I’m another one who has posted in multiple other album lists that the Maiden one needed to happen. Between this and the Metallica one, Stereogum, wow…just wow. And Adrien already knows how much I appreciate his work. So this is just above and beyond all hope.

Still waiting on the Motörhead one! :)

Damn editing. “Could NEVER EVER…”

The beauty about some lyricists–the lot of Maiden–Ronnie James Dio, that Pinko Punko finds “cheesy” and that Carson finds navigating “ridiculousness,” is that buried in all the preposterousness, Ronnie James Dio still expressed some TRUTH about human living that Bob Dylan or Elvis Costello or Tom Waits or Nick Cave could EVER, EVER get at using more ironic, sarcastic, or earnest approaches.

Life is not rational or logical. It is absurd. Ridiculous trumps ironic at every turn.

That’s verbatim what I wrote on Facebook when I posted this.

Neko and the band should learn a full set of Motörhead songs and bring appropriate backline to all venues to play it at the correct volume. I’d bet the majority of those “fans” more interested in playing with their phones than experiencing the music would turn tail and evacuate the venue by the time the band hit “Mean Machine” or “Snaggletooth” at 140 db. Weed out the weak. Neko is NOT music for people who don’t like music.

It is. My constant comments in that massive saga got me my only-ever article published in IO, just as he was leaving. ;)

Doug Moore, you have just published the single greatest, most succinct description of the “it” that Metallica is. Ever. Thank you.

Let’s get to that Iron Maiden list so the tantrums can really start. Stereogum will experience the most traffic it’s had in five years.

I hope they NEVER lose the rock faces. I’m from a generation where Motörhead, AC/DC, and Iron Maiden all threw shapes and made rock faces. Sissy little baby children raised on Taylor Swift, Avril Lavine and American Idol are, of course, gonna be skeered when real musicians kick total ass. This is life. Learn to love it and live it.
