Best selling album:  "No Strings Attached" by N'Sync
Top Single:  Mariah Carey
Top Artist of the Decade:  Eminem
Top Group:  Nickelback

I thought for sure top group would've been Green Day or U2.

Evidence that the general public have no more fucking taste in music than they have in anything else.

Always remember Billboard is the most honest about its lists and awards. They have but one criteria - $$$. If you sold the most albums, you're #1 in Billboard's list!

It doesn't matter how shitty it is - if more people bought your album or single than anyone else's you'll get a Billboard award.

Whether you agree with the quality of the artist in question is something that is immaterial to the process - it's ONLY based on sales for Billboard. It's thus the only music award I feel has any use as a metric, and then it's only for the business side. Everything else is too subjective and inside-politics-based for my tastes.
People of the United States! We are Unitarian Jihad! We can strike without warning. Pockets of reasonableness and harmony will appear as if from nowhere! Nice people will run the government again! There will be coffee and cookies in the Gandhi Room after the revolution.

Arguing with a Unitarian Universalist is like mud wrestling a pig. Pretty soon you realize the pig likes it.

Yeah, I think this is more of a commentary on the record-buying public than Billboard.  I mean, I will admit I have the typical old-guy music snobbery.  That everything that's been produced since I was young sucks goats.  But I'm sure there is decent new music out there that has been totally ignored by the masses for the past 10 years.  Or maybe music really does suck that much.  Who knows.

I confess that when I drove a muscle car and went by "Lola", I listened to them. But it was FUNNY.
