I’m pretty sure it was Ringo who came up with the “mocker” line, but I could be wrong.

I’m all for artists moving out of their comfort zones, stretching out, experimenting, etc, but in the case of Weezer, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Rivers needs to stop letting other people write (and sing) the songs, Ric Ocasek needs to be Weezer’s producer in perpetuity, and Pat Wilson needs to give up his strange obsession with the guitar. Seriously, dude. You’re a drummer. Deal with it.

Stereogum has officially entered the clickbait game.

It’s the b-side of “Attack and Pick Away at Your Friend.”

In all seriousness, I can only offer my observations as an outsider, but it seems to me that Morrissey’s cancellation track record puts him in a negative light. People have grown tired of his erratic behavior and constantly cancelled/rescheduled dates. Perhaps he thought he could win some sympathy by throwing the blame on someone else for a change. “This time it’s not my fault, I swear!”

I understand that Morrissey has helped Kristeen’s career tremendously over the years, but that’s no reason to throw her under the bus.

That’s the best I can do in terms of sorting out my opinions, and I figure it’s better to leave a thoughtful comment rather than the usual “HE SHOULD EAT A CHEESEBURGER” bullshit.

“I’d say the Black Keys’ talent is 90% Auerbach”

Agreed. Coincidentally, it’s kind of reminiscent of the Jack/Meg ratio with the White Stripes.

This is why we can’t have nice things.

He should have been arrested in 1986 for grand larceny after stealing songwriting credit from Los Lobos.

Wow. Could we be more condescending to a younger generation by shoving a piece of antiquated technology in their faces and being disgusted by their ignorance? While we’re at it, why don’t we just tell them all to get off our lawn?
