Arena rock is good for you

Andres Lokko may have been voted Sweden’s best rock journalist, but it can hardly be because of an impeccable taste in music. Lokko seems to actively hate any band with more than 6 fans and his main target this weekend is Coldplay, which fans he says “manifest their burning indifference to music by compulsively believe they appreciate X&Y;“.

Well, at least I have the guts to admit I can enjoy a good tune even if it’s middle-of-the-road and I always believed it was possible to listen to both ABBA and And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead. Both Kylie and Kraftwerk. Both ELO and Einsturzende Neubauten. But that’s just me. I just never realized that a music collection of some 600-700 albums made me indifferent to music.

Anywho, in a few hours I will be chanting along with 13,000 others when Goldfrapp and Coldplay play in Stockholm. And it will be a great evening for all us “music-haters”.
