To call yourself a musical elitist and then ask what happened to this band is exactly why you should take that away from your profile. They were, are, and always will be terrible.
themusicelitist is the name of my WordPress blog and its meant to be ironic if nothing else.
and I thought RJA's last record was pretty good. Wasn't the best music ever, but it was sure better than the jock rock shit they're playing now.
