  1. Never thought I’d ever agree with Alice Cooper, of all people…but yeah, the fey, Paul Simon-circa Graceland wannabes that are Vampire Weekend is just some pathetic, hipster-driven nonsense.

    Here’s the thing: I remember when Green Day first went mainstream and people called them “Gap punk”; in their wake came Blink-182 etc etc etc and all of a sudden, Billie Joe and co. became The Beatles in comparison to that crap. (In their defense, Green Day eventually got good.)

    Along those same lines of hype accorded to NY-based phenoms in this decade, I feel junk like Vampire Weekend will eventually make The Strokes seem really good. Some prize that would be, though…
