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

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 not, you can livestream Coachella here. Tame Impala are on tonight at 9:15PM PST.

What’s oppressive about this particular song, though?

Kevin Parker identifies as a man. He is saying he, as a man, is flawed. I don’t get what’s oppressive about that. It’s not an artist’s responsibility to adopt a universal point of view with their art. It’s also cool as a listener to not identify with the song, but I don’t see anything “wrong” with the song itself.

The song is fine sound-wise.

I’m guessing “All That” really struck a chord with Kenan.

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5 letsplaytwister | Apr 6th Score:-10

Exactly, he’s playing the sensitive dude saying, “Hey baby, I’m just a wee little man, I can’t help it.” It’s not about machismo, it’s about reinforcing idiotic gender stereotypes.

#4 letsplaytwister | Apr 5th Score:-12

Yeah fuck this shit. This song seriously sours me on this album. I wish it was a joke. It’s not even a very good song otherwise. But yeah that whole “I’m a man, I can’t help it, boys will be boys” thing is such bullshit to the millionth degree, and I can’t believe this is actually a song a great songwriter like Kevin Parker actually wrote. Ugh.

#3 almotasim | Apr 8th Score:-23

“That’s without even mentioning Courtney Love is her mom.” Caitlin, what kind of info or insight do you have to write such a terrible thing about Courtney’s role as a parent? What an unfortunate thing to say.

#2 arsetothat | Apr 9th Score:-25

“Luckily the interviewer had a pretty specific definition right on hand, not sure I could’ve described punk that succinctly off the cuff.”

LOL, yeah, no shit, Caitlin. Muzik iz Haaard.

#1 miss_merboy | Apr 5th Score:-31

“cause i’m a man, woman / don’t always think before i do / that’s the only answer i’ve got for you”

NOPE. NO NO NOPE. FUCK THAT.
