Your argument is sound, nothing but sound

DumbROCKracy and other news.

Have a Myspace band? Want to convince people who know nothing about anything to vote? DemROCKracy is just for you! Excuse me for being cynical, but I’ve always thought that Rock the Vote is one of the most retarded things ever. What’s even dumber? Rock the Vote teaming up with Myspace to organize a Battle of the Bands. The band that wins (determined both by which bands sign up the most voters fastest — they’re aiming for quantity over quality, I guess — and which bands win a popular vote by the users of Myspace. That last part is open to a lot of snide remarks that I will leave to you commenters to make) gets its 15 minutes of fame before the Denver convention. The world mos def needs more Myspace bands, especially politically aware Myspace bands. That way, not only are they a scene / fashioncore band, they’re a preachy scene / fashioncore band. Excellent. Italics.

Apparently Madonna’s seeking a divorce or something. Maybe Guy Ritchie will go back to making, you know, sort of fun movies and stuff.

There’s a deluxe addition of the Bob Dylan documentary Don’t Look Back coming out, according to Paste. The phrase “impassive Nico” almost seems redundant.

The guys in Slipknot have some new masks. That’s so punk. But no, does anyone still listen to these guys? Bueller? Bueller? They’re so yesterday, so yesterday.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers (who have managed to ruin XM Satellite Radio’s music stations for me — I mean, honestly, how often can you hear Snow (Hey Oh) before you go crazy?) are thinking of having Justice produce their next album. Why? How? …what? I have only heard a couple Justice songs, but they’re headlining the music festival me and my besties are going to in September. Thing is, I have no idea what Justice could possibly have in common with the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Like. At all.

Whoo! Annie’s (check out her song Chewing Gum) sophomore effort is due out in October. Pitchfork details the CD’s track listing.

  1. haha Slipknot fans never grows up. They just go around the white trash trend of ICP rap and Slipknot metal. Those mask looks gay as well. It really shows they all take it in the ass.

    “not only are they a scene / fashioncore band, they’re a preachy scene / fashioncore band. Excellent. Italics.”

    haha made me laugh. Such a cynical mind you got there.
