  • ReturnToRock Celine in 98 released the only song (one of the few pieces of media) that I still muster the word 'hate' for. I H A T E that song. 'Walk out of a room if I hear it playing' levels of hate.
    March 13 09:15 AM
  • ReturnToRock Just catching up on PGTY, and I want to say- I know it's six virtual years away still, but THAT SONG by Celine Dion better be your #1 Worst of 1998! You know the one.

  • burneroftheSell Lamp the band vs. Lamp the haruka nakamura song (og version, no nujabes) this is a very important personality test

  • ArsMoriendi I see that you 3.5?d Godcaster?s first album. Any plans to check the new one?
    March 10 03:37 PM
  • garas I wish I could have a big Sabbath fan co-worker too! I agree that the '80s were full of great singers, but for me Dio was always worthy for the hype. His voice is so... powerful and so charismatic - I love "Children of the Sea" the most from that album because of that. But it's just personal preference :]
    March 7 12:06 PM
  • garas Oh, a rating on Heaven and Hell!! I love that record, and it was a huge grower for me - maybe that 3.5 of yours will see some bumps too.
    March 6 10:02 PM

    December 26 01:33 AM
  • PitchforkArms Hey dude not sure if you guys are able to make any edits on the Top 50, but ai had one clarifier on the Somewhere South of Here entry. My last name is ?Wagel?, not ?Wegel? (:Thank you for the detailed (and flattering) writeup. We?re glad that someone with the acumen of yourself (and various other respectable folks around here) have taken a liking to it.Cheers!
    December 23 02:57 PM
  • Dewinged Dude I LOVE them. So sad they're not anymore. At least we have AA=. Also if u haven't checked that dig (it's a live album) do it cause it's STACKED.

  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Considering how notoriously homophobic early hip hop was in general it?s quite the feat that they made a song in ?91 so homophobic that they were barred from including it on their record, Jfc
    July 10 06:42 AM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Lmao Bobert just brought up Georgie Porgie on the low end theory thread and I just realized pieces together what you were talking about when you asked me how offensive disliking tribe was compared to that. I had never heard about this song and thought you were talking about the nursery rhyme and was so confused ?

  • ReturnToRock I'm up to 1966 at this point, and I find that while the early years of the charts were varied and kind of bonkers, where literally anything could go to #1, once the Beatles, the Beach Boys and the Stones come around, things get a whole lot more predictable (though also undeniably better.) Still a few dark horses in there, though... (I mean, the New Vaudeville Band and Staff Sgt Barry Sadler? WTF?)
    June 10 03:27 PM
  • ReturnToRock Hey man, I wonder if you're familiar with Stereogum's feature, The Number Ones. It reminds me a log of your lists.
    June 4 09:48 PM
  • JohnnyoftheWell Your ~Random album is Solid Space - Space Museum! You have until June 28th to submit a review, hit up the thread with any questions. Good luck! :]:]
    May 28 04:06 AM
  • DavidYowi The band I feel is especially masculine is Neurosis. That could largely be due to Dave Edwardsons vocals, but they are a very muscular band. Even when they're brooding, it still feels very rugged. They're what I think of when I imagine what vulnerable masculinity looks like
    April 18 11:16 PM
  • DavidYowi Tame Impala is an interesting choice! I can definitely sense that with Why Wontt They Talk to Me? and especially Cause Im A Man, though I do think there's a self deprecating quality to Kevin Parkers lyrics that makes it work
    April 18 11:10 PM
  • DavidYowi Your posts on The Great Southern Trendkill got me thinking: what?s a band that you think is especially masculine?
    April 18 07:21 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Check GET DUSTED! by Robovine, from 2019

  • JohnnyoftheWell oh holy s*** sorry did you send it to me?!!! if i flaked sorry that 's totally my bad will upload asap this evening have to run rn sorry work stuff but will check after hope this makes sense i am a shi.t human
    April 15 04:15 AM
  • DavidYowi The album is great! Love the drumming and Baisley is coming into his own vocally. Green drags in the middle, but I definitely prefer hard rock Baroness to metal Baroness, and this is the first big step in that direction
    April 8 05:57 PM

    December 31 06:46 AM
  • ArsMoriendi You've heard Ween's collab album with Boredoms right? Z-Rock Hawaii?
    December 30 07:56 PM
  • YoYoMancuso hey man thank you so much for the bandcamp support! means a lot, very generous of you
    December 19 03:49 AM
  • ReturnToRock Also, it's by the same guy who discovered Genesis (and 10cc, and the Bay City Rollers) and produced their first album, 'From Genesis to Revelation'. Two years later, he wrote and produced this. Are you crying yet?
    December 11 10:28 AM
  • ReturnToRock Yeah, I mean - I know ska and mod were huge in Britain at the time, but...it was 1971. The Beatles had only been split for a year. The Who were at their peak. The Rolling Stones were getting there. And people let THIS chart? I'm not even mentioning hard rock and metal because those were still niche, but yeah...the best decade ever for British music had just ended, and THAT song go to number 3 on the singles chart. NUMBER 3!!! A NOVELTY SONG!!! HOW?!?!*Deep breath* OK, rant over.
    December 11 10:25 AM
  • ReturnToRock Can't wait for you to get to 1971 and listen to this song I just discovered, Johnny Reggae by The Piglets. It's...certainly a song that was recorded and commercially released by humans (or were they?)
    December 10 10:23 PM
  • Minushuman24 No worries about "late", you said something to me, and that just means a whole lot to me man, thank you. I am trying, even if it feels like I'm failing sometimes.

  • letsgofishing Just want to leave a note that your popgoestheyear series is about my favorite thing anyone has ever done on this site. Thank you for such an insightful journey so far.
    December 4 04:00 AM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Hey man, i know we are in a pandemic and money is tight for everyone but I put together a gofundme for minushuman. I dont know if you saw his list but he suffered a pretty brutal loss this weekend and I thought maybe we could all chip in a few bucks and help him out with groceries or rent or whatever this month while he works through this tough time. If you can donate a few bucks and share this with some other users to help spread the word that would be awesome: https://gf.me/u/y743c5

  • SitarHero Big ups for that Exemption rec bud! Digging it hard. Definitely rougher around the edges than Moon Tooth in terms of songwriting and hooks, but I really like that '90s psychedelic power-pop direction they were taking it with the vocals.

  • gaza were good s*** hey, check out all their stuff when you get a chance. They probably offer more anti-religious commentary than political but they're both cognate really. I'm not sure how prevalent religion and Mormonism is in SLC but it certainly pissed these guys off lol

  • miketunneyiscool123 I actually wrote that post on Futures shoutbox because the dude's a ****ing dick (no regrets). Good luck not getting sucked into his wankery.
