Poor Usher is doing the half time show and you'd think it was Taylor Swift's show.

It sucked Steely Dan never did an SNL appearance. But they did play on the Today Show oddly enough. And they were friends with Chevy Chase, who was briefly their drummer before they got signed.

:olol: The Today Show seems like the best fit for 2000s Steely Dan. Walter and Donald epitomized uncool for millennials back then. They didn't have the post-ironic, "yacht rock" fanbase like today. I was aware of Steely Dan back then as a middle schooler, and I don't know if I could think of a less cool band from that time period. Two Against Nature sweeping the Grammys felt like a war crime.

They could've had a renaissance these days if Walter was still alive.

I heard them a lot growing up because they're one of my moms favorite bands. They were a little cool in the late 90s because of the Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz and MF DOOM samples. And they would have been sampled more if they didn't charge 100% writing credits. But yeah, beating Marshall Mathers LP and Kid A was a joke. It was boomers trying to make up for them having the misfortune of releasing albums versus Stevie Wonder at his peak winning every year.

The car was always tuned to classic rock when I was a kid. I loved that shit as a sixth grader. I remember hearing Deacon Blues and deciding to play saxophone at school. But Steely Dan sounded great while divorced from anything remotely modern. So it felt gross and stupid to see these goobers accept the country's top music award from other old has-beens ... wait a minute ...



It's fucking Stevie Wonder! He was still there, after all that time.

Shame on Bette ruining Stevie's joke of seeing the winner.

It's funny to think now of the Pet Shop Boys could ever be a one hit wonder

That's actually too good. None of the music videos they'd air after that would be any interesting. You couldn't go from that into "I Will Always Love You" and "Runaway Train".

Looking on YouTube, they had three types of music videos in 1994:

• Artsy black and white (R&B ballads)
• Artsy Bohemian in sepia tones (Ripping off Losing My Religion)
• Angry Bohemian for grunge acts (industrial junk and scary stuff)

We could've used more schizo Tetsuo Iron Man shit. Stone Temple Pilots got close to that.

I was about to say hang on? Two Tribes was just as big as Relax, if not bigger.

I forgave calling Mike Oldfield a one hit wonder when he clearly wasn't, but I won't stand for this!

Todd needs to get his head out of his fucking ass and do actual one hit wonders... Like Len!
