From a great article on The New Republic you probably can’t read for free:

MySpace fills most of the space on its music pages with the work of awful bands, hundreds of thousands of them, and trolling among them provides a kind of perverse entertainment. The music is searchable by five criteria: band name, band bio, band members, influences, and “sounds like.” After an hour or so of using the search mode to find something worth the effort, I got punchy and, after the words “sounds like,” typed “shit.” Pages for more than three hundred bands popped up, and the first five, I can attest, were well categorized.
