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

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 shows in London and Paris. He also found time to help with chart topper Big Sean’s great new video and lecture Oxford students about high fashion. The album should be out soon. Will it drop before Kendrick’s?

Hmmm. This kinda surpasses my usual summer barbecue racial epithet limit. There’s gonna be a lot of awkward “I’m sorry!” grimaces and shrugs to my neighbors as they cover their their kids’ ears. The kids will be crying, but that will probably have more to do with the heavy layer of charcoal smoke that’s just sitting there on that hot and windless days. I’ve thought through this moment a lot.

Reminds me of when my dad told me “rap is not music.” Very informed opinions from highly relevant old dudes 10/10.

We need to accept the possibility of a headline so accurate we don’t understand it yet.

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

Michael Bell | Mar 5th Score:-15

Like, I get it, I guess, but I kinda have to agree with #slownewsday. Granted, I’m not their PR person so I can say it a little more freely. How is McDonald’s supposed to know who will and won’t play for free? SXSW is a convoluted mess and frankly neither party needs the other one. My bet is some band will be on that stage and they’ll have an audience. I hope they do well. But hey, Ex Cops get to feel like fugazi for a day or two, I hope that works for them too. Whatever.

People actually buy this moron’s music?

#3 Cerebus | Mar 3rd Score:-27

I can’t believe that anybody who posts at the ‘gum was dumb enough to give that an up vote. You do realize that Isis, the band, was not named after ISIS, the Islamic extremists, right? Like, come on people, really?!

#2 scruffy | Mar 2nd Score:-29

That’s a sad existence. You don’t really belong on Stereogum, do you?

#1 Cerebus | Mar 3rd Score:-29

It’s not funny. The fact that anybody thinks it is funny is the very reason why there IS a band with the name Viet Cong.
