Is it some kind of stupid running joke in the industry or something?
Lorde is NOT rock.
But hey, it's nice to see LP get nominated again and this should boost up the album sales for THP a bit and UIG could get more radio airplay and a higher score on the charts, mostly rock and alternative related.
And yet Rolling Stone itself didn't mention it in 44 best albums of 2014 so far.
It's funny, actually - in the Revolver article, Shinoda mentions Lorde as well:
It's a readers' poll. It's not what the RS staff believe. They think THP was meh, but thanks to Mike linking the readers' poll to his Twitter fans, THP has the second highest number of votes.
I remember last year the Billboard Music Awards gave Top Rock Song to Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know". Just saying.
The problem is the music industry used the term "rock" as an advertisement in name only these days, they hardly promote the genre with the actual sounds of rock music these days.
"Castle Of Glass" - Single goes Platinum
Meteora goes 7th gold
The Hunting Party goes gold after 3 weeks.
SOme good things happend here in Germany
I'd really like to see UIG win an award;Lorde doesn't deserve to be up there, Imagine Dragons and Arctic Monkeys have both had those songs out for like a year (but young people LOVE those songs to death), so Black Keys remain.
Well, it's about time, after that whole two-world-wars thing
i am not sure if this joke is not against the rules.
Really? That's cool.
Meterora sold over six million here in the states and it's still a 4 time platinum album. Since LP's second record just went gold for the seventh time, it pretty much sold over 700,000 copies. Am I a right or is less/more than that?
*me blasting Keys To The Kingdom*
Dad: "what are they singing about?"
Me: "Hard to explain....it's very abstract."
In most of the songs on the album, when you pair Shinoda's rap verses with the rest of the lyrics, things do become quite abstract
LMAO, you just don't know either.
No, I do not.
No one does, so you got that going for you, which is nice.
I'm bored of The Hunting Party already I want something new
So, some guy posted a photo of screenshots of final masquerade video and it looks like it will include drawbar outro.
This is the link
That song is more rockish in style than anything Lorde's released.
Here's the thing: Lorde, Mumford & Sons, Gotye – they make alternative music. Another name for alternative music happens to be alternative rock. I think this is why they get described as "rock", even though most would disagree that there's anything "rock" about them.
Separate names with a comma.
