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

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 E. Germ like a couture squid.

THIS WEEK’S 10 HIGHEST RATED COMMENTS

#10 Tom Breihan | Jan 21st Score:26

Or to a thoughtful and considered review. Did you read my shit? I happen to think I’m pretty good at this.

#9 el goodo | Jan 22nd Score:26

I hear this opinion way too often. Fact: Kidz Bop 27 is not Kidz Bop 12, and it never will be. The sooner you get that through your head and learn to appreciate it on its own, the sooner you’ll be able to realize what an unmitigated triumph it is.

#8 mr. mayonaise | Jan 18th Score:27

“You know, its ironic that just at the point the lawyers and the businessmen had calculated how to control music, the internet comes along and fucks everything up. That almost seems like divine intervention. God bless the internet. I´ll still be there, waving a pirate flag.”
-Bjork

#5 LeMonjello | Jan 20th Score:30

Every award and recognition should start with pointing out who *actually* deserves the spot.

Posted in: Album Of The Week: Viet Cong Viet Cong
#4 world_on_a_string | Jan 20th Score:30

Can we start talking about how good this album is?

I’ll start.

This album is really fucking good.

An interesting choice, but don’t try this at home, folks: if your Vulnicura leaks, call the doctor right away.

#2 homesickalien | Jan 22nd Score:46

Totally overlooked that Kidz Bop 27 dropped…and here I was thinking Viet Cong was the start of a great 2015.

Nate Wagner | Jan 18th Score:65

Stereogum wants you to know that Spencer Elden wants you to know that he was the baby on the cover of Nevermind. Like, really really badly.

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5 jimmer | Jan 21st Score:-8

doesn’t the sexism go the other way, though? i mean, if kanye was getting all the credit for yeezus, weren’t there an equal number of slighted male musicians that weren’t getting credit?

#4 guiriguiri | Jan 20th Score:-10

How dare these misogynist scum not give it to Sleater-Kinney!

(this is how all AOTW comments are supposed to start no matter the content, right?)

#3 abat33 | Jan 21st Score:-15

Ahhh, the ol’ day-after-release PE. Nothing quite like beating the rest of the world to a knee-jerk reaction.

#2 thatruth | Jan 18th Score:-25

He died because he had AIDS. Not saying because he was gay he contracted this horrible disease, but you know it’s kind of what happens all too often in the gay community.

#1 blochead | Jan 22nd Score:-31

Since this thread has kinda turned into a “who’s who” of Stereogumland posters I thought I’d share this with the collective group….

Seeing all those Bjork articles in the top 5 most commented block makes me harken back to a time long ago and dear to my heart……..remember way back in, I dunno, November? When Kozelek and his antics took up damn near the entire top 5? Ahhhhhhhh…..memories. Sweet but oh so fleeting.

Mark, please tell somebody to suck your cock and let’s get that party started again.
