I guess it's worth mentioning Morrissey on The Tonight Show, w/ Bill Cosby as host. Cos peppered his monolog w/ Moz' name every few sentences bc the crowd was full of screaming worshippers. He did 'Sing Your Life' and 'There's A Place In Hell For Me and My Friends.' Also The Lemonheads on Conan singing 'Big Gay Heart,' Dando sings "I don't need you to duck my sick to make me feel good about myself." It was a moment fraught with tension.

I worked in a suburban mall record store during that time. There's no mystery, and I am quite sure, that this record was popular because of Enigma. The 3 years between 'Sadeness pt. 1' and this record is basically the amount of time it took for our parents to discover the song. Case closed.

" And since Frank’s widow Gail Zappa, who controlled the trust, died last year. And Dweezil tells The New York Times that his brother Ahmet Zappa has now denied him the use of the Zappa Plays Zappa name, and he also won’t let him sell any merchandise with Frank’s image." Was this article dictated by a teenage girl?

I don't understand what this has to do with Drake.

Why is Stereogum calling this out as bad after SXSW has corrected and apologized for it?

The fact that you initially approached speaking on gay anthems and the lesbian community with the utmost respect by seeking the approval of gay Stereogum commenters before making your post was very thoughtful. The post also may create discourse in a demographic that could otherwise easily ignore the issues the gay anthems movement is fighting against, forcing them to look inwardly to a certain degree and interact with problems that are not their own.

Frankly I don't care about the secondary market. Scalpers have a right to sell the tickets they get, as much as that might suck at times. What I think is wrong is: 1. the broker owning the secondary outlet 2. the venue/artist/management reserving tickets specifically for the secondary market 3. using bots to buy tickets I do believe Congress could do something about 1-3.

It's also an Erasure lyric from 20 years ago. I think it's a British thing.

It shouldn't, I know, but it does. In a single move the band unravels some of its own ethics, and does so in a way that positions them alongside an irrelevant nostalgia act at the highest possible price for fans. It is the exact opposite of LCD's approach to their finale.
