One Direction: The Wrong Direction

I've heard and noticed lately that there's a band that's apparently really popular called "One Direction".  I've never heard of them, but I decided to check them out.

Upon first glance, they are a boy band that obviously want to be the next NSYNC or Backstreet Boys or something.

And that's exactly what they are.

I decided to listen to their song "What Makes You Beautiful", and I was so shocked by the complete lack of talent.  I'm not one hundred percent, but I'm pretty sure none of them actually play an instrument.  They just stand around and sing.  How bland.  It's not even like one or two of them have an extraordinary voice, either.  The all-male quintet is probably just relying on looks for fame.  Non-existent looks that is.

I can't even fathom what makes them popular at all.  They have no talent, they aren't attractive, and they don't even seem to even put that much thought into their lyrics or music video ideas.  In the video all they do is hang out on the beach and flip their hair.  Even worse, they pull the cliche "point to the camera and sing a passionate line" multiple times.

If this is the future of music, I want to live in the past
