From The Onion
Mugger can’t believe crap victim has on MP3 player
BOSTON—Following the successful mugging of a jogger in Franklin Park, petty criminal Derek Mesker announced Monday that he cannot believe the shit he's found on his victim's Philips 20GB MP3 player. "3 Doors Down? Maroon 5!" Mesker said, scrolling through the songs. "The new Counting Crows?! Man, I'm glad I pistol-whipped that motherfuck." Mesker added that the first thing he did was toss the device's "gay-ass" teal neoprene case.

I'll say in defence of Maroon 5, such as it is, that among many other genres I happen to like harmless, catchy pop music that, except for an updating in instrumentation and production values, sounds like it could have come out of a 1920s radio or wind-up gramophone.

Muggers don't. Oh, well.

As for Counting Crows, I agree they were largely a marketing invention. Adam Duritz is a nice fellow with modest talent.

To be fair, Roger & Me is great, he told the truth at the Oscars and I understand Fahrenheit 9/11 is at least good.
