Normally when I post these, I like to shine a light on stuff so far out of the mainstream that calling it “indie” would be a stretch (in fact, one artist I like has a song called “Indier than Thou” with a lyric that goes “if I were on an indie label, you could call me mainstream.”)

But not these next two. These next two are giant hits that, I am ashamed to admit, I crank up and bounce my head to in the car. I’m not even sure why I’m admitting this, except maybe I’m looking for absolution. Father forgive me, it has been far too long since my last confession.

First up: Ke$ha. Yes, with a “$” in her name. I’m not proud.

Next. Miley Cyrus. See what I mean?

Gah! Must… bust… out… Daft Punk… or… Method Man…
