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

By Scott Lapatine / January 25, 2013 - 2:16 pm

This week’s Shut Up, Dude comes from lovely, almost-sunny Los Angeles, where last night we brought Merchandise to Sonos Studio. This year’s Coachella lineup was released within minutes of the band’s first song so it was a pretty buzzy evening. Are you going to Coachella? Are you so stoked for the reunited Stone Roses and Postal Service? Do you know who the Stone Roses are? Did you realize Phoenix were so popular? Do you remember when Red Hot Chili Peppers were cool? And speaking of cool, how about that bananas Knife song? That was a highlight of this week for sure. Elsewhere, we picked the 10 Best New Order Songs, chatted with Jim James, ranked the Darkthrone discography, prematurely evaluated Local Natives, compiled a gallery of Sex Pistols crafts, and awarded Album Of The Week to Toro Y Moi. Your best and worst responses to these things are below..

I’m ever so glad you brought all of us along your journey through the hills of ignorance, down the path of discovery, and finally into the deepest depths of the valley of casual dismissal. It’s been magical.

Who did Anthony Kiedis make sweet heroin-addled love to in order to attain headliner status for every single festival in the United States for the past half a decade?

Also, it’s kinda cool that many european countries wil lbroadcast Inauguration on their main national networks (not news 24/7 channels). I checked listings today, it’s sweden, Norway, Germany, Ireland, Australia, NZ and many more. I can’t understand – why? It’s not your country, it’s not your president. I know that USA is the most important country but what changes really? It’s not historical moment like it was in 2009 either.
Seems bizarre… Say no to Americanization of the world. I guess soon America will dominate not only popular music, movies and TV but all the fucking culture in the world. Stop it, European public broadcasters directors.

You shouldn’t broadcast inauguration of the president of the FOREIGN country on the NATIONAL NETWORK IN PRIME TIME. IT’S WEIRD.

POOR BOYS! Dntel and Gibbards last albums (I talk about Gibbard’s solo effort here) were poorly received and some mone yare in need. OH YEAH, THE ALBU MWAS RELEASED 10 YEARS AGO!
Genius! What a luck! We’ll play some festivals and Coachella with our dull tunes and will bath in money by the end of the summer. Hipsters will buy it.

Also: HAPPY INAUGURATION/MLK DAY, MURIKA! The greatest nation ever lived! Liberty, freedom, justice! More drone strikes! More dead Yemen kids! Hooray for coronation of the Leader of the Free World! God Bless America!

(I know, I know, so much butthuty in my post… First, I’m poor. second, I don’t live in your wonderful country, So what? Fuck all)
