Remember when Avril Lavigne first emerged, fresh from a Hot Topic sale, riding on the handlebars of a BMX and singing about skater boys? Sorry -- "Sk8tr Boi"s? Frankly, that video was so contrived and stupid we remain deeply offended…

Avril Lavigne, Chad Kroeger, and How Celebrity Gossip is Misanthropy Without Tears

I've been thinking a lot about Avril Lavigne and The-Guy-From-That-Awful-Band this week. (By the way, the band's name is Nickelback. But from now on, I'll refer to him as TGFTAB, otherwise pronounced "Chad Kroeger," if you're reading this aloud). Maybe…

The Question of Our Time

When Green Day's Dookie dropped, it was like a bomb going off. Mainstream America, jostled from its suburban slumber, ran screaming into the streets … all the way to Tower Records. It wasn't punk's finest hour. But did the band's…

Rehab Is for Quitters

Don't hold your breath for tortured torch singer Amy Winehouse to go to rehab. It's kinda like hoping for Sanjaya Malakar to get voted off of American Idol; folks, it ain't gonna happen any time soon. It's been said that…
