Holy shit, what a thread. And I've only read half of it. What a way to make us think about the purpose and meaning behind band names.

Every aspiring band should be so lucky to have press like this. Was there a thank you note included in that cease and desist letter?

Man I live right around the corner from Supreme in LA, and I see folks line up around the block all the time for whatever the new thing is. This is the first time I'll actually know what everyone's waiting for.

If you had put subtitles under that video, I would assumed she was speaking Swedish and believed whatever they said.

This band that became famous because they acted like teenagers (and captured the fun and frustration of being a teenager) has never really stopped acting like teenagers. Only now they're pushing 40 and it's not funny, nor do they really have a sense of what it's like being a teenager anymore. It's sad to see a band go down like this because I think if they'd managed their legacy a little bit, we might be talking about their importance and impact as one of the last torch bearers of rock's dominance over pop culture. Hell, the small corner of pop radio that makes room for rock is playing Fall Out Boy, who can thank bands like Blink-182 for paving the way for them.

Also, they just borrowed some of the exact sounds from the original--horns, "doh doh" vocal sample and the "ooh"--which is like, 3/4 of the song.

Spencer Tweedy's drumming is pretty excellent. That part starting around 4:30 is no kids stuff. This is like when Ken Griffey and Ken Griffey Jr. batted next to each other in Seattle.

I feel completely ambivalent about Coldplay these days, except for the fact that every time they put out a new album I go back and listen to "A Rush of Blood to the Head."

On a related note: why aren't more music critics upset over the absence of the great book series "Best Music Writing"? It was a great place to showcase the different formats and approaches to music criticism. It seems like we might not be having this discussion if it were still around, or at least we'd be able to draw from more sources as examples writing style and criticism. Okay, the campaign has begun. #BringBackBMW

In basketball (or really any sport) a ref will sometimes miss a call and then realize it after the fact. To maintain fairness, he makes a call going against the other team to make the game "fair." It's not openly acknowledged, but everyone just kind of accepts that this is the way things shake out and continue playing. This is how I feel about the New Artist Category of the grammys.
