regarding evidence that Vampire Weekend sucks shit.

Hey, here's a quick one for ya: The uber-preppy dickless wonders in Vampire Weekend stopped pissing me off with their lukewarm Paul Simon rip-offs long enough to branch out musically. They achieved this by covering Rancid's "Ruby Soho." Well, "covering" isn't the right word. OK, lemme rephrase that: They achieved this by ripping the balls off of Rancid's "Ruby Soho," leaving it a neutered, disgusting mess. All of the dynamic highs and lows are gone, replaced with some reggae-lite reverb and what I can only assume is VW's idea of rocking (inoffensively). I know their music is too middle-of-the-road to ever truly be awful, and that my knee-jerk reactions are partially (OK, mostly) based off of the hype surrounding it, but fuck this band. Fuck this band into outer space forever.
