Sound Opinions on Conan

What happens when two rock critics go on the Conan O'Brien Show? Well, they insult the Doors and the Dead along with drummers (right in front of Max Weinberg no less) and reference Kraftwerk and phone calls from Bono. It might be a first for network TV to have on rock crits like this (which they can thank the writers' strike for) but Sound Opinions commentators Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot chatted about all of the above and more on last night's show. In case you missed it, it's archived online at nbc.com (chose the Monday, Feb 11th show- they're in the third segment).

Note the 60's boomer references about bands ("what do you think of the Dead... the Doors?"). I guess that's COB's demographic but I was hoping he'd ask about some later stuff too- would have been hilarious to see JD and GK pile on the Eagles or question Nirvana's greatness. Just be grateful that they didn't have to discuss Britney's latest disasters...

Wow...I didn't realize the strike had left shows THAT desperate!
