I don't care about any of that, just as long as it's a good product, and yes, music is a product, let's not kid ourselves. In the end, good music is good music and bad music is bad music, that is all.
I couldn't have put it better myself

I guess I must be easy to please, because I love mainstream music. Not all mainstream music of course, but I think generalizations are bad in any form.

I don't think being non-mainstream automatically makes music better than the popular stuff. I've been listening to a lot of non-mainstream music lately, and honestly I don't find a lot of it any "better" or "worse" than what's on the radio.
What 'Non-mainstream' music exactly? That term covers ALOT of music.

i listen to lots of local bands, i'd call that non 'mainstream'. but i mean, i have no problem with mainstream bands, as long as they don't sell out. aka, forget about what music they're making, as long as they're making money. THAT bugs the hell out of me, and is the reason I have gone right off the Lostprophets.
