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

SXSW is coming! Train! John Mayer! Counting Crows! We’re gonna party like soccer dads circa 2002. I can almost smell the BBQ stains on my tucked-in polo. (Actually, to be fair, I would totally see Counting Crows.) Stereogum’s decidedly more zeitgeist-friendly late night Range Life party will be announced soon. Hope you all can make it: then we can argue IRL about what exactly constitutes “selling out,” the funtroversial topic that brought us some of this week’s lowest and highest rated comments. Read this for further insight on the matter, then congratulate this week’s Shut Up, Dude winners and losers below…

#9 Michael_ | Feb 17th Score:20

For me, placing #10 means alot because it shows that the human element of posting comments is the most important. Logging into Stereogum and learning to use a PC or Mac and learning how to use wit is the most important thing for people to do. It’s not about being perfect. It’s not about sounding factually correct. It’s not about what goes on in a computer. It’s about what goes on in here *points to heart* and what goes on in here *points to head*.

#2 old thompson | Feb 22nd Score:41

I’m pretty sure it became acceptable after every other means of making money off of recorded music failed.

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5 rubberjohnny0829 | Feb 21st Score:-15

Fuckin Flog Gnow. The Golf Wang hooligans is fuckin up your school again! This track is sick guys. All you all dissing OFWGKTA all the time and then they come out with this to basically shit on your chests. Goblin is the best album of the decade and this is song of the year so far. 666 crew FTW!

Dave Payne | Feb 22nd Score:-22

So glad I wasn’t that into the tune. ‘Created for Converse’? For fuck’s sake, exactly when did this sort of thing become acceptable? “Do an advert and you’re off the artistic roll-call forever, your opinion is for sale, and every word out of your mouth is like a turd falling into my drink” – Bill Hicks

Blair Francis | Feb 22nd Score:-35

trying to down-vote my comment that James Murphy is a fucking sell out who should never have had any acclaim in the first place. i smelled this on him long ago when you were all pretending he was sincere and artistic. it’s all money to him and you’re all lemmings.
