Rolling stone calls flagpole sitta best of 1998
Hey those guys were good


Quote:Every detail in "Flagpole Sitta" is brilliant: Evan Sult's mammoth drum hook, Jeff Lin's noise guitar squiggles, the late Aaron Huffman's bass thud, the jolly "ba ba ba" back-up vocals, even the quizzical title. "I wish I had had the fucking sense to change the name of the song," Nelson once said. "'I'm Not Sick but I'm Not Well' is what everybody else calls it. If I had done that...we'd be having this conversation on my yacht." Yet that's part of the song's legend. You could hear it as satire, doing for grunge miserabilism what LCD Soundsystem's "Losing My Edge" did for DJ culture. But it's also full of genuine fury, which is why it's never felt dated. ("If you're bored then you're boring" sure predicted the hell out of the social-media era, didn't it?) "Flagpole Sitta" will always gleam with rock & roll heart – not sick, not well, just loud and alive. Salute!

Thank you for linking that.

Having trouble wrapping my head around the fact "Crow remains a boss—still writing great songs" and "'Flagpole Sitta' will always gleam with rock & roll heart" somehow are the same author.

We can talk about it later
But there's no later
Is there?
