Just as some of the minor poetasters of the 17th century would be utterly forgotten today if they had not been fortunate enough to be mocked in Pope’s Dunciad, some of the bands of the late 20th century, including many that were and are admired by critics or the general public or both, will only be remembered in a century or two because they were fortunate enough to be mocked by Beavis and Butt-Head.

  1. Your post brought to mind the line

    “Shadwell never deviates to sense”

    Turns out it’s from Dryden’s “Mac Flecknoe” rather than the
    “Dunciad”.

    The post say much about the state of current “culture”.

  2. Amendment: Not Beavis and Butthead… try “remembered in a Weird Al Yankovitch song”…that is far more likely.
