So I just listened to their entire discography for the first time. As someone who used to look down on their fans and thought it was just odd-future tier edgy teen shit I wan't to apologize from the bottom of my heart. The lyrics are actually incredible. I'm overwhelmed by how much substance there is in most of their tracks. I just wanted to apologize for calling it stupid gimmicky shit.
It's rare that we have artists like these. There are people on this board right now who (like I used to) will dismiss DG and make fun of it's fans despite having listened to only half a track. I urge you guys to change your ways and either give them another chance or change your ways because your comments are entirely misguided.
Yeah, I'm glad I get to experience a new DG album with /mu/ as corny as that sounds. Found the reactions to Inanimate Sensations and how they've chanegd since to be interesting
just glad i didn't get into them after jd was released
>just glad i didn't get into them after jd was released
I'm still not entirely convinced it will be the last album they make together.
The more I think about it, the more a fake 'death' (on something as stupid as a napkin no less) seems like exactly the sort of batshit thing they'd try, just to see what happened and manipulate everyone. Alternatively, 'Death Grips is over' doesn't preclude them from starting some other new 'conceptual art exhibit'
Now imagine this:
You've hype about dg, you can't wait to see them live. They're playing in San Fran with Soundgarden and NIN. You don't give a shit about either of those bands or the fact that SF is a 4 hour drive. It is the closest DG show. You spend 80$ on tickets, and then they release the note on FB.
That is me and when I read the note I just laughed and banged my head against a wall
Good band though
awesome thread. i made one just like it about a year ago, i had to say sorry for all the shit i talked to the fans of this band. I didnt get it yet.
I don't know if theres any merit to my opinion because of how new I am to them, but I doubt they'll continue on making music anytime soon. A band breaking up and continue to put out music seems like a publicity stunt- not something I think DG are into despite all the crazy shit they've done. However, I could see them putting out music out of the blue 5-10 years from now. Again, this is just an opinion of a newfan.
That does seem like a bitch but I like that you laughed after you read it. Seems like something I'd do too. As weird as it sounds, being at the show that DG didn't show up is almost as interesting as being at a show where DG performed live. Years from now, when people start talking about this band as if they paved the way for whatever bands they influence, the whole ditching shows thing will be talked about more. And you could say you were one of the fans that were at the shows they didn't show up to. Sounds corny as shit but you're part of music history.
There was a post made yesterday that actually made me reconsider listening to DG. See pic related. I know the drugs shit is corny but I think the guy has a point. I can't remember the last time a hip hop artists albums differed from each other to the extent DG's albums differ from each other. That being said I have notm played the most, probably because of how short it is in comparison but yeah.
I thought they were an okay group and didn't understand the obsession after only hearing NOTM and Gov Plates.
I listened to EM recently and HOLY SHIT I totally get why they have such a devoted following
I didn't like Exmil or TMS at first but loved NLDW, GP, and NOTM at first listen immediately. Been giving Exmil and TMS some love recently and liking them, but not as much as that first time I heard that bassline at the start of NLDW or the breaking glass and EEEEEE at the beginning of GP
im pretty sure most of /mu/ considers TMS to be their weakest just because fantano gave it a 10/10, lyrically speaking its miles ahead of ExM in every way
exmil has incredible energy vocally/sonically but the lyrics are just too straightforward and bland (except for culture shock and beware)
idk maybe the straightforwardness is a nice compliment to the crazy sound overall
pic is a nice read,
guy is right, but a ranking is down to personnal opinion and i was curious what albums a "new" listener would get the more out of after listening to the whole discog
i've been listening since tms dropped and i like all their releases a lot and like your pic said, each album is perfect for a different feel
To be fair, I did nazi that coming. I came here to say this but boy, that escalated quickly so to the top with you! Lost it at 'This is why we can't have nice things' and then my faith in humanity was restored, my mind blown, and manly tears were shed. Well said. As a 'murican, I can confirm this gem has just won the internet and is doing it right. Just sayin', I know that feel, bro, and while that was a risky click, this post was a 9/10, would read again. I see what you did there and it feels good man. You're doing God's work, son. I laughed way harder than I should have at your list that seems legit and totally nailed it. You - I like you.
You magnificent bastard; you, sir, are so brave, a gentleman and a scholar, and seeing how you are a redditor for 4 years, this checks out, so I'll allow it. I regret that I only have one upvote to give for this cool story, bro. CTRL+F "about tree fiddy" was not disappointed. Wait, why do I have you tagged as "NOPE NOPE NOPE"? Nice try, you monster. What did I just read? Dafuq? I read that as "YOU HAD ONE JOB". I can't fap to this. No true scotsman could see that this relevant XKCD was bad, and you should feel bad. You must be new to reddit, so I'll see your cakeday and raise you a karma train. One does not simply rustle my jimmies, not even once. This stahp gave me cancer for science, so that's enough internet for me today. OP is a fuzzy little man-peach, 2/10, would not bang. What is this I don't even know how is this wtf? Circlejerk must be leaking. This will get buried but brace yourselves, some men want to watch the world burn right in the feels. When you see it, they'll KILL IT WITH FIRE! But this has nothing to do with atheism. Lawyer up, delete facebook, hit the gym, and SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY, said no one ever, so you wouldn't download a strawman. Damn onions, you scary like a BOSS. whoosh. Since rule #1 is 'be attractive', I'll just leave this here: This is my [f]irst post, be gentle.
Did I miss something? Didn't the "fake" twitter account post that they didn't break up? It's not legitimate proof but the pictures were of the basketball court from the music video and had the goggles in them.
>a publicity stunt- not something I think DG are into despite all the crazy shit they've done.
Is it significantly more of a publicity stunt than the dick cover/the leak/the concert no-show with the fan's suicide email? All of those things attracted them plenty of bewildered publicity, but also were done for whatever bizarre inner purposes the band had.
A breakup is more specific, it changes the whole conversation around them, putting them in a different place that they dictate for themselves.
The basketball court, the goggles, and even a screencap of an email that someone actually sent to the DG email address, all seem to indicate that @bbpoltergiest was really them yeah.
But one tweet, amongst a bunch of rather random and weird ones, could easily just have been written to fuck with people. It is what started me thinking that maybe it's all a ruse, or misdirection, but I'd still take it with a spoonful of salt.
I'm aware of that twitter account. I personally just think it's someone who worked on the video with andy. As shitty of a belief it is to have, i really hope they actually did break up. Quitting while they're at their best (their words, i agree) will have a much bigger impact and will contribute to their legacy in a positive way.
There was a reason for the dick cover, I think it's in a SPIN magazine interview or something. I know it did garner a lot of publicity, but it wasn't done entirely for publicity. The leak was just to get back at Epic records out of disagreement over something. Their lyrics indicate a hatred towards the mainstream system and the corporate world. So for them to leak their album that was supposed to be released via epic records is the ultimate payback (for whatever wrongdoing epic records did to them). And again, it did receive publicity, but wasn't done for publicity.
As for the no-shows I have no idea why they did it. This might've been done for publicity I'll give you that.
But the break up. Idk it just seems like something done entirely and directly for publicity. Stefan often raps about his dislike for mainstream artists who are attention whores (see culture shock, second verse).
Or idk maybe they just get a kick out of fucking with us. It could be as simple as that.
he wouldve bought into the hype during the NLDW era
do you read lyrics? ive seen footage is lyrically better than anything NMH or modest mouse have ever written
go listen to your suburban white mid-20s "lost in life" faggot music
