This started out as a comment on Fidrych’s excellent piece “If Anyone Says ‘All Lives Matter,’ They Are a Cockroach” but once the length eclipsed the article itself, a separate post seemed like it was probably a good idea. It’s a long one, folks.

So it’s been awhile since you heard from the Worst Song Bracket guys and FGL ft/ Nelly was declared the winner but that doesn’t mean that the #content ends there.
If you haven’t already, check out RM on the Smell of Music podcast. The Smell of Music guys and rhythm discuss the Foul Four and interesting tidbits about…
Why is anyone surprised by how heavy a handgun is? No one is agog when a knife is sharp or a car is fast. A gun should be heavy. A handgun, if used correctly, shoots a bullet so hard that it slams into a person, bores through layers of skin, fat, muscle, veins, and bone and exits out of the other side of the body.…
If someone tries to tell me RBI Baseball is a good substitute they can get fucked.
Despite the troubling news about Deadspin’s parent company, sources at Sidespin The Website assert that the site has never been stronger and that the future is exceptionally bright, as long as the tournament about the worst songs ever never en-
It took 25 days of voting, 68 entries, over 20,000 votes, 2 hosts, seven guests, and a mountain of blood, sweat and tears to decide on The Worst Pop / Rock Song Since 1990. But today, 53 days after the first nominee, you’ve decided. Your Worst Pop / Rock Song since 1990 is:
Today is it. One more poll, one more update. One more reminder that the fate of these two songs lies in your hands. And one more back and forth between your two hosts as the sun sets on the great “Worst Song Bracket” experiment. We’re running this one for 2 days.
Perhaps of all the weeks, our special slate of four guests last week made it the best week of writing so far. We had the closest poll, the biggest comeback, seen the most progress in the bracket pool, and whittled away the field so now only 4 remain. This week, it’s not about divisions any more. It’s about dominance…
I consider myself something of a pop music expert. I know as much about pop music as @PFTCommenter knows about football. So when the #worstsongbracket was published I was confident in my ability to top the charts, as it were. Imagine my surprise when just a few days into the contest I received this message from one of…
Guys, this was painfully close. After three months of excrushiating competition, we have a winner in at least one of these brackets. Believe it or not, it’s that guy who always drops into our mentions to hit on an atheist. Send your congratulations to @Curtiswenis. You earned it buddy.

We had some laughs, we had some guests, we had some fun, and we decided the fate of another 16 songs. The rounds are flying by, and a handful of these will start to look familiar on a pretty frequent basis. But the Division Finals - the “Tainted 8" - run next week for the right to represent their genre in the Foul…
Another week, another round. Time to say goodbye to the 16 songs that couldn’t quite make it over the hump, and brace ourselves for the first really, really goddamn hard matches next week (Hoobastank v. Train? Korn v. Limp Bizkit?)
You idiots have really done it this time. Good luck finding someone else to run the rest of this dumpster fire.
One of the biggest mistakes you can make in the business world is hiring a millennial. It should be avoided at all costs. Chuck Robbins, CEO of Cisco, says, “hiring a millennial and expecting them to succeed is like hiring one of those capuchin monkeys that has to wear a diaper”.
