    Let's hear it, members and moderators.
    For Fart:
    -The Police. "Message in a Bottle" concludes with something like 29 repetitions of the phrase "sending out an SOS." Come on, man.

    I'll go ahead and cover all my fellow former stoners: jam bands. I'm not deleting wholesale, but I've gradually pared down the Phish and String Cheese in my iTunes library. One day there's going to be a big purge.

    Even though I make an exception for the Grateful Dead, whom I still really enjoy, I've gotten rid of a bunch of their stuff, too. I didn't need 10 different Dick's Picks taking up space.

    Wonderwall by Oasis. Loved it at first but then it went too far.

    I used to be very obsessive about a genre or band or even a record.
    I've always been eclectic, but I'm not as prone to obsessing for long periods of time.

    They are much shorter phases. In the past year or so I went through a Cream phase, a Buffalo Springfield/CSN phase, a Cake phase, a Neko Case phase, a Smiths phase etc.

    When I was younger, it was years at a time when I immersed myself in Pink Floyd, the Doors, the Stones, the Cure, the Dead Kennedys, the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan.

    Bruce Springsteen. I don't own anything past "Tunnel of Love," won't pay megabucks to see him live again after paying $5 to see him last time, and when I read the set lists from his latest tour on another thread, I hadn't heard of half of the songs and had no desire to check them out.

    As Rockpile once said, "And so it goes, and so it goes."

    I grew up listening to Christian rock. We don't have enough bandwidth on the website for me to sit here and list all my musical regrets. So much great music I didn't hear for so long...

    When I was a teen/early 20s, I listened to the Insane Clown Posse. Now, when I say listen, I don't mean I had a few CDs and thought "not bad." No, I was a juggalo, complete with all the expected buffoonery. I only listened to them and bands in "the culture." Now, not only do I not listen to them, I actively go out of my way to not hear them. Even got the tattoos covered up.

    I can count on two hands, maybe one, the times I've made an exception to this over the past decade.

    So, now, I really can't say I listen to any "bands" just a few random songs I happen to like. The only albums I have in my car (as opposed to mix CDs) are Rob Zombie's greatest hits from 2003 and a Korn greatest hits from 2004, the latter of which I only listen to two songs. Oh, and a Weird Al CD that I only listen to one song.

    "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star"

    The song has more than the one verse, but you wouldn't know that because folks just sing the first verse over and over and over and over.

    And the melody is the same as the ABC song and "Baa Baa Black Sheep," so it just drills itself into your skull and expands like some sort of malignant growth.
