She's like the baby boomers who won't shut up about how proud they are of the 60's and 70's music they grew up in. Well guess what assholes, you now epitomize everything your musical heroes hated! And Kurt Cobain would think you're a disgusting, fascist pig Ivanka!

They definitely leaned way more punk than Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden who were more influenced by classic rock and heavy metal.

Yes, but the filler on Sung Tongs is tougher to wade through. Leaf House, Who Could Win a Rabbit, Winters Love, Kids on Holiday, Sweet Road, We Tigers are all some of the best songs they ever did. To many fans (me included), they were never better than on these songs. However, the other songs on the album are long ambient, meandering, and a little on the boring side.

Fuck this article. Robin Thicke, Blake Shelton, Billy Joel's Innocent Man, Shania Twain. Seriously who thought anyone would want to read about this garbage?

You're being generous with your "10 years." He's been insufferable for a long time. Just a quick look at his imdb, and the last decent role he did was Blow in 2001. Donnie Brasco was 1997 as was probably his last really good movie.

I'm a huge Steve Winwood fan. Love me some Traffic and Blind Faith. I'll skip the "Roll with It" years however.

So, the Cult and GnR are good and Tunnel of Love is fucking lame.

I was 14 years old in 1987 so I get that this music wasn't for me. But man, whenever MTV played "Tunnel of Love", "End of the Innocence", "Higher Love" and the rest of this bullshit I couldn't stand it. But I knew every lyric on Appetite for Destruction and The Cult's Electric.

This is the album where Springsteen, Don Henley, Bruce Hornsby, Steve Winwood were all making the exact same music. And it all sucked ass.

As tacky and shameless as this stunt with Pence was, Trump and the Republicans know that as long as Republicans are the party that respects the flag and Democrats are the party that supports kneeling, then they've won.

All Trump voters saw was Trump attacking a brown skinned foreigner and they'd prefer those types not be here anyways, let alone in the military.

Mutations, Odelay and Sea Change are where it's at (pun intended.) Those three are bona fide classics. I'm with you on the rest.

Anyone who saw him and the Heartbreakers live will tell you it's one of the best live shows they've seen. Tom Petty was incredible live. He has dozens of songs that are completely ingrained into the DNA of our lives, and when those songs come on the radio you probably change the channel because you're sort of sick of them, yet when you go see him play live they absolutely burst with energy and life. And you sing along with every one like they're your favorite songs. They kicked so much ass live it's not funny. RIP

Trump has offered his "warmest condolences" to the victims and families. Whatever the hell that is.

Show some fucking balls U2. Start a goddamn riot. The crowd at their show probably agrees with this bullshit. Call them out. Educate these ignorant idiots that pay hundreds of dollars for a ticket to your show.

I homebrew and mostly use all the typical west coast IPA hops so I'd be lying if I didn't say Cascade or something similar. But I have a soft spot in my heart for Saaz hops.

September 6, 2017 on Rostam – “Half-Light” (Feat. Wet’s Kelly Zutrau)
That Lissie song isn't good and is the only one of the bunch that just doesn't fit with the mood of the show. Sharon Van Etton was amazing, yet I agree with the top two. The Chromatics song is incredible. I can't wait for the damn album to come out.

I LOVE "Bleeding Heart Show." The drumming at the end is next level. Also, when Father John Misty says some indie music sounds like praise/worship music, "Bleeding Heart Show" is exactly what he's talking about.

I disagree. I think Rock and Roll has mostly run its course and has for the most part run out of new, inventive ideas. Look at Jazz. The lifespan of Jazz music being relevant was roughly 40 years. Rock music has lasted 60 some-odd years. There's only so much re-inventing and recycling of the same sounds and ideas before it wears thin.

August 24, 2017 on The Killers On Why Today’s Rock Bands Aren’t As Popular: “They’re Just Not Good Enough Yet”
Problem with MGMT is the singles from that album are still incredible but the remaining 2/3 of the album is a HUGE dropoff. You can't just put that album on at a party and let it go all the way through like you can with Is This It. The Vampire Weekend debut is the best example I can think of but that was 8 years ago.

August 24, 2017 on The Killers On Why Today’s Rock Bands Aren’t As Popular: “They’re Just Not Good Enough Yet”
I think what make The War on Drugs different is these songs are in major key. Seriously, there's not many bands out there doing this. Everything is minor key, pentatonic scale based in rock music these days. These driving, major key anthems sound unlike almost anything out there. It's why you hear The Hooters, or "Touch of Grey", or Springsteen and Mellencamp.

I agree. There's a real Radiohead vibe going on with the rhythm section on this album.

It seems the whole music zine industry just doesn't know what to do with traditional indie bands any more. Especially ones that have been around. This album is incredible and if it had come out in 2009 instead of Veckatimest it would be getting decade-end list love. I mean, I get that's the criticism right there that it isn't 2009 any more. But still, this shit is amazing. We're lucky to have Grizzly Bear.
