Steve Henderson on 12/10/08 - 09:14 AM
...that's what James Montgomery proposes in this week's Bigger Than the Sound.
From the ArticleIt's perhaps the greatest example of performance art I've ever seen, if only because it takes just about every other stereotype possible and satirizes it in one fell swoop. The character has become huge, preening and grotesque, like a villain in professional wrestling or a bad bit of vaudeville. There is no way he could be taken seriously, only he is, which sort of proves just how brilliant Soulja really is (because, really, no one could be that dumb).

James Montgomery writes about what he's learned so far from FNMTV, whether it be about All Time Low's "shameless aping of basically every Blink-182 video every made minus, you know, all the clever bits", Vampire Weekend's inability to be interesting on TV, or even the fact that Beyonce's dad wants to kick his ass, and more in this week's Bigger Than the Sound.

Rage Against the Machine rocks. Their fans, not so much, as they have more in common with George W. Bush than the band they're listening to, writes James Montgomery in this week's Bigger Than the Sound.
From the ArticleAfter all, the dudes doing the damage at Lollapalooza weren't revolutionaries, they were drunk frat guys. Jocks. Steakheads. They were angry, for sure, though I'm not really sure why or at whom. They didn't seem to be the kinds of people who have much to be angry about, actually. And as I watched them stream out of the Lollapalooza gates, shirtless, some bloody, yelling and kicking half-full cups of beer at people, it occurred to me that these so-called Rage fans...

James Montgomery is glad Pete Wentz didn't invite him to his wedding. At least, that's the story he's going with in this week's Bigger Than the Sound. The poor journalist only gets a gold record.
Anton Djamoos on 05/21/08 - 10:15 AM
MTV's James Montgomery whines and complains about not getting anything for all of the hard work he's put into being a music journalist in this week's Bigger Than the Sound.

James Montgomery writes of Fall Out Boy's trek to Antarctica and how it displays that the band are more than the prototypical rock stars in this week's Bigger Than the Sound.
From the ArticleNo, basically, they're Rock Stars, Version 2.0: a bizarre mix of Kurt Cobain, Rick Ocasek and some kid you've got in your top eight on MySpace. They're well aware of the exploits of their forefathers, but they choose not to follow in their boozy, bloody footsteps (in fact, most, if not all, the members of Fall Out Boy barely even drink alcohol). They are exceedingly normal, entirely approachable and very much a product of both the punk scene that birthed them and the online scene they currently lord...
