The 16th volume of the American Now series wraps up Ocean Avenue - Various - Now Thats What I Call Music! 16 chart hits from the tail end of and the first half of It's unnecessarily evenhanded with the genres, conducting a form of affirmative action with the rock songs, none of which deserve to be remembered after you've heard them.
And then there's Hoobastank 's mewling "The Reason," in which that group's lead singer The Chequers - Undecided Love on affectations that are less convincing than that of favorite rock-against-pop pin cushion Clay Aiken. Hoobastank 's singer may want to consider, after all his published distaste for corporately processed talent, that Aiken has indirectly bankrolled at least a couple of his brothers in arms.
Tacked at the end, Los Lonely Boys ' "Heaven" and Gretchen Wilson 's "Redneck Woman" seem particularly out of place, having little to do with the interests of the young audience that the Now series has always been marketed toward.
