B List: How to Hate Music in Five Steps Or Less, First Lesson

1.  A popular band makes it a point while on tour to stick with performing material familiar to their fans, reckoning that this is what they most want to hear.  Detractors cite this as a reason the band is unadventurous, predictable, and dull.

2.  One night, the bandleader, deciding to mix it up a little — and, perhaps, having caught word of the detractors’ criticism — adds a more obscure song to the set list.  The band performs it with great skill and energy, and the crowd responds enthusiastically.  A video of the performance becomes viral.

3.  The rendition proves so popular it makes its way into the regular rotation.  Detractors cite this as a reason the band is unadventurous, predictable, and dull.

4.  Vamp till cue.
