Yeah tough call. Ultimately this gets into the politics of money and changing hands; If you really dig into it, there's some corruption/screwed up politics in every dollar every single one of us...

Well that presupposes that no one wants to hear those songs while also presupposing that Riotfest was booked as this "Hey, remember the 2000's?" fest it is right now. Considering how non-scene...

Well, clearly that hope can be dashed right away. Why would they even bother playing Riotfest so close to the release of an album if they don't intend to play any songs from it?

Kind of a bummer that they didn't put them in the right key. It's two different keys playing at once. I know people do that a lot in mashups but it always sounds lame to me.

Yeah cause they made so much money and pleased so many fans making steadily stranger albums. Actually they didn't; Infinity sold about half FUCT. Folie, significantly less than Infinity (I don't...

Holy shit this is insanity. Like, I'm not overly psyched on where government is right now either but this is just outright bonkers. I hope my punk rock politics don't age as poorly as his...

Context: They've been pretty open about the fact that the last two tours were brutal/heavily "Play TTTYG!"/booing new songs. I think even if it was a small percentage of the audience, it must have...

Totally fair enough. Can't really disagree with any of that.

Definitely. And I think it's lazy to count anybody out: For all we know, Wentz could have a whole second career here...I just think it's really unlikely and therefor not a "Money Grab," is all I was...

I love how people say stuff like that whenever somebody makes something dancey/"Poppy" but I defy you to show me the cash to grab...Have you heard a Black Cards song on the radio? Does it sound like...

Dilla. Such a legend. Not many producers/musicians of our generation have made as much of an impact on such a broad scope of popular music, let alone posthumously.

Don't think that was ever the issue (at least according to the original blog post). I think it's a weird time to be a musician. Back in the day if people hated your record they just didn't buy it....

Time has been kind to that record. I don't remember the reviews (aside from Rolling Stone) being so favorable right out of the gate (I remember a particularly scathing one in one of the British...

Love this band. Digging this song. Hoping there's some more big/anthemic stuff on the next record...loved how large and sweeping their last record was.

I don't think they're saying "You're not allowed to enjoy it." They're saying "It's probably a poor choice for an anti-union politician to use this (at very least subtextually) pro-union song in a...

Oh I definitely agree. "Dream Brother" is probably my favorite off "Grace." "Lover You Should've Come Over," and "Everybody Here Wants You," are brilliantly well written. I just think people notice...

This is pretty rad. I think for the band this must have been super fun to record but as a listener it's kind of less exciting (as a recording, I can imagine that this would be killer live). I guess...

Re-read his post. I think you missed the point. Obviously so if he's working with Escape the Fate and All Time Low.

To my approximation a lot of people read the headlines from really crappy sources...
