    I hate you... you have ruined my life and contemporary music as we know it.

    Just listened to a few new songs by them, namely "The Time". Now, I can't say I enjoyed the original to start with, but whatever musical merit it had is now completely gone.

    So, who is your pet peeve of the music world??

    They lost all cred when Fergie came in.

    Yay, yet another synthesised black dudes voice in a "song". I really feel sorry for the kids for the last 10 years with what they're given to work with in building musical tastes.

    Would also explain the rise around here and practically everywhere really, why everything has to be a fucking doof doof "dance party", with the crap that's always depicted in these "events" these days.

    Good point except we had a high percentage of really good artists around too, unlike today.

    While I agree with the general sentiment in regards to "The Time" - ie, WTF? - and I don't really know much about BEP beyond that they've been accused of selling out when Fergie was brought on board... I'll just point out that both the videos posted from "pre-Fergie sellout era BEP" both have a fairly high reliance on female vocals.

    Based on that, I'll just say it looks like Fergie was brought in for the full time position that they kept bringing the blow-ins in for.

    From memory fergie wanted to get into BEP for ages (even when she was still in that girl band, cant remember their name)

    They finally let her feature in "Where is the love?", the song went nuts record wise and they kept her in.

    Im just waiting for them to disappear, they're upto what? 3 songs now from their last album that have been shown to be almost word for word ripoffs from lesser know artists.

    I think you can say the same thing about a lot of bands/music groups.

    Look at Muse for example; they had some good tunes when they first started and now they sing mass appeal shit which is just horrible.

    Same goes for U2, Greenday, et al.
