Yeah...Sad, but true. Meh, it works. So why fight it, I guess.
I don't really get why it's sad... There's no point in actively trying
to be different, because that makes you exactly like every other person trying so hard to be different. Now, I'm not accusing you of this, Sammich, as you are easily one of the most... eccentric
people I've ever come across, but I'm just saying. The best way to be different is to just not give a fuck. Indie bands are awesome for their thing, and popular bands, well, sometimes they have a good reason to be popular.
