    Oh, I forgot. Thanks for reminding me that the universe started with the pilgrims landing in Massachusetts and that dinosaurs aren't real and the pyramids were invited by the Jews to make us feel sorry for them.

    Abe Vigoda
    Amy Winehouse
    Animal Collective
    Architecture in Helsinki
    Beirut
    Bob Dylan
    Bright Eyes
    David Bowie
    The Decemberists
    Hercules and Love Affair
    Hot Chip
    LCD Soundsystem
    Lou Reed
    Of Montreal
    The Ruby Suns
    Talking Heads
    Tom Tom Club

    WOW! LOOK AT ALL THESE RACIST BANDS! ZOMG! THIEVES! MAKE UP YOUR OWN WHITE PEOPLE MUSIC, YOU DISRESPECTFUL WHITE PEOPLE! And this, just off the top of my head! I bet there's LEGIONS of racists out there. Let's send Obama to burn them at the stake.

    Come on. All popular music holds it roots in African music; after all, they were the first cultures to really dabble in musical exploits. Blues, rock and roll, jazz, soul, funk, decidedly "rhythmic" whathaveyou, tropical music---all this stemmed from distinctly African or African American music. So, to claim a band is "stealing" a style from a culture or being "racist" is beyond ignorant; it's plain stupid. Read a couple fucking music history books, you fucking morons.

    [/rant]
    For the ten thousandth time, there's a difference between influence/dignified appropriation/universal roots and Vanilla Iceism. Yeah, all popular music has roots in African music, but not all popular music features douchebag singers singing in fake accents.

    I don't buy it. This sounds like a four piece band version of white people can't/shouldn't rap.
