Any chance we'll get a podcast of you, Drew, and Thomas running through the album? I loved both times you've done that and think it'd be cool if it became a more regular feature.

This year, just like ten years ago, I'm spending way too much on albums, only now on vinyl instead of CD. I'll regret... some of it, but not a lot haha. The more things change, the more they stay the...

I have a friend who's really into the EDM scene who has referred to blink-182 as a guilty pleasure band a few times to me, so it definitely isn't something only people in this scene say.

You should watch Review too. Personally I think it's the best of the bunch. Comedy Central is on fire right now.

As much as I think this could be a cool app for certain people, I agree. Someone said they didn't get the appeal of Radiohead so I told them to listen to "Paranoid Android". They listened to the 90...

Same. I'm hoping the vinyl comes with the Apathetic EP in addition to unreleased tracks.

Ten years ago was a great time to like pop-punk. I was born in the right generation. Can't wait for this show and the vinyl.

This is great. I love to see successful bands treat their fans the way they would've loved to be treated by their favorite bands.

100% agree. It reminds me of the whole "Are video games art or not" argument. At the end of the day, who cares? Why does it matter? If you like a band, you like them, regardless of genre. If someone...

Yep, though Deja Entendu was certified gold in 2007, which means 500,000 copies of that record alone were sold. I'm still guessing close to 1.5 million. They never had a single even close to as big...

Whenever this band does decide to give it up, they should record the entirety of Songs From the Black Hole as their swan song. Guaranteed great final album.

But as an apology for...

As far as Kanye goes: he gets ripped apart a lot, sure, but every album except College Dropout peaked at number 1. That's the height of commercial success in my mind. He also constantly tops year-end...

I completely agree with you that commercially it won't come close. I was only talking about critically. And I'd also argue that Kanye has replicated that.

Modest Mouse, Kanye West, Brand New, and now Radiohead are all (probably) putting out new material soon... we're in for some great, and possibly classic, releases.

He's at $58... I think most of us could get that much in the same amount of time, even if we've never recorded anything before.
