so affected after talking with him.  He's very intense and direct.  Wish the interviewer wouldn't have stepped on some of his answers as I would have been interested to see where they were going.  

    I was thinking the exact same thing. He sounds like a man who knows exactly what he wants to say.

    Yes. The White Stripes. 5 of their 6 studio albums could be in the list, as only their first album is from the 90s; and the only one is Elephant at nr.48! This list is rubbish and can not be taken seriously. (Tbh the last 2 White Stripes albums are probably not really great albums but De Stijl or White Blood Cells could be in the list).

    Exactly. Apart from Get Behind Me Satan (which also has some really great songs), it’s an amazing discography. I think that, easily, their first 3 records should be on that list.

  4. She’s working on a new album and, from her description, I’m excited!

    Q: What’s the vibe of the music? 

    A: I’m glad you asked that because it’s really raw and edgy garage rock, like a Black Keys, White Stripes vibe. Just really rocky, grungy. I have some ballads, too, some slower, more sensitive songs.

    The first time I ever heard the expression was in relation to Las Vegas and I kept puzzling over what the hell marmite had to do with Las Vegas...

    Never had marmite and never been to Las Vegas but I’ve smelled marmite and I’ve seen pictures of Las Vegas and I don’t think I’d want to actually try either!
