    There are many, many songs by Nirvana better than "Everlong."

    I think I've lost my ability to view "Everlong" objectively after hearing it 230948x on the radio over the years.

    Everlong is the only tolerable song by Foo IMO, and that song killed itself long ago...

    Pitchfork has no credibility other than sucking off radio head and sounding pompous

    Exactly. It's one of the best albums of the 90s, and for some reason never receives that recognition.

    I tried giving the foos a chance recently, but I didn't feel it. Same with Oasis' "What's The Story Morning Glory". I felt like I was being punished as each track progressed. I skipped "Wonderwall" because I do enjoy the song (its fucking poppy) and "Champagne Supernova" is the only other redeeming track to me as well.

    This holiday, I rented a car for a trip as opposed to my own and I got lucky with some free sirius radio. It was great, the "chill" channel had some really good tracks mixed up, the other dance stations cracked me up a little bit. "Electric Area" feels like an EDC trailer, and strangely they grouped country right next to the dance stations. The first one being Williams Roadhouse "something something" and it played some of the best country music I had heard in a while that wasn't Johnny Cash. While, the other country stations were that selection of country that I don't enjoy, I'm pretty impressed with sirius. The 80s nostalgia /new wave/whatever it is station was pretty wonderful too. Now I just need to see some actual pricing on it for my car....

    um...it's 2012. pop music artists have been sampling other hits for decades.

    Yeah, I understand sampling is one thing, but this is a little more then just "sampling"

    One month late, but I vote "refreshing hard rock." IMO, they're a band that's a lot easier to appreciate live. The singer has some crazy pipes and a mesmorizing stage presence; totally confident and free during the songs, but there's a 90s-grunge coyness/shyness in the way she interacts with the audience. Also completely devoid of irony, which I guess is refreshing.

    I found this acoustic video of theirs a year ago and I think it captures their essence a lot better than the music videos and recorded stuff:

    I haven't listened to it front to back yet, but most of the songs have popped up on shuffle. At this point in my still new familiarity with the band, it seems "Painbirds" might be one of their best songs, if not their best. The instrumentation on that track is just splendid, I love it.

    Do you ever have one of those realization moments, where it's not until you hear a band cover another band's song that suddenly you realize it might be your favorite song of theirs? I had this experience recently when I heard a band cover Dinosaur Jr.'s "In a Jar" on the radio.

    Didn't know where to post this, but listening to Codeine - The White Birch, and it is really great! I hear a lot of where Mogwai got some of their sound in it. Found out about it because Ben Gibbard said its the reason he is the musician he is today.

    Check out Frigid Stars, I think it's even better. I should have gone to see them at the Echoplex last week.

    Yeah I got that too! there was some recent reissue with those albums and the barely real EP. I was reading that they already ended their reunion...kind of a bummer.

    I went to their SF show. It was tremendously fragile but also really great. Both albums and the EP are essential.

    Did they close with "Broken-Hearted Wine" at that show as well, John? It summed everything up so perfectly.

    YOU GUYS. I listened to Black One by Sunn on 45 today rather than 33. Holy crap. It loses some of the ominous nature, but it becomes a really incredible Sabbath-y record. Bathory in particular becomes something I want to hear live at some point again. The difference is huge.

    Well, in 1994 nobody whatsoever had heard Spiderland.

    But I've not listened to Codeine in nigh on 6 years, so it barely even registers. I'll get back to you.
