Hi my name is Lauren. I’m 24 years old and totally not interested in current pop music because of things people call Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber. I have never heard a Justin Bieber song in its entirity and I never plan on it. But for some unlawful reason the internet is always packed full of his biberlicious face, and I’m quite sick of it.
I wish I could Eternal Sunshine the entire world from this phenomena. But I can give help to others like me with this bit of musical solace.
1. “One Headlight” from the Wallflowers. I’m sure Justin Bieber wasn’t even alive when this was originally released. This also proved with the help of Jacob Dylan that it is possible to be a heart throb without being a child.
2. “Underdog” by Spoon. There maybe a hidden mariachi in this video, but no hidden bieb’s:
3. “Freak of the Week” Marvelous 3. I was in love with this song and Marvelous 3 when I was in middle school. I put this on like every mix tape I made for my friends. I just had a penchant for guys with tattoos and guitars, okay? And I never had interest in those slicked-out backstreet boys…Obviously I would make a super bad current teen.
4.”1979″ by the Smashing Pumpkins. Surely a world that gives us “Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness” would certainly never Bieber us.
5. “Meet Virginia” by Train. I picked this song because I heard it yesterday on the radio, and it made me think of when the song came out and there wasn’t a Bieb in sight.
Have a Bieb free weekend!
