Brett Meisner, Rock 'n' Roll badboy
May 30, 2005 8:45 PM   Subscribe

"Brett Meisner has helped to put the 'rock' back into 'rock and roll' forever!" said Kurt Loder in 2003. Given Meisner's impact as a music critic and rock 'n' roll badboy, this is something of an understatement...

oh nooooo!! MeFi has been infected by the Meisner now...

This stuff is, by far, the finest trolling on the internet today. Guaranteed to enrage anyone who considers themselves a music fan. It's the little things, you see, the well-placed factual errors and all...

Plus there's always the nagging suspicion that it might all actually be serious, which would only serve to make it more funny.

His photo showed up in a lowtax rant once, unfortunately (fortunately?) I can't find it.

Wikipedia says it's a "parody".

"We Don't Need No Education, We Don't Need No More Control"

Indeed. And the explanation that Punk was crap because it didn't fill stadiums like Ratt and KISS was pure gold. Once I stopped swearing long enough to get it.

"I know Henry. He’s a nice guy. But even he knows the whole thing was a farce. As for the rumors of Henry being gay. They’re false. He dates women. Although the fact that he writes poetry, lifts weights and likes to jump into piles of shirtless sweaty men probably doesn’t help."

heh. funny. thanks.

I had to work pretty hard to get a chuckle out of this. It might just be me, but I thought that this was an awful lot of work for some mildly amusing results.

Well, I suspect that Loder quote was fake, but even if it wasn't, Curt Loder once said Green Day was the most inventive band he'd ever heard.

This from a guy who lived in London in the heyday of the Clash.
