Thanks to the invention of Ipod's, we are now able to carry our whole collection of music in our pocket. It's always great to slap on the headphones, and get lost in music that we love. Being that I love metal and punk, most of my music collection consists of that type of music. But sprinkled throughout my collection of music, you will find some stuff that is less than cool. Here are a few examples:
Taylor Swift: It's only natural that I have the highest selling album of 2009. She writes pretty decent pop music, fused with that twangy country sound. I find myself signing along to some of these tracks, an egregious error for a self-proclaimed metalhead.
Good Charlotte: Back in the heyday of this band, I took a lot of shit for liking them. Their breakthrough album "The Young and the Hopeless" made them MTV heroes. In 2002, I was a depressed teenager, and tracks like "The Anthem" and "Hold On" made me feel like I belonged somewhere. While its not a great album musically, it is one I will throw on from time-to-time.
Hey Monday: More generic female-fronted pop-punk, that is Paramore-light. The songs are catchy, what can I say, I like this kind of music. It's basically pop, but tracks like "Set it Off" have some nice energy.
