    Boy Bands

    So can anyone tell me how to tell a 10 year old daughter that boy bands are just in for the money and the women? That they really don't have any natural talents? She's obsessed!!

    Yeah I know. I'm surrounded by One Direction merchandise everywhere and she loves to blast that crappy stuff they call music everyday.

    Tried to get her to listen to Metallica and a few other great bands. She does not like metal.

    Yeah. All three of those bands are better than One Direction. One Direction is only around because of Simon Cowell. What ever happened to hard work and then making it to the top? Seems like they give out record deals to anyone these days.

    Try classical music and opera.

    But seriously? Just give her 5-10 years and she'll grow out of it.

    Lol, this is why most people are in bands.

    That they really don't have any natural talents? She's obsessed!!
    She's 10 and therefore part of the demographic One Direction is targeting. I say it's harmless however if she starts going Goth then you have problems.

    She likes Linkin Park. And for the record, Linkin Park is NOT a boy band. Boy Bands are pop based, and don't play any instruments, they just sing and dance, mostly to music that has something in the lyrics to do with girls. Linkin Park is a rock band, not a boy band. I like Linkin Park and Creed.

    Boy, you have a lot vested in this, why do you care so much?
    Because we argue all the time about what a "real" band is. For example i think a real band is members that play their own instruments and write their own songs. One Direction does neither. Just pretty boys singing stuff other people wrote to a beat produced synthetically.

    Hey Kona, how ya been?
    I'm alright. Been dealing with newly diagnosed diabetes. Got out for a ride today. Felt pretty good.

    They don't have a live burlesque show on stage at their concerts like The Stranglers

    Dude, give it up. Do not argue with a ten year old over things that have no consequence. Take this friendly advice from someone that has 4 daughters.

    I kinda agree with you on this. Although I would add that I only feel this way about bands. Some singers never did write their own music and are just as respected, well known and talented.

    Telling a tween that her favorite pop idol sucks won't change her mind. What matters to her is that the band is cute and play music a yute finds swaggy.
    Some boy bands evolve into better music, so you never know One Direction might have some hidden talent YOLO

    I was just thinking I wouldn't mind it as much with the boy bands if she was into Backstreet Boys or NSync. I respect those bands a bit more. They fought their way to the top, they were not given a record deal simply for being on the X Factor. And frankly they both can sing better than One Direction.

    Don't you think your appreciation for them grew over time? I've seen on TV parents being pissed off their kids liked Elvis and the Beatles. Wo knows how history looks back on music.

    This is nothing, when she is older and starts to date boys
    then you have something to worry about.
