Rank the top 10 bands/singers to have played at Nats Park. I referenced Sal's Famous Pizzeria from Do the Right Thing because Nats Park has only hosted rock, country, and white pop acts (pre-game, post-game, special events...). I'm not saying that the Lerner family is racist, just that they don't like booking rap, R&B, or black pop acts.

Feel free to include bands booked this year since they had some good ones coming.

1) Motley Crue
2) Guns and Roses
3) Elton John
4) Eagles
5) Joan Jett
6) Third Eye Blind
7) Smashing Pumpkins
8) Dead cover band from 2019 (not sure of the name)
9) Billy Idol
10) Weezer

I don't like rap either. Somebody left the c off the front.

Great, so which of the Nats Park bands do you rate the highest? There have been a ton of Country acts that I left off my list, I prefer 70's Country to anything more recent.

My concert going days are long over so I have no horse in the game.

There are promoters across the country who book "Black" artists only, which is fine. So The Nats can book whoever they want. And if they keep booking these types of acts and it upsets the usual cast of bedwetters, I'm all for it.

Funny thing is that I don't see anyone paying attention except me. But watch one of these draft picks have made a comment on Twitter when they were 15 that angers the lib's tender sensibilities and it will be a major blow up tomorrow. Not even kidding, I guarantee that there are guys scrolling through five years of social media history hoping to be the one who can shame the new kid.

I'm sure there are. These little Nazi wannabes will stop at nothing to destroy as many people as possible.

I've always rather liked the Eagles.

15? They'll go back to his pre-teens if they have to.

Btw, The Eagles would be off any list I'd make. Love their music but Henley is a loudmouthed a-hole. In their peak during the 70's, Felder was forced out, Meisner got fed up with the egos and quit, and Leadon quit and never really got into the specifics of why -- he probably took the high road. Henley had his hand in the first 2 of those things. His politics and ego I can do without. He testified recently attacking "Big Tech", whining that artists make precious little in the digital world. Welcome to reality, pal. You've put out some really sh!tty solo albums and no one oughtta part with their hard earned money to hear that crap.

Wait, you're saying that Building the Perfect Beast was crap? Yeah, his solo stuff sucked but the Eagles were great. As far as being an a-hole, they had the fame, the cash, and the gash, of course they turned into self indulgent a-holes.

I had both of their Greatest Hits albums in the 80s, the country one and the rock one, both from good old Columbia House Records and tapes. I listened to them so much as a kid that I can hardly stand them as an adult.

I said "some" not "all" of his solo stuff. The songs from BTPB that I've heard had alot of compressed drum machines and blaring synths, which aint my bag. Personal tastes and all that. I like Springsteen too, but sick of douchebags like him and Don Henley charging $100+ for a concert ticket to then give fans political lectures at the gig. Just get over yourself and play your music. If not no problem I can pocket the cash and listen to that Lefty crap for Free on MSNBC, oh yeah aint gonna do that either.

Big Tech is a problem, and artists could get a better deal.

After the game tonight the Washington Nationals displayed the message "Justice Equality Now". This is the team that only hires white bands and performers to play at the ballpark.

The club hires acts that they believe their customers are attracted to. Race has nothing to do with it. It's a non-topic imho.

48 police officers were killed LY due to felonious, intentional acts, and that annual # is probably going to rise. When a black police officer gets hunted and shot and killed, than let me see all of the pro athletes line up and demonstrate about that. Until that happens, my Give A Sh!t button about these whiny millionaire clowns aint workin.

On your first point, I agree that the team hires acts that are popular with their existing fan base, but at some point in 15 years of Lerner ownership they could have hired a band/performer to try to expand their audience. In this case I thought that they are being hypocritical supporting the BLM movement.

On your second point, I completely agree, people have lost all sense of perspective. Bad cops need to be prosecuted but burning down the businesses that have invested in the inner cities is not the way to get the change they want.

Understand what you're saying about their hypocrisy, but they're in a tough spot: if they did not put that scoreboard post up (or something else to that effect), the players would whine that the L's did not nothing to support the kid in Wisc. And then, the lefties at the WP would swoop in and jump all over them, too. Last thing they prob want is a damn riot at the Park by hoodlums. To say that I'm sick and tired of getting lectured to by the media, players, and now The Nats is an understatement,

They've been doing that for a long time. Look up Al Sharpton and Freddie's Fashion Mart.
