REM was turned on because frankly they started to suck eventually. I'm just calling a spade a spade. Taylor Swift isn't bad because she's popular, she's bad because her music sucks and is fluff for teenage girls.
Taylor Swift's music doesn't suck.
I realize it's about taste- but it isn't awful. It's not Rush, you know?
