Also, many of them are the most embarassing things ever written. As evidence, here's the end of a Pretty Girls Make Graves bio, from this site.
"The album’s high point is the inspirational “This Is Our Emergency,” which reminds us not to give up on the few dreams we have left. “It hasn’t been in vain,” sings Zollo (listen closely, you can almost hear her fist in the air), “unfulfillment is killing you.” The song is a masterpiece, a rousing alarm claxon, a middle-finger raised against apathy, and a group hug all rolled up into an utterly essential three minutes and forty-four seconds.
Some people are gonna say that The New Romance is the album of the year, but forget that: It’s the album of the moment. So put down your iPod and quit Googling yourself. This is your emergency, too, ya know. The New Romance? Pucker up, tiger."
Can anyone find better?
