Anybody else out there vehemently NOT listen to any free BillBoard Top 40 stations anymore?
3 years ago, I decided I was done with BillBoard radio because I was tired of having to hear Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana, and a host of other mainstream bands over and over and over and over and over again. What eventually wore me down was the fact that “Hard Rock” stations would masquerade themselves as being “metal” and play lite rock shit like Train, Coldplay, 3 Doors Down and others. When your radio station is stealing from a lite rock station, it’s pretty bad, IMO. I just realized that “BillBoard radio” has nothing to offer me. The next rap superstar (who likely will flop on the sophomore album from extreme overexposure), the meaningless pop music, and awful alternative “filler” music may fit the status quo, but I’d rather listen to something with meaning. Maybe it’s my metal bias, but I just can’t and won’t listen to Hinder or Nickelback (for example) worshipped twice an hour by an awful DJ on an awful playlist.
I haven’t listened to anything mainstream in 3 years and I’m happier than ever.
Anybody else out there hate Billboard radio stations?
