There was a time when Stereogum lists were full of real artists, like Radiohead and so on. Now it features Call Me Maybe and Gangnam Style. Enough said.

Either Rubber Soul or Revolver: "Norwegian Wood," "Taxman," "Eleanor Rigby," "I'm Looking Through You," "If I Needed Someone," etc. Pure gold.

Using the old demagogic excuse that Franco was a Real Madrid supporter is the typical victimism that Barcelona fans like to play. If a Madrid fan or coach or player complaints about a referee, for example: they're arrogant, it's not possible, it's not true, etc.; but when the Barcelona side does it: it's fair, justified, etc. It's been the same since the 1950s. And hardly they are "the greatest team of all time," as its fans and supporter press wants to sell it up to us, because everybody that knows *a little* about football, always remembers that several OTHER teams (Real Madrid, Milan AC, Liverpool FC, Bayern Munich) have many more national and european titles than the catalonians. So no, objectively speaking, they're not the best; not even bronze medalists of all time, for all that matters.

It sounds as if they were actual Radiohead lyrics, e.g.: "when i am king you will be first against the wall."

Stereogum forgot to ask Chris Isaak about The xx's Infinity, which although not a cover, it's almost identical to Wicked Game (even the same chords!)

I'd give anything but my cat to see Radiohead and Portishead touring together. I dreamed of this since 1998.

At this point, almost anything's better than Weezer. "Buddy holly" was a cool song, but it's as old as Nevermind, which soon will turn 20 :P
