"Kennedy, whose full name is Lisa Kennedy Montgomery, used to be on MTV."

This sentence made me laugh for some reason.

"and the lead singer kills himself to preserve the band's legacy."

Do people really believe that's why Cobain killed himself? As opposed to, you know, being someone with depression and drug abuse issues?

And given their level of pandering to the fundie Christians (as well as the amount that they all suck), they're all pretty much like Creed to one extent or another, though maybe not quite to the level that Santorum and Huckabee are.

They're all Nickelback.

/I've been anti-Stone Temple Pilots since I got regaled all night by a drunk, balding 20-something trying-to-hard-to-be-a-frat-bro guy about them.  About the third time he did the fist-pumping "S! T! P!" thing, I'd had enough.  I didn't even want to listen to their stuff at that point.

Mitt Romney is Daft Punk- a rich robot.

Ohh..can I play?

Ted Cruz = Hanson
Rand Paul = Bare Naked Ladies
RON PAUL = John Ascroft singing "Let the Eagle Soar"

Even though she got the wording wrong in her metaphor, she did shut down Andrew Dice Clay on Politically Incorrect w/Bill Maher.  That was neat.

I'd compare them to hair metal bands. Lots of flash but very little talent or brains.

She's always been pretty conservative. Even in her VJ days, iirc.

Anyway, Kevin Seal >>>>> Kennedy

Rand Paul is any band where someone else wrote the lyrics.

Ted Cruz is band manager

"Let's say Ron Paul is Nirvana,"

Better idea.

Let's not take you even remotely seriously as any kind of political analyst.

Yeah, we get it, FOX. The GOP isn't attracting younger voters but do you really think putting some washed up VeeJay with LOLbertarian tendencies on air is gonna change that?

Fox is a hair metal band. Out of touch with reality, trying to hold on to it's glory and full of bleached blondes.

That's debatable.

It's still not fair though. N*Sync enjoyed a lot of success in the late 90s.

I believe the entirety of the lyrics to "Stupid Girl" by Garbage applies. To her.  To all of them.

I had the pleasure of meeting Kennedy during a small photo shoot a friend of mine was doing for some clothing company back in the mid to late '90s, she seemed very nice, the whole experience was over in less than half an hour i'd say.

Check out the Power Windows some time, composed of former members of Hanson, Smashing Pumpkins, Fountains of Wayne, and Cheap Trick.

As for the general topic of 90's rock, Enuff Z'nuff.

The Hanson boys, even if they don't have talent, *do* have a sense of humor. And are apparently good friends with Weird Al.

I wish he hadn't.  We could've watched Nirvana fade into obscurity instead of what we have now -- millions of idiots pretending Nirvana was something other than the short bus of grunge.

Second most overrated band of all time after the Beatles.
