American Idol is indeed a pop culture juggernaut. In its sixth season, it introduced a songwriting competition. Do any of the vocalists produced have any cultural worth? In other words, will any one care about or listen to their music fifty years from now? Those same questions are applied in this book to the new songwriting competition. Were there any songs submitted that were worthy additions to the human enterprise? Cultural critic and experimental critical thinking expert joobee boundaryjumper, writer-in-residence for the Institute for the Advancement of Humanity, will take on the twenty songs that were finalists in the competition and determine whether they have any cultural worth or are merely throwaway noise.
