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

Scott Lapatine | April 6, 2012 - 2:26 pm

It’s Good Friday and Passover, but it’s also regular Friday, which means it’s time to look at the highest and lowest rated comments of the past 7 days. Early this week was sort of slow for comments, but we made up for it with blog posts about Soundgarden and Kurt Cobain. 1994 4eva. Speaking of 1994, did you see Edward Droste’s non-fight with the Toadies about “Possum Kingdom”?

Ed is too nice. I was really hoping that would turn into a Where’s The Beef?. Hopefully Dave Longstreth will dis Crash Test Dummies next week. Until then, we have your insults to each other to enjoy…

I will take the stark realism of Damian’s hairy tits over the digitally enhanced tits of Katy Perry any day of the week.

Greg Messina | Apr 5th Score:23

He’d be considered washed up in 2012, and everyone would have some sort of smug comments towards any type of new material he’d put out, if he hadn’t already become a complete shut-in. Thats how we treat most of our aging rock stars, at least.

“What Would Kurt Cobain Be Up To In 2012?” is just a polite way of asking “How good would the world be if the Foo Fighters never existed?”

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

just ’cause Longstreth paid tribute to one of the best, most honored albums of the ’80’s, “Damaged,” doesn’t mean he gets a free pass for the rest of his career with putting out this incoherent garbage. Dave, we thought the r&B thing was an ironic passing comment from an immature bedroom artist about the music industry that would soon mature into a respectable, unique form of your own. not campy, ’90’s r&b production forever. and honestly, the press overrated Bitte Orca because you triggered and prefigured a nostalgia bomb for Black Flag and other ’80’s hardcore we are still in the midst of. 9 half baked songs does not a follow up to “Rise Above” make. though some are great musically, lyrically, they’re terrible. “Swing Lo Magellan” sort of sounds like a racist album title if you ask me. how he goes from thinking he can hijack “Damaged,” which is an album about demanding freedom basically and frustration at society’s confinement, to putting out this album that connects an African American slave song to a Portuguese explorer sort of tells you something anti-intellectual and deceptive about Longstreth. he wants to cash in on conflict, IMHO, conflicted tastes within the indie community and conflicting themes that don’t coherently go together.

He’d settle his differences with Katy Perry inside Hell in a Cell, I’m sure.
