The One Guy Who Will Say Out Loud That Atoms For Peace Sucks

I have a very clear understanding that my musical taste varies extremely of those of other folks, including many of the famous highly touted internet music blogs we all frequent every day to stay up on our rock music news. It is in the words of these people we trust to tell us what we should be listening to, what's new, what's happening. Usually, my personal distaste for some of the tunes most highly touted bloggers are into is merely due to the fact that I'm an extremely odd fellow. That's something I also have a clear understanding of.

I for one am of the belief that as of 2013 the band Radiohead has more bad albums than good, and they haven't made a song I liked since I was in middle school. That doesn't mean I don't like those old bitchin' Radiohead songs, it's just that I grew out of them. Same with the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I used to love that band, now I just wonder how many times they can write the same song about Heroin causing 'the girl' to leave followed by the insertion of some random street corner located in California all to the sounds of that wicked Flea bass line. Don't get me confused here, I can stand the Red Hot Chili Peppers far more than I can stand Radiohead circa 2013-shit I'd go see RHCP if they came to town.

If every single music blog wants to worship Yorke and Radiohead I have no problem with that. It annoys me, but I can't fault anyone for holding on desperately to something that was once life changing(even if it's grown stale record by record by record). But I will however draw the line at Atoms For Peace.

 Seriously, did you listen to the above video? Can anyone help me out and explain to me what in the fuck that's suppose to be? Did Flea join Radiohead? When does the good part of this song start? I get told a lot that I'm an idiot, an imbecile, a talentless hack; which all may as well be true. But I have news for you, this Atoms For Peace is nothing but pretentious bullshit. It's just a bunch of random sounds. It's not groundbreaking, it's not innovative, it's freaking boring. It puts me to sleep, much like Thom Yorke's been doing to me for the last half of my life. If this is Rock & Roll, then I'm a fan of the wrong kind of music.

In closing I'd like to point out that if you are a fan of this non-sense. This sad excuse for music; then don't you dare ever try to slander a band like Foxy Shazam. On Twitter people like to dismiss my points of view because they don't get what Foxy Shazam is all about. Well, that's what you're all going to tell me about this Adam and Peace crap, or whatever the hell it's called. You'll say I don't “get it”. If this band is something I have to “get” in order to be let into your little elite music blogging world, then it's not something I want to be a part of.
