Daft Punk

Daft Punk are back, as you know because you don't live in a cave with no internet or cell service, but now it's officially in a big way. The duo's new album, Random Access Memories, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Album Chart, selling 339,000 copies their first week. The single, "Get Lucky," is currently at #10 on the Hot 100.

The National's Trouble Will Find Me did pretty well its debut week two, enough for it to hit #3 with 75,000 copies. Sandwiched in between is former Hootie & the Blowfish singer Darius Rucker whose new solo album, True Believers, sold 83,000 copies putting it at #2. The #4 and #5 slots are held by rapper French Montana's Excuse My French and The Great Gatsby soundtrack.

Last week's #1, Vampire Weekend's Modern Vampires of the City, fell to #7.

Still no word on Daft Punk touring plans. What gives?

Personally I like the new iPods better. There's just so much more diversity from track to track!

BV meme jokes (hummus, daft punk, ipods etc) are about as funny as Bob Hope jokes.

If Kanye West sold that many records in one week he would hang himself.

Congrats DP!! Thanks for having me along for the rhythmic ride :) Quinn (Drummer/Percussionist)

Ten years ago we had Steve Jobs, Bob Hope, and Johnny Cash. Now we have no Hope, no Jobs, and no Cash.

Sorry, had to do it.

Are there any heterosexual men left making music anywhere?

Very high expectations but it merely sounds like Chromeo circa 2009.

Excellent song too bad there is no real video. Seems a waste to turn a static image into a video. Well except for that brief moment there is some motion. But that's just geeky me.

This record is great! Makes me shake my white ass like a nigga child in the flow of an open hydrant.

Hootie was #2? Jesus, it's ridiculous how decent pop music has been marginalized. Say what you will about Vampire Weekend, but when a popular and (for the sake of argument) critical 'sensation' like them can't even sell 200,000 units in two weeks, it's a pretty sad state of affairs for rock music.

It's a terrible fucking state of affairs.

You literally have to be a legacy band to sell like 20k copies.

The kids are allwrong.


They are digging their own musical graves into a pedestrian hell paved with beige carpeting & condo-brown walls.
