@Morven: That's what I did this thread for.

It's not exactly naive. And it can happen. But it's tough. And definetly worthwhile.

Is anyone else as tired by all these accusations of selling out as I am? Sometimes it seems people equate being popular with being a poser.

Ugh, I get ya, Rume. It gets pretty tiring. People should just listen to the music they like and stop complaining so much about the dudes who do it.

Also, people eat food. Not music.

Yup. I once saw a youtube comment that was basically "OMG gaiz, I just realized NIN is mainstream now, the sky is falling!1!!one"

Also, does anyone have any guilty pleasures?

NIN were mainstream long before My Space existed. And it didn't make them suck.

Trent Reznor not being fucked up and miserably depressed made them suck, though.

Oh my yes, guilty pleasures. I still think The Spice Girls are fun to listen to. And the older I get, the more I actually like listening to the awful songs that were on the radio as a young teen. Late 90s/Early 00s

I'm glad he's not fucked up. The music is still good, just not as raw, and it makes me happy to know that he's doing good. Does that sound weird?

I own some embarrassing stuff. And still listen to it.

@lolipod: I've had extreme trouble connecting with anything Reznor's produced in a long while. Perhaps I need to re-approach it without trying to compare it with his earlier stuff.

Guilty Pleasures:
Three Days Grace
Korn
Disturbed

^ That's probably the best strategy. People are always comparing his work to The Downward Spiral, when they should be looking at its own merits. I thought The Slip was one of his best albums.

Sometimes when I'm listening to something really awful and embarrassing I'll be seized by a paranoia that I will have a car accident and die and people will look at the last song I was listening to on my iPod.

@Morven: I figured you would.

I want to use it as a movie soundtrack someday but I shudder to imagine what kind of movie such a soundtrack would go to.

@Landy: I feel bad because I laughed. Sorry.

OK, I swear to anyone who knows me that this is the las time I'll pimp Soda Stereo

OK, I lied, but still...

@Charlatan: and they have a second album! Also available there. This is cool.

@Juan: I'll try them, then.

I really recommend their unplugged album. It and Nirvana's are the only ones I can really tolerate, IMO
