Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

By Scott Lapatine / July 20, 2012

This week we heard new tracks from the xx, Kendrick Lamar, and Menomena. We watched new videos from Jack White, The-Dream, and Lana Del Rey. We celebrated the anniversaries of Appetite For Destruction, Dirty, and Spotify. But the big news was Coachella’s expansion to THE SEA. Are you going on the S.S. Coachella? I’ve never seen Pulp, and I’ve never been on a cruise, so it looks tempting. Plus, it’s gonna be the first Coachella with WIFI, probably. Should we all go? Stereogum meet-up in Jamaica? While you decide, enjoy these highest and lowest rated comments of the past 7 days.

Not to rain on your parade.. But the album cover is essentially a negative of their first album cover, except the x is now filled with the colors from that video above.

People still care about this band? I liked them when they were Paul Simon’s backing band on “Graceland”, but after that it just got old.

Why would a skeleton bother trying to smoke if s/he lacks all of the parts necessary to enjoy a cigarette?
