Pavement wrote plenty of songs as good or better than Weezer. For instance: Silent Kid, Cut Yr Hair, Here, Range Life, Major Leagues, Spit on a Stranger, Shady Lane, Rattled By the Rush, Unseen Power of the Picket Fence, and on and on. Your assertion that they didn’t is completely bunk. Weezer’s only good albums are their first two. Also, you’re in college? Well la-di-frickin-da.

Quite possibly the worst ACL lineup ever.

The drummer walking around with sticks air drumming was deliberately done by Live as a nod to INXS and the “Need You Tonight” video where their drummer was doing the same.

‘Purple’ is such a great rock album. One of the best of the 90’s for sure. This was the 2nd rock cassette I ever bought when I was 10 years old, the first was ‘New Miserable Experience’ by Gin Blossoms. You can really hear the Zeppelin influence STP had on this album. Killer riffs and really interesting song arrangements. Some of the acoustic bridges in certain songs sound like they could have come straight off of ‘Houses of the Holy’ or ‘IV’. If not better than Pearl Jam they were at least just as good. There’s a mysterious vibe to ‘Purple’ that ‘Vitalogy’ also has. There’s just something really special about 1994. Probably the last truly great year for rock music.

Blink 182 was, is, and always will be a terrible band. Pale imitation of Green Day who are ten times the band and musicians that Blink are. Travis Barker is overrated. Terrible snare sound and overly busy meth’d out drumming. Tom DeLonge also had one of the most awful grating voices in rock music ever.

If there was a band called “The Fa##ots” you would all be up in arms about it. But apparently it’s OK for this band to be called “Viet Cong” since the Vietnamese community is irrelevant to you.

If this band called themselves “The Faggots” you all would be up in arms about it. But since the Vietnamese community is apparently irrelevant to you all you are OK with the band name “Viet Cong”.

I like Noel and his crazy opinions, but he needs to lay off Jimi. That’s hallowed ground right there, and Jimi’s version of ‘All Along The Watchtower’ is the definitive version of the song. Even Dylan thought so.

You are tone-deaf clearly. The melody is exactly the same.

Deafheaven is overrated in my opinion. “Melting Sun” by Lantlos wipes the floor with “Sunbather”.

Ok so basically because they’re from NYC and are friends with someone at Stereogum they get a track premiere and review? Would you do this for an up and coming Texas band? There’s good music happening out there everywhere, not just from your NYC buddies (who aren’t good).

I agree with his criticisms, but it’s kind of foolish for him to publicly make these statements. It’s makes him come across and petty and childish. Foo Fighters and Pearl Jam also have some of the most macho lunkheaded fan bases full of bro’s who are going apeshit cause Corgan dared to criticize their favorite bands.

My view is this, both bands started off strong for the first three albums and then lost it.
Foo Fighters:
S/T album – his best work, great album start to finish (as well as all the b-sides and live bootlegs from that era).
Colour and Shape – good, but overproduced.
Nothing Left to Lose, their last good album, pretty solid album from start to finish.
One By One – this is where they started to sound like Nickelback for the next 14 years.

Pearl Jam:
Ten – some classic singles, but can still hear remnants of hair metal.
VS – more aggressive sound, some classic tracks, good album
Vitalogy – by far their best album
No Code – good album but their downward trajectory started here…
