Geoff Rickly Wants New Noise, Less Shake It

Posted by - 07:10 PM on 09/08/08
Geoff Rickly (Thursday, United Nations) wrote a guest blog for MTV's Headbanger's Blog about the lack of cause in a one-time revolutionary genre.
From the BlogIn the recent past, bands as diverse as Fugazi, Megadeath, Pearl Jam and Ministry all had songs that raised questions about political corruption, social inequity, personal responsibility and artistic freedom. Today, we see artists more concerned with friend requests on MySpace or wanting to “shake it” than with the problems of our lives.

Not to diss on United Nations, but does every band have to be political to matter then?

Alright, we get it. You don't like pop music. The only thing more unoriginal than Metro Station is people complaining about it.

Naw, people just don't like shitty music.

Look at Jack's Mannequin's new album and then look at Metro Station. They're both pop, but you see the differences.
