I love this so much, hahaha.
The Hulk ain’t never lied.
I can’t even express how much respect I have for Mark Ruffalo. The dude’s on the US terrorism watchlist for fuck’s sake.
Omg, it’s true.

If you think a woman in a tan vinyl bra and underwear, grabbing her crotch and grinding up on a dance partner is raunchy, trashy, and offensive but you don’t think her dance partner is raunchy, trashy, or offensive as he sings a song about “blurred” lines of consent and…
Defeater’s new album, Letters Home, can be heard in full below after the jump.
Bert McCracken of The Used wrote an email to Bob Lefsetz to ponder the thought of who would end up making the music industry a fair and somewhat level playing field once again. You can read the interesting and thought provoking email below after the jump.
Verse - “The Silver Spoon And The Empty Plate”
“Retrospectively speaking, we are not cut from the same cloth. This goes against every argument she would try to make to justify the relationships of the people in this world. We are the epitome of monetary wealth. We are also the definition of the bottom of the barrel. We speak both the language of the rich and the poor because we are, in many ways, one and the same. The great divide we face is compassion for the book we judged by its cover (Her favorite book was a Hinton novel where the down and out kids win and Darry gives up everything to care for his brothers). This was truly something to help identify with the immediate environment she was facing. Printed words of inspiration became her unconditional lover. Stories in black and white helped shape some form of relating to something… someone… anything… everything… nothing. The beginning of class struggle as a concept in the mind: the empowerment that stripped us of all ignorance in the shortest amount of time. This will keep our own guns pointed at our heads as we fight to survive. An anger so crippling, a truth as real as the children murdered in wars waged by the wealthy to protect their money and tight stranglehold on every continent. She hated authority of all kinds. ”Police are pigs, justice is blind, greedy men in suits only serve to divide.” An aspect of our lives that violently connects in our minds and the unwavering war that, will never subside.”

It’s 2013 and no one that wasn’t supposed to have our record got it until we mailed them out. It’s shocking and really a nice feeling that a bond of mutual respect with everyone who had the press stream kept the album where it belonged.
Now, the record is streaming so you can listen guilt free. Like I said, its 2013. I know how shit works. Music is free if you want it to be, so why pay for it? To that, I say, touché. I get it. I understand but I’d like to counter with this: it’s $10.
Crime in Stereo said this to me once and it really struck me. Just stop and think about what you’d spend $10 on; one trip to Chipotle? Going to a movie if it’s a cheap one? Maybe a t-shirt from like Urban Outfitters if its on sale? Two beers at a bar?
We put in months of our lives into this record. We sweat and we froze in a shitty practice space. We argued and fought tooth and nail over every song. We spent weeks of 15 hour days at the studio working until we physically couldn’t anymore literally getting frustrated to the point of punching walls because we didn’t get it perfect. And that doesn’t even begin to account for financial shit. But forget all that. What’s most important is that we feel all the way down to our bones that this is our best record to date and the critics seem to agree.
It’s not intended as a guilt trip or like I’m pleading with you. It’s just a suggestion: next time you’re about to go to Chipotle, maybe eat what your mom made or use your college meal card or make something yourself. The next time you’re gonna go to the bar, split a 30 rack with some buddies and drink at home. I’m suggesting you take that $10 and buy The Greatest Generation because we think it’s worth it and it matters to us as a band that you do. That’s all. Hope your lives are great. See you this summer.
