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

By Scott Lapatine / January 24, 2014 - 5:01 pm

Who’s excited about the Grammys? Maybe excited isn’t the right word. Who’s aware the Grammys happen this Sunday? Stereogum will be watching and if you are too you should head here for our annual Comment Party and Drinking Game. What else are you gonna watch, wrestling? Read a book? Chris broke down the nominees in the Week In Pop, incurring the wrath of Sara Bareilles fans (Bareillesheads I think they’re called). You know who was never nominated for a Grammy? The Grateful Dead. I know that because I just googled “Grateful Dead Grammy nominations.” (And you guys are gonna love this… The page I got also says “Claim to fame: Single ‘Touch of Grey.'” Remember the Dead? That one-hit-wonder from the ‘80s?) Learn more about “Touch Of Grey” and the Grateful Dead’s very best songs here after you check out this week’s best and worst comments below.

News like this just make me realize: I have no use for streaming services. I think I have a Pandora account somewhere that I haven’t logged into for years, I sometimes will pull up Spotify if I’m looking up something really quick and I registered a name for this new contraption, but old dude me is always going to go to my bedroom where the stereo system and turntable are and pop in a CD, cassette or LP. The most digital I get is loading up my iPod with albums while I’m out, but eff whatever thinks its smart enough to choose what I should I listen to.

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5 lieutenant wine | Jan 22nd Score:-7

I don’t care how many glowing (and rather transparent) reviews this gets, any album with a song titled “FUCKMYLIFE666″ will never be worth my time.

Adam Gelatt | Jan 23rd Score:-8

I usually forget that this ultra-pc reddit-ethic meme spouting neckbeard of a website still exists, but I just came here to say damn, this record is as bland as bland gets. AM! could’ve made a huge and powerful statement as the first “relatively” big band with a trans singer, but nah, they’re just gonna write the same shitty pop-punk album they’ve been recording since New Wave.

I live in the remote nation of Canada. What’s “streaming music”, and this Spotify thing?
