Find Me On:
Here’s a story from Sweden: I listened to that album every day for a couple of months that spring/early summer of -94. I loved it. I remember being at a small festival in June (I was 23, yeah I’m old, get over it) and one of the bands (think they were called Wagon) played a part of “Basket Case” during their soundcheck and, yeah, that’s pretty much the only thing I remember about that festival. Fast forward a couple of months and I hated that album and still can’t listen to it, nor anything Green Day, today. Since I already had listened to it that much before it went the 90′s version of viral it just got too much I guess. The funny thing is that with The Blue Album it was pretty much the same thing and I still adore it to this day. Guess I never really was a punk rocker after all?
Haha, that made me laugh. Thanks!
Seriously though, it would be pretty cool if NIN played this live once. For some reason, I imagine Trent actually finding this song quite funny. Yeah, I do believe he CAN find things funny. I also believe in Santa and the tooth fairy so maybe I’m not the best judge here.
“A heartfelt FUCK YOU guys” – Trent
Yeah that was great! This band puzzles me, some things they’ve released I just can’t stand and other things, like most but not all of the new album are really, really good. I guess I have Ben Lee and his versions of the songs off “New Wave” to thank for me giving them a chance at all.
So that’s why I was put on this earth. Great. Well, I guess I do have time for some existential crisis before I’m off to Barcelona and (punchline imminent) Primy Vers in May.
We’re still calling them Vampy Weeks, right? We NEVER have? Uh, ok.
This just sucks. It’s just bad choices overall (Led Zeppelin? Really?) and then Vampy Weeks gets one and I’m confused.
Just so you know, I’m not going to keep score.
Daft Punk vs Macklemore & Ryan Lewis 1-2 already…
Wouldn’t The Knife be exactly the kind of act demanding to be at least 2nd on the bill to agree to play? I can imagine the Dreijers kind of in spite going “Coachella? Well, tell them to put us on top of the poster and we’ll do it”. They kind of just do what the fuck they want.
If he’s gonna perform a song many times in a row I’m pretty sure it’ll be this one: http://24hoursofhappy.com/
It’s just sad that there’s no mention of Two Hours Traffic here. They made one of this year’s best albums, dammit.
This is preposterous, I’m confident when I’m saying that Kanye’s got at least one picture of a jew in his wallet.
If it wasn’t for BrBa, Hello Ladies would have gotten my vote.
Seems like you all forgot about this video: http://www.stereogum.com/1410672/fidlar-cocaine-video-feat-nick-offerman-nsfw/video/
Wait… so you slept too long and missed Dungen? Too bad, it was an inspired set . I think they’ve never played for such a big audience in Sweden before and were really enjoying it. My choice for best act of the festival.
Some of the other songtitles on “mechanical bull”: “So Bored”, “King of the Beach”, “Sail to the Sun” and, yes, apparently also “Wavves”.
Well, that was apparently The Worst. So I guess even the Kid Rock collaboration will be better?
SIJTUT! (signed in just to upvote this) It made me laugh out loud (oh, how I wish there was an abbrevation for that too). Thanks, lwd!
In Sweden this also sounds like Broder Daniel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afluDAFK37w
Which I just realised could be said about Iceage too.
