CFNY's Dirty Little Secret

RadioI thought my campaign to weed out safe pop-rock completely void of any soul or integrity was going well, until I heard All-American Rejects' "Dirty Little Secret" on CFNY Edge 102 the other day.

Way back in August of 2003, I called for a complete ban of sound-alike, wanna-be-punk, nauseatingly mediocre bands that were starting to secure way too much valuable radio air time, forcing me to dive for the next station preset all too frequently. Leading my hate list were Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, Not By Choice and All-American Rejects. In the ensuing three years I was pleased to hear less and less of this slop, but "Dirty Little Secret" is precisely the kind of song I can't stand. It's W.E.A.K.

As shown in the recent Toronto radio ratings, Edge 102's bread and butter are males aged 18-34. Nobody in that demo likes "Dirty Little Secret". Trust me.

I have actually heard that song stopped in mid-play by two different DJs on 102.1.
