Smash Mouth’s “All Star” is a motivational speech wrapped in a pop song. “Hey now! You’re a rock star, get the show on, get paid,” and so on. There doesn’t seem to be much ambiguity in its message: being an all star is cool, being a rock star is cool, getting paid is definitely cool, and hey, you never know–if you give yourself ...

In advance of his terrifying-looking directorial debut Get Out, Jordan Peele gave a thoughtful, frequently hilarious interview with GQ about race and the making of the film. After discussing the influence of classics like Rosemary’s Baby and Look Who’s Coming to Dinner, the black-guy-dies-first trope of horror movies, and the uncanny eeriness of dolphins and pigs, Peele tells a very funny story about the time he visited New Orleans with ...

In the late ’80s, Paul McCartney and Elvis Costello teamed up to co-write many of the songs that ended up on the former Beatle’s 1989 solo album Flowers in the Dirt. But Costello’s voice only shows up once on the album, as Macca’s duet partner on the bombastic “You Want Her Too.” Today, to accompany an upcoming reissue of Flowers in the Dirt, we’re ...

The title of the newest song by The Mountain Goats, “The Ultimate Jedi Who Wastes All the Other Jedi and Eats Their Bones,” isn’t really out of the ordinary for John Darnielle. (Think about “The Best Ever Death Metal Band in Denton,” “The Legend of Chavo Guerrero,” “The House That Dripped Blood,” and so on.) The song itself, however, has ...

Review: It’s Worth Listening to the Rest of Migos’ Culture, Too…

unnamed-2-1485530931.png

When Atlanta’s Migos released “Versace” in 2013–and in the following year, in which the trio’s unmistakable triplet raps began to rule hip-hop on a global scale–it was hard to predict that their most commercially successful moment would come years later. At a glance, they had all the trappings of a flame destined to burn quickly and brightly, with their particular charm that could only endure ...

Here’s All the Anti-Trump Protest Music Released on Inauguration …

anti-trump-protest-music-1484949152.jpg

Great protest music isn’t the silver lining of autocracy. I haven’t asked, but I feel pretty confident saying that all of the artists whose music is featured in this story would happily erase their latest song if it meant we wouldn’t have to try to counteract the regressive policies promoted by a impetuous, divisive man-child like Donald Trump by scrounging for ACLU donations on Bandcamp. But that’s where we’re ...
