Bingo. I think it's lame how many high profile artists these days have to depend on reappropriating someone else's art to make their own.

Accuradio! I haven't used that in ages but it was the best internet radio around about 10-13 years ago. I actually discovered Bloc Party, Broken Social Scene and more of favs from that time from Accuradio.

April 29, 2015 on Hidden Braille Message Reveals Full Title Of Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly
"They grew up in and came out of the brute strength of Long Island hardcore." 'The closest that Brand New ever came to the pop-punk that they would long be associated with was on Your Favorite Weapon." "They were sending up the whole scene with a knowing, winking nod, but no one really picked up on that at first." James, Thanks for the list. Brand New is a solid band whose sound matured well beyond what many people would give them credit for. A lot of great tunes. But, dude...you're clearly in some kind of pop-punk/emo denial. Your Favorite Weapon wasn't the "closest" they got to pop-punk, it was basically full-on bubble gum pop-punk. And that's OK. It may be pretty embarrassing stuff now, but they built on that, grew up, and accomplished great things like The Devil and God, so be it. Do you know what Long Island hardcore sounds like? You think their early stuff comes close to VoD, Kill Your Idols, or Glassjaw? You're kidding yourself. They may have loved listening to L.I. hardcore and WANTED to sound like that, but they didn't. But that's OK...because they eventually had their own thing going for them, and we have to give them credit for that. But "winking" at pop-punk/emo? Sounds more like a defense mechanism for realizing they became associated with an easily-digested, derivative pop genre that wasn't cool to anyone older than 15...they were associated with it because they were it. It's not like the press had some conspiracy against them. Taking Back Sunday was another Long Island band in a similar situation, fighting to be taken more seriously after their initial impression. Best, Chreezy

I'm almost positive the song "Delusional Skank" is about her.

October 14, 2014 on Most Of Siamese Dream Is About Courtney Love, Says Courtney Love
Same here. It sounds like a thousand other late 70s/80's inspired guitar rock revival acts and there's not much about this tune that stands out from the pack.

After this kind of talk, "he’s working on Madonna’s follow-up to 2012′s MDNA" might soon mean "he WAS working..."

I wasn't referring to that quote. But there are plenty others, including the rant I personally experienced at a Summer Jam show years ago. http://www.nme.com/news/lauryn-hill/71134

It's because in real life, she has become quite pitchy. That isn't a play on words, I mean she's slightly out of tune for real.

I think Talib is right. I also think that while it's true that Lauren doesn't "owe" fans anything musically speaking, it reasonable to say that fans have a right to be turned off by the race hate that she spews.
