    Default My experience in a music shop today.

    Ok, something so inconsevably irratating happened today that I was almost forced to chew out the clerk at the front desk(only by telling myself that it wasn't her fault stopped the outrage).The music shop had out a display of what they called "legendary albums" and for the most part it was pretty good stuff.Pearl Jam-Ten,Jimi Hendrix-Axis Bold As Love,Pink Floyd-Dark Side of the Moon, and then I moved down the rack and low and behold there sat a fucking Nickelback album.I could understand if it was a popular albums display but how morally could they put such a crappy band on the shelfs with the likes of Pearl Jam or Hendrix.Has anybody else had an experience where they felt outraged at the mixing of a popular band with an actual great band.

    Hahahaha that's funny. I've never seen it myself, but you should've said something to them.

    i can't understand why you would have such a strong response to that. i can get your initial rage at the misplacement/debasing of the greats by nickelback's presence, but it's nothing to start a scene about. you could have simply moved the albums, alerted someone who worked there (in a calm manner, mind you), or just felt content (or superior) because you are pleased with YOUR taste in music.

    Nickelback is great...lolzorz.

    BUT, as ashxcore pointed out, you shouldn't have made a scene. Besides, it really isn't the clerks fault, it's the management.

    Perhaps you can gather up your musically-inclined friends and make a class-action lawsuit for defaming Jimi Hendrix.

    Your missing the point.Number one I didn't make a scene and kept my anger to myself.Number two this post wasn't so much about my experience but about the very act of the store mistaking popular for legendary.Number three as stated in the last sentence I wasn't angry about placing a band I didn't like on the rack because there were other bands on the rack that I don't like but those bands were legitamitly legendary and not simply popular in this time period.

    Well, Valleyman, you see, they just misplaced an album, lots of stores don't really 'know their stuff', most of the music store owners just know like the top 20 songs at the moment, you shouldn't be outraged or even merely angry, just because AN ALBUM WAS MISPLACED

    Since there were a stack of the album behind it in the display I highly doubt that it was misplaced.Also, once more your missing the point in that my experience was unimportant and merely an example of how it seems that the world has a problem with worship of the popular. All the other records that were on the display deserved to be there because they were albums that were legendary and had a severe effect on their respective genres.However, the Nickelback album was there because the new Nickelback album is out and popular.So, the owner of the shop most likely made an active decision to place the album there so they could move records. This however is an insult to the very title of legendary and an insult to bands that created some of the best music of the last two centuries.

    Yeah ok, so they PURPOSELY placed the Nickelback album in that section, so you should go back there and talk to the manager about it, and call Mr Hendrix about a misplaced Nickelback album while your at it, so that he'll sue the manager and the store clerk too

    Now your paraphasing what others said earlier.While rare,originality is still held in high esteem in certain circles.
