    You've got to learn the old Brownsville Station tune, "Martian Boogie".

    I'm sure we all have that one artist who is popular but we can't stand? That guy that makes us doubt the ear of a whole generation?

    Steve Miller is mine, all his songs start with some stupid sound effect that has nothing to do with the song (or even music), his lyric is featherweight (stoner music), his playing is not impressive or inventive. His voice is bland and toneless. I can't find one thing to like about what he has done.
    The only way I can understand his popularity is that all the stoners listen and relate.

    Wasn't that the same time frame (mid '70s?) as the great southern rock bands? Listen to Lynyrd Skynyrd's first couple of albums then see how Steve Miller compares. He doesn't, he falls flat on his face.
