I was getting my haircut when the news came on the radio and from there out the modern alternative pop whatever bullshit station switched over to all Prince. Just goes to show how deep the love runs for the guy. My fucking hair stylist who I only see every three or four months cause I'm a lazy fuck even mentioned that he remembered I was born in Minneapolis and asked if my family is gonna be really bummed out about this. Damn right they are

And you're forgetting fucking Dylan. 2016 is coming and we need to build a wall around these people because this cold blooded killing machine of a year is coming after everyone. Only one I'm not worried about is Iggy cause that it'd make too much sense for this year to take him from us too, and nothing about Iggy Pop makes sense.

Pretend? I don't know who you hang around but I don't really know anyone who takes their music seriously that wasn't already a Bowie or Prince fan long ago, or at least respected the originality and talent they had and all the ideas and trends that they started. I get what you're saying about people acting like they cared about a musician or celebrity of any kind right after they die, but you're definitely underestimating the impact and influence Bowie and Prince had on so many of us.

Also, as ashamed as I am to admit it, I attended my fair share of pop-punk shows in high school and this kind of thing isn't out of the ordinary at all. People hop on stage all the time to dive off, and if you don't do it quick and just stand there too long you can expect a shove (if you're lucky) or a whack in the back from a guitar (if you aren't) to get your ass back where it belongs

Yeah, the dude's clearly a douche but I can't feel sorry for the girl at all. Fans don't belong on the stage at a concert unless they're invited up. It's no different than the drunk shirtless asshole that decides to run on the field during a football game and deservedly gets his ass laid out by security. You're asking for punishment by inserting yourself somewhere you're clearly not supposed to be.

I really hope Jay and 'Ye and the gang aren't too oblivious to realize all of this Tidal exclusive bullshit accomplished nothing except causing people to resent Tidal more than they already had.

So sick of T Swift. At first I liked her well enough seeing as she's one of the few ultra popular hit makers who's songs are generally a step above mediocre, but it's just gotten so old. Can we get a new white girl with catchy over produced tunes (or better yet, someone who's completely not that at all) to take over as America's sweetheart?

No way Sturgill isn't top ten considering Metamodern Sounds is a lot better than anything 90% of the artists on this list have put out in the last few years

Kanye Frank Ocean Radiohead Strurgill Simpson Spiritualized The Strokes Japandroids RTJ Vampire Weekend Brand New Gorillaz MGMT If half of these actually happen 2016 is probably gonna top 2015 for me off those alone, which would be amazing since 2015 was my favorite year of music in a long time. Add to that the fact that we already lnow we're getting new Bowie, Last Shadow Puppets, Animal Collective, Drake, Savages, and Death Grips among a swath of other notable upcoming releases and I think it's safe to say it's gonna be a pretty special year (unless a large number of these artists manage to put out disappointing or mediocre material which is always a possibility).

There was one clip I saw where he's talking about the guy from the start of Prometheus. I'd like to know how the conversation reached that point

October 7, 2015 on Watch Kanye West’s 2-Hour “In Camera” Interview
Thank you! 80's Comedown Machine is easily my favorite song on that album which I actually think is pretty good and under rated on the whole. I don't know, I feel like if the strokes can put out another good record or two to close out the decade and actually tour and promote them and insert themselves back into a relevant position in the music world these post-Room on Fire albums will have a much more positive reputation than they do now. Same time though, they've been an incredibly frustrating band because of what they could have been. After Is This It they could have spent the next five years becoming the biggest rock band in the world (if the black keys can do it I have no doubt the strokes could have had they chosen that path) and actually made a real impact. where as it stands they've got a great fan base that loves almost everything they've done, but they kind of came and went without ever making much of a mark on the music scene as a whole. They've yet to make good on that "Saviors of Rock n' Roll" title

Well since like half his songs these days seem to be at least ten minutes long I'm guessing they must take at least ten minutes to write.

Oh wow, I always try avoid commenting on these lists but sometimes I just have to. This is a very bizarre ordering. I mean, I'd say it'd be pretty hard to justify calling El Camino a better record than Brothers, and Rubber Factory kicks the shit out of both of those albums. Also having Turn Blue ranked ahead of any of their other albums seems like a stretch, especially when it's two spots ahead of Thickfreakness. Opinions are opinions though or whatever, if I had to rank them (admittedly not an easy task since they've been so consistent throughout their career) I'd probably have to go: 8. Turn Blue 7. Magic Potion 6. The Big Come Up 5. Attack and Release 4. El Camino 3. Thickfreakness 2. Brothers 1. Rubber Factory Side note: The only time I've seen the Keys live was when they were touring El Camino and the Arctic Monkeys were opening for them. The arena was more than half empty and completely sedated and bored for the Arctic Monkeys entire (actually really solid) set but by the time the black keys made it on stage the place was packed and fired up and it was a great set with a great atmosphere from the band to the crowd. Cut to last year I saw the Arctic Monkeys headline a show at Red Rocks in Colorado and the place was packed with screaming teenage girls taking selfies for Instagram and the band played a bland note by note replica of their recordings set that left me passed that I'd paid to come see them at all but had their new target audience screaming and social networking with joy. I guess the point I'm trying to make is it's crazy how much of a difference a couple of years can make for the way a band is received. Also if you wanna pack big venues appeal to the social networking teens demographic, because teenage girls will buy a ticket to your concert just for the opportunity to post a picture of themselves there on Instagram.

I remember when CM came out and a lot of people were shitting on it "80's Comedown Machine" was often singled out as the low point of the album, which I thought was pretty infuriating. Not only is that a killer song but it's probably the best proof we have that if they want to the Strokes can totally branch out and make different styles of music that sounds nothing like their signature style/sound that they've been criticized for sticking to and being too formulaic.
