For me it was Guns N' Roses. It was 1987/88 and I never wanted them to get bigger than mid-size clubs, and every time someone in my Grade 8 class began to sing 'Sweet Child Of Mine' or talk about them, I got angry. I was angry for the sole reason that they were MY band, and no one else's. My bedroom wall was covered with their rock mag pictures months before they even an utterance on anyone else's lips.
Everyone has a band like that where they got too big, sold out or the people who started to like them weren't true fans like you. It may be Nirvana, or Muse after they had their songs on the Twilight movie soundtracks. All that work you put in nurturing and protecting that group or artist, down the drain. *sigh*
Faux Rawk fixes that, because the bands we have aren't real, so they can't get too big. You can sound as snooty as you like while proudly wearing your Faux Rawk rock shirt, listing off their fake debut album songlist and spouting their backstory.
So go ahead and lift that nose in the air. You can be a music snob with the help of little ol' us and our fake-yet-ultimately-cooler-than-most bands.
