THIS WEEK’S 10 HIGHEST RATED COMMENTS

Ian Benson | May 7th Score:26

It’s nice to see that Animal Collective is as excited for the Dark Knight Rises as I am.

What is with the snarky, judgemental, bro-like tone of this report? This is an amazingly brave move by a singer in a very macho, male-oriented scene and industry, and its treated like some sort of WTF moment. Honestly, the only thing you take away from this is that you hope her voice doesn’t change? Please show some respect to this brave person. “She, I guess.” “So: Good her, I guess?” What do you mean “you guess?” I expected more from this website.

“This is apparently a real thing” “Good for her? I guess?”

I’m pretty disappointed by the tone of this article. I’m very appreciative of Mr/Mrs Gabel’s courage. Sometime in the future, this will be as prevalent as the current gay-rights issue and the historic women’s rights issue.

#6 raptor jesus | May 4th Score:28

At least on the Foster the People fail, the contestants just shrugged.

Just the idea of LMFAO being an answer to ANYTHING on Jeopardy! is painful.

“This group is the most hated group in the entire World.”

“What is LMFAO?”

“No, I’m sorry, the answer is Nazis…. Nazis.”

That’s not an example of hyperbole. I think the literary device you utilized is commonly referred to as “bullshit”.

Let explain to you how this works Andrew, because you clearly have no idea.

One, none of us know your aunt, so we’re not going to go around making jokes about her dying when she does.

Two, IF we did. The joke would be something relevant to the person and there life. Something everyone knows about. Like for example, Let’s say your aunt loved playing golf but she sucked at it. I might say “Well, looks like Jesus is going to watch himself on the golf course now that Andrew’s aunt is in the group behind him.”

What you did, not only was it not funny, but it was a sarcastic jab that had nothing really to do with Adam or the Beastie Boys. You just used his death to take a shot at Coachella.

So, you see, your dickish comment and your general inability to understand why it was dickish is why everyone hates you here.

Andrew Schneider | May 4th Score:-44

I guess I’ll just take my morbid humor back to the metal blogs where news death is still awesome and hilarious. Indie blogs are sooooo puss.

OK, so when my aunt dies from her brain tumor next week, I’ll let everyone on stereogum here know so no one tries to make funny comments for a while. This is the internet, pretty sure that’s exactly where you are supposed to be funny about terrible things. Yes it sucks he died, sorry everyone. I’ll shut up now.
