    Man, Castro dead in 2016, but then Ron Glass dead in 2016.

    Talk about the year the lord giveth and taketh away.

    Chemical Brothers are great but I don't think they ever made anything that hit me as hard as Fat of the Land

    Different strokes for different folks. I still love Fat Of The Land, but I probably listen to Surrender three times as much.

    2016 and beyond was fucked the moment Bowie died.

    I'll always listen to anything they do, and probably love it. But Fat of the Land is probably my favourite all time album so nothing matches

    RIP Castro, I guess.

    If we're going to view Fidel Castro as a villain, lets compare him to previous Cuban leaders.

    At least Castro didn't sell out his country to organized crime.

    I was on a heavy early-90's Blur kick a couple years back (Modern Life is Rubbish, Park life, Great Escape). Each has its own filler, but take the good material of each and sync it to one playlist and you have a damn good pop-rock double album.

    The guitar riff of There's No Other Way is also genius in its blend of simplicity and expression.

    Why yes I do enjoy Blur (also Pulp). Lush is my go-to 90's UK band though.

    Radiohead are one of those bands where I just can't get into them

    People love 'em and I listen and I don't dislike it, it's just I don't get what the fuss is about

    But then other people feel that way about stuff I love it's just a taste thing

    Did said organized crime kill and torture as many civilians as he did?

    Not trying to sound smart, honestly curious.

    Yeah there's that, oh and also 5 UK #1 albums, a Guinness world record in 1999 for fastest album sales ever in the UK (think about that for a second) and somewhere around 18 million total album sales worldwide, but nevermind about all that.

    primus sucks, dude

    I dunno, they gave us this...thing.

    I like Creep. I don't think I can name another of their songs.

    I like OK Computer, The Bends, and In Rainbows.

    I understand why the other albums are well regarded but they just aren't for me.

    At least Batistas regime did. 20,000+ in just 7 years. Communist Cubas numbers aren't much better (estimates average at 15,000) but at least they're spread out over 50 years.

    I find the whole fixation on Castro weird because he was pretty much a communist only in name?

    Not gonna pretend he was 100% amazing or terrible, but I gotta admit that him being a burr in the backside of America for so long is kinda funny.

    While I have no opinions on Cuba itself. I do think that Cuba's involvement in Angola was rad.

    he really wasn't past the 70s though

    we kinda had the embargo and just sorta let it go for so long because nobody remembered what it was like to not have it

    Cuba definitely was a burr in the backside after the 70s. eg, Angola in '88.

    I'm not super attached to Radiohead but I have listened to exactly enough to totally get why Radiohead fans hate Creep (and its reputation as their one-hit-wonder moment) so much

    Same with Modest Mouse and Float On

    Fidel Castro was absolutely relevant to the entirety of South Florida past the 1970s. Nowhere else though.
