ok i'm a big FRabbit fan, but what is so disgusting about it? there's a mild pang in the joke that the band's music could've helped him (also a reference to how it helped so many, imo), then the sincere one in the middle and the third one wouldn't be a bad thing, either.
what am i missing here? to me this reads like the staff at The Onion being about as close to sincere as it ever gets. (but i def could be missing something.)

I can't get my head around the intention. What's it doing on that site? why would you make an article that includes fictional opinions from people who don't exist about someone who committed suicide a few days ago? why would anyone make this?

The "irony" in joke #1 seems grotesque (and dumb); and joke #3 seems grotesquely trivializing. I'm not very familiar w/FR, just speaking as a bystander.

One day I'll make a top ten track list for the band for those who kind of dropped off after tmfo. To me this band hadn't fell off, aesthetically speaking.

"You're the shit and I'm knee deep in it" is still devastating

imagine being so brilliant that you can write a line like:
"I'd say she was his sister but she doesn't have his nose"
to communicate the distance between two people who are no longer in love

He was a master and that album is dripping with equally brilliant images. What a waste.
