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

Wow we ran so many interesting features from staff and contributors this week. What a great way to go out before we die in a Doritos fire at SXSW. Tom Breihan wrote about Biggie Smalls, Don Q, and Laura Marling. Lindsey Rhoades went long on Arthur Russell and Xiu Xiu. Stephen Deusner chatted with Aimee Mann. Chris DeVille interviewed Alex Lahey and reflected on Future and Sound Of Silver. In other notable album anniversaries, Gabriela Tully Claymore celebrated The Velvet Underground & Nico, Ryan Leas ranked The Joshua Tree, and Austin Brown revisited Neon Bible. Nate Patrin checked in on Michael McDonald’s reputation. And more! But start with those and lemme know if you find any typos.

See also: Beach House, Real Estate, The National. Bands whose consistency is comforting.

This song is unsurprisingly awesome. It would fit anywhere on Helplessness Blues but that’s okay with me.

That’s the oldest trick in “I’m down with the gays” book, and I’m not buying it. Also, Migos makes trash music; I’m a Migosphobic dog!

New Fleet Foxes is very fleet and foxy.

Still the most slept-on Arcade Fire album (if there is such a thing) and my personal favorite.

That run of songs from “(Antichrist)” through “My Body is a Cage” is a closing run all-timer.

Jesus, man. Nobody cares who you find attractive. Please shut up about it.

The intersection of the sets of men who view Taylor as their “Aryan goddess” and men who would purchase VR porn equipment is quite large

This comment made it the entire week without anyone fucking the score up. Congrats to anyone battling their poor impulse control all week, I know it was tough. And congrats to d-brad on another +6 well earned.

Not to be simplistic about it, but Swift also rhymes with Rift.

Yeah, I don’t get it, I guess because she’s popular. She’s also extremely unattractive though.

Yes, very much so. I also think she’s ugly AF sans all that I know about her shitty personality. She’s a 2×4 with a blonde wig on. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; downvote away, you fucks!

So all it takes to be a legend is 2 barely tolerable albums that are recorded by a motherfucker too hungry to take the big mac outta his mouth before rapping, and getting shot. lmfao, you fuckin dickriders will say whoever you’re told to is the best lmfao. No one even talks about biggie other than on shit like this, yet he’s a lasting force… right lmfao
