Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

By Scott Lapatine / April 17, 2015 - 12:51 pm
Busy weekend for music fans. There's Coachella, again. If you're going, or watching on AXS TV, we have some recommendations for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner will presumably sit this weekend out. Meanwhile Saturday is Record Store Day, a holiday that's ultimately good for music retailers' bottom lines, but not without… More »

Coachella 2015 (weekend one!) has begun. This year's Indio retreat has some firsts: an on-site H&M, a ban on narcissism, and Donald Fagen learning who AC/DC are. Stereogum's Tom Breihan will brave the heat to report on the best and worst of the fest all weekend. Look for him if you're there. And if you're… More »


Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

This week we ranked Ariel Pink's albums and March's metal tracks. GY!BE had our Album Of The Week and Speedy Ortiz dropped our favorite new song. We took Mountain Goats' John Darnielle to his first pro wrestling show in 35 years. And we scratched our heads after Jay Z and his 16 star equity partner… More »


Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

This week we got the Outside Lands and Lollapalooza lineups — both decent, especially if you like old British rock stars. We ranked 10 Marvin Gaye songs, 17 beach bands, and 30 Max Martin tracks. We recommended the movie Montage Of Heck and the new albums from Sufjan Stevens, Courtney Barnett, and Action Bronson andMore »

SXSW is safer, less obnoxious, and more manageable this year. I've been coming since 2006 and this week's fest may end up being the most enjoyable overall. Notably, Austin isn't overrun with pop stars and corporate takeovers as in recent years. Apple, who brought Coldplay in 2014, sat this one out. Myspace and Justin Timberlake,… More »

This week Kip Berman reminded me that my AOL screen name was once COMPUTEROK. That might help explain why it was Radiohead Week here at Stereogum. We celebrated the band's legacy through essays, interviews, lists, and photos of Thom Yorke tattoos. Did you know The Bends actually came out 20 years ago today? You ca… More »

This week Kanye West announced So Help Me God. His much-anticipated Yeezus follow-up has "All Day" (one of our favorite new songs) and contributions from pop heroes like Paul McCartney and Madonna along with others we surely don't know about yet. Maybe Lorde! Probably not David Crosby. Fresh off murdering the BRITs, he's planned surprise… More »

Taylor thinks it's blue and black, as does Kanye, but I won't really care until Noel Gallagher weighs in. More »


Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments + Redesign FAQ

By Scott Lapatine / February 21, 2015 - 3:14 pm
Stereogum launched a long overdue redesign last night and If You're Reading This You Probably Have Questions. Our goals were to make the site faster, more flexible, easier to navigate and read (larger fonts), and more modern. There was also a big upgrade to our backend that will make our workflow more efficient. Our new… More »

Sunday is Music's Biggest Night™ so we are obligated to watch the Grammys instead of Better Call Saul. If you're gonna watch, head here to live blog with us. Quips wanted! Of course we'll have to accept the possibility that Iggy Azalea will take home the Best Rap Album trophy -- a travesty on par… More »


Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

On Thursday we wrote about Limp Bizkit's Wes Borland, who seemed to be dreading his attendance at next week's nü-metal cruise ShipRocked ("Can't wait to see me some roided out tribal tattooed spray tanned Jell-O shot filled bohunks do their best drunk MMA impressions in the top deck mosh pit.") This was a source of… More »

Will 2015 be the year of the '70s singer/songwriter? Is Kendrick Lamar's new album coming out on Tuesday? What was pussy like in the '60s? We considered a lot of questions this week, but the only thing we learned for sure is that we're lucky Björk is still making harrowing music and jamming to Dutch… More »

White, Pops Staples, Chvrches, PJMore »

It's the first Shut Up, Dude of 2015! I can feel it's gonna be a good year for comments. Lots of gifs, lots of lols from you guys. Before we get into this week's highest and lowest rated responses to Coachella vs. Governors Ball, Fashion Week, and 24/192 downloads, I have a bit of housecleaning. More »


The 50 Best Stereogum Comments Of 2014

By Scott Lapatine / December 31, 2014 - 4:29 pm
Stereogum turns 13 years old tomorrow. 13! This corner of the internet is largely unrecognizable from the music blog I started on a lark that New Year's Day, but in some important ways Stereogum in 2014 was more true to its original ethos than any year in recent memory. All of us here strive to… More »

Twas the Shut Up, Dude before Christmas when all through the blog not a reader was trolling not even RubJohn. This week D'Angelo messed up our Best Albums Of 2014 list, but his surprise LP doesn't have to mess up yours: The Gummy Awards will launch next week -- sorry for the delay, there wa… More »

ICYMI, our 50 Best Albums and 70 Favorite Songs year-end lists are up. Although now it looks like a new D'Angelo album is out next week? Thanks a lot, D'Angelo. Make your own lists if you haven't yet, because we're launching the 9th annual Gummy Awards readers' poll next week. Also, since you guys are… More »

Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

By Scott Lapatine / November 21, 2014 - 6:17 pm
This week we looked at 26 bands from the NYC rock resurgence of the '00s (i.e., the bands that were cool when I started this blog 75 years ago). Meanwhile, several bands that were popular 20 years ago -- Soundgarden, Faith No More, the Smashing Pumpkins -- released surprisingly strong tracks. Chumped's Teenage Retirement wa… More »
