Dear BEAT BOX, There was a time when, in my eyes, your opinion was to be revered and held in the highest regard. But all this has changed after you made Extreme's "A Song For Love" Single of The Day. I've never heard such corporate crap! Quite frankly "Smash Hits" holds more sway over me now than Beat Box. BOSH, Wolverhampton What a sad admission Bosh. I hope you enjoy all those NKOTB posters and Chesney features. You sad man! - JH >> Beat Box 540 Singles 543 Singles Albums Fanzine Buzz

Dear Beat Box, The fact that teenagers are writing to defend multi-national majors, who's only contribution to music is signing ex-Indie bands, is indicative of the total apathy of this generation. The young are traditionally rebellious and questioning. Why has this stopped? The last time such apathy took place was in the 50s when nothing was done to fight McCarthyism. God only knows what we're going to do. THIS CHARMING MAN, Woking more > Beat Box 540 Singles 543 Singles Albums Fanzine Buzz
