[Hilarious Axis Of Awesome Clip.]
I am a motherfucking birdplane. (Sorry, I love them)


Also I agree with you but then I never really liked pop music so I don't think it has gone downhill recently - most of it has always been lame. That isn't to say though that a simple song can't be good. Sometimes less is more, even in music.

I HAVE SEEN THEM LIVE. IT MAY HAVE EVEN BEEN THAT GIG.

I have seen them live too but only once. Unlike my sister who has seen them many times because she has a weird thing for Jordan.

Only concert I've seen live that was funnier than Axis of Awesome was Tenacious D.
And that is only because you haven't seen Weird Al.

Oh, I dunno... Jack Black is pretty freakin' funny.
I have seen Weird Al live (big surprise there, right?  I won't tell you who else I went with, but it
was someone much cooler then I).  I didn't really have the highest expectations; I mean, sure,
his songs are funny, but how long can he go and still be funny just one after another....

Actually, though, it was a really good show, very theatrical.

In my estimation, and anyone/everyone is free to disagree if they feel so inclined, I would put
Weird Al in the category of artists-whose-shows-are-better-than-their-albums...

...and I like his albums.

Jack Black makes an entire audience simultaneously orgasm musically.

Jack Black just doesn't do much for me musically. I've only ever really liked Wonderboy.

No Tribute? I won't lie, that song is fairly overplayed. But still pretty awesome.
And the self-titled album is mostly skits so not much musical substance, which is probably part of why you hold this opinion.

Maybe people will disagree with me but I've been thinking about what dates music and I think 80’s pop music in particular seems to be less timeless when compared to the rest of 20th century pop music. There are exceptions of course but the 80’s stands out in particular. I think it might have something to do with the superfluous use of new gimmicky technology that was cutting edge at the time, which has since been surpassed. 

Over the last few years, use of vocoders (+ the creative/incidental use of pitch correction/alteration) has become increasingly popular in pop and I wonder if perhaps it's going to date music in the same way. It's not that I'm opposed to vocoders (& pitch correction/alteration) or that I'm especially bothered about contemporary pop becoming dated; I'm just intrigued about what we might be saying about the use of vocoders in pop a few years from now.

the vocoder's use in popular music is approaching the 40-year mark. they're part of the musical landscape now. I don't know if quantized vocals (aka the AutoTune Robot effect) will have the same staying power.

I hope not, though.
