Petty Pop Music Aside
On the way home yesterday i heard a radio story about the band Fallout Boy, specifically about how they play with perceptions of sexuality. They acted like it was a big deal that the lead singer/bass player (that's a cool/unusual combination*) wears mascara. Okay, fine, but, as i shouted at the radio in unhinged fashion: "Robert Smith beat you to it by 20-odd years!" Sheesh. Do some research, lazy radio story producer.

*Other bands fronted by bass players: The Police, The Call. Bands with hot bass players: Smashing Pumpkins, Zwan.
