A Twitter thingy by Nic Wishart which I though was worth a share/post.

Port Power - Shannon Noll. Only liked by people who drink bourbon premix cans & watch the V8 Supercars.

Richmond - Elton John. Didn't hear a peep for decades but now suddenly HUGELY POPULAR again.

StKilda - Milli Vanilli. One Hit Wonders more known for controversy than talent

Sydney - Maroon 5. Really good in mid 2000s but now it seems they're just not even trying and it's painful to watch at times.

West Coast - Oasis. Burst on the scene early 90s and were instantly huge. Did plenty of drugs and are still huge.

Western Bulldogs - Joan Jett. Loved by Julia Gillard and the working class.

Hawthorn - Meatloaf. Dominated the 80s. Went bankrupt in the 90s. Synonymous with recent grand finals and now in a fight to be relevant again.

Kangaroos - Bardot. No one cared then. No one cares now.

Melbourne - Radiohead. Refuses to play the hits and it pisses off loyal fans.

Geelong - Keith Urban. Not bad but only people who like Country Music give a stuff.

Gold Coast - Jessica Simpson. God Bless them for trying, eh?

GWS - Spice Girls. If they all stayed together they could have achieved massive things.

Adelaide - Ricky Martin. Was huge in 97/98 but haven't done a thing since.

Brisbane - Lady Gaga. People seemingly just realising now how good they are.

Carlton - Kanye West. Hasn't produced anything decent in years but their best was epic.

Collingwood - Justin Bieber. Insanely popular but hated by everyone else and their fans are excruciating to talk to.

Essendon - Nickleback. Wildly popular but they shouldn't be because they're terrible.

Fremantle - Danni Minogue. Living in the shadow of someone more successful.

I can only speak for myself but in my eyes Danni always had bigger..appeal.

Danni has tried to do an awful lot, with virtually no talent.

I hotly dispute the idea that GWS or the Spice Girls could achieve anything massive.

Ah yes,the Pogues. A dedicated following, despite being hard to watch.

I always saw the Eagles, as The Eagles. Slick, marketed to appeal to everyone, successful, but a seething mess of internal resentment, band fights, drugs, lawyers and avoiding police.

I’ve allways seen us as the Stooges. Misunderstood and disliked but in time we will be respected. Chris Connolly was an obese Iggy Pop.

Ps I love Iggy and the stooges.

I relate the club to this after the bye for the past couple of seasons.
