Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for March 11, 1992
Calvin: The problem with rock 'n' roll is that the generation that created it is now the establishment. Rock pretends it's still rebellious with its video posturing, but who believes it? The stars are 45-year-old zillionaires or they endorse soft drinks! The "revolution" is a capitalist industry! Give me a break! Fortunately, I've found some protest music for today's youth! This stuff really offends mom and dad! Hobbes: Easy-listening Muzak? Calvin: I play it real quiet, too.

I tend to subvert the people who like Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, and Justin Bieber by playing music from the 1980s and 1990s.

I don’t follow Lady Gaga at all. I at least consider a few of her songs to be pretty decent.

This is the “easy-listening muzak” I picture Calvin playing on the radio:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O61tOnGf0Mw

While touring, Weezer invited “Weird Al” Yankovic to play with them on stage for Africa. The video is on YouTube if you want to see it.

The Rock Stars are now 75 year old Zillionaires.

I play my classical muzak while imagining the extreme reaction such music got when it was first introduced. One dissonant piece in particular caused rioting throughout Paris at its first concert.
So what others hear as mellow is sparking an internal revolution.
