Shame: Boys Like Girls

Note to music industry: Nobody likes Pop Punk. Unless you're and 11 year old girl... and that says something about the dudes who start bands like this.

I have no idea why anyone would think this kind of music is still relevant. It's not 1997, and I'm pretty sure nobody in Boys Like Girls is a former member of blink-182, which would be the only (if piss-poor) excuse for putting out this crap. I don't want to waste a lot of space on this, but my main point is this - It is depressing when counter-culture and the general goofiness that was a happier time for punk music is turned into the squeakiest, photo-copier pop music possible.

The creativity was sucked from these boys a long time ago... This is a prime example of what happens when a record company wants to make a quick buck. Should be fun seeing Martin Johnson mud-wrestling Bristol Palin in whatever version of "The Surreal Life" is available to us in 2015.

Hey, but don't let me tell you what to like. If you're reading this on facebook, go to theshave.blogspot.com to see the latest big "punk" hit from the boys. If you're already at the blog, look out below!
