every band got its fan club. Every band got fan freaks who think that their band is the greatest ever. On the net you got thousands of band forums all discussing the music of their lives. How do you make sense of it all? It is amazing to watch. It is exhilarating to listen to. What makes one band more special than the other? Why do we rate one song better than the other? Where will the next tupac come from? Who will replace kurt cobain? Who overdoses next in the prime of their art? When is the next music renaissance? And so on. And so on. And while I ask these dumb questions the music plays on sans apologies to whoever is foolish enough to think that music can be defined.
