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 (ten months 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 (ten months 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

i stan corrected (morrisp), Wednesday, 23 January 2019 03:34 (nine months ago) link

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

dyl, Wednesday, 23 January 2019 04:24 (nine months ago) link

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

that's SM's lead single :|

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 (six months 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 (six months ago) link

It's subjective of course.

nostormo, Wednesday, 1 May 2019 19:00 (six months ago) link

Plus Little Simz (imo)

imago, Wednesday, 1 May 2019 19:01 (six months ago) link

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 (six months 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 (six months 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 (five months 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.

self-clowning oven (Murgatroid), Monday, 23 September 2019 05:45 (one month ago) link

I actually can't believe people are still spelling out the song's title and calling it a chorus. Aretha gets a pass because she was probably one of the first but jesus christ, "G-E-N-E-T-I-C-S?" Someone got paid to write that?

Paul Ponzi, Monday, 23 September 2019 12:57 (one month ago) link

100 gecs are fairly unlistenable to me but definitely don't belong in this thread

I don't mind that. They sound like Franz Ferdinand with fetal alcohol syndrome, but still better than the Strokes.

shared unit of analysis (unperson), Saturday, 19 October 2019 16:55 (one month ago) link

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.
