I hate it because it's a conservative break on any sort of musical progress being generally recognized. Instead of playing things that are actually good from more recent years we're stuck with "Led Zeppelin", "Pink Floyd", "Beatles", "Queen", plus a whole lot of other, much inferior, mindless stoner/alcoholic rock which is only remembered today because it sold beau coup records and wasn't too offensive to anyone. Perfect top 40 material. I hate it because of what it's done to our musical culture. Instead of exploring anything generally good we're stuck with a bunch of conservative stoners listening to the same crap which was popular thirty years ago while the culture associated with them dies a slow death from sheer tackiness, cheapness, and complete dessication of anything worthwhile.
Fuck the radio stations which play it. Let's get rid of this shit and recognize some artistic achievement which has taken place since 1975.
