Since the show was in LA, pizza must’ve been mediocre at best.

No votes for Wes Scantlin from Puddle Of Mudd or whoever that dude was from The Vines?

So…no Smash turns 20 article today?

Is that “Down” by 311 or “Down” by Stone Temple Pilots?

“Seriously, though, most of the reports surrounding Ultra make it sound like a special kind of hell.”

It took you seeing new reports to realize that? I could tell just by the pictures.

Am I the only one on here who gets annoyed at how self-congratulatory these comments are? The running theme seems to be “Lollapalooza doesn’t cater to us ‘Gum commenters who have a more enlightened and eclectic taste than most of the population so let us pat ourselves on the back and high-five each other that we don’t go to such ‘mainstream’ festivals such as these.”

Get the FUCK over yourselves people. This lineup ain’t super great but I challenge anyone who reads Stereogum and/or fancies themselves to be an “alt/indie” fan and not find a good amount of acts they enjoy watching.

Man, they really gotta start playing “Limo Wreck” live, that’s probably the best non-single on this fantastic record.

More like “The Day I Tried To Make A Witty Comment On Stereogum (And Failed)”, amirite?

I like Queens but Homme is starting to sound like a bitter old bastard with this. Who cares if Imagine Dragons wins a Grammy over Queens or not? QUOTSA still plays large venues, gets acclaim and has a ton of fans.
