Find Me On:
I did slightly, in the background/musical section, but a lot of it was about the counter culture and riot grrrl.
Just imagine what they’d give Ringo Starr’s “paintings.” (http://www.ringostarrart.com/starr_artwork.htm for those who hate their eyes.)
Of course, we know Rolling Stone and NME would eat it up.
Thanks, I’ll make sure to list “caused confusion among radio listeners” as one of grunge’s effects on society. :)
I had an interesting internal debate this week about whether or not certain bands were grunge (since I’m writing my term paper on the grunge era) and figured I’d get the ‘gum’s opinion on who’s grunge and who isn’t. I know there’s a lot of debate about whether some “grunge” artists were actually grunge; in fact, pretty much everyone labeled under that category save L7, Screaming Trees, Hole, Mudhoney, Nirvana, and maybe a few others. could have a case for being a different genre. Alice in Chains and Soundgarden could be called metal/hard rock, Pearl Jam could be arena rock I guess, Smashing Pumpkins are more alternative/shoegaze-y. I dunno, I just thought I’d hear what other people had to say and this was the only place I could think of starting a discussion.
Not a huge Bon Iver fan, actually. I don’t necessarily think people will stop at Bon Iver, to be honest. It’s like a gateway/introduction to other artists, if you get what I’m saying.
iTunes says the penultimate track on the album is over seven minutes long, so I think you may get your wish!
People who are upset that it sounds like Bon Iver – what, do you want another Mylo Xyloto instead? If a quote-end-quote “indie” artist is influencing a more pop-based artist, isn’t that a good thing for direction of the music industry as a whole? Don’t we want more differentiation in pop music? Last I checked, one of pop’s biggest problems was redundancy. If some Coldplay fan out there hears this track and it acts as a sort of gateway to Bon Iver and other similar artists, giving our favorite musicians more exposure and more rewards for their art, that’s a good thing, right?
Live Through This, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, Diary, Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged, The Downward Spiral, and Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain.
Also, Emergency & I turns 15, Funeral turns 10, College Dropout turns 10, and The Smiths turns 30.
Yeah, that’s what I was trying to get at when talking about the immaturity thing. I worded it pretty poorly, though, my bad.
You’re putting way too much thought into this. It’s a fun nickname for a fun band in a headline for a casual news story on a music blog.
And also, ‘”14 yr old girls/20 yr old gays’”? You’re seriously going to say that, in this day and age, when completely unprovoked? Basically what you’re saying is that all gay people are a) feminine (which is totally false) and b) immature to the point where they act middle schoolers when they’re well passed from high school (also completely untrue). You’re also generalizing/stereotyping two whole groups of people, so, yeah.
God what an ending.
THERE IS JUSTICE IN THIS WORLD
So it’s gotta be Daft Punk or Macklemore for AOTY, no?
On behalf of my entire generation, I apologize. I’m doing my best, I promise.
Sorry but that was awesome
Honor Lou Reed with “I AM THE TABLE!”?
I have the sudden urge to buy a windows tablet
How cool would it be if they did Contact?
HE FOUND A BIGGER HAT
5th country performance now…
They’ve been hiding in Pharrell’s hat this whole time!
Though admittedly it wasn’t a bad song by any means. I guess a massive Hey Jude singalong just wasn’t on the cards.
“Yay! A new Macca song! Who wanted them to play a Beatles track anyways?” – NOBODY EVER
This whole collaboration is a dangerous activity. ZING
Case and point: the singer’s awkward gasp after “breathing in” (really?)
