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

This week we talked about how much we love Girls, “Holocene,” and The Weeknd. You guys weren’t as thrilled with Feist’s comeback single, but she did receive a marriage proposal from one of you so not a total bust. After the jump, this week’s highest and lowest comments as chosen by YOU, plus editors’ picks from me and Amrit. (PS Next week we welcome two new full-time ‘Gummers — Tom Breihan and Corban Goble — to the team. Feel free to share in the comments what things you would like to see them cover (aside from Shabazz Palaces, which, YES OK WE WILL!).

Michael Robenalt | Aug 13th Score:8

what? a new generation of listeners find out about him from two of the biggest public figures right now? and the fact that they named the song in his honor and gave him a ft. credit just to make it easier for people to look him up?
yeah I bet he wished his talent could be discovered and appreciated by as little people as possible

Nicholas Brandt | Aug 12th Score:8

say what you will about excess in hip-hop, but if I was as rich as these dudes I’d be ripping up expensive cars and drive around like an idiot with models in the back for fun too.
