i feel like there's no way to not sound snobby and still say this but here goes. She made "The Milk Eyed Mender." He was in "That's My Boy." This makes my brain hurt.

I still like "The Battle of Los Angeles" more than the self-titled...

respectable list although i definitely have to question the lack of "Summertime Clothes" although "Brothersport" is my second favorite tune on MPP so good choice there.

I'm glad to see that Pitchfork has become an adjective now.

how is "Reckoner" better than "Idioteque" or "Everything in It's Right Place?"

I was going to question your decision to place that K-Pop video so high but then you quoted Frank Sobatka so I'll let it slide.

god i can't wait for this. sad that I have to choose between a lot of great acts over the week. i was really looking forward to tUnE-yArDs and Ben Howard but I have to pick one. oh well, Merrill Garbus it is then

May 14, 2012 on Kanye West – “Lost In This World (Tiësto Remix)”
I realize that AnCo isn't everybody's cup of tea, but I've never understood why this band has become the internet whipping boy as some poster child of overly pretentious avant-pop. when i listen to tracks like "My Girls" or "Summertime Clothes" and remove any of the band's hype, it's just gorgeous, fun pop music. i feel like unnecessary hype backlash only begins to describe the reaction to this band.

Outside of Kanye's output, Black Hippy might be the best thing happening in hip-hop right now. the whole crew (but especially Kendrick Lamar) is just setting the rap world on fire.

May 3, 2012 on Ab-Soul – “Empathy” Video (Feat. Alori Jo & JaVonte)
yeah. i caught them at Glasslands in Brooklyn for their Record Release party. they put on a great show live. i've really been shocked that "Friends of Friends" hasn't caught on more because it was a really fun track.

April 23, 2012 on Fiona Apple – “Every Single Night”
yeah. i mean he's right, but that was definitely rough. realizing i'm saying something terrible about myself here, but I enjoy Darren Criss' voice but he was not up to the challenge of that song by any stretch of the imagination.

R.I.P. to a true American legend. In high school, I woke up to "The Weight" on my alarm clock every day for about two years. Even to an agnostic like myself, that song was a spiritual palette cleanser. Helm (and the other members of the Band who have passed before him) will be sorely missed and their contribution to classic Americana can't be overstated.

While I certainly agree the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a bit of a joke (the fact that Genesis only got in last year and that Rush has never been inducted or even Sonic Youth), I don't think that Axl Rose had any grand motives or intentions there. I don't want to start a flame war or hog the comment section on here so this link basically sums up how I feel about the issue.

someone should have used a holographic Axl Rose so we could have finally had a Guns N' Roses "reunion" at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...
