Protest music

Unexpected place to hear diverse music: the protests in Washington, DC this weekend, which I attended from Friday until Monday (hence the lack of any site activity - oh yeah, and there’s my term paper due next Tuesday too). A couple of those ragtag bands beating on garbage cans were actually pretty neat. Far from the most interesting part of my experience, but still.

What exactly makes “cheesy” music “cheesy”? Trite ideas, or just a certain type of sound? I wonder because I have a difficult time sometimes, trying to describe why I dislike an album or song because it sounds “cheesy” to me. Hmm…
