Think what you want about Snooki, but have your picture taken with her and then publicly say that? Rude, mean and unnecessary.

Says more about them than it does about her.
The band members didn't do that. Fans of the band did that.

hell, most small-ish local bands have friends manage their facebook pages for them. i thought of out-sourcing mine to a band of trolls living under a bridge, until i realized it was easier to de-activate the thing altogether.


i wouldn't know this snooki person from any other plastic reality show scuzball, but i am pretty sure that selling yourself, agreeing to show the cable-watching populace your ugly drama-infested life in order to make a buck (or a lot of bucks, i guess? i hear these people make insane amounts of money per episode), makes you a whore regardless of whether you're literally skanking it up on said reality show.

I don't care if people think Snooki's a whore or a skank, or talentless, I was just saying it's rude to have one's picture taken with her and then proceed to call her a bunch of names in public.

But now that it's been clarified that the band didn't add the tags, I see that should have been my obvious question from the start.

I shall stop thinking less of the Black Keys now. I'm sure they're relieved.

I agree with you on this one.

Mutemath's members do all the status updates for their FB page, they're linked from their Twitter page, but still it's cool to get little tidbits from the band members, sometimes just random thoughts or questions, what's going on in their lives, other times about the progress of new material or what they thought about a recent concert of theirs.

I finally got to listen to the new album - I've seen The Black Keys mentioned here and there throughout the years but until now was never familiar with their stuff. I like the music a lot, it's a shame that the vocals aren't that memorable and rather short on personality (my big beef with many modern bands that I otherwise would have liked heaps more).

I love Dan Auerbach's singing.

I do to, though I would say that he's surprisingly much stronger live than on record, seek out some live clips Saracene.

His voice is sexier than he looks (even though he looks just fine).

Actually, the first time I heard them was when I caught their Glastonbury set on TV a couple of weeks ago. I just don't think that his voice has much character to it

I disagree as well, and I don't even particularly like Muse. Nobody sounds like Bellamy, except possibly younger Thom Yorke. And that asshole from Neon Trees.

Hm. I don't know if that's agreeing with her at all since I never said Bellamy sounded like everyone else. I just find his vocals to be terribly apt to the description she made regarding Dan Auerbach's vocals (lack or memorability/personality).

Matt Bellamy's as breathless as Brenda Vaccarro used to be. But I still like him.
