I am 23..

I am twenty fucking three.

I AM TWENTY-FUCKING-THREE AND BEING EYE-ROLLED BY MY TWENTY-YEAR-OLD SISTER-IN-LAW BECAUSE I HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA WHO HALF OF THESE PEOPLE ARE.

Seriously, who are "The XX"? Are they "The Double-X"? Are they "The Ex-Ex"? Are they "The Two-Ex's"?!?! And Ben Howard?! WHO?! I thought he was the comedian off Mock the Week! And who on earth was that idiot 90's bloke who was nominated for the award Ben Howard one, because honestly - the Gallagher Brothers should sue him for blatant imitation. Couldn't sound more Oasis if he tried.

I'm not being unreasonable, am I?! Unless it's for "Breakthrough Artist" or "Up and Coming", unless people like me have heard of you, you shouldn't even be nominated. And just because I have no fuckign idea who these people are, does not mean I need to be put out to pasture. Right?! RIGHT?!?!

Yanbu, I'm 25 and have no clue either, and I listen to the radio a lot.

I'm 45 and I've heard of all of them. Seen quite a few live too. I listen to 6 music, have a teenage son I go to festivals with, a music-writer nephew who tells us about cool bands (I was listening to Alt-J for months before the album came out), and 10yo DD regularly inflicts Taylor Swift YouTube videos on me. But we all hate One Direction.

You are 23 and like buble? Young lady you need help!
I am 38, have heard of all of them and don't like any of them, although I would listen to call me maybe on loop for the next 100 years before I would listen to a buble song.

Now, let's not say things we don't mean. Muse are amazing. I have seen them live 13 times so I know this to be true. Coldplay...best live act? No!

I'm 29 and I have heard of all of these people.

Ben Howard is brilliant. Saw him at Bestival last year and looking forward to seeing him again at the Isle of Wight festival in a few months,when I will be 60.
