I will never tire of Bob Mould's "soaring hooky, straight-ahead rock rager[s]." Never.

I don't know if the tweet embed will work, but the FBI New York office has tweeted that they did not seize the Wu Tang album:
#Breaking no seizure warrant at the arrest of Martin Shkreli today, which means we didn't seize the Wu-Tang Clan album.— FBI New York (@NewYorkFBI) December 17, 2015

If his assets end up getting seized they sure can.

And Smashing Pumpkins made the theme song to that forgotten Batman film: Batman & Robin (Feat. "The End is the Beginning is the End") grossed $238 million worldwide. Pulp Fiction grossed $213 million worldwide.

Yeah, if memory serves it goes back to the feeling that there were some unnecessary tracks on Mellon Collie whereas Siamese Dream was pure perfection. Also, people were already starting to tire of Billy's shtick a little bit.

Same, although I did enjoy them the time I saw them.

Oceania and Monuments to an Elegy are actually pretty good. Not good enough usually to make me pass up Gish/Siamese/Mellon Collie/Pisces when I'm going to listen to some Pumpkins, but pretty good.

I still occasionally wear my shirt from this tour that lists all the dates on the back, and it will never stop boggling my mind how long they were able to sell out arenas thanks to Mellon Collie.

Where did I say the song was a rip off or that Gonzalez was right? I couldn't care less about whether Hozier ripped off Feist or Chilly Gonzalez is a terrible musicologist. But suing someone because they said something in a YouTube video *IS* overly defensive and the ridiculous numbers of lawsuits recently between musicians *IS* ridiculous. It's the internet, people say stupid crap everyday. Ignore it and move on with your life.

An artist accused another artist of plagiarism and music blogs wrote about that. By your definition EVERYTHING on the internet is clickbait. As for whether Hozier himself or his management filed the suit, that's irrelevant. Management is his agent, thus is him.

"Hozier Is Suing Chilly Gonzales For Saying He Ripped Off Feist" If you honestly think that headline is sensational I can see why you're such a Hozier fan. That's as straightforward and bland as a headline can be.

An article about one musician suing another musician on a website dedicated to music news is clickbait? Quick someone tell cnn.com they aren't allowed to write about missing airplanes anymore. And tell espn.com the NFL is off limits. And while we're at it, better tell Buzzfeed they shouldn't compile random tweets and/or gifs anymore...wait, that one's actually true.

It allows them to create an echo chamber which will likely only increase the level of bile as they each try to one up each other. Then one of them with an extra screw loose does something in real life because they think it's acceptable.

See dansolo below. I'd only add that even if addressing it doesn't change the speaker, hopefully other impressionable folks starting down a similar road will be course corrected.

Ignoring it certainly doesn't work, so letting them know their comments/views aren't acceptable in society is required.
