The goddamn radio station in this town.

Yes, this town has a radio station. A radio station that plays Maroon 5, Good Charlotte, and Green day all day every fucking day. I know most of the replies will be "Don't listen to it if you don't like it."

Well, there's nothing else to listen to when I'm driving my mother's car. Yes, I have to drive my mother's car because some fucker hit me, fucking my car up, so ICBC wrote it off.

Bastards.

Back to the fucking radio station. Nobody wants to listen to the same 15 shitty songs you play day after day. The song Here without you, by 3 Doors Down... Yes, that was a popular song. 5 fucking years ago. And even then it fucking sucked. The radio announcers try so hard to be funny. One word. LAME. I would like to say that the station is worth listening to on Sunday afternoons, but it isn't anymore.

Why? You ask. I'll tell you why. Every sunday, between 12 and 5 in the afternoon, they have what they call the All request Sunday Cafe. Which, in itself is a fucking retarded name. It's when people call in their pitiful excuses for songs they want to hear, and the station plays them.

I used to make Sunday afternoons worth listening to by calling in some good shit. Now, since I stopped listening to that station, it's all bullshit. I mean, seriously... who the fuck listens to Good Charlotte? Since when was Green Day's Boulevard of Broken Dreams a good song?

I will say, I used to like that song. Until the station played it at least once an hour until it became old and overplayed. Yeah... that took about a day.

They always say "BVLD... serving the Bulkley Valley and Lakes District." Right... how the fuck are they serving us? By playing pussy pop-punk shit day in and day out. By playing the song that was popular 5 years ago as if it was released yesterday.

The only thing good about that radio station is their logo, just because it's lightning. And lightning kicks ass. It's too bad on their building, they had to go and use purple lightning. Purple lightning's for pussies.

There is still ONE good radio station here in indy, but I still wouldn't listen to it cause I just use my iPod and a tape adapter for all my music. Nothing gets overplayed, nothing really gets old, and if I'm not in the mood for a particular song, I push the next button. The 4,000 songs there are kind of keep things mixed up.

Blame Fred Durst (read Blender).... He is to blame for the death of good rock raido. All of the good noncoporate owned stations are fucking droping left and right. What is left is 50 Rap and R & B Stations, 5 soft rock stations for the pussies working in Doctors/Dentists offices and elevators, 1 Lame ass Pop-Punk Station for the fucking trendy SUV driving twenty somethings that have the heard mentality of a GD lemming. The ones that if thier music isnt chewed up, pre digested and regurtated back into thier mouths then it isnt for them.... Quit listening to the shit it will fucking rot your ear drums.

What grinds my gears is a miscomunication between my brain, hand/arm and legs/feet when I try to power shift and I miss-shift. :happysad:

What I don't understand .. is that if there's such an agreement of how shitty radio is by such a majority of the people (not only on this forum, but also in my school and general area), why are the stations still in business?

The only reason this one's still alive, is because it's one of 3 that we get... we get talk radio (CBC), a country station (CJFW), and this one (BVLD)

They all suck. So, it's a matter of which one sucks least.

Tapes/CDs/Silence/Whatever. Roll the fucking window down and listen to the wind. Sometimes there's just nothing good on the radio, and you gotta entertain yourself. :happysad:

That's what I do.

It's kinda too bad mom's car doesn't have a CD player, though. There's only one tape in there, which belongs to my sister and is filled with Linkin Park, hoobastank, and all that shit.

I'll take listening to the wind.:happysad:

Yup bubble gum punk sucks ass. The reason there're playing that shit is because the record company says its good. Then they overplay it so all the 15 year old girls/boys memorize the words and that all they want to listen to. Its all about creating a social norm for music. Which is bullshit because it's an expression, its art. So fuck that, slam your music loud and if poeple don't want to listen let them drive by.

EDIT I can't spell

Don't worry about it UN. I knew where it came from. I was just being a smartass. :happysad:

I really don't have much to add to crappy radio stations because I don't listen to it. Your OP is why I don't. ;)
