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

My favorite weeks on this site are those when our features cover a wide variety of genres. This was one of those weeks. We ranked Eminem’s catalog; we commissioned a death metal band; we surveyed the “Loser” drum break; we reviewed new releases from Benny Blanco, J. Cole, and Hand Habits, plus an old Sammy Davis Jr song so shitty that Sammy Davis Jr hated it; we reflected on 30 years of “Closer To Fine” and 20 years of Eureka; we talked to Yohuna; we reviewed a Travis Scott show; and we celebrated the genius of Mark Hollis. (We also announced this killer lineup for Stereogum Range Life in Austin next month.) Yes all types of music listeners are welcome at Stereogum.com, even fans of Imagine Dragons. Tune in next week for our Solange PE, the return of Stereogum Sessions, and ‘Weezer Take The Momo Challenge,’ probably.

“He says he wishes his fans wouldn’t idolize him: “I think everyone is the same, we all on the same path of life and one day you’re gonna fucking die, you gonna stink, and they put embalming fluid in you, and you might come back as a pony or something. “

I very much agree about not idolizing him, but it’s hard not to when he’s this fucking awesome.

Mixtapes. But I have to imagine they were probably mistakes too.

I sort of feel bad for Imagine Dragons, but then I hear one of their songs and remember why I dislike them so. I truly wish their singer could channel some of the emotion in his post into something listenable.

Sorry, Tom, but according to a file I saw on Limewire, this is Neil Young.

I downloaded it along with that Bob Dylan classic “Stuck in the Middle With You”.

Go home and create something. Destroying artists is somehow easier and more appealing than being an artist now and that’s fucking sad.

Protesting is probably the most mediocre thing someone can do but people just love to go along with the herd, they just can’t seem to help themselves. In the 1950s they would be lining up in the streets and spitting on black people.
