Loud Music Highlight and Low-light of the Month

In the span of 24 hours, I witnessed two opposite ends of the music spectrum.  While in downtown Greensboro after a night of trivia, I heard an SUV bumping "N*ggas in Paris" ...and it was awesome.  However, the next day while at work in Hillsborough, I heard from across a busy street someone blasting Nickelback with her windows down.

It's really sad that our society has millions of Nickelback fans. I must ask,  "How the hell did we wind up like this?"
