Who do yall think would be the best bro 2 chill with?

Bro #1)
He seems like a bro who is into cool shit, like culture and rap and stuff. Might be awkward to become BFFs with a black person if ur parents aren't as progressive as they pretend to be.
Bro #2) Seems like a pretty cool post-Cobain type of bro. Might always be down to throw down an authentic rock n roll post-rock chill. Not sure if ur parents would want u hanging out with a bro who 'looks like a drug addict.'
Bro #3) Seems like he is a cool bro who is always down to play some kewl riffs on a no-wave tribute song. Not sure why he is wear a shirt for a 'flashy' 46 year old mom.

WHICH BRO DO U WANT 2 CHILL WITH/BRING HOME 2 UR PARENTS AND TELL THEM IS UR BFF?

...BUT SRSLY....
Does n e 1 know why artists always have to 'collaborate'? Feel like 95% of the time, it is pointless 'co branding' 2 make people feel like ur really 'making new, beautiful art' cuz u 'don't care about what genre u fall into.' Maybe in the future we need 2 leave 'mashing up' to experts like The Girl Talks, and othe nite life DJs. Tired of these artists trying to piggyback off 1 another 2 'reach new audiences'/assuming that 'authenticity' or 'pop appeal' is a transferrable force.

Miss the days when collabs were 'authentic' and 'exciting.'

WHATS UR FAVE COLLAB OF ALL TIME THAT CHANGED MUSIC 4EVER?

The Guy from the Killers 'goes solo', writes crappy new song that sounds like the Killers

Brandon Flowers is the lead singer of the popular alt rock band The Killers. Feel like that band is probably the next U2 or something, probably a ways ahead of the Arcade Fire for 'the most popular mainstream band that people like 2 pretend is alt.'

N e ways, seems like that bro went solo, and made some music video. Pretty boring song, boring video. Not sure who this appeals to, but imagine people who are really into the Killers 'talking themselves into this artsy solo project.' Charlize Theron is in the video, probably to appeal to international / South African audiences. Song is too boring to make the video 'even remotely interesting.' Feel like even the quality of this post was 'compromised' because of the quality of the video/song, but just wanted to share this lame experience with yall.

Sorta think he should just keep writing the cheesy poppy bullshit to please the most people possible.

N e ways, feel 0% interested in this 'exciting new solo project.' Wonder if it will get tons of mainstream buzz, or if Pitchfork will give it a 3.0, 'just for shits.'

Do yall like the Killers?
Is Brandon Flowers 'the most authentic front man in alt rock'?
Do u remember when the Killers were just a buzzband, playing 'new wave, synth driven pop'?

Does the Killers dude seem like a 'dbag' compared to his old personal brand?
