You can have a once-in-a-generation singing voice, write songs like the King of Pop and play guitar like Hendrix reincarnate and youâ€™ll still be consistently out sold by the latest band. Thereâ€™s no sense in fighting it. Boy bands are cheesy, generic, and inorganic, but thatâ€™s sort of the point.
