I liked all the winning entries, but I admit to shouting FUUUUUUUUCK along with the winner as he smashed his guitar. The world needs a little more rage. Thanks.

So wait, you get a Fender Strat for pretending to be smashing up a Gibson SG?

The winning entry was pretty good, but I preferred the one where there was a whole band and they all had paper cutouts on their faces. More humorous. But still, winner was good. But if that guy breaks a guitar every time he breaks a string, he better use some heavy gauge strings.

OK! You can sound like crap while trying to imitate Pete... but can you sound like genius and awesome while trying to do your own thing? No? Then stop windmilling and do something new. Cobain is dead, and there will never be enough Foo Fighters singles to bring him back... do something brilliant and evil and new, it's better than reconstructing nihilism you weren't a part of, and will never understand.

Awwww. It's almost like you think popular music actually means something. That's adorable.

Depends on your definition of "popular" and/or "music", I suppose...

Pictures of Lilly, indeed.

And "something" too, don't forget.

(I'm more of a Mirror In The Bathroom type, personally speaking)
