Happy to see a great band like the Mekons get represented here. But seriously, where is a Go-Betweens list? And can the Bracy’s write it, please?
Except that all of these articles have been the most commented on for like the last week on Stereogum. So whether we like it or not, they’re really just giving the people what they want.
I mean, god damn Kozelek! How did you write that?
Isn’t about time that we drop this silly story and turn our attention back to the fact that the War on Drugs just released an album to make rock fans rejoice (and one of the best of the year), and that Carissa might just be one of the greatest songs ever written?
Actually, the Replacements do this way better than Kiss did.
Hey Bryan, I accidentally downvoted you. Sorry bout that! I wanted to respond to you about Drown. This band meant so much to me when I was a teenager. Siamese Dream was the soundtrack to my first real relationship.But Drown! Oh man, that riff…
Sorry, but if not liking the stupidest popular rock band of all time makes me a member of the “jaded elite”, than so be it.
Have to say, I’m somewhat disappointed that this article has gotten buried so far down your news feed and no one seems to be reading it. I’ve been a big Go-Betweens fan for years. Any one who like the Smiths or R.E.M needs to check them out.
Hey Stereogum, how about an albums ranking, or top ten songs to introduce people?
Love this. Why does it feel like Ryan Adams does other people’s songs better than he does his own?
Nice! This band is criminally under-appreciated!
