Vibing 2 some rapegaze [link]
Really listening to this exciting new genre
thinking abt what it makes me feel
Do I feel 'dark'?
Am I ready to leave behind the vibes of chillwave?
Should I 'rage against the mainstream indie machine'
and only vibe out 2 rape gaze mp3s?
Sometimes worried abt the sustainability of rape gaze
like women's rights groups will get pissed abt it
and mainstream newspapers won't write abt it in their online blogs
because it is 'too controversial' in a backlashy way
Seems like a complex genre
Really hope it sticks around 4 a while
We need it
Thinking abt my sexual desires
Wondering if there is something 'deviant' inside of me
that makes me vibe hard to rapegaze music
like I can watch online pornography on mute
and listen to the dark sounds of salem
Should I vibe out to rapegaze, add it to my FB interests
become a Salem superfan
encourage a bunch of entry level alts to go to their concerts
sorta pretend like they are at a Crystal Castles concert
I feel like I will never go thru a hardcore drug addiction phase
Will never live in a shithole crack den meth lab apartment
Do drugs that involve needles
have sex in a graveyard
communicate with spirits
Have my bros crucify me just 4 shits
Sell my body for drugs
Contract some sort of infection/STD/terminal illness
Just dark ass shit
Feel like I'm always gonna be kinda mnstrm
and I won't ever be that dark
So maybe listening to rapegaze on my iPhone/Macbook is the only way 4 me
to sorta embed myself in that lifestyle
Do u <3 rapegaze?
Is there a high demand in the blogosphere 4 rapegaze mp3s?
Do u want more rapegaze coverage in the blogosphere?
Is Salem the world's worst buzzband?
Is Salem the world's best buzzband?
Do u buy in2 rapegaze or is it just an 'effing trend'?
Should chillwavers get rapegazey on album #2?
Jack Donoghue is known as the frontman of Salem, one of rapegaze's baddest boys on the block. But EVERY1 has ruffled their panties after Jack's latest rumored outburst. It apparently happened at the home of Los Angeleno AJ English, who is a well-known alt model & socialite. According to twitter, Jacky Jack Jack locked himself in the bathroom, opened a wound on his own hand, causing blood to spout out of his body, and went on a wall-painting bloodfest that hasn't happened since the prehistoric days of cavemen vibing on cave drawings. The bathroom looks like a dark crime scene, and no1 knows what happened inside of that bathroom. All that remains is the blood of Jack Donoghue... and no answers...
What has gotten in2 Jack??!? #pray4jack
The pictures are GRAPHIC, so if u r under 18, plz close this window.
Do u think his doodles were better than Charlie Manson's brainwashed cult when they murdered Sharon Tate and 'went Helter Skelter' on her?
R u worried abt Jack?
It seems as though AJ English pleaded for Jack to come back to his house and at least clean up the blood with Clorox wipes. Would u want a bathroom that had blood smeared all over it?
Jack responded, letting AJ know that he will smear his own blood where ever he wanted, and in fact, the entire world is his maid.
Has Jack Donoghue gone 2 far?
Would u let the member of a buzzband draw all over ur house with blood fingerpaint?
Would u rather have blood or feces all over ur bathroom?
Is Jacky just 'bein a rock star'?
Do u think it was a mean thing 2 do?
Will this add to Salem's rape gaze buzz, helping their brand grow?
Should Jack at least hire a cleaning lady 2 go clean it up?
Who is at fault?
Is this the biggest indie meltdown in the history of indie?

Jack BB! What happened 2 ur serious relationship with Courtney Love? [link] I thought that yall were going 2 make it last. :-( I guess u have moved on, now that ur doing super sexi shows with strippers and now u made out with this hottie alt QT on camera! Jacky_Jack_Jack...ur such a rapegaze heartbreaker!
Who is the girl? I want 2 know ALL abt her... It seems like she's got it all... Prettie hair... Pretty face... great lips... bangin bod...
I guess u could say her milkshake brings all of the rapegaze hottie front men 2 the yard. I am totally jeal of her to getting to smooch Jack!
Are Jack and Courtney Love 'over'?
Do u <3 this new bb?
Can Jack and the mystery girl 'make it work'?
Have u ever made out with a member of Salem?
Have u ever made out with a member of a buzzband?
Salem are the leaders of the rapegaze genre. Even though their music sounds like slow, dark, boring noise, they have somehow 'branded it' as 'relevant' and ppl vibe out to it in a dark way, but then they tend to get dark, and u feel like when u listen to them u might get some sort of STD that will rot your peen/vagina off because it is so dark and u don't know where it has been. Anyways, they played a show in Miami at Art Basel. There were strippers. I am not sure if it was a Salem thing, a Miami thing, an artsy thing, or a rape gaze thing. The strippers began to 'scissor' in the pool during the Salem set.
There will be rapegaze implants.
Do u wish there were more strippers at relevant buzz shows?
Are strippers 'alt', 'mainstream', 'lamestream' or 'uncool dad'?
I rlly need to go to a Salem show soon...
U look psychotic in a rapegaze balaclava!
I wish more buzz shows had strippers.
What a buzz show!
I see ur bush, bb!
It is on my 'bucket list' 2 get a dark lapdance to Salem. I will also negotiate for a 'champagne room' hummer if 'the price is right'.
Honestly wish there was more scissoring in the indie game...
Can I have the name of ur surgeon? I want my implants 2 come with lactating capabilities, 2!
Thanks, 'other dude' from Salem!
do u <3 Strippers?
Are these strippers 'rapegaze' enough?
Is Salem the #1 rapegaze band of all time?
Do u <3 strippers, or do u worry that they will rub STD juice on ur clothes/erect peen?
Have u ever 'got a handy/hummer' in a strip club?
Was this the most relevant show at Art Basel [via Miami]?
R u worried abt Salem, or is 'looking like they are deteriorating' part of their personal brand?
How dark r ur vibes?
Is this 'too dark' 2 get u off, or do u need 'darkness' 2 make u hornie?
RECAP: Alt Celebrity Halloween Costumes [from Best Coast 2 Skrillex 2 Kickball Katy 2 Chrissy Owens]By Carles on 01 Nov 2011
Were u wondering what ur favourite alt celebs were 4 Halloween?
Sorta wish I coulda gone to a relevant Halloween Partie where I saw tons of alt celebs, DJs, and CEOs of buzzbands :-(
At least I can look at pix of them on the internet and pretend they are my friends and pretend we went out and had fun and ate candy. :-)
Don't get me wrong, I love me some rapegaze. I like hanging out in graveyards and cutting "†" symbols into my skin just like any other rapegazer as I listen to some gazeyrape sounds of Salem. But this video is really boring. There are like trucks driving around or something. Maybe it is a metaphor? Unfortunately, I didn't go to film school, so I can't really 'analyze and interpret' visual images, but as a casual observer, I ZZZZZZZZZed the whole way thru this one.
Maybe I should get more in2 'trucks driving around' aimlessly. I can go vibe out on overpasses, watch cars and trucks driving around, maybe listen to buzz tunes on my iPoddy.
They probably should have just had some famous broad looking all rapegazey, and Jack 'singing'. But I guess Salem doesn't really have any words in their songs. SPEAKING OF SALEM, remember this sweet video of Jack rapping?
There's something abt u that's so unbloggable...
But that's what makes u oh so very bloggable....
Do u <3 or h8 Salem?
Is this video 'mad boring'?
Should Jack start rapping more?
Is Jack Donaghue the 'Prince of RapeGaze'?
Do u ever go out at night just to watch trucks driving around?
Courtney Love is a famous alt rocker broad who was married 2 Kurt Cobain but then he took his own life. It seems like now she is just searching 4 a man who is alt enough 2 fill his shoes. Here comes rapegaze hotttie Jack Donoghue 2 save the day and make her feel like she's the only gurle in the world!
They were spotted canoodling at a red carpet event and Jack was showin' off his totally keut new indie male haircut!
Hooray 4 'going pub'!
Courtney Love went public with her new boyfriend, rocker Jack Donoghue, at a charity gala in New York City this week.
The Hole star, who has been open about her search for love in recent months, arrived at the amfAR New York Inspiration Gala on Tuesday night on the arm of Donoghue, a member of Michigan-based rock group Salem.
The new couple posed for pictures on the red carpet with their arms around each other and were snapped holding hands.
I rlly need 2 check out this 'Michigan-based rock group. I'll bet they sound a lot like Nirvana.' -a rockstreamer
Will Jack and Courtney 'make it'?
Who goes on better benders?
Do they have good body language 2gthr?
Should Jack d8 some1 who is 'more indie'?
Will this help Salem 2 'go more mnstrm'?
Can Jack 'replace' Kurt Cobain?
Maybe summer is just 'time 4 haircuts', but it seems like the two bros in Salem are vibing out by a pool, shaving one another's heads. It's a sad day for Jack, because his long, golden locks were loved by all. But it's great to see so much unity within Salem. I'm sure Win Butler could never ask any1 in his band to 'give him a Win Butler haircut.' John Holland seems like a real team player, realizing that Jack is the alphadog in Salem, and doing his best to enable Jack to look good and feel good.
Do u think he got a haircut 2 'beat the summer heat'?
Or does he feel the pressure to be an indie hunk with the hottest haircut?
I miss ur hair...
Go back 2 sleep, bb...
Go back 2 sleep...
R u tired of haircut memes?
Do haircut memes represent 'the lack of buzz' in the buzzosphere?
Is Jack Donaghue the hottest hottie hunk McHotHot in indie?
What kind of indie haircut r u going 2 get?
I just listened to this 'remix' of Britney Spears hit dubhousestep anthem "Til the World Ends." It was done by Salem. I think they just slowed it down and added dark synths and heavy drums. I guess that's pretty chill. Once again, they made a snuff video.
***~~Just wanna keep dancin' til the world ends~~***
U have to wonder if representatives from Britney Spears are going to attempt to get this taken down. I heard her dad has 'legal ownership' over her, as if she were an invalid. I really wish I could harvest a human daughter to be as successful as Britney Spears, and utilize her 2 make $$$. Whether it is in entertainment or a different industry, I'd love to be able to enslave some1 who just needs to be paid in food, love, and therapy sessions.
Salem is the world's #1 rapegaze buzzband. They are known for 'being dark', potentially 'sucking' live, and just sorta bummin around town and ur like 'Are u guys okay? U don't look healthy", but they are just totally alt, riding junkie-waves, trying to stay relevant like any other alt/buzzband out there.
Anyways, they have a 'new music video' for the song "Sick." It is just one of those videos where they use vintage clips of old video footage to achieve a vintagey, raw aestehtic. I don't really vibe to these types of videos, but I might put this on late at night when I want to 'get dark' and watch something snuffy without actually having to go to my snuff film video store (located underneath an old Blockbuster).
Does this video 'crush it'?
Is Salem s00 hard and dark?
Do u hope that Salem stays alive 4 a while?
Do u ever get worried that they might have a night that is 'too dark' and we'll lose a buzzband?
What is the snuffiest/darkest thing that has ever 'gotten u off'?
At a recent Salem show, tons of twitter buzz got lifestreamed about how mainstream actress celebrity Christina Ricci was in the crowd, enjoying the dark sounds of Salem. Ricci is sort of 'the girl who would marry Marilyn Manson for 2 weeks and live in a sex dungeon', so it sorta makes sense that she would go to a Salem show to enjoy the smooth, dark rapegaze sounds of the band.
This picture was taken of Jack Donoghue, John Holland, and Cristina Ricci canoodling... Jack looks SUPER HOT as always. But U can't help but wonder....Was Christina Ricci 'the original rapegazer' [via Wednesday Addams]?
Does Christina Ricci 'turn u on'?
R u sad she got a breast reduction?
Do u think she canoodled dark-style with Salem all nite?
Does Xtina Ricci 'try too hard' to jump on gothy microtrends?
Do u ever have a 'dark night' where u end up in some basement and every1 looks like Salem then u do hard drugs and wake up in a public park the next day?
As every1 already knows/has accepted, Interpol's only good album was their first one "Turn on the Bright Lights", but for some reason people are still into them and keep pretending that they are 'relevant' or something. They try to brand themselves as 'dark', which is I guess why they had Salem remix one of their songs.
Honestly didn't listen to much of this song, just a few seconds and thought, "Yep. That's Salem. Yeah. That is Paul Banks deep ass voice."
Is this song 'amazing' or just the typical Salem gimmicky darkwave rapegaze mp3?
Is Salem 'darker' than Interpol?
Will this remix 'help' or 'hurt' Salem's career?
R u worried abt Salem [via they look like they are dying right b4 our eyes]?
Can Interpol 'become relevant' again, or is it just time for them to be euthanized?
Has rapegaze gone 'mainstream'?
CONTROVERSIAL PHOTOS: Jack from Salem bronoodles with Tyler the Creator, passes out with black chickBy Carles on 05 Apr 2011
Yesterday, pictures of a controversial Salem show emerged... [link] Today, these photographs emerge.... There is a picture of Jack Donoghue from Salem 'partying'/'bronoodling' with horrorcore rapper Tyler the Creator. I am not sure if the whole 'Odd Future buzz' died [via Charlie Sheen of alt] or if people still buy into it. Anyways, it looks like Jack was partying hard.
Here is a picture of an unidentified African American looking to canoodle with Jack's passed out body. Feeling scared 4 him. I hope his ID, credit cards, apartment keys and social security card are safe. #pray4Jack
Sometimes I wonder if Jack
gets 'too dark'...
parties 2 hard...
I hope he is okay...
Maybe being in a buzzband is tough
Maybe we'll never understand
Does Jack look keut?
Do u think he is more authentic than Tyler the Creator?
Do u think they 'connected' abt being in a buzzband?
Is Jack the 'Kurt Cobain of indie'?
Does Salem party 2 hard? Are we watching them die right b4 our eyes?
John Holland is a member of the rape gaze buzzband Salem, but even though Jack Donoghue 'steals all of the headlines', the other band members are trying hard 2 get their time in the spotlight. As you can see, they performed LIVE in Los Angeles, and John Holland wore a thug-wave ski mask, and even a headlamp, similar to Geologist of the popular buzzband Animal Collective. I am not sure if he 'needed it to see' or if he is just trying to get more famous and find a gimmick.
It seems like JackyJackJack is getting pumped up for baseball season... Vibing out in a Philadelphia Phillies hat, pumped about the Cliff Lee signing.
Salem frontwoman, Heather Marlatt (also known as the Regine Chassagne of Salem) looks keut in a Detroit Red Wings jersey... I wonder if that is her Stanley Cup pick...
Her legs look healthy, sporty, and amazing... I hope she continues to wear sexi outfits on stage to increase her profile.
Do u think John Holland will become indie's new Geologist? Should he come up with a stage name that justifies his headlamp usage? Chilean_Miner_Bro? Spelunker?
Do u think John and Heather are 'more relevant' than Jack?
Is Jack 'overrated' as an indie sex icon?
Do u think there is 'tension' within the band abt Jack's indie celeb status?
Is Salem 'hella hot' or do they look unhealthy + scary?
Are Salem 'geniuses'?
Do u <3 Salem's affinity towards sports + sports teams?
Is Salem 'the hottest band' (physical looks) in the scene right now?
XX BONUS PICTURE OF JACK DONOGHUE LOOKING AT HIMSELF IN THE MIRROR XX
"Who r u? R u me? Whoa" -Keanu Reeves voice
It seems like the 2k10s might be defined as 'the era of the indie mascot.' First, Best Coast 'used' Snacks the Cat in order 2 raise her profile. Then Girl Talk made sure every1 knew he had a dog named Wally [link]. Then Jack Donoghue got some dogs [link], but he must have gotten rid of that dog because it wasn't alt enough [via Michael Vicks].
Now he has some sort of pink lil poodle dog. It seems like this dog is supposed to represent a 'totally alt' pet that cares abt taking its own personal brand 2 the next level. Many domestic pets are just 'happy 2 be loved' but don't invest the time and energy 2 truly be an 'alt celeb.'
Does Jack Donoghue look totally keut?
Does n e 1 know the name of this dog? Pinky? Gazey? Rapey?
Should he/she become the official mascot of Salem?
Should Pinky be dyed 'black' to match the rape gaze aesthetic?
Does Jack look keut?
Hi Jacky Jack Jack
How r u?
I saw u tweeted a pictures of 2 dogs
I am not sure if they are urs, or if they belong 2 some1 else
but it seems clear that all indie celebs think that they can turn their pets
into some sort of 'bloggable internet meme'
After the success of Snacks the Cat in 2k10
Girl Talk tweeted a picture of Wally the Dog 2 try to make his dog alt-pet-famous
Now every alt celeb indie buzzband member is buying pets
and tweeting abt them like crazie
just to get 'blog coverage'
by memefying their pets
Wish buzzbands would spend more time generating relevant MP3s
instead of grooming their pets for presentation 2 the internet
It seems kinda mean
From what I understand, most relevant buzzbands are on the road for ovr 50% of the year
in pursuit of more buzz all across the world
Why would u adopt a pet if u were just gonna be all neglectful?
Sorta ruins my vibes, like that 1 commercial with Sarah McLachlan
We must stop
Indie Celebrity Pet adoption
(but ur rlly keut Jack <3 <3 <3)
Hope Salem has a good 2k11
Who is the most relevant indie pet?
Is Snacks the Cat the original indie pet?
Will Snacks the Cat stay relevant in 2k11?
Is Socks the Cat the original 'famous pet'?
Will 'indie pets' ever be as famous as 'mainstream famous pets'?
Do u <3 Jack? Will he 'go solo' in 2k11?
Just saw this video of Jack Donoghue from Salem 'in the hospital.' He seems to be vibing out with some ethnic/MexiAlt QT, though, but I guess that doesn't matter bc he is a 'gay icon', so she is probably just vibing out with him and sharing tons of secrets because that is what girls do with gay men. They just say hi 2 a bunch of ppl then they play heavy metal music. Wonder if this is some sort of 'viral marketing' for Salem's next sound/aesthetic.
Can't help but wonder how Jack got 2 the hospital...
Hope he is okay...
Maybe his band is getting 2 much band after 'The Rape Gaze Explosion of 2k10.'
Maybe he was in a 4wheeling accient.
Maybe he fell off the stage.
Maybe he was 'pelted with rotten fruit' after SXSW
Maybe he fell from heaven...
<3 Jacky Jack Jack
The jj is some sort of 'failed' buzzband from 2k9 that does meaningful covers of mainstream rap songs, except they just sing over pre-existing songs. Not sure why they are buzzworthy. Here is an example of them singing over the XX's "Intro."
Does jj need to 'get their own goddamn songs'?
Did they ruin Akon's "Right Now" with this song?
Does the jj need to get a new band name that sounds less like The XX?
Do u think John Holland is 'pissed' that Jack is a bigger 'sex icon' than him?
Is Oliver Sim 'mad keut'?
Who would u rather be stuck on a desert island with: the jj, the xx, or Salem bros?
Do u wish more buzzbands hung out and took meaningful pix 2gthr?
Here is all the shit u were wearing
seems really expensive
like I could srsly pay my rent for several years
by reselling this shit

Wonder if yall have changed
Being all 'high end'
Appealing 2 mainstream fashion blogs or something
that rape gaze is going mnstrm
Can't believe yall are such hot, gay sex icons
Guess it was inevitable.
tons of blog buzz
rapegazing around the world
I'm proud of u
I only shop at Am Appy/UrbyOutties/relevant local thrift vintage store
So it is krazie that all of ur clothes cost so much.
Why did John shave his head?
Hope he is okay...
Pray 4 Jack...
Pray 4 Sleepy Jack
Does n e 1 know why clothes cost so much money?
Are they from another planet?
Are they made from the skin of endangered animals?
Brooklyn New York is the home of numerous Brooklyn-based buzzbands, but u never really think abt how bands get to Brooklyn. Some claim there is a 'legendary' L-train, which serves as a transportation system for 'effing hipsters' and 'relevant alternative celebrities' as they make their way to the the Brooklyn-based city of Brooklyn.
It seems like Salem frontman Jack Donoghue decided 2 'catch some ZZZZZs' as he made his way to Brooklyn. Hope it is safe on that train. U never know if ur gonna get 'shanked' when ur riding public transportation, but maybe he has a personal brand where ppl are scared of him, so they don't 'eff with him.'
He rlly looks like an angel, just getting his sleep on. U can tell it is him because of his 'trademark' Pittsburgh Pirates hat, keut rosary, and soccer shorts. Looks like a real QT.
Next time I analyze the lyrics of Salem, I'm just gonna think abt the dreams that u have when u fall asleep on a bus/subway/train. Ur kinda in fear for ur life. I've heard that some girls who use public transportation will watch guys 'masturbate' in front of them/do their best to grind their peens on them.
Ur such an angel, bb...
Get some sleep 2nite
Doctors say u need 8 to 10 hours of sleep per nite.
Have u ever seen an alternative celebrity using public transportation?
Who is the most famous alt celeb u have seen doing a 'normal person' thing?
Are alt celebs more like 'famous ppl' or 'unfamous ppl'?
Have u ever fallen asleep/blacked out on the subway?
Were u safe or did something traumatic happen 2 u?
Salem is a 2k10 rapegaze buzzband that sings about things like doing drugs, getting dark, suicide, choking ppl out, and have very intense sexual experience where u wake up the next morning and ur all like 'who am I? Was that really my spirit? Am I post-hornie?' Anyways, they are going kinda 'indie mainstream' and I'm not sure if it is because they are 'brilliant' or if it is bc ppl h8 them
Here is the 'article.' I am not sure if it even says anything notable, they are probably just like 'they are s000 dark yall, but getting tons of buzz. You oughtta check em out!' because that is basically what every magazine says about every band.
Jack was like "Listen. We're dark, okay? But we're also happie sometimes. Stop calling us rapegaze, yall!"
"We're all very sensitive people and there's a lot we've gone through," says Donaghue, sporting white soccer shorts, and a pendant on his bre chest. "Have we been in really dark places, or done drugs? Have we also been in really happy places? I feel no interest in fulfilling an image we really didn't try and put out. People get disappointed by the world and you have expectations when you're young. I think that transition was really hard for us, and it still is."
Sorta wanna wear white soccer shorts with Jackie <3 <3 <3
Do yall <3 Salem or do u h8 them?
Are they 'too dark' 4 u?
Does any1 read GUYLON Magazine?
Do u think Salem is too dark for a profile in "Nylon for Bitches Magazine"?
Do yall <3 the Nylon brand?
Are magazines gonna die?
Will Salem land on the cover of Rolling Stone in 2k11?
Should Salem produce the next Madonna album?
Anyways, here is a video of QT JackJack rapping at South-Bi
I am not sure whether or not Salem is 'good' or if ppl even like them, but when I blog abt them, I feel like I am exploring some sort of 'darker side' of me that I want to get more in touch with. Also just think they look rlly 'dark' in this picture, so thought it would be chill 2 post it so that I could get more 'goth-indie' hits from darkwave bros.
Anyways, some band remixed some Salem song. Haven't heard the original/can't really tell the difference between a lot of Salem songs, but I really dig their rapegazey brand. Need to see them live soon so I can really see what they are all about/if their shows are rlly boring, or possibly an 'erotic fuckfest.'
Salem Asia (Jokers of the Scene Remix)
Really can't tell if this song is even bloggable.
Might have just posted this 2 say:
-Jack is haute
-Salem is a rape gaze band
-I feel 'dark' [via wearing black clothes]
-I am so dark that I transcend the concept of hetero _ homo sexuality
-to embed this video that I always embed of Jack bro rapping at SXSW
I don't know what it is abt u...
but u have my attn
Can't tell if ur 'amazing'
or if u 'completely suck'
Or if I am really turned on by yall
but u have me on the edge of my seat
with a mild erection
and i want to explore
the dark side of 'buzzbands' with u
Do u <3 Salem?
Is their music 'good' or 'bullshit'?
R u turned on by Jack, the girl, or 'the other dude'?
Who is the keutest member of the Salems?
Do u think Salem is the next MGMT/ Pashy Pit?
Jack Donoghue is the lead singer of the popular rape gaze buzzband Salem. Many ppl h8 the term 'rape gaze' bc they think it is abusive bc women get raped, but they don't realize that men can get raped+abused too, so they should probably chill out and try to get dark with the music.
It seems like Salem is releasing tons of dark memes trying to brand themselves as rlly rapegazey. I am not sure what these 2 bros are doing, but I have read it is called autoerotic asphyxiation. U basically cum + lose consciousness at the same time due to lack of air. Some ppl really get off 2 it.
Wonder if this is a 'new kind of authentic bro' where u torture/pleasure one another in ur spare time. Feel like that bro's shit eating grin is pretty chill, but I would probably have the same face if a buzzband bro 'choked me out.'
Do yall <3 Jackie D?
Do u wish he would choke u out?
Do yall ever hang out with ur bros shirtless and do sexual/painful things 2 one another?
Do yall wanna hang out with Jack Donny?
Is Jack Donoghue revolutionizing the gay indie male brand?
Will the rest of the indie gays have to 'step it up' 2 compete with him?
Are u crushing on Jack?
Have u ever been choked out?
XX BONUS JACK RAPPING VIDEO XX
Jack Donoghue is the relevant 'front man' of Salem, who vibes out hard and plays some spookwave rapegaze crunk bro shit. It seems like he is becoming a more relevant indie celeb 'by the day', and Salem is getting tons of blog coverage.
Anyways, it looks like Jack was Dog the Bounty Hunter 4 Halloween. Do yall watch that show? Did Jack 'crush it' with his costume? Does he look
Do he look just like an alt version of Dog the Bounty Hunter?
Is Dog the Bounty Hunter a chill bro? Do u think he would vibe 2 Salem?
Does Jack always 'crush it' on stage?
Do yall <3 Jack's costume?
Do u <3 Jack?
Is Jack Donoghue the new Indie 'it boy' of 2k10?
Is Dog The Bounty Hunter going 2 burn in hell for killing so many delinquent meth heads?
Is Salem ur fave band of 2k10?
Oh Jack. U could bounty hunt me n e day...
<3 <3 <3
Just watched this shaky footage of Salem 'killing it' live. There are apparently multiple singers in Salem. Sometimes Jack bro will rap all crunk, and other times this qt broad will sing. Apparently her name is Heather Marlatt. Sorta vibing out to her, think she is rlly keut. Like the next female indie sex icon.
Can yall tell if the band is terrible, or is this just terrible video footage?
Do u <3 or h8 Salem?
Do u think the 'rape gaze' genre/coverage has 'gone too far'?
Anyways, Just wanna focus on my girl Heather. Seems like she is vibing out in a big baggy football jersey
I did some internet research, and found out that it is a Wisconsin Badgers College Football Jersey.
Do u think football jerseys are going to become the next alt female trend?
Do u ever wear ironic / vintage sports jerseys?
Are 'ironic basketball jerseys' no longer a relevant alt trend? [link]
Here is another performance of them getting all rape gazey [via post-shoegaze].
R u vibing, or do u h888 salem?
Is Salem the worst buzzband in the world?
Is Salem the best buzzband in the world?
Should I feel 'entry level' if I am not 'dark' enough to 'get' Salem?
Is Salem the 'must purchase in advance' ticket for the next season of concerts?
Is Heather gonna replace Alice Glass?
Should she get crazier on stage to 'build up' her persona?
Should she braid her hair?
Do u <3 Heather?
Is she the next indie 'it girl'?
Is she gonna replace Alice Glass now that Bobbie Smith replaced Alice in Chrystal Castles?
Jack Donoghue is the 'front man' of the popular 2k10 rape gaze buzzband SALEM. Even though they have been around for a while, they got a lot of buzz after the genre RAPE GAZE was meme-fied in their Pitchfork review, and now every1 wants to know more about 'rape gaze', experience it live, see how dark u can get.
Did u hop off the chillwave, and r u vibing the rape gaze?
Anyways, just saw Jack Donoghue in a picture chillin with Courtney Love. He seems like a 'pimp', vibing out, even though I think he is 'openly gay', he probs could 'get it in' it if he wanted 2. If ur in a buzzband, girls will do anything 4 u. Can't even tell if he is wearing pants in these pix.
Do yall <3 Jack?
Is he the new male sex icon in indie music?
Will he become part of the gay indie mafia with Edward Droste (Grizzly Bear), the guy from Bloc Party, and Rostam [via Vampy Weeks]?
R u turned on by him?
Do u think Courtney Love <3s rape gaze music?
Do u think Jack could replace Kurt Cobain?
Is Salem getting 'hella famous' after winning CMJ, and will they 'go mainstream'?
Gonna embed this video of Jack rapping everytime I blg abt him

Salem is widely regarded as 'the world's worst buzzband', but are growing into 'mainstream indie darlings' by fans who want to </embed>
Just watched this video of Salem performing at CMJ on the New York Times blog page. It seems like after their disastrous SXSW, Salem has 'rebranded' and is becoming a 'hot indie commodity' and will probably open for the Arcade Fire / MGMT / Phoenix / Grizzly Bear / The XX soon.
It seems like the reviewer was like, "It sucked, but it was awesome. I finally 'get' Salem cuz I wanna vibe to rape gaze":
Salem is infamous for its alienating approach to the independent music business. So it was a little surprising to see the trio — John Holland, Heather Marlatt and Jack Donoghue — dutifully play a short set for their label’s humdrum CMJ showcase on Tuesday night at Santo’s Party House. But thankfully, the band returned to dissonant form with Wednesday night’s absurdly exclusive, secretive, hard-to-find, smoke-filled basement show at Ramiken Crucible, a narrow basement gallery no one’s ever heard of that sits south of East Broadway, deep in the Lower East Side.
I feel kinda sad that they didn't talk about the controversial genre name 'rape gaze.' It seems like if Salem is going 2 'break thru 2 the chillwave indie mnstrm', they need mainstream critics to talk abt what their music sounds like. Maybe the NYTimes would face backlash if they used 'rape' in a genre name
Just wish I coulda been in the smokey club, vibing out to some rape gaze
Around 1:30 a.m., Salem finally crept out onto the stage. Shrouded in billowing smoke and lit by an eerie tractor beam of green light, Holland opened with blistering, droning guitar. When it was all over, rapturous cries begged and pleaded for an encore. There was none.
Would yall have 'begged' 4 an Encore?
Do u think Salem is becoming a mainstream indie force?
Is Salem 'effing terrible', or 'so terrible that they are the best band in the world bc u know u can go to their concert and lamestreamers won't invade'?
Has Salem opened up a new authentic artistic space?
Is Salem 'too dark' 4 u? U just wanna vibe out to MGMT's "KIDS" or what?
Who is the sexiest member of Salem that can be turned into an indie sex icon?
Do u hope bubblegum indie magazines like Nylon do 'sexie' photo spreads of Salem?
Salem is known as the world's worst buzzband after they had some 'effing terrible' performances at SXSW sometime between 1-20 blog years ago [link]. Time moves so fast that it is difficult to remember when exactly memorable event happened, but here is a video of Salem performing live so u can 'recapture the magic' [via crappiness]. Do u vibe out 2 them?
Anyways, they apparently have some new album out, and Pitchfork decided to give them a 7.5. Apparently, the whole gimmick with them is that they are 'brilliant' in the studio, but 'effing blow' in the live setting. Wonder if they just need to adopt a Crystal Castles type of setup and hide behind lights + loud noises. Overall, this is a 'pretty boring meme', but what made it juicy was when Pitchfork dropped the sweet baller ass genre name "rape gaze" into the review. Unfortunately,
Seems like 'rape gaze' has a huge opportunity to become the next chillwave, since it is way more hardcore than the term 'witch house'. Unfortunately, Pitchfork 'retracted' the use of RAPE GAZE in their review, and totes backpedaled, even though the name is hella sweet.
Editor's Note: This review contains a list of the various names that have been used to describe the music of SALEM and/or other similar artists, among them "drag" and "witch house." It originally also listed "rape gaze", a term coined by Michigan band CREEP, as formerly listed on their MySpace and reported in the New York Press. The band today disowned the phrase and will no longer be using it, expressing to The Village Voice, they "would never want to advocate sexual violence against any human being. It was a play on words which we never expected to be used as an actual genre."
Are yall sad that RAPE GAZE might not catch on?
Did Salem deserve a 7.5
Salem trade in apathy. In an article for Butt magazine last year, band member John Holland copped to a past lifestyle of heavy drug use and teenage prostitution-- then he offered the interviewer some speed. The band was featured in The New York Times Arts section's fall preview this year, but one member couldn't be bothered to wake up on time for the interview. When Times writer Ben Ratliff pressed the band on the lyrics to early single "Trapdoor", Holland replied, "It doesn't really matter to me whether people know what the lyrics are or not." Even when XLR8R's Brandon Ivers recently asked Salem about their much-blogged-about disaster of a FADER Fort appearance at last year's SXSW-- a performance that could be featured in the dictionary as the definition of "not giving a shit"-- band members Heather Marlatt and Jack Donoghue claimed not to have seen the video, while Holland later stated about the band's live presence, "I don't even care. I totally don't."
Damn. Mad Rape Gaze.
Afraid of this dark world.
Anyways, here is another performance where they 'effing kill it'
Does this band sound 'rape gazey' 2 u?
Is it unchill that Pitchfork 'backpedaled' on the rape gaze genre?
Is Rape Gaze the new chillwave?
Is 'Snuff Gaze' a chiller alternative since not that many ppl know what
Was Pitchfork 'right' 2 take a stand against female violence?
Is it unchill that music writer bros can just 'make light' of sexual violence and throw around terms like that just to 'get bros talking'?
Does Salem 'effing blow' or are they better than Best Coast/WAVVES?
Should [act of sexual violence] + wave OR gaze be the next big musical genre?
Should we lump Crystal Castles into the rape gaze genre just to 'keep this meme going'?
What happens when the rape gaze and slutwave genres merge?
"Shame on u p4k, Shame on all yall."
