    Outside of country, I am hesitant to name one artist that I would call myself a fan of. I love Angel, I Shall Remember You and Building A Mystery but I wouldn't call myself a Sarah McLachlan fan...mostly because I'm afraid of being laughed at:oops::)

    Anyone else out there that's like that? You like all these songs but don't really consider yourself a fan of the artist?

    Yea, there are several artists whom I don't agree with their viewpoints and actions, but I love their music.

    It only really bothers me when I go to a concert and they think it is a good idea to share their political/religious/whatever views. I didn't pay $75 to hear your opinions on the president, just play the F'ing song.

    It seems like popular music today is like that, its all about single songs and not really about the album. In older music the album as a whole was much more important. You really become a fan of an artist by listening to all their work not just a couple of songs that are the catchiest and make the radio.

    I also agree with jolly, as one of my favorites is u2 and sometimes bono can go on for too long about his views on the world and politics.
