    My mistake, although my point still stands. They played a huge role in making rap more accessible to whites.

    How did it take so long for those assholes to get a mention?

    Used to have a guy at work who worshiped them..once he started wearing the sunglasses, we changed his name from Ray to "Bono."

    I don't criticize other people's musical tastes, but this statement needs to be redressed.

    Just bring up all the money they've made from their "charity concerts."

    Hmmm, my tastes are actually quite varied. I'll listen to a lot, from hair metal to Steely Dan to Nirvana, to Viking metal and a lot more.

    The one band I would probably get rid of is The Rolling Stones. They just suck. To be fair they suck in a harmless sort of way. The other 2? Maybe bands that led to girl power feminist bullshit like Spice Girls and Destiny's child, or as MoMan alluded to Beastie Boys, NWA etc.

    Stones aren't deserving of a band nuke you just said it yourself, there's nothing bad enough! At worst they are super boring but never actually terrible.

    I don't want to nuke whole bands, but just throw some of the assholes responsible out of a SuperPuma, since most of the musicians they handle would otherwise just be 2-bit locals with part-time jobs at the pizza shop and low-level dope habits.

    1. Yasushi Akimoto
    This guy basically created the whole idea of "idol" music in Japan, with groups like Onyanko Club and AKB48. Straight to the helicopter!

    2. Justin Timberlake
    Enough said, he's at the core of a lot of shit music pushed at white people, and having been in NYSYNC gets him in the chopper!

    3. Jay-Z
    Throw him out of the chopper and there goes all that shitty music like Linkin Park, Pharrell, and at least of 50% of hip-hop between 1990-present.

    We've nuked the worst bands already, it's time to go for the assholes in the music industry behind them and drop them over the ocean!

    How could I have forgotten Bob Marley? He's got to go.

    And after him, a Panamanian guy named "El General" who invented Reggaeton.

    We'd help save endless frat boys and half the Latin world by taking these two out over the Gulf of Mexico and tossing them out the door of the SuperPuma.

    Necromancy! I'm reviving this dead thread to proclaim my hatred for the fucking Eagles. Not one song I can tolerate in their catalog, and they are Boomer catnip. It seems I can't go 24 hours without hearing their special blend of milquetoast yet arrogant corporate shit.

    If we could obliterate them, then nuking two more is just a bonus.

    Next on the helicopter is Lady GaGa. She had a few songs that were catchy and enjoyable but it came at the price of helping to mainstream drag culture and gay club culture, and now we have Lactatia. Super uncool.

    Can I count Beyonce and Jay Z together, since each of their last album was really a private conversation/couple's therapy session that should not have been aired on public? Aside from Beyonce's intolerable arrogance, neither one has created anything worth listening to in years. I would never spend money on music from either one, but their lasting relevance and fame into this decade are from cruising in the goodwill earned from some large hits that defined the radio landscape of the turn of the millennium. Between flagging album sales and the disaster that has been Tidal, I don't know how they still have money. If rumors are to be believed, they really don't. Begone.

    I don't like Lady Gaga, but has she really done that much damage? It seems like she was really popular for like two years, and now nobody cares. If you are talking about mainstreaming gay club culture and drag culture... I would think that Madonna would be a worse offender. I like Madonna way more than Lady Gaga, but if mainstreaming that culture is your problem, I think it's Madonna who should get nuked.

    I would LOVE to nuke Radiohead. Like the other bands I listed, it seems like Radiohead has some talent... but being a hard-core Radiohead fan in this part of the country simply seems to be a method of virtue signaling that you are hip, sensitive, deep, and totally in touch with your feelings.

    I'll back up my argument with this: https://www.thestranger.com/slog/20...ight-that-life-briefly-seemed-tolerable-again

    When it was all over, I ran into several friends in the Key Arena forecourt and smiled, hugged, and teared up with them as we shared the experience of vainly searching for words to express the magnitude of the band's prowess, the thrill of the song selection, the overwhelming sense of gratitude, luck, and joy we felt for having been able to be in that room together, to be alive now—in other words, sensations that seemed to be in direct conflict with the alienation and dread expressed in Radiohead songs. Which is and always has been the glorious paradox of this band.

    I've tried to listen to Radiohead before, and all I really get from them is an overall feeling of pretentiousness. I could hardly figure out what most of their songs were even about. I suppose many of them were well constructed from a songwriting standpoint, and they were very well produced, but I've literally never liked anything I've ever heard from them. And like Lamb of God, Dave Matthews, Pearl Jam, and Rob Zombie... their hard core fans are THE WORST.

    Nuke em.

    Madonna always wanted to be a dance artist and the gays flocked to her, but Gaga deliberately courted and imitated them. Think of Gaga as a drag queen who happens not to have been born a man. She appropriated drag culture and repackaged it for straight people, making it easier to accept the degeneracy that followed in her wake.

    I don’t know if I said it yet: Nuke K-pop.

    It’s absurd that there is a Korean pop music chart in America. I get it..it’s a safe alternative to gangster rap & hip hop for middle-class black girls.

    Even talking about Radiohead is very GenX.
