thoughts on "rock star: supernova"

It's bad. Like scraping a Brillo pad over your eyes.

Let's recap: "Rock Star: Supernova" is a show on CBS that finds Tommy Lee, Gilby Clarke and Jason Newstead attempting to revitalize their otherwise dead careers by forming a superband called, you guessed it, Supernova. The reality show's plotline focuses on the band's search for a singer -- as well as all the bickering among the contestants.

The band itself sounds like a band that features ex-members of Metallica, Motley Crue, and Guns & Roses, so you could pretty much figure out what kind of shit comes out of their amps. The contestants, for the most part, are the kind of people who listen to local "hard rock" stations -- the kind of people who get Nickelback's lyrics tattooed on them and own at least two Fuel albums. If you don't know, these images come to mind:

Thus far, some of the contestants have been singing rockin' hits by the likes of Evanesence and Goo Goo Dolls, as well as shitting on classics by The Who and The Police.

So with that said, it's terrible, but I'll probably continue to watch it because, during the summer, there's nothing else better on television. It's a new all-time low for me.
