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

I’ll let you guys in on a secret ’cause I like you and it is that on Monday we are announcing A 3rd Stereogum Christmas Show. So if you wanna make plans to be in the NYC area on 12/6, we could get a commenter meetup going. If you want. No pressure. We could just as easily give barrels of free eggnog to another website’s commenters.

Yeah I’m thinking I’ll throw that in when something notable got boxed out. Won’t write an essay or anything but it kinda helps me situate a song historically.

I support Colin’s right to take a knee during the National Anthem and consequently I also support my right to take a dump during this Maroon 5 halftime show.

This was a good read, but this song is hokey and boring, with some hacky musical-theater style writing in it. “That Billie Joe never had a lick of sense…pass the biscuits please!”

He can’t like it that much when he’s sober!

Score:-19 | Oct 13th

The line up this year kinda sucks actually. Way too many mainstream bands. Only one worth seeing is Shellac. Another festival that used to be rad going down the drain like FYF. Sad.

Come on! There’s no way that track is a 10. I have my suspicions (when the stars are in position) that Tom may’ve been drinking while writing one or two of these Number Ones. Music and alcohol is a great mix, and it may’ve influenced his scoring.

So, in short, Tom was drunk while scoring Ode To Billie Joe. 😀

10???

No way is that track a 10. It’s a good track, but it ain’t a 10. 6 max.
