I agree with a previous commenter about In Utero being underrepresented. Dumb and Pennyroyal Tea would be on my list. As far as Teen Spirit, it’s hard sometimes to separate the over-saturation of a song from its actual content, but I genuinely do not love that song as much as their others. There’s also a good list of songs I cannot listen to without immediately thinking of Weird Al. Thanks, Weird Al.
Liking someone beats doesn’t mean you agree with their antics.
Coldplay is great. #IAMSORRY
Lily Allen wins life.
Yea, not much of the new stuff personally does it for me and that includes old bands I loved that have continued making music. There’s always something that’s missing or leans in a direction that turns me off.
It’s interesting, because one of the bands (I think it was Into It Over It but don’t quote me on that) posted something on their FB page a while back that basically said “F*ck Pitchfork.” I wonder if they will have trouble getting new “emo” bands on board. I feel like an older reunited band would be more likely.
World’s better than the last one.
This was one of the very first albums that I actually bought for myself after I got a CD player. I was only 11 at the time and my mom (who worked in SoHo) would take me to Disc-o-Rama whenever I went to work with her. I always looked forward to taking that trip on her lunch break and picking something out. I also remember Vitalogy, the Blue Album, Pisces Iscariot, and Smash being in my first stack of albums at that time. It’s interesting because I see other people saying this made them cool. I was definitely NOT a cool kid in school (I grew up in Ozone Park/Howard Beach, which was more Jersey Shore type culture), but there was a totally different crowd at my summer camp where I always felt a lot more comfortable wearing Airwalks and being alternative (LOL Airwalks). Green Day was such a huge huge HUGE part of that, probably for everyone in our age bracket.
Damn. All of the 20 year old throw-back posts in the next few years are really going to be a f*cking trip.
I agree with a lot of this. My feelings on Lorde are that I would much rather have her winning Song of the Year than Taylor Swift or Katy Perry, who I think a lot of people are getting bored with. There was definitely a void to be filled for an anti-pop female pop star, and she fits the bill perfectly. I think there’s a ton of ‘dark’ electronic artists that are much better, but that’s just the way I guess.
