For anyone looking for a band that does Blink-182 better than Blink-182 have done Blink-182 for the past 17 years, might I introduced you to Man Overboard? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EiOOgdFpoNs

One thing I think of a lot, in relation to what this article is talking about, are bands like the Smiths and the Beatles, who had a regular stream of non-album singles that came out across their career. I'd love to see more bands release music in that way--a bunch of low-stakes songs that allow them to develop their sound apart from periodic album releases.

Wow, this sounds so much like Pavement that I'm almost embarrassed for this band. And yet, it's really catchy.

it would literally just be a silent shrug with a shitty grin. You would never know if they were trying to say the name or just DIDN'T GIVE A SHIT AT ALL!!

That Fifth Harmony song feels like it sets feminism back 50 years

Seconded. This song is alright but I think she's deferring way too much to SOPHIE. There are already SOPHIE songs that sound like SOPHIE and I loved Charli's sound on the last LP. But maybe this will get her more attention which wouldn't be the worst thing.

Way to book not a single LA artist. What, Beck was too busy?

I think there's a very big difference between "isn't allowed to" and "really should not"

January 22, 2016 on Iggy Azalea Responded To Macklemore’s “White Privilege II” And Talib Kweli’s Not Having It
As far as this song goes, I'm made to think of something I read last year, in an article about white people participating in Black Lives Matters events. It was a list of do's and don'ts, and one of the things it said was that, as a white person, we should make sure to let the people reading the march, black people, man the microphones, the bullhorns, whatever. As a white dude with occasional moments of grandiosity, the idea that we should show up and shut up, and let the fight be lead by the people it directly affects--that stuck with me. So, with this song, Macklemore is grabbing the microphone. And, confusingly, he's grabbing the mic in a song about how comfortable he feels grabbing the mic. That's a very complex, self-reflexive pose for any song to take, and he is just not gifted enough to pull it off.

I mean, he calls her rapping "fascist" in the song. Not saying she's right or wrong but it's not exactly unreasonable to be pissed about that.

If you think that anyone incapable of curing a loved one of drug addiction is an "enabler" then you really don't understand enabling or drug addiction

"Our latest evidence of the Manchester combo’s pop prowess is “Love Me,” the first single from their upcoming second album I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it." uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
