I mean, I don't even own any rap albums, and don't really listen to rap, but really... at the end of the day, who cares about sales? I'm pretty sure metal sales declined in the 90's when grunge hit the scene, but it didn't go away. I doubt rap will either.
I doubt want rap to disappear, but I am would LOVE to see it disappear from MTV, MTV 2, the radio, VH1, our schools, society's fashion, etc. In today's world, the most popular people are either emo 'rockers' and gangsta rappers....Its bullshit.....

I predict emos will cry 21% more this year, and their balls will shrink 21%

EMO IS A PUNK SUBGENRE, NOT AN ADJECTIVE FOR DIPSHIT TEENAGERS WITH NO FASHION SENSE!!!!

I'm being serious when I say who the fuck cares? Would you rather those people be wearing Iron Maiden shirts? Would you rather MTV go back to showing metal garbage (ie crap like Warrant, which oh man... them and Poison and everybody were sooo much better than the throwaway pop garbage on there now.) Mullets used to be popular too, you know.

Does the fact that something isn't popular somehow affect your enjoyment of it?

I have said it before and I will say it again: I would rather have another 15 years of Warrant & Poison than another 15 seconds of Daniel Powter and James Blunt.

But to answer your question, I would rather somebody pull an Osama Bin Laden on MTV. Preferably right in the middle of the VMA's.

Yeah, I would like that too... that way the general public can get the image of metal being retarded in their heads again

Heheheh, well, yeah... but still, I wonder how hard it is for people to turn off MTV? You guys probably have 100s of channels, go watch HGTV or something.
