Rave and Hardcore YouTube Comments Will Restore Your Faith in Humanity
It’s commonly held knowledge that most YouTube comments rank up there with Houellebecq novels and Somme fatality statistics as some of the most depressing things you can read. Even if it’s a video of an elephant cuddling a pug or a Philip Glass recital, you’ll usually find yourself greeted with the same shitstorm of racism, homophobia, misogyny, accusations of n00bery, and somebody who says they’ll put a curse on you if you don’t repost a story about a girl who died in a car crash to at least ten of your friends.
Thankfully, there are a few diamonds of decency in this online hate-pit, and they usually arrive beneath music videos. Sometimes you read stories about aging couples who had their first kiss in a Wisconsin diner as “Tiny Dancer” played on the jukebox. Sometimes you see really enthusiastic Europeans thanking the uploader of a death metal track with a smiley face. And sometimes, just sometimes, YouTube commenters prove they’re capable of being funny.
However, if you want to find the most inspiring and poignant posts on YouTube, you could do far worse than loading up a rave/hardcore playlist comprised of tracks from the late 80s and early 90s.

Because the comments on those videos are genuinely some of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read.

San Diego’s Crocodiles are readying the release of their upcoming Crimes of Passion LP with the release of the first track, “Cockroach”. The band have jumped straight into Crimes of Passion off the back of last years Endless Flowers and opted for the help of Sune Rose (The Raveonettes) Wagner. “Cockroach” is a far cleaner sound for Crocodiles. It feels like that’s all we ever say about the band, but their snarly punk sound gets more refined on each album and this one is no different. With their trademark organs still in place, it’s yet another step in the right direction.
Crimes Of Passion is set for an August 20 release on Frenchkiss Records.
