Something That Bothers Me

So I don't usually listen to a lot of Christian music, it's not that I don't like it, or have anything against it, I just don't. Anyway I was doing some searching today for some sites that give Christian alternatives to secular bands that I could pass on as a resource to parents, and I came across this site that really ticked me. On this site (which will remain nameless) They had some Alternatives like:
If you like Goo Goo Dolls then try Jars of Clay
If you like Linkin Park then try Kutless
If you like Coldplay then try Tree 63
If you like Black Eyed Peas then try Toby Mac
If you like Rage Against The Machine then try Pillar
If you likeDave Matthews Band then try Caedmon's Call
Now I happen to like all of these bands quite a bit, but don't insult my intelligence by suggesting that Caedmon's Call is ANYTHING like Dave Matthews Band. And I can't remember the last time I listened to Goo Goo Dolls and thought, man! this sounds like Jars of Clay. I understand what these people are trying to do, and it's good, but maybe they should at least listen to the secular bands before they try to find an alternative. There it is, my rant.

Understadnable rant. It's interesting what some Christians come up with.

yeah that comparison crap is totally wack. The premise is all wrong to being with. It's like this is a bad band but if you want to listen to a 'good' band then you should listen to this cause then it will be sorta like you are listening to the bad band that you really want to listen to in the first place. Hey its kinda like 'the patch'. hey we can wean you off of evil music. but everybody knows chewing nicorette or wearing the patch is nothing like a thick stoggie between your lips...
