The other day I put on a song by Jimmy Eat World and I enjoyed it god damn it.

But then I but on Yoko Ono and felt better about myself

The two guys from ABBA were musical geniuses.

I've tried to explain this to people but they just won't listen. But behind all the camp costumes and silly accents were actually some of the greatest pieces of popular music ever written.

I don't think that anyone really disputes this. Even if you are not an Abba there is no denying that they wrote very good Pop music. Maybe genuises is stretching it a little and it is a word I barely bandy around but they were a great Pop band.

The fact that they're the most beloved of Sweden's rich musical history is a little irksome.

I have Bang Shang a Lang by the Archies on my songlist. Jughead was an awesome drummer before he died in that explosion in his methamphetamine lab.

i agree.
Winner takes it all is actually heart renching and makes me cry.
It was about their divorce and I think the line "the judges will decide, the likes of me abide" is simply genius with the music.
IT also rings chimes with many people.
I heard it on the radio coming from my brothers in greenhithe back to herne bay and I actually began to well up.
Love is, to me the only worthwhile thing us humans live for and the end of love or the end of something that was once so funny and happy is just so sad.
I also think that great bands express what they are going through and we as the public follow their path and often see parralels.
Abba arrived with waterloo and it was so full of youthful optimism then they showed through song their lives and their pain.
Like the beatles grew up with a whole load of people and the start was so upbeat and full of hope and light heartedness and later it was showing their separations and hurt like let it be.
I see oasis the same. When they arrived it was like a bomb going off of youth and what the hell happiness then songs like let there be love and stop crying your heart out showed the end of the dream.
I think great bands capture a young audience then grow with them.

I have a Lynyrd Skynyrd shirt, a Disturbed shirt, and a "Sammy & the Wabos" shirt, which is Sammy Hagar's band, I guess. I didn't buy any of them, but the only one that I feel proud to wear is my Disturbed shirt, since I've actually been to a concert and looked into their work.

So I'll work on getting this shirt:

I need some fall of troy. <_<

I really fail to see how Opeth's 'Black Water' gets so much praise.

And I used to own a Slipknot shirt.
._. Until I used it as firewood.
