Would fit snugly on a rolling worst music of the 2010s thread.

The music is truly awful, but his face is significantly worse.

A more jejune Gavin Rossdale.

If there's a way that music as bad as that Yungblud thing can be prevented from making it off the island in future, then Brexit will be worth it (to the rest of the world).

grawlix (unperson), Tuesday, 22 January 2019 19:54 (one year ago) link

Knew the revive would be bcz of the fully deserved Malkmus stinker

Uptown VONC (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 22 January 2019 19:56 (one year ago) link

I mean if you'd asked me in 1999 what Malkmus would be doing in 2019, my guess wouldn't have been too far from literally everything about that song and video.

I think it’s... fine

the yungblud sounds entirely indistinguishable from what white men were preferentially listening to for an entire decade

dyl, Wednesday, 23 January 2019 04:24 (one year ago) link

It sounds like if One Direction had just discovered Oasis or the Happy Mondays to me.

Just checked the RYM top 200 records. Statistically, i like about 15-20 records from that list per year. now i found only 1. So unless the next 2/3rd of the year is going to be amazing, 2019 will be the worst

nostormo, Wednesday, 1 May 2019 18:52 (one year ago) link

Sticking to the current top 10, Weyes Blood, The Caretaker, Waste of Space Orchestra, Billy Woods & Kenny Segal and Inter Arma are all great.

pomenitul, Wednesday, 1 May 2019 18:55 (one year ago) link

It's subjective of course.

nostormo, Wednesday, 1 May 2019 19:00 (one year ago) link

Plus Little Simz (imo)

There's never been a year when RYM has basically jacked my own personal taste so hard haha

imago, Wednesday, 1 May 2019 19:03 (one year ago) link

Quelle Chris and Little Simz aren't half bad either, although I think I prefer the former based on a cursory listen of each.

pomenitul, Wednesday, 1 May 2019 19:06 (one year ago) link

Alwsys Lot's of hip hop and metal on RYM, which i don't like, but maybe more so this year

Life is too short for Wandelweiser, though. Or my not having access to proper speakers atm (the worst part about being an ephemeral expat imho) is drawing me away from infrasounds.

Have you tried Maja S. K. Ratke's Sult? Or Maurice Louca's Elephantine?

Oh I like Quelle Chris too! Bung that on the list yeah.

Shout out to the unnecessary apostrophe in the title, and how it's basically just a straight rip of that terrible 2002 song that is still popular right now.

wow, that is awful. contrived and clunky.

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 20 June 2019 06:31 (one year ago) link

for each successive remix they should add someone who has a word that rhymes with hat that they can highlight in their verse.

I'M A BRAT MAN (Bushido raps about eating sausage)
I'M A GNAT MAN (Tiny from Xscape sings about being short)
I'M THE BATMAN (Robert Pattinson mumbles something)
I'M A LAT MAN (Terry Crews flexes)

This should optimally continue for seven hours.

I can tell how much I would've loved that if it came out in 2004, but it's basically: What if Franz Ferdinand, Art Brut and Dogs Die in Hot Cars teamed up to make an album paying homage to the legacy of Los Campesinos?

Man, I was stuck in a dentist's waiting room this morning, and no joke, whatever playlist they had on seemed to be literally all of my least favorite songs from the past several years, from "Hey Soul Sister" to that Bruno Mars "Count On Me" song to the Fray to ... well, more Train. I heard that atrocious "Play That Song" and "Drops of Jupiter," too. A lot of Train. I almost had to leave.

My daughter went with a friend to see a band called ... Watersports? Waterparks? Waterpolo? Whatever it was, it sounded miserable.

ugh, never heard "Dance Monkey" until just now. It's bad, but the wiki entry starts with the makings of a good short story.

"Watson was born and raised in Mount Martha on the Mornington Peninsula. She learned how to play keyboards and drum pads at high school and later gathered experience performing local gigs and festivals."

i almost admire the "dance monkey" singer's commitment to her downright bizarre vocal affectations

Update: apparently my family has indeed heard it, but they do not seem to be fans. That sort of vocal affectation is all over the place these days.

okay I just figured out the name of this song on the radio where an insane cursed puppet child shrieks about all the terrible things she's going to do to you unless you carry out her bidding.

It's 'Dance Monkey' by Tones & I

my niece (12) loves this song and she's right

mark s, Monday, 10 February 2020 12:51 (seven months ago) link

It's one of these culture shock moments when you realise that something so weird can have such huge mass appeal... Her commitment to singing like a haunted Miss Piggy is commendable, but it also freaks me TF out.

doorstep jetski (dog latin), Monday, 10 February 2020 13:03 (seven months ago) link

the vocal is so crazy it just adds to the enjoyment/annoyance

ive never heard "before" pronounced as "befoay"...before

i was thinking more "demonic baby" than "insane cursed puppet child" myself

Saxophone Of Futility (Michael B), Monday, 10 February 2020 13:37 (seven months ago) link

there have been times when i turned on the radio right in the middle of a particularly bizarre vocal 'moment' from that tune and it can be legitimately frightening
