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

By Scott Lapatine / February 15, 2013 - 6:11 pm

We kicked off this week with a comment party for the Grammys, a pretty tame ceremony from which we managed to find 10 least boring moments. We heard new songs from Tyler, The Creator, the Postal Service, and the Strokes. We ranked the Who’s discography and Tegan And Sara’s 10 best songs. We gave Pissed Jeans Album Of The Week. And we deconstructed villainizing musicians. Here are the best and worst things you had to say about it all.

THIS WEEK’S 10 HIGHEST RATED COMMENTS

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5 Michael_ | Feb 11th Score:-21

Another non-boring thing (at least in the comment party and Twitter) was when people discovered Lena Dunhum is dating one of the guys from fun.

Because god forbid some dude from fun. is hitting it with the least attractive cast member of Girls, as if she was at the top of your list of dream girls.

Corky Anderson | Feb 12th Score:-41

At the very least, the advertising for their album is straightforward. They ARE bankrupt-of any novel musical invention. Unless you’re urban outfitters, the gap or other forms of overpriced and overstocked commerce departments that likes cheeky wallpaper harmless safe music running in in it’s echo chamber changing stalls mindlessly, well, then, this buds for you! This band should have gone away after 1991 or liztomania. Sorry but i’m new to the board and i just dont get the love for so many so called “indie” buzz bands. These guys have sold millions of records for basically the same formula and they are running out of ideas. Land your creative helicopter down at the gap phoenix, cause youre in the sky, fuels running low and you might as well crash where you feel welcomed $$$

I wasn’t aware I was not supposed to like Mumford? Oh well, seeing them in Brooklyn (of all places next week). They write much, much better songs than those dorks in Wavves, Girls, etc.

I was confused for a bit when I heard the Black Keys and it wasn’t in a commercial.
