You tricked a whole generation into believing your music was good and the hipsters are not going to take it any more. Grand Funk Rail Railroad or ELP were highly successful, so by decree of those who subscribe to the Successful Backwards Principle they suck. It has nothing to do with music in any objective way. It's about disregarding past opinions. Elvis was one of the greatest singers of the 20th century. No one will mention him. Take a singer who can't sing a lick and people trip over themselves saying how great he is. If you don't learn what is up is down and what is left is right you will always be confused about what direction hipsters are going.
... and that is why GFR sucks.
Brilliant. Have this printed on a t-shirt and send it to Frowny. I'll pay the shipping charges.

Hell, I'll pay for the shirt too.
