"Enema of the State" is the kind of album title a very dim-witted person would deem clever.

Personally, I consider myself someone who enjoys nostalgia. But this article (via Alyssa Rosenberg) about the boom in twentysomething nostalgia mostly reminded me of bad times via the phrase “three of the biggest bands of the period — Blink-182, Limp Bizkit and Creed — have each reunited for summer tours.” What a bleak period! Those bands are terrible. Any time you have a list of bands such that Blink-182 is by far the best, you’re in big trouble.

Can’t we have nostalgia for other, better moments of fin de millennium music? Keep it Like a Secret, Emergency & I, and 69 Love Songs were all released in 1999.
