Where the Hell Do You People Get This Stuff?: here’s an interesting piece on teenpop, written from an oppositional but clear-eyed point of view and focusing on the curious fact that everyone who despises it seems to know a great deal about it, when in fact teenpop is entirely escapable. The central premise – that the tedious Husker Du, say, are forever and naturally superior to the fluffy Debbie Gibson – is weak, but it’s an intelligent essay nonetheless.
