Re: Music Theory
1) Most, if not all, of the music must be produced by the actual band members playing actual musical instruments. Samples are allowed, but only as supplements to the actual playing of the music (Soul Coughing is the primary example).
2) Someone in the band must play a guitar. Not just a bass, but an actual guitar.
3) The lyrics must contain clever, interesting, and stimulating thoughts and ideas. Songs about going to Da Club or getting one's groove on are not allowed, except ironically.
4) I must be able to sing the song while I'm driving in my car. Or at least, I must be able to WANT to sing the song.
