Unpopular take (not trolling) I think Justin Timberlake is a true professional though and has an admirable work ethic. Being famous seems like a stressful, full-time job. He became famous at such a young age, handled it, and has consistently worked the last 20 years, including projects that branch out from music. From what I can tell, the amount of gigs he takes, dedication to fans, and just a willingness to engage, to me, deserves the success that he has.

If you take a band that I love, but is the inverse, THE STOOGES (and not their current status, rather, in the 70s), sure they made cool sounds and were talented but missing gigs because your an unreliable junkie is not the way to get on the fast track to success.


I love JT. Future Sex/Love Sounds was the record that made me listen to pop music. Still love that record, even though it sounds very 2006/Timbaland. ;)
I wish I could dance like JT.

Can't agree more on JT, both comments.

I think Tool are worth the acclaim.
No comment about Tool fans.

I only came here because I saw something about Lungfish and wanted to talk about them being cool.


DH talking about repetition in this interview was really cool.

I mean how famous is famous here? I don't really consider Unwound or Drive Like Jehu "famous" but they both deserve all of the admiration they got and more.

For a band that I'd consider famous, Coheed and Cambria deserves it.

The only thing Coheed and Cambria deserve is a blindfold before the firing squad.


Drive like Jehu are pretty rad though

I can't think of a snappy enough comeback so:

No, both of you are wrong due to that I may have heard of those bands but I haven't ever bothered to listen to them which means most people that are not extreme nerds have and therefore not famous.

What about The War on Drugs? Not saying it's my favorite thing ever, but I do think it's pretty great and they're in the world of "bands that normal humans have potentially heard of"
