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

Tonight is music’s biggest night! It’s when 80% of Aerosmith will perform at a star-unstudded Grammys tribute concert in their honor! It’s always something with these guys! Should Boston’s feeble blooze-rockers let drummer Joey Kramer play with them? Probably. But, as much as I appreciate that his Rockin’ & Roastin’ Café has décor unlike any other coffeehouse, Kramer is a right-wing crank so I don’t have much sympathy. I do love this TMZ video, though. It’s the second saddest Aerosmith video I’ve ever seen.

Your best and worst comments of the week are below. I don’t like Aerosmith.

Let’s go for the hat trick. Maybe people feel it is too easy to crap on a pop (call her rock if it makes you feel better) star and they want to seem “open minded” by having positive things to say about this song. Like I said, it exists. It isn’t even bad. When you use the same template almost everybody else does, you just have to be competent. That’s good enough for 10 people (and counting, I presume).

Fuck yeah! I was waiting for my comment to be hidden so that people wouldn’t be triggered by reading opinions they don’t like. Was it because I don’t like the song or because of the shot at Stereogum? Or both?

It…exists. So, a perfect Stereogum song.
