THIS WEEK’S 10 HIGHEST RATED COMMENTS

#10  thelongspring | Jan 6th Score:25

Fucking millenials, man, with their Twitter and their Facebook and their having kids with a 48 year old man.

The police issue is out of control, but contrasting frustration and outrage with that against the accounts of 50+ women (some of whom did try and speak up beforehand, btw) is lazy and pathetic. Why can’t both things be screwed up?

Can’t wait for the penis speaker so my babies can start familiarizing themselves with Tool’s odd time signatures while still in sperm form.

#7  YouBeautifulBastard | Jan 5th Score:29

The notion of Bowie dropping his phone in the toilet is a reminder that even Bowie poops. Mind you, he probably shits out perfect spheres inscribed with incantations in cuneiform designed to summon Pazuzu, but he shits nonetheless.

You’re telling me there’s people who would rather cherish a moment than hear a new LCD Soundsystem album? That’s just nuts.

It doesn’t look like he wants to capitalize on the reunion, though.

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5  zz bottom | Jan 1st Score:-10

Um, says the balding white dude in a F21 pattern shirt. Kendrick Lamar is…I don’t know, it’s dangerous to hate on him in 2016 in front of other white people, so, he’s fine.

Scott Blank | Jan 2nd Score:-11

I’m relieved to hear the news that two adult male entertainers have potentially ended their beef. Perhaps in eleven months time you can compile a list of the most interesting or amusing such beefs of the calendar year and publish it on this website.

#3  Olivia | Jan 4th Score:-14

I liked The Strokes when they were about the music and less about the style. Now it’s just style with crap tunes.

I agree with you Tumpon.

@stereogum Your cynicism is unbecoming. Leave it up to your subscribers to form and share opinions on the music and videos you break.

#1  Tumpson | Jan 2nd Score:-21

Stereogum is like a mini pitchfork, anything mainstream they hate on, AHFOD was actually a really good record, some flat moments but it definetly stands out in there catalog. The fact Tom Brohan wants them to sound as dry and drab as Adele says a lot for this falling off publication with all the cohorts joining in like senseless minions. Coldplay has a fun and invigorating new record, if you guys are just gonna trash the album don’t post about it. Look forward to how they evolve four years from
now.

Definetly a bias with you all, cause also where was a Kid Cudi premature evaluation, fishy.

Oh but the vid is kind of stupid and not put together. Very lazy.

Dan Davis | Jan 7th Score:1

Wow – never heard of this guy which surprises me given I worship at the alter of Cuomo and 90s power pop in general. Just made a playlist of all 3 albums. Cheers SG!
