So the grass always looks greener on the other side. Years from now, people will still be into bands from our decade, remeniscing of when they saw their favorite band before they got big, and kids will wish that they could live in the "iPod era"

This is the truest shit ever. Its probably the reason for what I call the "Baby boomer nostalgia" popularity boost of the Beatles, Rolling Stones and The Who.

I got into them, then got bored a few months later. I blame it squarely on the "Girl singer" novelty factor. They would rule so much harder if they cut down on the symphony shit and went the Deep Purple/Accept route.
and the singing dies down for just a second, right? Long enough for my dad to go "This is how they used to transport the Jews!"
