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

By Amrit Singh / November 9, 2012

What a week, friends. My Bloody Valentine guaranteed a new album within the next eight weeks, Sufjan connected on a patriotic new jam, Lushlife hooked up a great video, we thought about rock operas, Depeche Mode, and Swans, and re-elected the Presiden Of The United States Of America. We keep busy. So do you, with wonderful and terrible comments on the regs. Let’s laugh at each other together:

#6  godsdog | Nov 2nd Score:15

First they listed the Pixies, and I didn’t speak out.

Then they listed Jesus Lizard, and didn’t speak out.

Then they listed The Velvet underground, and I didn’t speak out.

Then they listed Husker Du, Bob Mould and Sugar, and did NOT put a Husker Du album at the top. They also downplayed the importance of Grant Hart.

You have made an old man very sad Timothy and Elisabeth, and I don’t think we can be friends anymore.

#5  Michael Nelson | Nov 6th Score:16

In what universe is this a controversial statement? He’s plainly one of the best drummers in rock history. He may be one of the most indistinct guitarists.

I’m happy the story with max and the jpg ended well. We were all a little bit anxious about that one.

Alex Sobel | Nov 3rd Score:23

The 5 stages of having a top Stereogum comment:
1.) Pride, for having made an accomplishment.
2.) Obsession, feeling I have to continue this top comment streak
3.) Shame, for feeling proud of an internet accomplishment.
4.) Apathy, realizing that my life with a top comment isn’t any different than life without.
5.) Acceptance, that some day I will be dead.

Always maintained Dave’s a far better drummer than guitarist. As a drummer, he’s one of the best alive. Go ahead & downvote this.

THIS WEEK’S 10 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5  buzz fledderjohn | Nov 5th Score:-3

I wasn’t shoving anything down anyone’s throat, just throwing some apparently little known facts out there. Nobody was forced to read anything they didn’t want to read.

I posted many times in that thread because I was trying to carry a dialogue with others who had answered my posts.

Kevin Broydrick | Nov 2nd Score:-4

so as i listened to Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables, and remembered how fucking great it is, i decided to write about how much death grips sucks and how awesome “Holiday in Camodia” is.

Check it out if interested, and please downvote me, I like it….

Wesley Morgan Paraham | Nov 8th Score:-6

Jesus, Tom. Hyperbole much? After I listened to the Gaga version, my opinion of the song remained virtually unchanged, Gaga or otherwise. Lamar’s flow wasn’t compromised, the track wasn’t compromised, it’s all good. Maybe you’d feel better if the Gaga version had the Lamar layered vocals? That would make it sound a bit more familiar, I don’t know. Anyway, chill out.
