Last week on a music mailing list that I'm on, someone posted this year's Bumbershoot lineup which includes the reunited Stone Temple Pilots.
This news prompted one listmember to respond with
"Oooh, Stone Temple Pilots! How could I pass that up?". And someone else to agree "I hear ya. An oozing syphlitic sore. How could I pass that up?"
I think both authors were being sarcastic. I won't get into the total lameness of sarcasm in written form (basically, it doesn't work!) but I really don't understand the universal disdain for Stone Temple Pilots. They weren't that original or groundbreaking, but there were tons of bands from that era that sucked a lot harder than STP did. And some of their songs (like this one) are downright power-poppy.
The first time I heard this song ("Days Of The Week"), I thought it was from some cool 21st century buzz-band like the Strokes. Nope, turns out it was Stone Temple Pilots. As in elegant bachelors, foxy to me, etc.. I don't care. "Days Of The Week" still rocks. Look me in the eye and explain to me why that song doesn't rock!
