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

By Scott Lapatine / August 1, 2014 - 9:48 pm

This week’s newsmakers included Beck, who had Jack White jam with him in Providence, got Jeff Tweedy and Jarvis Cocker to interpret his sheet music, and asked Stephen Colbert to give him a hug. His new “Heart Is A Drum” video was also one of the best of the week. I forgive him for not… More »

On Tuesday night, Jack White took in a Cubs-Padres game as part of a three-ballparks-in-three-nights promo and probably had a fine time. But he also made the mistake of showing a range of human emotions in the Friendly Confines. A TV camera caught the rocker’s grumpy mug and it instantly went viral. So we had… More »

Shut Up, Dude is coming a little early today because I’m at Forecastle (aka the Pitchfork Festival of Kentucky). It’s got OutKast, the Replacements, Slint, and plenty of bands that aren’t just reuniting for the money like Beck, Jack White, Sun Kil Moon, Spoon, Action Bronson, and Sharon Van Etten.

Last Friday was a federal holiday so there was no Shut Up, Dude. But I don’t wanna leave last week’s winners and losers hanging, so below we’ve got the highest and lowest rated comments from 6/27-7/3 and then from 7/4-7/10 and then a single editor’s choice for the last two weeks. Read ‘em and weep/celebrate. More »

This week we launched our Song Of The Summer poll, which pissed off many of you because it did not include the songs you wanted on the ballot. But here’s the thing: the concept of Song Of The Summer is a thing with a widely agreed upon definition. Here’s NPR, for example: “We’re talking about… More »

ICYMI, this week we ranked the 50 Best Albums Of 2014 So Far. It’s a difficult exercise, and Lazaretto fans will insist we did it wrong, but hopefully it turned you on to some albums you may have overlooked. I can’t wait for December when Mark Kozelek and Taylor Swift battle for AOTY supremacy. A… More »

We’re still a few days away from the official release of Ultraviolence, but if you’ve already heard it, you’re probably surprised at how good it is. As Tom wrote, “Ultraviolence is a gorgeous, shattering piece of work, and it’s just as euphorically fake as Born To Die was. It’s just that LDR fakes it realer… More »

It’s Governors Ball weekend, three days and nights when the epicenter of NYC’s music scene relocates from Brooklyn to Randall’s Island. This year’s lineup is stacked: the Strokes, Jack White, Vampire Weekend, Spoon, Deafheaven, OutKast (duh). Today’s already seen performances from Run The Jewels (who said onstage they’d have a new album “very fucking soon”)… More »

This week’s Shut Up, Dude comes a little later than usual, but I have a good excuse. I’m at Napa Valley’s BottleRock (“The strangest festival lineup of 2014?” -Stereogum) to find out what happens when bands like Thee Oh Sees, Deerhunter, and No Age are booked at the same event as Gin Blossom, Spin Doctors,… More »

Sorry for the delay on this, guys. It’s like 3AM here. Really epic night, though. Lana did three songs and the escargot is like, the G.O.A.T. escargot. My table is me, Bret Easton Ellis, Andre Leon Tally, Jodorowsky, Ellen, Lil Terio, Rick Rubin, the CEO of Adidas, NeNe Leakes, and Rob Kardashian. I’m a little… More »

This week the Black Keys and Lily Allen were in NYC to promote their latest albums. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney stopped by SNL, Letterman, and Colbert, and might end up with next week’s #1 album for their trouble, if they can keep that “bullshitXscape from the top. Cornetto Cupid Allen did the TodayMore »

I walked by Barclays Center earlier tonight and saw some kids outside with lint rollers. Take that, Canada! Not that I don’t appreciate the levity; it was a rough week. DJ Rashad and DJ E-Z Rock died. Paul Simon and Edie Brickell were arrested after a domestic disturbance. Warpaint’s guitarist slut-shamed Beyoncé and Rihanna. Lily… More »

In case you missed the last five days: it was Britpop Week on Stereogum. We celebrated the 20th anniversaries of His ‘N’ Hers and Parklife, released a week apart in the spring of ’94. We also recalled Britpop’s B-list, watched the Live Forever documentary, drew a Damon Albarn & Noel Gallagher Timeline, reminisced about BritpopMore »

Anyone excited for Record Store Day? I’m in line outside NYC’s Other Music* right now and in 14 hours that glow-in-the-dark Ray Parker, Jr. 10″ is mine. You can check out the full list of exclusive releases here or just listen to SoundClouds of all the new songs here. In all seriousness, though, good luck… More »

There was a point during last night’s minimally audacious Rock & Roll ceremony — maybe halfway through the E Street Band’s interminable shoutouts — when I remarked to the guy from Billboard that this was the opposite of Coachella. But boy did that Nirvana coda make the whole thing worthwhile. It was surreal and thrilling… More »

We started off this week with news from Ultra Music Festival, which sounded like a bit of a disaster. Hopefully vibes are more mellow at next weekend’s Coachella (don’t forget your Hydroxycut). Hot off his SNL debut, rising UK soul singer Sam Smith was the subject of The Week In Pop. We looked at the… More »

This week we paid tribute to the late Oderus Urungus and celebrated 10 years of Madvillainy. The Black Keys returned with “Fever” and Black Lips’ Cole Alexander shared some interesting opinions on Lorde, Drake, and Macklmore. Chris reported from the front lines of the emo revival with a profile of Into It. Over It., who… More »

“And I swear that I don’t have a gun.”
— Kurt Cobain, “Come As You Are”

Despite the pledge in those lyrics that went around the world in the early 1990s, police in Seattle say that Kurt Cobain did have at least one gun.
That was the widely mocked lede (since removed)… More »

I bet you guys thought I was skipping Shut Up, Dude this week. I would never! Just because much of the music world has reconvened in Austin does not mean Stereogum’s commenters shouldn’t be celebrated and chastised in list format like normal. (Although, yes we skipped this week’s 5 Best Songs/Videos countdowns. Weak week.) Of… More »
