Remember Silverchair, the third generation Aussie grunge band known for that song 'Tomorrow'? Deadmau5 does, and his musings on their current state makes our tally of this week's best tweets. So does Mutemath's fun little YouTube trick and Tegan and Sara's more down-to-Earth announcement that will bring joy to the hearts of their fans the world over.
This Week’s Best Tweets
Gotye was all up in arms earlier in the week when he blogged about somebody stealing his van, but it's his follow-up post that makes our tally of this week's best -- thanks to his reference to his "honky horn." Mayer Hawhorne is gearing up for a tour with Foster the People, but is having narrowing down his set list for the jaunt. And A Fine Frenzy's Alison Sudol questions a very bad choice she recently made. What could that be about?
Maybe you remember back in the day when the Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. sported a very large afro? In one of the Twitter posts to make our list of the week's best, he reveals he's not going be bringing it back any time soon. Elsewhere, Best Coast seem to be getting sick of traveling so much -- such is the dark side of being rock stars -- and look for salvation in an airport bar.
We're not sick of hearing Counting Crows play 'Mr. Jones' after all these years, but we understand that they may be getting a little tired of still playing it every time they appear on TV -- tired enough to tweet about it, and land on our list of the week's best tweets to boot. Foster the People consider who they would 'Punk'd' if given the chance (they have some awesome answers), and Blitzen Trapper experience a Lilith Fair world outside the Indigo Girls.
Usually we get sick of rock stars complaining about celebrity, but we'll let Flea get away with it this time -- and even give the Red Hot Chili Pepper one of this week's best tweets. He does make a good point. So does Neko Case, a habitual Twitterer who confronts another modern dilemma with her latest tweet. And Silversun Pickups singer Brian Aubert considers sharing his talent at a hotel wedding -- does he ultimately do it? The world may never know.
Who would've thought that Ted Leo watches 'Smash'? The indie singer's post about making up lyrics to songs on the NBC drama makes our list of the week's best tweets, along with tweets about Florence + the Machine's leading lady being joined onstage by a little fan in Sydney, Australia and Neko Case's take on the movie 'Mildred Pierce.'
