Completely off the topic of writing

Okay, so I have to say this because it's bugging me...what is up with all of these new musicians who feel that they need to state their name at the beginning of their song? Is it because they are afraid that no one will know who they are if they don't include their name? Or maybe, they just have that big of an ego that they have to have the world sing their name?

I have Sirius XM and I listen to Hits 1 on 2, channel 3 or 10 (can't remember what the names of channel 3 and 10 are for the moment), and also listen to the 80s, 90s, Alt Nation, Rewind, etc. (love me some old punk and alt music). Channels 2 and 3 play mostly the same stuff, and 10 plays songs from the 2000s. But what is the phenom of singers having their name in the song lyrics. And why does this bug me so much?

Do you notice this or is it just me?
