Five "sacred cows in need of a good bricking."

"But what – I suggested to editor Tim Jonze – if we turned the cliche on its head and made it about genuinely wank bands that everybody pretends to like, much in the same way that everybody pretends to like Guinness even though they really think it tastes horrid and would much rather be drinking lager with Ribena in it. We could, I proposed, finally expose Nine Inch Nails, Sonic Youth, Teenage Fanclub, Belle and Sebastian, Tim Buckley, Big Star, Wilco and My Morning Jacket as the emperor's new faeces-streaked underpants that they actually are.

I received a curt response: "Guinness is the best drink ever," wrote Jonze, "just like Teenage Fanclub are totally amazing."

There's some primo takedown here, even if I don't agree with 75%-80% percent of it.
