John Lennon could be an asshole, but he wasn't a troll. Lydon has been nothing but a professional troll for 30 years. The setting for this interview is 100% on-point, because he is punk rock Piers Morgan.

March 23, 2017 on Diet Cig – “Link In Bio”
To be fair, Godsmack's is actually called IV, rather than just referred to that way. I had a buddy who was a Zeppelin die-hard who insisted on calling Led Zeppelin's fourth album Zoso.

Well, I'm not god (yet), but I'd guess that the fact that you read two articles about this and then felt compelled to comment is a pretty decent indication of the item's newsworthiness.

No one is denying Chuck's legacy. But like many geniuses, Chuck could be an asshole. And his habit of dismissing the entirety of rock and roll history as a Chuck Berry rip-off was a prominent example of that. First off, Chuck had his share of influences, from T-Bone Walker to Charlie Christian. Also, considering how he treated Johnnie Johnson, it was always a bit rich for Chuck to talk about how other people ripped him off.

Usually, I'd agree with you, but it's pretty clear that Urban Outfitters isn't trying to cash in with people who appreciate Riverside County geographic features. This is lazy work by Urban Outfitters and a pretty clear-cut example of why trademark laws exist.

Only available to stream on her new platform? Maybe. But no way is she going to pass completely on physical sales. Especially since a large portion of her audience probably still buys music exclusively from Target.

If Depeche Mode flirted with crypto-reactionary imagery, mid-90s Morrissey gave fascism a hand job behind the school gym, and promised to meet up with them later.

Hey, I lived in Rockville for a few years when I was a kid. I'm Irish Catholic though. My elementary school was named Flower Valley, which is pretty hilarious in retrospect.

I'll go ahead and get the preemptive "It's not Spoon because they got a Premature Evaluation" comment out of the way. I'll also I submit the less popular, more subjective, preemptive "It's not Real Estate because they're boring" comment, as well. I could be wrong, but "gentle and twinkling" = "I've heard the album."

If you have to stereotype people, stick to people who deserve it. Like people from Boston or people from SoCal.

Everybody Works is my favorite indie rock album since at least Modern Vampires of the City. Part of that may be that it tick's of all of the subjective "what I'm digging at the moment" boxes, but it's also just a remarkable album.

Not all people from Miami love Gloria Estefan, bloc. That's like assuming that all people from NorCal love the Grateful Dead.

Marco Rubio is really fucking dumb. I don't mean that as hyper-partisan name-calling. Well, I guess I do, but I mostly mean that he's conventionally dumb as well. It's indicative of so much that he was once considered the GOP's version of Obama. As my favorite dead presidential Twitter account once put it http://pasteboard.co/JmN7Olhxa.png

This doesn't feel like a single. It feels like the closer of an A-side, or even a penultimate track. And is it just me, or does this sound a little like that Dispatch song, "The General."

Dirty Projectors... (kidding) In all seriousness, I haven't listened to it enough to call it great, but I do really like that Roc Marciano record. (I certainly think it's better than either Future record.)

Yeah, because dumbasses driving around with unlicensed firearms could never possibly pose a threat to anyone. Also, California allows ex-felons and people on probation to vote.
