I rather enjoy a lot of The Killers’ and Kings of Leon’s music. Neither they, nor Foo Fighters, resemble Nickleback in the slightest. People seem to be using that as some sort of generic insult for rock bands lately. The problem is, it never applies, because the thing that is so painfully awful about Nickelback is their lyrics. Beyond that, nothing they’ve done holds a candle to Grohl’s songwriting abilities. He’s been one of the few rock artists to continue to get radio airplay for a reason; he writes good songs.

This is a great song. It got a nice build, three or four different sections – all of which are enjoyable, some great melodies and it kicks ass for the last two minutes. Haters gonna hate, particularly on the Foo Fighters at Stereogum.

I thought they were a them, not a her, or a she, but I wholeheartedly agree. They’re/she’s awesome.

Don’t buy your kids Beatle’s records? Really? Don’t be that guy, Tom. Don’t be that guy.

No he isn’t.

Fuck I thought this was going at the bottom of the comment section… whatever… here it is. :/

This could be a reply to several of the comments on this article, so I’m just going to place it here by itself and hope the right people read it (because if I post it as a reply five times I’ll just get five times the hate, and who wants that, really?).

The Black Keys sell their songs to advertisers (license them) and then charge people who want to figure out what the song is in said advertisement to buy the album or the track. Not at all the same thing as what U2 did. I think he has a strong, valid point. Many young, struggling bands have made a nice chunk of change by licensing a song, which it turn (for some of them, at least) has brought the rest of their work more attention. However, what U2 did (which I don’t hate either, for the record), was something that very few bands/artists on the planet at this time could have done. How many other band/artists are big enough for Apple to pony up supposed nine digit amounts to work with them? I don’t know, it’s a weird juxtaposition of morals and values and I’m not sure either one is right or wrong.

Meow The Jewels made their kickstarter goal today.

Disagree completely. In fact, I think what he says could be used to describe pretty much the entirety of U2′s career. They just badly misjudged how the public was going to accept this move. Probably the first bad move they’ve made since the PopMart tour (and that was still a lot of fun).
