At the end of the day, Noel can always look in the mirror and say, "at least I didn't write Little James".

People complaining about this sounding weird as if Homme isn't half of Eagles of Death Metal.

June 15, 2017 on Queens Of The Stone Age – “The Way You Used To Do”
It was an Album of the Week. It does sort of seem like everyone has disavowed it.

When I listened to it, which in fairness was before all the shit hit the fan, it was a pretty good album.

I hate to ask this, and I'm sure I'll get downvoted for it, but since it was chosen for Album of the Week, I feel it's worth asking. How are you guys approaching PWR BTTM's "Pageant"?

This is an unfortunate symptom of the shitty way we treat addiction in this country. People get shamed for it, and when their back is against the wall, and their judgement's impaired, it's not a big step to do something permanent to yourself. The fact that celebrities with significantly more resources than any of us will ever have die from this, is more proof that it's much worse than "we can't afford it".

I must have read the headline three times before I realized what it was saying.

I'd rank Evanescence higher than Godsmack simply b/c Amy Lee's got some pipes.

The thing that puts the Placebo cover over the top for me is the video. I'm always happy to see LGBTQ representation, but seeing it done all the way back in 2003 just blows my mind.

Man, I am seriously getting downvoted for that. I still contend it was weird, and even weirder for her to write about.

I haven't watched the show, but I have seen a particularly graphic gif of a girl committing suicide in a bathtub. As someone who has actually done that before, it was a little bit much.

One particularly problematic thing they left off about Dunham: in her memoir, she kinda/sorta admits to molesting her little sister.

As much as I enjoy HDTGM, I think We Hate Movies is better.

Gotta be honest. I'm super cynical, and pessimistic about everything. But I'm looking forward to this.

If you told me that an Arca video would be the most homoerotic video on a day when a new PWR BTTM drops, I would've said you were crazy. This is not a criticism.

It's about time Vinny Price dropped another joint. Pretty sure this is first since his collab in '90 with Eddie Scissors.

I scrolled to the comments to see if there were people being shitty about her weight, and you did not disappoint.

I feel the same way everytime Earl drops an album. "Yeah, this is really hot, but do you want to talk about it?"

Honestly, I hadn't heard of this guy until his recent dust-up with NME, but between that and this, I'm plenty intrigued.

Someone help me out with why "he played with the Grateful Dead" would be an effective argument against someone being racist?

Personally, I feel that people overreact when someone acknowledges that something they enjoy has some troubling aspects. I'm a huge fan of Mystery Science Theater (as my icon attests) but they do, far too often for my taste, fall back on old homophobic and transphobic material. But you can acknowledge these problems without swearing off the things you love. Nobody is saying "Back to the Future is a racist movie, and nobody should watch it".

For real. I'm not saying that the makers of Back to the Future were thinking "YEAH FUCK CHUCK BERRY". It's very clearly just meant as a joke. But there are problematic aspects of it that are pretty obvious, and I'm genuinely surprised I'm being downvoted for it.
