"I can't get upset about Soundgarden or the Smashing Pumpkins or someone who's like, every single song has to be compulsorily pissed off. Stevie Wonder is black and blind, and HE'S not pissed off. HE made it ok. Let Billy Corgan be black and blind for two days and see what kind of music he writes THEN." - Ben Folds

SW to his Manager: "I swear, if you put me on stage with the back to the audience once more, i'll sack you"

maybe he should look at his following, all 18 year old college kids who think they're hardcore emo children, and they all whine and hate their life...just like he does.

Given the bands mentioned, that comment prolly came out of the Ben Folds Five "pre-eminently pissed off at guitar rock" period. They were just trying to distinguish themselves, and I really can't blame them. It's no more ignorant than half the stuff we say about Emo and Nu Metal. :)

First off, not every song by the pumpkins or soundgarden are compulsorily pissed off

Secondly,

Wow, i didn't know there was a physical and demographic requirement to whether you can be pissed of or not

i don't get it... stevie wonder is rich... and he does for a living what many people dream of doing... and he gets to know that he did it despite his physical ailment... and he looks like he enjoys doing it. stevie wonder doesn't have any reason to be pissed off.

okay, now that I said all that... yeah, i'd love to hear stevie wonder doing "hello kitty kat".

yeah, because ben folds has tons of happy, positive, up-lifting songs whereas billy's entire catalog conveys no other emotions besides being pissed off. BOTH CORRECT!!!

i like ben folds/five, but i really thought the idea behind rockin the suburbs was dumb.

"let me tell y'all what it's like, being male middle class and white."

Yeah. It's like, everyone knew (hopefully) that the song was supposed to be a joke, but some parts of it are just painful to listen to.

And anyone who gets offended by Ben Folds' coment needs to lighten the fuck up.

Yeah, that's pretty much correct.

OOooooo!!! Sounds like little benny is ticked. Probably because he's a one hit wonder and all his songs sound the same and he knows it.
