The mob has spoken

Last Friday Billboard magazine released official sales figures for the most successful musical ‘artists’ of the last decade.

Blahblahblah Mariah Carey, blahblahblah Black Eyed Peas… aah, here we are. Whilst naming Eminem the highest selling solo artist of the decade may not come as too much of a shock to most, prepare to lose your mind and your pants over the highest selling album.

Music today needs more marionettes, damn it!

Uh huh. Nsync. Or nSync. Or whatever. That boy band with Justin Timberlake.

According to Billboard, THIS monstrosity sold more than 10 million copies. Which makes this song the number one single from our most successful album of the past 10 years.

As Bill Hicks might have said, there must have been a LOT of 13 year old girls making babysitting money in the early noughties. The music industry keeps bleating about illegal downloading, but if we hadn’t all done it we probably would have been afflicted with even MORE Nsync albums, year after year after year. And nobody wants that.

If this isn’t enough to shake your faith in humanity, this is the decade’s highest selling musical group…


Until next time, I’ll be over here in the corner curled in the foetal position, at least until I get wind of the inevitable Nsync reunion tour. Hey, do ‘I Want It That Way!’

What do you mean that was the Backstreet Boys?

Do it anyway!

    I know some people say that Global Warming and our many others environmental issues were largely due to polution from the Baby Boomers but, I strongly suspect it was Nsync.

    Wait a minute… the presidential convoy, grassy noll, “tearin’ up my heart”… my god, it all makes sense now.

      If you’re implying Nsync was a CIA-run operation then it would explain why at least 2 of the 5 members have disappeared into what could only be a witness protection program, and why the U.S govt. is prepared to allow Lance Bass onto a space shuttle. I think it’s to see if gay boy-band members can survive / dance in zero gravity.
