The 80's

Reading the Wikipedia article about the band "The Outfield" is just hilarious. "After hitting it big with 'Your Love' The Outfield went on tour, opening for Journey and Starship."

On the one hand, that's friggin' hilarious. On the other the hell out of opening for Paris Hilton and Jessica Simpson.

I kind of miss the days when our terrible music was just cheesy as hell pop and rock rather than cynical corporate swill. I mean when Journey played "Don't Stop Believin'" They MEANT IT! It wasn't because the computer program that calculates the appropriateness of specific melodies for the target demographics reported that inserting a few power chords into the bridge would increase sales by at least 7% in the southwestern region.
