What do you think of..
Cheesy pop: I like it, you can fuck pretention, pop is fun.
Electronic-style music: Often entertaining, although repetitive at times. Good in small doses.
Rap/Hip-hop: If it's inovative (like Eminem was right at the very beginning), then go for it. If it's pointless and derivative (like Eminem is now and has been for three years) then stuff it.
Rock: Woo! :o)
Indie: Has produced some good things, and the nineties indie fad managed to sway a nation away from dance music, which is good...
