People who commit identity theft should have to listen to shitty music like Bruce Springsteen and the Beatles as part of their punishment


This is hot... it's also equal with DJ calling Weird Al the best songwriter of the last 40 years.

Yea I know.....but I don't give a fuck. (although the overly sensitive people on here probably don't think anyone should get stoned)

I guess I should have said this:

So anyone that disagrees with public stoning is overly sensitive? Lol

It's actually way worse. Weird Al is a really good songwriter, at least in his genre.

Not liking Springsteen and the Beatles is one thing... calling them 'shitty music' is a horrible take.

See calling Springsteen and The Beatles shitty music is definitely a hot take

The Weird Al take is just DJ being DJ

Not really.

Ideally hot takes can also be supported with more than you just don't like a popular thing.

SG do you consider yourself someone who has a refined ear when it comes to music?

So, when Mackus said Filet is the worst cut of meat...how is that supported?  Or Xmas vacation isn't funny?  Or Scorcese blows, etc...

 

A hot take is essentially an opinion and most of the time its your opinion and most of the time, nothing can support it.

 

Maybe if you are dumb enough and say LeBron is better than Jordan, there is some support there in terms of stats but those are few and far between.

Fuck no.  I just like what I like.  Music has never really been a big part of my life.  I listen to it but its not something I need.

 

And I haven't been SG in years.

Those opinions can be supported with some sort of argument. So can saying the Beatles suck. A decent amount of sports talk radio and TV for instance is based on hot takes that people support in interesting ways, even if they're probably wrong.
