Bovril f**king Latrine does not introduce decent rock music to the younger kids! It's more Pop rubbish and our children should be shielded from such nonsense! : ) It's worse than anything produced by Louis Walsh because they're trying to pretend they're not pop where Louis' creations flaunt it.
Your point of guitar based music and "real bands" stands though - we have the likes of Coldplay and Travis to thank for a lot of the start of it. Nu-metal was doing it's thing at the time (just picking up over here) - it helped metal, but the pop element quickly caught on. Then we've had all the "The" bands (The Sherms for example). That's all fine and well - standard chart rock really. Not as good as metal, but a hell of a lot better than pop!
Anyway, that's my opinion and if you don't agree with it, you're wrong! :p
