Rock/rap music today is some of the most sexist, hateful, commercial, non-progressive stuff you can image. The exact opposite of the 60s ideal.
What? Who's talking about women and/or their "place" in society or music?
I was being nice, so here's my opinion so you can understand my intent: I thought/think The Carpenters sucked. Not just Karen, but Richard, their record producer, the putz who signed them so a recording deal, the DJs who played their music, et.al.
