John Mayer Is Full of Crap
Something about John Mayer just gets under Rocks Off's skin. We'll admit there was a time he made us believe our body was a wonderland, and yes, we've even wanted to "run through the halls of our high school and scream at the top of our lungs." But no more. The quiet little guitar player we once thought Mayer was is no more, and in his place is a narcissistic lothario. The latest incident of immense ridicule came - big surprise - via Twitter. "Listening to the hits channel on Sirius. I will reserve criticism but say that every ninth year of a decade really brings the junk," he tweeted. "How are some of these bands that are big this year not exactly like Warrant was in '89? Watch your back for the next Cobain in '12." Warrant? That's the best you've got, John? Now, it's safe to say, it's on.1979
