Me, me, me - me and my fee-lings, oh, I'm so hard done by. Waugh, waugh, waugh.I can no longer handle the whiny lyrics of '90's "alternative" bands. I just don't care about some guy losing his girlfriend to some edgy tweaker.
Speaking as a fan of Punk and Hardcore, I found the whole "happy happy joy joy" and "boy meets girl, boy goes to mall" faux punk of the 90's rather revolting at the time. Unlike Disco, it hasn't become cute in its old age.
