We often talk of bands changing our life, and usually mean it in a positive, or meaningful, open-your-mind type of way.
But what about the opposite? Occasionally I wonder if I bought into The Smiths’ I’m-lonely-and-unloved aesthetic a bit too enthusiastically, but that just made me a bit of nobhead rather than effecting any profound alteration. Perhaps it’s simply impossible for a band to change your life for the worst? Maybe bands don’t *really* change your life at all?
