The guys in the Black Keys realize they are a mainstream arena act right? Not that there is anything wrong with that but they need to get the fuck off their high horse.

It’s like when you have a closet of old hats you love and one day you open the closet and the old hats are all still in there, but in front of those old hats are a bunch of new hats you didn’t buy but they’re fine hats and you wear them too, but where are the old hats, oh there they are. In the back.

#2 airlifted | Jun 22nd Score:42

Really sick of misleading and completely false headlines like this one. He didn’t call Van Halen “Fucking Retarded”. He called the idea of them (or any older band) replacing an original member with a 20 year old “fucking retarded”. Most people don’t click and actually read the context.

THIS WEEK’S EDITOR’S CHOICE (SCOTT)

Tim Curtin | Jun 28th Score:5

couldn’t agree more that ‘Would?’ is (of course arguably) their best song. even on their unplugged session it achieves that level of emotion as on the album cut.

State of Love and Trust…how did this song not make it on to a record? But PJ has always been pretty stacked with B-sides.

oh and if you guys are PJ and/or Cameron Crowe fans I beseech you to watch PJ20…incredibly insightful, funny, tragic, glorious rock music throughout.

THIS WEEK’S EDITOR’S CHOICE (AMRIT)

JaggerT | Jun 28th Score:0

And it’s supposed to be 104 here this weekend/4th of July, so I’m going to hole up in a Cold Cave, eat some Clams Casino, and hope an Ice Choir will provide to me the Cat Power to Slowdance with my lady. If the situation Micachu and the Shapes up well, I may offer my Purity Ring in the hopes she’ll be a Yeasayer and we can share some Physical Therapy if you know what I mean.

I’m sorry.
