Advance copies of the debut by Busboys-and-Fishbone-reminiscent African American Georgia rock band El Pus were subtitled Vol.1: The Bogard, but those last two words were gone by the time the album came out—your culture wars at work, maybe? But as for crunk deciding to get quiet, and rap songs about girls with big Bibles, and Radio Disney stars who call exes dorks and blatantly rip off both "Wild World"/"It's a Sin" and "More Than a Feeling"/"Smells Like Teen Spirit," who would ever have predicted that?
