The rap and dance music dominating the pop charts is rubbish. I listen to Top Of The Pops and after three tunes, it makes me want to kill somebody. It’s just so nauseating. And all this rap rubbish. It’s just computerized rot. Everybody’s got the same keyboard sound. Anybody who can use those pathetic drum machines to the extent they do and haven’t even noticed how rubbish they sound, well, they sound real rubbish.
