It’s scary to think that there are men who will go their entire lives having gotten away with abuse, and nobody ever finds out. Hopefully this and other recent cases will open the floodgates and allow for more women to speak out against their abusers.

I went to school with a lot of “cool, hip, buddy-buddy, in-the-know” guys EXACTLY like Ghomeshi and they had similar allegations leveled against them, but nothing ever happened because of their reputation, inaction and murky details.

It would be comforting (IF the rumours about them were indeed true) to see them brought to justice instead of letting them live life unscathed while the women they hurt continue to live with that burden.

I just burst out laughing because this is actually pretty good.

I never ever ever imagined that a shock rocker (whom I never liked) would, twenty years into his career, release a relevant-sounding, enjoyable song.

World be cray.

They’re super huge here in Toronto, basically an institution. I know a lot of people who are “SO INTO” Foos, and count them as their favorite band. Most of them girls actually.

Ha ha ha he sounds like a weird robot and very out of place amongst the others.

Also good contribution, Dave Grohl.

I like the production and instrumentation, but the major key chorus is too 80s ballad for my taste. It’s like The Killers’ “Shot at the Night” and Twin Shadow’s “To The Top”. Why is everyone suddenly taking musical cues from Steve Winwood and Howard Jones??

“In other Kozelek news, late last year—the pre-Benji days of December 2013—it was announced that Kozelek would release an album of Christmas standards called Sings Christmas Carols. The release date has been moved up from November 10 to November 4. The tracklist has now changed slightly.”

That Reckless-Bryan Adams-Ryan Adams birthday triangle just blew my mind.


Song is insipid, absolutely dreadful. 4 chord EZ rock pap.

Sixteen Stone was brill though.

Sounds like Foo Fighters doing a Replacements cover, but Dave Grohl has a sore throat.
