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

Did you guys know that I run Stereogum’s Instagram and that it’s good and fun? You can follow that here for dank content that didn’t really have a place on the site, especially this week as we were rushing out features on folks like Braid, The The, BlocBoy JB, Turnstile, Wye Oak, Lady Gaga, Kittie, and the Sword before Stereogum becomes 24/7 Cardi B.

My previous post on the topic still stands.

I’m sick of these assholes that assume they can talk shit without recourse, and then think they can clean it up with a forced and fake apology when the chickens come home to roost. Dude can eat a dick, fuck him.

Oh fuck that bullshit, we all know he meant what he said the first time. He’s been peddling this evil, far-right garbage for a long time now and is only backpedaling because it might impact his album/concert sales.

Aww Katy, always the bridesmaid. This would be impressive, but I saw Taylor detach her jaw and swallow an entire chicken whole just last week.

Don’t downvote me because they had a dream and failed to deliver just because some Bitch they don’t like arrived on the scene and were about to steal the spotlight from them. Blame her.

“But as Donald Glover’s music career can attest to, if you do two things poorly but do them both at the same time there is a sizable segment of the public that will pretend you’re doing something great.”

The song is inarguably great. The meme is offensive. There, I said it.

Oh hey, I have a Kittie story!

In 1999, I was 16 and playing in a high school band with my best friends, and we got some comp CD that had “Brackish” on it. I am not sure if we actually really liked the song, or if we were just teenage boys excited about the prospect of meeting some girls who played music, but we drove two hours upstate to Albany, NY to see them play in a small club.

Mercedes and Morgan’s mom was there selling merch and they were all really excited that someone had come out expressly to see them (their album wasn’t even out yet). We were given some free t-shirts, ate some pizza with the band, and we got Mercedes and Fallon’s AIM screen names.

I wore my Kittie t-shirt onstage a few months later and the photos are still online and I have some friends who still mock me for it.

Pretend this story has an interesting ending. Bye
