I’m not claiming that you were implying otherwise, but someone’s got to say this:

(1) There is no inherent relationship between the simplicity/complexity of a song and its value.

(2) The song is overplayed, especially by beginning guitarists, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s awesome.

That kind of language seems more likely to alienate ordinary people and delegitimize your position in their eyes—which is cool and all when it comes to art, but counterproductive when it comes to social reform.

It’s about time someone addressed the notorious pro-war-on-drugs faction of the Stereogum community.

What’s with all these lyric videos lately? When/how/why did they become so prevalent?

My uncle said similar things…
