Ke$ha and Tim "mofuking" Armstrong Together At Last

Posted by on Wed, Feb 1, 2012 at 3:25 PM

I haven't loved everything Tim Armstrong has ever done, especially post-1996 (dude's collaborated with Good Charlotte and Mest, after all), but who would've ever guessed the scrappy 22-year-old bassist in Op Ivy was going to grow up to collaborate with pop "weirdo"* Ke$ha:

Speaking of Ke$ha. Remember that one time Paul Constant bravely attended her show at the Showbox at the Market? Funniest review ever.

(Thanks for the tip, Ian.)

*Weirdo is only in quotes because she's not really weird. She just wants you to think she's weird. Which isn't weird, it's marketing. At least she does nice things for charity, though, right?

Also applicable for Tim Armstrong.

Guitar. Matt Freeman played bass of course.

Didn't he write one of Pink's albums too? Gross.

@2 Beat me to it. And dude hasn't done much worthwhile since 1998 in my opinion, though I really liked his solo album a few years ago with The Aggrolites as his backing band (then again, I think that was mostly because of their involvement, not Armstrong's).

@1 I dont get the hate for people like tim armstrong or mike ness. They've literally been doing this their entire lives. What exactly do you have against them?

@5:
compare the album "Mommys Little Monster" to literally anything else Ness has done, and it might help answer your question. I dont necessarily need to defend him, but its undeniable that pre/post prison Ness recordings are two different things alltogether.

of course if you like good music, and dislike boring music like me...the later you go with Ness the worse it gets.

@5: They are uninspiring at best and perpetual fakes at worst. They lack originality and add nothing to the canon of punk music. They both basically front cover bands except they add "original" lyrics. Rise up.
