You're right. Sounds WAY worse.

Macklemore's versus sound like a poor man's version of Thrift Shop.

The beat and the chorus don't sound anything like Thrift Shop, thankfully.

I was a HUGE Macklemore fan years before The Heist came out, then he released songs like Thrift Shop and Castle and I wondered what the hell happened to him. When did he try to become Weird Al or a...

I didn't think it was terrible, but I just thought it was a letdown considering Californication, By The Way and SA were all very, very good. Just thought I'm With You was a step down. It's certainly...

I really enjoyed Stadium Arcadium. Most double albums have A LOT of filler and I didn't think SA really had any other than a few tracks here or there.

He wasn't really "new to the band" though. He had been a touring member for a while before I'm With You.

I really only enjoy like 4 songs on Im With You: meet me at the corner, Brendan's death song, look around and that Maggie song.

Yes, it was during their I'm With You arena tour in Cleveland. They pretty much played 18 of their singles. Such a bummer.

I still don't ever remember them saying it. Just did a Wikipedia check too and it doesn't say anything about them ever intending SA to be there last album.

I could be wrong, I guess. But I don't...

I've been obsessed with this band since I first heard about them in 2012 and since then they've easily been in my top 3 bands and I've seen them live four times.

While I have liked all 4 songs...

I really thought I'm With You was a HUGE letdown and I'm worried with any future material without John Frusciante.

The band's best work has always been with John. You can definitely tell his...

Did RHCP ever say they were retiring? If they did, I don't remember that.

My only issue with SRC is, they're normally the first to put up pre-sales (before Amazon or other sites) yet, always last to deliver. Several times, I've ordered pre-orders from them, then I'll tell...

Really happy for Jesse having a child and I think it's cool that Brand New has been touring so much this year. They finally hit up Cleveland last month for the first time in six years.

Man, I just pre-ordered that vinyl. Was pumped when I saw it for just 17.99 then they really get you with those shipping and taxes (ended up being $29). If they weren't my third favorite band right...

Yeah, I don't doubt that stuff happens at all. It's a shame that people just can't go to concerts to enjoy each other, feel safe and listen to music.

I don't know why, but I always cringe at the "tea parties and Twitter, I've never been so bitter" line on the Some Nights Intro.

Probably because I've never heard a band throw a social media site...

That's interesting.

Yes, I'm a man and like I said, I haven't been to a Warped Tour in 11 years. The way Buddy comes across in his comments make it sound like these bands and men in the crowds are publicly (sexually)...
