Last night on WBRU they played their “flashback of the week” here comes the sad part: it was the Breeders’ “Cannonball” a song that came out when I was a junior in high school *sigh*
So they play the song, then the female DJ comes on and mentions how the song was featured in some “teenage girl movies” in the 90’s… and continues her diatribe by completely insulting the Breeders by saying that they aren’t – how did she put it? I can’t recall her exact words, but basically she insulted the way that they look?! what the hell? What because they are not blonde haired blue-eyed size four woman with big fake breasts?! Not to mention, what happened to oh I don’t know, a musician’s musical talent?! This is why the music industry is a complete joke, because even the alleged liberal radio stations are still stuck in this ridiculous mindset that woman are supposed to bring on the sex appeal regardless of age, ethnicity, talent or brains.
