could be a threadwinner already

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).

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

Uptown VONC (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 22 January 2019 19:56 (six 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

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

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

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

triggercut, Wednesday, 23 January 2019 08:38 (five months ago) link

that's SM's lead single :|

is this the thread for when you're painfully bored with a current aesthetic that refuses to die?

So far 2019 is musically the worst year of this decade imo

in the nick of time.

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 (two 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 (two months ago) link

It's subjective of course.

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

Plus Little Simz (imo)

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

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

nostormo, Wednesday, 1 May 2019 19:07 (two months ago) link

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.

pomenitul, Wednesday, 1 May 2019 19:08 (two months ago) link

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

pomenitul, Wednesday, 1 May 2019 19:10 (two months ago) link

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

in honor of "sweet but psycho" being spammed every 1.5 hours on the top 40 station here that i am astonished my cow*rkers can apparently tolerate leaving on for the entire day

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.

triggercut, Monday, 3 June 2019 01:24 (one month ago) link

wow, that is awful. contrived and clunky.

alpine static, Monday, 3 June 2019 07:29 (one month ago) link

two weeks pass...

ufo, Thursday, 20 June 2019 02:10 (one month ago) link

that's good not bad

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 20 June 2019 06:31 (one month 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 guess the point is that it’s terrible but it’s definitely not a case of “so bad it’s good”, it’s not even fun.

Poncho De Nigris - viaje astral

So... bit of a backstory on this one: this guy is actually the not so talented brother of a famous soccer player in Mexico. Earlier this year he was invited to sing on meme-song “La Cobra” which was a big party hit in Mexico, and like most party hit, it’s terrible but also somewhat fun for a while.

This is the follow-up single after the success of the first one. It’s pretty much a remake, only this time they tried too hard to make it a meme video and song and it shows. This is just terrible, forced party music and the video is a cringefest for everyone involved.

Usually this thread is a lot more full by July so maybe this actually isn't the worst year.

billstevejim, Thursday, 11 July 2019 21:33 (one week ago) link

hmmm maybe we’ve just become numb to run of the mill bad stuff... i forgot to post the kygo remix of whitney’s “higher love” and like 80000 other shitty “bops” with beats by boring dudes

luckily there’s steve aoki

maura, Friday, 12 July 2019 14:03 (one week ago) link

Don't think I've ever heard the Avett Brothers before, despite them being relatively high profile and a long-lasting enterprise. But boy did this song rub me the wrong way:

The video maybe made things worse? Very taking-the-piss, so not ironic it's ironic? I can't tell.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 15 July 2019 20:02 (one week ago) link

that's bad but more so earnest it makes me a little uncomfortable.

omg that Steve Aoki thing is making me weep it's the most embarrassing thing i've heard in years.

blue light or electric light (the table is the table), Monday, 15 July 2019 23:10 (one week ago) link

that is horrific

omar little, Monday, 15 July 2019 23:13 (one week ago) link

Holy shit that's bad. My daughter and her friend are obsessed with Darren Criss. I keep conflating his name with Peter Criss and Criss Angel: Mind Freak.

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 01:18 (six days ago) link

ok, regardless of whether that Avett thing is the worst of the year or not, i'm kinda dying to know if:

a) the Avett Army has broken out in civil war over that song, brother against brother-style, OR

b) if they're all just so blindly loyal and believe the boys can do no wrong and, thus, everyone loves it

it's definitely one of the two.

alpine static, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 06:07 (six days ago) link

i hate lots of songs all the time that don't get posted here

tf is this person and how can we stop it

lumen (esby), Wednesday, 17 July 2019 23:22 (five days ago) link

From what I can tell, Avett fans are kind of mixed on the recorded song, but agree that the song *live* is the best song ever.
