Jay Versace also gets to claim being one of the few people to go up against Freddie in a roast battle and hold his ground. "You got the same ears as your dog" is game over. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJ3DHatN81s

The Lodge Room is absolutely sick as hell, and one of the LA venues I'll miss most until we get concerts back. Saw Deerhunter, Charly Bliss, and DIIV there in the span of a year. Now I'm praying that PG plays there when things re-open.

The best part about a Gorillaz collaboration is that you can never say the featured artist "doesn't make sense," because they've made enough space in their universe, creatively, for essentially *anyone* to make sense.

I'd argue that Rock Band's culture influence on the youth of the 2000's was an absolute net positive.

Upvoted for the most important (correct) placement – La Loose #1! Definitely an outlier stylistically but, for my money, the best melody she's ever written and one of her best vocal performances.

TVOTR still best band of the 00s. (Yes even better than *them*, whomever your *them* is.) Song is pretty good! I still think Tunde, Kyp, and Sitek are at the peak of their powers when they play off each other. Hopefully the fact that Tunde is still getting weird with it on his own means they would still have gas in the tank if they put out another record together.

Just so long as he doesn't walk back wanting to write a pro-America version of "Born in the U.S.A." because that's still one of the funniest things ever and I won't be able to talk about it at parties anymore.

I was at the Dallas show where it was clear most of us were pretty lukewarm on it all, but then some chud in the crowd straight-up BOO'd her. Once Danny came out, before starting a single song, he took the time to shame the boo-er, who ended up leaving the venue as everyone cheered. Real solid moment from Danny.

All great picks. I'll also probably be putting the Bad Bunny album (first of two) in my Top 5. Incredible pop songwriting. Such a great entry-point into the really colorful world of latin trap that's exploded lately.

This is exactly why he disappeared. His frat boy fans don't give a shit about abuse accusations, but frat boy fandom is fickle anyway. The people who *would* have made up a more lasting base for him (read: ones with souls) are the ones who were rightfully pretty turned off by this.

I still don't know which is my favorite from FTBC, but I think Heavy Balloon is a better pick than The Other Sight giving a best new track to Cosmonauts, which may be the poppiest, but probably not even in my top 5 from the record. It's probably Relay for me, though I get Heavy Balloon was more selected as the best representation of what's great about the whole thing.

This usually doesn't bother me, but knowing all his love songs are about Jameela "reproductive rights are just like tenant evictions" Jamil makes buying into the idea of his lover being "precious" just a tad challenging.

If we're talking about the very specific criteria of "inconsequential album artist with a slew of hits who could potentially be more fun than Kendrick in a live setting at this particular moment in time," am I crazy for thinking 2 Chainz has a genuine claim to this?
