"Hear an anthemic new song called 'Anthem' which is a total anthem for anthems. #Anthem."

Jesus Christ, what the fuck is a "twinkle-rocker". What the hell are you talking about? Also, "anthem".

The fact that this is being called "Donutgate" makes me more sick than eating a stranger's licked donuts.

Not every song is an "anthem". That word gets tossed around here in a handful of posts just about every couple of days. This song is very, very good. An anthem, though? I'm not sure. Maybe try a different synonym for "good song" every now and then.

"Anthemic". That, or any other variation of "anthem", is this site's go-to when the writer can't think of anything else to write. Not every song is an anthem. Come on.

I dig it. I think Synthetica is pretty underrated, too. This is a good Monday.

I'm with you. It's not a man/woman thing; didn't even cross my mind. I just personally believe she sucks, and makes terrible music. I really don't know if her mission is genuine or not. It's a good cause, for sure. I'm just skeptical if her intentions are true. I'm skeptical if any pop star's intentions are true.

I think it's nice that she's all about causes and working with more respectable artists now, but I still can't shake my undeniable hatred for her. Like she really just fucking sucks. I can't see her doing this on her own; someone's gotta be whispering what to do in her ear.

I think the moniker "Billy Corgan" is available.

You know, a few weeks ago, I saw that Stereogum was hiring... I believe this is the outcome of that news. Amrit and other great past 'Gum writers have to be shaking their heads.

Sounds almost identical to the last minute or so of Wye Oak's - "Spiral". Which was also an adult swim freebie a couple years ago. It's still great, though.

It really has been a pretty awesome year for Charli. I agree that the lyrics are pure shit, but the melodies are crazy addictive. See: "Breaking Up".
