I think Norway and Sweden should take joint responsibility for the entire genre known as dansband.

Yes sorry 'bout that, but at least the spreading potential is limited to perhaps Scandinavia, Finland and Iceland. And they tend to be snappy dressers...




OK, that destroys my belief that all Swedes were good-looking.

Seattle here.

It's much too hefty of a task to sift through all of the acts, but a major culprit would have to be MXPX from Bremerton, a Christian pop-punk band which is possibly the worst fusion of styles I've ever heard, next to Christian Ska.

"Move to Bremerton" was a their big hit when I moved to Bremerton.  They have a very small place in my heart as a result.  I didn't know they were Christian.

It's better than christian death metal.

Oh, I totally forgot Loverboy - though I guess they started in Calgary. Yup, Loverboy is Calgary's fault.

I would like to issue a formal apology to all human kind for the 1963 song 'Dominique' by The Singing Nun.

The 1982 disco version (see it, hear it and weep):

1. Has Freddie Prince Jr. ever recorded anything?  He's from Albuquerque.  And if he has, I'm willing to bet it's awful.

2. The High School Musical movies were all set here, though filmed in Utah.

3. Sparx.

I thought they were okay until they covered "All I Want For Christmas is My Two Front Teeth," with added mentions of ostrich-skin boots and other trendy, not-funny crap.
