Went to the reunion show in 2008. Pretty exciting, tho the rarities disc is questionable…not sure how some of those qualify as rare.

Dear person who says “at least we have the first rentals album”, please get over Matt Sharp! As a matter of fact, DEAR WORLD, PLEASE GET OVER MATT SHARP! This opinion is so cliche now that I have to believe that at least half of the people who express it, never even HAD a legitimate appreciation for this band even in their prime. I’m tired of pre-Greenists who’ve been saying the same stuff over and over again for 10 years – you’d think they would’ve stopped talking by now. It wouldn’t matter if this album was a turd or if it was solid gold, you would NEVER like it because it’s not 1996!

This grossed me out so hard, I had a panic attack.
…And I like Hole.

I saw Active Child last night open for School of Seven Bells and I swear, they played a song with a melody identical to “Follow You Down” by Gin Blossoms. Now, I understand that this is Stereogum and that most of you have probably put that band somewhere in the black box of your mind ‘cause you’re cooler than I am. And duh, I know that all musicians subconsciously borrow every now and then, but when it’s like a million measure run, it’s really hard to ignore. Not trying to rain on any parades; it might be a coincidence, but at the end of the day, that song will still sound a lot like that song by Gin Blossoms.

My childhood address didn’t work. I guess Wauwatosa, WI isn’t a very cool place to grow up.

Vernon and West take break from bickering about vocoder vs. autotune to bring us this less-altered track of “What the hell is this?”

I saw this shitshow on Letterman last week. Vocals sounded forced and unnatrual and she looked like hell in the most unoriginal way. Maybe being rock enough isn’t what earns you the privilege of sporting a leather jacket, maybe it’s about being not horrible and whiney. Taylor Momsen, NO LEATHER JACKET FOR YOU!

In the tradition of lyric absorption via video text a la “Right Now” and “Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth With Money in My Hand” comes this colorful vid boasting F-bombs!
