My senior year of high school I was Benny Southstreet in “Guys and Dolls”, who in the dialog leading in to the song “The Oldest Established” introduces all the various gangsters/chorus members as they come on stage to perform the number. Since it was the last night of the show, and I had like two weeks left in school,…
God damn What a Time to Be Alive is good. I never realized hearing Mac McCaughan scream “I HOPE YOU DIE SCREAMING” was something I needed.
Fuck yeah, De La Soul in general and “The Magic Number” in particular!
Fall Out Boy has transitioned from making pop-punk music I don’t care for to making cheeseball songs that will be played a million times during the NHL/NBA playoffs that make me yearn for the sweet release of death.
So Balki and Cousin Larry hilariously struggling against the wind and navigating that revolving door is no longer an accurate depiction of Chicago life?
Trump doesn’t care about chickens. He just wants to reverse everything the black guy did.
This feature brightens my day every year, as the cumulative effect of reading all these names in a row ensures that something is going to set me off. This year, I lost it at “Wake Me Up When ‘Wake Me Up When September Ends’ Ends (Nicole’s Song).”
Yay, I love this feature. Stumbling across it is how I discovered the AV Club back in 2011.
Sad to see a respected journalist robbed of all credibility. Well, off to cable news with you, Ryan!
I’m in band called Dynamite Thunderpunch. This year we released a post-apocalyptic spaghetti western concept album called Coyote Gunfight and, honestly, articles about dumb band names are the only press coverage we could ever hope for
Me, mostly; that I like a band called “Witch Vomit” makes me question a lot of life choices.
You are, Kyle, and Choo-Choo is on the phone with Witch Vomit as we speak, informing them of your serious slight.
The writeup for “Spirit of the Beehive” deserves a goddamn Pulitzer welded to a Presidential Medal of Freedom.
It was nice of Eddie Pepitone to pose for Chained to the Dead’s album cover.
Again, nothing will ever beat “My Penis is Made of Dogshit.”
If New England Axe Factory’s album title is not “Axeachusetts”, then fuck everything!
This is probably my favorite AV Club thingie.
“Superchunk made a secret hardcore record” is one rad as fuck way to start my Wednesday.
Maria Bamford deserves all the things.
