    For some, it's a tribal impulse, for some it's a rebellion, for some it's their artistic sensibility, and for yet others its simply experimentation.

    But all of these impulses are pretty much in line with the roots of rock and roll. It has nothing to do with being credible, although with some it might be a confidence builder to help show remind themselves that they aren't simply one of the "drones" who work in an office. Maybe it says something about them that they need that reminder, but it doesn't invalidate it.

    I have a lot of "rock memories" which aren't based on being scared, shocked or intimidated. But frankly I also have plenty which DO have to do with that. It's a long tradition, and not necessarily a bad one, to have your foundations shook up a bit. And women aren't "supposed to be" "intimidating" or "different" in our culture. Ergo, it could be kind of a good move for her to play that card (although she seems very personable when NOT singing, and that probably helps too).

    I'm with you on this, I hate any type of facial piercings. She'd look a lot better without them IMO.

    Well for those that don't like their rock modern, hard, and dirty perhaps American Idol may be a better choice, taking into consideration the overall look and sound of the band.

    The Black Crows cover kicks major butt. It certainly puts to bed any of the notions all she can do is Kurt Cobain or Stevie Nicks. What am I talking about, those two are ALREADY polar opposites?

    I suppose people who hear the "Hit Me Baby" cut will complain as if she's somehow aping Marty, simply because he did both "Lithium" AND that song. Wait for it... the comment is coming soon from SOME smartass. Nevermind that both she and Marty are probably jointly copying Fountain of Wayne's version.

    Your right Krom, somebody will say something but who the hell cares. her fans and friends know what she is about notting else matters. no matter what happens with Dilana she will have a contract with Supernova or without them.

    "Coincidence" aside, she kicked butt opening night and THAT matters, more than her fans and friends.

    She did a great job singing the chorus of Lithium in her encore. She's #1 for now.

    I don't know about that. Having piercings doesn't make you "hard" just like wearing makeup (for men, I mean) doesn't make you fey. Kurt Cobain had no piercings (visible anyhow) and he was rougher (and better) than any of the guys in SuperNova. I'm not a fan of piercings or tattoos either, but that didn't bother me about Dilano. I just didn't think she did a good job with "Lithium." It was histrionic, not passionate.

    I thought Dilana did a great job with the song how are you going to be passionate with a song called " Lithium " it is about a person that hears voices in thier head whats passionate with that.

    So, you need to fill your face with metal to be into hard rock? I must have missed that memo.
