    If the first bit of music I heard was the Backstreet Boys, it would only affirm my conviction that music was the work of Satan.

    "Random acts of women driving" sounds like something they'd show right after Cops and World's Wildest Police Videos.

    Frankly, it also sounds terrifying.

    I read the title thinking the group members were endorsing some advocacy group, woman's rights being their cause of choice. Like Adam Yauch (RIP) recruiting others into the Tibet freedom cause. I didnt know their "art" itself was so inspiring that its breaking down the walls of female oppression.

    All appropriate jokes aside, that shows what a nice thing music is. LYRICS and MESSAGES within a song can be bad and provocative, definitely. But its why its hard for me to get overly fierce about what artists suck and what brand of music is "better", when you see that some of the LAMEST bubblegum songs created have helped people perservere through life struggles.

    Something tells me things would've turned out differently if she heard a Lil Wayne album.

    As funny as it sounds to us, the message she was trying to send came through loud and clear. If you didn't watch it:
