Thursday, March 08, 2001 - Entertainment - Sporty Spice pulls out of Spice Girls - March 8, 2001

What a sad day. Music will never be the same again. Who could forget the stabbing sensation in the brain felt when their first hit single dominated the airwaves? Or the press conference where they proclaimed that their slogan was 'Girl Power!', striking a blow for all oppressed girl groups that also had members who looked great in tight, revealing clothing. They paved the way for other pretty, empty-headed artists like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, while getting disgustingly rich in the process.
Do you wonder whether the guys in the boy bands understand how short their time in the spotlight truly is? The Spice Girls sold 38 million records worldwide, but were basically done by their third album. The downhill slope has to be close for the Backstreet Boys and N'Sync and 98 Degrees. Where's the next Nirvana to save us from pop oblivion?
I'll tell you where.
His name is Matthew Good. His band's new album, "Beautiful Midnight", was just released in the U.S. And he's got enough cynicism and vitriol to make Kurt Cobain look like a Backstreet Boy.
