Bloc Party Selling Out Metallica Style...

"Like eating glass, more like choking down some cock"

You know what really grinds my gears, Bloc Party. Bloc Party is done. It's over, don't fight it. Shut down the hype-machine. They've gone and sold out, not indie anymore kiddos. They should do an album with Jason Mraz. This is new to me, but, after a terrible on-demand (comcast) concert viewing and a TARGET add, these guys are worthless, imo. Being used to sell jeans in a shitty tv spot is one thing, but the on demand concert just ruined it for me. Horrible, horrible stuff. Bloc Party is gayer than Tom Cruise in bed riding a strap on with a drunk Rob Thomas. That's gay. I'm going on a long ride in a few hours and they're not on the playlist. I'd rather work out to Rufus Wainwright, atleast he's honest about it.

Don't listen to these. If you do, send me your address, and I'll come over to your house and punch you in the stomach. I'm serious.

Do listen to this added nug
(via the Change Single):

Deftones (feat Jonah) - no ordinary love (sade cover)

Wow! That's a hell of a spam comment you got there. Longest I've seen. ... Just thought I'd let you know I'm off to get a crown on my recently root-canaled tooth. Will this ever end?

Those are some harsh words you have for the Bloc Party guys. Shit. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I praise them for trying to make a buck. Who gives a shit if their song is in a Target commercial. Does that really make you like them less? I do, however, agree that they are pretty bad live. If you've seen the Comcast thing and the Target commercial you probably watch too much TV.

Crown post root canal is pretty common. Hurts the checking account, though. How was the root canal?

Root canal wasn't as awful as I thought it might be. No gas, just novocaine, so that was sorta weird. The crown I have now is just temporary. Have to go BACK in two weeks for the permanent. Brush and floss, people!

you're an ass......the songs were written before the tv spot....how does that make them sellouts....the music should stand for itself....what are they supposed to do, play small dingy clubs for the rest of their careers working for peanuts just so you can respect yourself enough to admit you listen to their music?? i used to be like you, where if a band would suddenly end up on mtv or a song would end up as the music for a gay car commercial i would call them sellouts......but then i came to realize that these people cannot be expected to just play small clubs forever just to satisfy people like you....

How has Bloc Party sold out? They (to this day) have shot down tons of offers from major labels.

Silent Alarm is one of the best albums of the year with tons of different textures and sounds running through every song. Terrific headphone album.

And whoever said they suck live is a complete fool. Awesome live band (except when they played at Webster Hall, and that was Webster Hall's fault).

I found your blog after watching TV and going 'wow, did I really just hear Bloc Party in that car ad?", so I googled it, and I guess it's true ... It's a little sad but what can you do, no good music can remain just for the fans ...

Incidentally, I agree that everyone should listen to the Deftones' Sade cover. AMAZING.

Wow. Man, It's a good thing you listen with your EYES you fucking loser. So just 'cause BP does a few mainstream things thats enough to cast all of them out? Excuse but I thought people were into music for the MUSIC, not the fucking dramatics of who is and who isn't cool. Why don't you do yourself a favor right now and quit listening to music, because its retarded ass things like what you just said that ruin it for the rest of us. Bloc party is a good band, shitty live or not, though I've never had the pleasure of seeing them myself.

You're so cool, dude, cause you can have the music that no one listens to.. see how long that keeps you happy. Deftones are pretty well known too, dumbass. I like BP and the 'Tones both quite a lot, and i like them both enough to not give a shit how popular they get because I LIKE THE MUSIC. And after all, I thought thats what it is all about. Why don't you put your Ipod and your records in your ass, that way you really can have all your music to yourself. Selfish bitch.
