I'm thinking of all the stuff James Murphy said about not becoming a legacy act when he retired LCD Soundsystem. To me, this sounds like a song by LCD Soundsystem, the legacy act. I wasn't sure if I could get behind the idea of LCD Soundsystem 2.0 and this song doesn't help. Sigh.

I now feel like the best tribute to Chuck Berry is to watch a long string of bands playing mediocre covers of "Johnny B. Goode" to highlight how much better Chuck Berry was.

I honestly had no idea anyone thought of this as anything but an innovative and visually striking performance. I guess I can see how it lacks energy when I look back it now, but still, it's super memorable and interesting and playful in exactly that Frank Ocean way.

It's good that he wrote these tweets, because when I saw the photo of Steven Tyler and Joe Perry with Obama, the first thing I thought was, "I wonder if this is indicative of Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer's political positions."

Amy Schumer talking about how much she loves "Formation" reminds me of when people sing "This Land is Your Land" as a "hooray, America!" song without understanding that it's also a socialist anthem. No one's doubting anyone's anyone's enthusiasm or intentions, it's just that she does. not. get. it.

It's just funny coming from a band whose breakthrough song is them singing over "Can You Get to That" by Funkadelic, but I'm guessing they had permission or else their level self awareness is non existent.
