Deep in the Darkness That Is the Early 21st Century -- an Anthem!

I’d forgotten how much heart and courage a great song can provide in times of dark passage. Great songs have been hard to come by since Clear Channel and its corporate compatriots filled the airwaves with insipid girly pop and growly-voiced crap from soulless, whiny cyphers in between commercials. “Fader” by the Temper Trap actually makes me glad to be alive and in the fight. I honestly can’t remember the last time a song made me feel this way.

I wish the rest of their music was half as good. They’re a one-hit wonder, but—what a one!
