You have bad taste in music

How can one selfless crusader help people with bad taste in music? When you have a megaphone, the answer is obvious.*

But what if you have good taste in music? Chances are you still own at least an album's worth of material you can't stand. Bad songs happen to good bands and many an otherwise-listenable album contains at least one track of absolute shit. You can submit your own compilation of the most awful, skippable songs from your CD collection here.

* Note to Scott: The Ruben Studdard one contains a special guest appearance by KEM!

I would suggest that if you listen to any of the bands mentioned on the You Have Bad Taste In Music guy's site, then you have bad taste in music. He seems to be picking on all the right people.

However, his theory seems to be that if you're finding out about your new music via the radio or television, then you're only finding out about mainstream music, which is usually be bad music. But if you're finding out about your new music through reviews or by just downloading and checking out things you've heard about through friends or whatever, then you're probably listening to more critical darlings or indie bands -- i.e., good music.

It's kind of a rock-snob viewpoint, and you can make plenty of counter-arguments, but it's got at least a grain of truth to it.

I suppose the easy answer is this: Do you like Creed? If so, you have bad taste in music.

Sorry to hear about the sudden onset of unexpected gayness, Sam (not that there's anything wrong with that). Do you listen to Rufus Wainwright, by any chance? Because that's a warning sign. I heard him sign "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" once, and I almost turned gay just from hearing it.
