Bob Marley
Mildly annoying Slate article here on Bob Marley and how suburban white college students have ruined his legacy. This article was written by one Field Maloney, a Princeton grad who would know! His point: Bob Marley is more than his greatest hits "Legend" and middle-class white kids can never understand his work the way he meant for it to be heard. So? Has that really ever been a requirement to listen to something?

Unless Maloney is just making fun of the white kids with dreadlocks playing hacky sack and listening to Buffalo Soldier. Then I'm with him on that.
