Music is, to coin a phrase that is also wrong, in the eye of the beholder.  That said, there are a lot of people who are ready to judge you for loving the likes of Nickelback, Coldplay or The Insane Clown Posse.  That’s really sort of a shame, as even the worst music in the world (it’s actually a tie between that one Kid Rock song that rhymes “things” with “things” and defiles ‘Werewolves of London’ and ‘Royals’) has something to offer and might soothe a particular savage breast in the right setting.  No matter what combo is your favorite band, two things are clear: Journey is universally awesome and all the Teen Nickelodeon stars tried their hand at an album, leading to today’s ensemble query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) used to worry when I explained that The Monkees are awesome and my number one, but now I’m old and contrarian, asking: No judgement: What’s your favorite band?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. A tie between The Monkees and Korn. What can I say, I like what I like, and that covers a fairly broad range of music. The only thing I’m not crazy about is most modern rap and country, and even those have exceptions. But those are the two bands I seem to listen to the most and are the bands I would most like to see live performances of again.
