This is depressing. Related: I am SHOCKED that it isn't going to Taylor Swift. (which would still be depressing)

I have played twice at that venue on a for-hire gig and they protested both times. According to Wikipedia, they are based out of Topeka, so I guess that venue is just convenient for them? Which means they are both hateful AND lazy. Double bonus!

I really love both artists a lot, but man we are really tossing around the phrase "musical genius" like it's nothing these days, huh?

I mean...he may have learned to play this song, but watching his hands, Diplo for sure does not know how to play the bass.

I feel reasonably confident that Enrique Iglesias is not on cocaine and other uppers.

Ya now, I never liked the Gin Blossoms back in the day because their songs always struck me as being particularly middle-of-the-road. But I recently heard "Hey Jealousy" and listened to the lyrics, which are actually surprisingly dark and depressing. I don't think they're an amazing band by any means, but I do think there's a lot more depth to their songs than I initially gave them credit for.

It is a shame that the mixer for this show continues to push Lars so high in the mix, because Lars continues to play like a fucking high schooler. Jesus.

Thank GOD! For years I have been dying to know the answer to that age old question, "How many artists does it take to totally suck the fucking life out of 'God Only Knows'?"

I should have said a SPECIFIC Miles Davis record. It's easy to pick out a Miles Davis record. Naming the song can be a more daunting tastk.

To her credit, unless you are a real jazzhead it's definitely difficult to immediately pick out a Miles Davis record. That being said, I kiiiind of feel like the fact that she thought for even a second that this could have been "Bitch's Brew" means that she has clearly never heard "Bitch's Brew"? Oh, and also, "Suf." #LOLOL

I mean, regardless of how anybody feels about the music, this has got to be the single most annoying press release/bio I have ever seen. Holy fuck.

I mean, it seems like people are voting for the song they wish would be all over the place, but in reality I have some awful news: the song of the summer is going to be the bro-reggae ridiculousness of Magic's "Rude" (which has slowly climbed the iTunes charts and currently sits at Number 1, above both "Problem" and "Fancy"). I am not endorsing this as a good song! I'm just stating a fact. It will be heard at every bar, every club, all over the radio, played by every fucking wedding band. We're doomed. If you want to vote for the BEST song of the summer, that's a different poll. If you want to vote on which song we think will be fucking everywhere, it is that steaming turd. Mark my words.

This is amazing. I find the original to be so cloying, but it's amazing how suddenly the exact same awful lyrics twist and become heartbreaking in this context. Awesome.
