Why the Slint and Fuck Buttons references though? Not exactly the bands that come to mind when one listens to Zu surely?
describe pop punk as counter-culture myself, but if youre getting at the rise of popularity in previously niche genres with a certain age of the western population then yeah, you're right.
FOB are the epitome of selling out from a relatively unpopular genre (vegan straightedge metalcore anybody?) to the most popular form of music in America, guitar rock/pop punk.
the points about the compression et al are really true, i wonder if this album will disenfranchise any of the fanbase (probably not) it doesn't seem to stick to the pop punk formula, but doesn't pull it off like "Infinity.." did
will be sweet.
surely Why?'s Alopecia is the best of the bunch? That album combined with Dosh's new effort and Anathello have made this a pretty good year for Anticon.
the bill was fucking win, how did i not know about this before?
Volcano! TVOTR and the surprisingly good Friendly Fires album is a pretty win month.
a special mike diver tribute? Not that im against any of the content now, but i think he deserves a mention for shaping and helping alot of people with good music, occasionally bad music and alot of board discussion. He was a good guy :)
it is a nine.
the new Fob isnt lol at all :(
Sounds like katy perry. Maybe ill change my mind when they release a video full of self parody and ironic cameos from P!ATD
devoid of songs, lyrics or the passion that once made him so compelling, oberst is well on the road to becoming devoid of merit. a true dylan.
is full on JEW throwback, minus the "loner" scenario.
bring back slipknot.
are gonna bring the metal. In the form of non-stop hair milling for half an hour. They pretty much are Dethklok the band.
I hope Slayer don't split up though, I think one of their biggest selling points is not having any of the drama that other premier metal bands in their league have.
yep yep yep.
im not MIA's biggest fan, i loved her first album when i was like 15, i think her second is okay at best, but this is a fucking cool thing to do. fuck you haters, get a life (or do a madonna and get an african child)
because youve heard it before?
Feadz, her dj/ex boyfriend (so possibly not her dj anymore) is sick as fuck.
I NEED TO GOOO!!!
Guess what happens next...
(I'll lol so hard if the kid ends up looking like Patrick Stump)
This band are fucking awful.
I never got to see them live either. GAY.
how winehouse's singing sounds completely different to her recorded voice. meh.
More braindamage fo meeee!
I thought alot of the songs were quite samey, 7 is aboot reet.
this band need more exposure. Biafra doesnt have his finger on the pulse, the man's an idiot, a wannabe Rollins (in terms of the stand up).
and no Far?
I misread Kevin Shields as Kevin Smith...
really fucking well on DIS.
upstaged him one time too many...
are mentioned here.
first impressions is their best album.
of the White Williams record?
was actually pretty good. i didnt like Cassadaga, lyrically and musically it was poor (except four winds).
Dont understand why he feels the need to make a new band though. Maybe he really is as egotistical as the rumours say.
Gallows AND Lethal Bizzle.
So much is wrong with that.
those dudes can afford some serious lawyers.
Yayo is a dickhead anyway, Game FTW.
this article was nearly harsh enough. Their lyrics have plagued radio and music for some time. EXPLANATIONS.
Surely as a lyricist hes extremely limited by being married so young?
Does he really need to namedrop Don Cab?
Seemed like a nice guy though.
will satirize indie rock touring like Oh What A Lovely War satirized world war one?
Spinal Tap 2 anyone?
Weiland was too emo for the job. And there werent enough guitar solos.
The irony is, Minus stuff is pretty much impossible to find on the internet.
