Here’s What I Think About…The Matt Wilson vs. Thomas Nassiff Debate

While scanning my Tumblr dashboard this morning, I came across a post that was reblogged by my friend Mike Moschetto (the original post came from PupFresh).

“Matt Wilson (singer of Set Your Goals) has taken to his twitter to call out those who have been hating on their new record. Specifically, Thomas Nassiff (AbsolutePunk.net reviewer) for buying Set Your Goals merch after a negative review.”

It’s not that female-fronted bands don’t exist. In my local scene alone, I can name a bunch: Life on Hold, Defeo, Sincerely, The Management….the list goes on. Think back in time, too. Hole? Blondie? Bikini Kill? It’s not like girls are new to rock music, by any means. But why is it that the only female-fronted band that people seem to know is Paramore?

Here’s part of the problem: Hayley Williams is a freak…
