My Thoughts on Popular Music as of Late

Good music I have heard recently:

"Know Your Enemy" by Green Day - Really looking forward to this album.

"Sometime Around Midnight" by Airborne Toxic Event - Good album overall, a bit refreshing to everything else out right now.

"Black Heart Inertia" by Incubus - I just noticed this one online today. Brandon looks so clean cut again! I really hope they make it to Red Rocks this summer.

Crap that has been produced and played lately:

I want to preface this section by saying yes, I listen to the local rap/hip-hop station. Don't judge. It keeps me awake on my commute. Some of the stuff on there is okay, the following are NOT!

"Poker Face" by Lady Gaga - This song sounds almost exactly like her first single. She's the Nickelback of dance music. Her lyrics are stupid:
I won't tell you that I love you
Kiss or hug you
Cause I'm bluffin' with my muffin
I'm not lying
I'm just stunnin'
With my love-glue-gunning

The worst part? It's so damn catchy, you'll find yourself humming along to it.

"Day N' Nite" by Kid Cudi - There's just something about his rapping/singing that bothers me. Like he's not really trying.
