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

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

Today we spent a bit of time looking back, since tomorrow is the 20th anniversary of notable albums by Tool, Cannibal Ox, Weezer, and Missy Elliott (and Depeche Mode and R.E.M.). We also tracked down Kreayshawn for the 10th anniversary of “Gucci Gucci” and visited the ’90s with Juliana Hatfield. But! It’s New Music Friday, too, so there are new songs out from Dixie D’Amelio, Bella Poarch, and Dita Von Teese. You can find probably find those somewhere!

Scott, instead of making an edit button, has poured Stereogum’s vast resources into time travel, allowing the writers to travel into the future and send their past selves copies to mull over for years, or decades at a time. In this particular instance, Ryan received Daddy’s Home for his 17th birthday and has been quietly contemplating it since.

Don’t ask me how I know this information🤫

Also,

It’s artisanal farm-to-table gourmet bubblegum.

“Foolish Beat” sounds like an extremely gifted teenager’s attempt to write her own version of “Careless Whisper.”

are excellent examples of why I look forward to this column three times a week.

“Dirty Diana” I consider to be a degrading song title, so lets notch it up with some empowering women figures, with two Runaways on this week Hot 100. Must be played LOUD>>>

THE ULTIMATE FEMALE CREDIT DAY
I’m SO EXCITED for this day to finally arrive!

Let’s just get it out there:
1) DEBBIE GIBSON is the FIRST FEMALE listed as the SOLE PRODUCER of a #1 song using her own name!
2) DEBBIE GIBSON will be the FIRST FEMALE listed as the SOLE PRODUCER of 2 #1 songs!!
3) DEBBIE GIBSON is just the 12th sole female songwriter will be the 1st FEMALE listed as the SOLE SONGWRITER of TWO #1 songs (and just the 12th Sole female songwriter of a #1!!!

That’s just historic shit. And all as a Teenager.

Back in Virtual 1986, I realized how few females were credited as producers on #1 songs.
At the time it was just three. Gladys Knight, Roberta Flake, and Barbra Streisand. Each had one, though Gladys and Barbra were “co-producers” and strangely Roberta credited herself as the pseudonym “Rubina Flake” because wasn’t self-confident enough to have her own name on it.
Carol Bayer Sager became the next female co-producer, and the 1st female with 2 co-producer credits.
Madonna has become the all-time (so far) most credited co-producer on a #1 song. So far, virtually she has 4.

More females will follow, but “Deborah Gibson” will have gotten here first.
This is pioneering stuff, and great trivia.

Is she really one of our best guitar players though? The answer is abso-fucking-lutely not. This type of hyperbole is what drives me mad on this site e.g. “Janet Weiss is one of the greatest drummers ever” Fucking save it.

All these comments in reply to mine prove my point. You all take this shit too seriously when really all the words you vomit out could be summed up in a gif.

I’ll defer to my mom for her opinion on Debbie.

I’ve been reading for a while how the comments in The Number Ones are excessive and I guess I had to see it for myself.

I agree that comments from The Number Ones should be exclusive from the week’s Shut Up Dude of best and worst comments. It’s like there’s a group of self-professed music historians who wake up at the crack of dawn to write longwinded comments that aren’t very interesting or funny or at the very least, a bad hot take that can be downvoted and mocked.

THIS WEEK’S EDITOR-IN-CHIEF’S CHOICE

  Thin White Duck
Score:30 | May 13th

I interviewed Andrew W.K. for a college comedy paper and the *bit* I was doing was to ask asinine questions with a completely straight face like “what is the best marshmallow in Lucky Charms” and he sat there with me for about 10 minutes and answered every stupid question with complete sincerity and genuine enthusiasm, to the point that I almost wanted to apologize for wasting his time. Amazing interview, I thanked him profusely. Not a bad word will you hear from me about Andrew W.K.
