Stop Crying!

RECEIVED Tue., July 19, 2005

Dear Editor,
    To the individuals who wrote angry letters about the "99 Bands" [Music, July 8]: Please try to make your frustration over the exclusion of your bands less transparent. It only serves to qualify you as bitter attention-whores. I'm in a band from Austin that has played on three continents and the Chronicle hasn't mentioned us a single time in our near-decade of existence. I recommend that you either learn to enjoy your bands for what they are, not for the attention you hope to gain. Or you could form bands that are actually good. Either way, stop crying.
