Mark Kozelek Wants The War on Drugs to Fellate Him

October 7th, 2014

Nirvana’s Going to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame — Without Chad Channing

March 19th, 2014

There’s one big sticking for eligibility for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (outside of that whole, y’know, being good and important thing).

Better than OK Computer?

July 23rd, 2010

“You could call it their OK Computer. But it’s arguably better than that.“ I love Arcade Fire as much as the next guy, but whoa nellie, I don’t think Suburbs is worthy of that hyperbole. Of course, I’ve only listened to Suburbs once and OK Computer about a billion times, so I might be jumping […]
