GLORIOUS Legit contender, for sure. Like, was that theme all this guy ever needed? Did he suffer through a decade of butt-ass TNA themes just because he didn't know what was awaiting him? Nakamura's theme also a masterpiece obv.

August 24, 2016 on J. Cole Is One Of Rap’s Biggest Stars. Why?
Last 4 albums of the week were Ka, Thee Oh Sees, Dinosaur Jr.*, and Jeremih. I love the shit out of pop music, but I press myself hard to listen to everything and pump up anything exceptional I hear, regardless of genre. It's precisely that fear of missing out on stuff that pushes me to do that. We post a lot of music on this site, but a very large percentage of it is stuff that we're genuinely excited about. There's just a lot of music right now. * I actually think I got a little lazy on Dino Jr. week, partly because I'd never written at length about them post-reunion. Shoulda probably given it to Noname instead.

Hamilton is form-pushing too tho! And it's also clearly the reason why he's on this show. I would bet money that Baz Luhrmann has never heard a clipping, song.

"Unrealistic" isn't a problem. "Stupid" is a problem.

Let Corgan Be Corgan. (He is almost certainly not going to come on our show.)

Yeah, but Bun had "once upon a time, not to long ago / a brother like myself had to strongarm a ho / now this is not a ho in the sense of having a pussy / but a pussy having no goddam sense"
