gay-bashing and all-round nastiness.
Whaddya think of this Macc Lads classic?
Just wondering, like.
hating da whites?
so I don't really like it, no.
also i hate white people.
That OFWGKTA thread has been going for months and you only voice your opinion now?? Did you only notice their lyrics when Tegan and Sara posted about it?
First heard it a few months ago (I think I posted in the OMGWTFL thread too) and found it a bit silly.
Then that story from HRO popped up about them two beefing off about it and I thought "what's that song about hating gays" and remembered.
So I checked it out and thought of how it's funny that a toothless alchy from Macc would offend people where some kid from America doing something more offensive makes them scratch their chins and contemplate things and feel cultured and stuff.
People can't really reply to this thread because they're damned if they do and if they don't. They know how hypocritical it would be to call something like this out as unacceptable, while getting really excited about the Breath Of Fresh Air that is some little kid saying naughty words.
this is a really great thread.
by Odd Future or Tyler The Creator in all this time? I think it's quite an achievement myself.
Don't really care anymore, tbh. Mark Richardson wrote a pretty balanced article on the topic:
."Since I believe some of my experiences with music have not just made me happier but also have made me a better person, I've wondered whether the opposite could also be true-- that music could lead you in the direction of destructive behavior. Seems logical. And when I think of something like Swans, where bleak music about suffering could help lift me out of a depression, or certain rap songs that tap into memories of aggressiveness and violence that feel very far from who I am and how I want my life to be, I realize it's never going to be an easy question to answer. I'm not sure I could ever explain how it works, at least not completely. But when I'm tuning into the rage and fear and catharsis behind my headphones it feels like it's all there for a reason, like there's a desire that needs to be explored and music creates a sheltered space for it to happen".
