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.

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!

July 10, 2014 on Judas Priest Albums From Worst To Best

So, I’ve heard the stuff about Eric Church being the anti-country music country singer or country music for people who like springsteen or whatever, but if I picked up the album and liked it I wouldn’t go around telling everybody that it was one of the best country albums of the year or anything like that. Because I don’t listen to country music, so I have no frame of reference. That’s why I take offense to your addition of it to this list. Stereogum doesn’t cover mainstream country music. So you can’t just pick one country music album out of the blue and proclaim it to be the 11th best album of the first half of the year. There is no basis of comparison, so it’s addition doesn’t make any sense.

Sorry, just sayin’

First of all, Depressive Melodeath is a pretty great name for a music subgenre.
And Black Heart Rebellion rocks.

No, that’s not quite right. Blue Thunder is a stone cold classic. Smells Like Teen Spirit was the lowest common denominator song in Nirvana’s catalog. As James pointed out in his write-up, it was always a blantant Pixies homage and wasn’t the definitive Nirvana song. It was just their biggest hit. It was also the song that turned them into the AC/DC of my high school and drove me farther down the ratholes of alternative music when I was a teenager. If I could thank Kurt Cobain for anything today, it would be for that.

I’m not usually one to argue with leaving off “obvious” choices, because I think that these lists should be subjective to the authors personal whims; however, Blue Thunder is one of the greatest college rock songs of that era and I assumed that was widely known. So leaving it off of the top ten list of a band that only recorded 3 albums seems wrong in all kinds of ways.
