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

“No Tears Left To Cry” is my favorite song of 2018 (so far) and “Into You” was my favorite song of 2016, so perhaps I am biased, but Sweetener may be the year’s best concept album about Pete Davidson. Ariana Grande sounds like an angel singing words I can’t make out and the sleek production is surprisingly inventive for an A-list pop star. You’ll have to wait ’til next week for our review, but in the meantime we’ve got reappraisals of ’98 pop stars Korn and Kid Rock for you. If that’s not your thing, we can all agree on the awesome new tracks from Tirzah, Swearin’, Low, Fucked Up, and Cloud Nothings. RIGHT?

PROGRAMMING NOTE: Because y’all like to see behind the curtain, I will inform you that this was going to be a normal Anniversary piece tomorrow and I was going to write about Ariana Grande here, but I wasn’t able to obtain her album in time.

He’s a victim of being bad at fighting, that’s for sure. And don’t we fight wars because of our supposed ethical superiority all the time? The Right loves war. Anyway, Trumps basically turned American into a schoolyard fight. If his goons can’t win, maybe don’t pick a fight.

I’ll actually say it here. If a fan heckles and disrupts a punk show in support of our clown of a president, and the individual squares up and loses, the world is a better place for a brief moment in time.

“Now. Let’s get into this. It is, admittedly, generally bad form for musicians to leave the stage mid-show to attack the people who paid to see them. However! Anyone who goes to a punk rock show should have enough common sense to realize that it is generally not a good idea, from a common sense standpoint, to flip off an old punk. It is especially not a good idea to do this in defense of the current President of the United States. And if you have to call the police because someone who is 26 years older than you knocked you around at a punk show, I mean, I don’t know what to tell you.”

I agree with this completely. Don’t start no shit, won’t be no shit. Don’t act like a badass and then run to the cops when you get your ass beat for it. #markassbitch

Unfortunately Aretha Franklin has a well-documented history of disrespecting others. The Detroit Free Press published a large exposé in ’99 documenting her history of unpaid bills. In several of the instances she hired small businesses to do lavish catering or flowers, etc. and when she couldn’t pay they had to go out of business. Similar stories have continued to trickle out through the years and as far she continued the behavior until her death. Not every great artist or performer deserves to be lionized.

Hi everyone! I made a profile just to comment on this. Thanks for the shout-out, cokeparty. Chris, that’s my favorite SEE album too and that’s also the line-up of the group that I really fell in with. It funny, even after I’d joined the band, when I thought about “Southeast Engine,” it was usually with myself in the audience watching Rem, Leo, Torres, Box, Josh and Michael at Donkey. Fantastic writing as per usual. I always love seeing what you have to say.

So, “Sourwood” is pretty incredible, eh?
