I was tempted to put this in the main pool related section, but I think it deserves mentioning aside from its effects on my pool game.
So there's a juke box at my pool hall, and I am constantly reminded that people have more dollar bills than musical taste. So, since they've "made a couple dollar bills," it helps them pass the time by playing the most horrible music over and over and over again. Now, I don't want to single Kid Rock's meaningless drivel as the only poor choice, but it's certainly the most requested fare, as in five songs right in a row. And then 20 minutes later, again I am subjected to Bahwiddahbah.
Now, I don't hate Creed... Like, for instance, I'm not plotting their destruction every moment of my waking life, but if I by chance found a way to take away their first amendment rights to freedom of expression, I'd be clubbing their pansy rock heads in before you could say,"What's this life for?"
And the thing is, Creed's music isn't awful (certainly not on par with the aforementioned Rebel without Musical Talent). It's just mediocre. And after living in "My Own Prison" for nigh on a year, the mediocrity begins to wear.
Now honestly I'm normally the guy that says, if you don't like something, change it. Like, in this case, I would tell myself,"Take your money up there and play your own songs." Unfortunately, this is completely infeasible, because I don't have $400 a week to spend beating my fellow pool hall patrons to the artistic punch. So I'm in sort of a quandary.
So if you're reading this and you own all of Kid Rock's and Creed's albulms, please select one of their songs and then use the rest of your twenty dollar bill on some other bands. I mean, the guy ahead of you just played "Cowboy" 12 times. Surely, you have other musical tastes.
