Indeed, but I thought Sandusky's original use and definition were pretty close to describing what I don't like about it. Ya know, like when he says 'sad', but it sounds more like 'sod'. Although, I don't think there's anything wrong with writing songs for women and/or to get laid.

That is correct. Everything you say must fit with the ACT established social precedent.

This goes for musical taste as well.

exactly. i spin my 97s cd's when the vacuum is running so that i can't hear the rock and roll lite coming from my speakers. i have a promo copy of fight songs and whichever one came before that. snoozefests all around. i enjoy some carefree pop music just as much as the next matchbox 20 fan, but the 97s are all sizzle and no pop as they say in the short-order cook lingo.

I enjoyed their Chili's commercial song.

Almost all of the singers I like sound like chain smokers and Rhett's voice is the rare exception. Maybe a little effeminate but, damn, I wish I could sing half that good.

This thread is fucking gold. Need to start memorializing certain threads.

I clearly stated in the thread title 'DON'T READ' if you're a hardcore fan cuz you're gonna get fired up. This is just my stupid opinion, and always remember I've started 3 threads in the past about how much I love the goo goo dolls!
hey look Sandusky telling RMR not to leave the board over a disagreement...8 years ago!

This thread really makes me miss Shane's contributions here. Nothing against anyone else here, but I'm pretty sure he loves music more than all of us combined.
