Powerful beat, repetitive simple theme, inane lyrics, random dynamic choreography through the set, complete blockage of normal mental processes, what's not to like? 

Who's this Obscure artist?  Never heard of him.  Do you have a clip?

You may remember Seven Nation Army if you owned a radio in the late 2000s. https://youtu.be/0J2QdDbelmY

Fell in love with a girl also got a lot of airplay around 02. https://youtu.be/fTH71AAxXmM

Personally I prefer the music he made in The White Stripes to his solo career,  but the man can play a guitar.

Okay, I know the White Stripes. I didn't know he was in that band.

Just for clarity, Jack White is not obscure. He's been a Big Name in music for the past several years, though not always as a solo act. I could be wrong, but I would guess more Americans recognize his name than Joe Rogan's. He's definitely more of a celebrity than Guy Fieri.

I think at least a couple of us suspect you are.  ;)

He's definitely more of a celebrity than Guy Fieri.
So he's got his own TV show like Guy does? I didn't know that.

Heard of Joe Rogan many times.  Heard of Guy Fieri many times.  Never, ever heard of Jack White.

I believe Jack White does the vocals for the female character in the "Danger! High Voltage" video.

FWIW, APS is not a representative sample of the US. There are probably a lot of Very Famous Music Industry Figures many of us do not know. We're old.

I recall someone here having to explain Old Town Road to me, a few years ago.

Why do I have the suspicion they are just making fun of modern tastes in music?

This theory seems to fit the data as presented.

This morning I went and did some work with a woman on her farm.  Out of the blue she asked me if I was "Trumpist" or something.  I told her I was a Republican though Trump "wasn't exactly my favorite person" (which is accurate).  That seemed to satisfy her.

I like the woman quite a lot, but why did she even bring it up?  What would she have done if I was a huge Trump fan?  Would she have been obligated to hate me?  It was just bizarre.  Talking about politics with strangers is just a bad, bad idea for the most part.

Donald Trump is sparking fears among those who understand the inner workings of the Pentagon that he would convert the nonpartisan U.S. military into the muscular arm of his political agenda as he makes comments about dictatorship and devalues the checks and balances that underpin the nation’s two-century-old democracy.



Now, bracing for Trump’s potential return, a loose-knit network of public interest groups and lawmakers is quietly devising plans to try to foil any efforts to expand presidential power, which could include pressuring the military to cater to his political needs.

Those taking part in the effort told NBC News they are studying Trump’s past actions and 2024 policy positions so that they will be ready if he wins in November. That involves preparing to take legal action and send letters to Trump appointees spelling out consequences they’d face if they undermine constitutional norms.

I have noticed that both NBC and The Hill are going full bore on the House Harkonnen stuff the last few days. Stories on Trump executing people, etc. It is mind-boggling to me that there is some segment of society that truly believes this stuff. Let alone "reputable news sources" actually running with it.

The scary part is you wonder if they are just accusing Trump of something they already do or they are trying to justify some future actions.  Sad to think about that and realize I could easily see it happening and these people cheering it on.

Stretch Armstrong must envy this reach:

4 years ago, Trump's reckless order led to the assassination of an Iranian general, triggering events that have killed 3 US Troops.

Let’s be clear: @POTUS Biden is measured and ALWAYS values Troop safety, while Trump shows NO regard for consequences.

ELECTIONS MATTER.

The mind boggles.
