The tagline, “I belong to the blank generation,” became the battle cry for the CBGB’s punk rock crowd. The perfect angst anthem for self-designated outcasts.

It’s definitely a new sound, and has a more well-rounded feel than “Phoenix” and “Light Em Up”. I take back what I said about “Phoenix”- because this will be THE song of summer 2013. It has a hint of pop pizazz but is most certainly “indie” enough for the other fans. It just makes you feel happy, which is really nice
You simply COULD NOT listen to anything outside your scene. In an odd sort of gang mantality you all stayed the same in your quest to be unique. I missed out on alot of great music and still even tons of years later I am unable to allow myself to like alot of it.
I’ve been in quite a nostalgic mood, music-wise, so I decided to give a listen to the original Lion King soundtrack. It is the greatest opening scene to any of the films Disney’s ever done.
From what I can gather they were local heroes with a huge teen girl following around NYC in the 70s. Not quite the Trouser Press gang but more like neighborhood heroes. They had brains enough not to get too sucked up in things, cuz wait til you hear what’s up with them now.
am not a country girl- I freakin hate nature, but for some reason this same visual conjures up every late June. As a kid there were trips to the beach or the country but this image seems more like Kansas or something- no clue
The tune is being used in the new film Dark Shadows, starring Johnny Depp. So basically this is a film taken from a fabulous original with a soundtrack of copies of fabulous originals which means, ain’t nothin new here.
So what’s up with Notorious B.I.G.? I know he’s legend, I know he died young- that’s it. Til I was introduced to the song “Juicy” a story of the rise of a boy who went from nothing to wealth.
the slow tune could easily be qualified of ‘country’, but Beck’s vocals are definitively too familiar to be missed, although there is something about his voice that sounds a little different, is it the ageing?
I like this band a lot but there is at least one reason they don’t break pop and that’s because they don’t write pop. The song breaks here are constantly disrupting the flow of the song: it’s like they’re attentionally perpendicular.
“Black Treacle” doesn’t suck at all. Much more production buzz but vocally pure and vulnerable. Maybe Alex Turner got dumped by all those model types that were making him in to a fashionista instead of a rocker.
As if this masterpiece didn’t already have enough emotional buildup that’s so strong it’s almost painful to listen to, the last line always makes me teary-eyed. There’s a sinking feeling in my stomach each time I hear it or read it, because it’s so tragic and unbelievable.
This is a great slut rock song for party time. I suppose if I were under the influence of some intoxicant I would appreciate this more but the slow beat (intended to be sexy I suppose) makes me agitated
Almost like it was recorded in their garage. Not Dave Grohls garage, oh no no, I mean that retro sounding rock. I cant say I was blown away. I cant say I was impressed
In a total Justin Vernon’s ambiance, wearing wool/fur hats,the five guys of Miracles of Modern Science are sitting around a table lightened with candles, as they are singing a song mixing Bon Jovi’s ‘You Give Love A Bad Name’ lyrics with Bon Iver’s falsetto
It’s fascinating to watch because parts of it are funny, but then there’s more serious parts that really captivate you and draw you in. It’s ridiculously well done and one of the best music videos I’ve seen in a while.
Jon Brion can bring all the delicate acoustic guitar she wants, strip down the song as much as he can (the guy can do miracle), I still find Perry’s bluesy and crying voice forced and annoying.
The lyrics are beautiful, too. They’re just accentuated by the singer’s raw and powerful voice. The way the instruments support his voice really pulls the song together and makes it interesting to listen to
So then, since I am not a teenaged boy why do I like this ‘noise’ so much? I’m not sure but the sound of a proper scream can be liberating even to an old crow such as myself.
It features two runaway lesbian gangsters, played by Syd and actress Jasmine Flemings, armed to the teeth and greatly enjoying the killing and the robbing during their journey in the desert.
1,400 in attendance, Three million dollars earned and two lines sung. C’mon America, I beg you don’t let this be cool.
Shes the hoe hero and always came off a bit too prison yard for me. Yet in this video she comes across as a bad ass smart girl that you’d pretty much avoid in a hallway
The song has always held a special place in my heart because of the lyrics. It really is the MCR anthem to me, and it is truly symbolic of how things get better, times are rough, but you just need to remain yourself.
It’s a huge step up and is the best song that D.R.U.G.S. has ever released. For the first time, I am appalled and stunned by the perfection and how I can feel the effort they put into the song. I’m totally blown away.
