The Most Popular Discussion
The Smells Like Sour website was launched back on September 16, 2003. Since then, I've been maintaining it and my friend Mark Carey has been hosting it. It has become a popular destination for people looking for discussions about the latest rock song on the radio. Of course, some discussions are more popular than others.
Today I decided to check the stats to see which song has generated the most interest based on the number of posts. Much to my dismay, the song with the most posts at 191 and counting is Good Charlotte's "Girls and Boys". My friend Marc Felice submitted this awful, awful song on September 18, 2003 and the rest is history.
I should point out that exactly 13 minutes after Marc submitted "Girls and Boys" (probably because he knows how much I dislike the song) I posted the first comment trashing the band and submission. What gets me is the discussion about this song has 191 posts while the page for The White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" is stalled at six replies. When it comes to popularity, mediocrity will win every time.
