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

This week Dave Foley reminisced about funding Rilo Kiley’s 1999 demos and Joe Rogan weighed in on the Chainsmokers’ controversial Hamptons concert. Those are the only articles about NewsRadio cast members I have for you right now. I will let you know if Maura Tierney breaks her legendary silence about the new Fontaines D.C. album.

THIS WEEK’S 10 HIGHEST RATED COMMENTS

#10  Thin White Duck
Score:50 | Jul 27th

This is certainly one of the more specific, hysterical portraits of late capitalism of late.

Wow. Nice message to all the people in hospitals for Coronavirus, or people with a long recovery process. Sorry but this kind of selfishness just upsets me.

I appreciate that rather than trickling these out as interludes that we’d have to skip she’s put them all one album that we can just not listen to

I don’t think one fucking thing has changed. Not calling out any of the “indie legends” you referenced but I guarantee u whoever the equivalent of ‘avi buffalo’ (who???) was in the ~ 80s indie scene was doing the same + way worse. As were various outfits above and below that. Don’t hold up anything on a pedestal. That’s part of the problem.

Just support anyone brave enough to come forward. Now. Then. Whenever.

Consider: a drum sound so shitty that no one would want to download new Metallica songs on Napster.

They are. I have a 9-year-old daughter who’s into her.

I may have ruined this album for my daughter, though. I told her it’s Swift working with a band that me and her mom really like. Nothing will kill a child’s enthusiasm for something faster than learned that her parents like it.

Black metal guy thinks T-swift bit his album cover which also features a black and white photo of trees.

Watch out first year photography majors…cease & desists are in the mail.

Wow, mouth-fucking huh? Maybe I should go ahead and lower my musical standards and listen to this album after all.

Score:-28 | Jul 28th

So you just assume some bands are led by rapists in every era? And that possibility keeps you from holding any artist up on a pedestal? That’s a depressing thought.

I see a pattern here. Prop up “indie” artists and put them on a pedestal for a few years. Then report thoroughly and giddily on their “demise.” Scott and Chris, as a team, have created the “indie” Drudge Report. Congrats boys.

Btw, you could tell this dude was a pos a mile away when you saw his tiny little frame sing shitty falsetto

This is the worst piece of shit I’ve ever heard. It’s Justin Timberlake doing the Bon Iver impression for an entire album.

Goddamn. I want to listen to this . But I know that Kanye album is gonna drop any second and that’s obviously must listen music. What a damn conundrum. Oh wait. I got it. Gonna listen to the new Katie Dey and let these two egomaniacs for later. Jk jk jk. I’ll never listen to either. Ok. I’m awesome

I don’t know who I’m more disappointed in: my favorite investment bank CEO David Soloman, or my favorite musical artists The Chainsmokers.
