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

By Scott Lapatine / April 19, 2013 - 5:10 pm
Along with a glimpse of Daft Punk's new suits and song titles, this week we finally got to hear "Get Lucky." Expectations for the full track couldn't have been higher and some of you were disappointed by it. Nevertheless it was a big week for the duo, and for their fellow countrymen Phoenix, whose performanceMore »

Coachella is here! And comment voting is back! Two reasons to celebrate for sure. Back in my day, Coachella was only one weekend, and bottled water was only a nickel. If you're in Indio, don't forget to drink water (and don't eat your wristband). Also say hi to Danny DeVito for me. If you're not… More »

It's Friday and our comment voting plug-in is still on the fritz. We should have a replacement up and running soon, though. For now we'll have to consider every comment made this week to be the best, and call it a tie. Congrats! In lieu of the list then, here's a look back at the… More »

This week you guys offered a lot of insightful discourse while knowing full well your fellow readers could not validate you with a THUMBS UP or DOWN. Yes, our comment rating tools are still missing (we're working on it, ETA IDK) so there was no highest and lowest rated comments this week. That means thi… More »

If you visited here Wednesday afternoon you saw all the post copy on the site replaced with 0s. That was not intentional. It was a malware attack. We've since fixed it, but had to disable comment voting (the plugin has known vulnerabilities we need to patch up). So this week's Shut Up, Dude rankings are… More »

This week's Shut Up, Dude comes to you from SXSW, where bands and brands play nice (mostly) for a marathon of free music and open bar. Stereogum's annual Range Life event goes down in a few hours at Hype Hotel -- we've got Sky Ferreira, Youth Lagoon, Kitty, METZ, Hundred Waters, Bleeding Rainbow, and MC… More »

It's been a great couple of days for ambitious music videos, with highly stylized clips from Phoenix, Beach House, and the Knife all arriving towards the end of the week. (Not to mention our most popular story of the week was a Biffy Clyro video.) In addition to posting all of those, we ranked ModestMore »

This week we announced the lineup to Range Life 2013, our annual event during SXSW. If you'll be at the fest, please join us for free Taco Bell. If you'll be stuck in a cubicle somewhere, Morrissey will probably have some beef for you. In addition to Moz, we had plenty to write about since… More »

Bonnaroooo. I've already booked my plane tickets and am looking forward to seeing "Weird Al" for the first time. Maybe of some of you are too. The Tennessee fest's lineup reveal was our most popular post in a week that also brought a new tune from Phoenix, reviews of Atoms For Peace and Nick Cave,… More »

We kicked off this week with a comment party for the Grammys, a pretty tame ceremony from which we managed to find 10 least boring moments. We heard new songs from Tyler, The Creator, the Postal Service, and the Strokes. We ranked the Who's discography and Tegan And Sara's 10 best songs. We gave Pissed… More »

Superblizzard Nemo is upon us, and hopefully you are reading this from someplace warm and dry, ears wrapped in My Bloody Valentine's tremendous return, m b v. That was our must-hear album for a busy week that brought news from Beyoncé, Vampire Weekend, and James Blake. We also ranked Sleater-Kinney's discography, deconstructed the Mars Volta,… More »

This week's Shut Up, Dude comes from lovely, almost-sunny Los Angeles, where last night we brought Merchandise to Sonos Studio. This year's Coachella lineup was released within minutes of the band's first song so it was a pretty buzzy evening. Are you going to Coachella? Are you so stoked for the reunited Stone Roses and… More »

This week we welcomed the return of David Bowie, who will release a new album in March. Too bad he won't play Coachella, even though someone wants us to think he will. We also ranked the Smiths discography; reviewed albums from Yo La Tengo, Christopher Owens, and Dropkick Murphys; and heard new songs from Iceage,… More »

And we're back. It's the first Shut Up, Dude of the year, and the first post of the day because something happened to our server last night. I don't know what, exactly, but we looked into the node rebuild status (?) and things are stable again. Thanks for bearing with us. Anyway. Earlier this week… More »


Shut Up, Dude: The 50 Best Comments Of 2012

As 2012 comes to a close, it's once again time to take a look back at the the past twelve months in comments. Tomorrow will be this site's 11th birthday and we could not have lasted this long without you. And Lana Del Rey. Without quick-witted and hot-headed responses to our posts, things around here… More »

This week we published our list of The 50 Most Anticipated Albums Of 2013 with My Bloody Valentine at #1. A dubious choice perhaps; but, two days later the band announced they'd completed mastering a new album. It was a Christmas miracle. Post-holiday, we listed the year's Top 30 Electronic Dance Tracks and 10 BiggestMore »

This week we highlighted a few of them, including our Top 40 Rap Albums Of 2012, your Top 20 Albums Of 2012, and the 10 Best Indie Christmas Songs.

This week we revealed the year's top metal albums (according to us) and the top tracks, videos, new acts, and crushes (according to you). We reviewed Big Boi, ranked MF Doom's discography, remembered Ravi Shankar, listed the Pretenders' ten best songs, and watched the surviving members of Nirvana jam with Paul McCartney. We also questioned… More »
