"Everybody Hates Me" - The Chainsmokers

David Turner Mar 16, 2018. 0 comments

The Chainsmokers, the EDM duo of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart , are sad bros. They’ve always been sad bros—from their overly nostalgic hit with Halsey, “Closer,” to their murderous track, “You Owe Me,” right up to their latest single, “Everybody Hates Me,” released Friday—the dudes are bummed, man. (Listen to it below.)

The lyrics in “Everybody Hates Me” detail just how damn hard it is to be famous, and just how damn anxiety-inducing it is to be famous on social media—“I post a picture of myself when I’m feeling lonely,” Pall sings. The latter is a sentiment we can all understand: no one expresses their truest self online. But is that a bad thing?

Musically, too, the song mirrors the Chainsmokers’ recent move away from EDM and towards radio alt-rock, a la their Twenty One Pilots’ worshipping track “Sick Boy” from earlier this year.

It really looks like the Chainsmokers are working to move away from their days as fist-pumping festival headliners to, instead, like, wallow in their emotions. I’m here for either one, just so the sad bros know everyone doesn’t hate them.

Google to Disrupt Record Labels With a New, Boring Record Label Google to Disrupt Record Labels With a New, Boring Record Label

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: “Record labels are obsolete.” One of the most persistent—and idiotic—narratives in a post-Napster music industry is that record labels are dinosaurs who refuse to die. This myth endures despite the fact that labels do more than print CDs and ask an artist if they wanna coordinate a press tour while recording an...
