Not for nothing, but there's something simple and sorta brainless when it comes to country music, and great rock is a hybrid of this genre. See, I'm a Stones fan at the core, and some of their best albums have serious country influence which blends well with their old school blues, and its deeply related to country...the lyrics and progressions may be simple but it's fun and easy. To poke fun at it is shallow. Ultimately, it might not be something that necessarily fits with Stereogum, but if you love rock, then it's something ya need to take on the chin and let pass. You just come off as a snob which I guess is the alternative fan base as a whole, but really, just move on and let it pass you by without the snark. Cuz there are a lot of fools who make alternative rock, too. And what's ironic is that they should probably tip a cowboy hat to them because it's a fraction of why they're even able to do what they do anyway.

Bloc, just grab some Firestone Walker for some satisfying west coast IPA's and when you ever get the chance to enjoy our east coast glory that is Treehouse, all will be right in your world of beer.

It's coming, I know this based on ignorant intuition...it's palpable. And, when it does, it will make all our AOTY lists shift like tectonic plates.

I know Mitski is all fresh and newest to our listening palettes, but let's slow down here with #3...many more deserve that slot.

I mean, it was nominated for a Grammy...does that classify it as underrated, a reminder that Eminem won it that nobody needed.

Now that's ridiculous...Fools Gold would work anywhere, on any album....can't count how many times I've melted into the closing quad of Shoot you Down, This is the One, I am the Resurrection and that over the years.

Bury Me at Makeout Creek was fantastic...not surprised she's still moving upward. It has that same sorta Youth Lagoon "Watch me record a fantastic record in my living room" type vibe.

Martin Short gets a free pass on anything he does...guys been comedy gold for over 40 years. Dude could sashay across a stage as Ed Grimley next week and I'd still chuckle. One of the most talented sketch/stage comedy actors we've been blessed to have.

Needs to have some Mexican flair...maybe a little Los Lobos can be inserted here.

"Call the mayor and shut down the block about four streets and put screens up so they could have a party outside, I heard it was sold out already." That fool actually said this on the phone at 2AM while 4,000 people flooded the streets. Did he really need to stoke something up that couldn't have possibly happened? Absolute moron.

June 6, 2016 on Kanye West’s Late Night NYC Show Shut Down Amid Near-Riot
I'm reading nothing but great press on advance Popstar screenings, and the production value alone with the music releases, as well as Apatow's involvement with the films budget, this is shaping up to be a no brainer for success. I agree that a little of this sorta Weird Al slash Borat thing can go a long way, but most of these songs so far have fantastic hooks and along with Samberg's charming and sarcastic, over the top schtick is sticking.

I always think that shockingly bad names like these are a direct result of the band sitting around a bong way before they think they'll ever be recognized by anyone but themselves, only to realize when they are noticed they made a poorly, baked judgement call. And, there's always that one band member who says, "Well, we seemed to think it was funny at the time."

I've put in way too much time into trying to figure out if there is actually any wrongdoing going on here and have come to the conclusion that, yes, theres definitely a similarity with both songs, but what is most disturbing is that I love both songs. Is this wrong?
