I posted this in the Grammy thread and IMO needs to be reposted.

Pokey LaFarge's take on bands like Mumford and Sons:

"For us folkies, and maybe this arrogant, but I think a lot of people are rubbed the wrong way by bands like Mumford and Sons," LaFarge says. "I think they're people who are somewhat exploiting certain forms of music rather than honing it in and evolving from it. I think it's more like dipping in the well and snatching and grabbing."

I'm all for groups that actually play instruments and write songs, but I FARKING HATE this band's music.  Fast banjos are bad enough but this guy's voice is like audible poison.  I cant turn off the radio fast enough when I hear it.

So, I didn't watch the awards show but they mentioned seeing Bruno Mars perform with Sting, and so I looked that up and I'm all covered in goosebumps now.

In case you need somewhere to direct your "mainstream" hate, please watch that video and fill yourself with rage at the popular artists having fun together.  It is so mainstream that it will make you puke!

I've only heard one song by them, and for about 5 months I thought they were REM.

Let me help, you hipster douche canoes.

Lots of bands spend long careers sucking mightily and consistently, but without actually knowing it.  A Grammy is outward confirmation from your peers of what you've suspected all along.  You are terrible to such a degree that you can never be redeemed.  Fortunately for you, that confirmation came early.  Now you can quit sucking at music, and open that little B&B you've been dreaming of.
