"Mr. Danger"? IGNORANCE!

CAUTION: Over the weekend, a short psychic escaped from police custody.
He is to be considered a small medium at large.

Or a joke.

Either way, the article is much-appreciated by this fan.

they refer to the band as "they" several times, unless that was just some undetected sarcasm....

I think it was a joke.

Kind of a funny one, actually.

....a little band called Nirvana that totally ripped off Harvey Danger.

This was funnier. What the hell is "post-grunge" anyway?

I've never liked Pitchfork, and I don't mean to start now. Anyways, now that reviews should start rolling in, we should make a thread dedicated to all that can be found.

Pray to the God that you don't quite believe in
To bless this fleeting moment
Yeah, YEAH, YEAH!

Sure, I know the definition, but I just wonder why they call music that is neither grunge, nor progressive enough to have a "post-" post-grunge.

Another note - Weezer is post-grunge? I thought they were like, the anti-grunge.

They've gotta call it something.

Keep in mind that this is Pitchfork: if it sounds pretentious and oblique, it's good enough to print. (I think that's actually the whole of their style guide right there.)

By "they" I just mean, you know, the masses (with or without the 'm' in front). The Pitchfork joke seemed to stem from a similar disbelief in the post-grunge title, hence, the reference to Nirvana ripping off Harvey Danger. I could be wrong. It is entirely possible that Pitchfork's writers are not clever enough to make a joke like that. Because it's not officially a joke until you're equating someone's music with some kind of self-mutilating activity, like digging one's eyes out with a fork and Fischerspooner.
