The Gaslight Anthem and Gallows are hipster bands now? This headline has The English Major's stink all over it.

All I can contribute here is that Dallas Green is a d-bag.

Apparently, so is Wade MacNeil. Classy move by Fallon to totally turn the other cheek and even start dropping compliments on him.

As of 12PM EST, MacNeil had yet to reply to any of Fallon's comments.

Well color me shocked.

Agreed on the classy move bit. He now occupies the high ground.

I seem to recall a tendency of his to fark up headlines in, for his name, a hilarious fashion.

Tweets? Meh, I'm not impressed.

I have three unreleased recordings of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young fighting backstage in the dressing-room of the Fillmore East.

*adjusts hipster fez*

Elvis_Bogart: Who the hell is "Steel Dan"?


Fun fact, Steely Dan the band named themselves after a strapon dildo in William S Burrough's book Naked Lunch.

Mary is strapping on a rubber penis. "Steely Dan III from Yokohama," she says, caressing the shaft.
"What happen to Steely Dan I?"

"He was torn in two by a bull dyke. She could cave in a lead pipe."

"And Steely Dan II?"

"Chewed to bits by a famished candiru in the Upper Baboonsasshole. And don't say 'wheeeeeeee!' this time."
 

/Fezzes *are* cool if you wear them ironically enough!
//Strapon spelled backwards is "noparts".
//Just sayin'

I like this quote FTA: "Bands like this go on about how Nebraska or Blonde on Blonde changed their lives, but when you hear their music it's just a Blink 182 beat and a fart noise."

Pretending to be hip by using the word hipster is so meta.

Cheech y Chong were clearly ahead of their time. Their "Dink Winkerson" routine ended with Blind Melon Chitlin making farting noises to a beat...enjoy.

Actually Biatches Ain't Shiat is a pretty cold diss. And Dr. Dre's Dre Day is one too, especially in video form. Bonus, both songs diss the same guy, Eazy-E.

How bout Nicki Minaj's 'Stupid Hoe'? (can't link right now)

Mentioning another band in an otherwise unrelated song does not make it scathing.

This os scathing

Whatever street cred Minaj might have had evaporated the minute that inane song came out.

Yes, that reference might actually be obscure.

And that goes for all of you punks in the press
That want to start shiat by printin' lies instead of the things we said
That means you Andy Secher at Hit Parader, Circus Magazine
Mick Wall at Kerrang, Bob Guccione jr. at Spin
What you pissed off 'cause your dad gets more pu$$y than you?

/obscure?
 
2012-08-19 06:48:46 AM
You've got a lot of nerve
to say you are my friend.
When i was down, you just stood there grinning.
You've got a lot of nerve
to say you have a hand to lend
you just want to be on the side that's winning.
(and so on)

Dylan's target there was pretty well understood to be primarily Phil Ochs and his other critics in the "folk" movement who called him a "sellout" when he plugged in. Ochs committed suicide not too long after that, as I recall.
 
2012-08-19 07:02:23 AM
Man, where would we be without the Yacht Rock series? No one would have a clue about Steely Dan's dark sarcasm, that's for sure.
 
2012-08-19 07:37:52 AM
The Eagles and Steely Dan were douchebags when they did it then.

And shockingly enough they're still douchebags now.

Yes, that reference might actually be obscure.


Which is too bad because that is such a great album and really demonstrated how significant his contributions were.

/unless the reference I'm thinking of was originally a reference to something else altogether

Joan Baez wrote this haymaker about Bob Dylan:

Well you burst on the scene
Already a legend
The unwashed phenomenon
The original vagabond
You strayed into my arms
And there you stayed
Temporarily lost at sea
The Madonna was yours for free
Yes the girl on the half-shell
Would keep you unharmed

Now I see you standing
With brown leaves falling around
And snow in your hair
Now you're smiling out the window
Of that crummy hotel
Over Washington Square
Our breath comes out white clouds
Mingles and hangs in the air
Speaking strictly for me
We both could have died then and there

Now you're telling me
You're not nostalgic
Then give me another word for it
You who are so good with words
And at keeping things vague
Because I need some of that vagueness now
It's all come back too clearly
Yes I loved you dearly
And if you're offering me diamonds and rust
I've already paid
 
2012-08-19 08:47:21 AM
//and you two are referencing the original reference

yeah, I love Judas Priest.
